September is upon us. This month, I'll turn 20 (does this birthday even count, since it's not 21?), and figure out how to balance school, work, and blogging (all on 6 hours of sleep, max). Maybe this mood board is slightly muted because of the twinge of dread I feel when I think about the fact that I was in class today from 7:25-10:35am, then again from 1:40-6:30pm. I am, however, very excited about the challenging schedule I've taken on this semester, and I can't wait to see what I'm able to accomplish.
Fall begins in the latter half of this month. Am I thrilled about this? Absolutely. Not only does "Fall" (I put that in quotations because I know it will probably be 85º for most of the month) mean outerwear (one of my favorite wardrobe categories), but it also means the start of the holiday season. September means October is right around the corner, which means Halloween is coming, which will be immediately followed by Thanksgiving, and then my favorite holiday of all, Christmas. Though these next few months will most likely fly by, I hope I have some leisure time to discover, and subscribe to, new fashion and lifestyle publications. I need to fill my room with more inspiration (No, I'm not a hoarder. I just want to surround myself with cool content that will allow me to continue to produce high-quality images to my Instagram and website). If you know of any awesome mags, please let me know!
I'm also always on-the-go, so I would love to invest in a fashionable and functional backpack, like this mini backpack by Mansur Gavriel. Simply constructed, this beautiful piece is the perfect carry-all for both academic and professional endeavors. Running around also means I should probably select a piece of footwear that's more ergonomic than my Adilette Slides, as much as I am obsessed with them. I'm thinking of finally hopping on the New Balance train and purchasing a super cool pair of neutral-colored lace-up sneakers that will go with everything from jeans and a t-shirt, to a slip dress and longline coat.
