Monthly Musings – 9/30/21

Happy Thursday! I cannot believe it is already the last day of September! This month absolutely flew by! I’m linking up with Holly and Patty to answer some fun questions just like I do on the last Thursday of every month.

Today we are talking about all things fall fashion. This is a tough one for me because I am a summer forever kind of girl. I wear my summer clothes as long as possible. So I’m going to pretend it is mid-November when I answer these even though I’m still rocking my sundresses and flip flops.

1. Favorite Fall Fashion Pieces?

I think cardigans are my favorite! I also like it when the weather is just cool enough to wear jeans and a long sleeve t with flip flops.

2. Favorite Colors to Wear in the Fall?

I love navy the fall. I like dark green and wine with the navy, too. I tend to wear camel and oranges in the fall, too.

3. Boots or Booties?

I love my black Toms suede booties from a few years ago. I am kicking myself that I didn’t buy them in gray and navy. I also have two pairs of high boots – one brown and one black. I like them, but don’t wear them as much as I thought I would. I am really more of a flats girl. I love my flats with ankle length trousers.

4. Are You a Scarf Person? Share a photo of your favorite scarf.

I have a few scarves but I am not really a scarf person.

5. Favorite Fall Handbag? Do you switch up your bags for the seasons?

I love this bag from Spartina. I got it a few years ago but it screams fall to me.

I do tend to change my bags for the season. I got this bag last fall and I love it because it is a good “any season” bag.

6. Trend You Are Most Interested in Trying This Season?

Sadly, I have no idea. I tend to wear more classic clothes than trends and I’m not even sure what’s coming.

7. Long Cardigan or Boyfriend Cardigan?

Yes!! Give me all the cardigans! I am a librarian so cardigans are in my DNA.

8. Are You a Plaid Person?

You bet I am! I love plaid!

9. Vest of Puffer Coat?

Both! I hate being cold! I’ve been known to bring a vest to work and wear a puffer coat. I love my Lands end puffer coat because it is the warmest! I also got this one because I loved the red!

10. Do You Change Up Your Make-Up for Fall?

I don’t really change it at all. I wear very little makeup – a little powder, gold eyeliner and eye shadow with some mascara. The only think I change is my lip color. Sometimes I wear a darker color if I’m not wearing a mask.

This eyeshadow is my new favorite. I love how smooth and creamy it is on my eyelids.

That was so fun! Thanks for hosting Holly and Patty! I’ll be back tomorrow with my favorites from the week. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    I love cardigans too and tend to change out my bags for the season as well. I love your “any season “ tote. I have a similar one in gray…and it’s usually my winter bag 🙂

    Yes! I love wearing my flip flops with jeans and long sleeves too. My family and friends laugh at me for wearing my flop flops so long into the fall. I’ve been slowly adding more cardigans into my wardrobe.
