Fall means football

Fall means two things for me…. Fashion and Football. I am so blessed to live with one of my best friends (in a super cute condo, might I add) AND support our boyfriends together at our Alma Mater-Arizona State University, Go Devils.

As much as I love my girly little numbers I’m a sucker for a sporty (and sassy) look!  After 3 long seasons, Erin and I have pretty much mastered this style…

Here are my favorite basics for every season, paired with my customized jersey (obvs) ….

1.  Water is a MUST & totally fashionable in my book.  These games last almost 4 hours, and the $9 soft drinks start to get old (well expensive) after a while.

2.  Scarves are lifesavers when it starts to cool down –  if you’re worried about how to style it, I would suggest an infinity scarf (thank me later).

3.  Converse are comfy and classic.  End of story.

4.  I live and breathe a good cross-body, and the Marc by Marc Jacobs “Natasha” is heaven.  Just enough space and sass, all in one.

5.  Theres nothing, I repeat NOTHING I hate more than freezing on cold bleachers.  Keep your long locks warm with an oversized beanie.

6.  I will profess my love for Paige Denim sometime in the near future, but the “Verdugo” ankle skinny is my jam.

Happy football season, lovelies 🙂

Trust your struggle.

For some its to get married, start a family, and work towards being homeowners (definitely not me).  For others it’s continuing your education in a master’s program or in law school (no thanks, currently drowning in student loans).  For me, I had a nice clean slate.  I finally attained my degree in four years – as planned, while working full time at Nordstrom as a Personal Stylist, and had the time of my life.  Then in May of 2013 came graduation … and the big girl questions came flying at me.

This gave me an anxiety attack for 3 reasons:

1.  I’m a perfectionist – making me extremely goal-oriented, with a 5 year plan – yup. I’m that girl.  I knew I was in love with fashion but didn’t LOVE working in retail.

2.  I’m a control freak.  Not knowing what was next literally made me sick to my stomach.

3.  I’m independent.  I absolutely could NOT move home (Northern California) and press pause until my life came together.  I had to figure it out on my own.
