Sweater Weather

Fashion

You guys….it’s happening. It’s cold Enough to wear sweaters!!!! I live for this time of the year. Temperatures are finally dropping, leaves are changing colors and the air smells like snow (yes, I can smell snow haha). I know I have mentioned before how much I love fall and my love for it continues to grow! Layers, boots, scarves and hot chocolate….count me in! Now I don’t know if I have every said how weird the weather is here in Wyoming, but let me tell you, its crazy. It usually starts snowing in October (it already has twice) but it won’t stick until about late November/ early December. The temperature does drop significantly and quickly. However, the temperature is highly inconsistent. One day it’ll be warm and sunny and the next day it’ll be as if we went into the next ice age. After growing up here I am at least a little prepared for the abnormal changes, so much so that once it is officially fall, I dress for fall. I don’t care what the weather is. I will wear boots, skinny jeans and sweaters. Luck for me I’m cold no matter what the weather, so it all works out in the end!

Along with my almost obsessive need to wear sweaters everyday, I also stick to a very basic color theme. I go for mostly blush pink, cream/white, grey, black, navy or olive. With that I will also go days in a row of wearing black on black on black on black. I love it. As I was preparing my closet for the new flow of knitted heaven, I picked out a few of my favorites so far!

It was hard to pick my top five sweaters but I finally narrowed them down. The top two are from TJMaxx and the other 3 are from H&M. I wear these five almost religiously but I am still on the hunt for an oversized chunky sweater. I’m going to keep a look out for baggy ones as the weather starts getting colder.

If you guys have any favorites please share them down below!!!

Current Fashion Obsessions

Fashion, lifestyle

It’s September…which means one of my favorite season is right around the corner….AUTUMN!!!!! I absolutely love Autumn. The leaves change colors, it gets colder and layers are back in style! I am still in the process of collection more sweaters and flannels but as of right now I have two items that I have been loving. I bought both of these at TJ Maxx (one of my favorite places to shop).

The first item is a jean jacket. The brand is Ci Sono and it was $19.99. I have always loved jean jackets but I could never find one that I was super in love with. When I found this one, I just loved how it fit and how distressed it was. It’s very my style and although it is fitted, I can still layer it with a flannel or T-Shirt underneath. I have not jumped on the denim on denim train just yet but maybe someday I’ll get there.

Second is these sliders. They are the brand Qupid. I got them on sale for $7.99 and I believe that they are one of the best purchase I’ve ever made. All of my shoes are either booties or some form of a sneaker, so to have a shoe that I can just slide on when I’m leaving the house or put on to match a super casual outfit, makes me so happy. They are super comfortable. They don’t hurt my feet after wearing them all day. I absolutely LOVE that they have faux fur on them. The fact that the fur is maroon, white and black means that they match just about everything I own.

I love stores like TJ Maxx because they have super cute designer brands for half the price! It is a great place to shop if you’re on a budget or if you’re going back to school shopping! I can find clothes, pillows, pots & pans and pretty much anything else I need in life, all in one store!!! I can’t wait to show you guys all the other things I will be wearing this fall!! Comment and let me know some of your favorite fall trends or any trend you’ve been loving recently!!!

January Favorites

I know that it is the middle of February, but I still had some favorites in January! This past month I had a variety of favorite things and I want to share some of them with you! I hope you enjoy!!

The first thing I have been obsessed with in January is this HUGE pink blanket scarf. I love this scarf so much because 1) it is a pink ombre, 2) it is the softest thing I have ever felt in my life! and 3) it is GIANT. I got this at H&M on sale. It has kept me extremely warm in the freezing temperatures. I adore it.

My second favorite in the month of January is Anna Kendrick’s book. I absolutely love her as a person and an actress and this book has made me love her even more. I enjoy reading these types of book because I like getting a look at their actual lives. I like learning what made them want to get into the acting industry. They always give great advice that is applicable to everyones life!

I love my aviators. I got these at TJ Maxx and they are Tommy Hilfiger. I just think they are super cute and they go with pretty much anything.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetI have a few makeup products that I gave a little extra love this past month. This adorable makeup bag was given to me for Christmas by one of my friends. It is rose gold (which everyone knows I am OBSESSED with) and it is the perfect travel size! The fist product that I reached for everyday was my Rimmel Match Perfection concealer in the shade 230 Fair/Light. This concealer is super light weight but has great coverage. In the summer I sometimes only wear this because it blends really well into my skin. The next thing I was loving is the Covergirl + Olay “The De-Puffer” under eye concealer. I get this in the shade 320 Fair/Light. This product is amazing. It covers the dark bags under my eyes and makes me look like an actual human being. It has a metal applicator which feels great under your eyes in the morning when I feel less than alive. Next is the mini Smashbox X-rated mascara. I usually use multiple mascaras to get extra volume but after using just a few coats of this, my lashes are looking long and full. And last we have the L’oreal Voluminous Superstar liquid eyeliner. I have been using this eyeliner FOREVER!!!! It is by far my favorite liquid mascara. It has a nice felt tip that makes application easier and more precise. It does smudge a little during the day (but I have weirdly oily eyelids…), but if I do a wing it stays all day.

This next one is very random but it also makes me so happy! I got a new sticker for my laptop that says “Say no to drugs & say yes to pizza”. I found this sticker at Zumiez and I think it was about $3. I saw it and it just made me so happy so I had to buy it. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it when I bring my laptop to class, which makes it even better!

I love hearing what you guys love every month so feel free to share!!!! I hope you enjoy seeing what I am into each month and I hope to continue these posts! Let me know what you think!

xoxo!!!!

 

Coffee Table Books

I love seeing what books people like to keep around their house. It helps me get inspiration into how I want my home to look, as well as, allowing me to understand that person better. These are the three books I currently have on my coffee table (amongst the piles and piles of magazines I have laying around my apartment haha).

The Fashion Book- Phaidon:

This book is like my bible. It is the A-Z guide of all things fashion. This book shows every person who created and inspired the fashion world. This book spans over two centuries with the whole industry represented. This book is a guide to over 570 clothing and accessory designers, photographers, stylists, schools, models and editors. As well as, the icons who instigated or symbolize an entire style or movement. This is great for those who really want to know the fashion industry inside and out.

14,000 things to be happy about- Barbara Ann Kipfer:

I have wanted this book for such a long time. Even just skimming through the pages you find things that make you happy! Whether its watching the sunset/rise, going to the beach, watching the snow fall or things  as small as Aunt Jemima  syrup, sipping a coke or getting the answers you want from a magic 8 ball. This book is just a friendly reminder that despite anything that goes wrong in your life, there is always something to be happy about.

101 Things I Learned in Fashion School- Alfredo Cabrera with Matthew Fredrick:

My mom got this book for me. This little book is super helpful for anyone in fashion. The book starts with “Fashion was born in the 12th century” and ends with a quote by Yves St. Laurent “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Throughout the book there are little tips about how to illustrate, how to tie a tie, how to cut fabric, the measurements of average models and other helpful tips!

 

Anywhere you look in my apartment you will find a book or a magazine that has to do with fashion or the industry. I love when my passions bring out a passion in others! Let me know what books you like to keep around your home!!! Like, follow, comment and share!!

xoxo!!!

What’s in my Bag?

Uncategorized
This coming up weekend I will be going on a little getaway with my boyfriend and another couple. Now I am known for over packing, so this time around I planned out all my outfits and I thought I’d share those outfits with you all. The weather is going to be hot during the day, so when we get there I might alter these ideas slightly.
In my Bag:
SMXLL

 Day 1
 The drive to Denver, check into our hotel and go out on the town. Depending on the weather, I might ditch the cardigan during the day and just go for the tank and shorts. This outfit is perfect for a quick day to night change. Just add or remove the cardigan and you are ready for anytime.
Garments:
 Forever 21 tank top, Sophie Rule cardigan, Divided by H&M black pleather shorts, & no brand black booties
SMXLL

 Day 2
This is that day that all four of us have been waiting for. July 31st. Vans Warped Tour. We have been waiting all summer for this music festival! Ready by 8-8:30, go out to breakfast, & party hard all day long.
Garments:
The Story So Far band t-shirt (turned into a cropped tank top DIY style & bought at Hot Topic), Thrift store high waisted jeans (also turned into shorts DIY style), American Eagle braided belt, Vans Classic shoes (very old and very worn, but the perfect shoes for the occasion)
SMXLL

Day 3
On the third day we don’t have a real plan set. We check out in the morning and then have all day to do whatever we want. We threw around ideas and we might just walk around town some more, we could go to the Denver Zoo, or even just go see a movie. Either way this outfit can really be worn for anything. It’s cute and comfortable.
Garments:
Divided by H&M white dress, Micheal Kors purse, Divided by H&M maroon hat, Vans Classic shoes
SMLXL

 Extra
Because I am who I am, I packed an extra outfit. This can be worn at night if it gets a little too cold for shorts. I might wear it to dinner the second night we are there.
Garments:
No brand blue tank top, Gianni Bini pants, No brand black booties
Planing out these outfits have really helped me stay on track with what I need and what I don’t. Packing in advance also helps with my indecisive mind. It allows my to fully plan out what I want to take and there is always a few days to change my mind before I leave. They are pretty basic and can be switched around anytime during the trip, which I believe helps me with my over packing problem. Bringing basic colors and pieces that you can mix&match, makes more outfits than you think and can settle an indecisive mind. All of this (plus makeup & hair things) all fit into a medium sized duffel and is super easy to travel with.
