It’s (almost) the most wonderful time of the year! I am super excited to live through my first fall. To be honest, I love and miss my beautiful island. But I must confess I am very happy to finally experience all of the seasons. In Puerto Rico we don’t ever truly experience the seasons. So, we often just lust about wearing soft beautiful sweaters but never get the chance unless we travel. Even though here in El Paso the winter is mostly cold and barely any snow, I can finally rock my most desired fall and winter fashion. Finally I can say I am ready for sweater weather, let’s get into this post!
The Perfect Sweater
As soon as we started getting cooler temperatures at night I started looking into warmer clothes. I was able to take advantage of several sales and I got a few sweaters. By far, my favorite is this cowl neck sweater from Banana Republic Factory. Not only does it come in beautiful fall colors, it is incredibly soft and comfortable. I also love the design detail and the fact that it is a cowl neck and not a turtle neck. I thought that this specific sweater is so versatile because of the craftsmanship it can serve you for so many different looks and occasions. Another great thing is the price! Since it’s from the factory store they always have good discounts and coupons available. So even if this is mid-range in price, you can get it for a <$35 like I did. (The sweater is on SALE 60% off right now! That means it’s $28!)
Not only am I loving these new purchases, last year I got my hands on several cozy layering sweaters at target that I love and am looking forward to styling again. They are incredibly affordable and comfortable. I have even put them in the wash and they have been perfect! They often go on sale like 2 for $20 and that is the moment to snatch yourself a pair. I haven’t seen them in store yet, but keep an eye for them! Loft also puts out great sweater this time of year and during their sale events you can grab a few with 40-50% off! Now that is a good deal.
Fall is the time for pumpkins. From pumpkin desert, to decor and candles and I am all for it! We got our hands on a few Bath and Body works fall candles. My favorite is the Pumpkin Patch. It is such a delicious smell, with pumpkin as a base but also some cinnamon and autumn spices, as well as molasses. What I love about it is that is not too sweet and it is a mild/moderate fragrance. As such, it is not too overpowering. It is a beautiful deep orange color so it works perfectly with our decor and fall vibes.
In addition to candles, I have been loving pumpkin decorations and foods, including my husband’s Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Roll Cake. In terms of decorations, my cousin’s wife brought us a beautiful gold pumpkin with potpourri that is just pure perfection. I love it so much that I have decided it will go in my bookshelf after the season passes! And I still have pending to make my pumpkin soup soon, and my excitement is absolutely through the roof. I think you are starting to see how excited I truly am.
The White Skinny Jean
Now onto my other favorite recent purchase, the perfect white skinny jean. To be honest, I lost count of how much time I have spent looking for a proper fitting pair of white jeans. I love AEO but they have made it impossible to find a good pair. I wanted true jeans, no jeggings, and no distressing. Clearly my expectations posed a huge challenge. Well my search is over! Maybe… For now I have found a dreamy pair of white jeans! I found them recently at the Banana Republic Factory store and I couldn’t believe my eyes. They were true jeans, with a stretch element, no rips or distressing, and they were skinny jeans! A dream come true.
I had to order online because they did not have my size in store, but I did try my size in a different color. They fit perfectly, the length is spot on (I am 5’9″ for reference) and they are just a tad bit off white which makes them very easy to pair with other items. They also work very well with boots, heels, and any kind of top that you decide. Ultimately the other amazing feature is they are high-waisted with gives them a comfortable fit while helping you, ie. me look even slimmer. Now that is a 10/10 across the board! so if you are on the market for a good pair of white denim jeans, the Sculpt Skinny jean is a great option in my opinion.
Fall is a wonderful time of year. And I am so ready to play with all the fall styles. Now that I have myself a good pair of jeans and a handful of sweater all that I am missing is a good pair (or two) of calf and knee-high boots! Let me know your favorite boots in the comments below.
Let me know what your favorite thing about fall is, and how YOU are getting ready for the upcoming seasons!
