Returning From YEAR LONG HIATUS (!!!) With Fall Knits + Prints



I can't believe it, but here I am, finally back here posting on my blog! I have battled my thoughts and the pros and cons of running this blog for a full year as well, but my much needed break is over and I feel refreshed and ready to focus into my favorite hobby again.

This blog has really helped define who I am ever since 2012 when I started it. Through the years I've gotten caught up in wanting to make money off of it, and when that didn't happen often for me, it drew me away from it. As well as comparing myself to big bloggers, being upset that I could never afford that brand new Louis Vuitton bag or that I was never going to be"cool" enough to be gifted some Gucci sneakers. However, I've had a year to think things over. I love blogging because it's my outlet to share every outfit I put together, and that's how I express myself!



My outfit here isn't anything I was gifted recently, as I am starting back from the basics with this post. I love fall fashion and am always so eager to put together a cozy layered look during the cooler months. Today I paired this burgundy vintage-inspired sweater top that I received last year from Voodoo Vixen, I can't believe I found it online still all this time later, but it's an outlet piece on the site now and still available in most sizes!

The skirt is thrifted, the tights are from Target and are a few years old now but they matched perfectly with my top so I had to wear them! My front lace-up boots are actually a comfy pair of heeled boots and I can't quite remember where they're from, but don't worry, I've searched the internets and found a similar pair from Dolls Kill for you to take a look at! I also added in a little shine at the end by throwing over this cute rose gold metallic crossbody from Violet Ray, it helped keep my outfit a little modern!

My beanie / beret thing is actually EONS old from JC Penney, and surprisingly enough I've never worn it because I never could quite figure it out. Now that berets are the cute thing to wear, I've finally put this knit beanie on my head and rocked it as a beret... because I think that's always how it wanted to be worn.
