What I’ve Been Loving Lately

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, I want to share the things I’ve been loving lately and why. Perhaps you’ll find some new favorites here or at least something new to try out!

Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Color: All Things Purple

Purple is really having a moment this fall! And not the dark, reddish shade of purple that is traditionally associated with fall. We’re talking lilac purple. That’s so strange to me, but I’m not mad about it. I love me some purple, so I’m all in on this trend!

Here are some of my lilac favorites…

Nail Polish

Eyeshadow

Highlighter

Books: Girl Wash Your Face

Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis is the dose of motivation we all need. Even the most motivated of us need some inspiration from time to time. This book is it! Each chapter stands on its own. So you can skip the ones that don’t apply to you or read them in the order that makes the best sense for you. This is one of those books you can read over and over and get something different out of it each time. I’ll have this book on repeat for a long time. Pick it up today!

Find it on Amazon here.

Beverage: Flavored Coffee

I’ve always been a French Roast kind of girl. I never stray much from that…until recently. The other day I picked up a few flavored coffee blends at the store, specifically French Vanilla and Chocolate Caramel Brownie. The Chocolate Caramel Brownie was a stretch, but I can’t resist caramel-flavored things. Much to my surprise, they were actually pretty good. I’ll be trying more flavors this fall. I might even try one of those famous PSLs (Pumpkin Spice Latte). When in Rome, right?

You can find this brand at many retailers including Target.

Activities: Being Outside

Fall is in full force here in Iowa. The weather has been BEAUTIFUL! I’m soaking up all the fall feels by spending as much time outside as possible. From walks to hikes to hanging out on the deck, it’s been all outside all time. Oh did I mention the windows are open too? Let that fall air inside!

Here are a few of my fall faves…

App: Puzzle Page

I’ve always enjoyed puzzle books. Now, I’ve found the joy of puzzle books in an app! It’s called Puzzle Page and is available on Android devices (not sure about IOS). It’s a free-to-play app with optional pay-for-play. The free content is plenty to keep busy. There’s a great variety of puzzles to play including Sudoku, Crosswords, Word Finds, and much much more. If you like puzzle games, you’ll love this app!

Work Appropriate Halloween Outfits

Welcome back to Talk Fabulous, lovelies!

Halloween is such a fun holiday in my book. The decorations, the food, the CANDY, and the costumes. Not all costumes are work appropriate, though, and not all offices share our love of this festive holiday. If your office fits into this category, have no fear! We have some subtle, work appropriate Halloween outfits you can rock at the office this year!

First up is the most subtle look of the bunch. If you don’t want to appear too over-the-top, simply wear orange and black. You can be festive yet still look professional.

Add some Halloween earrings, if you’re feeling extra daring.

If you’re looking for a work appropriate costume, may I suggest the Audrey Hepburn? Throw on a black dress, layer on the pearls, and don’t forget the classic Audrey Hepburn hair. Easy, classy, and office approved.

Need more ideas. Here’s a few fun ones straight from Pinterest:

There you have it! Several easy and quick work appropriate Halloween outfit ideas you can use this week!

A Pink Twist

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Fall is in full swing here in the Midwest. Hues of red, orange, and yellow are all around us. I love these fall colors as much as the next gal, but sometimes I like to switch it up.

We interrupt this regularly scheduled autumn color scheme to bring you this pop of pink! We all know how I love a good pop of pink! I mirrored the inspiration photo as closely as possible with the exception of the necklace. I love the multi-colored statement necklace in the inspiration pic. The only bold necklace I had that would work for this look, though, was this pink one. I’m not mad at it. In fact, I’m loving this look!

How do you keep things fresh during the seasons? Do you ever add an “off” season color to your outfit?

That’s all for today. Have a fabulous day, lovelies!

Red is for Everyday

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!  We’re so happy you’re here!

Today, let’s talk about the color red.  Oh, how I love red!  I didn’t always have a love affair with this color, though.  My past self thought red was too bold and bright for me.  It was my grandma who bought me a red shirt and said every blonde-haired girl needs some red in their wardrobe.  She was right and I’ve never looked back.

I love the gray and maroon combo in the inspiration pic.  To switch it up a bit, I chose a classic red shirt to pair with the gray scarf.  I think either way looks fabulous!  I finished off my look with skinny jeans and some black ballet flats.  Which is your favorite?

That’s all for today!  Have a fabulous day, lovelies!

10 Ways to Wear Leggings this Fall

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Can you believe it’s almost officially fall? I know I can’t. Time has been flying by! September in the Midwest can be a bit of a rollercoaster. One day the crisp, cool fall breeze has us reaching for a jacket and the next we’ll want to jump in the pool to stay cool. It’s crazy!

Today, I’ve put together 10 outfit ideas featuring one of our favorite apparel items…leggings. Leggings are basically a girl’s BFF. They’re comfy, chic, and can be worn for nearly any occasion. What’s not to love about that, right? These outfit ideas aim to transition us nicely from warm, summer-like fall to the crisp, cool days of fall. Enjoy!

There we have it! 10 ways to wear leggings this fall!

10 Outfits to Jump Start Your Fall

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe it’s September already! Where on earth did the summer go? As disappointing as it is to see summer passing by in the rear-view mirror, we can only move forward. So, fall here we come!

Today, I’ve put together 10 fall outfit ideas just for you! There’s a few things all these outfits have in common. First of all, there’s no boots making an appearance yet. I’m not ready for boot weather. Instead, you’ll find sandals, ballet flats, and pumps. Secondly, these outfits either have long pants or skirts or a long-sleeved shirt or jacket. The cooler temps call for covering up a bit more, but don’t be afraid to still show some skin. Lastly, all these looks contain fall colors. I never thought much about colors of the seasons living in the Midwest. We essentially have a specific wardrobe for spring, summer, fall, and winter. One of my sister-in-laws lives in Arizona and she mentioned something one day that made me realize colors for seasons is important. She said she needed to pull out her fall colored summer wear. Light bulb moment! Living in Arizona where the temperature is still sweltering in the early fall, you still need your shorts and tanks. Having those items in fall colors can help transition into the fall months even when the temperature isn’t quite ready yet.

Without further ado, let’s get into the outfit ideas!

Which outfit is your favorite?
