You’re From the Seventies, but I’m a Nineties Chic

Well the sun has once again decided to deem us with its presence. The past week has been cloudy skies and lots of rain. Not that I’m complaining, but fall is so short up here and I don’t want to miss any second of it.

This week I finally got around to carving my pumpkin, proudly displayed on my window ledge. I’ve also been making time to go on little walks on the nature trail. Halloween movies are on constant replay on my tv, with some hot chocolate in my hand at all times.

One of my favorite things to wear for Autumn is plaid. It’s something that never goes out of style and there are so many options, it is always something I gravitate towards when shopping. I was pleasantly surprised with this purchase from Forever 21, it was only $15 and I was worried about the quality of the fabric. Online it was described as a polyester, but the material ended up being much softer than I expected. The skirt fit really well and the leather detail is a nice touch, overall it was money well spent. I haven’t been able to purchase much new clothing lately because I have been saving for an apartment for next year. But I did have some gift cards from my birthday I’d been saving. I didn’t bring as much clothes to school this year and was glad to get some new things.

I can’t believe it’s October already, it seems as if the semester is just flying by. Even though I just started school last month, I’m starting to begin thinking about next year. Though it has been stressful, I’m enjoying every second of apartment searching and looking for a job. This year I made a promise to myself to get more involved in my school. I was never much of a “joiner” in high school. But this time around I wanted to encourage myself to become a part of a group. Last month I joined the UW-Stout charter for Her Campus. If you didn’t know, it’s a website that features articles for girls in college relating to love life, health, events, and so much more. I’m so excited to be a member of team and as writer for Her Campus, I’ll be updating every single week. I definitely suggest checking it out, there are so many interesting articles and lots of neat ideas.

Fall Inspiration

If you know me, you know that I absolutely love fall. Autumn has always been my favorite season, and I spend the rest of the year wishing the trees were still their golden color. It is such a beautiful season and it just gives me a warm feeling. The months of fall are so enchanting, with the leaves changing colors and the smell of pumpkin spice permanently in the air. As the weather begins to cool off, I love being able to pull out all my cozy sweaters. Afternoons are spent snuggled up in blankets and drinking endless amounts of hot chocolate. I love bringing out the plaids and darker shades in my wardrobe. Knit hats and gloves are a must, with boots adorning my feet. Weekends are spent carving pumpkins or going for nature walks. I always feel so inspired during this season and enjoy every moment of it.

Railways

I am always on the lookout for new locations. So it was much to my delight that I found myself taking photos at this abandoned railroad. It was something I had seen last year, but never really considered. But while I was out scouting some of our nature trails I came upon this spot. The entrance to this railroad is surrounded by trees and is quite a ways up from the ground, but after seeing it I knew I had to shoot here. Though the sun wasn’t on our side today, my friend managed to snap some really great shots for me to post. It’s this type of scenic locations that really make me appreciate this town. Though I will forever be a city girl, I do love the imagery that the countryside provides. Menomonie is filled with so many beautiful historic locations, I’m excited to branch out more and explore new places.
