About to watch Riverdale Season 2!!!
Fall is my favorite season, it always has been. I loved the crisp leaves and the cool fall breeze. I cant be the only one who was obsessed with going back to school, especially back to school shopping. Fall is such a great time which is why I made sure I get married in the fall. I love fall so much I had to write a whole post about it.
I’m sharing the 5 reasons why I love fall and why you should too.
Fall is a gateway season into the Holidays
I am a total sucker for the holidays. I love spending time with those that I love and I feel people are usually the nicest during the prequel to Thanksgiving and Christmas.But let’s be honest Halloween is the best. Hocus Pocus anyone.
Fall fashion is the coziest
Don’t get me wrong the summer is great and all, but I hate sweating. I like my body temperature to be at a nice comfortable temperature. Which is why I love fall weather. The weather is cool and breezy and you can layer up as much as you need to, to have the ideal body temp. I have linked a few of my favorite fall trends. (all from TJ Maxx)
Time to start fresh
I always associate Fall as a time to start fresh maybe its because I spent 17 years of my life in school. every fall we start a brand new school year, which I have ingrained in my mind that fall is the start of a new school year or a time to start fresh.
Fun Fall activities
I haven’t been able to do a lot of the #basic fall activities that I want to do, but this weekend I will partake in a mini shopping spree for my new job that I start on Monday. Here are all the fall activities I want to partake in.
- carving or painting pumpkins
- apple picking
- corn maze and/or haunted house
- classic scary movies
- binge-watching Season 2 of Stranger Things on 10.27
- spending time with my fiance

I’m, not a fashion blogger or a food blogger or any niche. Whew glad I got that out there. Now that doesn’t mean I hate fashion or food because all my money usually goes to food and clothes anyway. But I was writing a fashion blog post and it didn’t feel like me, it felt fake or forced. I felt that I needed to say this for myself. I have been on this journey on what it is I want to write about and sadly I haven’t quite found it yet. But that doesn’t mean I need to give up, I’m going to keep on chugging. I chose lifestyle blogger because I felt it best describes me. I love sharing my life with others. You can usually find me oversharing too much with people I barely know, and then later regretting oversharing with complete strangers. But if I am going to be a blogger, it is totally fine for me to overshare my life with others. With this whole new outlook on my blog/brand. I do plan on doing a bit of rebranding or actually branding in the first place.
I notice that a lot of lifestyle bloggers usually are mostly fashion + lifestyle bloggers. And I was thinking I must be too. I only thought that because I love fashion just as much as anything so it only made sense for me to write about it. But then I began writing about it and it just did not feel right. That does not mean I won’t ever post about an awesome pair of boots or dress I love because I will. I’m realizing what I enjoy posting on my blog and what I don’t.

The internet is oversaturated with lifestyle bloggers and I get that. But that doe not mean I cant join them. I am completely different than the thousand other lifestyle bloggers in Chicago. I have my own unique view and voice that no one else has. So this is a quick and short post but I am going to stick to my subheader and brand myself as a creative lifestyle blogger. No, I’m not going to be showing you how to do the next greatest craft. But I can assure you that my content will be unique and different and honestly me. I have never been one to stick to one thing or one niche. I like many things and I enjoy dabbling into new and exciting avenues. I am even thinking of getting back into photography.
To conclude this blog post that honestly doesn’t make any sense. Be ready to hear more from the blog. I will be ramping up my content and I will be changing it up a bit to align up well with me. I do not have a niche and that is okay because I’m not that kind of girl.

Hey, guys, I don’t know about you but I’m so excited that Chicago finally decided to join the fall gang. I am so over that unnecessary heat wave. And I’m ready to cozy up with lots of scarves and blankets and spiders am I cute adorable dog and fiance. But this sort of isn’t a fall-related post.
Guys it has been over a year and your girl and your boy have finally picked a wedding date and venue! We are literally getting married a year from last weekend 9.29.18. So put it in your calendars and mark it as the best day ever, because it will be next year for me.
But I’m so excited for my wedding next year and to be walking down the aisle in all white I thought I’d do the most taboo thing I could ever do in style to pull off an off the shoulder look in all white. Yes, you heard me. Fashion has no boundaries and I plan on pushing them.
What I am wearing is this off the shoulder white dress I got from the Nordstrom rack sale I haven’t worn yet but I’ve been waiting for it to get cool outside so I can wear it and I think this is a perfect fall look. I paired it with my trusty brown leather booties (I got these 2 years ago from Cole Haan) and that is it. I totally would add a denim jacket if I needed more warmth. I have linked similar styles down below. I love keeping things cute and simple, when you are wearing such a pretty white off the shoulder dress like this, I feel like you don’t need to accessorize with it unless that is your style, then by all means accessorize.
Here I am rocking this off the shoulder dress in essentially my porch area!
I found some similar options that I have posted down below. Enjoy!
