Fall Color Blocking

 As I have mentioned before, fall fashion is my favorite!  Truth be told, I’ve never been the best at layering, but cardigans are an easy fix for the layering-challenged. 

This is a pretty typical fall look for me.  My fall dress code =dress, cardi, leggings and boots.  Voila, totally cute.  I might add a scarf or a belt if I am being really creative.
My typical fall hair, when my hair is mid length, is pigtails, simply because I can style my hair while it is still wet.  I used to think that mid length hair was so boring, but lately I have been able to be totally creative with it!  It is practically a new style every day!

So, here I am color-blocking like a boss.  This dress is pretty awesome, and you can find it here on Modcloth.  I've had this dress for a couple years now, and I would love to have it in another color someday.  The cardi was a hand me down, and the boots I have had for years.

I hope everyone is well  and that you are having fun getting ready for the holidays.  I know I am!!!

Pencil skirt remix!

 Remember this skirt I made around my birthday?  In case you don't, you can see the post here.  Well, it's taken me a while to wear it again, but today just felt right.  This time I wore it with a Limited top and Urban Outfitters shoes.  While we are looking back, look how much my hair has grown since the last time I wore it!  Yay!  It's about time I gave it a little trim and cleaned up the ends, but I hate to cut off any of the length.

Anyway, I'll have plenty of new stuff to show you soon.  I've been sewing a lot, but not finding the time to post.  Soon, I swear!  Welcome to a new week!

Monday Outfit Post: Fan-tastic!

Top, Modcloth.  Pants, GAP.  Tank, Target.  Boots, ?
Just a quick outfit post for today.  I don't know why, but picking out a simple outfit like this can sometimes take me a lot longer than picking out a more elaborate one.  It certainly did this morning!  The highlight of the outfit was this soft fan covered cotton top from Modcloth.  The GAP jeans are an old favorite, and the biker boots just felt right with the super strait hair.

While we are on the topic of my hair, look how long it is!  I cut it all off to get the blond out just about one year ago, and immediately started growing it out.  And look! It's finally almost to my shoulders.  When I first cut it, my bangs were only about an inch long in some places, and now they almost blend in with the rest of my hair.  I get the itch to cut them all of the time, but I am staying strong!

I hope everyone had a good Monday!  I'll have some new sewing projects to share soon.  :)
