Fall Things That Make Me Say “Yay” | 2017

I was digging through some old blog posts and saw that I did a “Things That Make Me Say ‘Yay'” for fall back in 2014, so I thought it would be fun to create something similar for this year.

I’m not sure where everyone else is located, but the weather here has been H-O-T and nothing at all like typical fall. I am so ready for cooler weather!

Fall Fashion with StyleWe

I don’t know about you, but where I live we’re getting teased with the first hint of fall, and I couldn’t be happier. I love layering up and finally being able to enjoy hot coffee :) And of course, fall clothes are the best! I teamed up with StyleWe to find some great fall pieces. I’m looking forward to lots of black & whites, neutrals, and pop color. StyleWe has lots of great finds, from basics to designer clothes, and they have some interesting suede suites and sexy dresses. Here are some of my favorites!

What I Wore | Portal Style

Oh hi, it’s been a while? I took an unexpected hiatus, which turned out to be longer than it probably should have. I’ve taken the time to re-focus my energy and determine where I’d like this blog to go. It started as a place to house my doodles, somehow morphed into a fashion blog, then a lifestyle blog, then dipped its toes into the geek culture scene and now I’d like to position it to be a bit of all.

I may start posting things that differentiate from my norm until I find my aesthetic and voice again, but I do have some posts queued up that I can’t wait to share.

I bought this awesome Companion Cube shirt and have been wearing it non-stop. Bonus points if you know what this is from! So far, only a cashier at Target has guessed :> This has already become my favorite geeky clothing item I own!

Color Me | White

Kitty and I are back with another Color Me series! And this month we decided to do white. I actually found this one to be a challenge for me, only because I typically go for bright colors. But it was fun! And with it starting to feel more and more like summer with the heat, white was perfect.

Let’s talk about those amazing illustrations – who knew white could have so much depth? And I love the paper dolls project – so creative.

Be sure to check out Kitty’s post! And I’m curious…what inspires you about the color white?
