June's Meadow in October

spring mix for fall

We'd have a few days of beautiful warm weather in the SE and I am taking full advantage of it by wearing a spring-y combo and my fave Liberty of London print. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I feel like I've had a hard time accepting the cooler weather so far this fall - I either am in summer garb and freeze, or going into Wear All Things mode (because if it's not three shirts, a vest and a scarf, it ain't right, right?)

And time just seems to be flying by - Daylight Savings ends this weekend (November already!), so remember to turn your clocks back. Ah blissful extra hour of sleep!

Camo and Denim

camo + denim camo + denim

I always seem to have a color I veer towards every season (remember my modern red days, or viridian green or mint?), and this fall, it seems like I am all about magenta (worn pretty continuously lately - here, here, here ... nearly head-to-toe here).

So of course these flats and this bag were no-brainer purchases for me. And it helps that the shoes are super-soft suede comfortable and Le Pliege style may be my favorite travel bag - it folds into nothing for my luggage and holds everything I need when I'm trip-bound.

Navy Blazer, Midi Rings

distressed scallops

Simple does it with the outfit pieces today, so of course I had to pile on the rings and bracelets. As much as I adore the midi ring trend going on now, I am still amazed every time I wear them that they actually stay on my fingers - though I may have temporarily lost a ring or two while digging through a jean pocket, it's close quarters in there!

I hope you have a lovely weekend, ladies and enjoy some good crisp autumn weather while you still can - we broke out the electric blanket and turned on the heat recently, and the frosty mornings are some not-so-awesome reminders that bone chilling winter is right around the corner. Brrr is close.

And These Pants Again

My coworkers may think these pants are a bit "out of the box" and they are a little less subtle from anything that I've tried before, but I can't seem to stop wearing them. I've already worn these dressy-sporty pants three times aside from this post (here, here and even once for a business event with a navy blazer).

They are really comfy, on-trend, and I adore the print - even though they've been called my "MC Hammer" pants. In fact, I like these pants so much that I also ordered them in the solid black. I guess I can't help it if the MC was ahead of his time and we flow on the same sartorial wavelength (and if you are the 0.0001% of people who have not yet seen the MC's breakout jam - and those pants -  please stop for some Hammer time here).

Gingham and Olive

gingham + olive

The only way the Madewell sahara jacket looks good on me is if I belt it, so here I am again trying to reign in the wide body. I actually really like it this way. However, there's no way to squish together a lot of material without appearing slightly unkept, so I am trying to cultivate the whole I'm-too-cool-to-care-I'm-rumbled look here. (Yes, I am an oxymoron here - trying to look like I'm not trying).

Wearing the olive green hues again - this has been a favorite color of mine so far this fall. What colors do you find yourself wearing a lot so far these cooler months?
