Fall Loves

This fall has been one that I have truly enjoyed. I'm generally sad when summer ends, but this year fall seemed so charming that I quickly forgot about my sadness and did my best to enjoy the transitional weather. It definitely helped that the mild temperatures lingered on for longer than usual. Now that winter is ready to make its appearance, many beautiful memories remain as well as a heightened appreciation for nature and life in general - which finally seems quite wonderful despite the occasional hurdles and setbacks. In the same spirit, on this day when the holiday season officially begins, I wanted to reflect on the past months and share a few blog posts from which I gathered unending inspiration, written by women who I now look up to for so many reasons, along with a few of my own posts that I've written this beautiful fall.

  • How To Style A Hair Bow by A Beautiful Mess: An easy, no-heat hair tutorial with no chemical-filled styling products required that I'm confident even I can follow.
  • D.I.Y. Pom Pom Wreath By Bleubird Vintage: A post from a couple of years back, but one that started my DIY obsession this season and the perfect ocassion to use bits of leftover yarn with spectacular results.
  • Look Book: Red Tights & Comfy Cable Knits... by Girl & Closet: Veronika blogged this outfit just a few days ago, and I almost gasped in awe at its sight; to me, it is a quintessential fall outfit, and I will most definitely be on the look-out for some eco-friendly pieces to help me recreate it. *the pictures on Veronika's blog look infinitely better, this collage doesn't do them justice 

  • Handy Work: An array of beautiful bags big enough to carry at school that got me excited for classes to start again.
  • Mild November: The outfit that I was most proud of this fall.
  • Make/Remake: This was the season when I fell completely in love with DIY projects, gathered plenty of inspiration, and looked at my own things to see how I can use them.
