I’ve been getting several requests to do hauls on my purchases so I figured I’d test it out with some of my purchases on my Insta Stories (which is EXTREMELY flattering), so I did. If you’re here from Instagram, hi!! If not follow me @carolinaarango or click here. I linked EVERYTHING I ordered below if you’re interested! Let me know what your thoughts were on the haul!!

There is nothing like a good cross-body; super easy to wear almost anywhere! When it comes to big bags, I hoard and become Mary Poppins, but when I switch over to a tinier purse on the weekends, I take along my essentials ONLY! So to see what I carry 99% of the time, continue reading!

You can shop everything in this bag at the end of the post!

An easy transition into fall is by changing up your usual nail and/or lip color. Here are some of my favorites that are essential for the fall season.

Lips: I find it essential to have a dark, berry colored lip as well as a mauvy, nude. Finding the perfect fall lip varies on your complexion so head over to your nearest beauty department store to test out different shades for yourself. Both of my favorite fall lipsticks happen to be from Bobbi Brown. Below are swatches of the two.

Nails: The easiest way to get into the fall atmosphere is through your manicure. Here are some polishes that suit almost every skin tone and are perfect for the autumn months.
