Fashion, put it all on me!

Today is the first official day of fall and with fall comes the changing leaves, the cool crisp air, the pumpkin spice latte {which I've never personally tried but I hear it's really good} and of course, the fashion. Personnally, I'm not a super trend follower; I am what you call a "comfort-over-fashion" kind-of girl. Jeans and cardigans are usually my staples and you can always see me wearing a pair of flats.

For the past 2 years, it hasn't been really cold here in France so I could pull off most of my summer looks way into the fall season. But this year, it's getting really chilly really fast and I find myself longing more and more for a lot of nude tones, romantic-edgy looks, and lots of Chanel nail polishes. I've created a few looks that I would love to have this fall season.

I was inspired by the Chanel "Musings of a Muse" nail polish and I created this look. You can't go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans and my motto is if it's tight at the bottom, make it loose at the top so hence the flowy sweater that is fall-inspired. To give me a little bit of height since I am super short, I would pair it up with these wedges with the shearling detail. The sweater, necklace, skinny jeans, ankle wedges, messenger bag and cute hat are all from H&M. With this look, I would go for a subtle make-up look. A tinted moisturizer to even out my skin, a black-lined winger eyeliner using E.L.F Waterproof Eyeliner and peachy coral lips using M.A.C Florabundance.

Business Chic

I have been longing for the longest time for this Chanel "Innatendu" nude nail polish and it inspired this romantic-edgy look that I would definitely rock at work. First there is this gorgeous nude baby doll dress from TopShop but you can't go all nude because it would be too matchy- matchy so to toughen it up a little, I added some black shoes and black leggings with studded detailing, both from Asos. The coat has subtle golden detailing that is gorgeous from H&M and the bow belt from Asos and the little flower headband from TopShop make it all bohemian-chic. And to tie the whole look together, a wide camel messenger bag from TopShop that can carry lots of stuff yet looks quite elegant. And how cute is that "Bonjour" ring from Asos? For the makeup, I would go for the smallest hint of color with Too Faced Brightnening Blush in Papa don't peach and go for nude eye with lots of black mascara only on the top lashes. My favorite mascara of the moment is YSL Luxurious Mascara in Noir Radical.

A night on the town

This look was inspired by Chanel "Black Satin" Nail polish; and for a night out the town, a really cute dress is a MUST! You could go for a little LBD but there is something about this Miss Selfridges Flapper Dress that is quite retro and effortlessly chic. Pair it with an oversize TopShop blazer. In order to add a little bit of fantasy to the look, why not go for a black feather clutch? Simple earrings and nude platform heels that make your legs look that extra mile longer is TRULY the cherry on top. For the makeup, I'd go for a smoky eye and nude lips.

Those are my favorite looks for this fall season! What are yours?
