The Power of Plaid

It’s finally feeling like fall, friends! Whoop whoop! Are you taking this cooler weather in your stride, perhaps going on walks in the crunching leaves or breaking out your coziest of sweaters? Maybe you’re even sipping a warm latte, wrapped up in a plaid scarf, which leads me on to the topic of this week’s post!

Of all the fall trends that accompany the changing trees and falling leaves, I have to admit that plaid, tartan, or check my might be favorite. With it comes with a very British association from things like Burberry’s iconic pattern, traditional Scottish kilts, Vivienne Westwood’s designs, and London punk rockers. Plus, I just love the fact that tartan originated in Scotland and each different pattern represented a different clan. It’s such a cool and interesting start to a pattern’s history unlike any other’s.

Corduroy's Big Comeback

Sorry this post is a tab late! How are you all doing this week? Have you been up to anything exciting this past weekend? Comment down below if you’ve been on any exciting adventures, seen any good Netflix series, or gotten some much needed things completed.

For this week’s post, I wanted to talk about one of this season’s biggest trends, corduroy! While it comes around every fall/winter season, it seems to be making an even bigger comeback this year and in some new and interesting ways! I’ve seen corduroy in more colors, styles, and shapes than I’ve ever imagined and I’m kind of loving it! I don’t have a love of corduroy pieces yet myself, but the few bits I do have, like this dress from Zara, are keeping me warm and stylish! I’ve come up with a few tips for rocking corduroy your own way!

3 Things I've Learned Being a Personal Stylist

I can’t believe another week has come and gone again! I swear these weeks are flying by. Have you been up to anything exciting this weekend? Comment down below if you have! I’ve been going on autumnal walks, drinking hot chocolate, and hanging out with my lovely fam. I am missing my mom, dad, and pups though! This autumnal weather is really making me want to baking some thing pumpkin flavor and watch Halloween movies!

For this week’s post, since I haven’t had a chance to get any outfit photos, I thought I’d talk to you guys about my job and some of the things I’ve learned while doing it! Many of you might not know, but I’ve been working part-time as an online personal stylist for a Google owned company called, Tailor! I’ve been working for Tailor since last November, so it’s almost been a year now and I’ve really enjoyed it! I’ve also learned a lot about styling other people and really making them feel happy with their own personal style.

My First Fashion Week

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, but I HAVE to tell you about this past weekend!! Last weekend was honestly the BEST. WEEKEND. OF. MY. LIFE. If you didn’t already know, last weekend was London Fashion Week and I was lucky enough to be right in the thick of it with the company I’m interning with, HPR London. I can’t even explain to you the excitement I felt, but I’m going to try in this post! After reading, if you have questions about my first real fashion week experience, don’t hesitate to put it down below, because there’s no way I can cover everything just in this little post. (Also I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to upload last weekend, but I think fashion week is a pretty good excuse!)

Second-Hand Summer Outfit

How has your week been? I've had another London packed week I must admit and I'm feeling to lucky to be here experiencing this. While walking around running errands for my internship, I stumbled upon some really amazing vintage and second-hand shops in the Shoreditch area! It reminded me of this gorgeous, Gianni Bini dress I found for a steal, second-hand at my old work, Style Encore Conway, which is a gently-used women's clothing shop! ( I miss that place and my work pals so so much and finding amazing steals!) In this post I wanted to talk about the benefits of shopping second-hand, vintage, or consignment clothes for both your own wallet and the planet!

Good Things Come to Those Who GO

I hope you've all had a great week and weekend. I've finished my first week of my internship, and I have to admit, it was a great week! So many exciting things happen in such a short period of time, so I am also quite exhausted haha. 

Today, as inspired by a quote I recently heard, I wanted to talk about why I've decided to GO this year instead of waiting around for my life to happen and why you should GO too! (This will be my little cliché words-of-encouragement post.)
