I’m totally loving this time of year. Mostly because I can layer and wear a ton of my favorite pieces at the same time. Obsessed with this denim jacket from ZARA. It’s not terribly cold here in Atlanta yet and so pairing with a knitted scarf and a beanie is perfect for this type of fall weather. I visited the food trucks here in Atlanta the other day and there were so many great eats. (Mac the Cheese? DELISH!)

I’ve got to keep it real, when Cotton asked me to be a Fashion Influencer and help find finalists for their Road to the Runway contest I was like, “Do I have Cotton style?” I started looking in my closet and realized that some of my favorite pieces from my preferred fast fashion retailers are made out of synthetic materials I can’t even pronounce.

After slight disgust, I started discovering that indeed I actually do have cotton pieces in my closet that are great. Like this denim jacket. And my camo jacket that I wore here. It seems like submissions for the Southeast are full of cute A-line dresses, skinny colored denim and army jackets. Obviously, my cup of tea.

Have you submitted your photo yet? If so, I wanna see! Send me your photos with the #cotton24hours hashtag. And be sure to follow Cotton on Twitter and Instagram!

    I’d feel terrible entering the contest being that I’m already here but I love how they’re handling this year’s show over last year.

    Love this outfit and that Zara jacket and this post totally makes me mad I missed my chance to hit the food trucks yesterday.

    P.S. Love the blog’s new look.

  6. Ria: do it. LOL.
