Fall Transitions







Outfit details:
Imogene + Willie hat
Eileen Fisher maxi cardigan (c/o)
old J.Crew striped shirt
thrifted skirt (similar style, also lots of options on Etsy)
Flogg platform sandals (on sale 60% off, also available in taupe)
ASOS quilted cat cross body bag
Karen Walker "Anytime" sunglasses


I took these photos right before Flores colored my hair, and even though it was merely a halfway point to its current state of blue/green, I really enjoyed having the lighter color. Ever since I stopped coloring my hair all the colors of the Manic Panic rainbow (which was over ten years ago), I've gone as dark as possible. I've tried every color under the sun - except blonde - but I feel most like myself when my hair is either black or a very dark brown. I'm having fun with the blue, but when I'm over it, I might try going back to this lighter shade. We'll see. 


I've been wearing this skirt a lot, lately; it's the perfect transitional piece. I recently found it at a Florida thrift store, and since this type of skirt was popular in the 90s, I highly recommend checking your local thrift stores, Etsy, and Ebay for similar ones. You're sure to find something! I almost didn't buy this one, which seems crazy when you consider the fact that it literally cost me $2 and I've already worn it four or five times.  I just didn't feel like trying it on, and wasn't sure it would fit. Have I ever mentioned that I hate trying things on? Either way, I just outed myself as the laziest shopper in all of existence. The end.

  6. The colors really feel like fall. Not the sad melancholic one, but flourishing, full of ripe fruits and auburn leaves.

  14. I have to say that I really, really love the blue/green color your hair is right now, but the color in these pictures looks beautiful too. That skirt is absolutely gorgeous, and I can't believe that it was only $2!

  19. Love the look. I remember having a ton of skirts like this. I traveled several times to Central America with a medical missions group in the '90's, and we had to wear skirts the whole time we were there. Mine were pretty much all this style.
