Hello September

Thursday, September 8, 2016

I absolutely adore everything about September- from the way the golden rays of summer seem to stretch over the sky for just a liiiittle while shorter to welcome nightfall, or how the yellow remnants of the August sun seem to seep slowly into the leaves until one day we wake up to a canopy of crimson. September officially signifies the start of the Autumn months, even though we've still got till the 22nd. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back, craft stores are bustling with Halloween decor, everywhere you look there are fall scented candles and pumpkin everything. It is amazing and I freakin love it.
Today was one of those September days where the sun was out but there was still a chill in the air-- basically the perfect time to start layering. Fall fashion is undoubtably the greatest, and this is officially my first "Autumn inspired ootd."

I seriously envy people who can pull off Docs in their day to day attire. I got these babies three years ago from my dad as a birthday gift and I adore them. In fact, there was a time when I'm pretty sure I wore them everyday for a month straight. I stopped wearing them for a bit when someone made a comment asking where my military jacket was so I got a bit insecure about being too "goth." But you know what, fuck what other people say. If you like it, wear it- am I right?

Textures are everything, and I love mixing them together. I paired this red satin tank with a leather jacket, both for layering purposes and to grunge up the look to tie together the docs. The little red details on the pants pop out a bit more when paired with the tank, and the red eyeshadow is the final bang. 
PS: been super loving warm tones on eyes, and that is a key look this season!! I just got the Morphe 35O Matte Palette and it is amazing! If you've been looking for red- this is it.

As always, scroll down for deets!

Other news/// Yesterday, I was supposed to start my new job and I kind of, maybe, sorta quit the night before over e-mail. Oopsies. I'm not sure what I'm going to do next but I knew I wasn't going to be happy there. I was basically settling for the first decent offer that came along. I also have some things I've been working on that I am so excited to eventually share with you... hopefully by the end of this month! It has definitely been a crazy year but I feel like things are starting to get back on track and it feels really good to be doing things that I enjoy and for myself instead of doing shit because I feel like I'm supposed to. I'm planning to post more often here, we'll see how life goes.
