A Taste of Fall

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Things were relatively low-key around here, but there was one exciting element to the weekend. We got a taste of fall – I’m talking sunny, 70-degree weather with zero humidity. And, I loved every stinkin’ second of it.

A Taste of Fall

A Taste of FallWith the exception of dresses, I am just not a summer dresser. I don’t find the clothes to be all that flattering to my body type or to my taste. So, I am a happy girl that I finally can start to layer. I do like to wear lighter colors and fabrics year round, such as tops with lace or embroidery detail. Add a lightweight cardigan to the mix, such as this super soft navy option from Betsy Boo’s Boutique, and boom – I’m ready for fall. As much as I’d rather wear these pieces with jeans, I’m not unrealistic that it’s still a tad too warm for that. So, boyfriend jeans and sandals remain on constant rotation.

In other news, thanks to all of you for your input on this post last week. I know that I make way too much out of a haircut, but hey – I don’t think I’m alone. Your comments were super encouraging and provided the confidence boost that I needed! Tomorrow is the “big” day, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to go for the cut. Might as well send August out with a fresh new look!

Are you excited for fall weather and clothes?

    We got a little taste of Fall this past weekend when it was in the 70s in Seattle, and I wish that I could have taken it with us! I love the idea of layering clothes as well during the fall, and that cardigan is so pretty over your lace top! I can’t wait to see how your new haircut turns out! I’m sure that you’ll look beautiful!

    I was just thinking how stunning your hair looks in this picture, so I’m eager to go back and read the haircut post now! I definitely feel you on not being a summer dresser- fall styles are always so flattering. I thought the weather here was getting closer to that, but we’ve just been hit with a heat wave:(.

      Thank you! I’m hoping I didn’t make a mistake with cutting it yesterday … It’s back to being warm here, too. I’m over it!

    Eeeek can’t wait to see what you do with your hair! I mean why not?! It’ll always grow back, right?! And I can’t even believe we’re talking about fall, I have NO IDEA where this summer went!

    i am with you, i don’t feel great in summer clothes, or think they are flattering on me, but i still prefer summer over fall times a thousand. hahaha. your hair looks fabulous and can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  15. 8.29.16

    Ohh this sweater looks perfect for this time of year when it’s still kind of warm. Your hair looks so pretty in these pictures, but I’m so excited to see what you do at your appointment tomorrow!

    I am not a summer dresser either. I don’t feel as confident in shorts. Bring on fall! Loving the cardi with your shorts.

      We do have pretty stellar weather, if I say so myself. 🙂 Although, I’ll be annoyed in two months when we have snow – lol!

  23. 8.29.16

    SO cute!! It was actually pretty hot here this weekend. I am just soaking up every last bit of summer and can barely think about fall haha. I’m glad that you had a nice weekend and I hope that you have a great day today! 🙂
