As I was brainstorming and planning out this week’s blog content, I was scrolling through some Facebook groups that I’m a part of and saw a couple posts from people asking, “What are y’ alls current favorites right now?” As I read this, I was immediately inspired to create this blog post today as I thought this was the perfect way to kind of round up all the things I’m currently loving this month as we head into fall, such as my essential clothing pieces I’ve been loving this month, current makeup favorites, and other random things. Hope you all like the post! I’m really considering maybe doing posts like this either once a month or once per season, let me know what you think!
Happy Friday friends! Is it just me or did this week fly by? I was on a little break from school this week and it went way too fast, as always lol.
But I am so excited about fall this year, I think mainly because of the fashion and all the fall leaves! Mini skirts and corduroy are becoming such a trend right now for fall and it is actually one of my favorite trends, they’re just so cute! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was absolutely raving about this trend on my most recent IGTV video in a fall clothing try-on haul!
Does anyone else actually really struggle with finding clothes to wear this time of year? I don’t know about everywhere else, but in Seattle, this summer/fall transition period is SO hard outfit wise. It’s cold AF in the morning and then SO hot in the afternoon, it’s like do I pack an extra outfit with me during the day to change into later or just suffer from either being too hot or too cold? The struggle is SO real. But, I have been shopping around and have found some super cute pieces that are absolutely perfect for this season transition time of year! And I have found that the key is light layers that you can adjust throughout the day.
It’s kind of that time of year where you can start to wear sweaters, but not too thick of sweaters, more lightweight and loose fit kind of sweaters. I am so pumped to finally be wearing and shopping around for sweaters again though, gets me so excited! I found the cutest transition sweater at Nordstrom a couple weeks ago and I love it, it has the cutest twist detailing in the front and is a really nice waffle-cut material, so cute and cozy! I am wearing a size XXS for reference and it does fit TTS with a bit of a crop to it as well. I recommend wearing high rise or mid rise bottoms with this sweater.
Today was just one of those perfect fall days you could hope for, living in Seattle. With clear blue skies, shining sun, and leaves all around, everywhere was picture perfect. I figured, why not dress up a little, curl my hair, and enjoy a nice relaxing fall day?
I recently purchased this sweater/cardigan from American Eagle Outfitters and am so obsessed. It goes with literally everything! (Same with my new favorite pair of booties!) See how I sport it here with one of my new favorite go-to outfits for fall!

I finally made it to the pumpkin patch yesterday, after at least 10 years of missing out each fall. Totally got me in the October/fall spirit! Walking around in the cool air, picking out pumpkins in the patch, walking through the corn maze, taking fall photos, and everything else to get in the holiday spirit.
As a Seattleite, it’s hard to find places out of the city where you can go to still participate in old-fashioned holiday festivities. Fortunately enough, Stocker Farms in Snohomish is that perfect getaway for the true fall festivities experience. Just on the outskirts of urban cities, Snohomish was the perfect place to enjoy the fall day.
Time for my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte! (I’ve never had one before!)
P.S. How cute is this sweater for fall!? It is currently under $45 at Nordstrom, total must-have for fall and the perfect color to match the season!
