Since entering menopause, I’ve had to switch up my wardrobe. Particularly during the transition period from Summer to Fall. You never know when a hotflash might present itself, so I wear a lot more sleeveless and layer, layer, layer. This sweatshirt is perfect for this. It’s super flattering with a slight high-low hemline. It’s got pockets and a high neck, which I love. The fabric is a nice medium weight cotton with a little spandex. This is a well made sweatshirt that doesn’t look like a sweatshirt. It washes well and will great for years to come.
Wide leg jeans are on trend. What we love about them is that they are unstructured and a nice departure from skinnys. Tuck-in a chucky sweater or a fitted top and elevate the look with a pair of chucky boots or wedge oxfords and you’ve got an on-trend outfit for fall. I bought the off-white for summer. I've already ordered the denim. They're light, flattering on a curvy figure and bonus they’re on sale.
Since January, my sister and I have started our day by journaling using The Five Minute Journal. We were never big on journaling, at least not consistently,, but we’ve since found that it’s a great way to start the day by focusing on the positive and being more mindful through gratitude. This journal has six months of guided and structured exercises to help you build the habit. The fall is a great time to kick this off especially with the holidays right around the corner.
If you’re on insta, you will have most likely seen the Ogee make-up demos. It’s three sticks - a contour, a blush and a highlighter. I ended up making the purchase because I had such a great experience with the nourishing trio that I was gifted this past summer. I have to say, I’m a bit obsessed with this because it is seriously makes your skin glow and it doesn’t settle in the wrinkles. More importantly its cruelty-free, certified organic, not tested on animals, non-GMO and made in the USA.
This serum. It's still on our list. It's definitely a splurge, but I love how silky and fabulous my skin looks and feels after applying it. TNS Advanced+ serum is one of the few products with growth factors that I know of. I read about the benefit of growth factors in an Allure article. I’m not gonna lie, this is expensive, but well worth it.
I don’t know about you, but I’m psyched for this season when I can transition out of sandals and into tennis shoes. As I've gotten older, my heal height has gone down. Now I'm all about sneakers. We’re loving this sneaker brand because they’re super comfy. These shoes are made with recycled materials, organic cotton, and sustainably-sourced leather. They’re great paired with just about any outfit.
Are you still looking for that perfect sunscreen? I know me too. My sunscreen varies by season. This time of year my fave is ISDIN. It was recommended by my dermatologist. It’s mineral, zinc-based, fast-absorbing and light. It blends well and doesn’t feel heavy when you layer foundation. It comes in both tinted and non-tinted formulations and is best for sun damaged or actinic skin. I'm obesessed. I use it in the summer and the fall.
Fall is all about layering and this lululemon full-zip scuba hoodie is the perfect layering piece. Just the right weight for transitioning from one season to the next. Best of all, it’s comfy, soft, and comes in lots of colors. My sister and I made this purchase without even knowing it. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. It’s definitely worth the splurge.
Both my sister and I picked up a lightweight vest from Old Navy a couple of years ago. They were the perfect weight and the perfect price. Vests are great to wear over a long-sleeve tee or sweater for a little extra warmth. My other go-to vest is the J.Crew Excursion vest. Best of all, they're on sale for fall.
