"Falling" in Love with Fall Outfits

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Does anyone know what is colorful, mild in nature, pretty, and coming up? Guesses?
 FALL! It is right around the corner. So, in anticipation for the cooler and mild weather coming up, I wanted to do a post about some clothing I have been eying! If you saw my "so summer is almost over...' post, you may have seen some outfits I think are just gorgeous for fall! If you liked it, then here is another post for you, with {hopefully} just as cute outfits! I plan on doing a few more of these fall outfit posts, so I will keep this short!

I love tan leather jackets. Just putting that out there-but I really like the style of this one:
 I honestly do not know the brand, because I found it randomly on Google, and it said it was selling for $170. So, I am sure it is probably real leather! I think this would go really well with this ruffled top. I would then pair it with a pair of dark wash jeans, and maybe some brown boots.  Next, I stumbled upon more designer clothing by Buffalo Jeans and found this sheer button up that I think would look GREAT slightly tucked in to jeans, and with a burgandy scarf like this:
from Forever 21. I would wear either a flesh-tone tanktop under the sheer top, or a black bandeau. You could wear some heals with it for a night out, or, to keep it casual for daytime, wear some cute boots like these beauties from stevemadden. com. This next outfit I found online, and couldn't even use it for inspiration, because I loved it all so much! 

It is really simple, but so pretty. I am not a huge fan of flare jeans, so I would opt for a similar color and wash, but as a boot leg or skinny jean [especially if I would want to tuck them into the boots!] This last look I am not sure everyone will like-but hey, I am still a little bit on the fence too, so you can tell me what you think! It is always fun to try a new trend, so what-the-heck!
The faux fur vest is from Forever 21, I am not sure if they even still sell it; again, I would pair this outfit with the boots mentioned from stevemadden.com. I think it would be nice to belt the vest for a tighter fit, but I would also wear the vest open. To tie it all together, the burgundy colored nail polish would add a great finishing touch! I would want a faux fur vest, because I am not sure how I would feel with real animal fur keeping me warm...that's kind of gross ha. But anyways, that is all for this post, le tme know what you think!

Also, I feel like I always put a billion pictures in every post I have, so I decided to use more links this time instead. Comments? Do you like it that way, or with my usual billion pictures?

Liebster Award : )

Monday, August 27, 2012

I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award…twice! So I decided to answer both sets of questions the girls asked, but will only do 11 random facts about myself (because I am not too sure I can come up with 22!) Thanks to Jennifer at Little Miss Alizzi for nominating me first, and to Becca at Beginning with Becca for nominating me recently! It was so sweet of them to nominate me:)  I will start with Jennifer’s questions first!
1. What is your favorite store to shop at? Probably Forever 21, H&M, and Express. But really, I am not too picky! If a store has great deals, I am there!
2. What is favorite type of Food? CHOCOLATE! Does that count? If not, then cheeses, and pasta. MMMM.
3. What is your Fav. Summer activity? Just being able to relax in general and not have to worry about college classes for a few months.
4. What is your biggest pet peeve? When people lie, hurt others, or act like someone they are not. Are those pet peeves?!
5. What color best describes you? A few. White- it’s pure, in that I am honest. I don’t lie to others and never intentionally hurt someone’s feelings. I would also say lavender. I am very calm, and go with the flow; I am not wild and all over the place [but sometimes I wish I was a little more wild because I feel boring at times : (  ]

Next, we have Becca’s questions:

1.     Why did you start blogging? I was reading other girls blogs, and it seemed interesting to do. Also, I watched youtube beauty videos for years, and new I was too shy to make beauty videos, so the blog was easier for me!
2. How did you come up with your blog name? I thought it sounded nice-no one should be told what is beautiful and what isn’t; beauty isn’t this constrained definition with specific guidelines. So many things are beautiful and it shouldn’t be limited to this or that!
3. What is your favorite part about blogging? No one can tell me what to do or write about. Unless I am answering questions like this haha
4. Are there any parts of blogging that you do not like/get annoyed with? Other bloggers that act like they are the best of the best. Everyone is good at blogging in their own way, everyone has a different approach.
5. Have you met any friends through blogging? Hmm hard to answer. There is definitely blogs I follow and love, and am pretty close in age to the bloggers, so I can relate and would love to meet them! But, I have not actually literally “”met” someone.
6. What is your favorite thing to do on your down time? Watch youtube videos, read a book (when I have no college classes-so when I am on some sort of holiday break), and catch up on other blogs.
7. What is your favorite holiday and why? Christmas or Thanksgiving, because all my family is pretty much at one place at one time, and because of the FOOD! You know I love my food!<----Holiday dessers specifically, oh, and cheese ball with crackers. Mmmm.
8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Graduated from college with a job as an RN. Engaged to be married (if not already married) and enjoying life!
9. If you could choose one celebrity to be best friends with, who would it be? Uh I may not be able to answer this. There are too many celebrities and circumstances. If I had to pick off the top of my head, the first person that pops up is Demi Lovato. She seems nice and down to earth!
10. What is your dream vacation? Well, after following Andee Layne’s blog, it seems like the Caymen Islands is amazing. Also, Hawaii looks gorgeous! One of those two probably. Shoot, or Paris.
11. If you could have your dream job, what would it be and why? Working with newborns. I don’t even know what specifically I would like to be doing, but I adore babies so much! I plan on working on the Neonatal floor as a nurse, but, if I had some dream job that actually paid a great salary, I would want it to be babysitting newborns haha.

11 random facts about me:
1.     I love chocolate, cheese, and pasta way more than I should.
2.     I am going to school to be a registered nurse.
3.     I am too full right now, because about an hour and a half ago (yeah, still full) I ate a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup, and so did my roommate. But we had leftover soup, and nothing to eat it with, so we made ANOTHER sandwich and split it. Now I don’t want to do my ab workout : (
4.     I HATE driving. Especially in my college town I am living at. It’s so busy all the time, I am literally scared to leave to do anything.
5.     I am putting off reading two chapters of Genetics so I can do this post.
6.     I wish people communicated more to me! I love to talk to followers of my blog, and always comment on my favorite blogs.
7.     I am having trouble thinking of random facts.
8.     I rarely ever style my hair. I don’t like putting heat on it, so I usually just let it air dry and just wear it however it dried. Sometimes it isn’t very cute.
9.     I want to be a nurse, but sometimes I get so stressed, and don’t enjoy being at college, and just hate all the hard work it takes to become a nurse. Those are the times I ask myself “why am I putting myself through this?” or “why does all my friends get to enjoy their college experience and I don’t?” But then I will do well on an exam and I feel better.
10.  I want to live in Kentucky or Tennessee when I graduate. Or Columbus, Ohio. Who knows, those are just a few ideas! [I already live in Ohio].
11.  I have the biggest heart ever, and some people, even those I care about most, take advantage of it sometimes.
That is all for the questions I was asked!

and here is what you do if you are nominated:
1. Link back to the person who gave the award to you... they deserve the love too!
2. Post the award on your blog for all to see.

Sunday Social : )

Sunday, August 26, 2012

1. What is the first website you log into each day?
Either blogger.com, yahoo.com, or twitter!

2. Give us some funny websites that you visit that we need to know about.
I used to go to bored.com and there was all sorts of funny things on there- but that was years and years ago! Now, the only sites that I do look at funny things on would be pinterest, or youtube! I just browse and stumble from one thing to another!

3. Pinterest or Facebook? Why?
Ugh. Pinterest. I really do not like Facebook. I have it, but only am keeping it until I download all my pictures onto a cd or something! Facebook is just so drama filled, and people are just nosey! Pinterest is fun to occupy yourself with, look up DIY things, or post blog things to!

4. Twitter or Instagram? Why?
Probably twitter. Instagram is awesome and all, buuuuuuut twitter is a lot more interesting!

5. Favorite YouTube video. Post it!

This is Spandy Andy! He had a corporate job, hated it, and became a street dancer. He just likes to make people smile, and he dances around to do it : ) I watched like every one of his videos one day, and it cheered me up so much!

Skyscraper by Demi Lovato... gives me chills everytime I listen to it!

Meet Kandee Johnson. Youtuber, blogger, momma, and all around amazing person. She is super inspirational, and I love her videos. This one especially! WARNING: Even after months of not watching this, I still feel the need to randomly say "Whats that in your eye? It's the fourth of July". ITS CATCHY!

6. Biggest online pet peeve?
Spam. Ads that you have to watch the full amount of time, instead of skipping after a few seconds!
Yay for finally being able to do the Sunday Social! I have missed it a few times lately, with work, moving, and classes starting!
