Happy Halloween guys! This will just be a quick post...Gavin and I really haven't had much time to actually prepare and carve pumpkins, so when we finally had a day off together, we found a quiet spot, listened to some music and drew on some pumpkins. It was a really lovely day. Ayway, have a safe and creepy halloween guys! I can't wait to see all the orginial costumes this year!

Well, it's almost here, one of the very best days of the year...HALLOWEEN. I've just been having strings of bad luck around this time of year, and every year I never end up getting a costume and having the all-out halloween experiences I used to love growing up. Dressing up is one of my favorite things to do (obviously, I am a fashion blogger), and dressing up with friends is even funner. I sort of cheated with this one and simply bought a hat from the dollar store and used a dress and jewlery I alerady owned and decided to have a halloween shoot at the very least. Yes, a witch costume is easy, but it's also fun. After last season's American Horror Story: Coven , I've been inspired to look witch-like at least once a week. One feels quite powerful entirely in black with stormy skies above them ;) HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE HALLOWEEN GALS AND GHOULS.

Unfortunately I've been pretty sick with the flu these past couple of days. So whenever I find the energy to get out of bed...it's not to go very far. Luckily there are the loveliest gardens and parks around making it possible for me to get the fresh air I so badly need without having to stray too far from my bed. Now, allow me to introduce to you my new favorite autumn addition: THIS stunning vintage coat from FrontRowShop . Everything about is pretty well perfect, the color ( I believe I've recently dedicated a whole post to my obsession with green) the fit, and the warmth! It is well lined and protects me well against the cool wind. I paired it with a flower crown that I made, I am slowly opening a shop for them (along with other handmade items), you can see what's up so far here . And one of my favorite dresses from Urban Outfitters. I love that, although this coat is of a unique color, I can still manage to match it with most of the items in my closet. Front Row Shop is killing it with thier fall/winter coats, here are a few more of my favorites:
Anyway, I'm off to drink tea until my headache goes away, hopefully I'll be better soon! Have a great week ^.^

I've been so drawn to paisly prints lately...I'm so disapointed in how diffucult it is to find! This dress is a treasure though, the print and color are both so unique, I have nothing close to it in my closet. I paired it with my favorite autumn hat (mostly because it's green) and a bright red lip as a nice color contrast. Sometimes it's fun to be bright in the fall ^.^

Autumn is currently in its prime, the colors are vibrant and breathtaking, the air is comfortably cool and the sky resembles something from a horror movie. We've literally had rain every day for two weeks now, and I'm loving it.There's something I find comforting about autumn weather, I'm outdoors more this time of year than I am in the summer!
I'm looking forward to this week, I start my new job, my secret project is coming along, and hopefully I can fit one or two forest adentures in there! It's a funny thing, I always get comments on the way I'm dressed outdoors (I rarely wear pants, I've just always prefered dresses and skirts) and somehow, becuase of this, they think I hate the outdoors, or that I don't belong. Truthfully, I don't care about "getting my dress dirty", what are clothes for if not to live in them? Self expression of course, but how can we express ourselves properly if we let the things we wear limit our activities? Or our activities limit the way we want to dress? Why CAN'T we have it all? I've literally hiked and climbed mountains in my dresses and tights, it's honestly no harder and certainly no more uncomfortable (at least for me, as I am one of "those" who actually find pants too confining and uncomfortable) than wearing pants or shorts. Dresses are great because of how decieving they are...they give the appearance of effort, meanwhile it takes much less to simply throw on one piece of clothing which allows for full body/leg movement. I guess the point I'm trying to make is, not to make assumptions of people based on they choose to look while they live thier own lives. We're all different and comfortable in different environments, clothes, etc. Okay, rant over, Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all have a lovely week ^.^
