Since the last show that I worked on ended over a week ago, I spent this past week realizing that – I am much more productive when busy. With too much time on my hands, I’ve begun exploring new hobbies (like learning the guitar), starting new projects (recreating this for under $40), and planning for some up and coming trips and holiday parties. So here is to the beginning of a fresh week, hope you have a good one! xxxooo

One of the many perks of fall is layering! It has taken me many years to master this fine art. From a light long sleeved tee with a heavy grandma sweater, opaque tights with shorts, there are many different dimensions you can take. This outfit is one of my favorite collaborations that met all temperature ranges. What are some of your favorite layering pieces? Have a great weekend! xxxooo

This week has felt like I’ve been living out of my car. With a new self-goal to be more social, I have been driving all over town in an effort to fit every event, every friend into my schedule. But with this week looking a bit freer, I hope to make more quality time to catch my breath, do some embarrassingly early Halloween decorating, and enjoy the flavors of Fall. Happy Monday! xxxooo

Trying out new trends can be a bit stressful. Every season there are new “it” items to shop for, new collaborations of outfits, and so forth. But fashion is not worth anything if its not fun. Not every trend is worth trying nor is it meant for everyone. Find what you like, what works for your body type, and what stays true to your overall style. Above are a few of my favorite Fall trends to try. As you can see, I like to stay on the darker side of the color scale during this time of year and investing in the very basics. Happy Friday! Xxxooo
