Falling in Love with Fall.

Hello Fashionistas,

I’m happy to report that fall is officially here!  It always takes me a couple weeks to let the cooler weather sink in.  Anyway, today we will be diving into one of my fall looks. In my next post, I will show you how I transform into my #retromodern self (I’m making this post short and sweet).  As always I love showing you how to be retro with a modern twist.  Without further ado, I give you my falling for the fall look.

How to get my fun and simple look!

Top: I this simple chic top on clearance at Khols (one of my favorite places to shop) The top is from Vera Wang’s Simply Vera Vera Collection. Here are a couple updated options to choose from: Gray Ruched Top and her Floral Applique Tee.

Skirt: I wore a navy blue linen skirt which is a must-have! With this outfit, I kept most of my outfit neutral but added some funky leggings with a bright necklace.  I found a super cute navy blue linen skirt on Etsy for $40. If you wanted a more bodycon shorter skirt, go with the one I found on Forever21!

Leggings: There are so many fun prints to chose from when you wear neutral colors. I found some adorable floral leggings from Zulily. Need more inspo? Check out my modern style board on Pinterest.

Jacket: Okay, so I’m not wearing a jacket in my photos but I absolutely live in my denim jacket (this is a closet must-have!) in the fall.  I’ve had my current one for a while now, (I think got mine at Khols) I prefer a medium wash denim one but it’s up to you. American Eagle has an awesome selection.

Necklace: I found my retro bright pink pearl necklace on Etsy. I found a similar one here on Esty. Gorgeous darling!

Bracelet: My bracelet is an heirloom from my late Aunt.  You can either get one on eBay, Etsy, or NOVICA (associated with National Geographic) Below is my favorite one!

Well, there you have it, a fun and simple fall look! I hope you got some inspiration for your fall wardrobe. Be sure to look for my post on how I achieved my hair and makeup for this look! Remember to have fun with your outfits and not to take yourself too seriously, which I’m totally guilty of.

Keep smiling, 🙂

End of Summer: Boho Street Style!

Hello Lovelies!

Can you believe summer is coming to an end?? I can’t.  I wanted to blog about the first fashion interview that I’ve been holding onto. I’ve been superstitious about it since I didn’t know how successful writing a fashion blog would be. I know that I still have a lot to learn on how to have a successful blog I am just happy that I have made it this far and will continue to develop my skills.  Two months ago, I met a wonderful woman named Sharon at my local Starbucks, who is a hospice nurse (I think nurses are the best!) and she was gracious enough to let me interview her on the spot.  I love these types of interviews that are spontaneous and are tons of fun!  Enjoy. 🙂

One of my favorite hangouts!

It was a nice summery June day and I decided to get some work done at my local Starbucks. I usually get distracted working at home. I have to admit there are not many coffee shops that I go to that give me the feeling that I should sit and stay awhile. I usually go to the local coffee stand and not even bother with going into a coffee shop to sit down.  But on this particular day, I decided that I wanted to give it another go. I went armed with my laptop and iPhone. The Starbucks I chose has a lot of regulars and is known for holding many business meetings there.  It was particularly crowded and I found a single table with an outlet nearby of course! I started working on changing my Twitter/IG handles to signify my new career venture.  As a sidebar, I have always loved fashion since I was young.  I have fond memories of reading Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and Teen.

I happened to start chatting with a nice older couple and mentioned that I was a fashion blogger who wanted to interview people about their fashion, they said stick around here because there are plenty of fashionable people who frequent here.  I eventually met Sharon, a hospice nurse, a fun-loving and glamorous fashionista.  She graciously let me interview her and share her fashion tips! Below is her chic summery boho outfit.
