The Golden Hour and a LINK UP!

4:00 AM

A random picture of the moon for your viewing pleasure.  I thought it looked cool, but I'm also a nerd when it comes to the stars, universe, and sky.

Top:  H&M (really old) // Faux Leather Leggings:  Marshalls (old) // Boots:  Nine West (old, and if someone finds the same ones please send me the link, I need new ones!)

The golden hour.  The time where so many people who are either photographers or into photography love.  I never took pictures during this time, but for today’s post I tested it out a little bit.  I know that the pictures did not come out up to par, but I actually like that they are flawed a bit.  I love that the one picture has the bokeh effect that I try to get through my photo editing apps for Instagram.  I also decided to be goofy in today’s post and show my true personality in the last few pictures.  I feel like I talk about my life and day to day but you never really get to see how ridiculous I really am.  Let me tell you, I’m quite ridiculous.  The boyfriend says that’s what attracted him to me because I will always find a way to have fun or have a positive experience.

Now moving on to my outfit.

I love love love plaid, especially in the colder months.  There’s something about it that screams fall or the holidays.  There is something so cozy about putting on anything plaid.  For today’s look I wanted to show something a little different.  Pairing a buffalo plaid shirt dress with faux leather leggings and lace up boots.  All of these pieces have made an appearance here on the blog one way or another, and most of them have been worn here a lot.  I would normally belt the shirt dress but I wanted to show a more casual, relaxing look.  I paired it with my faux leather leggings and my favorite boots.  These boots have been in my closet for years.  My mom keeps telling me to retire them.  I think she’s been saying that for the past 3 years, but I just can’t part with them!

I wanted to test out this half up half down’ish messy bun trend going on.  I was going to attempt to do the ninja bun just not as extreme but it was a bit much for me.  So I tried out this style instead.  Maybe I’ll test out the ninja bun, I just can’t bring myself to do it.  I think it’s also because I’m already really tall and that’ll add a few inches to my height so I will definitely be seen even more haha.
