..ready for fall..

Today, the weather was so refreshing. For a change, it was cloudy with some light rain and about 20 degrees cooler than it has been for several months now.  Aside from the breath of fresh air that the cooler temperatures bring, fall is also a time that I really love because I enjoy the natural color pallet the re-addition of scarves, tights, and all of the other cozy garments.  This season I have already gotten a feel for what I am sort of gearing toward in my wardrobe.  Though my tendancy is to wear a ton of neutrals with gray, black, and brown, I really feel the need to incorporate a pop of color, and I really love muted but bold colors for fall.  I am keeping an eye out for mustard yellow, burgundy, dusty blues and pinks, dark teal, and so on, so forth.  Since the weather was so lovely today I went ahead and implemented my plan.  
While I am on the subject, here is another example of my fall inspiration.  I was over at one of my favorite blogs, Calivintage, and she is hosting a giveaway in correlation with the amazing vintage shop, clever nettle, which challenges you to make a set on polyvore using some of the items from her shop.  Let me tell you that there are so many great items that it was hard to narrow it down to just a couple.  There is only one night left for the contest, but there is still a discount offered for Calivintage readers until Sept 7th!  Here is what I came up with...
The skirt and hat are the items I chose to feature from the shop.  I wish I really had this outfit =)


  1. Love your outfit! The shoes look great with the matching belt.

  2. I agree! I'm so excited for all the fall clothing to be worn and layering to be done.
