I am not a fashion blogger. In fact, for a long time, I never understood how fashion bloggers take those really professional photos. Like, is that a real photographer behind that lens or her boyfriend? Luckily, my bloggy friends finally informed me that yes, sometimes it is her boyfriend, and other times it’s a tripod camera. A milkawhat?
This is one of the main reasons that I love pinterest. Even without all the fancy technology, I can still pretend to know a thing or two about the fashion industry. In fact, my fall fashion board is my only pinterest board currently hovering above 100 pins. If you’ve been around here for a little while, you are aware of my slight obsession with keeping pinterest boards within 100 ole images. It’s the only way that I will continuously reference them for inspiration. Admittedly, with all the latest and greatest outfit threads, it’s hard to limit myself, especially when I am in a pinning frenzy. This is why I enforce my pinterest fashion golden rule: I only pin images that remind me or include articles of clothing in my own wardrobe. It helps keep me sane.
When I glanced at my fall fashion board recently, I was excited to see a few things that popped out at me that I knew I wanted to rock this season. So, I decided to put together a little fall fashion show. I mean… Why not??! Even if I can’t play with the big girls, at least I can give it a shot! A big thank you to my “photographer”; apparently we can’t do this stuff without y’all. Boots and pants!
1. Color Inspiration – I loved this yellow dress styled with an oversized scarf. I loved it even more when I realized that I have one in a very similar color in my own closet. Since my dress is strapless, I paired it with a cotton blue jacket.
dress: Old Navy // jacket: gift // scarf: Gap // booties: gift
2. Close, but not quite: Damn, leather has been hot these past couple of years. Unfortunately, I never made the splurge on any actual piece of leather clothing. Luckily, however, this pinterest pic reminded me of some plain old black pants and top that I had lying around in my dresser. Thrown together with some neon pink pumps, I was feeling spicy!
blouse: Target // pants: Francesca’s // shoes: gift
3. But what do I do with all those summer dresses? For a long time, I never knew what to do with my summer wardrobe once fall crept around. In fact, most of my pieces hibernated for the winter time until I could show them off with a little skin. Enter: the sweater. Thrown on top of a lazy summer dress, it’s an instant two outfits in one.
sweater: Marshall’s // dress: Old Navy // jewelry: Old Navy // boots: gift (what can I say, my mom likes shoes)
ps. None of these retailers have any idea who I am. I just like their clothing and enjoy showing off some of their threads!
