Essentials for Starting Autumn Off Right

It is officially Autumn! Bring on the apple ciders, the pumpkins patches, and cozy sweaters. In my excitement of the new season, I’ve put together a list of the essential things you need to feel as Autumnal as possible.

The first thing to get my in the spirit for fall is anything with a cinnamon, apple, pumpkin, clove scent. This year I’m obsessed with the mini size Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin ultra shea body cream from Bath and Body Works. It smells a bit sweet, with a bit of spice and I love the size.  It fits great on my night stand or in my purse on the go.

I’m also obsessed with candles (can you say basic?). I’m so lucky and am related to a Gold Canyon candles rep, and they are honestly the greatest candles of all time. They have a ton of great scents and the candles last so long for the money you spend.  Currently I’m burning the scent Mulled Cider, White Pumpkin, and Smoked Apple Cider and it’s so delightful. If you can get your hands on some Gold Canyon candles, I would definitely recommend them for your fall scents.

The last scented item that’s getting me excited for fall is a pumpkin scented hand soap, called A&S Pumpkin. It came in an adorable pumpkin shaped container and it smells SO good.  I picked this up at Marshall’s, but I’ve also seen a similar container at Home Goods.

Moving on to makeup, I love wearing a darker color on my lips in the fall. My obsession for the last few weeks has been Stepping Out from Smashbox.  It’s a darker-brown, nude color on me, with a little bit of pink undertone.  It’s perfect.  Not only does the color last for hours, it’s the perfect color to give me the for feeling of having a statement lip, but neutral enough to also be a nude lip.  Of course, I didn’t wear the color in this blog, but you can see it on my lips in this post about my favorite pair of overalls.  The color I am wearing is The Warning by Smith and Cult.

Plaid or flannel tops are my go-to when the weather turns colder.  This year, I love the olive green plaid top I wore in my Overall’s post and this classic red and white flannel.  It’s great on a more casual day with jeans and some boots. I also love it tied over top a grey sweater dress and think it would be really cute tucked into a denim skirt.  In these photos, my dress is from Forever 21 and the flannel is the brand Staccato.

What are your essentials to get you in the fall spirit?  I’d love to hear them in the comments or tag me on social media @lamelze!
