I haven't been as prompt as I would of liked posting about the Emmys, but nonetheless, here are some of my favorite looks. White and red were the colors of choice on the Emmys red carpet and all of the women looked amazing! Crop tops, cut-outs, and lace...nothing was off limits. I love the start of award season, mostly for the beautiful red carpet gowns, but it also means that Fall isn't far behind. It is my favorite season after all.

All thanks to Beyoncé.
There were other people at the VMAs you say? Nope, not possible! Almost two weeks since the show aired, I can't stop thinking about her performance and her body suit. Just. stop. Beyoncé. How are us regular girls supposed to get shit done if you're out there doing everything perfectly?! You know what ladies, let's take a note from Bey and bow down and respect. She gave the performance of her LIFE while shutting down divorce rumors.
Okay, REAL talk. How can I get my hands on this body suit? Or how do I go about making it? These are the questions that keep me up at night, but I'm going to make it happen. Who wouldn't want a casual bejeweled body suit for every day wear? Someone I can't be friends with, that's who.
Did anyone else see Blue dancing on Jay's lap?! AHH, if you missed it, scroll down. You're welcome.

I have no words for this cuteness. I must go and rethink my entire life and practice my dance moves.

With the weather yanking at my heart strings, fall has finally arrived and seems to be hear to stay. And I couldn't be happier! The beautiful leaves have changed and begun to fall, the crisp air and gloomy skies; it's a reason for scarves and boots to resurface in your daily wardrobe. I can't imagine living anywhere other than the east coast, or a place that I am able to see nature change so beautifully right before my eyes. Fall isn't just a physical change, it's an emotional/spiritual change for me as well. It's almost like a new time where we can start over once again; new season means new adventures! Hope you're all taking time to enjoy this beautiful time of year! :)
My fall wardrobe is comfy and ultimately about layering pieces. While I had family in, I wore this outfit to run some errands in (mall, grocery store, etc). I wore the scarf, which I borrowed from my lovely sister, as a shaw around my collared shirt. It added just enough warmth without having to add a sweater. My favorite recent purchase is the navy hat with gold detailing from Anthropologie, which I feel really tied the outfit together. My go-to cognac boots from macys was and always will be one of my best investment pieces. They go with any color, and I fancy the shade more than a dull brown.
jeggings: american eagle
awesome hat: anthropologie
rad chair: marshalls
Nearly three years after renovating the upstairs of my house, I am finally pulling pieces to personalize my bedroom. The first piece I bought was this blue and tan design chair from Marshalls. I love colors, with three walls being peachy pink and one wall being dark shade of red, bold/mix/match colors are what I have my eyes on.
Looking forward for my next post on Birchbox, I signed up and received my October box yesterday! :) I will give my review of the overall box, and products inside!
Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather so far!

When I think of a floral head piece, I think of summer music festivals (coachella, bonnaroo, etc.). I wanted to bring this trend into the fall months with just a few add-ons to your outfit. Instead of wearing your favorite summer dress and sandals, switch it up with the same dress, tights, boots or comfy flats, and your choice of outerwear (structured blazer, sweater, etc.)
what you'll need:
flowers - 3 bunches (use all the same type or different kinds)
30 minutes or less
I began making my head piece by measuring my head with the wire giving myself a little room for the bulkiness of the flowers. I sealed the head piece by simply wrapping the two ends together. Then I placed the flowers around the circle to give myself an idea of how it would look. I cut approx. 5 inch wire to use to attach the flowers onto the head piece. I wrapped the end of the wire onto the flower stem and then did a figure eight to securely attach it to the circle and continue on until you fill it with as many flowers as you'd like. :)
Finish product below along with some selfies. I only did half of the crown; it laid nicely on the back on my head. I would suggest using a thicker wire than I did, because even though I used fake flowers, they needed a little more support. Otherwise, I'm happy with my first diy floral head piece! Good luck with yours! :)
Always have fun and add your own flare to whatever you're doing whether it's a diy, your outfit, or even your daily life.

Dear Anna Wintour,
The Vogue September issue is PERFECTION, and i know you anxiously await to hear my review.
Your loyal follower,
I am a little behind with this post, but it's taken me this long to read the entire issue (haha, maybe a tiny bit serious --let's get real 902 pages is ALOT); the actual magazine has been on stands since mid August, but just when people stop talking about it I MUST bring it into the conversation again. Jennifer Lawrence is my soul sister, hopefully future BFF, and just a beautiful woman. I.can't.get.over.how.awesome.she.is. Every guy wants to be with her, and every girl wants to be her.
^This is my favorite photo featured in the mag. Flowers make my happy, happy,happy. :)
If you have something bad to say about Jennifer Lawrence, I'm not sure we can be friends. I'm kidding, no but seriously. I mean look how happy those dogs are, and they are great judges of character.
The photo spread in the magazine is STUNNING. I love her shorter 'do. She seems so genuine and real. She is hilarious and I just can't wait to see more of her movies. I think she's a perfect inspiration/role model for younger girls and even girls like me that are her age.
September issues are my favorite issues because they're not only the largest, but they are packed with FALL FASHION (Oprah voice). Fall is my favorite season to dress for; sweaters, tights, boots, scarves, blazers; the layering; what's not to love?
What's your favorite season to dress for?
Next post I will be DIY'ing a usual summer trend and bringing into Fall. Stay tuned ;)
