Fall Staples + InstaStory tips



Happy first weekend of fall. Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year because of the gorgeous autumn colors, the cold crisp air, and layering with a cozy blanket scarf and cardigan.  One of my absolute favorite thing about fall is everything having associated with pumpkins. I love everything associated with fall especially when it comes to all things fashion. 
One of my favorite outfits to wear for fall is over the knee boots, paired with a  tunic top layered with a leopard scarf and a neutral cardigan. This look is so comfy and yet so chic. I love that is versatile to wear for a weekend look or for a casual date night outfit. This olive tunic is one of my favorite tops to wear and it's super versatile to dress up or down. I also love the quality and fit. It's run big and I'm wearing an XS for reference. The best part of this tunic is it's on sale and only $27. It also comes in so many colors. The olive color is my favorite to wear especially for fall. I love pairing it with my favorite leopard print scarf and it's such as steal for under $20. 
I completed this look with a neutral cardigan which is such a necessity in San Diego. The mornings and nights can be so chilly so I always have a cardigan handy. This one is one of my favorites and comes in four gorgeous colors. Nothing says fall, like a good pair of over the knee boots. These neutral ones are definitely a must especially if you are a mom are always on your feet. I love that heel height is just right and I love that it instantly dresses up a look. These over the knee boots also come in black. They fit true to size and the best part is that I love that it stays on and doesn't roll down.  To complete and accessorize this look, I paired it with my favorite leopard print scarf which is only $19. It is currently back ordered but definitely worth the wait. This scarf is such a timeless piece and it is super soft and not too bulky which I love. It will also look amazing with dresses.
 I also added these new polarized sunglasses from Diff Eye Wear that are perfect to wear for fall. The ones I'm wearing are the Jesse James Decker-Gold frame lens and I'm obsessed with how they look on me and the quality is amazing. They are very light weight and comfortable to wear and they comes in pink, black, and blue. I totally recommend these, if you are looking for a great pair of sunglasses that are classic and can be worn for all seasons. The best part is you can get 25% of your purchase with code SUSAN25 at checkout. I also love that the company donates a pair of reading glasses with every purchase. 

I hope you had a fabulous weekend. We had such a great time today at the Legoland water park since it felt more like summer than fall. Since we have season passes, we wanted to take advantage of the last few weekends before the water park closes for the season. The boys and I had so much fun seeing all the pumpkins around the theme park. We can't wait for Halloween and when the weather cools down. I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

I also got a lot of requests on how to animate the words on my Insta Story. I use a free app called Hype Type that you can download from the app store. I love that you can pick and choose your fonts, music, & hype up your Insta Story. It is a super easy app to use. Let me know if you have any questions and I can do a more in depth post for those that are interested! Have a great week ahead! 

Thank you Diff Eye Wear for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
