Unconventional Rainy Day with Hunter Boots




7am hits and you check outside your window. Yet again, another rainy day. What is your go-to rainy day look? Jeans, knit sweater and rain jacket + boots? I thought so. Let's mix it up, let's pretend it's not raining out. What would you wear? 

Spice up your grey day and add some color to the streets. Keep your favorite rain boots on (mine are these black Hunter boots via Zappos) and grab a rain jacket -- Obviously those are an essential. However, don't let the rain stop you from feelin' some type of way! I paired my Hunter boots with one of my favorite midi dresses, perfect length for those dreaded puddles. Layer up with a cozy sweater overtop and belt or trendy fanny pack for definition. Lastly, per usual, add in those accessories. Scarfs, hats or jewelry -- you decide! But hey, who's going to stop you. Wear your unconventional rainy day look every day of the week. Rain or shine!



The Hunter Play Boot is the newest style from Hunter and offers a fresh take on the
Hunter Original rain boot. The Hunter Play Boot is now available in exclusive colors that you can only get at Zappos!

Summer to Fall Transitioning with YOOX


And here we go again, yet again moving into another season as quick as the last one came. As I get older it seems that the seasons change quicker and quicker and especially living in Michigan, the cooler seasons seem to linger a bit longer than the rest. Summer, can you last a day longer please?

With that said, I'd like to think I've become pretty clever at choosing statement pieces that are great not only for transiting seasons but also wearable throughout the following months. Today I've teamed up with YOOX to style a bold fall forward look -- YOOX offers tons of beautiful hard-to-find clothing and accessories for men and women from the world's most prestigious designers. After browsing their site, I fell in complete love with this Free People Patched Jacket. You all know I love a good print and this jacket makes for the perfect fall statement that every girl needs in her closet.

Why I love printed jackets so much is because, you can take any simple outfit and make a look much more elevated and trendy by just simply throwing it over your shoulders -- Makes it easy and effortless. But don't stop there, kick it up a notch and go wild. I love styling for fall because the layering options are endless. Pair similar toned prints with the jacket and voila, you have a show-stopping look that will last you all season long!

Pinterest Apartment Decor Inspiration

The time is here! I'm 22 going on 23 and finally moving out of my parents house. I'm very lucky to have such a welcoming and loving family who would have me as long as I'd want however, I'm excited to finally venture out on my own!

For those who are new, hey! & if you didn't know, when I was in college I commuted. Honestly, my senior year of high school I really wasn't sure where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to do something creative and decided to apply to art school. The school I applied to was only about 40 minutes from home and so I decided to make the commute and do a bachelors in three years instead of four. 

Fast forward 5 years later from high school and two years since college, the time is finally here! Don't get me wrong, I don't regret for one second staying home. It's honestly been so great to save and finally save up for somewhere nice and worth moving into! I've gotten so many questions asking if Tyler and I are moving in together. Tyler and I are not moving in together! He is still in Optometry school and I work two hours south - We have been doing "long distance" for the last few years (even though I wouldn't necessarily say that haha). BUT one day :)

Long story short, I'm super excited to share this next chapter of my life with y'all! I've been a "fashion blogger" for about four years now and I'm really looking forward to incorporating way more lifestyle and home decor posts! If you have any recommendations of posts or even videos you would like to see, please do let me know!

Moving on to todays post, I've been on Pinterest at least three times a day the past few weeks trying to get some inspiration for my new place! There are SO many ideas and options and some of you on Instagram have reached out saying you are about to move as well! I'm excited to be on the journey with you! As you know, my style is more on the bohemian side and I'm also a bit of a print freak. I'm not exactly sure if I'm going for one certain style of decorating, but I guess we will have to wait and see! So without further-ado, here are my top apartment decor inspiration photos I've found via Pinterest!

KITCHEN:


My new apartment will be pretty small-ish. When you walk in, you will walk into the kitchen which leads right into the living room. My idea is to play off the island bar with some fun bar stools. and possibly a tiny table. I love the idea of wicker stools and playing around with mixed textures / prints. Keeping it fresh and fun!


LIVINGROOM:


The plus is that I already have an awesome Burrow couch that is going to look amazing in my space! My thought it to do some sort of accent wall, whether it be with photos or a printed removable wallpaper! Of course lots of plants and fun decor.


BEDROOM:


COZY! Maybe it's just me, but I love my bedroom to not only look fresh and cozy but to BE fresh and cozy! Creams and whites always give off that vibe to me. The ONLY thing I'm a little bummed about with my new place is that the bedroom carpet is this greyish black color. Kinda kills my vibe since the kitchen and living room is wood, but I'm thinking to do my best with allll the rugs!


BATHROOM:


I'm super pumped for bathroom decorating. Is that weird? I will actually have a half bath AND a master bath so I'm pretty excited to be honest. For the half bath since it's only a sink and toilet, I'm thinking something super fun and tropical themed with a faux print brick or tile wallpaper, along with printed towels and plants! I would love to carry that into the master as well by finding an awesome statement shower curtain!
