in which it is the first day of fall

This dress is the reason I wanted to go to H&M, and its loveliness did not disappoint. The mustard color, subtle mini-pleating, and vintage vibe are just what I need this season. And I think it looks splendid with these shoes :) Speaking of these shoes, I'm grateful that they are accented with orange, because I get anxious when my shoes don't match my belt, but I'm still on the hunt for a dark brown skinny belt. This way, the light brown kind of matches the orange part of my shoes (one of those fashion faux-pas that I don't think I'll ever feel comfortable embracing).

One of the great things about having a daily blog is documenting the changing seasons. Every day there are a few more leaves on the ground and the surrounding trees slowly change colors. I think it might be time to have some hot cider in my life.

If all goes as planned, I might have an incredibly busy weekend, full of friends, food, and festive fall events. See you on the other side!

  1. Gorgeous! Need to make an H&M run... ;) But is it totally sheer? I find that a lot of their dresses are completely see through!

  2. Um, yes. This is perfection for the first day of fall. It's like 85 degrees here (in Oregon), so I don't know how I'm going to dress as appropriately for the fall as you have.

  10. That's a beautiful dress, especially the color! I saw it in H&M but didn't like the length on me. I wish I was longer! It looks lovely on you.

  12. I sometimes have issues when my shoes and belt don't match too. But mostly if they're two really different shades of brown. I'm trying to get over it!
    I really love that yellow dress you got! I wish I'd have seen it when I was at h&m the other day.

  13. Perfect! I love it when you wear yellow, as you know! It kind of allows me to pretend I have more yellow myself!
