OK, this photo is a little overexposed. I’m not sure what is going on with my DSLR, but it’s doing weird things with light lately. I am pretty sure it is time to replace it; after all, it’s a 2013 model. I’m just torn as to whether or not I should invest in a new DSLR, or go mirrorless; if you are familiar with cameras, I would love a suggestion and/or tip in the comments below!

Now, onto fall beauty! I have kept my skin care routine, and makeup routine the same for the fall 2019 season, as it was in the summer 2019 season. I am adding this fabulous curling iron in an attempt to make my hair look better; haha. It’s a really cool curling iron which creates the coolest looking beach waves. Even a hair novice like me can do it! When I get my first outfit photos up with beach waves, I will point it out so you can see the difference! I am still working on using the right hair product to make the waves stay. They seem to fall out after fifteen minutes without product. I guess I cannot get away without using product in my hair! Boo!

Can I just tell you how addicted to this body butter I have become?! Colleen Rothschild is one of my favorite skin care brands. This body butter does not disappoint. It adds the perfect amount of moisture to skin without leaving a film. Love that! The honey vanilla scent is warm, without being too sweet; perfect for the fall season! I might go through this jar unusually fast! Highly recommend!!

OK, my daughter filled me in on Glossier. It’s a really popular brand with the teens. She’s into makeup, so she loves a ton of products by Glossier. I needed to see what the teens were buzzing about, so I indulged in my own piece of Glossier by purchasing this lipstick. It’s a sheer lipstick which leaves just the right amount of color on my lips. My only complaint is that it is not smooth going on. In fact, it’s a little difficult to apply. Once it’s on, it looks and feel great; it’s the application process which is a little odd. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Now, you might be wondering why I placed two pairs of earrings in this photo. haha, Well, I couldn’t make a box shaped photo with just three beauty products, so I threw in some cute earrings Baublebar sent me for the fall season. These are actually from their Target line, and super affordable. I can’t wait to wear them this season, so watch for some upcoming outfits paired with these baubles!

That’s what’s new in my fall beauty bag! I know it isn’t much, but I am pretty happy with my current routine so I didn’t change it up for fall. What are you using that’s new for fall?

Perfect poncho for a Bay Area winter

how dress in bay area winter jw anderson bag combat bootsbay area street style combat boot trend winter 2017poncho bay area winter

wearing: bold rose gold-tone circle earrings / Bobbi Brown lipstick “Lilac” / pale pink long sleeve tee (comes in several colors-so comfy!) / black knit poncho (also comes in grey) / bold rose gold cuff (on major sale!) / red JW Anderson bag / jeans (on major sale!) / Dior holiday nail polish / charcoal suede combat boots (so comfy!)

Despite the fact that temperatures have fallen to the forties at night, the daytime highs can hover anywhere between fifty, and seventy degrees, during the Bay Area winters. A winter poncho is a Bay Area girl’s best friend when temperatures fluctuate like this during the day. I love that I found one for this winter season!

This poncho is great for daytime temperatures. In the early morning, or at night, I can add a scarf or blanket scarf to make it more cozy. This poncho is my current go-to, cold casual day, outfit “enhancer!” haha, I am going to call it an “Outfit Enhancer” because I believe a poncho can elevate an everyday tee shirt and jeans look to something on-trend.

Yes. . .it is entirely possible “Outfit Enhancer” was inspired by Spongebob’s “Sentence Enhancer” episode. haha I watch too much TV with my kids!

Speaking of TV, what shows have you been into lately? I just watched WAGS LA on demand last week, and now I am hooked! I got through the first two seasons, now I need to catch up on the current season. I am also hooked on all the Real Housewives shows, and Southern Charm. Do you have any shows you have been hooked on lately?

But I digress. . .what types of “Outfit Enhancers” do you like to use to amp up your everyday, casual looks?

Casual fall blues

san jose style blogger san francisco fashion bloggerchloe nile mediu black handbagsan jose fashion blogger

wearing: blue dangle earrings c/o SugarFix by BaubleBar / Chanel lipstick / blue ruffle sleeve top (last seen here) / vintage Prada belt (also love this one) / boyfriend jeans (sold out, similar pair here) / Chloe bag / JINsoon fall nail polish / silver statement ring / black leather and rose gold watch / velvet booties (so comfy!)

We finally got some fall weather! This means I can wear jeans without melting into the floor! I originally bought this top, and these velvet booties, to wear at fashion week earlier in the month. The top was super comfortable, and turned out to be great for traveling. It does not wrinkle at all! I wore it tucked into my skirt in New York, and it was also packed into my carry-on suitcase. Nothing made it wrinkle. When I pulled it out of my suitcase to unpack once I got home from the Big Apple, it looked like it had just been pressed. Perfection!

This top had turned out to be really comfortable. Since it doesn’t wrinkle, I can tuck in it, then untuck it, and not have to worry about how it will look. The fabric is comfortable, it is machine washable, and looks cute with a skirt or with jeans. Love that! It is definitely my favorite top of the season!

These booties are super comfortable too. I wore them in New York for fashion week and they were really easy to stand and walk in. They are proving to be practical, and easy to wear here at home too. Since they are navy, they give my whole look a tonal blue look. I love shades of blue!

We need to talk about these earrings for just one minute. They are extremely lightweight, and so much fun! BaubleBar has created a special collection, at amazing prices, for Target this season. This collection is SugarFix by BaubleBar. it is filled with so many fun jewelry pieces to spice up any wardrobe. Every time I wear these earrings people compliment them. They are so much fun! If you are looking for some fabulous baubles at fabulous prices, check out SugarFix by BaubleBar! You can find the collection online here.

Which colors are you drawn to this season?
