Fall Essentials Shopping Guide

It’s finally fall! Fall is definitely my favorite season for fashion. I especially love the cozy layers, interesting textures, and darker color schemes or fall outfits. Here are some fall essentials to stock up on this season. Ankle Boots Fall is prime time for ankle boots. If you live somewhere warmer, it’s probably cooling down enough that you don’t feel the need to wear open-toed shoes all the time. If you live somewhere that gets cold in the winter, fall is a great time to break out cute boots before the snow starts and you’re forced into snow boots. Knits When I think of fall, cozy knits are one of the first things that come to mind. They keep you warm and look cute without looking bulky. They also make great layering pieces with…

Black Bells

I don't think I've owned any other cut of jeans other than skinny since the 7th grade. Being pear-shaped and having a long torso, I've always felt like anything other than super skinny jeans made my legs look wider and shorter.

Velvet Witch

I was really channeling my inner witch with the outfit. With the transition from summer to fall, I find myself reaching more for my multi-seasonal pieces this time of year.

Tattoo Sleeve Part II

I’ve finally taken the leap into getting a full sleeve (sorry, Mom). While I love tattoos, I’ve always been a little hesitant when it came to having tattoos in places that were regularly visible.

Orange Desert Woman

Since tourist season is pretty much over by the end of August, my boyfriend and I decided to go on vacation to Arizona again. While Arizona was super hot, it was also beautiful and a great place to get away from everything.

What I Packed For Arizona

My boyfriend and I are heading out to Arizona again! While we went out to the desert during the best weather of the year last time, we're going out during the worst weather this time.

All That Glitters…

For a lot of my life, I thought that yellow gold was matronly. Yellow gold was the color of my grandmothers' wedding rings as well as all of their costume jewelry.

Silver Statements

Choosing between silver and gold sucks, but sometimes there's just a clear winner. My Ganesha Statement Piece from Sticks + Stones is by far my favorite piece of jewelry so I had no issues deciding to go with silver as my metal of choice for this outfit.
