10 Reasons to be Excited for Fall

Posted in Lifestyle
on September 20, 2017

Calling all my pumpkin-spice-loving blogger friends who are just as excited for OUR season as I am.

*casually shrieks*

You all know my love for fall is real, and I know that I’m not the only one out there who loves this time of year. The change in season IS on it’s way, and I’m going to tell you why I’m here for it. If you’re looking to bask in the glory of a beautiful time of year and bring a little bliss to your life, keep reading!

1| ALL THE COLORS

Leaves are bursting with color, which means that you take all the best blogging photos and Instagram photos by using apples, leaves, pumpkins, Starbucks cups and other cute props you can only use during fall. P.S. who doesn’t love taking photos when the leaves change color. It’s basically the number one bucket list item for fall.

2| The BEST Instagram theme

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than everyone’s Instagram theme in the fall. Everywhere you go is a beautiful backdrop of color (from those gorgeous trees TBH). And, you can take all the cozy, dark looking photos to perfect your theme. I’m all about those vibes on Instagram during fall.

3| Pumpkin overload

Pumpkin spice lattes. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin bisque. If it’s a food, you can add some pumpkin to it in some way shape or form this season and make it even better #amiright?! I’m hoping to work on my cooking and baking skills all season long, so please send some recipes my way!

4| Those awesome bucket lists

You know what I’m talking about. You write down your fall bucket lists that consists of everything you NEED to do this season: apple picking, perfecting your pumpkin pie recipe, go to a fall festival, make a baller Halloween costume, watch Hocus Pocus an absurd amount of times, Buy $100 worth of fall Bath & Body Works candles. You know, the usual list.

5| CoZy ViBeS

Fall is a prime time of the year for Hygge, which I’m going to appreciate and spend a lot of time focusing on this season. If you’re all about candles, blankets, books, and good food with good friends, you’ll love the concept of hygge. P.S. what books have you been loving lately? Leave a comment below so I can have some new things to read!

6| Fall style

We all agree that fall style is the best style, right? Because I don’t know about you, but I love that I can basically rotate between the same five sweaters and five pairs of leggings all season long and it’s appropriate. P.S. the layers of cardigans, scarves, and cute booties are must-haves when fall rolls around.

7| THE BEST FOOD

Soups, stews, and all the crockpot meals for days. The main reason I love the food during fall is because crockpots are so darn easy to use that it’s impossible to mess up. So, it seems like I’m #adulting and #wifematerial when really I’m just dumping everything in my crockpot and turing in on low for 8 hours. It’s a win-win scenario for everyone.

8| Halloween

I’ve never been a person who would get dressed up for Halloween and hit up several parties where I need four different costumes, but that doesn’t mean I don’t celebrate the day. We don’t get any trick-or-treaters where we live, but we typically relax at home, have a not-so-healthy meal, and enjoy tons of Halloween movies.

9| Thanksgiving

Although I’m pretty much in full-blown Christmas mode by Thanksgiving, it’s in the fall season. Going back to food because #priorities, Thanksgiving is one of the best days of the year because you can eat everything and anything and no one criticizes you. I’m trying to make everyday Thanksgiving because all I want is to eat mounds of food without judgement, but I guess it’s only reserved for this one holiday.

10| So. Close. To. Christmas

Need I say more?

So tell me, what do you love most about fall? What’s on your fall bucket list that you’re most excited about? Be sure to share in the comments below!

5 Looks I’m Lusting For: September

Posted in Fashion
on September 13, 2017

Is sweater weather really the best kind of weather? The answer is yes. Always yes to sweater weather.

I don’t know about you, but I am pumped for fall and all the cozy things in life. I’m ready for Bath and Body Works candles, the change in weather, sweaters, fall bucket lists (even though I don’t always get to do everything I want to on those lists). And, above all else, I’m ready for fall fashion, which is why I’m sharing five looks that are getting me so excited for the new season.

This sweater is what Autumn dreams are made of. I am on the hunt and I’m determined to find a long, open-front cardigan and I plan to wear every single day throughout the season. If you have any links from similar sweaters you own and love, PLEASE leave them in the comments below. My favorite thing about this type of cardigan is that it looks like a blanket, but you also look so dressed up!

Okay, I know we just got done talking about adorable, perfect sweaters, but hear me out on this one. I’m also loving how this looks so darn cute but she’s wearing a sweater, leggings and cute shoes. To be honest, I think it’s all about the neutrals. Nude is a color I’m lusting to own more of in my closet because I think it’s chic, classic and extremely versatile. If you have seen any nude sweaters, tops, etc., please share those with me as well!

I promise I’m not going to talk about the sweater because it’s evident that I’m in love with long, open-front cardigans and that isn’t going to end any time soon. So let’s move on to those adorable shoes. I’ve been loving loafers and masculine-style flats for fall. I’m sick of buying flats that are destroyed after a year because I wear them too much. I need shoes with a thick, durable sole and that will last with miles of walking. Make sure to send your recommendations my way!

You know those sweaters that you can wear with anything and everything? I feel like this sweater has tons of potential for versatility. I would love it casually with leggings or jeans, but I also feel like you can tuck it in to a skirt since it’s a thinner material. P.S. This is one of my favorite colors to wear during fall and winter. I never been an orange or red type of girl, so this is the perfect warm-tone color to get a small mix of both colors in there.

I always told myself that when I was older, I would wear cute heels all the time. Now, I’m more practical and I want shoes that are comfortable. But, I LOVE these shoes and how this entire look is pulled together with different shades of nude. I also love the sweater draped over the blouse. I’ve been only trying to achieve this exact look for years now, so if anyone has any tips on how to look cute and pull off this layered look, please let me know! P.S. that clutch is adorable and inspires me to carry less things so I can carry cute clutches, #amiright?

5 Minimalist Outfits for Autumn

Posted in Fashion
on October 17, 2016

Minimalism is something I’m learning and incorporating more into my every day life. So far, I’ve been loving every minute of it. I feel less stressed, more focused, and happier with adopting some of the minimalist habits.

One area I’ve been focusing on the last few months is my style. Last month, I shared my September edition of “5 Looks I’m Lusting For,” which featured more neutral-only and neutral-based looks. If you knew me five years ago, I was obsessed with bright colors. There was actually a period in time where I didn’t own any black. (I was young and stupid, don’t judge—haha!) Flash forward to present day, and more than 60 percent of my wardrobe contains neutrals.

I want to share my progression of style, and where I see my style going in the future with this minimalist mindset. So, I’m sharing five minimalist outfits you can wear for Autumn! I hope you find a little inspiration from these looks, and can incorporate them into your your wardrobe for the season.

Make sure to leave a comment below telling me about your personal style, and how it has evolved over the years!

There’s nothing better than bulky sweaters, cute coats, and booties for the season. Aside from all the trendy pieces, it’s chic because of the neutral colors. People think minimalists only wear black and white, but you can wear colors and still be a minimalist. As long as you find a color palette that works for you and your style, and only have essentials that you can mix with several outfits, you are on the right track!

25 Great New Outfits For Your Winter Lookbook - Style Estate -Everything about this look is #FALLFASHIONGOALS. I’m not going to lie, everything about this makes me fall in love with the idea of dressing minimally. I love an all-black outfit with the addition of the contrasting color to make things pop. In this case, the light, nude heels and coat paired together makes the entire outfit more vibrant yet classic. 739c48c51e76887fd2e9d12192349068I love to throw in a wildcard option that’s out of my comfort zone. As a working woman, I don’t think I could ever pull off a dressy element like a midi skirt and pair it with casual sneakers like the photos above. But, never say never. I love this look, and I like that there’s a contrast from professional and comfortable mixed together. Who knows, maybe I’ll rock some sneakers with a skirt for this season.8fcf2e39aae7e67b381c2b89fd39cb38“Doe she only like camel-colored coats?!” No, definitely not. But I will say I think they’re an amazing color to pull off during Autumn, so I might as well show you some options while you’re reading through this post. Again, an all-black outfit for the base of the outfit paired with another neutral like camel makes the outfit pop! I’m definitely in the market for a camel coat after writing this post.

8ff10ff2d6fc564e5e109cd4cc7bfdf9This is a perfect example that you don’t need to only wear black and white to have a minimal outfit. Adding little pops of color and patterns can pull the entire look together. I love the addition of a burgundy bag with these fun, leopard flats. This adds a little excitement to a simple, comfortable look. I’ve been on the hunt for leopard flats, and hoping I can find some as cute as these above!

5 Looks I’m Lusting For: September

Posted in Fashion
on September 21, 2016

bb9916_5 Looks I'm Lusting ForAnother month underway means another month of sharing new looks I’m lusting for. I will say that ever since I cleared out my wardrobe this year, I’ve noticed my style has changed for the better. Before, I had no set of adjectives that described the style I wanted to portray. Now, I know my style consists of casual chic pieces that will never go out of style. My wardrobe is more centered around neutral hues like black, white, gray, tan, and creams with a mix of cooler tones like blues, purples, etc.

With this month’s “5 Looks I’m Lusting For,” I hope to show more photos that will reflect the style I’m moving toward at this stage of my life.

Everything about this outfit is #FallGoals. I love the mix of the light tan cardigan, booties and hat against the soft white top, paired with denim. This look is a staple if you’re running errands, grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend, or spending the day shopping. I love versatile outfits like this for fall that are neutral, simple but you look put together.

Emily is a bomb blogger for anything and everything related to fall-fashion inspiration. I love the cozy, casual yet chic looks she posts on her blog. I’m all about leggings for fall, so any opportunity I can wear them is essential for a go-to comfortable look. I love pairing gray and black together because it gives off a minimal vibe.

I’m definitely into denim this fall because I love the different styles that are popping up in the fashion space for this season. I love the look of relaxed, slightly distressed denim for fall. I’m also loving the trend of long, knee-length cardigans for fall, which you can see more of in my fall fashion wish list here. Of course, you can never go wrong with a bulky scarf.

Black and white with a pop of nude—what more could you ask for? The goal I want to achieve with my outfits for fall is a mix of comfortable clothing, but I still look like I have my life together. Emily does that with every single outfit on her blog. Personally, I’m loving the big, comfy sweaters that are like walking around with a blanket on you for the day.

I always post an outfit that’s out of my comfort zone in terms of style or trends. The edgy vibe doesn’t suit my personality, but I’m always open to trying different things. For Nichole, this look suits her perfectly. I’m hoping to branch out a little more with the trends and style I have in my wardrobe like these edgy boots and tops with cut-outs in them.

Long, Open-Front Cardigan: $25

I’ve been going through my closet, and I need more gray sweaters in my life. I’ve noticed that long, open-front cardigans have been everywhere on Pinterest and Instagram for fall. You know I’m going to jump on this trend because I love cozy and comfortable looks.

Tipped Bow Blouse: $49.50

I’ve been loving simple, clean-cut blouses that are perfect for any time of year. This cream blouse looks perfectly tailored. I’m hoping to invest in basic blouses like this one that are good quality because they will last a long time.

Crown Vintage Pilot Over-The-Knee Boots: $79.95

I don’t know why I haven’t jumped on the over-the-knee boot trend, but this is one of the top items on my current wish list. I’m all about wearing boots from September to March, so I’m hoping to add a pair in my shoe collection as soon as possible. I’m in love with these black suede

Striped Poncho Sweater: $79.50

It wouldn’t be a fall-inspired wish list without a sweater. I love that this sweater from Loft is a mix of a standard sweater with a poncho-style incorporated in it as well.

Plaid Midi Shirt Dress: $34.94

You can’t go wrong with a comfortable dress that works perfect for fall and winter. That’s why I am in love with this plaid midi shirt dress from Old Navy. Also, their prices are are incredible if you’re on budget. (But let’s be real, who isn’t looking to save some money?)
