September Favorites

It’s been a couple of months since I updated you on my favorites, but I have so many good finds from September! I’ve had fun prepping my wardrobe for Fall and sharing try on hauls throughout the month. Keep reading to see what I’ve loved throughout September, including my favorite Amazon finds and my beauty must-haves.

FASHION FAVORITES

denim-skirt-outfit-ideas-strawberry-chic

V neck buttoned blouse

My favorite affordable find of the month. I love all the details in this $20 top! The size 8 fits me like a small. It is sheer so I layer a nude tank underneath.

Scrunched boots

I’ve talked about these boots all September long and have featured them in every try on video this month! I don’t think I can find a better boot for $40, but if you do you know I’ll share it here with you! I would size up a half-size in these for extra room with socks. The toe narrows a bit but I wouldn’t consider it a pointed toe. If you’re wondering, I use boot shapers I found at Home Gods (like these).

If you missed my try on videos, catch up here: Target | Loft | H&M | Amazon

Bow clutch

I fell hard for this blush bow clutch this month. Are we surprised? I styled it here in my Fall wedding guest dress guide.

Striped long sleeve cozy knit scarf

So good I bought two colors! I’ve been especially loving the gray and white version. I sized up to a medium and you can style it off the shoulder if you’d like.  I’ve worn it almost every weekend around the house.

David Yurman dupe

I’ve worn this daily since I bought it earlier this month. It’s featured in my Amazon haul if you’re looking for more designer dupes, I mentioned a few more in that video. It runs big but I can loop it around any of the links to get it to fit perfectly.

BEAUTY FAVORITES

Non-toxic shampoo and conditioner

I’m pretty convinced a change in my shampoo and conditioner led to a bad breakout situation on my back, neck, and jaw line. I switched to this mid-month and it’s been clearing up! This was recommended to me by a few of you on Instagram, and I love their clean ingredient philosophy. I do wish it was formulated without fragrance, though

Tarte shape tape

When I tried this last year I wasn’t a fan because of the smell. I gave it a second chance after watching so many YouTubers rave about it and I can see why everyone loves it. It’s full coverage, matte, and doesn’t crease. I wear the shade fair-light neutral.

Drugstore matte foundation

A repeat offender from my August favorites, but this one is still my #1 fave! I’ve tried out the new Nars Radiant foundation this month, but I think it gets too shiny for my liking.  I’m shade 103, but I have a feeling I will be at 101 before I know it 🙂

LIFESTYLE FAVORITES

Gold iPhone stand

I think this is by far my favorite purchase of the month. It seemed silly to me when I first heard about a stand for your iPhone. It’s a game changer for those of you who love watching IG stories and YouTube on your phone. I can still watch but stay productive because I’m not holding my phone in my hand. It’s also great for making hands-free videos.

Face Shaver

I’ve used these face razors for years but I recently noticed clogged, angry pores along my jaw line a few days after if it wasn’t a new fresh razor every use. I added this to my Amazon order and it’s so much easier to use! It’s completely pain-free and I have more control over it. If you’re not listening because you’re like um what, you shave your face?? Then I have my biggest skin care secret to share! Removing the peach fuzz from your face will make your skin look so smooth, especially when you apply makeup.  You pay more upfront but hopefully, it will last longer than the razors.

DIY SNS nail kit and powder

Mid-September I tried doing my own SNS dip nails after a lot of friends on Instagram recommended it. I had no idea this was so easy! I bought this kit on Amazon and have been hooked ever since. I’m still playing with my technique, but I will share a tutorial and review as soon as I figure everything out!

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

  • Happy Friday Friends! Welcoming the Fall weather with the windows open in the John household. Why does the Fall air feel more refreshing and clean?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I went ahead and ordered another color in this slim puffer vest on sale under $20. I live in them at work because I’m always cold but it doesn’t restrict me from working on patients. My ruffle sweatshirt is part of a sale on sale and under $25. It’s made a second appearance on my feed so you know it’s good and it will go fast💕.

  • I see you Friday 🙌🏼 This post is going up a little late because I lost track of time de stressing in a hot bubble bath 💆🏼‍♀️ Y’all may have noticed on IG stories today took it out of me. Anyone else a fan of taking baths?? This wrap sweater was featured in my Abercrombie try on haul (swipe up in my try on highlight to see all my styled looks). If you buy anything from the haul I recommend the lace cami because you will wear it under everything!

  • Not sure about the pajama trend? This blouse is an easy way to pull it off. Not to mention, it feels like my pillow case and I’m all about that 🙌🏼 This look would be perfect for date night and I’ve been loving this rust color paired with the unexpected blush. But let’s be real, y’all know I’ll pair anything with blush. 💕 This look is from my recent @abercrombie try on haul. Swipe up in stories to watch if you missed it!
