Obsessed: Falling For Fall...Maybe

Hey Everyone! Today's post comes to you from my Obsessed series, where I list a bunch of things I'm obsessing over at the moment!  This post's theme is all about Fall!  So here are 5 things I'm in love with and one, not so much.

Tie Dye

I've always loved me some tie dye.  Like all day 'erry day.  But I've always been a little scared to bring it into the fall, since most tie dye is made of crazy bright colors.  Finally, I've found a way to incorporate it into my fall wardrobe!  There are tons of cool tie dyes in dark color combos like black and gray, browns, oranges, reds, and dark blues!  The key is taking typical fall colors and picking your tie dye to match! Love it!

Cynthia Rowley

I love this woman.  She totally gets me.  And every time I'm at Marshall's or TJMaxx and I run across the store to see a super cute dress, it's usually Cynthia Rowley.  I have several pieces by her, and I plan to buy even more.  Her dresses are cute colors and classic silhouettes, but still have that "chill girl" vibe.  Plus she uses tie dye! ;)

Deluxe Sample Size

The three magic words when it comes to makeup? Deluxe Sample Size.  I love these samples!  I'm the kind of girl who'd rather try a bunch of things, than spend the same amount on one thing.  Lip gloss for example: I'd rather have 3, .10 oz lippies than one .18 oz one.  So I buy sample sizes!  Plus, you can get the same item for like a third of the price.  It's great if your bad at commitment to makeup haha and also if you just want to try things out!  Who wants to spend $20 on a lip gloss and then hate it? No one.  I actually just got Sephora's Give Me Some Lip limited edition lip sample set and I love it!  I got 5 different products for the price of about one full sized one!  And one of them actually is full size!  Can't beat that; I'm obsessed.  Oh and did I mention their perfect for travel?!

So I know headwraps aren't exactly "new" but they are to me!  I've just discovered them recently and I really love them!  I bought a knitted gray one and I really want them in every color!  Super cute for bad hair days, or if you just want that bohemian style!

Printed Leggings

Printed leggings have become my go to wardrobe staple.  I've always loved wearing leggings because they are super comfortable and when you have them in basic colors they go with everything!  Recently, I started wearing printed leggings on a regular basis and here's what I love about them.  One, they are super comfy.  Two, they come in all different kinds of prints and yes, including tie dye!  Three, you can get them for great prices at places like Ross and Marshall's!  Four, you have endless options!  Wear them with a shirt and a vest, or with a cute basic dress!  Hurray for fashion and comfort!

What I'm NOT Obsessed With

Everything Pumpkin.  I'm sorry.  Sue me; I don't like the taste of pumpkin.  And believe me, I've tried.  A lot.  It's actually a funny story.  Since I was a kid I always loved the smell of pumpkin pie.  Every Thanksgiving I would take in the glorious scent of dessert.  Then I would grab a slice of pumpkin pie, anxiously awaiting the equally wonderful taste.  And then I was sorely disappointed.  I just don't like pumpkin.  All fall I will enjoy the pumpkin scented candles, while steering clear of the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and other pumpkin flavored things. End rant.

XO, Briana

  1. Great blog, Briana. I like tie-dye too but not the tie-dye prints that are generally associated with the 50s and 60s. I love the modern tie-dye prints. I actually blogged about tie-dye prints and in doing research for the post was quite surprised that so many designers have found an effective and visually stunning way to utilize tie-dye prints. I really enjoyed reading this post.
