Outfit of the Day: Faux Fur and Coral

 Good Evening! Winter is quickly approaching and I really am dreading the arrival of the first snowfall. Although I do not hate snow, it is quite a nuisance when I love to take pictures down by the river.
 This was my outfit from Sunday. It was such a lovely day and I really could not pass up the opportunity to go take some photos. You can't see her, but my puppy, Coco, accompanied me and was sitting behind the camera. She loves rolling in the leaves. :)
 Upon taking pictures, I went to a coffee shop downtown with some very good friends to work on a school project. Although I am not much of a coffee drinker, I did manage to spoil myself with a couple cups of hot chocolate and a really delicious sandwich.
I don't know about everyone else, but I am extremely excited about Black Friday. I haven't shopped in a few weeks for preparation. I plan on going out at midnight. So excited! Hopefully, I will be able to get all of my Christmas shopping completed, so in December I won't have to frantically hunt down gifts.

I will most likely be posting a haul post after black Friday, so stay tuned! Typing "stay tuned" reminded me of playing "Nancy Drew: Stay Tuned for Danger"...anyone else obsess over Nancy Drew games? No? No one? Okay.

P.S. If I don't upload a post before, I hope everyone has a spectacular Thanksgiving!

Some Blog Changes

As you may have noticed, there is now an Instagram tab added to the top of my blog! Now, all of my photos taken on Instagram will all appear under this tab, so even when I do not upload a blog post there will always be new pictures being added!
 I believe that by adding this tab, you will get a more accurate view into my everyday life! I do use my Instagram as somewhat of a fashion diary, along with nature photography and little snippets of my everyday life.

Here are some of the photos I took for a recent Photography project!
If you guys would like me to also connect my twitter so that my tweets are also sent to my blog, let me know! And don't forget to check back often to see what's going on in my everyday life!
If you have an Instagram, Follow me!!

Outfit of the Day: Leopard and Levitation

 I could not have asked for a better day to go out and explore nature as well as take some pictures. The sun hung perfectly in the sky and peeped through the branches at just the right angle. Today, I decided to try out some other wooded areas near me for photography and I was pleasantly surprised. It's funny how enthusiastic I get over finding a nice fallen tree or a lovely pile of leaves.

I accidentally made the mistake of sitting on a wood rail while it was wet. Oh well, nothing a washing machine can't fix. Today, I was supposed to go to a craft fair, however my day didn't turn out as planned, so instead I took advantage of the weather.

 I find it so easy to become engulfed by the beauty of nature. Especially during the fall season. I'm a sucker for the smell and sound of dead, crinkling leaves. It's so therapeutic. Unfortunately, I am not able to spend my whole weekend out gallivanting due to the fact that I have multiple projects that need to get done today as well as having to work.


Right now, as I am putting this blog post together, I am listening to Patrick Watson. Lately, he has been the only artist I'll listen to. His music is very folksy indie-rock. It's such easy music to mellow out to and just relax. I strongly suggest you check him out if you listen to artists such as Bon Iver or City and Colour.

P.S. I dabble in levitation. Cool right?

Outfit of the Day: Burgundy Cords and Scarf Print

 I absolutely love everything about fall. The colors, the smell, the fashion. Everything. It's a shame that it comes and goes so quickly. If I could just bask in its beauty forever, I would.

 In this outfit of the day, I was down by the river taking photos for my media design class and thought to myself "Hey, what a perfect blogging opportunity" so here I am! Although the air was crisp and it was drizzling nearly the whole time, my surroundings were still awe-inspiring. As Regina Spektor says, "Leaves become most beautiful when they're about to die".
I have found myself constantly grabbing for my new pair of burgundy cords I recently purchased. The color is just so saturated and the fabric, so comfy. Hopefully, you find time to go embrace the fall colors before they are all completely gone.
What I'm wearing:
Blouse- Tj Maxx
Burgundy Cords- Tj Maxx
Wedges- Target
Skinny Belt- Target
Skull necklace- Kohls
Gold bracelet- Vintage
