If you don't already know, this past year has been whirlwind. My boyfriend and I made the big leap from DC to LA, encountering exciting, difficult, unpredictable, and challenging moments... all of which are part of the journey, and I don't regret a single ounce of it. We've made so many new friends, seen so many new places, and have picked up so many new hobbies. (Still trying to master paddle boarding in the strong pacific currents.) My reason #1 to celebrate.

Reason #2: Today I turn 26, phew! I've made it this far with a few bumps in the road. We all know that our 20's aren't necessarily the easiest decade. Turning 26 in particular, is the year you officially, OFFICIALLY become an adult. Getting the boot from your family insurance plan along with many other things, I'd still say this is an age worth celebrating. When you're in your 20's, you're in your prime, you're man handling your career as you climb that executive latter. You also have the capability to go wherever and do whatever you want in the WORLD before being tied down and raising a family. I'd say it's all pretty liberating.

And now, the obvious reason #3: Starting October 31st, everyone transitions into full holiday spirit. From Halloween, to Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years, and more, everyone is scrambling into black Friday fever purchasing gifts and garland. 

With all of this being said, you can make every month of the year worthy of a celebration for no particular reason.

Sometimes, all it takes is a fun pair of shoes to make the perfect statement. Not only do they stand out on my feet, but in my closet too. I think its important everyone has at least one item like that. I love the idea of giving my go-to Jbrand jeans and my overly worn Forever 21 chambray blouse a little something extra. You don't always have to go on a shopping spree in order to come up with fun, innovative styles... it can be more thrilling to mix and match pieces that are already in your closet!

Waterfall

One of the best feelings is when you go shopping and find that special item that goes perfectly with something(s) that are already sitting in your closet. For me, the special item was this waterfall dress by Bless'ed are the Meek. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that fall is here in California... it still feels like summer. So, in attempts to transition my wardrobe into its current season, I figured this dress would be the perfect addition. I loved the thought of mixing up neutral brown and black tones for a little boho chic style. Paired with my favorite lace up booties, (you can find similar ones here) the look is complete!

Like every other girl in this world, there is one common clothing factor that most of us all share- we get tired of the "stuff" in our closet. The best though, is when you find that one shirt in the back corner that still has tags on it, and has never been worn. For me, it was this perfect fit, white crisp blouse from Jcrew. Keeping it simple with a pair of distressed skinny jeans and some fun jewelry completes the look. 

Make sure to check out my friend's new jewelry line, Elyse by Nicole! There are lots of fun, bold pieces, perfect for all types of occasions. Today's look was styled with a few of her gold bangles, and two beautiful blue layered necklaces. Use the code, KSTOPAK for 10% off her entire site

When you think of fall, most tend to pinpoint darker, warmer tones like burgundy, forrest green, and burnt orange. Well, prepare to be mind blown- hold me to this, you ARE allowed to wear white after labor day! Yes, you read correctly, you are allowed to rock your favorite pair of white skinny jeans year round. There is something very feminine about mixing light, neutral tones together within the same wardrobe palate. It gives off for a simple, yet sophisticated look. Paired with the perfect Gigi New York, uber mint clutch, and you have yourself a final product!

As you know, I tend to lean towards more comfortable outfits as opposed to following the motto, "beauty is pain." That is what I love about these Dolce Vita, wedged booties. I feel like I could walk for miles in them. Paired with a cute striped skater skirt, and a timeless jean jacket- you'll be ready to take on the day! Today's post is brought to you by #Piperlime #momentsofchic Make sure to check out all of their new fall items!
