    Five Fall Wardrobe Essentials || Basic Vintage Style

    Five Fall Wardrobe Essentials Today over on YouTube I am sharing my five fall wardrobe essentials for vintage style! I was hoping to put out some sort of content for October 1, since it feels like the official start of spooky season, but I have limited access to my things at the moment.  After some scrambling I realized I had everything I needed to film, and while this isn’t a particularly spooky video, I think it’s the perfect way to start October out. I’ve wanted to share my wardrobe basics ever since Bianca started sharing hers. Doing an autumn capsule wardrobe has really solidified the things I wear the most.…

    Five Tips to Improve Your Blog Photos

    Five Tips to Improve Your Blog Photos Today while editing my photos, I realized that I have improved VASTLY over the past nine years of blog photography. So I thought I would share my five tips to improve your blog photos, using my own photos as a base. The thing is, though, neither setup is a bad one. Both locations have pros and cons. Keep in mind that I’m not pitting these against each other(though I DO have a favorite): I am utilizing them to show things you can improve while taking blog photos. Also, keep in mind that while I do consider myself a professional, I am entirely self-taught…

    Harry Potter Vibes || Autumn Capsule Day Three

    Settling Into a Mood This outfit is not at all what I thought I would wear for day three of the autumn capsule wardrobe challenge. When I first started putting together the outfit, I had a plaid blazer with this skirt. It is a navy blue, with a muted red being the main accent, and alongside that is a small yellow stripe. In my head, the combination seemed perfect. But when I tried it on it was far too extra for my  mood. I was feeling much more like wearing something that said “I’m wandering the moors in a dramatic dress.” Unfortunately, I don’t have a dramatic dress – but…

    Vintage Autumn Capsule Wardrobe || Day Two

    Creating an Autumn Capsule Wardrobe This past week I realized that all of the clothes I grabbed to take with me for our temporary stay at a friend’s house are semi-coordinated to create an autumn capsule wardrobe! I didn’t do this intentionally. When I packed, I was literally just grabbing colors I thought I might wear for a week or so stay. That week has turned into two, and will be at least two more. So what I have is all I have at the moment. I laid it all out on my bed, and realized… I could create an entire month of outfits from the 14 pieces I have!…

    Jack’s House || Autumn Fashion and Historic Places

    In the fields of our property, behind a thicket of evergreens and underbrush, there is a tiny little house called Jack’s House. It’s no more than ten feet long by six feet wide, barely big enough to hold a bed and a few shelves, but somehow it was the residence of Jack, who was the caretaker of the old farm in the early 1900’s. I don’t know much about Jack. I don’t know whether he was old or young, whether he was married or a bachelor, whether he was employed fairly or poorly. But his house still stands today, with an old and rusting horseshoe over the entrance for good…
