Pastel Fall Fashion

Pastel Fall Accessories to Cozy Up To!

Fall is officially *here*! I am in LOVE with fall, pumpkin spice, and leaves. If you have an issue with that, oh well! This season is all about being cozy, and spending time outside. Plus, the weather isn’t unbearable and its the perfect time to get outside! What could be more perfect? To me, pretty much nothing. It’s the perfect time of year to wear pastel fall accessories!

I have started to lean into loving more and more pastel colors lately, just because I think they are gorgeous! I love how soft and gentle they are, and easy to style with! You can mix and match, and it still looks adorable. So many options! I tend to lean towards pastel pinks and lavenders, but seriously, any pastel is a go for me.

Pastel Fall – Scarves, Scarves, Scarves!!

Scarves are very possibly some of my favorite ways to dress up an outfit. Once summer rolls around and I can’t wear scarves anymore, its a sad moment for me. This pastel scarf is adorable and a super easy way to cozy up your outfit! Plus its super soft on the skin! You can tie your scarf a bunch of different ways too, to always change up the look!

Infinity scarves eliminate having to tie your scarf! I love an infinity scarf, just because they’re so easy to toss on and just go. This pastel one is so sweet and could easily add a pop of color to any outfit!

Serious ice cream and sherbet vibes! This knitted pastel infinity scarf is perfect for all the chilly upcoming weather! Where I live, it’s already cool enough for 

Pastel Fall – Jewelry!

I love a good necklace. This bib styled one is gorgeous, with earrings to match! A little pastel pink never hurt anybody, and this would be a perfect statement piece to go with a monochromatic outfit!

Sparkle! I love a cute crystal earring, and this dangling set have lots of different pastel shades! They also come in brighter shades, and you can wear them all year long. Sounds like a win to me! You could also likely DIY these, if you’re feeling crafty!

Lastly, I’m loving this circular beaded necklace! This one comes in SO many colors, so no matter what colors are your favorites, you probably can get one you love!

Pastel Fall – Bags, Bags, Bags!

If its weird or quirky, I am ALLLLL over it! This holo, glittery, planet bag is EVERYTHING and would be perfect as a fun accent to a fall outfit! Everything during fall tends to feel so muted, so why not add some glitter? 

Bring on all the weird shaped bags! I’ve always been a mermaid, so why not tote a shell shaped bag? Again, why not add a fun pop of color onto the muted shades of fall. Plus, who doesn’t want to be a mermaid?!

Who wouldn’t want to add a little Minnie Mouse to their wardrobe?! This cute, pastel bag is perfect for toting your must haves, all while staying really cute. Plus, I love a bow!

10 Ways to Get Self Care At Work – Mental Health

Self care has been a seriously hot topic recently. It seems that more and more people are starting to see how important it really is, but some people still might be misunderstanding self care. Or, some people might suggest there isn’t enough time in the day for self care. What a terrifying idea! Enter ways to get self care at work.

Most of us spend a ton of time at work, whether it be a desk job, or something similar. Work is also one of the most stressful parts of our day, and sometimes we carry that stress home with us as well. For me, I feel like most of my work stress stems from thinking of all the stuff I need to get done at home. Sometimes I really need to take better care of myself at work so I can be more productive.

Enter self care that you can practice while at work!

I am a big time believer in self care and how you can use it to transform your entire LIFE! Seriously, once you try it and see how effective it is, you’ll probably never want to go back. I know that I live for my nights in where I get to indulge a little in some self care, so bringing that comfort with me to work is important and seriously has helped me to up my game!

Self Care at Work Ideas

  1. Sip water all day long. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Make sure you are getting enough water, because when you’re dehydrated, you tend to feel like a garbage bin. Grab a cute reusable bottle, and fill it up often! I keep a reusable plastic tumbler on my desk, and always fill it up with fresh water first thing in the morning.
  2. Recognize when you need a break. Stressed? Take a minute, get some fresh air or excuse yourself for a moment. Clear your mind, get focused again, and get back to work. Getting centered again is everything!
  3. Don’t underestimate a to do list. I keep a todo list for myself in my planner to help me make sure that I tackle everything I need to in the day. Check off as you go, and feel accomplished every step of the way.
  4. Snack when you’re hungry. I know so many people who love to work straight through the lunch hour and tackle work, but seriously, take a break for a snack to keep your energy level up. You feel better when you aren’t starving!
  5. Pack healthy snacks. Refuel with granola, fruit, and veg for sustainable energy. Sugary processed foods crash your energy, making you feel worse later.
  6. Get enough sleep the night before. Need I say anything else?
  7. Have designated time to respond to emails, calls, etc. Instead of trying to keep up tirelessly with the never ending requests, designate a few times a day to touch base. You’ll feel way less buried and you’ll be more focused when you do respond.
  8. Take a breath. This might sound super silly, but taking a minute and focusing solely on your breathing for a minute can take your anxiety back to a 0.
  9. Leave your work at work. Don’t drag all the stress home. Make a policy with yourself that you will drop the work drama as soon as you leave that door.
  10. Remember to be positive. Try to find something good in everyone you meet. Forcing yourself to look for the good can seriously pick up your mood.
