Blue Ridge is famous for its brilliant fall foliage, and for good reasons – it’s absolutely stunning! I have been to Blue Ridge a few times in the summer months but never in autumn. Though not a huge fan of the colder weather in the mountains, the view from Rough Ridge Overlook was spectacular! I was able to witness the sea of trees in ripple waves ofwildfire colors. The forest was ignited with crimson red and fiery yellow in the most picturesque way. Although fall is nearing its last fallen leaf, if you ever get the chance to head south for autumn, I highly recommend checking out Blue Ridge 🙂 ! ~b
Today’s the last day of November, which means Christmas is on the way! I still have sooooo much fall-related content to edit so I apologize that it might not synchronize with the ever changing-season. However, there’s some amazing photography that I couldn’t pass up posting! So stay tuned!
What I love most about fall is how nature inspires fashion. The fall foliage brings out wine red, golden yellow, and rustic browns into our wardrobe. Emerald green is also one of those exquisite colors. It’s elegant and has a way of refining an outfit. (Also, I personally think it looks great with dark hair!) I see this color a lot during the holiday season so you can easily transition this look into the upcoming winter. For this crisp fall morning, I layered my emerald green top with a herringbone quilted vest to create a stylish cold-weather outfit. Pairing it with dark-wash jeans and black leather riding boots completes the outdoorsy yet sophisticated look. ~b
Happy Cyber Monday everyone! Today marks a rare occasion where a Monday isn’t so dreadful – ha! I hope you all had a lovely holiday break with loved ones this weekend. I actually went back to my hometown for a few days. My boyfriend came along to meet my parents as well 🙂 . I’m almost certain that we both gained a solid 5 lbs with all the food my mum fed us with, but it was worth it because home cooked meals are simply the best!
Before we ventured back to Ohio to eat our hearts out, we did a spontaneous photo shoot (my brother helped too!). Living in the South means fall comes a little bit later so we were still able to capture these beautiful vibrantyellow leaves. The fall foliage was the perfect backdrop because it really made my blue demin jacket popped. Overall, this is one of my favorite fall outfit and therefore my go-to. It is seriously so easy to throw on and makes you look like you kind-ofhave your life together. Keyword: kind of. In all seriousness though, you can never go wrong with a pair of basic black leggings, causal demin jacket, plain white sweater, and comfy ankle booties. Layering it with a classical plaid scarf helps pull the ensemble together. My go-to fall outfit is down-to-earth and comfortable making it ideal for any cozy fall day. ~b
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
