Fall. My most favorite time of the year. The leaves start to change colors, the birds start to migrate, and I get to pull out my warmer color items. It also means I can get back to my warm coffee drinks. Yum! My favorite fall accessories are scarfs and cardigans. It is much easier to find modest apparel, and layering becomes a breeze. I also love this time of the year because it means the holidays are right around the corner. Good food, lots of family-time and all of the beautiful decorations. It also means that my wedding date is coming closer! Thats right! I am getting married! As we get closer to the big day, the post will be catered to wedding (but still fashion) related topics!

This outfit is a first for me. I have never worn anything with animal print before! Now that I think of it, it is actually a double first. It is also the first time I styled a skirt on the blog! When I saw this skirt, it was just to cute to pass up. Maxi skirts are so versatile; they can be causal or dressed up, and they will always be modest! I love how I can wear my tights underneath and stay warmer as it gets cooler. However, I did notice in these photos, that the skirt is  a lot more see-through than I anticipated. It is an easy fix, all I have to do is sew in a longer lining.

I also love the colors in this skirt, it allows me to incorporate a lot of other warmer colors, such as olive, burgundy, and gold. I look forward to paring it with sweaters, peplum tops, and blazers!

With all this talk about Fall, what do you love about this season and what are your favorite Fall accessories?

Thanks for reading!

Sweet Mint & Confessions

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Sweet Mint 1

    

Sweet Mint 6

Lately I have not been posting and for the longest time I could not figure out why. I kept making excuses, too tired from work or too much homework and not enough time… Whatever they are, I realized they were keeping me away from something I love doing. The biggest issue right now is that I can not stand looking at myself in photos and in the mirror. I am at a place in my life, where I don’t feel healthy or happy with my weight, my clothes don’t fit me the way I would like, and I cannot stand being photographed.

Last night while researching, I came across a quote that talked about doing something because you love doing it, and being authentic about it. I started this blog, because I want break down the barriers between modesty and fashion. Because I love fashion and I wanted to have a place to express my style. I wanted to inspire and remind other girls that value the look of modestly that we can look great, and let our inner beauty be expressed outside as well.

So putting my issues aside, and being fueled with the reminder of my love for fashion, I put up this post. Although I am not crazy about the fit of the clothes on me right now, I do love the color pallet of this outfit. Lately I have been loving the jewel tone colors. Emerald green (the official color of spring), pink, royal blue, gold, and mint green. I love the combination of green and pinks with the hints of gold. The weather has been chilly during the mornings, and pleasant during the afternoons – perfect for layers medium weight full-sleeve button up shirts and a fun peppy blazers. That way if I get warm, I can take off my blazer and still feel covered. I chose skinny jeans as bottoms for they balance the blazer and button up creating an overall casual but still sophisticated look.

This post is also significant because it is the first post of February, my favorite month of the year. This month is going to bring great change, because not only is it my birthday at the end of the month, but is also the month for Fashion Week! I am getting my self a gift early this year. My gift to myself is going to be a healthier me. I am going to eat better, exercise, and get my weight to a place, that when I look in the mirror I can walk out my door with the confidence I need to tackle the day.

So how do you guys out there keep healthy? I would love to hear your exercise regimens, eating habits, and overall motivations to keep heathy! Also, what designers looks and work are you look forward to most! Can’t wait to hear what you all have to say!

Thanks for reading and here to a healthier us!
