OOTD: Stripes and Sparkles

Hey everyone! Hope you all had an awesome Tuesday! :)
Here's an updated outfit of the day from today; I wanted to jump back into things by showing you one of my favorite styles for fall: boots and tights with a dress! Fall is the perfect time for the layering, so take advantage of it. You can even pull off this style by using your dresses from summer and layering it with tights or leggings, a sweater, and riding boots. My style is also pretty neutral, which is yet another reason why I love dressing for fall! This time of the year is the perfect time for browns, blacks, creams, and grays; but don't be afraid to throw in a splash of color or sparkle in order to keep your outfits interesting! Anyways, I hope you like it! Enjoy!

Long Time, No See!

Hey everyone!
So I have finally returned to the blogging world, and to be perfectly honest, it feels great! :) I've been working on changing things around a bit, I hope you like it! Although I will be back to my usual posts as soon as possible, quite a few things have happened since January, so I thought, why not reintroduce myself by showing you all a few things that you have missed:

My dance team made it to STATE! :) It was an incredible experience and we were all so proud of all of our accomplishments!

I also got to go to my first Junior Prom! It was incredibly amazing, and I spent my night with my best friends and the love of my life! Needless to say, I can't wait for this year's Prom! Dressing up is definitely my favorite part.. :)

This summer, my family and I went to Disney World in Orlando, Florida! It was by far the best vacation i've ever taken, and we made so many memories that will truly last a lifetime!

And finally! A few weeks ago, I had my final Senior Homecoming! It was by far the best one yet! (the first picture is from the senior flash mob we did earlier in the week!!)

And if you haven't noticed, I said "Goodbye!" to blonde hair and reverted to my natural hair color! :D I'm loving it so much more. Well, thanks for checking in! Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things here soon! My birthday is next week so hopefully by then i'll have another post :) But until then!

OOTD: Out Shopping

Hey everyone! :)
Here's another quick outfit of the day from a few days ago! My family and I went shopping all day, so I wanted to wear something cute but not too impractical for the busy day we would later be having. I opted for a pair of my favorite dark wash jeans, riding boots, a really great sweater, and my quilted pink cross-body bag. This turned out to be a great choice, because I was pretty comfortable all day while still looking cute, and having a cross-body bag while I shopped made my life a little bit easier! I'd definitely recommend something like this for a shopping day or other outing; an adorable outfit that's not overly fancy is the perfect way to go for these kinds of situations.
Just as a disclaimer, we were rushing to get out the door, so the pictures aren't really my favorite, but I really wanted to share the outfit with you all anways! I actually got the sweater for Christmas from my wonderful mother, so thank you Mommy! ;)

The picture didn't turn out very well, but this is my new bag! It's a quilted, baby pink cross-body bag from Asos. I love the gold details on it, as well as the chain and leather strap. Plus, it's just large enough to fit everything I need; no need to lug around a huge tote!

I loved the detailing on the back of the sweater; the bow added the perfect touch, it made an ordinary outfit just a little bit better!

Shoes That Every Girl Should Own. [Fall/Winter Edition]

In my opinion, there are certain shoes that are must-haves for Fall and Winter. These are not necessarily the shoes you use once in a lifetime (such as heels, etc), but more the shoes that are very versatile and that you'll definitely find are a great piece to be able to fall back on. These shoes are some of my personal favorites, as well as shoes I recommend or just see as a great piece for your closet:

1. Riding Boots

boots boots boots!

These babies are my foundation for Fall. Seriously. If you don't already have a pair, you definitely should look into getting some! They come in a ton of different colored leathers, with different buckles, etc, on them. Riding boots go really well with any pair of skinny jeans, a sweater, or a dress. Tights, Leggings, and Jeans all look great with these boots. Also, try wearing boot socks or legwarmers inside of them so that they peek out a little from the top, as in the picture. (Not only does that help to keep you warmer, but with the right thing, it's adorable!)

2. Ugg Boots

Uggs are great for Fall and Winter. They come in a ton of different styles, heights, colors, and designs, so anyone can find at least one pair that suits their style and personality! I own the black sequined Uggs (shown above), as well as plain gray Uggs, which are great when you want something comfortable that goes with pretty much everything. Most Uggs also include a super-plush fur lining inside, which adds to the comfort and warmth of the shoes. They also have a decent tread on the soles, so tackling icy winter days usually isn't too much of a challenge here! Also, I do know that there are a lot of Ugg knock-offs, but if you have the opportunity to opt for the real deal, definitely do! They hold up much better than the fake brands, and they are of a much higher quality.
(By the way, I am not payed to promote any of these brands. My thoughts are from personal experience and I only want to share what I know!)

3. Rain Boots

I stole this from ali.. seriously, the most gorgeous rainboots ever!

Seeing this, you may be rolling your eyes. Rain Boots? Seriously?! Yes. Rain boots may not always be the most fashionable thing, but if you can find the right pair,  you're as good as gold. For example, look at the photo above. The glossy red boots accented with adorable red ribbons on the back will automatically brighten up any outfit. Of course, these would be best with a more neutral outfit, since too many colors in one outfit is NEVER a good thing, unless done correctly. Wear rain boots on the days with the worst weather; the weather may be trying to get you down, but with these boots, not only will your feet stay perfectly dry, but you will also look upbeat and cute in these boots. One brand I really recommend checking out is Hunter. Their rain boots are great, the quality is amazing, and they come in a bunch of styles and colors. Whether it's purple, yellow, red, or blue, pick the boot that best fits you! :D Haha, yes, I went there.

4. Mocassins

Mocassins are a great in-between shoe to wear during the cooler days of fall and the warmer days of winter. They come in a huge variety of colors (whether you're looking for a bright color, a metallic, or a more traditional neutral) and styles. They can be plush and warm, or simplistic and cooler. This is a great shoe for anyone, because mocassins are so widely popular, and they're made to tailer to both men and women of any age group. Once again, these aren't probably the shoe you should choose to wear with your little black dress or your designer skirt, but mocassins are a great shoe to have in your closet for more laid-back fashion days.

5. Sorel Boots

SorelSorel Boots

Sorel boots are a great piece to have in your closet for when the weather turns bad. They resemble a more-fashionable snow boot, but the company designs a wide variety of styles, fabrics, and colors for you to choose from. They are very waterproof, so rain, snow, and ice is never a problem. Plus, a great tread on the bottom of the shoe allows you to walk easily without slipping. You are able to choose Sorels with unique patterns, colors, etc (top left), or opt for a more traditional version that will still look fashion-forward for winter. Whatever you pick, Sorels will allow you to stay warm and dry while still looking cute on those aweful winter days.

That's all for now! Hope you enjoyed today's post!
Much Love, Haley Noel. :)

Outfit of the Day: Out to Dinner

Hey everyone!
For today's post, I wanted to do an Outfit of the Day to give you all a little inspiration for what to wear when you have to dress nicer or even a little formally for a dinner, party, or dance! I wore this outfit out to dinner with some friends for my birthday, and I got a ton of compliments from friends, etc. Of course, it was a little cold when I wore this, so I paired the outfit with a black sweater just for when I was outdoors.
I loved the dress; it had a keyhole cutout in the middle, and because it's a simple black and white, I can always reuse it another time and still change up the rest of the outfit! It's a great piece to have in your closet because it's so versatile. Also, I'm not usually a huge fan of "classic" color schemes that are so often used, but the black/white/red of this outfit really worked well, so I didn't mind afterall! I paired the dress and shoes with a chunky statement necklace, and that was all the jewelry I needed!
Hope you enjoy! :)
