Did you hear that? It’s the sound of leaves crunching under your Chuck Taylor All Stars. What’s that flavor you taste? It’s a delicious pumpkin spice latte warming your tummy. Autumn is here, and we’re jazzed about it!
Leaves will start changing colors (if you happen to reside in a place where fall exists - looking at you Northeast people). You’ll swap your sexy sandals and strappy wedges for suede mules and cute ankle booties (not talking to you Californians; you wear Birkenstocks year-round). You get the idea.
For fall lovers everywhere, gifting is as easy as 1-2-3. Get cozy, get scrolling, and get into these four favorite fall-inspired finds.
THESE SHAWLS ARE OMG SOFT
The perfect gift for your neck this fall? Enter the Bufandy shawl.
These beauties are made in Amsterdam from 80% alpaca wool fiber (the remaining 20% is acrylic), which is known to be softer than silk and incredibly warm. Alpacas can survive in the harsh, high altitude conditions of the Andes, so you best bet that their wool will keep you warm, too!
Choose from a variety of chic colors and patterns that are ideal for the fall season. The solid colored hues include toasted almond, blush rose, toffee, mulberry purple, warm stone, and maroon clay. Gorgeous two-toned (or “doble”) options include rosewater, earth stone, terra rosa, and nightfall (a deepwater blue). Their ombre collection includes warm taupe, ash rose, silver eucalyptus, grey marble, frozen grape, teal oyster, and moody green.
For their beauty and functionality, the Bufandy shawls are a fantastic deal. Their prices are in Euros, so the range is €44,95 for the XS pieces (a little less than $53), €59,95 (a little more than $70) for the solid-colored pieces, €64.95 (a little more than $76) for the ombre pieces, and €74,95 (a little less than $88) for the two-toned details.
All that’s left to ask is, what are you alpaca-n on your next fall adventure?
THIS PUMPKIN PEEL BRINGS TOTAL CLARITY
Anybody who is anybody knows that you cannot spell autumn without pumpkin. That’s why the Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel ($58 for 1.69 oz) from Naturopathica is the essential skincare product you want heading straight out of summer and into awesome autumn.
Firstly, Naturopathica’s line of clean, effective, botanically-based skincare products is ideal for anyone who desires real results without harsh chemicals. All products are vegan and gluten-free.
Now, back to the star of the show. The main ingredients in this peel include pumpkin puree (accelerates exfoliation and acts as a powerful antioxidant and mild retinoic acid substitute), lactic acid at 3% concentration (exfoliates the skin to prevent clogged pores), plus a trio of antiseptic herbs, including cinnamon bark, oregano, and rosemary extract.
While this clarifying peel was designed for those with dull or congested skin, it’s truly a treat for all skin types. It tingles going on, hardens without pulling the skin, and leaves your delicate and beautiful face feeling fresh, radiant, and ready to take on the season.
