Favorite Favorites, September 2016

What what what?! Another month down, another month closer to Christmas!

Just kidding, guys (kinda)…let’s not rush away my favorite season! And on that note, here are my favorites from September!

Vanilla Almond tea from The Republic of Tea

Favorite DrinkVanilla Almond tea from The Republic of Tea. I ordered this tea at brunch one morning (since I had already had more than enough coffee) and really enjoyed it. I love having tea around during fall and winter, so I picked some up from World Market (along with some green tea KitKats) to have at home. So comforting!

ps. The patterned thing behind the tea is this scarf from Old Navy (steal of the century)!

Favorite New App: I was trying to find some new apps to download to entertain myself during the flight to Europe, and one site recommended Pocket, an app that lets you save articles, images, blog posts, etc. all in one spot…that you can access when you’re offline/not on wifi! Seeing how 22 million people have downloaded this, you’ve probably heard of it, but I’m late to the game!

So Delicious Cashew Milk frozen dessert Snickerdoodle

Favorite Treat: I don’t have milk allergies, but I saw this So Delicious Cashew Milk frozen dessert (aka ice cream) in Snickerdoodle…and had to try it out. I’m on my third container, so needless to say…it is super good. The best part? The chucks of snickerdoodle cookie dough.

Favorite Shoes: I haven’t found a pair of lace-up flats that I truly love for my feet…until I tried on this pair from Madewell. I should have bought them, but I didn’t, so now I’m having the opposite of buyer’s remorse? They’re on sale too!

j.crew fall in Amsterdam favorites

Favorite Clothing Item(s): Anything and everything from J.Crew’s trip-to-Amsterdam catalog. They took the pictures along the canals and bike lanes of Amsterdam (which if you remember from my Amsterdam post (here if you missed it) was my favorite city ever! The bikes, the boats, the people, and the stroopwafels! I know I’m currently in Europe, but I might need to make a detour back to Amsterdam soon (and you know, pick up a few of my favorite J.Crew pieces to take with me). Check out my current favorites below!

Favorite Accessory: Fall hats! Time to turn in your straw hat options and grab your felt/wool ones! I always think Target has the best and most affordable options (check them out here), so pick one up on your next visit to the world’s greatest place. 

Favorite Album: The Head and the Heart’s new album, Signs of Light On repeat for most of this month (playing even as I write this post!), even though I didn’t really like it as much as their original albums when I first started listening to it. Anyone else a fan of The Head and the Heart?

Body Mary Retinol Surge Moisturizer

Favorite Beauty Product: Body Mary Retinol Surge Moisturizer. I probably haven’t been using this long enough to call it a favorite, but I am really liking the results from this. I’m no dermatologist, but it definitely seems to be evening out my skin tone. I might order this eye gel product from the same brand next to try and combat my dark, dark circles!

Favorite Cute (basically something that I think is cute): I’d like to redo my wedding (same groom of course)…with puppies instead of bouquets! Or maybe both! What a bunch of cuties!

Favorite Outfit: Completely a tie this month between this work look (complete with horseshoe cardigan) and this casual pre-fall utility jacket/skirt combo. Both in front of my favorite place to take pictures (somehow a purple/gray wall works with nearly every outfit)!

Be sure to leave your monthly favorite favorites in the comments! I’d love to hear about them!

ps. None of this is sponsored, and all of the favorite products reviewed were purchased by me (or me and The Husband when I slip them into the grocery cart)! ;)

  • both of those September outfits were fire. i’m so glad you’re using pocket! i probably couldn’t live without it. you can keep all your things for 10 things tuesday there! that’s how i save stuff for my link love posts and for our podcast. definitely tell me more if you get that eye gel! let’s just say i’m in the market ;)

  • I love the head and the heart! my sister just got to see them live, and I’m so jealous.
