Falling Fast :: denim vest + leather leggings

Friday, October 17, 2014

Sometimes the most unexpected combinations create the most stylish looks. Fashion is all about experimentation and this look is a result of me combining a few of my favorite pieces in order to create a comfortable, casual, and of course fashionable ensemble.
I warned you back in June that I'd be wearing this denim vest a lot and I have definitely lived up to that promise. No shame! This baby is one of my favorite purchases of 2014 and I have gotten so much use out of it. It really adds a new dimension to any outfit and I love the laid-back vibe it gives off.
White sneaks are a casually fun choice for footwear - especially next to edgy chic leather leggings. I love the contrast between the two. Plus, simple white sneakers go with everything and no closet should be without.
Can you believe October is already halfway over? Fall certainly is going by fast. I couldn't let the season go by without some ol' fashion apple picking though...and without wearing my denim vest a few hundred times. 
It's jewelry details like these that make an outfit original. 
I have never seen so many flawless and vibrant apples all in one place before. I'm telling you, these apples are way sweeter than the kind you collect at the grocery store.
Do you think my top knot is as flawless as Blue Ivy's
I found the George Clooney of all pumpkins, which was a highlight of my day. I plucked him from the ground myself!

As promised, here are some lovely mountain pictures from my relaxing retreat in Virginia. My friends and I had a wonderful time cooking, hot tubbing, and of course pumpkin/apple picking. It's not fall if you don't pick a few apples, am I right? The atmosphere was so beautiful that we couldn't resist taking some fun fall shots at the orchard we visited. And maybe, just maybe I matched my lipstick with the apples on purpose...

I'm back at school now and facing reality once again but stay tuned for one more group of photos from the mountains! The scenery was too pretty not to take advantage of.

  38. ha ha George Clooney of pumpkin's that is too funny. Vest are versatile and i think will never go out of style. This is such a chic look. We pick apples too and they are way better than store bought.
