| Fall Feeling |
September is quickly coming to an end and October is right around the corner. I know that fall officially started about a week ago, but apparently NYC didn’t get the memo. I was afraid that this fall feeling would never come since the temperatures have been so blazing hot. I have literally been counting down the days until I could finally take some of my new favorite pieces out for a spin. Well folks, the day has finally come – I am so happy to be writing about my first fall look of the year! I love this season more than the average pumpkin spice latte drinking girl should. I mean who doesn’t? The crisp cool air, the cozy sweaters, the cute little boots, and the colorful leaves…it’s my favorite. Want to know the other best part about the autumn season?
| Five to Try // Faux Fur |
Though it doesn’t quite feel like it yet in NYC (we are in the middle of a heat wave) Fall is upon us and it is time to start thinking about pulling out your coziest pieces for the cooler weather to come. And when it comes to being cozy, it doesn’t get much better than a little faux fur. This season, fuzzy accents and head to toe faux fur are definitely going to be a go-to trend. Check out a few of my “wish list” items below and let me know what you think!
It may literally and figuratively be THE HOTTEST color trend for this Fall. Flashes of this vibrant cherry color can be seen all around the fashion world right now, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. This specific red gives me all the feels. It reminds me of wearing the perfect shade of yellow – when you put it on, you can’t help but be happy. And not only does this bright hue make a statement on its own, but it also sharpens graphic patterns and livens up boring neutrals. It is such a POWER color. Whether you are rockin’ it as a bold lip or an oversized denim jacket, you are going to feel like you can do anything. I mean, who doesn’t want that?!
This year on Thanksgiving I felt as if I had a lot more to be thankful for than usual. A lot of milestones and life changing events have happened in the last year. Between graduating college, getting an amazing job, and moving out to Colorado with my other half, this year has tested me and brought me so much joy in ways that I never thought possible. The biggest life change that has happened this year was me moving away from everything I have known. Though I have been extremely busy and barely have time to stop and think about how much I miss home, I am always thinking about how much more aware I am that I am one lucky girl to have such amazing family and friends. When you are constantly around the ones you love, you sometimes lose sight of how thankful you are to have them around. You just kind of assume that they will always be there. No matter what.
Like most people, when it comes to clothes, I am on a bit of a budget. Ever since I jumped in to the real world of having to pay for bills, gas, and my own phone, I can no longer freely spend all of my money on fabulous clothes and makeup. I actually have to start saving for big kid stuff now…boo. With that said, I now try to look for pieces that I know will have a lot of versatility. I want to be able to spend money on articles of clothing the I can incorporate in to my existing wardrobe and the wardrobe I hope to have someday. A recent piece I purchased that has EXTREME versatility is this amazing moss green sweater. I was immediately drawn to it because of the unique faded color, but then it sealed the deal when I felt how amazingly soft and light it was. A piece like this is so versatile because it can be layered in almost every way possible – above other layers, below other layers, or even tied around your waist. In order to get your creative juices flowing, I created a little look book on how to wear this one sweater, four ways.
