Well friends happy friday! Wow what a week! If you don't live in Florida or near the path of Irma, consider yourself lucky! Going to school down south truly has its perks, but it also has it downsides at times as well... and this would for sure be one of those times. While only two weeks back into the school year, we are already evacuating. What timing right? Though I guess the plus side is that we wont have school for a little while :)
Anyway, with all of this downtime I have been filling my time with looking at a little fall fashion inspo. Fall is my favorite time of year hands down. Not just for the fashion, but I especially love the warm cup of coffee on a crisp afternoon, football sundays (Go Blue), and my absolute favorite is going on a run and hearing the crunch of the leaves as you run over them (please tell me I am not alone in this)! Fall fashion brings so many styles together which I absolutely love. The somewhat warm temperatures give you so many options when picking out outfits. Whether its the layering of sweaters and coats, or the the perfect pair of fall boots, fall is definitely my favorite season to shop for.
So when trying to translate this love of fall fashion to Florida, its a little difficult, as we don't really have a drastic change in temperature until December/Januaryish. My go to recently when trying to pick out outfits, has been looking to my style icon Olivia Palermo. Her style is the perfect amount of casual and chic. She pairs things together which you would never think work, but look absolutely stunning. A go to for me recently has been using light jackets as a way to accessorize. The right statement jacket pulls any outfit together. One jacket that I really have my eye on for fall is this white jacket from topshop. I think this jacket is great because you can really use it to dress up or dress down, but just by throwing it on, it looks like you tried a lot more than you did!
Below are some of my favorite outfits Oliva has worn and ones that I draw on for inspo. (click on them to view full picture.)
In addition to the fall fashion I have been obsessing over, I also have been completely consumed with trying to get my room finished. I just moved into a house this school year so trying to get a room perfect doesn't happen overnight, and that is something that I forget often! I stay up a little bit later than I should scrolling endlessly through Pinterest repining and moving to a mood board. I love looking back at the boards a few months down the road, at everything I have pinned. Its so interesting to see if you style has changed over only a few short months. I am not fully done with the room but I thought I would share some pictures of the almost finished room. (More to come when the room is fully done)
Well lovely people, if you live in Florida, stay safe and hunker down! I'm praying for you! If you are one of the lucky ones who lives in the north or who got out in time, have an awesome weekend and if you are football gal, here's to hoping your team does well on Sunday! (GO LIONS/GO BLUE)!
till next time
