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!

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?

I'm reclaiming my business casual clothing into more casual outfits. I'm a telecommuter, and have been for almost a year, so a dedicated business casual wardrobe isn't needed as much as before, so I can reclaim some of the stuff I had dedicated to work to more outfits. It's like shopping your own closet!

Okay, okay, I promise I'll stop wearing this sweater soon! But, until then, I'm just loving how cozy it makes everything. I love half tucking it into maxi skirts to add a more casual vibe, and of course it keeps me warm in the evening! To keep this outfit from being too yellow and brown, I grounded it with a black floppy hat and black Chelsea boots.

Don't mind me, I'm just cosplaying as the golden leaves that are piling up outside.

I purposely kept this outfit monochromatic with shades of ochre and brown, and I personally really love the effect. It would be so cool if I had a longer skirt with that same coloring! Looks like I'm going to hit up the thrift stores soon...

Autumnal Colors

Don't mind me, I'm just wearing this sweater with literally everything in my wardrobe. It amazing how you can fall back in love with pieces you've had for years just because you missed them.

I've been really loving playing with the color of this sweater and styling it with warm autumnal colors, like my favorite (and only) orange skirt. I just like this combo! It's perfect for not-freezing fall weather, which we experienced today. We dropped 30 degrees in a matter of days and yesterday was in the 40s for most the day! Brr.

If you were to take a peek into my head and look for fall colors, this is what would come up. Browns and yellows and variations thereof. I just want to slap them all on my body and dress like a leaf. Speaking of which, I can look outside right now and the trees are still a stagnant, never changing, beautiful green. They eventually will change colors, but until then, I'll replicate that Judge Judy meme where she looks at her watch and taps it, as if to say "come on, hurry it up."

I used to knot my maxi dresses and skirts like this years ago until I stopped wearing maxis, which coincided with someone stealing some photos from my Tumblr and posting them to a hate site and said I looked like a hemorrhoid. That being said, I like knotting long dresses and skirts for visual interest, ans to keep me from face-planting going up the stairs.

This is such a cozy, warm outfit, perfect for fall! Chenile is such a soft fabric and I love it in sweater form!

How to extend the life of cute summer stuff: layer it over not cute summer stuff. Case in point: this outfit. I layered this yellow lace tank top over a black and white dotted blouse! It adds color and texture to an otherwise monochrome outfit!

It's neckscarf season! Though, if you look at me at any day, it's always neckscarf season. I just love how they add an extra touch of pattern and texture to an outfit. Just like how a hat changes the mood of an outfit, so does a neckscarf.

This one is thrifted and I don't know the brand, but it is massive and I love the drama of it. I decided to tie it in a knot loosely around my neck because the colors and tones match really well with the browns and yellows of this outfit. This dress is a gorgeous linen dress from Son de Flor and it's dreamy. It is a heavier linen, so I couldn't wear it much this summer, but I'm definitely going to be wearing it a lot this fall!

Happy Saturday!

Happy October 1st! October isn't my favorite month, but it does feel so distinctly fall to me, even if it is 90 outside. But, it's supposed to cool down permanently this weekend, so I'm glad that fall weather is finally approaching.
