I feel like I've been waiting so long for fall. California weather sorta sucks. I wake up and feel like it's gonna be cold because it's so foggy I can barely see the trees outside my window, and it ALWAYS burns off and I end up sweating like a madwoman by the end of the day. Lately it's been STAYING cold (ish) though and I'm just getting so pumped for fall. Eryn did a fall post a little while ago, and I got inspired by that and started a fall folder. I also have been doing a lot of art that totally feels fall-y to me and works with all these photos perfectly. (They're all from my newest journal)

So there are a few different aesthetics I've been diggin this fall. First is this like black and white and nude sort of look. Black and white stripes or geometric patterns and little doodles.

Source Unknown, but this is what came up when I image searched it in google:

Loser shirt. 
 Journal entry I did over the summer with Girls lyrics
Sketches I did when I was sick (again)
 I catch my tears in my journal because I am weird like that and I catch my tears in my journal for #memories amirite?
Journal entry I did very inspired by Gemma and Eryn
Excerpts from Victoria Selavy from ‘The First Book of Philosophical Sexts’ by Victoria Selavy and Stephen Michael McDowell

Mustard Yellow Pressed Flowers
This is supposed to lead into the next colour scheme/over all aesthetic. I've been really into mustard yellow these days. Probably because it's fall. I saw a chunky knit circle scarf in mustard yellow and could hardly keep myself from dropping the $50 for the the amount of fall that was happening in one article of clothing. Is it weird that I've been digging sunflowers/all pressed flowers in fall? 
Another journal entry. The left post-it's drawing was inspired by Claire

I can't remember the name of this green but the green in the image below is like SO fall to me. It's sorta grey-ish green. That paired with light nudes and doodles and plants. 
Gemma's Sketchbook (aka my dreams)
I really dig the tennis shoes with nice clothes and like these tight black jeans/I dig the pleated skirt+tennies look. also (Source) (kind of the source, they don't take the photos apparently and they didn't have a real source so that will have to do for now. If anyone knows the real source lemme know)

Hey guys!
Sorry it's been so long! In my absence I've made a post on The Pulp Zine, added a lot to my journal and collected a ton of fall inspiration. I've been feeling really happy lately, and wearing BRIGHT ass colours to show it. Also I found a post on tumblr that shows you how to colour your eyebrows with eyeshadow super temporarily (like a day) so I've been colouring them all the colours of the rainbow!
(this was a post on tumblr after Ned said this)  and I felt awesome. This week was good. 
(I'm wearing my jelly shoes here but they're so clear it looks like I'm not wearing shoes)
This is a recent page in my journal that did inspired by Daniel Clowes from reading Ghost World :)
I took these of my friend Claire for The Pulp Zine (it's the post I linked above)

Also, my really awesome sophomore buddy took a video of me in my room for the Do Not Enter Diaries! She did such a good job and I'm so excited to share it (though I'm really afraid you'll all hate me when you see my mannerisms/voice)

Also I made this watercolour in my journal from a photo I took after I ate a lot of frozen blueberries.
