    Fall is not only the time to bring out those chunky knit scarves or oversized sweaters, but to use those berry stained lipsticks and chocolatey hued eye shadow pallets as well! We've put together a collection of tutorials for some fall makeup inspiration. Take a look at some different looks to compliment the changing colors of the leaves or the cooler night breeze. 

    The beautiful Carrie from Wish Wish Wish displays a smokey eye to warm up your eyes on those chilly nights. By adding metallic eye shadow to the look, she's able to make the traditional smokey eye glisten and shine. We are smitten with how soft her smokey eyes look and are dreaming of copying this look at our holiday party!

    Martha Lynn at Camille Styles shares about her love for rich burgundy lipsticks. Against a neutral ensemble or simple makeup, it can add the perfect touch to your fall outfit. Whether you're enjoying a cup of tea with a friend or stepping out into the crisp air, these bright berry stained hues will be the center of attention.

    Keiko Lynn shows us a pretty and feminine look to enhance your daytime makeup. She uses chocolate hues on her eyes and a pretty pink for her lips. You can wear this look for fall date nights to the ice-rink or to your favorite restaurant. We adore how rosy her cheeks look, giving off a natural glow!

    maskCARA creates a dramatic look for the season. Using a berry stained lipstick and gel shadow allows for a dreamy palette, while lining the waterlines will draw attention to the eyes. Her long tousled tresses complete the look!

    Now that autumn is in full swing, don't let the days fly by without downloading our November desktop calendar. Make sure you enjoy each day's cool air and falling leaves. Though Black Friday shopping won't be until the end of the month, we can't wait to try out hot apple cider drinks and turkey dishes in preparation for Thanksgiving! Happy fall Ruchettes!

    This month's Ruchette of the Month inspires us to be confident in ourselves, explore our local fare, and enjoy every moment. Chelsea, of Tea Talk, embodies joy in every outfit and lifestyle post, plus we can't help but swoon over her trademark long blonde hair! We love reading about her local favorites near Phoenix, Arizona, and adventures with her husband Scott (who we have to thank for being the inspiration for her blog since Chelsea started it 7 years ago to show him her traveling adventures). We are so excited to have this stylish, smart, and coffee-loving lady as our November Ruchette of the Month!

    ROM_november

    You currently reside just outside of Phoenix, AZ. What are some of your favorite things to do in your town?
    Great question! I love going down to my favorite local coffee shop for an iced coffee and taking a stroll with my husband through our historic downtown square. I also love exploring our neighborhood orchards and tree farms, and spending time out on the patio of our favorite local restaurants. We love our quaint town!

    What do you think is the key to finding your own personal style?
    In all honesty, I believe the key to finding your own personal style is to wear only styles that you love. I know it can be tough with so many trends coming and going, but by going with your gut feeling of what you love, rather than hopping on every trend, you're able to hone in on your true, personal style much more easily.

    You have done an amazing job of documenting your wedding on your blog! Do you have any wedding planning advice to share?
    What a sweet compliment! Thank you so much! When it comes to wedding planning advice, I would say take things one step at a time and always listen to you heart. Wedding planning can be very overwhelming and oftentimes your vision can get lost if you're letting yourself be influenced by too many people or things. Focus on what's important to you and your soon-to-be husband and everything will work itself out perfectly in the end.

    Describe your perfect party outfit.
    OH! My perfect party outfit would include a classic dress (in black, or maybe even full sequins), bold jewelry, elegant heels and the most perfect evening bag to top it off! I'm a simple gal, but I LOVE a good party outfit!

    ruchette-style

    Are there any recipes or dishes you're looking forward to making during the colder months ahead?
    YES! I absolutely adore baking in the winter time and always look forward to whipping out my grandma's old cookbook and making her famous chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch fudges. They are seriously to die for, and so easy to make!

    Quick Fire!
    Hot or Iced Coffee? Iced Coffee!
    Fiction or Nonfiction? Fiction!
    Home cooked meal or a dinner out? Dinner out!
    Favorite season? Fall!
    Phone, keys, wallet and....a cardigan!

    Last but not least, what is your favorite thing about being a Ruchette?
    My favorite thing about being a Ruchette is getting to be a part of this amazing community of stylish gals! 

    Chelsea's blog is the perfect stop for your fashion fixes and adventure inspiration. With her sweet smile and honest advice, this lovely lady is truly a gem of a Ruchette!

We're rounding up the last week of a dress-filled month with a few of our favorite looks featuring frocks perfectly styled for a fall day!

    M Loves M's Mara never fails to make us swoon with her effortlessly romantic style. She pairs this pleated burgundy frock with sparkling jewelry and edgy black ankle boots for an ensemble that is perfect for a downtown date night. We absolutely adore this color on her! ruche_burgundy_pleated_dress_1

    How adorable is Elana of Room 334? We love this colorful floral frock paired with mustard cardigan, one of our favorite fall hues! We love this playful frock and how Elana has styled it for a warm day in fall. Her sandals and minimal jewelry complete her outfit!Shop-Ruche-Everyday-Magic-Floral-Dress

    Wise Soul blogger Mckenzie embodies all things fall with her rustic outfit. From her earthy hues to too-cute ankle boots and socks, we can't help but adore this ensemble. Her simple crossbody purse is definitely an autumn essential! wise-soul-purse

    We can't think of a better way to spend a cozy Sunday in fall than by eating, drinking, and being cozy. We're bundling up and sharing breakfast in bed with the ones we love most (including our pups!). Enjoy your Sunday, Ruchettes!
