Seasonal Inspiration: Fall!

bbeff0b13c258aed2acae3897d81cca4

Anyone else love fall, more than any other season? Every year the second the air starts to turn slightly chilly and the leaves change color, I am ready for the fall! I look forward to big comfy sweaters, hot apple cider, and deep colored lipsticks. As well fall is my favorite season to dress for, as well as apply my makeup. For me summer is way too hot, and I just wanna be in shorts and a tank top with my hair back in a top knot. WInter here in New England calls for a puffer jacket and boots..All in all the fall season is just right and seems to be the perfect season for layering, wearing romantic colors, and being comfortable.

To kick off the new season one of my favorite things to do is troll around Pinterest and see what the latest seasonal makeup looks and fashion styles are. ere is some things I found I wanted to share in hopes it will ignite you fall mood as well! Plus a couple extra fun things I found…I swear I could be on Pinterest for hours at a time it!

Here are some rich colors I found, these girls have gorgeous hair! I love warm drown mixed in with blonde layers as well as bright red stripes on brunettes.

Some pretty fall outfit ideas:

I love the mixture of this deep wine colored shirt, coffee scarf, and tan belt, these colors layered together looks just like the season and color changes of the trees. This kind of look would be perfect with a deep plum colored lipstick for the more daring makeup appliers.

This is a nice and easy look to put together. Especially when it’s chilly outside it is so comfy to just through on layers and leggings with boots. This is a cute look but will also keep the mood casual for school or just going out. The wool socks peeking out is a cute touch, as well as an interesting pendant to dress up the whole look.

Black leather looking boots and leggings are so sexy and flattering! For those darker nights or going out to dinner this vampy look is just plain gorgeous with a bit of edge. Her hair let loose and wavy with the black sun glasses is very classy looking, I just love this whole ensemble.

I love these boots! They are from UGG of course, but they have a nice different quality about them. They look like the perfect mixture between moccasins and regular UGG boots without the classic fur. Included below is a link incase you want to check them out further!

These laced up wedge boots are adorable. They give off the same appeal as regular leather looking boots sept the wedge gives you an added couple of inches that will elongate your legs! This style of boot also makes your feet tend to look smaller, as well wedges are a lot easier to walk in as appose to heels!

Some Funky Fall Nail Polishes:

Deep plum colors are a fall must have as far as nail polishes go! The cool tone and dark finish is great for a fall color choice.

This matte royal blue polish is so regal and looks great with pale skin. I know personally I have very pale skin and burgundy fall colors don’t look very good with my skin tone; a color like this is a perfect option to bring out cool undertones in your skin!

Gorgeous Eye looks To Inspire you:

Sparkling coffee eyeshadow that will compliment any eye color. This eye is very wearable for a daytime look or a fancier outing you have to attend.

This look is beautiful! I love how how the light reflects off of this deep chocolate colored eyelid with slight twinges of gold and amber. This is a classic fall evening look.

Just for fun I thought I would share some fun fall goodies!

This Tinker Bell pumpkin is sooooo cute! I could never pull off something this great but I would like to try perhaps this Halloween.

Black toffee apples! These look pretty cool, very Maleficent inspired. These would be great for a different treat to bring to a party “Poisoned Toffee Apples”

DIY Cute Bow Back Shirt! So Easy! No SEW!

Hey there girlies! Here is something new to my channel! Do it yourself stuff! Although this is my first one and I will include instructions and pictures of what the results came out looking like, but my next one I will add some picture by picture tutorials for my next DIY posts! So please bare with me 🙂 In this DIY idea post I will show you how my t-shirt came out, the front and the back. Plus the video that inspired me to make it, so keep reading! :p

I got inspired to create this look because I had so many large t-shirts lying around, and I love the print on them, but I wouldn’t wear a plain large t-shirt, it is just not my style :p I definitly like flashier clothes, and have been really into shirts with cut outs and that have been hand altered. I love fringing, bow back, bowl neck, and more styles you can do with scissors! So I set a side all my cool looking t-shirts that were way too big for me and decided to look up some Youtube videos on DIY t-shirt cutting. There are so many out there, so I would suggest looking through them because there really is a million ways to cut a t-shirt lol :p

I used my Thor shirt….Of course! I love Thor, and this shirt, but the neckline was too high for me, and the bottom was baggy so I never wore it :/ SO, I grabbed it, some white chalk or white eyeliner pencil (both wash out in the washing machine) some scissors, and your body! 😉 haha. The best way to figure out how you want your t-shirt to look is by wearing it first! This way you know exactly how it will look when it is all cut up and finished.

For this look in particular, the bows, I used the video below by Salina Siu. Although the girl talks for a bit in the beginning, it is a really easy and good tutorial to follow! This is a no sew video, which is nice if it is a last minute creation before you run out the door for the night. But if you want something more secure, that will last being washed, without being worried about things coming undone, just grab some black thread and a needle. Hand sewing is so easy, even if you have never done it before! Just putting a couple stitches here and there on this shirt will be quick and ensure that the ties are secure, but without sewing it will work just as fine 🙂

I added my own variations to my shirt after the video! I wanted to dress mine up a bit more, so I used four bows in the back because my shirt is larger. I also, wanted to make it into a smaller strapped tank top so I took some left over cloth from the sleeves and tied it around the top of the straps and pinched it together with the inner neck hole and held it together on each side with strips of the left over fabric like you do on the bows on the back. I also used some extra strips of cloth from the other sleeve and cut a hole in the bottom of the t-shirt on each side of my waist and tied a little bow. This brought in the shirt two inches so it was more form fitting on the bottom and less baggy 🙂 and made it look a bit cuter! 🙂


I hope you guys enjoyed this post and it was helpful for you! Let me guys know if you like DIY posts and I will do more of them, but with picture by picture directions! :0 Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips

image

I was inspired by ohloveleslie’s blog  and decided to go out and buy some Sally Hansen nail stickers, in “hot wired” from CVS for $7.

image

The Kit comes with two packs of nail strips (with some extra in case of mistakes), a wooden poker, and a nail file.

image

Although it took me bit to adjust  to using these, once I figured them out I can’t get enough of them! These guys are great if you want amazing looking nails, that last up to two weeks. I Love having these on my nails when I am trying to grow them out because I am less tempted to pick at them because there are so pretty :p

I first off clean my nails completely, clip my cuticles, and file my nails. Then I go through the strips provided and find which ones best fit my nail shape. Then I’ll take the sticker, rip off the backing, and place it in the top middle of my nail. Then I will smooth the sides to each corner of my nail, and then down to the edge of my nail. Then you can use the nail file and file the excess sticker away. To ensure extra hold, I press down the whole sticker on each nail for a couple of seconds. Then, as an optional step, I apply a clear coat on top for extra shine and to prevent chipping.

I am super happy with the results, very neon and fun. If you guys would like me to try out more nail styling products like the sugar finish polish or any of the newer ones let me know and I’ll do a review. If you guys like the nail look please like and follow me for more lovin’ 🙂 thanks for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels
