Cozy Fall Accessories

It's been so long since I posted! I promise I do not plan on posting less during the school year. It's kind of you either get quantity or quality with blog posts and I'm still working on that balance. Althought quality seems super important when I'm in design classes during the day.

So while I'm working on that here are some really cute and cozy fall accessories.

A Little Random

This post has some random thoughts and bits, just little blurbs from my life lately.

These are my nails right now, I did them late last night and wanted something funky and bright. It's a blue gradient with gold sparkles on the tip. They are sooo fun and they match my shorts right now. I did the base blue with Pacific Blue from Sally Hansen and the darker blue with Sapphire Siren by Maybelline Color Show, and finally the gold was just "Gold Glitter" from Studio M.

The weather has been so beautiful lately and the cats have been enjoying the open apartment. Mojo always tries to get out, he just loves the outdoors. Opposed to Nemu who's lived outside and knows that home is much better; he never tries to dodge out.

This last picture is in honor of my best friend's birthday! Happy birthday Janelle!! I'm wearing a cupcake shirt just for you. (sorry my face is covered, it was too bright!!)

My Life Lately

I miss the summer with its wide open schedule, but having a routine has actually been a nice change with classes starting. Don't get me wrong, I haven't welcomed the homework.. but I don't loath it either. I'm especially enjoying my cats... and believe me I know how ridiculous that sounds. After coming home from confusing, information filled classes and a busy campus, it is the cutest thing to be greeted by them. I've never had pets (other than goldfish) before, so I think it will be a long time before I get over this.

Rained Out!

I was so proud of myself today! It's the end of my second week of classes and I had to be at work at 7:30am. Rather than roll out of bed and go on campus in my pjs I actually got ready. I straightened my hair, I had a cute outfit on, I did my make up. I was good to go. Except I forgot my umbrella.

And it POURED on my walk back home for lunch. My least favorite part was having to hurry and get dried off to get back for class in an hour.

Can you tell how soaked that shirt/dress is??

Discovered Treasure

I am such a big fan of nail polish that I actually have a couple of polishes that I'm constantly on the lookout for. I mean specific polishes, from specific brands that I want. I always have general colors for the season that I would like to own, but these two polishes were much more specific than that.

They are Pacific Blue from Sally Hansen and Tart Deco from Essie. I have been on the hunt for these two for months! I used to be able to find Tart Deco, but had passed on it since it's more expensive. And when I decided to go ahead and get it, it was always sold out. Pacific Blue, on the other hand, never seemed to be sold in stores near me. There wasn't even a spot for it in the Sally Hansen rack.

Clearly I found them and I am so excited that I did! I had stopped by an out-of-the-way CVS (it's much bigger than my normal one) to pick up some random things with Tim. I had promised him that I would only be getting this one face mask and that I would only look at the make-up while he got his stuff. I had no idea what I was going to find!

Style Inspiration

When you're looking for a new style or outfit ideas where do you look? Do you look for actual outfits that are already styled and complete? Do you look for general color schemes? Or is it just the feeling of the season that inspires you?

Lately I have found the most inspiration from pictures like these...

I still like looking at outfits on Pinterest and fashion blogs, but there's just something about these color palettes that put me in the fall mood. It's funny because even though I'm not dressing for fall quite yet, I've already started painting my nails in darker colors.

These last two pictures are definitely bright and maybe don't make you think of fall, but the blue undertone makes them feel more seasonable.
