what I wore : final days of fall

Monday, November 25, 2013

jacket - Target
sweater - Charter School Cardigan via Modcloth
glasses - Dylan c/o BonLook
dress - Target
belt - vintage
brooch - Kirbee Lawler
sweater clips - eBay
socks - Target
shoes - Forever 21
camera bag - Jo Totes

I think these will be the last of my fall outfit photos. By that I mean ones with a colorful background of leaves since it's still technically fall until December 21st. After that big storm last week all the trees have lost their leaves. It's like the storm fast-forwarded fall. Major bummer. Everything is bare and it will be until spring. Buuut these photos are still pretty and so are the photos from the two (1, 2) earlier fall outfit posts I did so at least there's that.

Hope you're having a great Monday! I'm getting the ball rolling on my Christmas cards today. This is the first year I'm actually on top of it and it's not even Thanksgiving yet so I'm pretty proud. I can't wait to get them all ready to send out.

  1. I live in NE Ohio as well.... it is decidedly winter-weather. I dont care what the calendar says!

  2. You have the cutest style! I've been enjoying your blog! Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the Christmas cards! :)


  3. We had one of those storms about 3 weeks ago. It definitely made it feel like winter in a hurry! I'm still totally loving this red hair on you! Good work starting your Christmas cards early! I've gone mad and have decided to make all of my gifts this year, but I've got one done already! Hopefully I'll actually be able to make it happen!

  4. Your pictures are always so great! Do you use a timer on your camera or does someone take them for you?

  5. Lovely! sometimes you make some combinations I would have never thought of, love the red and brown. Pretty lady!

  6. I still can't get over how amazing your hair color is! Love the outfit and that bag is pretty nifty!

  8. Wow, the neck cutout on that dress is so pretty, I love the colour too. Really lovely pictures, I'm already missing the colourful fall leaves in England.

  9. such a lovely outfit. red hair suits you so much!
    oh and this outfit is so lovely that it makes me want to draw you :) (would that be ok with you?)
    take care

  10. With how bitingly cold it was yesterday, it certainly has a winter chill in the air!

  11. I'm sad about the leaves, but the snow will make for pretty pictures when it comes (and stays). Although I'm not looking forward to that at all... Good luck on your Christmas cards! We're getting on it as soon as Thanksgiving's over.

  12. Love the brooch!

    Speaking of Thanksgiving, I am just curious if you are a vegetarian. I see a lot of vegan recipes on your blog, and I assumed you were either vegan/vegetarian. Hope you don't mind my asking! Anyway, if you are, it would be neat if you did a post on what you are planning, meal-wise, for Thanksgiving. I am a vegetarian and would love to see a post about an unconventional Thanksgiving feast! :D

  13. oh my GOD I am flipping out that you got that dress at Target !!!!! its absolutely gorgeous especially with your chest piece :)

    1. There are three different colorways of it at Target too! Last I saw they were in the clearance section! ;)

  14. Eeep! I am in LOVE with your cardigan chain!

  15. The new hair really suits you and I love that jacket! :)

  16. Such a cute ensemble! It's amazing how different hair can entirely change how one's wardrobe appears when put on. :)
    I love Target! I just recently went to their clothes section for the first time, and they have amazing stuff on the sale rack, too.

  17. Yea Christmas cards! I always spend the day after Thanksgiving at home, tidying up and starting on Chistmas! I put the flannel snowman sheets on the bed, take out the Christmas plates and mugs, and drink hot beverages while writing out Christmas cards. I love not venturing out into the world on Black Friday and getting a start on Christmas in a different way.

  18. I'm crazy about how your hair perfectly matches your dress, so pretty!! love that brooch as well :)

  19. I just gotta say that whenever you wear that belt, it screams "LINK!" from Zelda to me. Especially with that red, it totally screams Goron Tunic. I love it. I love love love it. That red is such a stunning color!

  20. I was wondering if you got any of that storm last week. I'm glad to hear that the leaves were all that got blown away. Cute dress! That little cut out on the chest is super cute.

  21. This outfit looks perfect with your hair <3

  22. You look so amazing on those photos with that gorgeous background I just can't stop looking. We had our first snow over here in Serbia, but it didn't last long, so now not only there are no leaves on trees and no snow on the ground, but everything is grey and muddy and wet...kinda depressing. These photos are mood elevator :)
    And of course that hair color...gorgeous :)

  23. I have that same dress! I actually bought four of them, all in different colors because I adored the style so much.

    Super adorable, as always!

  24. That dress is just so pretty - I love the color on you!
