Yay! It's FALL! :) (I've always liked the word "fall." Maybe it's because, every year without fail, I fall in love with this season. And the leaves also fall off the trees. ;) The only thing I don't like about this time of year is how quickly it flies by. I feel like each season is over before I am able to fully drink it in. (Except for maybe winter. This is New England.) Before you know it, Christmas will be upon us.
In the meantime, I love the fact that one of my favorite colors - a yummy, burnt orange - becomes suddenly vogue, and I get an instant seasonal boost just from wearing it. This outfit came about when I found (well, my sis Lydia really deserves the credit) this amazing skirt at Savers (during that crazy, annoying 50% off sale that comes like three times a year). It's in very dancer-ish, and so flow-y and drape-y and perfect. :)
The awesome thing about this skirt is its versatility. It has an nice stretchy waistband that can be folded down, unrolled so that it stands up and makes the shirt/skirt combo look more like a dress (see 1st pic), or paired with a belt (see 2nd pic, above). I can't wait to try it out with different blouses and come up with even more options.
What I'm Wearing
- Top by IZ Byer California - Kohl's

- Heels by Mootsies Tootsies Collection - thrifted
- Belt - Kohl's
- Sunglasses by Candies - Kohl's
- Earrings by Touchstone Crystal - gift
- Necklace - made by me
- Bracelet - hand-me-down
The sad news is, the bottom heel of one of my shoes broke off (and was lost) at a wedding I attended last weekend. (Fortunately, it was at the end of the day, although I walked around Whole Foods afterwards with a limp. ;) The good news is that summer is over and the shoes wouldn't be worn much more this year. And now that I am working part time as a supernanny ("Just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down!") I'll have more pennies to save, and can search for an awesome replacement pair next spring. :)
Anyway, I hope everyone is falling for fall. I've got just one more week to be twenty-two before the clock strikes midnight and I turn into a pumpkin. (Who would have guessed that that's what happens to you on your twenty-third birthday?)
Have a lovely weekend...
