Hi beauties!  Who says that bright colors are only reserved for the summer and spring?  You can absolutely pull off wearing these brights in the fall!  So, whats the secret?

These are a few of my personal tips, but are by no means set rules!  Rock this look however you like. (:

Tip #1: Wear a dark colored top.  It doesn’t have to be black, just choose something that isn’t colorful.  If you are wearing dark colored pants, wear a bright colored top.

Tip #2: Don’t go overboard!  A pop of color here and there makes enough of a statement.  There’s no need to go crazy!  It will take away from the drama that your one or two colorful pieces add.

Tip #3: If you are wearing bright colored pants and a scarf like mine, I would personally go with either a black or neutral purse and shoes.  Adding too much color will become overload and it will take away from your “fall” look.  Additionally, steer clear of too many patterns.

Tip #4: Don’t be afraid to rock some bright nails with this look!  Matching the nails with one of your accessories will make for a very pulled together look.

Hi loves! (:  Burgundy pants are such a great change from wearing jeans all the time.  I got mine from Who.A.U.  I’ll put the link down below since I don’t know how many of you have it at your mall!  Since it’s getting cooler I purchased this cute half sweatshirt jean jacket from Forever 21 and I’m so glad I did.  It’s the perfect outerwear piece for those days when I want to be casual and comfortable.  Especially because fall whether usually isn’t quite cold enough for a heavy coat, I love the jean and leather jackets for this season.

What’s great about this look, is that it’s for those days when you don’t feel like throwing together something elaborate.  The burgundy pants make the outfit look fashionable, yet your comfortable and it was easy to put together.

Sidenote – This is the first time that I am rocking my new Sperry Top-Siders!  This is my first time purchasing a pair of Sperrys and I love them.  In my opinion, they are the perfect addition to this casual vibe.

Hi loves!  Let me start by saying I love the gingham trend this fall!  This shirt is incredibly versatile and I’m sure you will be seeing several different outfit combinations of mine using it throughout the year.

For this outfit, I chose to wear it under a vest.  I definitely would love to invest in a few more vests this season because they really do add some extra style to any shirt.  Another lovely addition to the gingham look?  Pearls!  Pearls look so pretty against gingham.  I love anything classic, so pearls are one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.

Hi loves!  I’m back at university for the year, but no worries, I will still have tons of fashion, beauty, DIY and etc. posts for you guys!  Let me just start by saying I used to hate fall clothing.  I was such a summer clothes kind of girl for the longest time.  Rompers, dresses and skirts are such a go-to for me.  However, in recent years I have discovered that fall is actually one of the most fashionable seasons of all.  The opportunities for layering are endless.  A simple jean and t-shirt become instantly glam with a scarf and a cute hat.  Boots come in so many styles now that it’s impossible to own just one pair.  

This season i plan to show you the power of fall fashion.  It is amazing how many different combinations can be made with a simple gingham shirt or a big midi skirt like the one I’m wearing in today’s post.  In this big personal closet of inspiration we share (a.k.a. this blog) I hope you find something to take with you and have your most chic season yet! (:

Just a quick side note- Bloglovin’ and Tumblr have reconciled their differences and Tumblr has officially unblocked Bloglovin’!  (Thank goodness right?)

As for my outfit, I love the midi skirt trend for this fall!  It is such an amazing piece to add to your closet.  Not only does it stand out, but you get the instant retro Audrey Hepburn kind-of-look which is always timeless.  A great tip for wearing button down shirts with skirts is to tie a small knot at the bottom of your shirt.  Leave one to two buttons unbuttoned before tying your knot.  I find that this ends up looking much better than tucking things in.  Also, its way easier!  Pair with heels or flats and your good to go!

Midi Skirt: H&M

Top: Kohl’s

Scarf: Ann Taylor

Before I go, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the new followers on both Tumblr and Instagram!  Welcome to our shared closet. (:

Hi there!  I can’t believe I leave to start my third year of college in less than a week.  Sadly, this will be the last summer post on my blog! ):  My school is in a very windy area so unfortunately it gets chilly very fast.  I’ll be in jeans practically as soon as school starts. However, that’s great because we are all already in fall clothes buying mode anyway being that back to school time is here.  Personally, I’m very excited to get working on a variety of fall outfits for you guys.  Side note, who else is so excited that the “PSL” otherwise known as the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks came back starting August 25th!  Obviously, it’s very early for them to start bringing this back, but I love fall themed flavors and especially anything pumpkin.
