Fall Fun: Visit a local Flea Market

It is finally getting chilly and that means there are Fun Fall events going on all around! Besides the fall clothing, the Fall-themed events are also great. Every year there is a local flea market I’ve visited since I was very young. Its in the town my mom grew up in and I used to come home from college every year just to visit! Its technically called the mini mart, and not known as a flea market, although I’m not entirely sure of the difference. It features a bunch of little shops, with a lot of homemade stuff. None of it is secondhand, and may be slightly expensive. Although, most shops have affordable items.

Some items I have bought in the past are incense, candles, journals, hippy like clothes, jewelry, and food. This year I bought a lot of stuff (in my opinion spending more than $40 is a lot). I like to save money, but I splurged a little today.

There are a lot of hidden treasures at a local market like this one. The promotion of local businesses is great. I was too nervous to go into the psychic readings shop, even though my mom really wanted to go in. I don’t want to hear what they have to say. Another conversation for another day!

The other picture is my friend Bry with her Sweet and Salty popcorn from SweetPop. That stuff was so good. I got the oreo flavor. There are so many different flavors and I ate my bag very quickly. Only $4 for delicious popcorn!

Items that I bought today:

Soap ($5)

Fudge ($8)

Beer (2 cups-$9 and it benefitted the local fire department)

Popcorn ($4)

Burberry looking scarf ($15)

Irish Claddagh Sterling Silver Ring ($24)

T-Shirt from the Mini-Mart day ($5)

Purple jewel studded Hairclip ($12)

Of course I wanted more stuff! There was this clothing boutique with like gypsy inspired looking dresses and skirts I absolutely loved. I picked up a lot of business cards because a lot of things sparked my interest. I never know what I will buy when I come to the mini mart! You also never know who you will see and I love feeling like I’m at home every time I go.

Falling For Fall: My Favorite Fall Pieces

This is my first blog post! I am going to open it up with a themed post. Since I am obsessed with everything that has to do with Fall, I decided to make my first post Fall themed. I am also planning on making the Falling For Fall a series, so keep on the lookout for that!

There are a couple of favorite fashion pieces I have in the Fall, including Tall Lace Up Brown Boots, Leggings of All Kinds, and a Stylish Warm Jacket. These are my staples for the Fall and the is the backbone of my wardrobe when it starts to get chillier. Let’s begin!

Tall Brown Lace Up Boots

These beauties are from Target and I finally found these pair the other night. You don’t know how hard it is to find this style in at an affordable price! Anyways, this is my favorite Fall item. You can wear them with a dress/skirt with or without leggings, with skinny jeans, or costumes (such as Halloween or Comic Con which I’m going to use them for). They are so kick ass and Victorian era sheek I will always love these boots.

Leggings of All Kinds!

Since I’m not the biggest fan of jeans (they are too constricting for me personally) leggings are a great alternative and they elevate your look. I found these pair off Amazon. Cute fall leggings or just plain black ones can help style tons and tons of outfits. During the Fall and Winter I am wearing leggings almost every day, and don’t feel weird about that. They are also great for working out or just sitting around the house.

Stylish Everyday Jacket

Again, you could could have a couple of stylish warm jackets, but they’re something you’ll be wearing everyday. I found this one at Kohl’s. Maybe sure you spend a little extra money on something that is warm and looks good on your body because you’re going to be wearing this a lot. You’ll also be seen wearing it a lot, so that’s why it is good to make an investment in a killer jacket. I have way too many cute and stylish jackets, but I love them all! Do you have a stylish jacket? If not is there one you’ve been dying to try, such as a bomber jacket or long trench coat? Now is the time to try a new jacket you’ve never owned before!

Those are my absolute favorite Fall pieces. What are yours? I would love to hear in the comments!
