It's a throwback Thursday! That's a thing, right? Throwback to this last summer to be exact. It's an outfit that I never ended up putting on the blog. And yes, I did fully indulge in watermelon for this, including nails. Most of us in the United States are experiencing cold so there is little use for watermelons. Still fun though!

Christmas Music Monday

Today's music is not a video. A friend of mine has recorded some fun Christmas music. Not only is he a talented actor (I know this because we just worked together on a film) but he is definitely musically talented as well. I can't wait to see all the great things in store for him! Please go give it a listen.

Christmas Music Monday

Christmas time has officially started! I made my first wreath for my new apartment. It needs some finishing touches but it looks so lovely on the wall. Yes, I love this season.

Shopping Sales

Thanksgiving is one day away, as is Black Friday sales. I'm not one to do the "early Thanksgiving shopping." Thanksgiving is reserved for family, fun, and giving thanks. I'm also not one to get up at 5 in the morning to go to sales. This might be because I have to get up that early for my job a lot and that takes away my motivation to do that any other time in life. Plus Friday morning is usually reserved for playing soccer. That being said, I still keep an eye on sales. Here are some good ones happening now:

American Eagle- with 40% everything

Kohl's

Sephora

H&M

Of course there is this list at PopSugar with other deals to help too.

Fashion Week

It's time to cover Fashion Week! Fun fact: I was in New York during Fashion Week. Note that I wrote during and not for. Fitting that my first trip to NY would be during that time but I had no time to go take a peek at the shows. NY was fantastic by the way! But I digress. Let's see some fun looks...

Aigner

The most convenient pocket. One might not even need a purse. 

Alberta Ferretti
  25
Cool and flowery. Perfect combo.

  42
Goddess-like.

Alexis Mabille
  13
This dress has statement jewelry and accessories covered while adding the striking inner lining contrast color. Yes, I'll take this one please!

Andrew Gn

Tough, structured, and soft. 

  50
Fun asymmetrical peplum!

Angelo Marani

This jacket would be in heavy rotation in my closet. Hello giraffe sunset!

Carolina Herrera

Bold contrasts with structure.

Music Monday

Getting back into the swing of things. I've got more fashion posts and fashion week choices for you later this week. Unfortunately, I got sick this weekend and slowly recovering. Nothing like your body forcing you to slow down! Ha! And now for one of my favorite bands.

Sometimes I just feel like putting together sweet outfits. Sometimes it's tough ones but really the sweet ones are more true to how I normally go through life. Summer time brings that out too. As we are basically done with summer I'm indulging a bit before I switch to my lovely sweaters and tights. Don't get me wrong, I'm super stoked to get to bring those out but I'm going to indulge in bare legs and breezy skirts and dresses all I can.

Music Monday

I'm baaacckkk! Yay! I apologize for the accidental brief hiatus from the blog. My last project literally took up all my waking hours. Any time spent away from work was really for sleeping. So now to start again fresh with a new song and video with great choreography.

Music Monday

Hello dear readers! I have to give you fair warning that I've started a new project. I'm happy and excited about it! But it may mean that the posts may be sporadic. But I'll try not to let it happen.

Color. Color. Color. I think, in this outfit, that no one could accuse me of being boring or morose. Morning coffee with a good friend to start the day is always happiness. Some people like to follow trends or, well, loads of other reasons. I adhere to the "look good, feel good rule." There is nothing wrong with an ever-changing style and dressing for how you feel. So go ahead, have fun with fashion!

Modified red, white, and blue. I didn't plan it. I think that means patriotism to my core. Yay! Lately my jobs have included loads of driving and I need to stay cool in my car. My poor air-conditioning sometimes has to work hard. This skirt seems to have it's own ventilation system when walking around. Bonus! I believe this is called making it work. It is one I have become good about and keep practicing (inadvertently) all the time.

Music Monday

Hello, dear readers! I know it's Monday but I feel like tomorrow actually is. My work week starts tomorrow so I guess I can't help it. This next gig is going to be one of those that I just know is going to be difficult to get through. Five days, here we go!

Music Monday

Hello dear readers! This music post also will have a bonus. New music from a favorite band and a kickstarter for a stop-motion animation film!

Miss Jackson by Panic! At The Disco

So this kickstarter is for a friend of mine. They have been pretty successful, I'd say. But any little bit can help. For those of you out there who enjoy stop-motion animation keep an eye out for this film!

Meetings combined with the heat mean getting creative with the outfit. Stay cool and have fun. The skirt is a bit warm and heavy so I stayed light on top. Top it with the classy purse that can fit all the "business" papers and computers. I can't help it but this purse always puts me in the business mindset. And then the flare of the skirt keeps the fun in my mindset too.

Summer time heat made me a little more adventurous, yesterday, to embrace a trend. Sheer is all over the place right now. I'm in the middle of research for a project and a book that I needed was at a college library. Headed to a college...embrace sheer.. Isn't this a normal thing that goes together? Oh and I know you've been seeing this purse a lot but I'm obsessed. Surprisingly, the bright pink goes with a lot. Or, at least, I make it go with a lot.
