A PRESENT PALETTE

I can’t believe October is over. This month was a especially crazy, with adjusting to my new city and getting a grasp on my new job. It just felt like there was no time to slow down and just enjoy the fresh air and the walk from the office to my car—the little things. For the month of November, I vow to take some time to be present, and enjoy the moment. In terms of my wardrobe, I’ve been wearing out my dark wash denim skinny jeans and it’s getting tired. My standard fall color palette needed a boost, which is why these powder gray gap jeans are the perfect inclusion to my monotonous closet. I paired them with my trusted chambray shirt and with it being coat season, layered on my treasured cocoon in sandstone.  This was the color palette I needed to get me out of my fall wardrobe funk. It’s refreshing, and breaks up the expected fall color combos. Make some bold statements this season, whether it’s as small as purchasing a  pair of lighter wash jeans than your used to, or you’re venturing far outside your comfort zone–go bold. Oh, and don’t forget to take time to be present and enjoy the moment–you never get it back.

FALL IN CHECK

DSC_0159 editedDSC_0164 editedDSC_0131DSC_0181 editedDSC_0174editedDSC_0228 editedDetails: Round neck wool check top c/o YOINS, here | J.Crew Toothpick corduroys in sea salt,  here | Primark suede wedge booties, similar here |

The cold weather is finally beginning, and I know that chunky sweaters are a viable option but there are also some great alternatives to a cozy knit. This wool check top is a new favorite of mine from YOINS, it’s reasonably priced and well fitted. The side slit zippers add some edge, while the traditional ‘all american’ check print, make it a prepster’s dream. It’s a bit on the shorter side, which I prefer, so if you do consider purchasing this, bear that in mind and perhaps go one size larger. I paired it with my favorite cords, but it can be worn just as seamlessly with a skirt. And, if you’re on the hunt for good quality clothing at affordable prices, YOINS is your best bet. They have a variety of clothing, all on-trend and seriously inexpensive–there’s something for everyone.
