falling back.

I have just had an epiphany and realized that Fall is my favorite season.  Not only is my birthday located in this wonderful season, but wearing big sweaters and boots and tons of layers may be some of my favorite things in the world.  Here in Virginia the humidity has been hiding some so I have been breaking out my sweaters and blazers just because I can't wait anymore!  Outfits like this I know will pollute my fall style while mixing in some more prints, boots, and layers.  But until Fall is finally here I will enjoy the rest of summer :)

So, last week I got to head to the Big Apple for The Accessories Show in NYC.  It was awesome.  It was a great experience but also super tiring.  Working the show all day and then trying to take in the city at night and meeting up with friends at night was exhausting!  Learning the workings of what goes into these wholesale shows was really great and really helped bring everything I've been doing all summer with my internship together.  Today is actually my last day and I can't believe it is already the end!  

Time has flown by this summer and am sad that for the past 2 weeks I have been a little behind on here.  But with my internship being over, mostly the terrible commute, I will have tons more free time so updates frequently will be coming.  Hope you all have been well and I will be catching up on all blogs/getting back to people starting today!

So, I don't wear dark colors all the time, though I sometimes feel that I do not prove this fact often enough.  I love neutrals and these soft pinks/nudes for this monochrome look.  So girly and simple.  With or without the linen blazer, it really is a favorite summer outfit of mine. 


As I am off to NYC tomorrow, I will try to snap as many pictures of everything as I can but it is a work trip for my internship, so I may not get as many as I hope to.  But be sure to follow along on instagram, @vadarling, and twitter, @ohvadarling.  Have a great weekend J

bright august.

It's August! I can't believe it.  The summer has raced by so fast, and I know August will not be an exception to that.  My schedule has been insanely busy but I have enjoyed almost every minute of it.  With August here, and most of my spare time at night spent watching the Olympics (have you been watching?!) I feel that for the last week, I have been less productive as I have been/want to be. 



With a new month comes new focus and a new drive to accomplish everything I want to accomplish this month.   I will be squeezing in a trip to NYC (this weekend!!), a road trip to visit my best friend, and a little baseball game and concert combo.  Being on the go makes it hard to squeeze in outfit pictures and blogging, but I am trying my hardest.  I also, hope to check off a lot of my summer bucket list in the nick of time!  While I’m enjoying the last few busy weeks of summer I hope you are too, and be sure to follow me on instagram, @vadarling, to see all the cool things I will be up to this month!
