This past weekend was packed with events and festivals. Instead of just telling you I figured it would be fun to show you all as well with a vlog below. This way you can watch my natural makeup routine as well as laugh along with me as I try to choose an outfit. Anyone else ever have a slip mishap? ha. *Pro tip… always measure how long you need a slip to be prior to ordering it.
I encourage you to take a mental break for yourself for one day or even just a couple of hours. My mental break consisted of driving out to an Edible Arrangements for the first time for fresh fruit. *Pro tip… order ahead of time if you want something specific even if you are just wanting their fresh fruit items from behind the counter. They literally only had two cups of chocolate strawberries the day I went so no fresh yummy cantaloupe for me. You can order items online and pick them up in the store so easy fix to guarantee you get exactly what you want.
The next event on my mental break was to attend the Honey Festival which was super crowded and extremely hot. Well eighty nine degrees feels like one hundred and fourteen when it has been in the mid sixties and seventies. We (the boyfriend and I) walked around for only about an hour since it was hot, but it was still a fun outing. To properly end the evening, once it cooled off we went for a beautiful sunset walk. Nature, in small doses at least, seems to help me detox mentally. Always remember in order to take care of others, you must first take care of your own health both physical and mental.
Since it has been awhile since my last style file or what I wore this week this seemed to be the perfect time. The weather around this neck of the woods in California has been a bit chilly with foggy rainy mornings and sunny afternoons. For a reference, it has been around 57-65 degrees Fahrenheit here. Considering the fact that it is required to wear closed toed shoes in the office I rarely wear heels unless they are boots. That being said I still uphold a semi relaxed formal attire. All of these looks include soft, warm yet breathable material to provide all day comfort.
Material: Think giant sweatshirt dress yet more professional.
The holiday season is finally here or should I say already here? ha. I feel as if these last couple of months have flown by. Thanksgiving is versatile as some people dress fancy and others keep it casual. After all we are all just sitting around at the kitchen table with the purpose of showing gratitude. Whether you enjoy dress up or not this look book covers various styles.
To finish off the look I am wearing the Chuck Taylor II’s in white. Do not ruin an outfit with the classic black, try white; they are easier to keep clean than you think. Having trouble believing me, check out my blog post on how I take care of mine, they are a year old now.
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.
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).
