| 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?
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?!
| Weekends with Tobi |
Weekends have always been my favorite (shocker, I know) but I have fallen even more in love with them since moving to NYC. This city is always buzzing with a million things to do but it is really hard to make time and enjoy all of those things during the work week. The weekends are my time to explore New York to the fullest and I am always excited to see what adventures it has in store. I like to take on my weekends by only making about 50% of my plans…because this city has a funny way of showing you what you really wanted to do all along without actually knowing it! Since my adventures seem to be a little unpredictable, I never really know the right thing to wear. All I know is that I want to be comfortable (because NYC involves a lot of walking) and I also want to look as fabulous as possible (because every corner seems to be the perfect photo opportunity). And the real kicker is if my outfit can accomplish both of those things without breaking the bank!
That’s where Tobi comes in.

Happy Fourth of July, guys!
I hope you are all enjoying your barbecues, parades, and sparklers today. This weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year (especially since this one was EXTRA long). It is always full of fun and bursting at the seams with joy. I mean, how could you not be happy when celebrating America!? Our family spent all morning at our local parade and will be cheering on the Rockies at Coors Field tonight. I am so excited because we even get to see a firework show after the game (I have heard it is pretty spectacular). I don’t need much to make me happy on a day like today – all I ask for is a yummy hot dog and nice firework show, and that’s exactly what I’m going to get.
| Five to Try // Gingham |
Gingham. Gingham. Gingham.
You guys, it is absolutely everywhere (in stores and in my closet haha). You may have noticed yourself that this picnic-inspired print is popping up in all different colors, shapes, and sizes. I have personally been on my own gingham kick lately. While I was searching for something to wear the other day, I noticed that I now own a piece in almost every single color. I just need something in green and in purple and I will have officially completed the gingham rainbow! Not only does this fun print SCREAM summer, but it has been transformed in to pieces that could be incorporated in to anyone’s wardrobe. Go ahead and continue to read below to see some of my top picks in this pattern right now!
