Fall is one of those seasons where I wish I could dress what a pumpkin spice latte tastes like *wink* Pumpkin dream!

Oh! How the weather is starting to change and the leaves are starting to fall.

Mums are on our front steps, and pumpkin spice lattes are in our mugs. What a fabulous time to be alive! Autumn ♥

With the smell of cinnamon brooms dancing in the air and cold nights nipping at my nose, I cannot help but want to frolic though a pumpkin patch wearing pretty patterns *wink* BUT…since my life is a little too hectic right now to stop-drop-and-roll into a pumpkin patch, I will just have to pretend. Thankfully, I still have my childlike imagination thanks to It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. 


In just over a month, I will be turning 21. With that, I am wanting to make some changes to the blog to “grow it up” and add some more flair. So, this is just a heads up that VIP will be receiving a total facelift, but don’t worry it won’t be like an episode of Botched *wink* I am not going to spill all the beans now; however, we are going to be throwing it back to the best outfits, posts, scrapbooks, and the whole nine yards! Okay–okay, I am going to zip my lips before I say too much too soon!

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s outfit of the week and embrace the loveliness of fall ♥

Oh, it doesn’t get much better than family and film ♥  

When I made the trip home to Mississippi for the premiere of La Madame, my family and I jammed out to cheesy country songs, ate snacks, and stopped at rest stops across the states. It is always great getting to spend time with family and seeing my grandparents–a break from the dorm life is good every now and again *wink*

S0, without further ado, let’s take a look at the photos from the trip and premiere!


That moment when everyone (including the dogs) passes out *wink*

Rest stop in Alabama!


Momma and I love our Paw Riley! Isn’t he precious :)

If you have been keeping up with me on social media for the past week, you know I attended the premiere of La Madame, the first independent film in which I starred.

The 10+ hour trip, being absent from my classes, and sacrificing high-speed internet was TOTALLY worth it because it was so amazing to see a project I did at 17 and 18 finally come together. Oh, it was a wonderful trip filled with lots of hugs, laughs, and of course–fabulous fashions *wink* 

So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle I am sharing with y’all the absolutely lovely dress I wore for one of the premiere events! A special thanks to Monkee’s of Johnson City and Hutch for this look because it made me feel like a Hollywood actress at the Oscars *sassy strut*

Now, without further ado, take a look at the outfit below. Be sure to stop back by the blog tomorrow for behind-the-scenes pictures, photos from the road trip, what I wore to the night showing, and more! ALSO….tomorrow I will be sharing information about my new radio show! WOO! I won’t spill all the beans tonight *wink*
