Oooooh! Being back in Minnesota with this fall weather has me wanting to shop for some new clothes SO bad! Not to mention the few things I had to buy while I’ve been home because I didn’t properly pack… *insert eye roll here*
So I thought I’d start a new series on the blog where I round up weekend deals each week, along with some of my favorite pieces! How does that sound to you? I mean, we girls gotta stick together and that includes giving some heads up on SALES!
Lately I’ve been feeling a little burnt out, a little delayed, and just a bit off. I’ve been struggling with the feelings of not being motivated to do anything at all, and simultaneously wanting to do EVERYTHING. It’s really split down the middle highs and lows. You know what I’m talking about, right? It’s like my blog, my business, ME IN GENERAL, are at a bit of a standstill. I’m not moving forward as fast as I want to be, simply because I’m making the wrong choices.
Los Angeles is great, and I love my life, but sometimes I feel like it’s too much. That it’s hard to disconnect sometimes because I find myself not being able to say no to things (anyone else?) when I should be focusing on other things. There is plenty of work to be done, but it’s gorgeous outside and I’d rather go to the beach. Or go to happy hour with my friends, when I should stay in and finish a blog post. I don’t want to miss out! So I’ve been making the wrong choices, and regretting them later.
I decided to come back to Minnesota to visit my family and to make some time for myself. Selfishly, it’s what I need. To unplug and relax. It’s easier to slow down for me while I’m here. Whatever may be the reason (being around family, things are quieter here, etc), it’s just easier.
Do you have a place like that? A place that makes you just feel calm?
Fall is hereeeeee! Well, not technically here in LA. Los Angeles is still feeling 100% like Summer, 90 degree temperatures and all. I’m about over it. I’ve been dying to bust out my boots, sweaters, wear my jeans again (without sweating my ass off). I miss my Fall wardrobe!
Even if it’s still hot as hell in LA, I’ve been pretending that we’re getting cooler temps by doing a lot of online shopping! All of the stores, boutiques, brands are launching their new collections and there is so much goodness happening. I wanted to break down some of the Fall trends coming our way that I’m SO on board with, what I’m shopping for, and what I am definitely NOT (you know those trends that happen that really need to go back where they came from…).
Let’s do this…
Trend #1: STARS
Stars are everywhere this Fall and I’m sort of in love. Worship Worthy is selling these amazing star statement earrings that are the oomph that every outfit needs, in my opinion. If you look at all of the major brands, there are stars on everything. Here are my favorites.
So in most parts of the country, September usually means that Fall is around the corner. Cooler weather, the leaves start to change colors, you can bust out your “winter” clothes- boots, sweaters, hats. All the GOOD stuff!
Growing up in Minnesota, Fall tends to be everyone’s favorite time of year. It’s no longer hot and humid, and it’s just before you start to literally freeze your ass off. It’s the perfect season! And god, I miss seeing the leaves change.
However, in California, September is still H-O-T! Don’t get me wrong, I love the beach, a good pool day, and going for a hike in 80 degree weather. But, I will say, I’m getting sick of my summer clothes and wearing the same things every week. My fashion creativity has hit a lull.
It hit me the other day…. Summer is just about over (whatever that means to us here in LA) and I’m coming up on 5 months of “fun employment” after my layoff. WHOA. How is time going so fast? We’ve had a lot going on this summer between traveling, friends coming into town, weekends away, my 30th birthday blowout, etc, but seriously, how is it already September? I feel like I blinked in June, and here we are.
It also hit me the other day that I’m still trying to figure out what exactly WTF I’m doing with my life, etc. How has 5 months gone by and I still don’t have a “real” job? How is Worship Worthy not at the point I expected to be at in my head? What have I been doing? Eeeek! Scary feeling, you guys! Also, that “OMG I’m 30” landed on top of me, all at once. Shits getting real.
