What I wore; feels like fall

Monday, September 19, 2011

the details:
shirt - thrifted
skirt - thrifted (80 cents!)
belt - came with this dress
necklace - a gift
rings - forever 21
shoes - c/o Wanted Shoes
camera bag -  Jo Totes

Last week we had our first day that it felt like fall! It was in the 60's (fahrenheit, which is about 15 C for all my friends outside the US) and it was the first in a long time I wasn't sweating wearing a belted outfit. I swear wearing a belt makes it like ten times hotter than it really is! Even though I've been waiting and waiting for this weather it was a little shock to my system since just one day earlier it was the kind of heat where you sweat just sitting around.

I'm really excited to get to work today. I had *bingo* moment on Friday and am really looking forward to doing some research this week. I'm also starting some halloween projects today. so exciting!!

Hope you have an awesome Monday!
xoxo
