Black Skinny Jeans (check!)
It's always a good feeling to start off the school year with a new pair of jeans. Personally, I'd always rather have a few pairs of jeans that I LOVE and rotate between them throughout the week than have tons of jeans that I don't know how I feel about. My staples are boyfriend jeans, black skinny jeans, dark wash skinny jeans, and whatever is in style that season like embellished or flare. I like both ripped and non ripped jeans, so I try to keep a variety in my collection. I already own a pair of these jeans, but I loved them so much that I wore them almost every other day and ripped the knee wholes way too big, so I figured it was time for a new pair.
Boyfriend Jeans (check!)
You may have seen these classic Levi's being rocked by Kylie Jenner, they're her signature wedgie jeans that make her butt look so fab. My sister bought a pair of these and told me how in love with them she was, so I decided to try them out, too. I usually don't spend this much on jeans, so I was ready to try them on and return them if there was even one thing I didn't like about them, but those tags came off as soon as all of my other jeans went in the trash. I'm not kidding, when you try on a pair of jeans that make you look this good, you will never want to wear any other jeans ever again. No wonder Kylie flaunts her behind in these, they really do work magic!
A leather jacket is definitely a staple in fall fashion and this Blank NYC one is a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wish I had acted faster, because now this one is out of stock in my size, but I have my fingers crossed that I find another cute one soon, let me know if you find any!
Belt with big Buckle
Okay...maybe this isn't a staple...but, it is on my back to school wish list! I used to wear belts like this all the time, but I haven't in forever and I'm so happy to see them coming back in style! Fun belts can add such a sexy flare to a basic outfit.
These boots are currently a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, too, and soooo cute! (Hurry up, the sale is over this Friday!) Having a good pair of boots in the fall is crucial, especially if you're from the north. I wear boots or booties every single day when it gets too chilly to wear flats or sneakers and I'm dying over these because the have a heel that's not unbearable and this shade will go with everything. I look at these boots and I'm already planning out mid-semester outfits for class!
Silky Dress (check!)
Slip dresses have been EVERYwhere lately. I'm not a huge fan of the tee shirt-under-dress look yet, but I can't wait to pair this with a leather jacket and my Doc Martens. It will create such a glam, punk rock look and I can't wait!
Everyone knows that you're supposed to wash your makeup brushes on a regular basis, but everyone hates doing it. It's one of those tasks that we always forget to do or put off doing because we think about it at the wrong time. Pro tip: treat yourself to a new set of brushes at the beginning of each school year. Your face will clear up because there won't be any build up oil, and you'll feel the difference! Now I know makeup brushes are expensive, so try saving up ahead of time and keeping an eye out for sales. Also, here are a few sites where you can score some good quality, less expensive brush sets: Nanshy, Morphe, Sigma, and bh Cosmetics.
