Weekly Wears: Fall Preview

The day before these photos were taken I was wearing a sweater with little antlered deer printed all over it.  I was chilly when the wind blew.  I was drinking hot beverages.  I was yearning (YEARNING) for Autumn to hurry up and get here so I could sit on my porch, snuggle up in a blanket, and watch the leaves fall. 

Sadly, Mother Nature realized it's still August and that (amazing) weather is a little crazy for the season.  That just means I have the rest of Summer to enjoy, and Fall to look forward to.  Right?  That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.  We won't talk about the suede cape, long sleeved button up, or cozy sweater I bought at a vintage shop that day.  ;)  My brain was tricked... TRICKED I TELL YOU.

Dress: c/o Tulle;  Shoes: Seychelles (borrowed from Elsie);  Belt: ModCloth;  Necklace: c/o Poshlocket;  Sunglasses: UO

Today we are picking up the keys to the new place and doing some major painting.  I am so, SO excited.  I'll share more about our new home soon.  :)

  29. Oh how I love the fall and winter! I can't wait and have been sewing up a storm of cute collared 3/4 sleeve dresses in lovely browns and mustards, to wear with thights and cardigans...but of course after a nonexistent summer here in San Diego we are getting a heatwave just now :(
    I'm loving the colors on this dress!
