I don't think their is anytime besides Fall season that I admire nature so much.  I just want to take a plastic trash bag and collect all the different colored leaves and keep them in hopes to preserve them because they give me so much joy! I just love Fall!!
If there is anything you long for "DON'T STOP BELIEVING," with that being said, I have been wanting a red wool hat for thee longest time. My other hats I own range from a variety of darker colors so I wanted to expand my selection. Last week, I went to a new thrift store further away from where I live and found this vintage red one for only $6.98, I say only because the hat was very sturdy and is in perfect condition, definitely a deal...SCORE! This hat is the biggest one I own by far but I love it, it 's so unique, so yeah my hat collection is growing, hah. I just love finding new thrift stores, it's like  exploring a big treasure chest that has loads of goodies for inexpensive prices compared to malls or departments stores. This is what I wore on Monday, don't be fooled by the sunlight action going on in these photos, it was a bit chilly but I took complete advantage of the sunlight and decided to wear red and yellow, which are two colors that I think really compliment each other.
I busted out my red flatforms as it match perfectly with the red hat. My embarrassing moment on Monday happened when I was on campus walking from a class that had just ended and I tripped on my flatforms before I reached the steps, hahah! It's funny because I knew it was bound to happen that day because I am just clumsy but I didn't think it would happen in front of close to 100 students, ahhhh. I laughed it off then went on with my business, what to do.
I am changing a few things on my blog as far as the layout and header, so expect more future changes. I was getting really bored with the previous layout and wanted something new. I hope all is well with everyone! I will talk to you guys soon!!!

 A total change of scenery for me, I decided to take a few shots near the pier! Ahh, the atmosphere was so calming not to mention the sky during sun set, it was GORGEOUS. The best time to whip out your supscribtion to the Wall Street Journal and start reading it (hence the last picture.)
 For the love of Fall weather, I completely got my outfit inspiration from the season. The warm colors: olive, burnt orange, brown, dark blue etc. all complement each other. The blazer and top I recently got from H&M for a total of $17.00 (on sale) YUP, you can't beat that. I think its safe to say I am in love with ankle boots, this past week all I have been wearing are ankle boots. I picked up these studded brown ones earlier this month and was able to wear them around campus from class to class, comfort is key. Yesterday on campus I saw this guy that probably had the best Indie/rocker/ punk outfit that I had seen in a while, it was totally DIFFERENT and UNIQUE, and I couldn't help but chase him down to compliment him on his outfit, hahah and I was able to get a picture thanks to my friends. I am really looking forward to showing you guys in upcoming post all the campus styles that I have seen. Personal style is truly an art and a form of of an expression.
London is a no go for me unfortunately, the timing of knowing about the trip through my college was a bit late, so I guess PRIMARK will have to wait *tear tear*

Floral Graditude

(That awkward moment when you haven't posted a blog post in while and your trying to come up with an introduction), hahahah! "Hey Guyssss, long time no" :)
I love this floral blouse from H&M, the vibrant colors make it easy to pair it with pretty much anything. I got the blouse for $15 because it was on sale. It's funny because I recently went back to H&M and saw that they had restocked some more of the blouse but were selling them for the regular price of  $30. So I guess I was lucky to pick up the last one in clearance. I really had this coral high-low skirt in mind when I bought the top, and being the floral junkie that I am, I had to get it.
 The leaves are changing color faster than I expected actually! Ahhh, nothing like blog pictures during the Fall time (my favorite)
In other news, I might be going to London for my winter break, (fingers crossed). The opportunity is offered through my college, and I would be there for two weeks taking a course that would count towards a credit. The thought of me being in London is just beyond me and totally overwhelming. I might even be able to the visit wonderful "PRIMARK," the store I wish existed in the states,haha. Just imagine all the gorgeous scenery and street style pictures I would come back with and hopefully by then I would have bought a canon camera, so the images come out clearer. I will def keep you guys posted on the trip!
My mom recently went to Pheonix and Las Vegas (yes without me, sadly missing one day off of classes would kill me.) She really enjoyed herself, between playing on slot machines, mountain climbing, sight seeing and some shopping she concluded that Las Vegas was better than New York :O I guess I will just have to wait and see if that's right when I visit Las Vegas next year. My mom brought back some nice clothing  from Phoenix  for me, all the items were really different and unique. I can't wait to style them, I'm just searching for the right pieces.  Nothing in my closet seems to do justice for the amazing items she got.
