Today I had a spontaneous thrifting adventure with my mom. We talked about huge fashions and trends from years before- things her and her friends would look for, make, and obsess over. After shopping around with her we found some great pieces- but we came home feeling extra inspired. We went into my attic to find some of her old favorites. Then she showed me these bad boys.
That’s right- Ferragamo Heels. She thrifted them years back for One dollar and ninety-nine cents. People really don’t know what they’re getting rid of.
She showed me this top- Suede nude button down with a pinkish tone. It matched the shoes perfectly. This season I vote the deeper the V the better. Leave those buttons undone!
I paired the outfit up with Free People Destroyed Ankle Skinnies and was ready to go. This look felt effortless but classic. Can’t wait to get more outfits with these amazing shoes!
The weather is so fantastic right now- absolutely perfect for getting cozy and having coffee outside. Today I was thinking about colors, pallets that truly inspire me, and all I could think of is Rust. If someone were to ask me my favorite color I wouldn’t be able to limit it to one- the entire rust pallet has always had me swooning. The way that burnt oranges and reds combine with greys, browns, and a subdued blue is so aesthetically pleasing to me. Many of my outfits and even my interior designs are inspired by these colors. Today I utilized this scheme in my outfit, and was inspired by small details of my room.
I’ll be honest, this summer was one of the best times of my life. I haven’t felt so free, so happy, and so grateful to be alive in years. I am so glad I started to work less; I’d rather have a mind full of memories over a pocket full of cash any day. It was hard to make that decision- but I can’t even explain how much I really needed that time to myself. I spent my summer running around- constantly moving from one place to another, and I loved it! I’m the kind of person that LOVES to stay busy. Unfortunately with that being said I did seem to neglect my blog a bit- many apologies to you lovelies who stop by time to time! But tis the season- my very favorite fashion season of all- so I am back with an intention to stay on top of it! I feel very refreshed this fall, and look forward to being very organized and informative!
Firstly I have to apologize. I have not posted in quite a while, I’ve had some significant changes occur in my life recently and had to sort out some ideas. I have also recently been working on updating the site, but that’s still in the works. So as many of you know, I have worked for Free People for just about two years now. I was promoted to the Full Time Assistant Store Manager this summer, which was more than an honor to me. I have become so immersed in this business and this company, and wish to continue on this career path. However, I may have forgotten about the fact that I was also a 20 year old full time student. Needless to say, it became entirely too difficult to balance a job that requires such intense commitment and also trying to not only pass 5 classes but take as much information from them as possible. So I had to make a decision, and I chose to take time off of work. I have to say, this was certainly one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make. I had received the job I had dreamt about, it felt so surreal, and I had to give it up.
Hey all! Sorry I was lame the past two days and didn’t get a chance to post, but I was extra busy packing for my mini-vacation this weekend with my darlin’ Nicky. We headed up after work Friday, but before I left I was sure to snap a few photos of my outfit:
This big scarf is actually a wrap, and it is the most comfortable blanket shawl sweater scarf in the world.
I layered up underneath with a tight thermal with a sleeve detail and a flowy top over it.
paired with a simple choker, jeans, and my favorite knee high boots.
