kiss goodbye summer.


I have been avoiding the end of summer as much as possible. Despite the fact that it is nearly October (how did that happen??), I am still struggling with accepting the changing season. As a way to get myself to accept that it is fall, this post is all about fall inspirations.

There are a lot of big things coming up for me in October. I am traveling, have exciting plans made with good friends, my birthday is at the end of the month, and then of course there is Halloween! I am optimistic.

One positive about the new season, is being able to play with different makeup. I recently picked up the "Knock On Wood" trio by Wet n' Wild. I don't typically buy a lot of Wet n' Wild, but I fell in love with the colours. I especially love the lid colour, it is almost cranberry. What do you think?


I have also been very inspired by this picture. It sums up fall makeup perfectly.


Other fall inspirations? Coats! I love the range of colours and the trench-inspired look.



I am currently having a love affair with knitwear, but I am still looking for the perfect pieces....any suggestions?



As for dresses, these two have been inspiring me a lot lately. I love the bold colour of the first dress, but the second outfit is my personal favourite - classic and sophisticated.



Lastly, these are the fall accessories I am craving - a colourful boot, a pretty pair of gloves, and the perfect knit hat.




So there you have it! These are the things I am loving at the moment. Hopefully these fall inspirations will motivate me to let go of the summer!

Also, to anyone who has given me a blog award in the last little while, thank you so very much! It means the world to me.

What fall trends are you loving?
