Adding Layers

Forever 21 cardigan, H&M top, thrifted shorts, bag, and belt, Target tights, Urban Outfitters shoes

I forgot how much longer the caption for these photos get in the fall! You know summer is over when you're no longer wearing shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals everyday! Ah well, though I will miss it summer, I am so excited for the layering, hot drinks, and coziness that come with fall! 

I am very happy to say that these photos were taken by the lovely Greta from La Vie die Greta! Last Thursday I went to Journalism Day at the University of Washington as a field trip; Greta, just so happened to be going as well! We went to one of the electives together then snapped these photos on the beautiful campus! I can't wait to meet up with this girl again! 

Have a wonderful first day of fall everyone!!

Sweater Season sweater, Urban Outfitters jeans, thrifted sandals

Today was spent drinking a chai latte, eating a pumpkin muffin, and running errands in the brisk air; all in this perfect summer to fall transition sweater! I'm really hoping I can get out and find some new sweaters to live in this fall. There's just something about cozying up in that perfect sweater...

Flower Child

 Model: Brooke   •   Photography and photo editing: Me   •   Styling: Brooke and I

I'm always looking to experiment with photography and photo editing. My favorite way to do this is with photo shoots. Despite the simplicity of this outfit, my friend Brooke and I took a while getting ready! The light was quickly fading once we actually started shooting; however, I like the mood the darkness gives the photos.

And So It Begins

Converse, thrifted top, belt, purse, and jeans, Kohl's jacket

I decided to use the first football game of the season to break out my new jacket. I can't even tell you how long I've been longing for a jacket like this! I can see the beginnings of autumn weather and I can't wait to be able to throw this jacket over everything ! The closer fall comes the more excited I'm getting. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, sweaters, and rainy days are calling my name.

On Lockdown

I've been trying to put a bit more effort into fixing up my hair. I'm used to spending the whole morning picking an outfit and leaving next to no time for hair, makeup, and sadly, breakfast (Last year I'd eat a bowl of cereal exactly two minutes before I ran out the door to the bus).

Here's a collection of my hair inspirations as of late. I've looking to experiment with my locks and I'm in love with all things bows, barrettes, ponytails, braids, and buns. I think a lot of the reason is all these hairstyles are quick and easy but they allow me to vary from day to day. And accessories just make every hairstyle a bit more fun!

The Perfect Print

Urban Outfitters top and shoes, thrifted shorts

Add polka dots to any outfit and I feel it's instantly put together. Add polka dot cut outs to any sandal and you instantly have the perfect shoe. 

Here's a close up of my favorite shoes of the moment!

Boy Meets Girl

 My brothers top, thrifted belt and shoes, Urban Outfitters jeans

It has proven to be a very fortunate having a brother that's two years younger than me. He takes my outfit photos half the time (my mom takes the other half), and he just went through a growth spurt allowing me to snag two of his old shirts, a flannel and this one! I think it really authenticates the "tomboy" look when you're actually wearing a boys shirt. 

On a side note, the weather here has been so wonderful! It has rained everyday since Tuesday and I've been able to wear actual jeans! This girl could live in jeans and a t-shirt.

Black and White

There's something about the simplicity of black and white photographs that I absolutely adore. Lovely, just lovely. How else does one describe it?

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Three Things

All photos via Pinterest

First, I'm determined to keep summer alive all the way up to September 23 by exploring, laying in bed as long as possible, and being outside.

Second, fruit filled foods will always be my favorite to make. Before summer's over I'm wanting to try Nectarine Galette, Skillet Blueberry Cobbler, and Grilled Blackberry Pizza with Goat Cheese.  

Third, I love ballerinas. Though my ballet days were short, I've always adored how beautiful and dreamy ballerinas are.
