The days get shorter and the nights get cold...

I feel like this outfit just screams autumn... Which I've been doing every time someone around me laments the loss of summer. Usually, I'm right there with them. My long days, my beach bumming, my Stephen King novels read by the handful, my iced coffees. Yes, yes, yes, all wonderful things. It just didn't happen for me this year. So, AUTUMN! That's what I say.

(Tulle top, vintage skirt from Mod Elle Vintage, ModCloth heels & knee highs)

I also just feel like I have more options, more opportunities to get creative with cooler weather outfits. I love the ease and freedom of throwing on a sundress or shorts and a tie-front top. But I always find myself longing for stockings and pulling out old pieces and figuring out ways to make them new again. The heat and humidity do tend to limit my options... And my energy!

I love this skirt. Love, love, love. It's the perfect length and colour. And it's wool, so I'll be able to comfortably wear it all fall and winter.

Have a great weekend everyone! Any fun plans? 

Title from "The World At Large" by Modest Mouse. (Even after hearing this album thousands of times over the years, it still rips out my guts. That's good music.)
