Final 13

Here is a compilation of the last 13 photos on my camera roll for the month of October!

One thing I love about living in the Midwest is that there are actual pumpkin patches to go to, unlike in New Orleans where "pumpkin patches" are just pumpkins lined up on wooden pallets. It's an activity that brings me back to my childhood, and one that I still look forward to every October. I did go pretty late though, so the pumpkin patch itself was more or less a pumpkin graveyard; I'm pretty sure the little pumpkin I am holding in one of the pictures above was the only whole one left. Nevertheless, it was still a beautiful fall day and there were several other things to do such as corn mazes and a petting zoo!

I'm not a girl who gets super into sports; I can feign excitement during a game, but let's be honest here, I just like an excuse to get dressed up. While I may not live in the South, where tailgates seem turn into a fashion show for girls, I still love putting together fun and feminine outfits, like this t-shirt dress paired with a blanket scarf, to cheer on the cats! 

10 Fall Trends You Won't Want to Miss

It's finally the weekend! I don't know about y'all, but for me this week seemed to drag on forever...while I really got off easy this week when it came to school, one day I didn't even have class and all the other days besides today I didn't even have to wake up before 11 am, but this morning I did have to give a speech for my public speaking class which I have been low-key dreading all week. Only four other people ended up showing up to class though, so that made it a lot better. Nonetheless, thank goodness it's finally the weekend! 

To kick off the weekend, I'm going to share with y'all 10 fall trends you should be embracing right now! Fall is by far my favorite season when it comes to fashion; it allows for so much individualization through layering and accessories that it's impossible not to have fun with it. I've compiled a few examples of my favorite ways each trend has been styled as well as shop able links for each one; you may even want to take some time out of your weekend to add some of these trendy pieces to your wardrobe! 

1. Suede


Even though it hasn't felt like fall much at all here in Kansas, I just couldn't wait any longer to break out my fall clothes. I'm a lot more into light and bright colors so light chambray and cream paired together for the fall is definitely right now my alley. The combination looks super crisp and clean unlike many fall outfits that tend to lean towards the darker end of the spectrum. But I'm still a sucker for the gorgeous fall jewel tones, so this beautiful statement necklace I got from Red Dress Boutique a while back was the perfect touch of fall glamour for this outfit. 

Fall Fashion Guide for Men

Now let's be honest, every girl appreciates a guy who knows how to dress well. Now I'm not saying for you to get the men in your life on the latest trends such as the man bun, but hinting at ditching the dreaded cargo shorts and old t-shirts wouldn't hurt. 

My friend Nate was generous enough to share some of his fall outfits, and I have also included a list of my fall essentials for men. 

Instagram Roundup

This is a long overdue post, so I'm sorry a lot of these posts are from the summer, but hey, better late than never, right?? 

Here's a little throwback to my first blog post now that it's finally starting to feel like fall! 

Aztec Tassel Scarf

Yes, I am wearing yet another olive green layering piece; I wasn't kidding when I said I'm a little obsessed. I love the blush and olive color combination; it's the perfect way to make pink work in the fall. But by far my favorite part of this outfit, is how the detailing on the scarf is embraced by the top and cardigan. That's one of the simple things in life that brings me the most happiness, when you can discreetly and perfectly match your outfit.

Layers are absolutely necessary for me in the fall time when the temperature changes drastically between the time I leave my home for the day and midday. While I would much rather be sweating than freezing any day, I would still much rather have a jacket I can simply tie around my waist when it gets too warm. Layering really allows you to have a lot more fun with your outfits in the fall time, as it gives you the opportunity to mix patterns and fabrics to really create a unique outfit.
