This post is at least a week late, because fall is now here in full force! It was still a little warm a few weeks ago but with the gradual drop in temperature, I was bundling up more and more. Fall is so beautiful. I’ve never truly appreciated it until I started living on this side of the country. An entire forest slowly changing colors blows my mind.
A Little Chilly
Here’s an outfit I wore when bare legs were still tolerable. I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it last spring. It reminded me so much of the Dapper Gambler Suit in Fallout: New Vegas. And yes, gaming influences my style choices sometimes. I always wore that dress in the game whenever I was at the Strip. My own dress isn’t an exact replica, but pretty enough for me!
Fun fact: yellow was my childhood favorite color. I had yellow everything up until high school: yellow pens, yellow cases, yellow accessories, yellow hairclips… It’s still a fun color, although a tad too loud for me now! Blue is my favorite as an adult, but yellow still has a place in my heart.
I also dyed my hair back to brown! I can never stay blonde for too long because the upkeep drives me nuts. It’s been a while since I had this hair color. It was quite a process to go from blonde to brown. I took pictures of the steps fully intending to write a post, but uh… I gotta get on that. Haha!
- Gap fit and flare dress
- Cardigan from the Philippines (Landmark, I believe?)
- Payless boots
- Bag from Ross
- Aldo watch
- Foster Grant sunglasses
… And Chillier Still
The day this picture was taken was the first day I truly felt cold this season. In truth, it was only 65° F (~18° C)! I never do well in chilly weather. I’m the type who bundles up at 70 degrees. I get cold way too easily.
I ordered a few hats for the cooler months. I’m wearing a beret here, and I also got an oversized knit hat. I’m thinking of crocheting a beanie for myself too. I’ve become a hat collector. There’s a hat for every season! I just need proper storage for them.
Hats are an easy way to dress up a casual outfit. If you follow me on Snapchat, you know my philosophy is to hide lazy days with hats and glasses. They really do make a difference.
HAHA I CAN’T WINK PROPERLY. Just wanted to show one of my new Nyx matte lipsticks! I’m wearing Whipped Caviar. I figured I should start wearing other shades besides red and orange. I don’t experiment too much with makeup because it’s not something I like to spend a lot of time on, but I’m also envious of people who can do it well! How do you blend?? I need more practice.
- Old Navy jersey hoodie
- MBJ skater skirt
- Parkhurst wool beret
- Refresh booties (yes, I got the same boots in two colors FIGHT ME (ง’̀-‘́)ง)
Cards Against Humanity Party!
Before I close this post, I’d like to squeeze in a little announcement. I’m hosting a Cards Against Humanity online game this coming Thursday, October 22 at 11PM EDT (convert to your local time here). I’d love for you guys to join! I have a couple of people coming already, but we can always use more. Leave a comment in this post or send me a DM on Twitter, and I’ll send you the link to the game before it starts. Hope to see you there! If you can't make it to this round, no worries! I'll be planning more games in the future. I'll try gunning for a weekend date next. Let me know what times are good for you!
