Want to know a secret? This isn't a dress, it's actually an old structure less trench coat from Forever 21 years ago that I always thought would look good as a dress. So, I finally did it, I finally belted it around the waist and...it looks to Fashion Nova-ish to me. Not really my style. Maybe if it was belted like this over a longer dress and then the layers would look cuter, but this is okay for a single day.

I'm serving you some accidental Madeline vibes. Le petite dejeuner realness.

I'm actually learning French right now for the sake of learning something new and so far, my favorite word is le petite dejeuner, which means breakfast. It literally translates to "little lunch" and that is adorable.

I recently discovered Blair Eadie and I feel like she's my style icon. This outfit is an inspiration from the big bows, colors and patterns she always wears and I feel so me.'

This skirt is a new purchase from Poshmark and is it fall dreams.

Do I wear green, or does green wear me?

Green isn't my favorite color but its not my least favorite color (that award goes purple.) I do genuinely like deep dark greens, but I'm not sure how it looks on me. Is green my color? Is green your color?

Blanket Scarf Affair

Do you remember when blanket scarves hit the mainstream years go and we all piled this HUGE scarves around our necks like we weren't being engulfed? Yeah, well, I never gave up on them. I still love them even if they are overly large and a bit cumbersome. I think they're pretty perfect for fall, a they aren't so heavy as traditional cold weather scarves are, and they are kind of versatile. Of you fold them in a triangle, they're a shawl, as seen here.

Hello, my name is Katie and I love ponchos.
Or, is is this a shawl?

This poncho is an oldie but goodie, and it is so warm, which is definitely necessary as the season gets colder and colder. I love how heavy, yet comfortable it is, and it makes a semi boring blouse and pinafore outfit into something more interesting!

Is this post a play on words of "brown cow" or is it a vague description of this outfit? It's both, y'all.

Am I wearing the same skirt as yesterday? Yes. Have I cleaned up the cat toys behind me that continually bug me? No. That is definitely something I should do, soon.

It's sweater season already! To be honest, I've been wearing lightweight sweaters since late September, but it's fully completely sweater season and I am not prepared!

I feel like I have a phobia of being cold. When I get cold, I'm cold to the core and I cannot get warmed. So, I always over compensate with layers and layers. This year, I may invest in some of Uniqlo's Heat Tech under layers that people rave about, but I'm going to do a lot more research to see if I can find a more sustainable option. That being said, this outfit is quite warm for the day, which I'm happy about! I tucked this old black sweater I thrifted ages ago into an equally as old skirt, and added some thrifted black booties and a black hat. I added a silk ribbon loosely tied around my neck for some interest and contrast, as black and brown can be pretty boring. It's a perfect Saturday outfit for the indoor farmer's market (I didn't know we had one!) and coffee.

Happy November! November has always been such a busy month for me. From my wedding/dating anniversary, to my husband's birthday, to Thanksgiving and it's related gatherings, it's a busy month! November has always been when the holiday season has really started to hit me, and this holiday season has to be better than last years!

It's a cold cold day today, with highs in the 40s and we got our first spitting of sleet yesterday, so needless to say, I'm a bit cold. Normal people would be wearing pants, but I don't do pants. I should be wearing tights but I didn't want anything touching my legs. I've practically lived in tights lately.

This skirt is a recent pick up from Poshmark. It has gorgeous pleats in a perfect color, and it lends itself perfectly into Autumn. I styled it with a beret, because tis the season, a neutral patterned top and a trench coat. I have this trench coat tied with a bow in the back because it's not so cold that I need it to be closed, but we're definitely getting there.

Happy Halloween! I'm a 70s inspired Western whimsical pumpkin for Halloween! Or, maybe that's just me on a good day.

I haven't really dressed up for Halloween in years, which doesn't bother me. Honestly, Halloween is not the holiday for me and that's okay! I wanted to keep today's Thursday outfit chill and that's what I did! I wanted to coordinate with my scarf, so I wore a yellow ochre sweater that I tucked into a black skater skirt and added sheer tights with rusty red high socks that I scrunched down, to match the main color of the scarf. I scrunched the socks down because I felt like it it added more texture to the outfit, and I didn't want to deal with them falling down through out the day.

Happy Halloween! Stay safe out there!

"I want to wear more colorful tights", I say every fall. I have recently fallen in love with the style of Blair Eadie, and she wears so many colorful tights in the most magical of ways, and I'm in awe always.

It's hard to wear colorful tights and not look like a) a child or b) like we're stuck in 2011 fashion. For now, I'll play peek a boo with a little color in my legs, and maybe get the courage to wear colorful tights properly.

Last weekend, Tony took me to an apple orchard and pumpkin patch, because though I'm Midwest born, I'm definitely not Midwest bred, so, I had never experienced one before.

It's late in the apple season, so we didn't get to really pick any apples, but the smell was amazing, and the rows and rows of trees were so cool to walk down and look at! I didn't realize apple trees weren't that tall, or at least these weren't.

It was a chilly day--those are common now--so I went with a red buffalo plaid blouse tucked into a lack pleated mini skirt, black tights and brown knee high boots. I balanced the brown boots with a brown hat and I felt like I fit right in with the whole apple picking theme. I swear, look at Pinterest, it's all plaid, denim and brown.

It's "tie everything around my neck and under collars" season. I actually do this every season, but now it's a little more seasonally appropriate!

This dress, though a little wrinkly (yes I own an iron, and yes I own a steamer, I have no excuse) is a Fall staple! It's almost sad to think that in a few weeks, it may be too cold to wear it! I styled it with a ribbon tied under the collar, black sheer tights and black ankle boots to help ground the yellow a little bit. I love yellow, but it sometimes needs to be toned down to make it more palatable for public, and unfortunately, I have to go in public today.

The autumn sun may not warm you, but it's definitely nice after some days of rain.

I wanted to keep things warm and casual today, and I'm really loving sheer tights lately. It's a little something on the legs to keep them warm, but it's also cute!

"Autumn is a second spring, where every lead is a flower." - Albert Camus

Considering how dark and gloomy it is today, I'd say Spring and Fall are alike in more ways than just temperature!

In the battle of the transitional seasons, are you team spring flowers or fall leaves?
