Pattern Mixing / Life Update

I suppose I should start with the life update because that's why you're all here, right? If only I could portray my sarcasm on the internet.

Statement Blazer, Velvet Dress

It's really strange but I feel like my entire life did a 180 last week. I went from feeling so sad and overwhelmed (for 5+ months) to so excited about life. The past few months haven't been easy for me so I'm really glad things seem to be turning around. So, in honor of feeling happy and looking forward - I wore a bolder outfit to celebrate. 

How to: the oversized boyfriend shirt.

As a really petite person I try and stay away from oversized items. Maxi skirts/dresses, oversized sweaters, etc all tend to swallow me up. But I found this oversized pinstriped shirt from a yardsale for 50c. and for some reason I felt compelled to try it out. It was actually labeled a large but I decided to go for it because it didn't look too long for me.

 I believe this shirt is a women's shirt but it reminded me of all the posts and trends going around about wearing your boyfriend's clothes (which I don't have) so here is my take on it!

Striped Sweater, Burgundy Skirt

I've been trying to make a point of going on walks everyday and I happened upon this nature trail near my house. I'm really happy I found this trail and I'm excited to keep photographing here for upcoming blog posts! I'm pretty happy with how these photos turned out. 

Anyways - the outfit.  

Vintage Orange and Navy

I think Fall is finally here in the south and I am so excited. I forgot how great it feels to spend time outside and not melt! What a novel idea huh? While it wasn't cold enough to wear tights I did decide it was time to break out a sweater or two and prepare for the colder months ahead. But I feel like this outfit is very appropriate for October - especially considering halloween is just around the corner!

Casual Sunday Outfit

I love getting ready in the morning. Obviously, as a fashion blogger it's one of my favorite parts of my day. I love coming up with different outfit ideas and seeing them come together. But sometimes - I love putting on a good comfortable shirt, skinny jeans, and some sneakers. It's one of the things I feel most comfortable in - the most 'me' outfit if you will. And Sunday's are normally my comfy outfit days - so I thought I'd show you!

Camel Cardigan

I have never been into brown that much until recently. Camel is becoming huge this season and now I think I understand why. I seem to be reaching for it a lot more - plus I've got a couple of brown loafers that I love to pull out when it hits fall time. 

Vintage Skirt, Denim Shirt

It is sadly still not as chilly as I'd like to be in the South. I can still get by wearing a skirt without tights and I hardly needed this denim button up as a jacket. I'm getting pretty tired of it. But alas, here is one of my favorite outfits for fall featuring my most beloved vintage skirt. 

Top Three Budget Fall Nail Polishes

I've been meaning to do more beauty posts on my blog but for some reason they always take a backseat to outfit posts and videos. I guess it's because I don't have a huge beauty collection or anything like that. However, I do love a good bit of nail polish. So, today I thought I'd talk to you about my top fall nail polishes!

Windowpane Printed Shirt

It's no secret that I am obsessed with the Windowpane print that is so popular right now. I showcased a dress I picked up recently last week and now I'm back with an adorable shirt version! (I am obsessed OKAY?)

Flared Jeans

I never in a million years thought I'd look good in flared jeans. Never. I remember wearing them when I was younger (middle school days~) but those were really the only option for jeans when I was that age. But the thought of getting a pair now? Definitely not. But I found these Madewell jeans at one of my favorite thrift stores last month NEW WITH TAGS and I had to try them on. 

How to: Florals for Fall

 In case you didn't know - I'm from the East Coast in the United States. And because of some very serious hurricanes coming through It's been raining here every single day for the past week! Today was the first time I've been able to take outfit posts for this week! And the weather hasn't even been that great for taking photos - overcast. A photographers worst nightmare. Ahh so behind! But anyways - the outfit. 

Floral isn't really a print people associate with Autumn/Winter. But I love wearing florals all year round. Some of my favorite prints are ones with black undertones, which I think go perfectly for fall. They aren't too bright but they still appeal to my floral needs in my wardrobe.
