Collars and Cardigans

Hello! I hope you are all having a great day!  This is my first blog post and I could not be more excited.  I hesitated for a very long time whether to start my own blog but I finally did it!  I do have to give most of the credit to my older brother, Craig, who told me not to think about the "what ifs" and just do it.  Sometimes people need someone else to push them harder than they could have ever pushed themselves.

Today I wore a preppy look since the new school year is just around the corner.  It is such a bittersweet time because it only consists of dreaded work and waking up early but it also means that fall is on its way too.  Autumn is my favorite season; I love dressing up for Halloween parties, eating apple cider doughnuts, walking across the golden carpet that the falling leaves make, baking gooey cinnamon buns on a Sunday afternoon, and burning my pumpkin caramel latte candle.  This pin striped collared shirt is such a staple in my closet because I do like the preppy look at times and if anything makes an outfit look classy and sophisticated, it is a collared shirt.  High waisted shorts and flats are also always an elegant twist to the common flip flops and jean shorts.  Little accessories like my watch and cat eye sunglasses always make my outfits look more put together and are definitely conversation starters.
