Happy Tuesday my friends! I hate that I have been so busy lately that I have not had time to blog. Man, I was having withdrawals, haha! Thankfully, I finally got a shoot in, and it was for me and Will's date night Sunday. I wanted to try J. Alexander's for the first time, and it was delicious. I opted for a more comfy chic look since it was a rainy night. Plus I wanted to wear my new $20 clearance booties from Target I snagged this weekend. Now let me tell you ladies, cobalt is one of the hottest colors this fall. Another clearance item I was ecstatic about that I found at Target recently was this cobalt blue sweater for $8. Target is on a roll this week! I just paired it with a little baggier skinny jean and a new Forever 21 gold statement necklace. I had originally picked it out for a friend I helped shop for a mission trip, but I loved it so much that I went back and got it as well. With my mother's birthday money, I also got this gorgeous city tote from Forever 21. It goes with absolutely anything, and it is so perfect for school and travel. I definitely would recommend this for an all-year round bag! Some of the final touches were my fishtail braid that I have not attempted to do since forever, my new Forever 21 mustache midi ring, and my leopard earrings my sister got me for my birthday. I was absolutely thrilled to get them! How do you style your cobalt blue?
It feels so great to be back to blogging after a very stressful and time-consuming few days. This weekend was filled with fantastic activities. Friday consisted of modeling for an adorable online boutique called Amazing Lace. It was such a different experience not having Will behind the camera, but it was a blast. I cannot wait till next time. Saturday and Sunday included a cruise through Shelby Forest and double dating with Will's best friend and his girlfriend by FLYING to Mountain View, AR and eating riverside to the White River. It was quite a busy, yet relaxing weekend. Daylight Savings Time is really killing me though on the weekdays. With school and Will's schedule, darkness creeps up on us and poof, there goes a chance for a photo shoot. Luckily, my semester is coming to an end in about two weeks, so my schedule will be freed. For the colder times during the year, an accessory I love is an absolute must, hats. Beanies can be made to look so incredibly adorable like this Forever 21 burnt orange flower statement one. Of course, this is what I centered my entire outfit around. Since it was chiller that day, I opted for my chunky navy sweater and white dressy scarf to keep a classy, yet warm look to it. As my go-to piece of clothing, jeggings were a must while paired with my Steve Madden slouched brown boots. A hat can be a person's most fashionable best friend when they roll out of bed way too late for class one day. I definitely know that one by experience! It is always fun to see what kind of texture, pattern, statement, or color you can find hats in. What is your favorite fall accessory?
