I’ve put a lot of thought to this whole dressing like it’s fall when it feels like summer thing and I think I’ve found the solution: dark colors, bare limbs, no layers. Those are the rules of fall here in the south.

This weekend we stayed late at the shop because the fine ladies of Emporium Pies had a pop-up shop on the square in McKinney. It’s all anyone of us at the shop could talk about all week. Rumor has it they are opening this fall which means Fridays will now be known as Pie-days at bloom. (I’m really proud of that one.)

  1. I am still having a hard time giving up the bright colors. Especially considering it is still hot enough in Dallas that I am still able to swim in the evenings. But I am slowly coming around and parting with my summer attire, much to my chagrin. Yay for bare limbs though!

  2. Beautiful look! I love the shirt tucked it. Super “classy-casual.” Work it, girl. πŸ˜‰

  3. I want sooo badly to pull out my sweaters, but I know if I do I might spontaneously combust. Tried to wear a cardigan today, and wound up taking it off after like, 20 minutes.

  4. Ooh… pie… and that tee.. both are winners! Sounds like a home run weekend!

  5. Love the outfit, as always! I was hoping one day you could do a post on the makeup brands/colours you use. Your makeup is sensational and we have similar colouring, so I’d love to copy it!

  6. Emporium Pies is SO great! Their shop in Bishop Arts is just adorable. I imagine the McKinney location will be just as fabulous! Lucky you! Love the outfit as always!

  13. You have beautiful legs. I hope that statement doesn’t make me sound like a creeper. πŸ™‚

  14. What size are you wearing for the T-shirt? Did you size up for the relaxed fit?

  15. The surprise of tweed in this skirt is such a great pairing with the casual tee and metallic heels — definitely saving this outfit for inspiration later πŸ™‚

  21. I read your blog because I love the things you say & the way you write, but generally I feel a bit bummed because your style is way more preppy and colorful than mine (not insulting you, just saying I can’t really copy your outfits). This outfit, however, may have possibly made me shout “Yes!” in my mind. I’m not going to be someone who insists that you dress differently than your own style just so I can see it, that’s silly, but I do hope that, if you enjoyed this outfit, you’ll post some edgier looks in the future too. Either way, you pulled this off well, and I look forward to reading more of your intelligently funny posts!

  23. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve

    had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
