Have you been longing for a new IT bag from Chloe? I know I have! It has been a few years since I have seen a new handbag style from Chloe that caught my attention. Perhaps it has to do with what I need ...
I wasn’t very nice to my skin over the summer. I was out in the sun a lot, and my skin really took a beating. Plus, when I was traveling, I didn’t stick to my skin care routine; which caused chaos on my skin. It’s time to repair, reset, and revitalize my skin for the fall season.
As you know, I am a huge fan of Estee Lauder. Her skin care is out of this world. For my nighttime skin care routine, I am using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair in order to repair the damage I have done to my skin. The Estee Lauder Intense Reset Concentrate is perfect for resetting my skin to where it should be. Lastly, this night cream is a-ma-zing! In order to revitalize my skin, I am using Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + Night cream. It is fabulous! It really leaves my skin moisturized and feeling good! Love!
My daytime skin care routine is still the same-for now. I will keep you posted on how I update that as the weather starts to change. As for nighttime, I am already doing my fall routine because my skin needs it now! If you are looking to repair, reset, and revitalize your skin, definitely check out Estee Lauder’s Night Repair system. It is pure perfection.

Our last day in Ventura was foggy, and very fall-like. I enjoyed it while I could since the next day it was 100 degrees when we got home! It was fun to play fall for a few days at least <sigh>. haha
My mom had business in Ventura, so I went to her meetings with her while my husband took our kids back to the beach. In the evening, we all met back up and headed over to The Village, which is a shopping area along the harbor.
The kids explored the arcade, but didn’t end up playing anything. I think I have spoiled them with the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Ooops! We ended up just taking a walk, exploring a sock store, and then enjoying dinner at The Greek Mediterranean Steak & Seafood restaurant. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a beautiful view of the harbor.
After dinner, we went to Coastal Cone for some ice cream. This wasn’t our first time there, we had enjoyed dessert there the night before too. They have the most instagrammable ice cream! My daughter loves to post photos of food on her Instagram, so as you can see, she was busy taking photos for her page.
In addition to the “Sea-Cret” menu, they have a large scooped ice cream menu, sundaes, and shakes. It’s really a fun ice cream shop! If you are ever in the Ventura area, be sure to drop in!
That was our quick road trip! It was fun to get out of the heat for a few days, and squeeze in a vacation before school started. Aside from a business trip to fashion week in September, it will be several months before we can get away again! It’s killing me, I have serious wanderlust right now! haha, let’s see when I can escape next. . .
The fall 2019 season is starting to appear in stores, and we are catching a glimpse of what made it from the runways to the streets. The fall 2019 runways included menswear, vintage vibes, texture, and darker colors than previous fall seasons. We saw influences from the 1940’s through to the 1990’s. The looks included athleisure, power suits, slim silhouettes, and a return to ladylike, feminine dressing. Stores shelves are almost in the same place for fall.
Store buyers went big on atheisure, power suits, blazers, anything plaid, animal prints and vintage inspiration from the 1980’s and 90’s; with a few 60’s hemlines thrown in, just to mix things up. Here is what to expect on the streets for fall.
Look for power suits, blazers instead of jackets, plaid on anything and everything, trouser pants on casual days, and clunky, chunky shoes. Think 1980’s Wall Street power suit. That’s your new look for the office, and anytime you want to exert your power.
Get ready to roar!
Any type of animal print is hot for fall. Look for animal prints on all of your clothing, and grab yourself a pair of snakeskin boots. They are the IT boot style for fall! Meow! Roar! And any other noises animals make. Haha Grrrrr!
Where’s the big hair?
Everything 80’s is hot for fall, except the big mall hair. Leave your Aquanet under the sink this season, you can rock those exaggerated shoulders and sleeves without it. Look for giant puff sleeves, big shoulders, inverted triangle silhouettes, and neon hues mixed among the racks of dark, autumn hues. Think neon yellow, two different earrings, scrunchies, big bows, secretary blouses, and pencil skirts.
Smells like the 90’s
Who said the 90’s were dead? Obviously they live under a rock. Doc’s are back, so whip out your Mod look from the early 90’s and rocks those combat boots with your head held high. Also, be sure to pair them with a tight, black bodysuit underneath paprbag waist pants. Your rave is ready for you; and so is The Cure.
The great hemline debate
I have missed the hemline debate. It seems as if hemlines haven’t mattered in more than a decade. I remember when your hemline showed the world what you knew about fashion. No-one would dare wear last year’s hemline! The horror! Well guess what peeps! Hemline significance is back. For fall 2019 look for 60’s a-line mini-skirts, 90’s rocker postage stamp mini skirts, knee length pencil skirts, and pleated t-length skirts. Maxi’s are always accepted. Those are the hemline rules! Will you follow them?
Fall 2019’s color palette
Colors speak for themselves right? I don’t need to try and be witty? 😉
Athleisure / street style
Athleisure is the trend that keeps on giving. Look for adidas logos everywhere, and make sure you have a pair of Superstar’s in your wardrobe. Funky sweatpants, exaggerated sole sneakers, and workout clothing you wouldn’t wear to the gym because it’s too nice. That’s what falls athleisure trend is all about. Get comfy-just make sure you don’t actually sweat in that look, um-kay?
Sparkle and shine, it’s Studio 54 time! Again.
Yes, sparkles are back, and they were not gone long. Chances are you have sparkling fabrics and sequins hanging in your closet. Grab those sparkles and pair them with jeans, wide-leg trousers and pencil skirts. Shine like the star you are!
Shrink to fit handbags
Ditch the oversize bag, this season is all about medium and small, not mini or nano, top handle satchels. One top handle please. Look for snakeskin, metallic, and smooth, structured leathers. Logos are over; so store or consign your Louis. A logo on the clasp of a bag doesn’t count. Those are always there, they are not a trend. Your handbag should whisper; if it flashes, it’s so two years ago.
Also, dressy bags should sparkle-not whisper, (confused yet?), and quilted bags are gaining momentum and could explode in 2020.
More trends to watch:
wide leg pants on the Noon by Noor fall 2019 NYFW runway
Pants this season are slim and cropped, paperbag waisted, or wide legged. Nothing else. That’s all.
Ruffles have rrrrrrrrridges! It’s “Little House on the Prairie” time people! Make sure you have too many ruffles on your blouse or dress, that way no-one can count them. Ruffle up!
Mock turtlenecks. No-one said you had to rock every trend. Um. . .yeah. . .
Denim trends follow pant trends. Look for wide legs, slim and cropped, dramatic side slits, and also, bootcut is back.
Your shoes should be metallic, snakeskin, a pair of Doc’s, or funky street sneakers. Also look for combat boots, lug soles, almost-platform soles, and any kind of tread. No-one has any excuse to slip on ice this year!
Did you lose an earring? It’s OK, wearing two matching earrings is so last year. Rock those mis-matched earrings like it’s 1986. Also, pearls are hot. That’s all.
Well, that’s the summary of the fall 2019 fashion trends which made it from the runways to the streets. As the fall season progresses, I will dig deep into trends which really work well on the street, and that I approve of. You won’t catch me in a mock turtleneck. Ew.
