First Taste of Fall

Shirt: Thrifted, $1 // Skirt: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Necklace: Forever 21, $8 // Boots: Blowfish, courtesy of Famous Footwear

Today's high temperature was in the low '70s. After relentless triple-digit heat, the cool, rainy, fall-like day definitely inspired me to bust out some boots! For this look, I went for a clash of moods with the classic plaid, glam necklace, edgy boots and geeky glasses. More heat is right around the corner, but it was nice to get a preview of the cool days ahead.

I love all the clashing styles, mixing high and low end fashion is a great idea for the fall!

Chaucee said...

Yay for pre-fall looks! Today is supposed to be a little cooler so I hope to wear something a little fall inspired but we'll see if the humidity creeps back up.

Deets on the glasses? They are fab!

Oh my. I think I just realized that when I was cutting my bangs I was subconsciously wishing I had a short do like yours. I see your bangs now and realize that that abstract picture in my head was actually yours. My new do looks nothing like yours, but Thought I would just let you know that images of you float around in my brain and tell me to do things. I even wore a shirt like this with a necklace like that over the weekend (didn't post it) and when I got here today I was a little bewildered. "how did she do that?" obviously we just have a similar aesthetic ideal. Makes me want to pay closer attention but at the same time, not, since obviously your pictures, once they go in they hide and quietly influence me. I am freaking crazy.

This leaves me truly longing for the Fall! And I love that polish - what is it?

Santina said...

This is such a lovely fall look. I adore the buttoned up shirt with the necklace layered over it. This post makes me want to pull out a pair of boots just in case the weather gets cool enough!

So cute, and more inspiring than some of the other fall preview looks i've seen recently. Until today I was having a hard time formulating where I was going for fall...

Totally cute I love your accessories and the necklace is so pretty!!!!! I can't wait for cooler temps but i'm so glad you get to rock out in the fall-ish bits of clothes

emilypanda said...

I am loving this outfit, I wish it was cool enough in DC to wear my fall clothes! I'm also always coveting how little (compared to me) you spend on your clothes! I wish I was patient enough to be so thrifty!

origami said...

Thanks. :) I actually have Mint Sprint but hadn't tried it. It has definitely moved to the top of my list of back logged polishes to try out!

Jilliebeanie said...

Cravin' fall! You look amazing!
