The Vancouver fall season seemed to appear just overnight and all of my fall clothing has been pulled out of hiding. Not to get too excited, but Starbucks introduced their Pumpkin Spice Lattes in AUGUST (#basic). I know that’s pretty soon but it came at the right moment for our city’s cold season. There are some items I can’t go without during the fall and I’m listing a few of them for you today. We’re starting with the basics! These are wardrobe items you’ll have on repeat and beauty items you’ll keep as staples in your bag. Click on the item title if you’re interested in purchasing!
J.Crew Tippi Sweater Grey – Classic and simple sweaters are my jam. The Tippi sweaters (all neck styles) from J. Crew are the way to go for style and the quality of the fabric will last you for years. I would recommend paying the price point and purchasing two colours that you can keep on rotation.
Romwe Black Tote Bag – I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for the perfect tote bag. Especially now that I take my life to the office everyday, it’s convenient to have a bag that can fit it all and it doesn’t hurt to have it be stylish too!
RayBan Original Aviator Sunglasses – Because, obviously. I feel like most people own a pair of RayBans in their wardrobe. These Aviator styles are classic and will go with just about any outfit for any occasion.
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm – This hand balm is a must have! It doesn’t leave an oily finish and keeps your hands soothed and moisturized for hours. My hands get pretty dry during the cold season and if I’m applying this multiple times in a day, I would like it to have a soft finish. Plus, it smells delightful!
Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick – I posted about these lipsticks HERE a few weeks back and have narrowed down my favourite colours. I can apply it once in the morning before work and when I finish at 5pm, the colour is still there. It’s a little dull after eating and drinking all day but I’m not too worried about the colour being so bold all day long.
Acne Jensen Leather Ankle Boots – Last season, I hummed and hawed about a pair of Topshop Chelsea Boots and I’m thrilled that I purchased them as I wore them almost everyday last fall and winter. They’re the quintessential casual boot that elevates your outfit.
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte – Self explanatory. They’re freakin’ delicious!
