Yesterday when I was picking out my outfit I came across my trusty old American flag sweater and experienced what I like to call the ‘autumn blues’. The autumn blues are that feeling you get when you realize all of those awesome fall things that you’re missing out on because the weather isn’t appropriate enough for you to enjoy them. These awesome fall things include, but are not exclusive to, vanilla chai tea, chunky scarves, knit tights, peacoats, muted tones of everything, pumpkin spice lattes, and the amazing comfort of sweaters. So, when I picked up that sweater I had a vision of wearing it with a nice pair of shortalls, a black scarf, and some black tights right before my A/C kicked on reminding me that summer is still going strong and leaving me with a case of the autumn blues.

Of course, I wasn’t going to let that hold me back and if I couldn’t have autumn, I figured I might as well enjoy a piece from my autumn collection and wear this delightfully bright sweater. The nearly neon green is just the right kind of fun for the summer and the looser knit has kept me from experiencing too many problems with the heat. Most importantly, I’m getting that refreshing touch of fall in my outfit and that’s enough to keep me going until it gets cool again.

Are any of you guys experiencing the autumn blues and, also, what’s you’re favorite thing about fall?

Not Another Blue Centric Outfit Post

As my 18th birthday is around the corner, I have recently acquired a new camera in the form of an early birthday present. Unfortunately, new tech does not automatically lead to new skill and I’m still in the process of figuring out how to use it, so please bear with me if all of my photos don’t look as pretty as my photos of Animal Kingdom and Cinderella’s castle.

In other news, I’m in the process of trying to get used to wearing sandals. I’d speculate that these ones that I recently bought from Wet Seal are probably the first pair I’ve been willing to wear in about 5 or 6 years and they have me feeling pretty vulnerable in the toe and foot area. To be honest, I thought my feet had been featured on YouTube star Kingsley’s podcast, because they were feeling pretty “overexposed” the entire time I walked around Disney World in them a couple of weeks ago.  Slowly but surely, I am getting used to them in all of their arch support-lacking, studded glory.

Question: Do you guys like sandals in the summer time or do they leave you feeling a bit exposed? I need to know that I’m not the only one who thinks like this.

Vacation From My Vacation

Hello guys! I feel like I haven’t posted in forever, more than likely because I actually haven’t posted in a long time. Usually, breaks in my posts happen because I’m feeling uninspired in terms of my outfits and I don’t find them to be worth sharing, but this time I actually was away traveling to Disney World for my national HOSA competition/conference and then to Memphis for my college orientation. That being said, I am back now, though I do have another trip scheduled for the weekend, and plan to post some more outfits posts and, hopefully, nail art posts soon!100_2832 100_2823 100_2835 100_2836 100_2927 100_2909

 

On the odd chance that any of you are interested in seeing any of my photos from my time at Disney World feel free to stop by my re-vamped tumblr where I’ve been posting some of the photos I’ve taken (and where my ask box is always open if you ever want to chat) or check out my instagram!
