What I Wore

Transitioning Into Fall

We’ve been experiencing Fall temps lately in NYC, especially last week when we were in the 60′s. This seems weird since we’ve had Indian Summers for at least the last five years that I can remember but there was definitely a chill in the air and a jacket was required.

Usually I don’t have to change up my beauty routine too much for Summer but this year my skin has really been acting out. I’ve been trying a few new skincare products to attempt to get my skin under control and found a few new favorites in the process. The rest of the products is stuff that I’ve tried and loved enough to add to my regular line up. All of these goodies have been in heavy rotation all Summer Long.
