To my lovely cousin Brandon–and my soon-to-be cousin-in-law–I love you both so much and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to take your photos! I can’t wait for the wedding. You two are beautiful people, inside and out.
I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but today is the start of fall–and well, I have to celebrate in my most fall outfit. The “Stanford” sweater is actually vintage! It belonged to my mom in the 80′s. The lace0side leggings (I don’t get to wear these nearly enough, btw) are from Papaya. The cute collared hearts piece was supposed to be a dress–but it totally shrank. Yes, again with my ELF Cheerful Cherry lipstick. It really is my fall favorite.
Even though the Fall Equinox is today, I don’t feel like fall has really set in. It’s definitely starting to creep around the corner, but I’m still holding out for 60 and 70 degree temps. Enough of this heat already! (But don’t come for a while, Winter.)
But, regardless of if we like it, the seasons are changing. Whether you pronounce it “Ee-quinox” or “Eh-quinox,” let’s remember to come together at this Season of Thankfulness–and let’s just all get along, okay?!
I refused to go to school today. But this is the last day I’m letting myself slack off. I’m going to go to my class tomorrow and get back into the habit of doing quality work. Although I hate being sick, it’s really reminded me how frustrating it is to be unproductive.
Added some nutmeg and whipped cream, although my whipped cream is out–or I would’ve made it prettier.
After classes, I had a moment of spontaneity and decided to drive through Provo Canyon all the way out to the other side. It was beautiful! I was hoping to see more fall colors, but what I did see was beautiful and the breeze alone was heavenly.
It was awesome to experience the beauty of summer ending and fall starting. Some of the places in that canyon look like they come straight out of a fairytale.

I’m a big online shopper. Asos.com is my absolute favorite online store right now. They are originally a UK only store, but now they are available online for free shipping to the US!! The style of clothes they have is 100% different than anything you could buy at Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe. Which is a great thing. Especially since their website is way easier to navigate.
If I had an extra $500 laying around, I’d spend it on the following outfits. Since I don’t have that much, or any money, laying around, I’m going to dream and maybe buy one piece at a time for the rest of my life.
Outfit #1: Knit dress (Fairisle by Asos) with tights (by Asos) and boots (Liebrecht by Aldo) is always a classic. The tights make for a wonderful twist! The total for the outfit is around $145.
By no means am I completely saying goodbye to summer, but I have been thinking a lot about what look I’m going to go with for fall. I can just imagine the hayrides and corn mazes and hot chocolate! I wanted to go a little bit more dramatic and opted for a cherry lip and dark purple eye. It’s just a step lighter than smokey, which I love! I also put my hair in a side pony tail and just barely curled the ends with my straightener.
Is it me or does it seem like you have to work a lot harder in the colder seasons to look good? In summer, you can just look as natural as can be because the sun does all the work.
