Hot Air Balloon Festival Outfit

Up up up & awayyy… November is just flying by!


I can’t believe next week is Thanksgiving?! It always amazes me when reflecting back just how fast time seems to go. A few weeks back I witnessed the beautiful mass accession of a dozen hot air balloons and it was simply breathtaking. They soared gracefully through the blissful blue skies. I was enchanted by the playful scene as I watched the balloons paint the plain skies with vibrant pops of colors and various fun patterns. They continue to float on to their final destination with a sense of carefreeness – a lost of distraction and time but still guided by the wind.


What I Wore:

My outfit was very much inspired by the season’s color palette of burgundy leaves and rustic twigs. My nomadic tribal print poncho blanket embodied the free spirit vibe of the celebration. Though it was a loose fitting layer, it still provided a flattering effortless chic shape. The fringe tassel detailing also added another stylish boho element to the overall look. Perhaps the best part is the fact that I thrifted this staple F21 item for $12 dollars (talk about a steal!) . To complete my whole outfit, I paired it with comfy distressed denim jeans and a cozy knit sweater. So even though chilly days are in the forecast ahead – I hope you guys don’t always have to compromise on some fun fall fashion! ~b

End of Summer Maxi Dress

Dress – American Eagle / Sandals – Steve Madden

Where does the time go? I can’t believe summer is coming to an end! I am dreading it…colder weather and I just don’t get along (although we have tried in the past). I’m just a flip-flop-all-year-long type of gal. But I have to admit , fall fashion and all the festivities is something I am looking forward to. For now though, I’m just going to enjoy the last rays of sunshine in this flowy maxi dress. It is more muted with earthy tones and the rustic/burnt floral pattern gives off a vintage boho vibe. These elements combined make it a transitional piece from summer to fall. I purchased the “dress” from American Eagle but it’s actually a maxi skirt that happens to fit me as an ankle length dress (#shortgirlprobs). I love the elegance of long dresses but have a hard time finding ones that do not swallow my petite frame. That’s why this skirt works as a dress, it comes in more size options and you can always belt it like I did to make it more fitted. Hope this tip helps one of you shorties out there! Talk to you soon! ~b
