Guess what!! Today’s post is my 100th one to hit the blog! That is truly so so wild to me. I have almost had the blog up and running for a year now too, which is even crazier if you ask me! I was thinking I was going to go big for my 100th post, but them realized that my 1 year post would be shortly behind it, so I figured that the November 7th post will be a big ol celebration instead.. like with cake and balloons or something.. that you will have to buy for yourself and eat in the comfort of your own home. Sounds fun, right?
I kinda really wanted to do the thing you do in elementary school for your 100th day of school and dress up as 100 year-old geezers, but my nursing home outfit is in the wash.. So since today is like any other day, I have a fashion post right here for ya filled with a super cute trend this season. Drumroll please…. that trend is checkers, gingham, black and white boxes things. Whatever you wanna call it, I’ll roll with it.
Fall patterns are my favoriteeeee compared to any other season. I bet you never really thought about it, but there are certain popular patterns depending on the season, and leave-falling season is no different. In winter you’ll see snowflakes & stars, spring is florals & stripes, summer goes to palm leaves and polka dots, and fall brings us to checkers & leopard. So now that you have that little tidbit of knowledge (don’t ever say I never taught you anything) and you already know that I love leopard more than anyone ever should, let’s chat about why those teeny tiny squares are so chic right about now.
So gingham makes you look like you’re having a 60’s disco party, but still like you know what fashion is. The pattern is fun, can be dressed up or down, looks cute mixed with other patterns (ESPECIALLY LEOPARD), and it’s something that only the brave truly embrace. Also, if you go for the black & white vibe, it kinda makes you look like an old man out golfing with his mates, but in a good way??
Needless to say, check check check it out. 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday and much love to you all. <3
Happy Thursday! I am so sorry I have been M.I.A the past two weeks (yes, it’s been that long). It was midterms week last week and time got away from me. On weeks like the last it seems like the only time I actually get without having anything to do should be used for sleeping so I don’t die a slow death from exhaustion. But don’t you worry, shnookums, I am back at it and will have loads of fall/winter content coming your way. Also just a fun fact for you, I have not been to the pumpkin patch even once this year, so I will be formally filing complaints to anyone and everyone who will listen. 🙂
K, back on track now. I have had a very bad habit of late night shopping lately.. like I’ve woken up to order confirmations that I don’t remember placing. I am not complaining because clearly my half-asleep subconscious has very good taste; however, my half-asleep subconscious is not as great with the monetary side of things. I’m swimming in money in my dreams, trust me.
But the weirdest part is that my sleep-shopping is even trendier than my normal shopping. Like somehow everything that I decide in the daylight hours that would never work for me, magically works out in my head past 10 pm. Anyway, the point of this rant is that I actually ended up with a super cute blazer that I never once thought I needed. With that being said, it was real dang cute and now I think you should all get real drowsy and buy your own. 🙂

SHOP THE POST
Blazers are normally relegated to workwear attire, but I am here to tell you that they can be worn any way you please honeyyyyyy. Wear em with shorts, jeans, heels, booties, workout pants (okay, not workout pants.. I got ahead of myself), crop tops, your hair up, red lipstick.. I don’t know, anything?! and they will look so dang cute. A blazer is pretty much like the perfect chic, sassy addition to any outfit right about now. Check out some of my favorites here!
So with all of that being said, I am going to go take a nap and probably spend my life savings during the process. Talk soon.
I was going to say happy Wednesday, but I don’t think it’s Wednesday and I am now realizing that I am not really sure what day it is at all.. don’t worry, I will figure it out. Anyway, I have been getting requests lately for specific blogposts, and I am here to tell you to keep them coming. My brain goes dark at times and legit chooses to replay Hannah Montana songs instead of processing actual information and thinking of new ideas. So with that being said, if there is ever a product you want to try but want someone else to do it first, have a new workout that looks terribly terrifying but kinda cool, or a specific look or item that you are searching for, send it my way and I will do the heavy lifting for you. 🙂 that is literally what my blog is here for.. helping you and I live our lives just a little bit better, and with a lotta bit better of a wardrobe.
Here we go on the real post though, which per your request, I am going to be rounding up the cutest fall/winter boots and booties that will complete your closet and maybe even your life. Really I am not sure if they will be that life-changing, but a girl can dream.
For me, this time of year brings its own specific subset of challenges, and they all seem to boil down to my shoe choices. As a girl who wears running shoes, Birkenstocks, and Vans 99.7% of the time, I sure do have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that canvas shoes are not snow boots no matter how hard I try.. But I am a quick learner, so I know after the first rainstorm that it is probably time to move onto some new footwear and hang up my Birks to dry for the winter.
The good news about boots & booties is that not only do they look so much cuter than other shoes with fall outfits, they are also the perfect disguise to hide 2 pairs of fuzzy Christmas socks and a ratchet pedicure that should have been filled months ago. The main thing I am trying to get at here, is that you should really get yourself a good pair of boots or two to survive the cold. I would suggest some neutrals, but I have never been one to turn down a statement shoe, so you do you boo. Here are the ones I like, and I hope you like them too. 🙂
Also exciting news regarding styling and personal shopping coming next week, so be on the lookout. Have the best day, whatever day it is friends. <3
