The cemetery is still providing me with great fall photo opportunities. When Kevin asked me where I wanted to take outfit pictures this day and I responded with "the cemetery!" he just gave me a face. The leaves around here all seem to be at different stages. Currently the cemetery is one of the only places showing us full on beautiful fall colors. All the other regular spots I take pictures at are still nice and green. That's great though, I'll get a long time period to take pretty fall pictures!

I'm super excited about this dress. I picked it up at Salvation Army a week or so ago in the Halloween section. It's a handmade vintage dress and it fits perfectly. It's made from a really thick material so I'll be able to wear it all winter long. Plus the pattern is fabulous. It's fun without being too out there, well, at least not for me.

 It seems as though blue dresses and I kind of have a thing. Right now as I type this I'm wearing a blue dress. I look in front of me at my collection of dresses and over half of them are blue. I'm not sure what it is, blue isn't even my favorite color (well, for my hair it is!).  I just love me some blue dresses!

Happy Monday!

  7. I LOVE this outfit!! The blue with the yellow and your hair! And the hat! And oh my goodness, the belt!
    Most of my dresses are blue as well. It's come to a point where I've told myself to stop buying blue items (of any kind)(unless they are perfect, of course...)!

  23. Do you ever feel weird about thrifting hats? I can't seem to will myself into doing it.
    Your outfit is fabulous though! I love blues and yellows together.

    1. I dunno, I mean I can feel weird about buying anything from a thrift store. It just depends on what kind of condition it was in. I wouldn't buy a disgustingly dirty jacket just like I wouldn't buy a disgustingly dirty hat. But all the hats I've picked up second hand have been clean, and in great shape so I don't think it's weird at all.

  24. I feel the same about the park near Dominick's house.
    It is the best place to take photos because the leaves are amazing.
    The sunlight seeps through the trees so perfectly.
    I just love it.

  28. Do you mind the polyester fabric of lots of vintage dresses? i loved the curry dress from modcloth but noticed there were lots of reviews saying it piled quickly and was not a very nice fabric. what did you think?

    1. Not at all, I rather like polyester. I think it's comfortable and it's warm!

      I also didn't think that dress from Modcloth had a bad fabric. It's soft, doesn't look weird and isn't piling for me!

  30. I'm really quite envious of all the shapes you can wear; I have never bought a vintage dress because the shapes just don't seem to sit right but you always so look so lovely and this outfit is no exception. I love that your photos make it look like you have a story to tell xx Lizz

  31. Your outfit photos are always so pretty, but these are especially lovely! That sitting photo is my favourite, love the atmosphere and colours! So more photos from the cemetery, yes please! :)

  32. I am always so jealous of your ability to take risk in fashion. Sometimes I think to much about what I wear that I never really get to just put on what I like! But reading your post and seeing the way you can style clothes just gives me the courage to not care and do it! Thanks for the inspiration girly :)
