Fall Fashion Pin-Spiration: Use Pinterest to Help You Find Your Fall Style

It’s September again! My birthday month, the beginning of fall, and (hopefully) the promise of cooler weather ahead. I love all things fall–the weather, colors, fashion, scents, and flavors. However, I do not approve of Starbucks launching PSLs in August. I’m not even really a fan of pumpkin spice flavored things, but if you are–I forbid you from eating/drinking anything pumpkin spice until at least October 1st. Ok, not forbid but I just can’t get behind it yet when it’s still 100 degrees in Oklahoma.

Enough rambling, Amy.

I really look forward to fall fashion/style and usually can’t wait to pull out my cardigans, sweaters, and comfy layers. One tool that I use a lot, to find specific looks at the beginning of a season, is Pinterest. You can type in a style or piece that you’re looking for and so many visual results appear and provide inspiration–or “Pin-spiration” as I like to call it, haha!

Today I’m sharing with you some of my fall “Pin-spiration” and some styles that I’m really into this season.

LONG CARDIGANS

 

Cardigans are my ESSENTIALS in the fall. They are so easy to throw on with jeans, work wear, dresses/skirts, and they are so comfy. I love wearing long cardigans when traveling as well because it’s almost like you’re wearing a warm blanket.

BOOTS

 

I used to wear only riding boots in the fall but I’ve been really into ankle boots the last couple of years. Ankle boots are another item that can easily be paired with so many things and looks. Chelsea boots and boots with detail are my favorite looks.

JEWEL TONE COLORS

 

I typically wear exclusively black, grey, navy, and other neutral colors but in the fall I feel more adventurous with wearing color. I love deep blue, red, green, yellow, or any other jewel tone color in the colder months. I have a mustard yellow scarf in my closet that I can’t wait to wear.

COATS

 

I think that Kate Middleton has had a huge influence with fashion coat trends and I’m all for it. Coats are now made in so many colors, textures, and are way more stylish than puffer/ski coats. I think a coat is a great way to finish an outfit/look and it also keeps you staying warm in style!

SheIn Haul: Is it Worth the Hype?

**This post contains affiliate links. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

If you’re on any form of social media, I’m sure you’ve seen advertisements for SheIn. I heard about SheIn several months ago but didn’t think it would be worth purchasing anything from the site. However, the more I heard about it and saw other bloggers posting about their purchases–I wanted to give it a try. SheIn has SO many items in the way of fashion, shoes, accessories, home, men’s clothing, and children’s clothing. There is also such an array of pricing and almost everything I’ve seen is very affordable.

There are a few things you will probably want to know before ordering, and then I’ll show you the items I purchased. First, not all sizing is consistent with normal sizing. Make sure you look at the sizing measurements before you purchase them. Secondly, there are free shipping and returns on orders you spend a certain amount. I love it especially when sites have free returns. Thirdly, there are coupons available for your first purchase, if you sign up through email, and even cash back options if you have an Ebates account. And fourthly, the company warehouse is overseas, so it may take a week or so before your shipment arrives.

Let’s dive into the haul!

I was wanting a few casual items for summer and also a couple of swimsuit options, and those were things I specifically looked for. Although there were way more things I really wanted to try on, I kept it to just a few, haha!

75ed7dc1-55f0-4b20-99a0-5a20ccc5d17e

I love the texture of this sweater! Yes, I know I bought a sweater in the summer–but I thought it was cute and it would be a nice layering piece for by the pool, or something. Even though it’s been close to, or over, 100 degrees in Oklahoma, I still seem to get cold. Plus, this will be a really nice piece to wear in the fall. I bought this in a size Medium. I will be keeping this item.

9828142c-6ef3-4719-8b17-7ffc2e2670c5

How cute is this! One-piece swimsuits have really come a long way. I bought this in a size Medium and love how this looks with a little bit of a tan. I will be keeping this item.

5acdd537-ff5f-47b7-8fe0-9881151c6ca6

This two-piece is also super adorable and each piece has the perfect amount of coverage. This is a size Medium and I will be keeping this item.

5ab47813-2e1d-40c8-a98c-1015c2ff5d5a

I really wanted some casual t-shirts to wear that weren’t plain grey…because let me tell you–I have way more grey shirts than I need. I love how comfy and soft this shirt is and that it’s loose fitting. This is in a Medium and I will be keeping it. And yes, Sundays are more than good for the soul.

0d7131b8-aee4-4597-92c5-85deee280dca

This is the item that I am MOST excited about. If you know me then you’ll know that sometimes I randomly say “bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica” for no reason. Who else can’t get enough of The Office?? This shirt is also super comfy, a little over-sized, and comes in a bunch of different colors. This is a size Medium and of course I’m keeping it.

So my thoughts all in all? Yes, SheIn is definitely worth the hype and I recommend that you order from there if you’re needing some items for your wardrobe. I might just have to order a few things when fall comes around…

Airport Outfit Go-Tos

People watching is one of my favorite things to do at the airport because you get to hear where people are coming from/going to, hear different accents, and observe a variety of airport clothing styles. I’ve seen some looks that I will remember, for sure! When it comes to traveling, making sure I’m comfortable in the clothes I’m wearing is a must. I tend to wear the same things on travel days so there’s not a whole lot of variety (or color for that matter, haha!) but here are some of my go-to looks for travel days. I haven’t linked these items in this post because some of them are old or I’ve already mentioned them–but these pieces can be found in so many similar brands that it should be super easy to duplicate these looks.

If you’ve known me for a while then you know I just really like to wear black. No, I don’t have a dark soul but I do think that black is classy and can go with pretty much anything. Also, I occasionally spill things during flights and so it’s nice to wear things that don’t show stains, haha! I think that an all black outfit is really easy to throw on if you’re rushing around. A printed sneaker is also really cute with an all black outfit!

I really like this olive jacket because it’s still a neutral color and can go with so many things, while still adding in a little bit of color. This sweater has also been so many places with me and I love how it’s oversized and soft. Throw these two things on with a pair of jeans or skinny pants and it’s a great go-to outfit. I also like these shoes because they are so easy to put on and off, especially for going through security.

Leggings are the best for traveling because they are so soft and comfortable. I also think you can get away with wearing them as long as you have a long shirt or jacket to go with them. I think that a hoodie, a grey t-shirt, and leggings are a great combination for so many types of travel.

What to Wear for Valentine’s Day if You’re a Neutral Style Lover

It’s Valentine’s week! No matter if you’re married, in a relationship, single, etc.–there are so many people you can show love to and things you can celebrate! Whatever your week looks like and the things you might have planned, I’ve put together some outfits to help you decide what to wear. However, I typically do not wear colors like red, purple, or pink–everything in my closet is pretty much grey, black, navy, olive, and stripes. I have recently found a few pieces of clothing, though, that I’ve integrated into my wardrobe to provide a bit more color. I also used ASOS for the first time not long ago and I was really impressed by their selection and range of price points! If you are a neutral style lover, like me, here are some ways you can dress for Valentine’s Day–without having to wear a lot of the traditional colors. I am, also, pretty much a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl–so these outfits are more on the casual side but can be dressed up easily. Enjoy!

*Oh, and I’d like to introduce the hair chop! I’m still getting used to short hair, it’s been forever since it’s been this short. Any styling tips are welcomed!

Some of these items are still on sale! I wore these slides in California and received so many complements about them! I think these are a perfect statement piece for wearing color when you don’t typically wear bright colors.
