Outfit: Days Get Shorter

DSC_0162.jpg

Like nearly every other girl on the planet, I AM SO EXCITED FOR FALL!  While it may not officially arrive for another few weeks, the air is starting to feel nice and crispy, and it’s time to pull out all of my cold-weather things.  I’m talking about my knee socks and long cozy sweaters, boots and knit scarves.  And while I have to say goodbye to my straw boater for a little while, I’m thrilled to bring out my wool hats and fuzzy caps.  Heck, maybe I’ll even dress up Moxie in some autumn duds.  Think she’ll like them as much as me?

It’s funny–when I was a kid, I didn’t like fall so much.  As much as I liked school, I missed the fun and freedom of summer.  Now that I’m an adult and I never get summer breaks anymore, fall really gets to shine.  My autumns are always packed with fun things to do: pumpkin picking, cider drinking, baking, and long walks through brilliantly colored forests.  My friends and family get together for movies and trips.  Everyone feels energized in the brisk air and it’s like these months are rife with possibility.

I have a good feeling about this fall.  Let’s see what happens.

By the way, the skirt I’m wearing is one of my capsule items, and I got this one from thredUP!  And because I love ya guys, you can use the discount code FOREVER50 to get 50% off your first-time order of Forever 21 clothes.

  1. It’s not often that I see your hair let down like this, but I think it’s gorgeous!

    Aah, fall…how I miss thee. I didn’t grow up with fall but I’ve always been enchanted by it—plus, if you’re born in this season, it’s hard not to love it. Autumn is the best, because every street corner becomes a stage. Also, there’s Halloween! Nothing better than that 😉

    Looking forward to your fall outfits!

    1. Fall is such a lovely season and I wish it lasted just a liiiiittle bit longer than it does. And I love Halloween too! Do you have costume ideas yet?

  2. I love fall too, but I am a bit nervous this year of what to wear, as I have so few fall/cold weather appropriate clothes in my wardrobe right now 😦 Looks like I need to get shopping/sewing!
    I love this outfit you have here- that colour combination of teal and burgandy = perfection/epitome of fall.

    1. I tend to wear a lot of my clothes year round, but I layer up in the fall with lots of socks, sweaters, and hats. Sometimes I even wear my summer dresses (albeit bundled up)!
