6 Topshop Sweaters for Fall

Topshop has always been a favorite store of mine. They literally have an item for every season! Also, may I add that it is friendly priced too.

Now that August is over, Fall is slowly coming upon us. Cooler weather, pumpkin spices and sweaters! Combining my favorite store and cool weather, I thought I could share 6 different sweaters from Topshop that are a must have for this Fall season.

Knitted Fit Sweater

A basic for everyone’s closet! You can layer this with a collared shirt underneath for a more preppy look or pair it with a mid-rise skinny jean and chelsea boots. This will be a key item for an “effortless” look, which is one of my favorites.

 

 

Cropped Sweater

This is great for those who live in the warmer parts of the world. Back in my hometown, Dallas, it’s Summer 80% of the year and then boom it’s Winter. With a cropped sweater, you can get in the Fall mood like everywhere else. Pair this with anything high waisted will make the effortless-chic look.

Cropped Knitted Sweater

Another cropped sweater but with details! Since there is so much details, there is no need to go over the top on the outfit. You can pair this sweater with a skirt and over the knee boots.

Long Sweater

With this cozy sweater, having it a little short in the front and long in the back, will look great tucked in with yet another pair of high waisted jeans and loafers.

 

Turtlenecks

What a great addition to your closet! For those who get cold easily, these would be great! Whenever I wear a turtleneck, it just makes me want to hug myself. Turtlenecks at times can make you feel suffocated, so make sure to pick out the ones that are a bit loose. Pair these with some skinnies and ballet flats. For a night out, heels!

Oversized Turtleneck

Lastly, I bring you an oversized sweater. The ultimate comfort look without looking like a slob. If you are petite like myself, it is hard to find a good pair of these without it swallowing you. Thankfully Topshop has a petite section to avoid that. Without having to do too much on this look, pair these with a dark wash jean and adidas.

Hope to see these sweaters in yall’s closet! Happy Fall

25 Things I learned at 25

On August 15th, I turned 26! I am no longer an “early 20 something” but weirdly now a “mid-20 something.” Seriously, where did time go? If I’m being honest (queue Chainsmokers song), the past 2 years have been the best years of my life! I didn’t enjoy my teen years nor did I enjoy my early 20s. Sure, turning 21 was great but I mean who was to say I didn’t drink before that?

This year I wanted to do something different. I took a trip with my best friend of 7 years to Europe. I chose this since, you know, I live in a city where airfare to Europe is super affordable and had to take advantage of it!

Let me tell you, it was the best trip ever! We went to England, Scotland and Italy. We met awesome people, had our first experience on hostels, learned that people our love “accents”, grew a closer friendship, and lots of self reflection. On the 15th, we were in Milan, Italy. We were SO exhausted from all of the traveling and moving around. I kid you not, we were on the go NON STOP. You would think it would have been fine. We fell asleep on buses and in public at times. So, on my birthday, you know what I did? NOTHING. I was in Milan with my best friend, relaxing. It was needed and I was so happy. Even with the 6 hour difference, I still felt the love from back home.

While relaxing on my birthday, I thought about writing things I have learned at 25. I love love love reading material like this! A person taking the time to self reflect and reminisce the moments at a certain age.

So with that, here is what I learned at 25:

  1. Always be Patience With EVERYTHING.
  2. Meditate at least twice a week, it will come in handy.
  3. Do HIIT and strength training classes. These are fun and rewarding!
  4. You can dance to all music. Line dancing anyone?
  5. Never stop being curious. The universe is full of unknown things.
  6. Study more on Climate Change!
  7. To get what you want, you need to be direct. Not a bitch.
  8. If someone wants a book to read, always recommend The Alchemist. Thank me later.
  9. Get out of your comfort zone. A LOT!
  10. Like the comfort zone, always challenge yourself. You are stronger than you think you are!
  11. Learn a new language. Come ti chiami?
  12. First thing every morning, make your bed. If everything else is falling apart in your day, just know you made your bed.
  13. Make lists! That satisfaction of crossing an item off though!
  14. Buy under eye cream. We are getting older.
  15. Take a walk and listen to the audiobook of 1984 by George Orwell.
  16. Listen to your body. It needs to rest.
  17. Take a breath.
  18. Journal. Another way to meditate.
  19. Self reflect once a month.
  20. Create monthly goals. Once the month is over, you can see how well you did!
  21. Put 30% of every paycheck to your savings.
  22. CRY. I recommend watching an episode of This Is Us.
  23. People won’t like you and that’s okay.
  24. People will love you and that’s okay.
  25. Love yourself. Always and forever!
