My Fall Play List

Well it is finally that time of year, FALL!! The weather has been perfect here, brisk yet still warm, sunny with just enough wispy clouds making all the fall colors pop. Fall is the start of no radio season for me. Fall and Winter are the two seasons I want to set the mood with my tunes instead of hear the hits all day long. Here are my tunes for getting me into the Fall mood...

Some of these artists are similar, I like kind of slower indie dark and moody songs for fall. Lana DelRey, She and Him, Pulp, and Kate Nash fight in that category. M.I.A. and Santigold are my pump up and jam a little on those sunny Fall drives. Too much depressed romance music can put you a little too much in that dark mood, so you need some loud girl power in there.

Some other artists who appear during Fall-
- Beatles
- She wants revenge
- Yeah yeah yeahs
- Talk radio (like real talk radio, not a band)

What artists and songs make you think of fall?

Inspiration Quote

I just got home from a weekend trip to Arizona! I had never been there before so I was pretty excited. I was also excited because I went with my mom, step dad, and foster brother to visit my old foster Siblings (the ones I sent my bats and bubbles post to). I will have a post to share some of that trip soon. What this post is about is a little quote that I thought about a lot today. I had a three hour flight, a two hour wait, and an hour and a half bus ride home. I was watching season 6 of Skins and listening to some Kate Nash today. I was put in a very odd mood, almost like I knew exactly who I was and saw myself as a total stranger at the same time. Anyway it reminded me of this quote I found on the postsecret website a few years ago..

I like this post secret a lot. It means something very different to me than it did when I was in the early years of high school. Back then I was waiting for a man, waiting for someone to help me find myself and to be with. Now it means more than that. It means I only need myself to be me and grow. I am waiting to experience new things, to see new things, and to take on life in my twenties.It is one of those things to think about on those days when you are in a funk but in a good way. Sometimes getting blue is what makes you get to the happiest. 

Hope this helps with Monday fog and any life troubles.

What I Wore

Hello everyone! Classes have started and I have had my nose in a book or been taking notes since the start, so my blog time has been cut. I have a little time now to share an outfit I wore and can't wait to rock again! Enjoy!

Top: TJ Max
Skirt: TJ Max
Boots: Forever 21
Earrings: Ragstock

Can fall weather just be here already? This is yet another one of my fall inspired looks that I can't wait to ware more once it cools down a little. These are one of my favorite pairs of boots and they go with almost anything. I was inspired to buy these earrings from watching the tv show 21 Jumpstreet. Judy from it wears so many long crazy earrings and it adds a fun edge and playful look to an outfit. Well back to school work and waiting for fall! Have a good weekend!
