fALL VIBES and then some…

FALL VIBES FALL VIBES FALL VIBES FALL VIBES FALL VIBES

Hey guys, hope your weeks have been going well. Mine sure has been. Lots of good news and changes coming up ahead for me and my fam bam. But I’ll share those deets with y’all in a later post, so stay tuned!

Well, fall is officially here and my wardrobe is pretty psyched to get in on the action. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that last year’s fall and winter totally sucked ’cause it was barely cold (I mean ok I live in Florida but c’mon a girl can dream!) and I really wanted to wear coats and warmer clothing. So I know what you’re probably thinking : “then move to a colder state!”…not gonna happen. I’ll just stay here and keep complaining about how it never gets cold…’cause I live in Florida and I ain’t leavin’. It’s an endless, vicious cycle. And I love it…ha! So bear with me.

Well, my strategy this year is to just make peace with fact that I may not need to wear a heavy coat at all and just stock up on pretty, lighter knits like this one  which are super soft but pretty warm and awesome for layering under a denim jacket or trench. Of course fall is all about breaking out the darker colors so I am loving my trusty corduroy skirt from Jcrew I got a few years back (I’ve linked several options below) and I seriously love it because it’s stretchy, doesn’t feel clingy and makes me feel confident. Of course, it’s boot season and you know I had to break out my fave pair this season because they literally go with every damn thing, no joke.

Switching gears a bit, I wanted to share with you guys some things I am so obsessed with right now, just to get in the habit of conversing with you all a bit more and hope you share yours, too!

  1. If you follow me on Insta, you know by now I have a serious obsession with Sour Patch Kids. No, I had not tried them before because, in all honesty I thought they were yucky-looking and I rarely eat candy, save for a dark chocolate to kill my sweet cravings during the week. Ohhhh man, these things are addictive so don’t be surprised if I start looking a bit rounder than usual, it’s all that sugar I may be eating..ha!!
  2. The Secret Life of Pets. Christ Almighty is this movie so good!!! We can watch this movie ALL DAY and not get tired I swear to God!! It’s soo damn funny; the voices, the situations, the characters, the plot. And Jenni Kayne’s voice as Gidget – my spirit animal – is just the cherry on top!
  3. Nikkie Tutorials on Youtube– Ok so I can’t do my makeup if my damn life depended on it but I cannot stop watching this woman do her makeup tutorials on Youtube. She is downright GORGEOUS, charismatic and humorous I can see why her following is as huge as it is. Oh and her makeup applying skills aren’t bad either..ha!!!
  4. Mr. Robot– these series, y’all. Do yourself a favor and start watching it. Thank me later.
  5. The kids from ‘Stranger Things’– obsessed with the series but these kids just stole my heart. And one of the main characters is named Lucas!!!! How cool is that? Best boy name ever (I may be biased) and Millie Bobbie Brown is the cutest kid ever. I wanna hang with her. For reals.

Welp, that’s all for now. Hope you have a kick-ass weekend and I’ll catch you guys next week!

Xoxo,

Raquel
