Stylestop: Tiny Wins for Fall

8.08.2014



This month I teamed up with Crystal Light to share my fashion, beauty and fitness secrets to help you have the best Fall ever. Little lifestyle changes quickly add up to big results, so read on to discover my #tinywin tips!



TIP 1: AMP UP YOUR ACCESSORIES
Transition your favorite summer wardrobe staples into Fall by stocking up on cute cold-weather accessories. I'm a huge fan of over-the-knee socks, felt fedoras, and loose beanies, so I can wear my favorite denim cutoffs a few months longer.

Outfit details: Nasty Gal Sharp Contrast blouse, Vintage denim cutoffs (similar here), ASOS felt fedora, Apt 9 over-the-knee socks (similar here), Lancaster Paris crossbody bag, Rose Gold booties.





TIP 2: GET LIPPY
Fall is the perfect time to change up your makeup look! Experiment with new colors to transition into your most beautiful season yet. I love lipstick because it's so affordable but can completely change your look. One of my favorite brands? NYX. You can get them for so cheap online or at Target, they have about a million colors to choose from, and they stay on your lips forever. Try out their darker hues for Fall like Berry, Plum and Crimson shades. 

Lipstick colors (clockwise from top right): Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Crimson, Bare Minerals Lipstick in Live Large, NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot, Nars Lipstick in Funny Face, NYX Lipstick in Medusa, Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Icon (what I'm wearing below).





TIP 3: KEEP ON SPINNING
Fall's cooling temps make it the perfect season to bike to work. I also love organizing bike excursions with my girlfriends on the weekend, even if it's just to brunch or to a local park for a picnic before the weather gets too cold. For those in NYC without a bike, you've got no excuse: there's always Citibike! 





TIP 4: ADD A LITTLE SPRITZ TO YOUR STEP
Refresh after a bike ride or a long day at the office with a healthy and refreshing fruit spritzer. My boyfriend and I played around with muddling Crystal Light with some fresh berries and herbs, arriving at the tasty recipe below. It's way better for you than sodas or fruit juices, and is super easy to make (plus if you're over 21 it tastes great with a little rum as well).

Minty Blackberry Lemonade Spritzer
Ingredients:

  • 1 Crystal Light liquid drink mix in Blackberry Lemonade
  • 1 bottle soda water
  • 1 lime
  • 1 mint bunch
  • 1 handful of blackberries
Recipe:


  • MUDDLE blackberries with a splash of soda water. 
  • ADD club soda, mint; stir.
  • ADD one squeeze of drink mix and juice from half a lime; stir.
  • SERVE over ice cubes in tall glasses. Garnish with lime slices.
Adult Version:
  • MUDDLE 2oz white rum with blackberries in step one above.

  2. Shopping is so much fun but we have to do it intelligently. We dont want to spend too much on an item we love during summer if later on the year we are going to leave it behind!
