Five Favorites | Moments With Millie

While I was away, I discovered (and rediscovered) so many wonderful items. Although it’s been a few months, I wanted to share some of those items with you. I will be doing a separate post on my ¬†favorite beauty items. If you know me, then you know I can talk about beauty for days. So I will spare you the really long post. ūüôā Have you rediscovered any oldies but goodies lately?

  1. Denim JacketDenim jackets are a wardrobe staple. They have been around for many years but seem to have been trending in the past few years.¬†Can¬†you believe that I haven’t owned one since I was a kid? I found this one at¬†Forever 21 and I am so happy to be¬†reacquainted with an old friend.
  2. Graphic T-Shirts– I used to have a love-hate relationship with graphic tees. Although I could see their appeal, I thought many of the slogans were¬†cheesy. I found a few simple ones . And now that I have found my preference¬†I just can’t stop wearing them.
  3. Faux Leather Leggings I purchased these leggings years ago however I was really shy to wear them. I traveled quite a bit in the spring and summer months and these leggings were really handy. They did not take up a lot space in my luggage, dressed up any outfit and were very comfortable.
  4. Nike Roshe One- These shoes aren’t new to me or the market but I have been loving them as of late. I have worn them during my recent travels, on casual days, etc. I haven’t been a sneaker wearer since middle school. It’s also nice to be reacquainted with this old friend. I love that I was able to¬†customize my¬†colorway on the Nike site.
  5. Chewing Gum– I know what you are thinking….. chewing gum? Let me explain, I love Chewing Gum- the show. It is a British sitcom available on Netflix. I learned about it in Paris¬†¬†however I didn’t check it out until EvelynFromTheInternets¬†mentioned it in one of her videos. The show is ¬†about a quirky, restricted young lady living in London. The show follows her life of mishaps, funny interactions and life lessons. I love the show but I wouldn’t recommended if you are offended by the sight of bodily fluids.

My Fall Fashion Must Haves

Fall is here again (Yay)! Like many of you, I am in love with fall fashion. And I couldn’t let old man winter get here before I tell you about my must have fall clothing pieces. I will be featuring some of my favorite outfits¬†in the coming weeks. Until then, below are my fall ¬†fashion haves must haves.¬†What would you add to the list?

  1. Leather/Faux Leather Jackets- Leather jackets are an essential part of everyone’s closet. I love how they instantly add edge¬†to boring outfits.
  2. Chunky sweaters- Sweaters are a great way to keep warm in the cooler months. ¬†However if you aren’t careful, they can¬†cause you to¬†look frumpy. I’ve¬†discovered that the key is creating the correct proportions. Pairing chunky sweaters¬†with form fitting bottoms helps your outfit to look more balanced.
  3. Coats/Cardigans/Dusters- As a Florida native, I never had an appreciation for coats. I didn’t invest a lot of time/money into them because I didn’t have a real need to. I have become obsessed with them recently. I think the¬†neutrals are a must- black, brown, khaki, etc. However it is always fun¬†to experiment with bold colors such as red, pastels, etc.
  4.  Totes- Totes are great year round however I find them to be quite handy during the cooler months. They allow enough space to carry bulkier items such as scarves, sweaters, hats, etc.
  5. Plaid- Plaid is a classic print that just screams fall. I love how versatile they are. You can wear them with jeans, skirts, leggings, etc.
  6. Loafers- These are great for those casual fall days. They are also comfortable to wear while shopping for the holidays.
  7. Hats- Im not typically a hat girl however I find them to be quite chic during fall. They are great because they help disguise a bad hair day and while keeping you warm. I like just about all styles including floppies, bowlers, fedoras, beanies, etc.
  8. Scarves- Scarves are an easy way to look chic while keeping warm. Everyone should have a few cozy scarves in their closet.
  9. Boots and booties- These are a must for this season. I love how versatile they are. They can be worn with pants, dresses, skirts, etc.
  10. Chambray shirts- Chambray tops are staples for all seasons however they look especially great with fall staples such as leggings, leather jackets, flannel shirts, etc.
