Bonjour BonLook!

Hello All!

I'm extra happy to write this post today, because I will be talking about my new eye glasses from Bonlook. They are the La Marquise - Tortoise frames. It's funny how when I first found out that I needed glasses I dreaded the idea. I would only wear them during class back in high school and through most of my early college years. I guess I wasn't comfortable with how they looked on me to wear them all the time. 

Honestly, some of the frames that I could afford back then were not that appealing either. I'm so glad for companies like Bonlook! They not only have great affordable prices but also such phenomenal styles of frames.

I have been eying the frames I got for a while. I just love the cat eye style and the fact that they come in tortoise. The only downfall is that my cheeks are too fat. Ha! The bottom of the frames lay right on top of my "cheek bones" so when I push them up they leave a mark. Other then that I have been wearing them all day and night and haven't experience any problems. It might be too soon to talk about the quality, but so fart so good.

If you wear eye glasses and are in need of new frames you should check them out! 

Thank You Bonlook!!!

      I can't remember the last time wore I one color throughout an outfit. I'm not a fan of just wearing one color. That is why you will rarely see me wearing all black. I got this dress at a thrift store by the house my husband and I just bought a few months ago...

     About that, well we still haven't moved in yet. The house needs few last changes before we can start painting, adding new floors, and kitchen cabinets. Till then, we won't be ready to move in.

     Not moving in right now is something I'm totally okay with. School is just really keeping me busy. I can't imagine having to pack all our stuff on top of everything else I'm already doing. Not now, I would go crazy. I'm on my 9th week of student teaching, that means 7 more to go!! 

     I'm glad for such a beautiful experience. I'm learning so many things and applying a lot of what I have learned.

    I hope you all have a pleasant week! I have to get back to grading papers (I'm typing this with a smile on my face... what I love grading papers!) 



Fall Pinspiration

 One of the best parts about living in Chicago is that you get to experience all four seasons. Fall, being one of my favorites! Nothing inspires me to be creative with my style more than Autumn.

I have been meaning to share this post with you for the past two weeks, but because of time I haven't gotten around to it. So here it is! Here are some of the style pics from my Pinterest boards that have inspired me this Fall...

Pastels!!! When you think of Fall these are not the first colors that pop in your head. I might be breaking the rules of fashion. Honestly, I don't know many so technically I'm not breaking any? 

Playing with textures! There is no way I could be wearing a feathered skirt or tulle in the middle of summer. In winter I may freeze, but in the Fall just add some spunky tights and you are ready to go. Not to mention that you can add even more textures with studded or glitter tights. This outfit alone is mixing knit, feathers, and velvet. 

Pops of neon are great with dark colors. I love how you can still use your neon summer blouses under soft sweaters or dresses. It could also be a neon pair of tights.

Sweaters and full skirts. This may not look good on me because of how chubby I've gotten. Truly I can care less. I have already tried it and I loved it! I look forward to pairing both more often this fall. 

Layers, layers, layers! nough said...

What are some looks you are inspired by for the Fall?
