fallin' on a budget

Happy Fall! It is officially Fall (even if it doesn’t feel like it yet). Every year around this time, I start craving all things Fall - particularly fall beauty and fashion finds. I want to share some of my top seasonal (budget) picks!

To me, fall season is flannel season. The flannels come out- as soon as the temperature begins to drop. I don't pack them up until Spring arrives. I particularly like these flannels from Walmart (men’s section). They are heavy and well-made but not bulky, come in about a thousand types of plaid and is only an $8.00 investment! I must own at least 10 of these shirts.

Cozy fall accessories are essential! Blanket scarves are (still) so popular and I know why. Throwing on one of these cozies up your outfit, adding a new dimension to your look. I now own (3) Target Dollar Spot scarves. They are great for mixing in plaid patterns at just $7.00 each. (Pro tip- my Target has restocked this item multiple times this season, just be patient)!

Fall is the season for great nail colors, I tend to gravitate towards cooler tones and more obscure shades. I love Revlon classic nail polish formula for the wear and the Sinful Colors line often comes out with super cute colors. Each of these polishes is under $4 and for someone that owns 80+ bottles, this is a real perk. (Pro Tip- I've found that investing in a quality top coat makes any polish wear like its more expensive cousins. Essie Gel Set helps even my $2 Sinful Colors manicures last a solid week).

My favorite Fall beauty necessity is fall lip colors (especially vampy shades). I really like Wet N Wild Megalast Lip Colors. These lipsticks are matte, long wearing, AND $2 each. Does it get ANY better than that? I practically live in "Cherry Bomb" from Fall- Winter. This is the perfect dark red shade that will flatter any skin tone, I swear by this color.

I know! Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte is *the iconic fall drink. The minute it drops, everyone rushes to Starbs to grab a PSL ($5.00) and Instagram their cup. I am a HUGE fan of the Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Swirl Coffee. Equally as tasty (I actually usually prefer this over a PSL), same fall/pumpkin flavor and sugar rush, less than half the price. For $2.19 I can buy a large DD Pumpkin Coffee and get the same caffeine rush minus the empty wallet.
