Fall Fashion Must Haves & a HUGE Thanks

It is suddenly COLD! Oh my lord, this may be fall but I need my warm winter socks and a sweater so it’s time to shop, mama! Fall Fashion Must Haves contains my personal fall essentials.

I love Ilse Jacobsen everything. I found this photo of me at the beach in a listing ON EBAY while browsing for a pair of boots…ha! Photo: Melissa James Studio. Fall Fashion Must Haves

And when I say “fall fashion,” do know I am not ‘one to watch’ for fashion over 50 or fashion anything. Good gracious.

Ask my family. Most days it’s a small miracle if I manage to leave the house without looking like a Glamour DON’T in college dorm-wear paired with lipstick schmeared front teeth.

Fall Fashion Must Haves

I’m very much a minimalist compared to other women in my family and my friends when it comes to clothes – and just like with my interiors, I try to buy less but better. But let’s look at some fall makeup first.

I do like my makeup…it’s like an art project to complete everyday!

My mom introduced me to Chanel – just when you thought all mascaras were created equal…

CC Cream

My complexion is less than ideal right now since the state of my ‘gut health’ is healing. Breakouts on my forehead and nose seem to be associated with gallbladder/liver/bile production/nutrition/absorption issues. Before I concluded this, I tried changing everything (skincare, laundry detergent, makeup…) and tried everything. While things heal and my health improves, I use this wonderful CC cream for full coverage to feel a bit more confident.

Concealer…holy inherited dark undereye circles, batman!

It is velvety and does what it says. There is a reason people are nuts about chalk paint and mineral paints, and this product is sort of the equivalent for painting the face.

I like vegan leather jackets, and my own well-worn black moto jacket was sadly trampled recently in a concert hall so I’m considering this one.

A HUGE Thanks.

First of all, to YOU.

You are so kind and supportive of me whether I am knee deep in DIY, trying on new design ideas, exploring timeless and tranquil interiors, struggling with my health, or finding meaning through writing about my personal spiritual journey.

THANK YOU FOR READING with TENDERNESS.

I love that you come here for peaceful inspiration and friendship with a kindred spirit. I appreciate that in today’s busy online world, you take time to visit, pin, comment, and shop here in LOVELYLAND when there are plenty of pretty places on the web to browse.

Secondly, to my Fabulous SPONSORS.

Believe it or not, I will soon be entering my 10th year of blogging at Hello Lovely! I am only able to devote the many hours of creating daily content with help from sponsors and you. These incredibly design savvy brands support the blog, and you have seen their logos on the sidebar at right.

They didn’t ask me to mention them or say lovely things about them here; I simply desire to offer my thanks for what they do creatively in the world of design and for their ongoing support of Hello Lovely.

Say hello to two brands in the business of making lovely things who sponsor my efforts here.

Moore & Giles

ENRICH, INSPIRE and SERVE CUSTOMERS, PEOPLE, and COMMUNITY.

Who They Are…Moore & Giles designs and develops the world’s most luxurious natural leathers for leather upholstery, residential, hospitality, aviation and automotive leathers. In 2007, Moore& Giles introduced a collection of luxury leather bags and accessories as an additional avenue to showcase the inherent beauty and timeless appeal of their natural leathers. Sold across the country and online on the Moore & Giles site, this collection is constantly evolving.

I especially admire the core values of Moore & Giles: Kindness, Perseverance, Authenticity, Creativity, Humility.

Don’t you love well-crafted pieces which improve over time AND stand up to daily use?

    Beautiful fashion ideas today! I’m with you on the 1984 jeans style! I sincerely hope that you weren’t wearing the jacket when it got trampled at the concert though!!!

    Discovered your blog a little white ago and it is one of my favorites! I only follow a couple on a regular basis. I appreciate how you share your life and speak from the heart, while also sharing such lovely design and decorating ideas. Yours is the perfect combination of honesty, humor, DIY, lovely ideas, & humble sharing from the heart about life, health, and your spiritual journey. I relate to most everything you say. You have such a great way with words…thanks again for your humility, encouragement, and helpfulness! It’s a joy and treat to read!
