September. Its my favorite month of the year for so many reasons, not the least of which is the official start of fall fashion season. We’ve all had time to peruse and bookmark the September issues of our favorite magazines, so now we have our list of brands and products we are loving this month. They will get you through the fall in style without breaking the bank!
We’ve talked about these seriously comfortable jeans before but once is never enough when it comes to a good pair of skinny jeans. The dark wash is flattering, the stretch hugs your curves but don’t stretch like many brands and they do run slightly long, which is great for our taller girls. In addition, the soft Emana fibers in the jean include bio-crystals that absorb body heat, transfer the heatwaves back to the body, and work to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Need we say more?
September also means back-to-school, farmer’s markets and even apple picking on the weekends. And for all of that, you’re going to need a good bag to get you through in style. We came across the ESPEROS bag company and were sold on their fun and functional designs, as well as their message. For each bag sold, it helps to fund a year of education for a child in a developing country, plus you’ll look super cute in your Instagram photos!
The summer can take a toll on your skin. Between long (read: sweaty) nights on the dance floor or hot (read: still sweaty) days on the beach, its time to hit reset. Enter the Seacliff Facial Exfoliant from Soul Sunday. Perfect for an actual Sunday at-home spa treatment, you only have to mix this with water for a great facial scrub that will leave your skin feeling fresh and glowing. Bonus: Ingredients like Himalayan pink salt and rose clay give it a great earthy smell.
We don’t know about you, but one of the toughest fashion challenges we face is finding cute work clothes that we can also wear to happy hour and beyond. Pleione is our latest solution to this dilemma and its a comfy and cute one at that! Sold at stores like Nordstrom as well as online, this brand specializes in flattering, flowy tops bright colors and fun patterns that will look as great under a blazer as they do paired with a mini skirt.
Another step we have been taking this year is working to take better care of our skin. Your 20s are the time to do this as prevention against wrinkles and increasing elasticity is key before your 30s set in. derma-e gives that boost of care with nourishing serums that contain antioxidants, vitamins and botanicals to have your skin looking softer and smoother. You can layer their serums underneath your favorite moisturizer, or use them alone on oily, acne-prone skin for healthy and beautiful results.
Made-in-America is always top of mind when we shop, so we loved when we found Sweatbar, the athletic-wear online boutique based out of San Fransisco. In addition to the USA appeal, they also source some seriously cute designer work out gear. From yoga to running to tennis, they have colorful options with cool touches like sheer paneling that might (maybe) make going to the gym fun!
Fall is also a fun time to nail down your makeup look! We love Skinn Cosmetics for their super smooth lipsticks and phenomenal foundation. The core of the foundation is fully loaded with nutrients like Vitamin C for brightening, Hyaluronic Acid for maximum hydration, a Peptide blend for anti-aging effects, as well as Grape Seed, Argan and Rosehip Oils for antioxidant and skin conditioning benefits. Yes, all that is packed into one little foundation.
No matter how much time you spend on the treadmill, you still want to look good on the weekends or for date night! We Are Kindred has drama, feminine touches and great cuts that flatter a variety of body types. We have been drooling over their fall lookbook and can’t wait to work all that lace, fringe and brocade as the weather gets cooler.
