FALL // BEAUTY EDIT

Back in July I highlighted some of my favorite beauty products and with the arrival of fall I decided to update you on a few of the newbies I have added to my routine.

one // For some extra under-eye love I have been using these ultra hydrating patches from Peter Thomas Roth once a week. Simple to apply and at only 10-15 minutes use they are easy to add to a morning routine here and there!

two // By Terry has become one of my all time favorite beauty brands.  The product works so well with my skin and the rose scent is heavenly.  I recently picked up the hand cream, which is perfect for this time of year when my skin really starts to dry out. The By Terry face cream and serum I mentioned in my Summer beauty edit here are still cornerstones of my daily routine!

three // I have been trying out some new hair products and one in particular I have loved is the Kerastase Spray a Porter. For days when I am looking for some flexible hold in my curls this product has been my go-to.

four // I have trusted Kerastase with my hair for years and this might be my favorite product of all time. My hair tends to take on a straw-like quality after applying the heat of a blowdryer (thanks to years of coloring) and by adding this product to my wet hair prior to applying heat I have seen a world of difference. Since I have fine hair I use the lotion but this product also comes in a cream for thick hair here!

five // In my nightly routine I have added SkinCeuticals H. A. Intensifier. The formula came highly recommended and it has not disappointed. Over the past few weeks I have noticed much smoother skin and have just started to notice in the past 2 weeks how much firmer my skin looks and feels!

six // About once a week I use Kerastase’s Masque Magistral and I was delighted to find it came in a travel size.  I have been taking this deep conditioner on the road with me to keep up my hair routine even when I am on the go!

NEW BRAND LAUNCHES // FALL DENIM

Three of my go-to brands have recently launched denim! As new fall denim is on everybody’s shopping lists, I wanted to showcase these new offerings and highlight a few of my favorites.

EVERLANE:  one  //  two  //  three  //  four

EVERLANE launched their new denim collection last month to rave reviews – and an unbelievably long wait list! The company opted to focus on the classic versus trend or fashion and is offering three fits, a high-rise skinny, mid-rise skinny, and modern boyfriend. To expand the collection further, each skinny fit is available in a regular length and an ankle length. In keeping with the brands ethos around radical transparency, all of the denim is priced at just $68! I own the high-rise-skinny in black and have found them to be perfect for this transitional weather. I’ve been wearing them with loafers and oversized sweaters, but just as easily could opt for ankle booties and outerwear instead. I was first introduced to Everlane living in San Francisco and the brand has remained a go-to for classic wardrobe staples. You can see a few past posts featuring the brand here and here.

SÉZANE:  one  //  two  //  three  //  four

SÉZANE denim will be part of La Liste, the brand’s permanent line. So, unlike most of the highly coveted collection, you won’t have to worry about these items selling out as they will be continually re-released! The brand offers three classic fits, the ‘Perfect Slim’, the curve accentuating ‘Brut Sexy’, and the higher-waisted, retro ‘Mom Jean’. The slim is offered in a variety of washes and seasonal colors, while the brut and mom styles are only available in more classic blue shades. On top of those, Sézane also offers three more fashion forward silhouettes, ‘The New Parisien’, which is a button front, high-waisted sailor style, ‘The Feminine Boyfriend’, and ‘The Flare’. You can see me wearing ‘The New Parisien’ in dark blue here. I love the nautical vibes of this style, it’s so easy back to a striped tee and flats, or more dressed up with a bow blouse and heels!

VERONICA BEARD:  one  //  two  //  three  //  four

VERONICA BEARD introduced their denim line a few months ago, focusing on the skinny jean while also referencing some of the most memorable fashion moments from the 70’s and 80’s. The results have all the right details including slight flares, exposed buttons, raw hemlines, and tuxedo stripes. The brand has landed on two rise options, a 10″ and an 8.5″, to round our their fits, with various leg shapes offered in each. I have the Carolyn 10″ Baby Boot with the Red/Navy tuxedo stripe. I love the exposed button fly and cropped, tomgirl silhouette. I can see myself wearing this style back to some of this fall’s more trendy items like a band jacket, 70’s inspired turtleneck, or a chunky block heel.

PERFECTLY PINK FOR FALL //

I have found myself wearing more and more pink into the fall season. In years past, at this first sign of cooler weather, I was so excited to transition to a darker palette. But not this year. Instead, I am finding creative ways to wear some of my favorite warmer weather tones right into the cooler season, and pink seems to be leading the pack. Below are a few recent fall pink looks, some styling notes, and eight of my favorite pink pieces currently in the market!

Atlantic-Pacific // Tickled Pink

When in doubt, just add pink accessories! Pink bags, shoes, or an oversized scarf, are all easy ways to stay playful and feminine into the fall season. On a recent, cooler afternoon in San Francisco, I wore a casual grey cashmere sweater with cut-off skinny ankle jeans. Normally, this would be a somewhat unforgettable outfit, but the pink accessories give it a fun pop, and keep it casual. Perfect for a day walking and exploring my old city. Check out the full post here.

Atlantic Pacific // FEED The Blair Bag

If you are feeling a bit more bold, go all pink, and own it! I loved the monochromatic look above for a few reasons. One, the pink shades are a bit more muted and play off of each other, making the outfit less loud and more appropriate for nearly any occasion. Second, the different textures, from a bushier wool blend, to a feminine lace, to the satin bow detailing, provide interest to the look. Third, the pink bag is solid and in the lightest shade, contrasting nicely with fabrics in the outfit, and making it stand out! In this case, that was intentional as I was trying to support my FEED partnership! You can see the full post here!

Atlantic Pacific // Velvet bow shoes, olive pants and blush coat

Match it back to your favorite fall shade. Usually, pinks are more at home paired back to whites, lighter shades, or pretty pastels, however, this fall I am intentionally wearing them back to fall colors. In this case above, I chose olive wide leg trousers and built the look by adding pinks with feminine touches and unique detailing. If olive is not your color of choice, this look can work just as well with other fall jewel tones like a cobalt blue or beautiful amber yellow. The keys to pulling off this pairing are to keep the pinks more muted, and to not be afraid to stand out with the details, which can act as the counterpoint to the deeper fall color, and keep the outfit interesting! You can check out the above look here, and also see another similar example where I used an emerald tight back to pinks here!
