guys, today is the first day of october, and i am legitimately freaking out. once october rolls around i feel like fall is officially here, and i couldn’t be more excited. i am a cold weather, crispy leaves, pumpkin-flavored anything, cozy sweater, roaring fire, boot wearing kind of person. (that was a mouthful, i know) the thought of leaves changing, the smell of fall filling the air, and that first really chilly day makes me deliriously happy. you may or may not be reading this and thinking this girl is incredibly dramatic, a bit crazy, and more obsessed with fall than she should be, but you’re right. from now until december, i’m in my favorite three month period of the year and i couldn’t be happier. if you think i’m freaking out now, just wait until december rolls around…
hey there guys! after moving back to school last weekend, i’m back and ready to get my life in lipstick up and running again.. i needed a bit of time to settle in, but classes are starting up again and i’m slowly, but surely developing a routine. speaking of getting myself together and staying in the loop with my school work, i wanted to share something very cool with you all. i have had the amazing opportunity to partner up with a chain of stores in my town (loop, gallery couture, and the gibson) to blog about some of my favorite pieces and outfits from time to time (or school break to school break).
every season new trends come and go, and i usually try my hardest to not spend a ton of money partaking in them. the animal sweater trend is going to make this extremely difficult. from burberry to j.crew, these sweaters are popping up everywhere and i couldn’t be more excited. so far i have the madewell meerkat in my possession, and i know i’m going to add more (or once again, i’ll attempt to save money as my mom insists and not buy more…)
also thank you to alex winston (and the j.crew store soundtrack) for the title inspiration, this song is amazing!
yesterday i popped into madewell after work (like i almost always do) and started talking to some of the employees about the fall 2012 line. i was allowed to take a peak at the upcoming window displays, and let me tell you, it was amazing. the shoes alone are out of this world and i am counting down until this collection is released in stores. head over to madewell.com for a sneak peek at their fall collection. i promise you won’t be disappointed!
