My Favorite Fall 2018 Runway Show: Dior

Christian Dior’s Fall 2018 runway show was right up my alley. If I could purchase one outfit, it’d be this one above. The skirt and all of the patchwork in the show is a work of art.

Aside from the fabrics, I’m obsessed with the 60s and 70s influences, the colors, the shoes, the sunglasses, and well, just about everything.

Have a wonderful day!

Love and light

Easy Ways to Wear Three Cute Fall Runway 2018 Trends

There are some seasons you love more than others. It may be your preference in weather or foods or maybe even a connection to a special holiday or your birthday. In my case, a major reason I like fall the best is because I like fall and winter fashion better than spring and summer fashion. I love layers, I love warm tones and rich jeweled tones, and I feel like the clothes is more flattering on me. Overall, I simply feel more comfortable in fall outfits like a turtleneck sweater, jeans, and over the knee boots, over summer outfits such as skimpy rompers. Maybe it’s because I don’t love the constant shaving that takes over my summer. (If you don’t shave, power to you, but I feel the need to be bare when rocking leg baring clothing.)

Here are my three favorite Fall 2018 trends and three easy ways to wear them!

Patchwork

If you’re feeling bold enough, go ahead and don a patchwork denim dress this fall with adorable motorcycle boots for a night out.

If you want an easy way to incorporate a cute patchwork element to your daily wardrobe, pairing a patchwork skirt with a crisp white shirt is an easy option as seen below on Zoey Deutch, below.

This is an outfit I will definitely be copying and wearing on repeat.

Colored Lenses

Again, this is a look I’d wear on repeat. I absolutely love colored lenses and have for a while. I’m very into pink and yellow lenses in particular. I feel like they frame my face well and it’s an interesting departure from your typical lens. These are a few of my favorite above. The simplest way to wear this look would be with either casual attire or a going out outfit. This would be so cute paired with an either all neutral or all black outfit too. It feels like a new, fresh, and super cute way to incorporate color into an otherwise plain and classic fall outfit. Here is an easy and adorable way to wear colored lenses as seen on the blog Takeaim.nu:

Corduroy

Corduroy is a fall classic and I never get sick of seeing it, velvet, and other textured fabrics on the runway. I’m into it.

I love pairing corduroy dresses and skirts with black turtlenecks and tights with boots. Pairing a zippered dress with a short sleeved shirt underneath as seen on the model below, is giving me 90s nostalgia and I’m loving the vibe. I’m totally copying that look.

I hope you’re having fun piecing together your Fall 2018 wardrobe! Are you wearing a lot of the same pieces from last year? Are you buying a whole new wardrobe? Any thoughts on runway trends this year? Some sure were too much on the odd side of the fashion spectrum for me while others were totally me.

Love and light to you all!

Happy Thanksgiving! / Something to be Thankful for

My favorite part of Thanksgiving as a kid was the assortment of desserts on the dessert table. I would want a piece of everything and somehow get away with it as long as I ate all of my dinner, which I didn’t have a problem with either. 

As I grew older I became reflective of the meaning of Thanksgiving as I’m sure many of you did. I began to consciously ponder what I should be thankful for on that day and every day, not just on Thanksgiving. I try to carry that attitude throughout the year even though it’s difficult at times. Nonetheless, I feel thankful today for pumpkin pie, family, and friends, (including all of you), just like I did as a kid.

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Fall in LA

Personally, I love wearing scarves, sweaters, hats, and extra layers. Even though it’s not quite fall/winter weather most of the time in LA, when temperatures drop to even 70-80 I take advantage and wear fall appropriate attire, even if it looks like I’m moving to Alaska. This comic is about people like me vs. their sun loving friends. (Very strange people by the way).

Pining for Cooler Days

I wish it was fall already. Not only do I love living in layers, fall fashion, and fall tones, but I’ve always found fall to be a source of new beginnings for me.

I love everything pumpkin too. 🎃🎃🎃 Halloween has pretty much always been my excuse to dress out of my comfort zone and try something off the wall. Thanksgiving just warms the heart, period. Fall, hurry up. 🍂🍂🍁🍁 What’s your favorite season?
