22nd Birthday Love List

Today, I turn 22 (omg!!!) My birthday has always been one of my favorite parts of fall and this year is no exception. I’ve already had a great time celebrating by visiting my best friends up in Rhode Island and spending some time with my mom in Boston. And I’m looking forward to a birthday dinner tonight and cake with my whole family this weekend. Between all the fun and cake and festivities, there’s one of the best parts of birthdays: the gift! Here’s twenty-two things on my 22nd birthday love list!

Wade Faux Suede Jacket • I’m in love with this jacket! It’s simple but will add a pop of chic to any outfit it’s worn with. The neutral color makes it versatile and the suede is perfect for fall. Paired with a simple pink dress and white boots along with thick, tan boot socks, the perfect fall look is created. Available in five colors. $105, BB Dakota

Patent Leather Ankle Boots • Ever since my trip to New York City, I’ve been obsessed with this store. And after seeing this pair of adorable tortoiseshell print boots. These are such a cute addition to any fall outfit. Love this with a little black dress and gold accessories. $195, And Other Stories

Suede Miniskirt• I’ve got a thing for suede. It gives any outfit an extra little punch. I love this wine color for fall, mimicking the color of the changing leaves. This skirt with a chunky white turtleneck sweater would be the perfect warm fall outfit. Available in two colors. $98, Nordstrom

Old School Corduroy Pinafore Dress• Recently, I’ve been obsessed with pinafore dresses. They’re so simple on their own but can be added with just about any kind of tops so the same dress can be worn a countless number of ways. I love how they paired this with the sheer, lacy, white top but I’d also try a sweater for some texture or play around with warm colors like yellow and red. $68, Lulu’s

Melted Matte in Drop Dead Red • This is one of my favorite lipsticks. I absolutely adore the colors (all 24 of them!) because they’re so vivid and not patchy. Fall, for me, is dark lipstick season and this shade fits that perfectly. Plus it lasts all day without smudging! $21, Too Faced

Park City Pullover • This color is absolutely gorgeous and such a different color for fall. It’s bright, cozy, and fun. Paired with a pair of white jeans and tan knee-high boots, this would be the perfect outfit for a laid-back fall day. $108, Free People

Poppy Bag in Rose Gold • I fell in love with this bag almost as soon as I saw it. The Cambridge Satchel Company is one of my favorite leather brands. Everything they have is so pretty and the perfect addition to any outfit. This cute little bag caught my eye almost immediately; it’s the perfect purse for a casual day strolling with a pumpkin flavored drink. And it comes in ten colors. $235, Cambridge Satchel Company

Lucile Striped Shirt Dress •  I’m loving stripes in the fall and this cute little dress fits right in. This dress can be casual or dressy depending on how you accessorize it. But for a cute fall look, I’d pair it with a pair of tan ankle boots with thick boot socks to add some texture and interest. $169, BCBG

Jaelin Lace Top • This is another store I’ve been loving since I came back from New York City. I’ve been perusing their website, falling in love with nearly everything they post. This lace top is the perfect wardrobe basic, easily pairing with any outfit. Yeah, it’s a total splurge but I’d wear it every day since it’s just that cute. $298, Joie

Denim Overall Dress • I’m back with a pinafore dress but this time in overall form. This is another perfect piece to be layered, making it versatile for fall. I’d paid this with a red striped shirt and black booties. $56, ASOS

Elton Gold Bracelet in Irredescent Drusy • Kendra Scott has such gorgeous jewelry. Practically everything up on the website is a must-have. I love this simple band with stunning gems. With thirteen colors and a design your own option, this bracelet would be the perfect accessory for any outfit. $55-$70, Kendra Scott

Argyle Pointy Toe Booties in Dark Natural Suede • I was drawn to these boots because of the color; it such a gorgeous light brown. The color is simple and the shape is stunning. I’m loving this with a dark blue skirt and a chunky sweater combo and a tan vest perfect for fall. Available in four colors. $119, Nine West

Fuzzy Knit Dress • This dress is just too cozy. I’m looking at it online and I already want to cuddle up in it. This color is so pretty and perfect for layering. Plus this dress combines two of my favorite things: dresses and sweaters. So sweater dresses are arguably the best part of fall. $22.90, Forever 21

Modern Renaissance Palette • This makeup pallet is so stunning. With eleven vivid pigments, this is the perfect palette to get a bold fall look. The mix of golds and deep reds are perfect for the season.  $42, Anastasia Beverly Hills

Longline Surplice Top • The combination of these colors and stripes has me smitten. The loose, relaxed fit makes it perfect to be tucked into a pair of jeans and worn with over-the-knee boots for a casual fall day. $59, Urban Outfitters

Sandbar Drops • I’ve been obsessed with Bauble Bar jewelry recently. Their pieces are so fun and colorful, making it them the perfect statement jewelry. I love the tassels on these that give both bright pops of color and texture. With five different color options, these earrings would be the perfect addition to any outfit. $38, Bauble Bar

Faux Pearl Ankle Booties • The pearl shoe trend was all over the summer on nearly every pair of sandals. And now this trend is making its way into the fall by adorning the heels of boots. These are fun and chic, perfect for jumping into a leaf pile with style. Also available in a blush pink. $40, SheIn

Arianna Curved Hem Gingham Check Mini Skirt • Gingham was another trend that was so prevalent in the summer, but it’s perfect for fall too. I love this hem because it’s different but subtly so. This cute skirt would be absolutely perfect with a pair of black tights and ankle boots and a cozy sweater on top.  $14, Boohoo

Embroidered Lace Top • I used to be so obsessed with lace and now that obsession is coming back. I love how bold this top is; the red is such an amazing color for fall. I love the high neck on this that creates some interest, perfect for just about any outfit. Also available in black. $25.90, Zara

Rorschach Art Print • Rifle Paper Company is my absolute favorite place to buy notebooks because their patterns are too cute to pass up. But they have a variety of items, including prints that are perfect for decorating. I just redid my bedroom and now I’m starting to collect some art to put on the walls. I love this print because it reminds me of my psychology background in a super cute way. Their prints are available with or without five custom frame options. $40-$115, Rifle Paper Company

Kane Road Card Holder • Anything with scalloping I’ll almost instantly love and this little wallet is no exception. It’s small and perfect for traveling, fitting all the essentials in a cute, little package. I personally love the hazel but it’s also available in red and black, called red carpet. $68, Kate Spade

Druzy Teardrop Necklace • Firstly, I love the color of this stone. This blue is so gorgeous and I love it with the combination of gold. The long chain and pendant will instantly dress any outfit up. $54, Anthropologie
