Sweater Weather

Hello world, and a second hello to my favorite time of the year. It's not too hot, or too cold. Cool enough for a light sweater but not so cold just yet that you need your Sorel's and fur. Fall would have to be my first choice when it comes to seasons to plan outfits for the blog. I love everything about the style: sweaters, chunky scarves, beanies- don't get me started on the boots. Man oh man do I love a good pair of boots.

My top favorite places to look for sweaters would have to be: Zara, Guess, Just Fab, and Fashion Nova. Need some cute boots in your life, then try: AmiClubwear, Nordstrom Rack, and Dr.Marten.

Sadly Autumn doesn't last very long in Alaska but I'm enjoying it while it's here.

Oh and happy Monday lovelies!

I Love Me pt. 2

Hello lovelies! It's been a little while since I've had anything to post- this Alaska lifestyle has my plate full with other things. Finding photographers to work with has been nearly impossible, but I was lucky enough to take a trip back home a few weeks ago and had the opportunity to shoot some new material.

I've been focusing on learning to love my body flaws as I work on improving myself. Everyone has their own way of accepting themselves, and for me it's showing my insecurities and embracing them through the journey. Now Now some of you will think I’m crazy, so let me put it in perspective- I gained between 20 to 25 pounds in one year. Let's just say I'm an emotional eater, and it's been a crazy year. This weight gain has helped me see that being a size 6 doesn't make me less pretty than when I was a size 2; that doesn’t mean I won’t continue to strive for self-improvement.

Stretch marks, no thigh gap, and a little bit of tummy fat- I still love me. Don't forget to love yourself even if you aren't where you'd like to be.

Hello Fall

Fall is finally in the air here in Seattle. The leaves have changed colors, the temperatures continue to drop, and the rain has even come back!

I recently had a fun fall-styled shoot with local brand Jaleh at Volunteer Park. Both new and old pieces from the line were brought to shoot, with a new twist on the styling to showcase the more casual side of the brand.

This brand has so much to offer: colors, patterns, short sleeve, long sleeve. Dress it up, dress it down.

You know that rule about no white after Labor Day- break it. Who even came up with that?! I loved pairing this high low top with a nice pair of jeans and flat with a simple gold bracelet.

We shot eight pieces from Jaleh's collection and every item had something different to offer. My favorite look of the day was definitely the mustard peplum shirt; peek the rest of the looks and let me know which ones are your favorites!
