What I’ve Been Wearing for Fall

Nov 12, 2014 comments   

I haven’t done a wardrobe update since summer. Now it’s nearing the end of autumn and I’ve been talking a lot about mixing in pastels for winter on my Tumblr. Usually I’m all black and white for winter but after looking at what I’ve been wearing for fall I can see why I might be ready for a little change.

This isn’t really everything but a good sample because I actually have 2 pairs of black denim, and 2 black tees and another white tee I’m wearing. So really it’s about as capsule wardrobe as I’ve ever been because I have a lot of very similar pieces.

Everything is from Madewell except the leather style jacket and shoes which I got from Nordstrom’s. I haven’t been able to get out much this past 2 months so majority of these I bought online. It’s a lot easier to shop a store like Madewell because I’m familiar with their sizing. The free shipping and easy returns help too though I haven’t had to return anything from them in so long.


The polish on the right is what I’ve been wearing most. Called Stairway to Heaven. It’s gorgeous and feels like a light color to go with to contrast all the black. It’ll also work with what I’m leaning towards for winter which is a lot of black and white paired with soft blushes of blue and pink. My new winter coat is actually a muted blush color and no longer black. With my mood being very down this fall I want to work in some uplifting color palettes.

Getting Ready for Fall

Aug 14, 2014 comments   

I’m over summer. Not in a rude way but the mornings are cooler, the flowers are wilting, and most days the humidity is gone. I don’t fool myself into believing I’ll love my summer style into autumn. Once my mind has made up that summer is passing I begin to feel strange wearing bright shades. These past few weeks have been filled with Back-to-School sales and collaborative promotions at Madewell. Much of their autumn line is already on the hangers and took advantage of the discounts.

I ended up getting a mix of summer and autumn. So instead of pairing a light blue shirt with my light wash denim I’ll opt for these deep plum soft as a bunny “sateen” jeans.

I thought this skirt would be much too long on me (I’m 5′1″) but it’s not! The length still works really really well and the fabric gives the structured skirt a soft look.

The gingham workshirt is also another favorite of mine. Madewell brought out a new cut this season that features the relaxed look of a popover but with the functionality of a button-up. Honestly I loathe popovers because of the lack of buttons so seeing these made me SO HAPPY. The cut runs bigger than their previous workshirts too. I hope they bring more colors and patterns out in this style.

I love this shirt. Usually oversized boxy cuts + large chest creates a potato sack feeling but this shirt folds just right so that it’s this airy look without looking like you’re just wearing a tent.

skinny skinny jeans: biker-zip edition

I really like how the zippers break-up the black space of these.

Heaven. No really, these are incredibly soft. I’m interested to see how durable they turn out to be.

Madewell is doing a new promotion now where if you bring in any old denim you get $20 off a pair of new denim. I think it lasts until October :)
