Hi there! Long time no blog! As I explained on the blog's Facebook page, I've been busy with rotations but am finally back! As fall began a little while ago, I thought it would be fun to share how I prepare for the "change of seasons" while living on a tropical island. The coldest it gets here is around the high 70s and even that starts in December! All the while, my favorite bloggers and youtubers start changing their wardrobes and I feel left out! Here are some tips to keep up with the autumn/fall trends if you live in a tropical paradise like me!

Fall colors in fresh, breathable clothing
I would love to be wearing gorgeous knit sweaters, tights with over the knee boots, and huge scarves but if I did so I would die of a heat stroke! Instead I try to find items in fall colors like burgundy (midi skirt, dress for a night out, jersey dresstop, bag) or olive/khaki green (blouseskirt, v-neck shirt, off the shoulder topdress) made in breathable materials such as cotton. Plaid prints also start popping up in store but they tend to come in thicker materials. Look for ones that are lighter such as this one. You could also try using materials such as corduroy or suede for that fall feel.

Light layers
We've all seen those beautiful winter coats that just seem to make any fall/winter outfit look like a million dollars. Unfortunately, they are not a realistic option for someone living on a tropical island. What can you wear instead? Denim jackets, cardigans, bomber jackets, blazers or military jackets are  great options! If you keep whatever you're wearing underneath very light, like a cotton t-shirt, this is a fantastic way to pull together an outfit. If it gets too hot wrap it around your waist! Perfect for keeping the look and even accentuating your figure!

Fall lipstick and makeup
The easiest way to change your look this fall is to try darker lips! Its the simplest thing you can do to instantly make you look more fall appropriate. You all know I love my Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors and I'm loving the tone Infatuation for this upcoming fall! My all time favorite dark lip would have to be Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Blackberry Sorbet. Its a gorgeous dark berry color that drys matte and lasts all night long, even through hamburgers! If you're looking to broaden your dark lips collection, check out this new Sephora Favorites: Gimme Some Bold Lip. It includes 6 bold lipsticks for $28! A great gift for a friend...or yourself! Be sure to pair your darker lip with a soft berry toned blush, like this one from Hourglass (Milani dupe here!), for a beautiful, put-together look.
