How to Rock the Latest Fall Fashion

I’m back! Well…my fashion posts are anyway. I know that it’s been a while since I’ve featured my collages, but I’ve been working on creating quality content on faith issues (while juggling school and life as well).

But I plan on making a comeback with my modest fashion posts! What better way to kick off the return of these posts than a jam-packed feature on the latest fall fashions? I hope you enjoy!

Midnight Floral

Although floral patterns are usually associated with spring, this year they are here to stay! The key to wearing fall florals is making sure that the print is set against a black or navy background.

Pro Tip: If you’re not up to rocking bold florals, try a subtle print on either jewelry or some cute boots. Let your accessories do the talking!

Ruffles and Frills

I just love feminine and vintage fashion. Ladies, it’s okay to be girly. And when it comes to ruffles, tassels, and bell sleeves, being girly is a blast! This look is great because it is classy and modest. The extra ruffles add warmth too…or at least that’s my excuse to say the look is practical.

Pro Tip: I love how pastels are still in style for fall–especially lavender. In order to update the look further, pair these girly pieces with some fall boots or dark earrings.

Girly Grunge

While I love being a “girly girl,” there’s a part of me that’s still edgy. Perhaps it’s a remnant of my punk wannabe high school days, but somehow I’m always drawn to these kinds of pieces. 90’s kid style is back with plaid, printed skirts, and even fedoras! And just look at those star-studded boots.

Pro Tip: I like to strike a balance when it comes to “edgier” clothing, as to not look too rebellious. That’s why wearing skirts or a flowy kimono is a great way to soften the look.

Velvet Crush

There are some trends that I just wait to come back in style. Crushed velvet is one of them. I’m so happy to see these soft, textured pieces in stores! Crushed velvet is perfect in cute pastel colors. Pairing these pieces with black colored clothing or accessories makes them stand out in a perfect way.

Pro Tip: How do you keep crushed velvet classy? You can always start with accessories–such as shoes or a purse. I also like a crushed velvet tank top under a black jacket or cardigan. This keeps the look modest and mature.

How to Style~Jumpsuits

Hello lovely readers and followers! Happy Halloween 🙂 I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying the treats and cute kids running around in their costumes. I think it helps to start the week off on a holiday.

A fashion trend I’ve been wanting to try is the jumpsuit. I know they’ve been in style for a while now, but I think I’m just starting to muster the courage to try one out (I know, I’m slow lol). Today’s fashion post is all about styling jumpsuits!

I chose gray for this collage because I am addicted to it. I cannot stress enough about how flattering gray is on everyone, and it is also a great neutral for the upcoming holidays (yup, they’re closer than you think!).

A loose-fitting jumpsuit with tapered legs and a cinched waist is flattering for most shapes. A cropped sweater makes a great cover-cup, and can also add some modesty and class. Don’t forget the booties–a simple wedge is perfect for this time of year. I also think a statement piece of jewelry like a nice bracelet or necklace helps to pull off the glamorous side of the jumpsuit.

Style Tips to Remember

  • Find a figure flattering jumpsuit for your shape.
  • Add a cute cover-up (such as a cropped sweater or jacket)
  • Pair with wedge booties 
  • Wear a statement piece of jewelry

Trending~Animal Couture

Hello lovely readers and followers! I know it’s Monday, but I hope you’re having a great start to your week. I know for us college students it’s crunch time with midterms and end of the semester preparations.

You know what always cheers me up? Cute animals! (Cats of Instagram anyone?) So naturally, I want animals to be a part of my everyday life. Even though you may be like me and have a furry friend at home to cuddle your stress away, what about when you leave?

210138844

I found the solution! Now you can “wear” your favorite cute animal! Pet themed sweaters, jewelry, and purses are trending right now, and they make an easy Halloween costume. Cats, puppies, owls, and other critters are making it onto everything this season. Wear these items with a nice jacket and jeans for a polished everyday look.


Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post. Do you have any pets? Tell me in the comments below!

How to Style~Duster Cardigans

Hello lovely readers and followers! Happy Fashion Saturday! Say what?? What happened to Friday? Well, I came down with a virus this week that kind of knocked me out. Good news is I think I’m on the mend, and now I am honored to be a part of your weekend!

Today’s collage is about duster cardigans. I have one in burgundy (big surprise lol), and I absolutely love it! It’s very 90’s fall chic.

210137883

Dusters are cardigans that go below the knee. They are warm, cozy, and very classy. I chose a gray one for this collage because it’s such a gorgeous neutral. It complements any hair color or skin tone. Since dusters are so long, wear a shorter/boxier blouse underneath to create balance. Skinny jeans or leggings (or as my Aunt Laura would say, leggins’!) look great under dusters.

If you want a bolder look, pair it with over the knee boots! They are trending right now, and the duster’s length will hit at the top of the boots to really show them off.


Thanks for reading, I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have anything fun planned for the weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Hiking Boots + What Should I Write??

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Life is busy as usual, with many good things happening all around me (including my brother’s upcoming wedding!). Anyway, while life is running a mile a minute and I’m trying to edit my book, sometimes I get stuck on what to post for my blog.

I always let the Holy Spirit be my guide when it comes to writing posts about my faith, but that doesn’t mean I never get writer’s block! So I’m asking for your help.

What do you want me to write about?

Is there any life issue you’re facing or advice you think I can provide? Do you want me to post some creative fiction? Any current issues you want me to cover from a faith point of view? Something else?? Please let me know in the comments below or contact me here!

Thanks for your feedback 🙂 Now time to talk boots! I LOVE boots. They are my favorite type of shoe to wear (other than Converse). Although my style is kind of girly, I love a nice tomboy boot.

Hiking boots in particular are trending right now. I don’t really hike (unless walking around on campus counts lol), but I do love the cozy feel and slightly rugged look of these boots.

You can get a “duck boot” (top left) for an extra edgy appeal. You can also find boots with heels for a more girly vibe. There are also other colors besides traditional browns (like the navy pair on the bottom right). They go so well with any fall outfit and are perfect for chilly temperatures.

I actually have the duck boots from the collage above! They are Esprit brand, and I got them for a bargain at T.J. Maxx. I love wearing them with my burgundy cardigans or a chunky sweater and skinny jeans. I actually wore them to a cider mill last weekend, and let me tell you, I felt like I was in a fall advertisement.
