Fall Means Football

It’s football season again! This is only my second year watching football but I’m still enjoying watching it. We have been going to a little sports bar by my apartment to watch most of the Patriots games. I like to keep it kind of casual since I’m watching sports and it’s usually a Sunday but I also like to try to wear at least a little bit of the Patriots colors. So for this outfit I went with mostly blue, in the jeans and burnout tank, with a pop of red in the shoes and lips.

I realized when I edited these photos that my bra strap is showing… Not so stylish haha! I think I put a sweater on right after this so I wasn’t even thinking about it. I’ll have to pay closer attention to those details. It’s getting dark so much earlier already that I realize how hard it is going to be to take outfit pictures. I’m going to try to keep it up since fall clothing is my favorite! I also want to try to showcase some of my coats and winter layering as well in the next few months.

Anyway, this outfit is pretty simple but the shoes at least make it a little more fun. These wedges are actually pretty comfortable and I am loving the closed toe and bright red for autumn weather.

Thanks for stopping by!

2013 Emmys Red Carpet

It’s no secret that I love award shows! Something about them just puts me in a good mood. How can anyone not love a red carpet situation anyway! Most of the ladies looked great last night at the Primetime Emmy Awards and I really didn’t see any terrible dresses on the red carpet. There was also nothing super exciting or ground breaking but there were still some fun styles. Here are my favorites from last night:

Tina Fey in Narciso Rodriguez – She looked AMAZING in this fitted royal blue halter gown!

Laura Dern in Naeem Kahn – I just love how different this dress is and the color and detailing is fun and gorgeous.

Linda Cardellini in Donna Karan Atelier – This color looks so good on her and the sculptural gown is so different from something Lindsay Weir would wear!

Elisabeth Moss in Andrew Gn – You can’t go wrong with classic black & white with sparkles plus I just think she looks really good here.

Lena Dunham in Prada – She does not always choose things I like but I think this gown is fun, unexpected, and flattering on her so she gets my vote.

Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano – She also doesn’t always choose flattering gowns but even though this is a little boring it looks perfect on her and I like the lace.

August in Instagram

August was a fun month but as  I said before I’m not too sad to see the summer go. Even though we had a relatively mild summer I am definitely not a fan of hot weather! Here’s a round up of what August had in store for me.

» I did a few DIY projects including this tray made from a cardboard box. I will probably share a few of them here.

» I flew home to Portland Oregon to visit my family and friends!

» Which also means I got to visit my kitty (really one of my parents cats but she’s my favorite and I miss her). Don’t get me started on kitty adorableness.

» Oregon was wonderful. Not only did I spend time in Portland but I also escaped down to the gorgeous misty Oregon coast for a weekend with a great group of people.

» When I got back Doug and I went to the Marshfield Fair and to a movie night at Fenway Park. The fair included my first demolition derby haha. Watching a movie at Fenway was a cool experience and I hope they will do it again.

» I broke out my sewing machine for the first time in a long time and I’m excited to sew some more stuff and possibly start tackling patterns.

September Wish List

Yay, fall is almost here! I might be the only one but I am totally ready for summer to be over. I love fall clothes and weather even if it means that winter is coming soon. Let’s be real, I definitely do not need new clothes or accessories. My closet is overflowing with things I’ve never worn already. However, with the changing of the seasons I just can’t help but look at new stuff! Here are some things I’m coveting for fall. Sept Wish List1. Polka Dots! I’m still majorly obsessed with dots and I always like to add more prints to my wardrobe (especially in dress form).

2. Leopard Print Handbag. I really really really want a leopard print bag for fall. I was thinking to look for a clutch but I never carry the clutches I have so a bag seems more practical.

3. I’m still pretty into long gold necklaces and I’m loving the slightly deco arrows on this one.

4. It’s almost time for hot coffee and lattes again! So of course a pretty coffee cup is necessary.

5. Plaid Coats. This one technically isn’t plaid but I still like it and it makes me think of plaid. I also always like a big furry collar.

6. Retro Glasses. Just because summer is over it doesn’t mean you stop wearing sunnies!

7. Flat Knee High Boots. I absolutely do not need any more boots but if I was going to buy 1 pair this fall it would be a black leather pair like these!

What’s on your fall wish list?

Lazy Weekend

I like holidays like Labor Day where people just get together to relax and enjoy each others company. This Labor Day however, the weather was pretty horrible so I mostly just relaxed and allowed myself to be really lazy for a little while. It was the perfect time to catch up on reading blogs and the September issues and sneak outside in between thunder storms (which I actually secretly love)!
