Fall Boots Mood Board

Fall Boots Mood Board

Fall is in the air and I’m in the mood to break out the boots and maybe add a pair or two to my collection. I’m excited to feel the crunch of autumn leaves under the soles of my faux leather boots. I anticipate the sweater socks that accompany each pair on a crisp fall day. And more than anything I look forward to getting to tread the streets of my hometown during the annual Pumpkin Show. It’s only the Greatest Free Show (festival) on Earth! Fall means a lot of things to me, but one of the first things that comes to mind when fall is in the air is my hometown festival and all of the fun, food, and fashion that come with it. What is fall to you?

Meet the Teacher Fashion

Meet the Teacher
It may be a week away, but it is never too early to plan my outfit for Meet the Teacher/Orientation night at my school. I’ve been playing around with color schemes and I think I will try pulling off the colors and pieces pictured above. Lately, I’ve been drawn to neutral clothing paired with colorful accessories and cosmetics. I recently purchased a little black dress at Francesca’s during a clearance sale. My new LBD is very similar  to the one pictured above and since Polyvore doesn’t have my exact dress and shoes I thought I could still give you a visual of my planned outfit using similar pieces.
I also recently chopped off most of my hair in the back. I was looking for something new and to be honest my hair was at an awkward length. It was too short to pin into a ponytail and too long that it was often getting stuck in collars or the tops of my shirts. So I finally went out on a limb and I had my amazing hairdresser take off most of the length in the back. I really love it and it will be a great Back-to-School style for me.

I love the act of pairing up my clothing and accessories to create a complete look. Better yet, I enjoy when I can coordinate my style to match nail color and makeup. A little black dress really is a staple in every female closet. A dress like this can be worn in so many different ways based on the accessories. And as always, REMEMBER: a smile is the best accessory one can wear!
What piece is a staple in your wardrobe?
