Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson- Relator
It's c-c-c-cold! I think fall arrived early this year. I have very mixed feelings about this; Like I said in my last post, fall is my absolute favorite season (yes, my birthday is in the fall. And yes, you are very welcome to shower me with gifts. I'm a size 8.5 in shoes, fyi.) but I also don't want to see it come so soon. Time has been whooshing past lately and I can't comprehend summer actually finishing. Didn't it just start?!

I turned on the heat yesterday because I had goose bumps all down my arms, despite wearing 4 layers and resembling the michelin man. I've also started to wear pants again. And I really don't like pants. You know I'm frozen to the bone if my legs are actually covered!
Blouse- Thrifted
Pants (they're really not leggings... I swear!)- Joe
Shoes- Franco Sarto
Key Necklace- A.Co Designs (thanks hun!)
Cuff- Aldo
Bracelet- Self Made
Sequin Belt- Gift
I'm carrying on my minimalist/classic theme. I just can't seem to get excited about wearing anything too fussy these days. I'm also loving these loose oversized blouses. And since 4/5 of the population in my little town think that they're hideous, and would also never step foot in the thrift stores where I find them, I've been given the (self-appointed) task of scooping them all up and giving them a loving home. My life is really tough sometimes*.

And here is a completely gratuitous shot of my three little tomatoes that my darling plant produced! I can't believe I didn't kill it. Yay me! 

*sarcasm. : )


  1. Ooh, lady I love this outfit! So classic & simple but oh so gorgeous! Great thrift find!! And your little tomatoes are adorable. I need one for a brown rice salad I'm making tomorrow, toss one over would ya?

  3. Haha, well I'm going to take that as a compliment because I think she's beautiful...I used to get compared to her a lot when I was younger, what am I doing wrong now? lol.

    I love this outfit, simple but totally classic and chic. The shoes have such great geometric lines, and the colour of the leather is perfect. You look lovely!

    Love Alexandra

  4. Your tomatoes! Yippee! I bet they'll be the tastiest tomatoes you've ever eaten.
    And this outfit is classic perfection...
    I've been meaning to ask if you'd show us your looks like it's worth a post...if you're into that sort of thing.

  10. The weather has been weird here all summer too and it was disappointing not to have a full summer! That blouse of yours is gorgeous and I love the pants with the brown shoes. Hope you get a few weeks of summer back before it officially turns to Fall.
