Fall Favorites | Purse Edition

Prior to skipping out with this purse I had never experienced the backpack purse. It was my twenty second birthday, my mom and boyfriend had taken me shopping where I found the prettiest fall booties. The sales lady asked if I would like to receive a purse at a discounted rate for purchasing the booties. That is when I laid my eyes on my new obsession, the backpack purse. A few weeks ago my beloved bag’s zipper broke. I placed it off to the side and thought it was time to move on. 

Halloween Costume Ideas | Work

Since Halloween is on a Wednesday this post is focused on not only last minute ideas but also inspiration for work appropriate costumes. Suggestions on how to make costumes work appropriate are also included for the not so typical options. I did flat lay photos as each costume’s makeup depends on how strict your dress code is at work.

Sass in Red | Fashion

If only the weather were actually cold and not in the high 80’s this jacket would be my daily, however, it is more of a nightly? ha. This red lil sassy jacket is by the brand KUT from the Kloth. It mocks the feel of suede but is vegan obviously. Let me just stop for a second to say it has REAL pockets. Yes, ladies real phone holding pockets that zip. I hate mock pockets, they are such a tease.

Fall Boot Collection

Buckles of Country

Above are the oldest boots in my collection, at about four years old. These tend to get a lot of love during the fall season, however, Carlos Santana boots do not wear out easily. Knee high boots are definitely a staple for fall, I recommend a semi loose classic brown or black color. The buckles on the side provide a unique touch making them give off a cowboy boot vibe.

Fall Trend Report & Outfit Inspiration

Trend report

It is officially fall! My favorite time of the year, when the leaves fall and fashion starts to change. Above are the top colors forecasted by Pantone for the fall 2018 season. It is a palette I have gotten to know fairly well, since fashion designers use this source in the opposite season prior to its debut. I worked with this palette at the beginning of this year at university ha. My favorite has to be the either the Ultra Violet (light purple, 3rd bottom row) or the Valiant Poppy (red, 2nd top row).
