Fall.. oh how I’ve missed you

Fall.. oh how I’ve missed you

Hi pretties,

Welcome welcome to a fashion post back on a Tuesday as it is supposed to be, which can only mean one thing.. I have finally finished my summer classes so life can now go on full of happiness and unicorns! I don’t even know what to do with myself for the next two weeks without homework but I think actually getting blogposts up on time is a good start. 🙂 Maybe I will start pogostick-ing or finish a book or something, who really knows.

Back on track, Ciera. Bring it back.

If you read my title you are now fully aware that I am trying to scoot summer along to the end and force fall upon all of you. You don’t have to accept it, but whether you want it to or not, it is coming in full force gosh dangit. Fall is by far my favorite season to dress for because I prefer a good pair of jeans to some shorts any day of the week. And before you go assuming that it is because I have to shave my legs less or something, just know you are wrong.. it is solely because I don’t have to tan my legs as often. VERY DIFFERENT.

Even though fall is about a month and a half away, it is still warm out (just giving you this update in case you haven’t left the house for a couple weeks or something) So in this interim weather it is very difficult to decide what kind of shopping should be done.. do you buy summer clothes and only wear them once before it becomes prickly leg season or stock up on fall essentials and die of heat exhaustion in your chunky scarves??

The correct answer is to buy the transition pieces that will take you from summer to fall. If you see a cute dress you MUST have, buy that baby, wear it twice, and then pair it with a jean jacket come fall. Or maybe you buy a suede jacket for fall and decide to pair it with some cutoffs and wedges for a summer night out. There are no problems, only solutions, PEOPLE!

So in this special edition of a fashion post by me, I am going to show you some summer and fall attire that can be mixed and matched until the snow starts to fall. Style them up or down until mid-October and then you can feel free to make that full transition into wearing 7 parkas as an outfit. Okay, here’s the goods. 🙂

Welp, hooray for fall rolling in slowly but surely. Get that wardrobe going now before it is too late.

Wednesday Favorites.. on a Thursday :)

Wednesday Favorites.. on a Thursday :)

Hiya,

So you know me, always one day behind and probably a few screws loose, but I would never ever forget to bring you a favorites typa post. They’ve always got me feelin some type of way.. There just really is something magical about the three things each week that I really like, being posted here to you in about 300 words. Just kidding, it’s not that magical, but it sure is helpful when you’re on the lookout for that good good, and I am presenting it here for you now.

Lately I have developed my mother’s tendencies and spend most of my days, ordering and then returning. And on the days I am not doing that, I am buying in person and then driving back to the mall a day later to return it (I can’t have returns sit in my room for more than a weekend.. CLUTTER. EVERYWHERE) And although I am a regular at the mall and have that express checkout down on all of my favorite websites, I would love to no longer be a serial buyer/returner. A girl can dream ya know.. Buuuuut it comes with the territory because I like lots of stuff and guess and check is the only method to my madness.

Now that I am kinda getting the hang of this shopping to clothe and beautify a village thing though, I am starting to learn just what I need and exactly what you all like. So here are Ciera’s picks of the week for your enjoyment.

UNO – The Charlotte Tilbury glow palette is creamy pressed powder shtuff for your face that goes on like a dream. TBH I bought it during the Nsale, so it was more than half off and without the discount you may have to sell a few buckets of plasma, but I would say worth it. It has bronzer, highlight, blush, and setting powder all in the same palette!

DOS – Even just saying that I use the ‘Anastasia Beverly Hills’ eyebrow gel and liner makes me feel cooler than it should. This set blends super well and doesn’t get clumpy as you apply. Coming from a girl with non-existent half eyebrows, this gets two thumbs up.

TRES – OUAI thinning hair supplements have been the holy grail gift from God over on this front. I wear my hair in buns 90% of the time, and my hair was just not a fan of those decisions so it decided to dip out on me. These supplements are helping my hair return to its former glory.

Welp, peace out party people.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

Hey boo boos,

Hope all is well with you beautiful people and life is trucking along as great as it can be in the heat of summer and beginning of school. Somehow I kinda thought that small children starting school would mean less traffic and more sleeping, but I sat at a light for 7 minutes this morning and was also up by 6.. but who am I to complain?! The thing is about the end of summer is bright colors and fun stripes start to come to an end, so we might as well wear ’em while we still can.

I would never ever want any of you to miss out on the joy that is rainbow stripes… and a trip to the harshly-lit mall to spend a couple minutes touching a lot of candy to then have to buy it.. because germs ya know. But really you could skip out on the candy store (why would you want to though?) and suit up in the brightest, wildest patterns you can  imagine to finish out summer with a bang. I’m talkin some candy stripes, green palms, and big ol stars.

And before any of you avid readers say that you just can’t pull off the ca-razyyyy patterns.. go look at yourself in the mirror, tell yourself you are the cutest gumdrop button you have ever seen, be a brave soul, and throw on some damn pattern. As long as you are wearing it well and not mixing to your 4-year-old self’s standards, everything should be a okay. This is also the perfect time to branch out with your wardrobe.. summer ends in about a month and a half, so that gives you about 44 days to liven it up sister friend. And here I am providing you with a whole lot of cuteness to strut your stiff in until September 21st. 🙂

So show everyone you know that blackest-black isn’t the only pattern and color combination you know, and get to struttin.
