Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

It breaks my heart to say goodbye to summer and wait until next year for the warmth and sunshine to return to Ohio. However, I now look forward to the simple pleasures of fall. For me, I find it easy to transition from summer to fall because it's not like transitioning from summer to winter. You don't have to dress in super heavy clothing to beat off the chilly weather, but you still have more options rather than just throwing on shorts, flip flops, or a maxi dress. 

I think this outfit consisting of a tank, jeans, simple heels, and a diamond choker is a good fashionable transition from summer to fall. I'm in love with this new black velvet top from Francesca's which fits well for autumn and actually kind of has Halloween witch vibes, and witches are one of my favorite things about the holiday! I'm also very happy because believe or not, this is the first clothing item made of velvet material that I own, and I've been so anxious to finally have something made of velvet to wear!

On a side note, even though I'm not a huge fan of the Kardashian family empire, I feel a lot like Kendall Jenner with this top because it looks like something she would wear. Just throwing that out there.

Autumn will have times in which you'll need to throw on a jacket of some sort if it gets too chilly, which is great for this outfit. The black tank goes with anything, whether that may be a knit cardigan or a leather jacket. Look how perfectly matched the tank and jacket from Cecico in the picture below look, it shows off a cool greaser vibe!

The outfit looks great with any hairstyle, as you can see how I chose to wear my hair in a braid. I'll say that for the majority of outfits I talk about, but this one especially looks killer with any hairstyle, whether the hair is down or pinned back.

I could rave about these ripped boyfriend jeans for about half of this post even though I've blogged about them before. They're absolutely comfy, trendy, and a little voguish. Now they're only $35 at American Eagle where I originally bought them from for $50, so now's the right time to purchase them before they go out of stock! Although I'm sure you'll find plenty of other similar pairs for great deals.

And of course, I will never get over these classic black pointed toe pumps from J. Crew which I've probably blogged about at least ten times by now. They go with everything and always look classy and stylish no matter what, especially with the black velvet tank and jeans! Although if you're going to be walking around somewhere with open wooden floors, I recommend to reconsider wearing them (coming from personal experience while taking these pictures).

Summer has been quite a treat, and I'm already anxious for the sunny season to come back. But for now, I am going to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of autumn while it lasts (hey, that rhymes!) And on a positive note, there's only 110 more sleeps till Christmas, YAY! Although I'm in no rush, 2017 is going by way too fast.

Fall Fever

Finally, it's sweater (vest) weather! 

I just had the best fall break! I didn't do a whole lot, but that sometimes is the best type of break. I slept in every morning, I ate healthier (cause you know college food), went shopping, saw Keeping Up With The Joneses (surprisingly very funny!), and of course spent a great quality time with my family and friends from my hometown. I was exhausted from midterm exams and doing homework all the time, so a four day break was very necessary. And plus, it gave me more time to write this blog post! 

When my mom and I went shopping, I bought a few new clothes and I am eager to share them, I think they are just perfect for fall. And of course, what's a fall fashion photoshoot without pumpkins and everything fall-related?!

The first part of my outfit I want to share are my new pair of light blue ripped mom jeans from Anthropologie. They're perfectly slim and high-waisted, and they are so comfy! At first, when I tried them on, I thought they are a bit tight, but aren't all jeans like that at first? After a while, they became more easy to put on and now I can last throughout the entire day without feeling one bit uncomfortable. I also finally have a pair of jeans that are more ripped, so that makes me very happy! 

Everything at Anthropologie is twenty percent off at the moment, so it's best to buy these jeans as soon as possible! 

My shoes, actually technically my mom's shoes, are designed by Børn and can be bought from Nordstrom. They are so comfy and chic, I'm going to have a can a pair for myself that I can wear all the time. Mom jeans and shoes worn by my mom, it's definitely obvious where I get my fashion sense from.

Of course, I have to prepare for the chilly weather with a black long sleeve shirt from Target (designed by Merona), a black choker necklace from Francesca's, Ray Bay half frames from Sunglass Hut, and my new favorite gray sweater vest from Apple Tree. The vest is probably one of my new favorite fashion pieces for fall. I love how long it is and the soft material it has. It looks great with shirts, pants and dresses. Plus, it has pockets! 

Fall is a beautiful and pleasant time of the year that must be cherished every second as the leaves continue to fall and pumpkins continue to grow. When you have the chance, go on a beautiful fall hike or go to a farm and pick some of the best pumpkins to carve or eat. Also, find that one outfit, whether dressy or comfy, that makes you feel confident, lovely, and expresses the beauty of fall and what it means to you.

Make sure to bundle up though, it's getting cold out there!
