October might be my favorite month. There’s this feeling where everything is changing (yes, dying leaves are great and we don’t even have them here), and the weather finally becomes tolerable. There are tons more things to do and explore. So beware for the next month this blog is going to be filled with so many things I love including classic horror movies, chilly weather clothes, and Halloween.
First up my fall wish list. AKA all the things I really want to buy but probably shouldn’t. How could I possibly say no to the H&M jersey dress? They did send it to me in a marketing email as a Halloween costume so I mean…it serves multiple purposes. I’ve mentioned wanting a burgundy/wine colored sweater before and I think I’ll definitely be scooping up this one. The other items are just pretty little things that have caught my eye over the past few weeks. I’m currently working on a fall shop for the blog filled with things I love and recommend for the next few months. Hopefully that will be done and up soon.
SHOP: Sweater, jeans, Rolling Stones tee, ankle boots, handbag, chambray shirt, rings, dress
While browsing the internet there’s been tons of posts about what to wear this fall. Everything from the color red to bags with fur accents. There’s a lot of time spent saying “why” or “I would never wear this.” But then there’s also a 99% chance there will be a burgundy/wine colored sweater in my closet in the next 4 weeks. It happens. Since there are so many trends I choose just some of my favorites making them the ones that truly matter.
Fashion Month is pretty much the greatest procrastination tool ever created. There’s so many things to look at which ultimately take the greatest amount of time away from things I should be doing. In the street style snaps there was one really common look done a variety of ways but featured two main pieces: boyfriend blazers + jeans.
Oh my god, shut up. It’s still hot out. It’s only been September for 5 minutes. – Everyone reading this right now.
But just think of this post as an excuse to go shopping or something. Summer to fall is a weird time. It goes from being 100+ every day to being 70 overnight. It’s hard to make really good outfit choices because one second I’m a little chilly but by 4pm I’m sweating like crazy. There are tons of suggestions on what to do in order to transition a wardrobe between seasons. Keep wearing your favorite sundress but toss on a cardigan (duh). Wear sweaters with shorts. Change out your cute sandals for ankle boots although I actually saw Glamour magazine making a case for wearing your sandals. To each their own I suppose.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte is officially back at Starbucks which means fall is almost here. Okay maybe it’s only the beginning of September and still an average of 106 degrees outside daily, but fall is coming. Even my local Target got in on the action albeit prematurely by featuring three straight mini aisles of pumpkin flavored goods (which had been completely ransacked). I already bought pumpkin spice coffee creamer and I am ready to be rocking sweaters daily.
I’ve already been wearing light, baggy sweaters since about Sunday because I got the most horrible back sunburn over Labor Day. It’s been my saving grace and protection from the sun. Sweaters are my absolute favorite item of clothing because they can be casual or dressed up. There are so many styles to choose from, and they keep you warm. There’s even some materials and cuts that can be worn during the transitional time between summer and fall. Or if you live in Arizona, just the days until suddenly one day its cold and you don’t know how that happened.
Shop Sweaters: ONE | TWO | THREE | FOUR | FIVE | SIX | SEVEN | EIGHT
Ah, Labor Day. The unofficial end of summer is finally here. Too bad the Arizona heat won’t be out of here for at least another month. But it’s time to fully embrace the end of summer and fill the final days with fun activities. There are BBQs, beaches, lakes, boats, picnics, and so many other things to do. I have some really fun plans this weekend, but I’m lacking a little in the style department. I’m just not sure what to wear.
I feel like I’ve been so lazy lately and living in denim shorts, yoga pants, and tank tops. I’ve just been really uninspired, hating my clothes, or down on myself whatever the reason my outfits have been severely lacking. Going into this weekend I decided I should probably give off some better vibes so I looked around for some end-of-summer outfit inspiration.
I feel like this is turning into a Madewell fan blog, but when I saw their fall lookbook I just had to write about it. There’s so many pieces I want to add to my wardrobe. Colder weather is my all time favorite despite the fact I hate being cold. I love layers, knits, and especially a good pair of jeans.
Madewell’s fall lookbook is filled with just those things. Tons of layers, denim, and is menswear inspired. I’m usually a little hesitant to try menswear pieces because I just don’t think they are super flattering to my body. That being said these seem to have very feminine dimensions to them.
