I’m hoping to watch the Victoria Secret fashion show tonight sometime, I have to do a lot of studying for my final exams on Monday though to that may not happen on the exact timeline I would like, but I will still get to it.

I’m writing right now because there are some changes that I would like to incorporate to this blog.  Yes, I will still talk about fashion, beauty and shoes because I still love these things and they are a huge part of my life.  But I would also like to add some more lifestyle to my blog.  What did I do today?  The pictures from the trip to the park.  DIY crafty items I try (emphasis on the word try).  My attempts at actually completing Pinterest items I have pinned.

So yes, there will still be fashion pieces on here, but I’m going to evolve the blog as well.  I hope you stick around to see where this blog goes and enjoy the ride with me!

Before I get into the topic I want to cover today, a couple of housekeeping items.

– I will be trying to blog on a regular schedule; however, I just started a new semester at school and am only 3 days in and already so overwhelmed.  I don’t have much time to sleep and am so busy I have to literally plan out when to shower or eat a quick meal.  It’s insane but I am hoping I get it all figured out soon!

– I have decided to continue to blog about fashions but I am also going to use this blog for everything else that comes up:  sporting events, music or movies, school drama and any other insignificant huge item that comes up in my life.  Hopefully you will stick around while this branches out into the new directions.

Now onto the reason for this post.  I think I have “discovered” my first fall trend for 2012.  Now stick with me, this may have already been discovered by you and everyone else months ago but I don’t usually notice these types of things (hence the “rookie” in my blog name).  The other day I requested a J. Crew catalog.  I haven’t looked through one of their catalogs before and am typically not the “prepster” type of person but I had heard some great things about them and lately had been seeing other postings and liking what I saw.

Well, I got the catalog yesterday and I am in LOVE!  I think I could easily add a little prep to my wardrobe.  Pretty sure I would like one of everything.  Anyone reading this that wants to send items my way, I will accept with open arms 🙂  This catalog has 71 pages and of those 71, 14 of the pages feature some type of polka dot item.  I don’t usually do the polka dot look but I am liking the way J. Crew does it and may just have to invest in a few dotted pieces.

A couple other trends that I noticed throughout the catalog were stripes and bright primary colors (think oranges, reds, blues, greens and yellows).  Overall it looks like the fall looks are brighter and more fun than I have seen in the past.  Say goodbye to the dreary blah fall colors and hello to bright, polka dot fun!

Which fall trends are you most looking forward to?
