Ahh, fall is officially here! It’s the perfect weather for early morning runs- mid-60s and cool breezes- and fun fall fashion.
One of my favorite items for fall are blanket scarves (I have yet to purchase mine)! +It can be tough to find one that fits just right when you only stand roughly 5’3″ high ☺️ because some are overwhelmingly large, nugg like a blanket you snug up with on a movie night, while others are just enough textured fabric.
I came across this pretty neat blanket scarf style (left) on @pinkpineappleshop’s Instagram this morning and had to share! This shop also sells blanket scarves, so give them a look! I love the dimension and mixes of texture in this look– definitely not something you’d spot strolling down the street every day! +The blanket scarf resembles a sweater… But paired with the perfect belt, you have an easy and fresh fall look! SO FUN! I love that this is paired with mid-wash jeans and high brown boots– chic, comfy and cozy!
So let’s hear: what are some of your favorite fall fashion looks?! I’d love to see photos!
I’ve been awful with not blogging (story of my life/how I feel I start every post). None the less, I recently had the chance to catch up with a good friend who I hadn’t seen all summer. It was wonderful catching up and hearing about her road trip across America this summer! (It’s comforting knowing someone who you have such a strong friendship with that you can pick up right where you left off- nothing’s changed.)
After bfast and coffee, we stopped in one of my favorite shops, Vernacular (check out older posts w/featured clothing), and they had a pretty packed sales rack! + I’m all about finding deals! That’s what makes shopping so worth it; finding those hidden gems that don’t cost near the original ticket price!
I purchased this beyond comfy stripe French terry shift dress by Olive & Oak. I wore this to work with very neutral makeup and a dark, but subtle, maroon lipstick, with my hair in a mid-high pony- simple but put together.
What I’m most thrilled about is pairing it with black tights and brown leather boots this fall/winter! Or a fun blazer to add a bit more color to the dress. + Even more than stumbling upon stellar sale items, I love when you discover clothing you can mix/match and wear during more than one season!
I wanna hear from you: Do you have any pieces you rock during a couple seasons?! Let’s see ’em in the comments section!
Until next time, Xx
AY YO! Monday is over and it’s a short-holiday week– we love it! I’m sorry I didn’t post this last week’s FashionFriday, I caught up on life and much needed sleep (haha!)– I feel like we can all relate to that, right?!
This post is based on something that a lot of girls may not think about. Accessories. Accessories can liven up any outfit. You can go from dull to glam just by adding a few bracelets/bangles, earrings and maybe a chunky ring- whatever you like. Accessories are a girl’s best friend.
I also believe accessories can tell a story or a lot about a person, such as where he/she has been or their interests, like favorite colors, style, designs, quotes… nearly everything under the sun!
Below is one of my fav accessories photos from Alex & Ani’s Instagram. Alex & Ani is an American retailer and producer of jewelry ranging from bangles, earrings, necklaces and rings that are all individually unique (see photo). They’re really luscious to group/pair together, expressing yourself in your own unique way.
