Casual Fall Capsule Wardrobe


   I want to thank everyone who participated in my Instagram poll and who voted for this post! MANY of these type of posts seem to surface this time of year, with the weather changing and everyone gradually putting away summer clothes and bringing all of their fall and winter gear out of storage. It can be a little daunting (I know it is for me!) to scroll through Pinterest and Instagram and seemingly be bombarded with the seasons newest "must-have" items for fall. If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram, you know I put this capsule together inspired by my own wardrobe; I was a little nervous to put this post together, in fear of not having "enough" of the right things or articles of clothing (I specifically mentioned tall boots!). But in the end, I decided to stay true to my ultimate goal of the blog in general: to stay real with you all! I know the majority of my readers probably don't have the budget to go out and buy a whole new fall wardrobe (I sure don't!), but I wanted to create this capsule wardrobe out of few basic items from my own closet, hopefully to inspire your style and encourage you to be content with what you already own. Whether you WANT to go out and buy a few of these pieces, or stick what what you have in your closet, you don't have to have the EXACT colors or styles that I have - just be yourself! Hopefully this can serve as a template to help you create your own fall wardrobe, and give you a little peek into what I'm wearing this season!

DIY Fall Floral Hoop Wreath (Video Demo!)



     Wow, I am SO excited to finally be able to bring you this super fun and *different* type of DIY post today! I had been wanting to share a DIY on the blog for a while, but I was feeling a bit of creative burnout, and unsure of what to share. I had been browsing Pinterest and Etsy recently (honestly what else is new) and came across these truly gorgeous wreaths made with a few silk flowers and an embroidery hoop. As someone forever enamored by flowers and floral arrangements of all kinds, I wanted to try my hand at creating this unique & beautiful piece of home decor. And I told myself if I was successful, I would share it on the blog! BUT, *surprise!!* this isn't your old run-of-the-mill blog post - I turned it into a full video demonstration!
