dreaming of fall vibes

I apologize for the lack of posting as of late. Life has been crazy. I’ve started school and am juggling 4 jobs. That was crazy in itself, but on Thursday I started having some terrible pain in my mouth. Due to the terrible pain, I had to miss class and go to the doctor (luckily I got a same day appointment) who told me my wisdom teeth needed to come out ASAP. So, we scheduled it for the next day. 
Let me tell you, getting your wisdom teeth out is no fun. They had to put me to sleep and since I woke up, I’ve felt awful. I thought I’d be better by now, but it’s still pretty bad. I actually woke up almost feeling worse today. Bleh. 
So, I’m stuck at home and loopy on drugs. I’ve been in and out of sleep, but mostly trying to calm my nerves and feel better with some White Collar and HGTV. Add in a couple hours of the Sims 4 and you’ve got my weekend so far. I honestly don’t know how I’m even able to write this post. BUT. I needed to get a post out. 
So, while I’m completely lost in creative thought, I figured I’d share some links and a little fall inspiration. It may still be hot as heck here, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream of fall leaves and apple chai!
Ooh! Looks like Pantone has named its colors of spring… What do you think? I absolutely adore the colors I’m seeing. Lucite green, aquamarine, custard… So beautiful! I’m quite excited to see how these colors translate into the fashions we’ll see.
Kelsey’s transformation is so awesome. I’m actually growing out my hair and staying away from coloring it as well, so I’ve been loving checking out others’ hair transformations!
fall 2014 vibes
Had some fun throwing together this little fall inspiration board. Since I’ve been stuck at home the past couple of days feeling no motivation to even get up, let alone get dressed, I’ve at least been dressing for fall in my mind! One of the things I dislike most about living in Arizona is the lack of actual seasons. I’d love to have a blustery fall instead of a fall in the 80s. 
This fall, I’m craving rich colors mixed with more airy ones. Maroons, mustards, grays, tans, light pinks. Style-wise, I’m loving panama hats, lace and small details. Distressed jeans are definitely on my radar and on my body pretty much every minute I’m not working. I love how I can mix them with a more formal piece for a stylish, put together look that’s still laid back. I’m also obsessed with leather and basics like the trench above. I really wish I could do that maroon tulle skirt… How cute is it? That with a graphic tee tucked in, some pumps and my hair in a top knot. Mhm. Jewelry-wise, I’m loving rose gold and more antique looking pieces. One of my favorites right now is a large druzy stone from The Shine Project. Organic pieces that go with everything are definitely going to be my go-tos this season.
So bring on the chai lattes, sweaters, cool breezes and cuddles. Fall, I’m ready for ya.
