OOTD: Autumnal Florals

According to half a dozen fashion articles I've read, we're taking the ever-so-popular floral trend into fall this year, so you can imagine my excitement over this. Because with a little bit of layering, I'm ready to take a good portion of my summer wardrobe into this next season! 

For example, this gorgeous top from Dresslily (get it HERE). This is my first time working with Dresslily, but based on what I've received from them, I'd say they're a decent site. This tunic arrived in good condition and no threads have started fraying (as is common with clothes from these type of sites). In fact, it seems rather nicely made! I'd compare it to Forever 21 type clothing, with reasonable prices, so-so quality, but trendy and cute items. An easy fix for the fashionista looking to expand their wardrobe without draining her/his bank account!

This floral print meshed with crochet and earthy coloring made it an easy piece to style. The cut outs of crochet add a fun interest, while the darker tones mesh well with fall layers. Paired with a slip dress underneath, tall boots, and my favorite cape jacket (see it worn HERE and HERE), it made for a beautiful fall-themed outfit that received a lot of compliments. 

I'll admit, while I'm still clinging to summer in my mind, my wardrobe is ready for fall. It's an age old love-hate dilemma between Autumn and I. On the one hand, I adore her style and the layering options that help spice up outfits. On the other, I despise the chilly weather and sniffle she gives me. 

Where do you stand on fall? Love her? Hate her? A little bit of both?

Rosegal Wishlist


When contacted to take a look at Rosegal and their selections, I felt skeptical. I'm still curious whether these items are as high quality as they appear (because we all know how those sites work!).

However, it never hurts to window shop...right? After perusing the site, I'd have to say these are the pieces that intrigue me the most. The prices are a bit more than the typical wholesale sites that carry similar items, so it makes me wonder if they're higher quality as well.

With fall on my mind, I'm all about those cozy, cute elements such as sweaters, boots, and cute dresses! What are you planning on wearing this fall?

PS: I'm testing out some new layouts on the blog, so apologies if it's a little rough around here. Let me know what you think though!

OOTD: Wrecked

 
I've discovered the necessary components to look cool: badass shoes and killer sunglasses.

Seriously, pair those accessories with anything, and you'll instantly have a touch of cool-girl edge. Even when on the inside you're a goofy dork who just wants to watch anime and be friends with cartoon characters (currently want to be BFF's with Natsu). 

I can't stop reaching for these sunglasses from Zaful. And for less than $5, it's completely worth it (get yours HERE)!
Despite the cooler weather, you can still use your favorite summer accessories year round. My collection has grown immensely, and I think it's time to weed some out. But one thing I know for sure is that these would survive. Not only do they look pretty, you can check your reflection in them (seriously, these are legit mirrors), and they do an excellent job of blocking out the sun.

I tried switching up my location for these photos, as this outfit is definitely more urban feeling. I successfully found a brick building, however it turned into an awkward game of trying to explain what I was doing as people exited the building. Yeah, see those doors I'm posing by? It was the end of the work day apparently and employees would occasionally burst through, only to find themselves face to face with a camera on a tripod and a startled girl hiding behind the door. 

Yeah. I think I'm gonna try a different location next time...

For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

OOTD: Etcetera Etcetera

I had to add a sporty twist to what could've been a chic outfit, because that's just how I roll. Albeit, I did revert to some tall shoes for this look, and they're another Just Fab pair - surprise, surprise! 

I'm pretty sure the only time I get a new pair of shoes is when I order from that company. I know there are mixed feelings about Just Fab, and I'll admit, the VIP membership can be a bitch to deal with (and I've heard it's even worse when you try to cancel). But so far, I've had no trouble with them and absolutely love every pair of shoes I've gotten from them. I'll often choose "Skip for the month" when it comes time to order, so I'm not spending $40/month on pretty shoes. However, it's never a terrible idea to treat yourself when you can afford to do so. 

While we're well on our way to fall and all of it's chilly-weather glory, we're squeezing out a few summery, hot days here in Idaho. Personally, I couldn't be happier. While my closet is in a current state of confusion, I'm soaking in as much sun as possible. 

Not to mention shielding my eyes from those bright rays with fabulous sunnies! These are another pair from Zaful, this time with a rose-gold tint. Aren't they amazing? Here's the most amazing part: they're only $3.27 on Zaful. Get yours HERE!

What are you fashion obsessions for this fall? 

Show me a sign of your favor, that those who hate me may see and be put to shame because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
Psalm 86:17
