Fall is my favorite season. And
not so surprisingly I had started this post from last year exactly the same way too! I think it’s safe to say that even the people on the International Space Station know this about me by now. 🤦🏽♀️
Except for longer days and dresses, summer doesn’t excite me much. There I said it. 🙈 I don’t do well in heat. My head hurts, eyes burn and it becomes doubly difficult to hike.. Aka I am ready to say adios summerigos for now.
There’s a nip in the air which makes my heart happy because it means my favoritest *is that even a word?* season (fall, fall fall) is almost here. Does a happy dance.. some somersaults.. ha as if! I had to literally google how to spell somersaults. I had initially written it as summersaults. Now you know how athletic I am. 🤦🏽♀️ But the main point is that we are close to fall and I am oh-so ready for jackets, coats, booties, scarves, PSL, orange leaves and all the good stuff. I have already started dressing up for fall. Case in point today’s outfit. 👇🏽
I have been thinking alot lately. Something I do alot. Something I need to tone down. But yeah.. I want to start sharing more personal, easy going posts on the blog. Huh don’t you already do that enough Monika? Apparently not enough! 🤷♀️ I think what I mean is that somedays I want to publish posts that may or may not have anything substantial to offer. *yeah guys I think all my posts are earth shattering. Narcissist? who me? 🤔* Maybe just a post to say a quick hello, share my outfit , maybe talk about what’s up with me or a quick summary of some topics that are close to my heart. I struggle with being consistent on the blog and I know one of the reason is my constant need to publish something that’s super helpful in one way or the other. And that can take a toll, especially when you have other things going on that need your attention. Content creation gives me so much happiness and I want to start putting out more of it.. I just don’t want to not do it because I put this pressure on myself to produce content that kicks ass all the time. Lol all this sounds so dramatic. 🙄 I swear I need to be in the movies! You gotta see my expressions when I talk about topics I am passionate about and you’ll know what I mean. Don’t believe me? Follow me on instagram *shameless promotion 😋 * and see my insta stories. Soooo dramatic I tell you! Ok I digress..So what do you guys think? I would love love to know if this is something you all will be interested in reading? Let me know..
So on this particular day I didn’t have any plans to shoot. I still took the camera incase we got some time to clickety-clack and we did! Yay yay! 💃🏽
Before going out that day I had a long chat with one of my best friend and we got talking about dressing up just because you want to and not because you have to.. Also stop waiting for a special occasion to wear something you have been meaning to. oh btw I have a tendency to dress up like someone who owns zero clothes for occasions I consider not important or places where I might look like the odd one out. I am not kidding. I wear the same pair of clothes all the time and even Mr. M notices it and he never notices anything about clothes. Ever! 🤷♀️ I know what you are thinking. Is she really a fashion blogger? I wonder the same chicas! Coming back to my conversation with her.. So it got me thinking about how so many of us wait for a special occasion/place to take out that purse or piece of jewelry we have been dying to wear. It just doesn’t make sense. Tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone. *I warned you about the cheesiness and drama*. And big deal if you are the only one who is over-dressed or for that matter under-dressed. If it makes you happy and your heart fly, then go for it.. And that’s exactly what I did. You know where I was headed on this particular day? To a temple. Yes! I wanted to dress up and I did. As simple as that. And you should too. 🤘🏽
ABOUT THE OUTFIT
Denim jackets are timeless and perfect for almost all seasons.. and my love for sneakers knows no bounds now. You just gotta deal with it!🤷♀️ Anndd I finally found a dress that is actually midi in length for a not-so tall me.*more happy dance. still no somersaults..* Ok I say this about every midi length piece of clothing.
But the star of this outfit is the bag. I love Gucci embroidered bags (i don’t even know what they are called) but my bank balance doesn’t love me so much. This ASOS bag is .001% version of what I wanted at 0.00001% of the price. *attempts somersaults and breaks a bone or two* 🤦🏽♀️
Moral of the story?
- Talk to your friends more often. You might learn a thing or two.
- I can’t afford Gucci bags.
- Take your camera with you. Somedays the unplanned shoots turn out pretty decent. *again narcissist, who me? cmn.🤷♀️*
- Most importantly check your background before taking pics. Case in point the beautiful garbage-can I am dreamily staring at below! 🙈
