Oh Hey

Pardon my cliche fall post, but HELLO FALL! The cool weather has finally hit the south and I will admit that it feels fantastic. But not as fantastic as it felt to dig out this sweater from my closet- I bought this last spring at J. Crew and I have been dying to wear it. But I feel like people would question me if I pulled it out while the temperatures were still in the triple digits. I’ll admit- when I woke up this morning and say that it was 43 degrees, I was like, “um, no thanks, not today”, but I came around as soon as I discovered this little ensemble. Today when my college counselor asked me how I was, I practically screamed at him that I was “embracing fall”. Well. This outfit just seemed so fall-ish to me that I needed to tell someone. And I needed that person to appreciate it. So there.

Polished

For some reason, this outfit just seems really polished. And really, really preppy. Going to private school does that to a girl. AND I got my hair cut! I love getting my hair cut because it leaves it so shiny and blown-out. So let me have my hair post and please don’t judge. I’m just so darned excited.

Ooh La La

This scarf. Is my favorite thing. I know I say about half my wardrobe is my favorite thing, but there is just something about this scarf- a certain je ne sais quoi– that i just adore. Plus I bought it in Paris so it gets automatic props. Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as usual. I am still getting back in the swing of things with school/ repeating outfits and I am too embarrassed to post about repeats. I’m working on it, y’all.

P. S. I’m still looking deathly pale. Sorry ’bout that.

Love Will Not Break Your Heart, but Dismiss Your Fears

Some nights you just need to listen to Mumford and Sons. So much soul. I love this dress- It is so comfortable to wear all day! I just needed to add the scarf and a sweater to make it through school! Temperatures are arctic in my school building. Sometimes I even have to carry around a blanket. But back to the outfit- one of my favorites! Perfect go-to for a late morning.

School Days, School Days

I survived the first half of my week! But it is seriously exhausting. Now I know why old people are so tired all the time… I don’t really have anything witty to say. I used all my brain power while I was at school. Sorry y’all. I promise I will try and sleep up to become my fabulous, funny self once again (just kidding).

Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching High School Musical and Disney melted my brain. Peace out

Hot Pink

Yesterday was my last day of my internship! Sad face! But is was seriously one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I learned so much from all the fabulous women at the magazine and I’m hoping I can go back and work for them again! But enough sadness. I got to wear my favorite skirt yesterday! This skirt is SO flowy, and whenever I walk, it seriously has the prettiest flow behind me. It’s like a glorious cascade of hot pink chiffon. I am obsessed. And it’s really hard not to be happy while you are wearing that much pink.

Cute as a Button

When you don’t know what to wear, go with a button down. They go with everything, and make everything look classically chic. That plus my favorite J. Crew skirt makes for a perfect summer work outfit.

On Pointe

Yes, I have worn this dress before. But it’s seriously one of my favorite pieces of my clothing. It is such a ballerina dress with its soft pink color and circle skirt. So of course I had to have a messy bun and delicate gold accents. So girly. So romantic. So ME!

P.S. Sorry I haven’t been able to post a lot lately. I’ve been working on all the summer work I have to get done before school starts. And I applied to COLLEGE! Woo small victories.

Flashback

I put on this outfit yesterday morning and I realized that it is almost identical to what I wore in Paris when I went to France for a month last summer. I bought this scarf at this adorable little boutique in Paris and it is seriously one of my favorite pieces of clothing. It is super versatile and unique- it was the only one in the little shop!

Flowers in Your Hair

Hello everyone! It is so good to be home, but it is soo hot. Like oppressively hot. I walked outside, and the heat and humidity hit me in the face like a ton of bricks. So I needed to wear something light and breathable. Enter: this skirts. Linen is the perfect material for the heat because it is super light and airy. But I really wanted to wear some more color so I had to wear my favorite floral scarf I got at an outdoor market in Paris.

P. S. Props to my sister for letting me wear her flower clip.
