Top 5 Fall Fashion Must Haves

Hey everyone! Fall is one of the best times of the year here in New England. Everything from the foliage, sweater and leggings season and pumpkin spice flavored everything! Something about the fall signifies fresh new beginnings. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing and the summer is coming to an end. I have compiled my 5 fall fashion essentials that will bring your wardrobe to the next level. Check them out!

1. Vests

Fall is the perfect in between season where it’s not warm enough to wear no coat and not cold enough to wear your winter coat. My current obsession….VESTS!!! I love a good vest. Whether you’re apple picking with a significant other, shopping with friends or even just walking around campus going from class to class, a vest is the perfect option. You can pair a vest with a basic long sleeve tee, a flannel or even a sweater. Check out some of these great vests coming Fall 2017…

2. Over Sized Sweaters

This is one of my favorite parts about a fall wardrobe. I live for over sized big comfy sweaters! They look amazing with leggings and tall boots and with jeans and ankle boots. They are perfect to wear to class or even to work if you jazz it up a little with some jewelry. Check out these ones…

5. Knee High Boots

Last but certainly not least. The knee High Boot is my fall wardrobe staple! I literally live in boots all fall long! They are comfy, easy and go with so many outfits. I adore a fall boot and it is a fall trend that you cannot go wrong with. Here are some great options…

Que Bella Professional- Moisturizing Gel Eye Masks

Welcome back my friends! Lets chat about my favorite eye masks!

I discovered these little guys a few years ago and damn have they changed my life. These are gel eye masks that you place under the eye for some extra moisture. Anytime I’m doing a face mask I use these under my eyes. Here’s how it works…

  1. Wash your face
  2. Pat Dry
  3. Peel off the plastic liner and apply to underneath your eye
  4. Leave on for 30 minutes

My favorite thing about these is the second you put them on, you feel a cooling sensation. Not only does it hydrate under your eye it also de-puffs your eye. If I have an event or had a rough night I always use these before applying my makeup. I tend to use them about twice a week or so but you can use them as much as you like.

They come 3 in a pack and can be found here at Target!

Lush- The Sacred Truth

Hi friends! Welcome back to ashley beth beauty! Let’s talk about one of my favorite things about my beauty routine….face masks!

The Sacred Truth

Lush has amazing face masks, I use a bunch of them. One of my favorite to bring back some life into my skin is the sacred truth. This is a fresh face mask that needs to be refrigerated that you can find at any lush store. The fresh papaya and wheatgrass gives dull skin a nutritious boost. When my skin is try and just blah this is one of my go to’s. Slap this bad guy one for 15 minutes and see the transformation.

The one downside to Lush products in general is the smell. I’ve found many Lush products that I love but I can’t stand the smell. This fresh face mask smells great. From the fresh smell to tacky texture you can just tell this mask does great things for your skin.

You can purchase this little guy here!

The Body Shop Body Butter

Hi friends! Hope y’all are having an excellent week! Today I’m going to talk about my favorite body butter in the whole world!

mango-softening-body-butter-1055783-200ml-1-640x640

I thought I’d introduce you guys to a necessity in my skin care life. The body shop makes the best body butter on earth! I am completely obsessed and have been using this product religiously for years.

It comes in 24 different scents and many limited edition ones too. My favorite flavor of all time is mango but all of them smell so delicious! I use the body butter year round but my favorite time to use it is during the winter. My favorite way to apply the body butter is post shower using my hands to rub it into my skin. I use the body butter on my legs, feet, and any other dry areas. I also like to apply the body butter before bed so I wake up with hydrated skin.

I do tend to keep it away from my hands because they may feel a bit greasy but this product is amazing for the rest of your body.

You can purchase the body butter in a few different sizes at any Body Shop store. Or you can purchase it Here!

2017 Top 5 Fall Fashion Trends

Welcome back everyone! Today we’re gonna talk about some upcoming fall fashion trends! As much as I love a good leisure suit or fringe head to toe I’m going to be talking about trends that everyone can bring into their own wardrobe. I’ll show you guys a look right from the runway and then I’ll show you an affordable option.

1. Red

All over the runway from tops to dresses to head to toe looks everyone was seeing red! Red is a striking color and it commands power. It is one of my favorite colors to wear and it can be paired with many other colors.

Fendi

Calvin Klein Ruched Sheath Dress

Zappos: Calvin Klein Ruched Sheath Dress $107.99

2. Florals

No more spring florals! Everywhere on the runway you are seeing new fall florals. I love when designers break the rules and mix seasons. I saw a lot of rose patterns and darker florals paired with neutrals.

Coach

Modcloth: Surplice Knit A-Line Dress $64.99

3. Plaid

Here we go again! A little bit of a 90’s throwback to the classic catholic school girl pattern. Plaid is classic, a little trendy and can be worn many different ways. Whether you choose a plaid pant, dress or good ole fashion flannel anyone can make plaid work!

Michael Kors

4. Fur

Fur is something we see in fall and winter season after season. But this year there is a major focus on Faux Shearling.

5. Trench Coat

Finally we have the classic trench coat. They never go out of style, you can wear them in multiple seasons and they can very easily take any outfit to the next level. All over the runway we saw red trench coats, shearling trench coats, broad shoulder trench coats, etc. I believe that everyone needs to own a trench coat. They are timeless and very versatile!

Moschino
