5 Fall Essentials

It has been a little while I shared my fall essentials (you can see my last post here), so I wanted to share my updated list today!

1. Army jacket

This is the perfect lightweight layering piece for the fall! I love pairing it with a pair of jeans or a dress.

2. Ankle boots

Ankle boots are my go-to shoe to wear during the fall because they go with everything! My biggest tip when wearing them with jeans is to cuff your pants so you can see some of your ankle. It looks  a little more polished than having your jeans be too baggy around your ankle boots.

3. Scarf

Nothing is better or cozier than wearing a scarf in the fall. My go to is a plaid or camo blanket scarf.

4. Leggings

I love a good pair of leggings with a tunic or an oversized sweater. I like having a classic cotton pair of leggings as well as a pair of faux leather leggings.

5. Long cardigan

Another great layering piece is a long cardigan (especially for the office). I love wearing them with just about everything in the fall.

Cauliflower Gnocchi Sheet Pan Dinner

Cauliflower Gnocchi Sheet Pan Dinner-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

I’m mentioned my love of Trader Joe’s before (you can see my favorite items here). I love their cauliflower gnocchi and one of my favorite weeknight meals to make is this cauliflower gnocchi sheet pan dinner! This dinner is full of flavor, is easy, and is vegetarian (although my meat loving husband likes this dish too). Here’s how to make it:


2 bags of Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi

1 can of white beans

1 pint of grape tomatoes

2 bell peppers

1 red onion

1 can of tomato sauce



  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Slice the peppers and onion, and cut the grape tomatoes in half.
  3. Place the 2 bags of Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi, peppers, onion, and grape tomatoes on a cookie sheet. Then drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss.
  4. Put the cookie sheet in the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, toss again, and place the white beans on top of the cauliflower mixture.
  6. Bake for 10 more minutes.
  7. Place a serving in a bowl and top with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese.
  8. Enjoy!

4 Ways to Wear Leopard This Fall

My favorite thing to wear in the fall is anything leopard! I’ve been adding even more leopard to my wardrobe this year, which may or may not be a problem (I just picked up this leopard dress and these leopard earrings). Today I thought it would be fun to share my 4 favorite ways to wear leopard this season, which ranges from fully embracing leopard with a midi dress or adding a pop of leopard with a clutch. Which is your favorite way to wear this print?

What I’ve Been Reading: October

What I've Been Reading: October-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

Today I wanted to share another update about what I’ve been reading lately! I mentioned before, but I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to read more and watch less TV (you can see past books that I’ve read here and here). Reading is such a great way to relax at the end of the day, and I’ve been really enjoying everything I’ve read lately:

1. Where the Crawdads Sing

Kya lives in a coastal town of North Carolina where everyone calls her the ‘Marsh Girl.’ She has survived and lived alone since she was very young, and her friends and family are the creatures of the marsh. When a boy in town named Chase Andrews is found dead, everyone automatically suspects Kya and an investigation begins. This book was truly amazing, and I was in tears and shocked at the ending. It’s a book that I couldn’t put down!

Rating: 5/5 stars

2. How Could She

This book is all about female friendship and it follows the stories of Geraldine, Sunny, and Rachel. It shows how friendships change throughout time, which I think is very relevant in your 30’s and beyond. This book honestly didn’t have much of a plot, which is why I only gave it 3 stars.

Rating: 3/5 stars

3. American Royals

What if George Washington was the first King instead of the first President? This one is all about the American royal family, and Prince Beatrice is about to ascend the thrown as the first Queen. This book is the first in the trilogy and it’s amazing, however it definitely leaves off on a cliff hanger!

Rating: 5/5 stars

4. That’s What Frenemies Are For

Julia lives on the Upper East Side with her husband and two children and seems to have it all, and she loves the influence that she has over her friends. Then her house is flooded in the Hamptons and she’s stuck in NYC for the summer. She thinks all is ruined, but finds a new boutique gym in her neighborhood where she is transformed over the summer. She also takes one of the instructors, Tatum, under her wing and plans to make a comeback at the end of the summer that puts her back on top. However, her life goes out of control when her husband is arrested and everyone turns their backs on her. This book was ok overall, but I have a hard time loving a book where I dislike the main character. It’s a fun book though, and it’s a quick and easy read!

Rating: 3/5 stars
