Nothing says fall is in full swing like pairing two of my favorite autumnal colors-- oxblood red & mustard yellow! These warm & gorgeous shades are reminiscent of the stunning hues of gold, burnt orange and deep reds of the ever changing leaves during this time of year. When I think of autumn, I think of being cozied up at home in my favorite cardi, sipping on a hot cup of coffee, cuddling up on the coach watching my favorite shows while burning a yummy fall scented candle! There's something so comforting about the thought of my favorite season. I personally love layering up in my favorite wears as the temperatures begin to cool down!
Throughout my lifetime I've moved from the Bronx, to Connecticut, to Manhattan, to Brooklyn, back to the Bronx and now Queens. Before moving to Astoria, I was devastated at the fact that I would not be moving back to Brooklyn. For whatever reason, I wasn't thrilled about the idea of moving to Queens. Because I was so consumed with work and commuting to the city 5-6 days a week my first two years here, I hadn't grown to really appreciate my neighborhood until earlier this summer. I've fallen completely in love with Astoria & I can't imagine being anywhere else at this point in my life. I'm happy to say that after nearly 3 years in Astoria, I finally feel like I'm home and that thought warms my heart :)
Astoria is currently on the rise and I sense so many amazing things in the works, which has left me inspired! I'm proud to be a part of this community so, of course, I've got to rep my latest hood! My super warm, oversized cardigan is from my most favorite vintage shop, right here in Queens called LoveDay31 (check out my previous blog posts about LoveDay here & here) & my stinkin' cute tiger print blouse & vegan leather skirt is from a new women's boutique called Lockwood Style, sister store to the fab lifestyle shop, Lockwood, which I will be featuring on the blog soon! I can't even begin to express to you how excited I am to have Lockwood Style in my area! Even more amazing-- Lockwood Style stocks sizes 2-20!! Goodbye dinky shops! Hello hip, quality boutiques!
With that said, Lockwood Style is having their Grand Opening Party next Friday November 7th from 6-9pm! If you're in the hood, be sure to stop by for killer fashion finds, discounts, goodie bags, drinks & more!
