Turning Your Summer Dress into a Fall Outfit



The hardest part about the changing seasons is changing your wardrobe. If you're like me, then you've just spent the past summer building up your collection of shorts, tank tops, and summer dresses and now you're struggling for some autumn inspiration. Instead of heading out to buy new sweaters and flannels, save your money and incorporate your summer wardrobe into your fall wardrobe!

5 Ways to Wear a Red Sweater


 Ever since the first time I watched When Harry Met Sally (in particular, the scene where theyre rolling out the carpet in Harry's apartment), I've been searching for a red sweater. It seems like something that would be easy to find, but that doesn't seem to be the case...at least not in my experience. I wanted a quality sweater for a good price which can be hard to come by. As to be expected, I turned to thrift stores to fix my problem. It took a really long time for me to finally find the perfect red sweater, but lo and behold, here it is! And I got it for only $4! So, I thought that this week I'd give you a few outfit ideas for this staple item.

Incorporating "Business Casual" into Your Wardrobe

Formal wear has always been a staple in my closet. You can never overdress (unless you wear your prom dress to school), and dressing for success is ALWAYS a good idea. However, I understand if wearing a suit and tie to school is a bit uncomfortable. Thus, business casual fashion was born. Not only do you look smart and professional, but you can wear your comfortable jeans while doing it. I thought it would be a good idea to show you two outfits that are great for school and will get you ready to give that presentation that's worth half your grade.

How to Wear a Headscarf 3 Different Ways


 Currently I've had an infatuation with headscarves. They add a feminine and classic vibe to any look which makes sense considering images of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly sporting the gorgeous headscarf look in the 60's are still floating around the web. So, here's three different ways for you to wear your headscarf.

Throwback to Some 90's Inspiration

 After many hours spent watching Friends and classic movies like Clueless, I've grown a love for 90's fashion. I like how colorful and funky it can be, but I also tried to create a look that wouldn't stand out as much but still stay true to it's time era. The second look I made (pictured above) is more of a classic 90's look, but I'll get into that more throughout the post. Here's two looks I put together that'll hopefully inspire you to channel your inner 90's kid.

Casual Chilly Summer Day OOTD


 I don't know about where you live, but sometimes in the summer a few cold spells are casted on the weather and honestly, I love it. It gives me a little taste of fall which is enough to get me excited. I'm ready to whip out the sweaters and fuzzy socks and snuggle by a fire. However, don't let me get ahead of myself. Living in a state where the winter weather is harsh, I need to soak up the sun as much as I can. This has led me to putting together an outfit where I feel cozy in the chilly air, but still keep a somewhat summery vibe.

3 Ways to Wear Your Midi Dress this Summer


A floral midi dress has been on my list of wants for a while now and while searching through more racks at the thrift store, I found this Lord and Taylor lovely for only $6.00! After sewing on a few loose buttons, I began to think of all the different ways I could wear it. I'm sure there's plenty more than three ways to wear it, but these are my favorite.

The Perfect Summer Purse


For years now, I've had a purse at my side. Though majority of the time, I don't bother to match it to my outfit because I simply don't have enough purses to do that. However, I've come to the realization that there's an affordable way to have more unique purses.

Plenty of girls my age can get away with only carrying a Vera Bradley lanyard with cash, licenses, and debit cards stored inside. I have absolutely no idea how they do it because I always need to have a ton of stuff with me when I go out. (I'm the friend who brings enough stuff to practically move in whenever I spend the night). This explains why my recent purchase is perfect.

My Go-To Summertime Drink

 

As each day gets hotter and the sun shines brighter, I find myself grabbing the same drink day in and day out. Although lemonade is known to be the summertime drink, this one is going to give it a run for its money.

Fashion Shows and Conservatories


Back in February was my birthday, however my friends, Nat and Katy, told me I'd have to wait till spring to get my birthday present. Finally spring came around and my present was a day filled with plants and fashion. They took me to a snazzy breakfast, a conservatory on Bell Isle, and a college fashion show. A day filled with my favorite things!

Prom 2017


That's right! As you can see by the title, I went to prom! There's nothing better than getting dressed up and having a night out at a formal dinner and dance. Believe me, I danced the night away with my wonderful boyfriend and date for the night, Ryan.

Life.


I've been blocked and not in the bowel sense. When it comes to my blog, I'm feeling incredibly uninspired and can't come up with any new content that I think will be worth your while or that I'm capable of creating. So, now I'm saying "screw it!" I'm going to write something, boring or not, just so hopefully I can get back in the groove of it. I love Sarah Grapes and I don't want to give up on all that I've worked for so far. I mean, it's been a year of running this site! It's time for me to make something of it!

Bring on the New Year

Well look at that! My first post of 2017! I figured that since I haven't written in a while I'd just talk a bit about all things pertaining to this past year and the new year to come. I know that for a lot of people, 2016 has been one of the worst years, but for me, this has been one of the best. I feel like I've grown a lot since 2015 and have definitely been involved in a lot.
