L'automne est arrivé

Untitled #193

Untitled #193 by emmaobarr featuring a white tank

Hello to anyone who reads this blog! I'm thinking about actually getting serious and turning this into a legitimate blog with the help of some people who are a lot better at computers than I am. I'm very busy because I'm a senior this year and it's the middle of marching band season, but I really want to have a successful blog. So for now, here is an outfit I've created on Polyvore for the cooldown that the weathermen have promised this week.

Modest is the Hottest

Today I've decided to round up some of my favorite modest clothing websites for you. Yep, you read that right, modest. I know being modest isn't exactly the popular thing to do, but I think there's definitely something to be said for a woman, of any age, who respects herself enough to wear modest clothing. Anyway, enough with my spiel. Here are my favorite modest websites!

shabbyapple.com
Shabby Apple has some fabulously cute skirts and dresses, and all are completely modest. Some of the items can be a bit pricey, though, so I always look to their sale for something a little closer to what I can afford.
downeastbasics.com
I would say that Down East is very similar to Shabby Apple, so if you need more options, go here!
eshakti.com
I like Eshakti because it is pretty unique. It let's you choose the length, sleeve length, and neckline of most of their dresses, so you can take a dress that's immodest and alter it to fit your standards.
limericki.com
Lime Ricki is a good place to find this year's swimsuit! All of their swimsuits manage to be modest while still being extremely cute and flirty.

Anyway, looking at swimsuits inspired me to create some outfits for spring break. Even though it's still five weeks away, and it's -3 outside, there's nothing wrong with dreaming.

Clothing Haul: Thrift Store

I got the opportunity to spend the day with one of my close friends today. We found a lot of super cute thrifted items, so I just wanted to show you the newest editions to my closet! I love buying used clothing because it gives me an opportunity to get creative when styling unique pieces, and I also know that when I show up wearing a shirt to school, five other girls won't be wearing the exact same thing. It's kind of fun knowing you own something completely different from everyone else! Not to mention, you spend considerably less money.

 This button-up has a really beautiful lace collar, and I think it would look really nice tucked into an a-line skirt.
I actually got this one at Old Navy today, because who can resist cheap graphic t-shirts?
This is basically a combination of two of my favorite things; cozy knits and stripes! Black and white also make this a very classy piece that I'm excited to wear!
Hmm...looks a little familiar doesn't it? I just can't get enough of stripes. But who can blame me, they're a staple in every wardrobe. Take advantage of this long weekend to have some retail therapy!

Style Icon: Alexa Chung

I thought it would be really fun to make a post once in a while about the people who give me some major inspiration and have influenced my personal style. A lot of other people also look to Alexa Chung for inspiration and it's not hard to see why. Her fun, quirky outfits manage to make her look exciting but classy at the same time. Here are a few of her stunning ensembles that I will forever wish I could afford.

Cream with envy

With all the crazy weather we've been having lately, I might have an excuse to pick up another sweater or two. I really love the cream chunky knits that I've seen everywhere lately. One of the best ways to style a neutral is to add a pop of color! Since marsala is the color of the year, I think the perfect way to wear one of these sweaters is with marsala pants, riding boots, and some classy accessories. I also wanted to include a picture of my hairstyle today! I just did a small French braid to the back of my head, then gathered all my hair into a ponytail.

"Pin"spiration

Hello again my lovelies! I really want to get back into blogging, so hopefully I'll be posting a lot more regularly. Anyway, I wanted to share a few things I found on Pinterest while I was trying to get in a Valentine's Day mood (kind of hard when the last date you went on was over a month ago). But without further ado, here are some casual outfits I think would be great for the candy-filled day, as well the outfit I wore to church this past Sunday!
