Fall is by far my favorite season! I feel like it’s the only time my true style shines through. My second favorite season is spring because I can wear my warm-weather clothes with fewer layers. Since fall is top of mind (and timely), I thought it would be beneficial to share my top 2019 fall trends. If you’re lucky, you might already own some of these items, as they’re less trendy and more classic which I love!
Over the years, I enjoy looking back at my style choices. Personal style should evolve as trends and preferences change. But what does it mean when you think you’ve created an entirely different look, only to realize that you wore something similar almost 4 years earlier. Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did it Again” comes to mind, but really?!
- Sparkly cream jacket, check!
- Neutral undershirt, check!
- Gray denim/cords, check!
- Unique brooch, check!
Wow! In which year did Asa wear it better? LOL. I hope that “2019 Asa” is a bit more fashion forward than my 2015 self. I do know, however, when I was younger, I was more adventurous with my fashion choices and dare I say it, “trendy.” I would rock a jumpsuit, overalls, culottes, hats, neck scarves — you name it!
I don’t know about your city, but the weather is still cold in Seattle! While I wait for warmer temperatures to arrive, I’ve been extending the life of my winter wardrobe by incorporating touches of spring. I often wonder, what should you put away and what is best to keep out?
A few nights ago, I had another sleepless episode. Unfortunately, this has become my norm as I can’t seem to slow my mind at night. The more responsibilities I take on — even if they’re fun — the harder it is to sleep. When this happens, I typically take a sleep aid and read a book. That night, however, I took the sleep aid and instead decided to catch up on reading blogs.
With a 9-5, fashion blog, and newly established jewelry business, I’m often asked how I manage. The truth is…I just make it work, even if that means sacrificing my house (it seriously looks like a cyclone went through it), sleep deprivation, and a neglected husband. These things are terrible, I know, but I want to be completely honest. I’m hoping to correct these bad habits over time and at the top of my list right now is to spend more time with my husband. So important!
