Hello Fall

I used to think that spring was my season. Bright colors, happy prints, skirts and heels coming from a winter of pants and boots. But I’ve changed my mind. Fall is my favorite. I’m wearing three layers today and not one of them includes tights or sweating. Life is good. 

PS: if you noticed my little arrows on my photos aren’t present today it’s because my computer has decided to slowly shut down vital parts of herself, one by one. Fingers crossed she’ll be back up tomorrow.

    I too am sort of obsessed with this bag.  I guess it's because you style often and it seems to go with anything.  Any chances of still being able to buy one?

    wow, I love the color combination! It makes me feel fallish just looking at it. Its the first day it feels like fall here in San Diego, too! I grew up in Texas though, so I know how the sweating issues go out there…

    I didn't think Fall was my season either. I love to wear bright colors, but somehow I have more dark colors in my closet and all of a sudden it's easier to get dressed. Who knew?

    I love the unexpected layering, although it looks like you've sprung a couple extra nipples. I'm guessing those are just buttons on your dress? If not, you might want to get a check-up. I bet you will be the best dressed person at the doctor's office.
