Gypsy Rose


(Cleobella Gyspy Rose Tunic, Urban Outfitters Thigh High Socks, Barney's New York Boots (Similar), Free People Vegan Sherpa Moto Jacket)

One of the main reasons I hate colder months is because I hate wearing pants. Seriously, with the exception of skorts and rompers, you'd have to go back pretty far on my blog to find a picture of me wearing pants. I have nothing against pants, I'm just more of a dresses and skirts kind of girl. Therefore, I've been wearing the heck out of my thigh high socks (I also have a pair of thigh boots on their way to me, no shame). Tall socks and boots make it easy to turn a more summery dress into a fall appropriate one. Plus, I like to prolong the need for tights as long as possible.

Free

(Dress From Local Shop Mojave)

What does the word "Free" mean to you?
 A day without any plans, a long drive with no destination, a wide open field, that moment when your hair catches the breeze, the vast blue ocean, or maybe a makeup-less face? Free is one of my favorite words because each person has their own definition and their own images that the word evokes.

Free, to me, is bravery.
The ability to live your life without worry of judgement from others or the need to fit in. The ability to love yourself more than you love anyone else. The ability to be unapologetically you and smile at the thought.
To me, that is what it means to truly be free.

Create Yourself

(David Lerner Dress, Umgee Fold Over Trouser Jacket, Barneys New York Booties (Similar), Kate Spade Owl Purse, Free People Bolo Necklace)

Every day I feel like I'm still trying to figure out exactly who I am and who I want to be. I try to trust my gut, follow my heart, and not overthink but sometimes thats just impossible. When this feeling of uncertainty starts to wash over me I try to remind myself of one of my favorite quotes....

"Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself."

Sometimes when life is happening all around us we forget that no matter what is being thrown at you, you are the only person in control of your life. Who you are, is whoever you choice to be.

Spellbound


The best thing for your soul when your feeling uninspired is to go out and find something to inspire you. You can't sit around and wait for your mind to go to a beautiful place, you have to take it there. This whole week I just sat around looking at all of these beautiful images of beautiful people doing beautiful things and I felt sorry for myself because that wasn't my life. I was running straight from class to work and back to class again all week long and as you can imagine I wasn't feeling so glamorous. However come sunday when I had the whole day off and to myself I decided it was time to inspire myself. I got all dressed up in beautiful clothing and ran off to forest with my handsome boyfriend to take these pictures. I must say, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

Seasons



Obviously, I'm not giving up my little white dress obsession just because the seasons have changed. Pairing the dress with a knit duster and a wide brim felt hat helped me transform the dress from a more summer oriented piece to a knows-no-season dress. I got so excited when I saw this pictures because I just loved how the bright red accents in my outfit compliment the gorgeous leaf covered grounds. This outfit just screams Fall to me!
