In true NC Mountain weather fashion, there seems to be a sort of summer revival happening around here. Though I had finally switched to heating my house last week, I have just as quickly had to switch it back to AC! But it’s all okay in my eyes because this sudden burst of warmth is only proving to postpone the end to this beautiful season. It’s as if the sun and the trees conspired to stay frozen in their half yellow / half orange picturesque glory with a few short days of summer heat. For me this meant trading in my big sweaters for a sweater tee and bearing bare legs! I’ll allow it…. for now.

Let me be the 15034283th person you see today to say I am SO happy it’s October! Pretty much everyone loves fall, I get it, but you really can’t say it’s all that mysterious of a concept… It is simply the best and I’m glad everyone loves it as much as I do. While I may not be sipping on PSL’s from starbucks every day (not vegan FYI!), I definitely go FULL ON FALL with my personal style. Bring on all the oxford shirts, knee socks and berets! (Let’s just pretend like I don’t actually wear those things year round, k?)

Point is, I have a bit of a 365/year fall fashion mindset so once October actually hits I finally wake up and feel JUST RIGHT. For me, this is when creativity is abundant, inspiration is everywhere, and life is sweet.

OOTD: ruby wine & sky blue


My backyard is so overgrown and lush right now it feels like a fairy tale every time I step outdoors! I was inspired amongst the twisty vines and secret-garden-esque greenery when coordinating my outfit today and wanted to shoot for a more timeless colors and accessories. Ruby and sky blue is my absolute favorite combination right now. It’s unique while remaining relatively neutral and has such a classic feel to it. This Miss Patina swan blouse and American Apparel corduroy skirt were a perfect match.
