I don't think I'll ever get tired of delicate ditsy florals like this. The colours in this print are just perfect for fall, and I'll always love a good pussybow neckline. I was gifted a bunch of collars like this one and was having trouble finding ways to wear them. I think I like layering them under necklines like this. I know everyone goes nuts in the fall because they can layer again, which usually means shirts and sweaters and jackets but I'm really excited to layer up my NECK, as weird as that sounds? I mean, lots of bows and necklaces and pins and shirts buttoned all the way up. The sort of things that would have made me pass out and die in the summer heat.
I hate style "rules" and lists of style "essentials" most of the time (o you think i should own a crisp white shirt and a little black dress yawn see you in the morning) but I am a huge advocate for everyone owning a DENIM JACKET. They look good with everything, they look good plain or customized to hell, new or worn, any colour of the rainbow, in spring or fall. It took me a while to find a jacket I really liked but now I don't know what I'd do without it! I usually keep just a couple pins on my jacket, if any. Right now I have this little rose I found on the weekend.
Last week I saw a coupon code on Facebook for a free pair of glasses from Clearly Contacts and of course I jumped on that immediately. I was thinking about getting a plain-ish pair but when I was browsing these frames stole my little heart and I couldn't input my prescription fast enough. I can never just buy a normal pair of glasses, I swear! I wore these for years and years until they fell apart (because they were reading glasses with my honkin' presciption in them!)
