The change of seasons not only means a change to our wardrobes but to our beauty looks as well. We’re trading in our sun-kissed bronzers for creamy body butters, moisturizing hair products, and hydrating facial masks to keep us looking fresh for fall. But that doesn’t mean we need to blow entire paycheck on beauty essentials. I’ve rounded up 12 new drugstore items to stock up on this season that won’t break the bank.

You know I’m not one to shy away from a hat OR a designated holiday – I mean, #NationalCoffeeDay anyone? So when I heard that September is National Hat Month, I knew I had to fulfill my fashion duty and share a few stylish toppers with you!
I personally love hats because they’re a quick and easy way to elevate any look, but I know some woman still have a hard time figuring out how to incorporate them into their wardrobe. In fact, T.J.Maxx and Marshalls conducted a survey to uncover which types of fall hats women think are the hardest to style and when they typically wear hats. And it comes to as no surprise that the Trapper style hat is what women have most trouble styling, while the Baseball cap is the easiest. The survey also revealed that the majority of women wear their favorite hats (beanies, baseball caps, and large brim floppy hats) to not only stay warm but also make a fashion statement. I couldn't agree more! So with that in mind, here are some effortlessly stylish ways to wear fall’s trendiest hats.

Apple picking is hands down one of my favorite fall activities. The whole family gets together and heads to a local apple orchard in search of the juiciest apples we can find. It’s great family fun and wonderful way to spend a crisp fall day. The only problem is, afterwards you end up with a bountiful harvest of fresh apples and not a clue on what to do with them. Sure, you can eat them with peanut butter, or toss them in a salad and call it a day, but who doesn’t love a warm apple treat on a perfectly autumn day - or any day for that matter? I know I do! That’s why I gathered a few favorite recipes to make your fall just a little bit sweeter.

It’s mid-September and I’m still desperately waiting on the weather to catch up to the calendar. This 80/90 degree weather has no chill. I mean, how am I supposed to be scarf-weather ready when it scorching outside? At least, the rising temps hasn’t stopped us from doing fall-like activities like going apple picking this weekend. I’ll be damned if I don’t wear boots for apple picking so I finally decided to take LB riding boots for a spin. I like that they’re taupe and extremely versatile, even though they look a little darker in the picture. To keep things weather-appropriate I paired them with a short-sleeved floral graphic tee and finished off the look with a floppy hat. Hope you lovelies have a great week!

Project Runway winner and designer extraordinaire Christian Siriano has just released his second capsule collection for Lane Bryant and it’s EVERYTHING. Sophisticated and uber feminine the fall collection comes on the heels of his highly celebrated NYFW runway show which featured 5 plus size models in the mix. Siriano says that although he never intended to make a “crazy statement” about it, he feels that there should be size diversity on runway shows and hopes that “seeing every size down the runway will be normal." I love that! If only more designers would think that way women over size 12 wouldn’t feel so discriminated in the fashion world.
Moving on to his new fall collection, it’s everything I want to be. Polished and lady-like, and ripped out of the pages of Italian Vogue! From the dramatic hats, to the collar dresses and wrap coats – I’m swooning over every piece. Just take my money now LB!
Here are my favorite pieces from the collection:

When you live in NYC or the surrounding areas, there’s never a shortage of things to do. But as a parent, our options are sometimes limited in planning kid-friendly activities in an urban setting. Especially when they get older and going to the playground or a museum just doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s up to us to find new exciting things for them to do and continue to create meaningful memories to experience with them before they grow up.
