3 Days of Fall

This first blog post is going to be about 3 days of fall. In one week I had 3 days where I went full out on fall. Fall is probably my favorite season of the year. I love everything about it. First off, everything PUMPKIN. Who doesn't love pumpkin, it screams fall. Going to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin hot chocolate, pumpkin candles, and my favorite, baking every possible sweet out of pumpkin. Second, it is the perfect opportunity for the “basic” pictures of throwing leafs with friends, and your PSL (even if you are like me and don't like coffee). Third, fall clothes. The essential fall clothing pieces which include: comfy sweaters, blanket scarfs, flannels, boots, hats, ripped jeans, leggings, sweater dresses, the list can go on. I can proudly say that, I LOVE FALL and can't believe it is Christmas time and winter now!

For the first day of fall, it was a rainy and cold fall day, so I decided to make pumpkin hot chocolate. This stuff is the best. It tastes like fall and gives you a warm feeling inside. 

For the second day of fall I had my friends come over and we had a fall photoshoot. We decided to go this wooded path in my neighborhood and take some cute fall pictures. 

Us trying to get a cute picture with my dog, but it wasn't really happening.

The third day of fall my mom and I went to 2 different pumpkin stands/farms. The first place we went to had homemade pumpkin ice cream. I went to that place last year and could not wait to go back. After we went there we saw a field/stand on the side of the road with a ton of pumpkins and hay bales, so we stopped to get some pictures.

These little pumpkins are my FAVORITE! They are the cutest things. 

That is my three days of fall. I loved spending a couple days just taking in the fall fun. The next month is going to be so fun because there will be and Christmas and New Years. During Thanksgiving, my cousin (mentor) Krista came out to my house along with 4 other family/cousins. I hope you enjoyed this new blog and follow along to see new outfits.

Welcome to Fashion Unexpected

Picture of me before Homecoming a few weeks ago

Welcome to Fashion Unexpected! My name is Maren and I am a sophomore in High School. I am starting this fashion blog for a year-long English project, but also want to continue it after school is out for summer.  For this project, we had to choose a topic to study for the year. Since I have a love fashion and new trends I chose to make this blog! We also had to have a goal to complete by the end and mine is to post 15+ blog posts on Fashion Unexpected. I will be posting about current outfit obsessions around 2-3 times a month. For this project, I also had to have a mentor, and I chose my cousin Krista Robertson who is a fashion blogger in NYC. If you want to follow her blog, here is the link: She is coming to NC (where I live) for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to learn a lot more about fashion blogging!

Here’s a little information about me. My love for fashion started when I lived in Europe for four years while my dad served in the Air Force. I have traveled around much of the world and hopefully will travel around a lot more when I get older. The trends are much more fashion forward in Europe, and it was fun to see their creative outfits. I am 16 years old and some things I enjoy are fashion (obviously), hanging with my friends, and running. I love to come up with new outfits and can't wait to share them with y’all! I hope you follow along to keep up with my new blog posts.
