Pumpkin Spice + Everything Nice

It’s Friday! Yay! I hope you all have had a great week and that you’re excited for the weekend ahead! I don’t know about you guys, but once the Fourth of July comes and goes, I’m ready for fall. Can we just skip over all of August and get to the cool fall days?!

As you can tell by the pumpkin spice color of this skirt, I definitely have fall on the brain! When I bought this skirt at H&M, I immediately thought about how perfect it would be for fall. But, then I was questioning myself as to why I would wait until fall to wear it when I could wear it now!

The key to styling iconic fall colors, like pumpkin spice, in the summer is to pair them with lightweight items that you would more likely wear during the current season. I came across this blouse in my closet and knew it would be perfect to pair with this skirt. I love the subtle blues and yellows within the pattern — plus it’s super light and airy. This blouse is actually a hand-me down that has been sitting in my closet for quite some time now. I never knew what I wanted to wear it with, until now!

 I think it’s so important to have at least two different skirts within your wardrobe, especially ones that could be worn year-round. I’m absolutely obsessed with midi skirts, and they’re definitely my go-to no matter the season. I’m also huge fan of this skirt’s pleats, even though they’re definitely an homage to the eighties.

If you’re thinking about ways to incorporate pumpkin spice into your summer wardrobe, consider this styling tip. Orange and blue are complementary colors, so when you need an idea of something to pair with pumpkin spice, go for blues. Whether you decide on a classic navy, or a more sky blue, like this top, you cannot go wrong with pairing blues with your pumpkin spice!

Is pumpkin spice my new summer color? It honestly might be! Now that I have the color in my wardrobe, I’m definitely onboard with wearing it more often! But honestly, wearing it makes me even more excited for fall. I love all of the warm colors, the pumpkins and corn mazes, the hot apple cider — all of the fall feels! Is anyone else’s favorite season fall?

When fall time rolls around, I’ll be pairing this midi skirt with chunky sweaters and cardigans. I can’t wait to bundle up! I’m such a Cleveland kid, thru and thru! Summer weather is nice and everything, but I’m much more of a mild temperature kind of gal.

On a random side note, does anyone else miss the days of summer vacation!? I miss having the entire summer off, minus my part-time job! Maybe I just need a vacation, LOL! I’ve definitely got the travel bug all of a sudden and I can’t wait to see where my next adventure takes me!

Well, before this blog post turns into me rambling about random things, I’m going to leave you with this: keep spreading good vibes and positivity! You could make someone’s day by being genuinely kind and optimistic, so give it a try sometime!

Until next time!
