Fall Feels


Pumpkin Spice Lattes, crisp air, falling leaves, and all things plaid. This is the epitome of all the fall feels. Fashion-wise fall is my favorite time of the year. I love layering pieces, shoes, scarves, and warm make up trends. Fall truly is a magical time of the year full of outdoor sporting events, apple picking, and decorated porches. And nothing says Happy Monday morning like a cup of hot coffee to-go. I cannot resist the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg. Now that October has begun I’m also in countdown mode for my hometown’s fall festival, The Pumpkin Show. A few more weeks and I’ll be out of school and indulging in the best things fall has to offer.

Bundle Up!

Bundle Up

The temperatures are dropping and fall is in full swing here in the Midwest. One staple for every Midwesterner’s wardrobe is a warm and versatile vest to bundle up in these cooler months. Last winter, in a moment of poor decision making I purchased a pink, fleece, Colombia vest. At the time I thought it was cute, but each season has its own style and as cute as my Colombia vest may have been at the time it is definitely not complimentary to the warmer shades that represent fall fashion. As I prepare to make a vest purchase I’m torn between navy or black. I wear a lot of both colors and either one would look great paired with half of my wardrobe. I’m also in the process of deciding if I want a puffy or fleece vest. So, I guess I will lean on you, my readers, for insight. If I could only buy one vest which one from the picture above would you recommend?

A Little Athletic Style

Today on my Wednesday fashion series I am focusing on athletic style. Everything I am wearing in the photograph above is from Old Navy’s athletic line. I love the way that clothing lines are capitalizing on the healthy lifestyle. They are making it much more fashionable to get fit. If I’m being honest (and maybe a little vain) sometimes the motivation I need to get out and run comes in the form of a color coordinated outfit complete with bright athletic shoes.¬†Also, I have a really hard time walking into a sports/athletic shop and passing up the opportunity to indulge in the colorful and breathable attire.

My Wednesday fashion posts are dedicated to a short, but sweet description of a style or fashion I’m enjoying. I love documenting my outfits and I hope to inspire others to find simple pieces that compliment their personal style.
