Fall Outfits in Warm Weather

Hi friends! Is it just me or does it seem like fall has been taking awhile to get here this year? Usually I am excited for fall weeks before most people are and come the first day of fall, I am already wearing oversized cardigans and buying fall-scented candles. But for some reason this year, I have no been able to let go of summer! It just does not at all seem like fall yet to me, and that is probably because of the unusually warm weather in Indiana. Because I still want to wear all of fall clothes, its becoming a little bit of a challenge to figure out how to wear them in the Indy heat 🙂 Mixing rich, jewel tones, such as burgundy and deep green make it much easier to embrace the fall spirit without wearing bulky cardigans. Incorporating details like dainty jewelry keeps layered looks sleek.

As you can see, I was ecstatic about getting Starbucks.

Wishing you a perfectly chilly fall and looking forward to blogging more often this fall

Vests, Plaid, and Arm Candy

Hi friends! Today I am sharing an outfit that has been my go-to for when I have really simple plans and it saves me a lot of time when I am worrying about what I should wear. First off, I have to give a big shootout to one of my favorite blogs to read- Hello Modesty! I originally saw this basic flannel on her website when she wrote a post on multiple different ways to style it. The best part is that this flannel was less than $15 when I purchased it(unfortunately I believe it has sold out, so I will attach some others that are similar at then end of the post.)

I styled this basic top with my favorite vest right now, which y’all have seen on my Instagram and some older posts. I found it in the kids department at Belk over fall break. I also wore my Adidas color switch sneakers(also from the kids department hahaha) to balance the black in the plaid.

My favorite part of this outfit was how I styled my bracelets. Recently, I have started wearing this basic gold watch from Charming Charlie. Some of my teachers do not have clocks in their rooms so it’s great to be able to keep track of time during tests and such. The next set of bracelets that I wore were 3 Alex and Ani gold bangles(ps. Nordstrom Rack has been having a multitude of various Alex and Ani bracelets on sale recently so be sure to check them out if you want to add something new to your daily stack.) Lastly, I wore this cute but random turtle and heart bracelet. You have probably seen them sold with elephant and monkey beads before, but my favorites are the turtle ones so I pick them up whenever I see them.

My apologies that I could not find direct links to any of the items, I did my best to find products that were very similar. The Plaid flannel and Watch that are linked are almost identical to the ones I am wearing in the photos 🙂

Beach Outfit Inspiration

Hi guys! Today I am going to be showing you some of my favorite outfits that I have seen on Pinterest for the summer. I know that sounds crazy because it is nearly December, but I am going to Florida for Christmas and so I was looking for some outfit inspo. I noticed that most of the outfits I was pinning are ones that have a pretty muted color palette, and if they do have any bright colors, they are usually an accessory- like the shoes or the bag. The outfits usually have basic main pieces that are solid colored, or have a small pattern on them- and are accessorized by dainty jewelry, a big hat, structured shoes, or a colorful bag.

I recently was at one of my favorite stores, Old Navy, and I found a pair of block heel sandals for less than two dollars! Needless to say, I bought them in two colors, and my mom bought a pair as well. I can’t wait to style these gorgeous shoes over Christmas Break.

I love how this blogger wore striped shorts instead of plain black ones to style her outfit.

Oh my goodness. I fell in love with this outfit the minute I saw it. It is so interesting, yet all of the pieces are probably ones you have in your closet.

I cannot wait to recreate this look. The denim jacket makes a basic striped dress look so chic.

This is the perfect outfit for a chilly summer day, that is a lot cuter then jeans and sweatpants. I love how the blogger cuffed her joggers to show off the cute Birkenstocks(on another note, I used to think Birks were super ugly, and now I am obsessed with the chic white ones!)

I don’t love this whole outfit, but I really like the idea of a denim skirt paired with a black tee, a dainty necklace, and statement shoes.

Love how this maxi skirt was styled!

Lastly, my favorite YouTuber, Danielle Marie! I love the spin that she put on this outfit by wearing white denim shorts instead of blue ones.

Hope you all enjoyed these summer outfits, be sure to tell me if you use any for inspiration. Finally, all credits go to the owners of these photos, you can find the original source of these photos on my Pinterest board, summer.

All the Plaid

Hi friends! This is my first blog post to y’all since Halloween, and for me, the end of Halloween symbolizes the Christmas season is coming! Yes, yes, we still have Thanksgiving, but how can one not be enticed by the Starbucks Christmas drinks(what are your thoughts on the green Starbucks cups this year? Comment down below!) and the Christmas holiday sales! I for one, am already starting to decorate for Christmas. In fact, today my family and I started taking out our Christmas decorations, as we are very precise in where we place each piece, and usually theme our rooms.

Today(Friday), I didn’t have school and we were running some errands, which included stopping by a vintage Christmas pop-up store! It was in a cute white barn, and the Christmas candles, holiday music, and festive red-and-green vibes really put me in a good mood.

I decided to wear put a extra-festive(lol) spin on my outfit today by wearing two totally different plaid patterns! I used to hate plaid because I have to wear it for my school uniform, but I have come to appreciate how classy it can make an outfit look. By pairing the plaid items with structured neutrals, the plaids in no way overwhelmed the look, but in juxtapose, draws attention to them. I hope that you incorporate plaid pieces into your holiday looks, and maybe even try two at a time. 😉

Styling: Adidas Color Shift Sneakers

Today I am showing you guys an outfit with one of my favorite items from the Nordstrom sale! These Adidas Color Shift sneakers are actually from the kids department but they run so big that I wear a size 6 in women’s shoes and these are a size 2 in boy’s and they fit! I love this look because the black and white look polished but the pop of color in the skirt keeps it from being too boring. Because I wanted to let the skirt be the main piece, I wore simple jewelry.

Summer to Fall transition outfit

If you know me, you probably know that I have a slightly weird obsession with fall. And I honestly don’t see how everyone doesn’t! How could you not love the oversized sweaters, beautiful colors, and hot drinks(obviously I’m talking about Pumpkin Spiced Lattes.) I like to dive into my fall clothing much too soon(as evidenced by the 90 degree weather here) and I think a HUGE issue is trying to figure out what to wear in between summer and fall. The stores already have out fall clothes but the weather could be in the 90s! For today’s outfit,I put a fall spin a very summer-y romper that will be perfect for the transition from summer to fall.

As you can see, the romper, which is from Old Navy, is a summer piece. It’s made from a light material and has embroidering on the top.

The shoes and cardigan give the outfit the perfect fall look. The sweater is great for layering, and it’s basic colors allow the shoes to really pop. These shoes are my favorite fall flats. I bought them at Discovery for $6.99 but I do not think they are available online. As with any outfit I have to wear a Ily Mix item! These mirrored sunglasses pull the look together and the cat eye is so flirty and cute. If you use the code ‘minnie20’ , you will get 20% off your order!
