Lately I feel like I’ve been having a fashion identity crisis (which I recently tweeted about!). I really want to add more basic staple pieces to my wardrobe and purge my closet of everything that isn’t autumnal or timelessly fashionable. I want to be able to go into my closet at a moments notice, grab any dress or any skirt / shirt combo and be able to have everything match without giving it a second thought. This means I’ve been filling my fall wardrobe with more reds, blacks, whites, blues, tans and plaids. I’ve also continued to be really attracted to any pieces with heart prints, peter pan collars, ribbon neck ties, etc. As for accessories, I’m loving any simple jewelry made out of silver or gold with the occasional statement ring, blanket scarves, oxfords and chunky heels. My favorite store has always been ModCloth and I’m addicted to browsing their new releases each day at noon so that’s where I’ve been indulging in my evolved fashion choices. What Fall trends are you looking most forward to exploring? Have you also been feeling any wardrobe burnout? (If you want to view the full set & see where you can buy any of these items, click here)
“It was one of those perfect autumn days so common in stories and so rare in the real world.” – Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
Yesterday just so happened to be one of those perfect autumn days <3 My love Andrew and I spent our Saturday strolling through Central Park, Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice lattes in hand, admiring the incredible beauty of nature. The changing colors of the leaves were so bold and the sun was shining so brightly against a brilliant sky that it felt like we were in a painting. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons of the year for so many reasons. First and foremost, it’s one step closer to Christmas season, but I also love breaking out my boots, scarves, sweaters and leather jackets, switching over to hot teas and lattes and seasonal flavored desserts, purchasing new office supplies and pretending that I’m going back to school shopping, and of course, the crisp, cool air, colorful fallen leaves, and just the general sense of excitement that autumn always tends to inspire. I mean seriously, what sounds better than donning a cozy sweater, throwing on your favorite scarf and boots, and heading to Central Park with the company of a good book and the warmth of a salted caramel mocha? Here are some of my favorite photos I took yesterday. I’m quite proud of these, especially the Bow Bridge which you may remember seeing on Doctor Who!
