Pumpkin Spice Lattes are almost here. And honestly, that's only thing other than the September Issues that I like about Fall. Fall fashion is so much more fun than summer for me. While I love being scantily clad and perfectly bronzed, the deeper and earthier tones of autumn speak to my soul. Early fall is truly the best because it's still warm enough to wear shorts but it gets cool enough to layer later on in the day. This look is great for a casual date night getting drinks with your boo. 

What's you favorite season and your favorite thing to wear that season?

Lace and Leather

When I don't know what to wear, I wear black lace. - Carine Roitfeld

I wish I had something witty or insightful to say about why I chose this look and how it makes me feel but that is simply not the case. It was just an unseasonably beautiful day and I thought to myself, "I should attempt dressing like a human being today". Add some red lipstick and a whimsical clutch and BOOM i felt awesome all day despite the fact that my faux leather shorts were sticking to my ass cheek. But my grandmother told me that beauty is pain so I sucked it up and took that leather wedgie like a champ. 

This entire look was on sale so I can't give you links because they are no longer available but I hope you guys get some awesome inspiration from this look!

 

Until next time....

Besos,

On Being An Adult

The word adult should be categorized as a verb...

Patterned Blazer Over Jersey Dress

I don't understand why no one told me how hard adulthood is. Everyday I feel like I'm running: to the gym, to work, running errands, paying bills.  It's rough and I'd be lying if I said that I never fantasize about the college or even high school days. Point blank: they were much easier. Now, when I hear a younger person lament about how much they can't wait to get on their own, I cringe. Because they don't know how awesome they have it.

Wear to Work

Dressing for work can be boring. Give your look some summer spice with bold prints and bright colors...

Some quick tips for styling yourself on a budget:

Shop sales! Sales are constant at stores like Macy's and other department stores.

Don't sleep on discount retailers! As a child, I hated TJ Maxx. It was the most boring store! Now it's my favorite place ever. It's a one stop shop and if you're willing to hunt you can find some real gems.

Thrift It! These sweet old lady earrings were an awesome thrift store find. $8.00! can't beat it.

This look was perfect for a summer day at work. The layers are perfect for any climate situation:  jacket for air conditioned spaces can be removed for an outside lunch. 

The clutch is a bit small and impractical for work but keep it in your car for dinner and drinks after hours.

The only investment piece: MichaelKors Pumps

I know that we're on a budget, but I want to stress the importance of investing in STAPLES! if you want a few trendy pieces, that's fine but keep the cost low. Spend your money on items that will last and can be worn with multiple looks.

I hope you guys enjoy!
