Red, Red, Wine

Hey there!

     Fall is my favorite season. (I suppose I should be saying "autumn" because "fall" does not exist in the UK. I'm a rebel and sticking to my American roots.) Layers, a break from the soft hues and pastels, and hot beverages make me one happy girl. To be honest, I'm fickle when it comes to anything. I'm always up for something new and fresh when the past becomes a bit redundant. Fall delivers new challenges: a new way to wear your clothes. Adding a light jacket, tights, scarves, or knee high socks completely transforms your summer clothing into fall attire!

     Nothing feels more fall-like than the color red. You can call it burgundy, wine, maroon, cranberry or oxblood... I love it all. 

I was inspired by these redberries planted next to the houses I see on my daily walk to school. I decided to put together a casual outfit with pops of red for a sunny Sunday afternoon.

I've been dying for cooler weather just to wear this beautiful Free People jacket with victorian style lacing on the back!

These BCBG floral-cut flats have been a staple of mine for almost six years! Worth every cent. They will be ready to retire soon, I think. :(

I love layering this collared shirt over jackets. Fun and chic!

Looking back on these photos, I realize I could have paired a gorgeous kelly green jacket with this outfit to zone in on the redberry flower inspiration! Ah, well. This is a learning process after all, right?

Jacket: Free People
Burgundy Cords: Lucky Brand

Thank you for viewing my first styling post!
I hope to include more of these and some inspirational and educational posts from my fashion marketing lectures. I also must give thanks to my talented boyfriend for his help and photography skills. If you'd like to see more of his work I will link his website below.

Until next time,

Cheers to a fresh start.

Hello! My name is Jennifer.

I am a 23 year old American girl living in the beautiful little city of Winchester, England. I've had passion for fashion since my preteen years and I'm happily exploring this love of mine while acquiring my Masters in Fashion Marketing and Branding. Here is where I'll be plotting my journey into the topsy turvy world of fashion and personal style. 

 My personal interests include thrifting and stretching that dollar as far as possible. I (very sadly)  only brought two large suitcases over from the States with me and this forced me to have faith in versatile pieces. My aim is to show how to personal style is about raw creativity, not just expensive designer clothing and the quantity of clothing in your closet.
I have much to learn about style, fashion, and the technical work behind it all, but I'd love to take you with me on this exploration. Blogging, photography, and web design are all new to me so I do apologise for the bare bones of my blogging platform at the moment. It should grow with my education. :)

Until next time,  

Latest Stylin's!
