Sweater Weather

I can't believe how quickly this year is going by. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was ringing in the new year with my family in the Philippines. Now, October is coming to an end meaning the holidays are right around the corner. Falling back into the routine of school and work, it's time to start saving up for Black Friday shopping and Christmas presents for the family. It's always around this time of the year that I really begin to reflect on just how much has changed in the past couple of months. This year particularly, has been very kind to the growth and development of my blogging and social media, and I know that I owe it to every single one of you that takes the time to read and check out my posts.

I've had this sweater sitting in my closet for a couple of weeks already, purchased while it was still hitting 80-degree days because I was that excited for fall weather. I found myself looking at more and more turtlenecks to bundle myself in for the fall and winter and Aritzia delivered with their sweater collection for the season. I decided to pair this with a simple pair of leggings and OTK boots from Nordstrom. As for my handbag accessory, I opted for my Saint Laurent clutch, which doesn't get out enough due to the amount of things I carry and not having straps. However, when there's not much needed or there's a dressy evening out, I'll always take this clutch out for a trip. To be able to showoff the loose neck of the sweater, I wanted to tie my hair up in an attempt of a messy bun that didn't look too sloppy or too neat.
