31 Days of Transitioning to Autumn: day 8 {Scarf Mixology}

The best way to transition an outfit from summer to fall is no doubt, a scarf. I have an ach for one of those big knit infinity scarfs…. it’ll come. But for now, I mixed up a basic outfit ( pink studded pullover, brown vest, black skinnies) by adding some different scarfs.

31 Days of Transistioning to Autumn: day 3 {Mr. Fox}

So, I pretty much felt that this fall would have no credence to it without a fox sweater. I’ve been wanting one sooo long. I think I wrote about my obsession a while back right here when I found a great handmade one on Etsy.

Well, I finally wised up and just made one.

I still have a few finishing touches to put on but I thought I’d go ahead and share with y’all. Is there anything more ‘Autumn’ than a good sweater? I love sweaters.

You know those days when you wake up in the morning feeling like a lovely movie star? Delicate and beautiful? You then go to your closet and desire to wear pink. Many many wonderful shades of pink? Then you give yourself a manicure and your ready for your day? A day at the office, maybe.

hahaha. No! Me either!!! However, I do know those days when you wake up to clouds and a little house nestled into Tennessee woods and you flip on Lana Del Rey, set it to repeat, and search out every black staple you own. You throw yourself together in a quest for an ‘elegant grunge’ effect that says to the world… today, I will be tough. Don’t mess with me. I promise! I’m not joking! I really. am. tough. Believe it! Here I come. Today, I will make art. Today, I will explore. Today will be different and special. Nothing will be mundane. I will not allow it.

Layered Up Lace Dress (31 Days preview!!)

Though I miss summer already… and neon… I love layers. Fall layers are just great. They have the ability to totally transform an outfit and I think that it’s much easier to look put together in the fall. You have more details to work with.
I adore this lace dress. If I tell you how I got it I might get in trouble, but it really was thrifty of me so I feel I must. Whilst shopping at Goodwill I found a super cute aqua blouse. However, it had a stain and a run on the front. It still had the tags on it though, so I thought ‘It’s worth a shot.’ I returned the shirt in exchange for a gift card and bought this dress and actually had a dollar left over. Thus, the dress turned out to be 100% free!!!! Not sure if it was totally honest but I reasoned with myself that someone should have gotten their money back for the damaged shirt the previous owner was simply too lazy to return it. So I did it myself and got this darling dress.

Layered Up Lace Dress for Fall with Leather Purse

As you can see, it’s a tad on the short side. So I paired it with some grey cable leggings and tall boots. That’s one of the best things about fall….. BOOTS! I love boots. Especially cowboy boots, these however, are awesome too. A nice shade somewhere between grey and brown that works nicely with most every color.

I really like this outfit. Even though the different fabrics may seem a bit much I really enjoyed the layered textures. Cable, lace, chunky sweater. It was so cozy feeling.

Lace Dress with Skinny belt and Owl NecklaceI wrapped up in a skinny belt and added the friendly owl watch on a chain, which I thought gave the ensemble a bit of charm.

Layers of Lace and VintageThe whole outfit has a very romantic feel.

This old vintage camera has been very fun to toy around with. It belonged to my great uncle.

I love this big sweater so much. It’s comfortable and relaxed and makes me feel at home even when I’m not. Invest in a nice chunky sweater this fall. You wont regret it.

Have a lovely fall day, y’all. Also…. indulge in some whimsical thoughts. They enhance a windy October day. Poetry, coffee, maple leaves, lace, books, friends, nostalgia… fall thoughts to be sure.

A Book To Encourage Your Personal Style

  In this post I have written about a book that I’ve enjoyed reading which has helped me to find my own personal style and to express myself more confidently.

I have gained a lot over the past few years from the writing of Alexandra Stoddard. Though I don’t always agree with her personal beliefs she has encouraged me in graciousness, thankfulness, self expression, grace, confidence, and elegance. She has a way of adding grace to every detail.

I would recommend many of her books. Pertaining to style I would specifically recommend Daring To Be Yourself. 

The funny thing is… with a title like that, I’d probably never pick it up myself. It sounds too ‘self-help all is great cushy mushy believe in yourself’ to me. haha. BUT… maybe you don’t even know what I’m talking about right now and either way, it’s a very good book.

Definitely worth reading for personal growth.

Daring to be Yourself

You can find the book here on Amazon for as little as $0.01!!!
