let’s talk about the fact that two big things are happening right now…
1. i am in d.c. again, my second home, for homecoming weekend. this is my first time going to homecoming as an alum, which is insane. four years ago i never would have imagined myself at this stage in my life. by this stage in my life i mean sitting in a starbucks, working remotely for my job, and being a young professional. but surprise, here i am!
2. fall is here, and we all know what that means… hunkering down, getting comfy, fall food, and fall fashion. it’s time for me to break my jeans, sweaters, flannels, and button downs out. i love the idea of pairing a strappy heel with jeans and a button down/flannel, or throwing on a leather skirt with a sweater, high boots, and knee high socks. fall fashion is also the best because it’s the time of year where i finally start to cool down. no joke, i don’t really get cold, mostly hot, which means that summer can be rough. now that the weather is changing i’m in my element, and while it sounds cliche, it’s the best. as you know by now, i love to follow fashion/lifestyle blogs (surprise, surprise), and some of my favorite fall inspiration comes from sincerely jules and brooklyn blonde. jules has a more free-spirited approach to her style, while helena goes for the classic take on fashion. both bloggers know what they’re doing, and have helped me out (through their sites) many a time.
