Well, here in New England we’re certainly feeling that fall weather now! The seasonal change sure is exciting, but the cooler, drier weather can easily do a number on your skin. You may find yourself already reaching for lotion more often or itching some dry skin. While it’s a somewhat easy fix for your body, what about for your face? You want to keep it moisturized without completely blocking your pores. Plus, we’re in the in-between weather where it’s freezing in the morning and at night, but gets pretty warm mid-day and occasionally brings on that little bit of face shine no one wants. Girl, we’ve got you covered.

Three words: Moisturizing Matte Primer.

If you don’t usually use a primer in your daily makeup routine, we suggest trying one out now. Our pick is the CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Primer. Why do we love this primer? For one, it’s great at doing what a primer is intended to do -- hold your makeup in place all day long. It’s a great matte option so that even if you have oily skin, your face should stay shine-free throughout the day. But the key for this transitioning weather is picking a primer like this one that will keep you moisturized, too!

Fall Wedding Guest Fashion

Finding the right outfit to wear as a guest to a wedding is no small feat! We all know the ageless rule of never wearing white to a wedding, but beyond that, there usually aren’t too many other guidelines to go off of. A change in season also means you most likely need to rotate into a new outfit from what you may have worn to any summer weddings. No fear, we’re here to help you pick the perfect fall wedding outfit to make you feel beautiful and confident!

We LOVE the colors of fall, and this is the perfect way to showcase them! We lean towards the deeper richer tones compared to the bright colors of summer. Think navy, burgundy, burnt orange, forest green, plum, and black. These colors are flexible for both day and evening weddings and are timeless, meaning you can re-wear them for years to come.

For fall, we like to stick with solid colors versus the bright, fun patterns of summer. This delivers a more crisp, warm feel and really allows the stunning colors to flourish!

Your outfit style depends on a number of factors: dress code, time of day, and what you’re comfortable with! That being said, there are many versatile styles that can transition between various scenarios. Some of our favorites are a little black dress, a classic cocktail dress, and a fresh new jumpsuit.

Little Black Dress

We never get sick of the little black dress! These beauties are the perfect staples that every woman should keep in her closet for times of need. It’s a low stress option that fits perfectly in almost any scenario.

Cocktail Dress

A cocktail dress is our favorite way to let those fall colors shine! We know that so many styles fall under this category, and that’s part of what we love about it. Look for a nice simple cut that flatters the figure and pair it with a statement piece necklace and earrings.

Jumpsuit

 Looking for something a little fresher and trendier? Grab a jumpsuit! This provides a chic, smooth look with an updated and trendy twist. We're loving how beautiful these look on and how much they lengthen those legs!

fall fashion must-haves

We’re so excited that it’s finally fall! A change in season means a change in style… and PV is here to help you navigate the fall trends. Here are our must have staples for the fabulous fall weather!

 

Riding Boots

Every girl should have a solid pair of leather riding boots in her fall wardrobe. These boots are so versatile, pair them with anything from skirts to jeans to leggings and you’re ready to go. We love to top the look off with some knit socks or leg warmers peeking out the top

Blanket Scarf

Here at PV, we love to snuggle up in a gorgeous blanket scarf. Want to keep it simple but feel like your outfit is missing something? You need a blanket scarf! This simple addition will add infinite style.

One of our faves can be found at Target, here!

 

Classic Trench Coat

There’s something swoon-worthy about a classic trench coat. It adds a level of class and sophistication that a classic windbreaker or light jacket lacks, while remaining the perfect weight for that in-between fall weather!

Bonus: you can get a great jacket without the stereotypical price tag. We like this jacket from Express!

Poncho

Time to upgrade from cardigans and sweaters to a chic new poncho. Throw it over your favorite tee with jeans or leggings, or mix it up and layer over a nice dress with some boots!
