Fall 2014 | Mood Board

It is officially Autumn. The leaves are finally starting to change colors and are falling to the ground covering the roads in the most beautiful shades of yellow and orange. I always forget how much I love this season. I feel this overwhelming gratitude because I get yet another chance to experience creation, beauty, friendship and joy. It is a new season which means yet another fresh start, another clean slate, another opportunity to be. With a new season also comes a new mood board. I’ve found myself drawn to dark colors even more than normal, and by dark colors I mean black and gray with pops of army green and maroon. Here are the styles and stuff inspiring my fashion choices this season.

STOP

…In the name of love! …It’s hammer time!

Every time I wear this shirt at least one person asks me what the STOP stands for. I have no idea, I just wear it cause it’s comfy and I like the bright yellow lettering. I had a really short day so I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable (as always). I threw this fab muscle tee over my favorite leggings, which I’ve owned since college. The navy blue deconstructed blazer is a recent purchase from H&M (it was on clearance for $10). I like that the majority of it is flowy while the shoulder seams and the arms aren’t boxy or too oversized.

#MonthlyMani | Autumnal Hues

The Autumn season is associated with burnt orange and other festive yellow shades mainly, I think, because of the leaves and overall crispness in the air. However, when I think of Autumnal hues I’m drawn to darker versions of my summer favorites like dark greens, navy and dark reds.

The color I chose for this months #MonthlyMani link up is a deep purple which I used to create a v shaped half-moon mani. I finished the look off by applying a matte top coat both to help the polish last longer and to create a fun, non-shiny texture. It’s a bit messy and uneven because I didn’t use tape to make the v but I really like that it looks diy.

Floral Jumpsuit Obsessed

When I bought this floral print jumpsuit I had hoped I would have the courage to actually wear it more than once and now I find myself wanting to wear it every chance I can get. Jumpsuits are surprisingly easy to where (ya I know, DUH) after you get used to how they fit. Here I threw a slightly cropped jersey like tee over it and pulled my hair into a low pony which, for some reason, made me think of JLo hence the gold hoop earrings. Yes, I wear these sandals like in every post, I promise I tried so many other pairs of shoes but nothing else felt as effortless.
