I love days like this. The sky is grey, there is a crisp fall breeze, the leaves match my outfit... ;) This dress is perfection for autumn.

I really should just commit to doing my hair every day. I always like my outfit better when I tease my hair... is that weird? It's like an accessory in and of itself. When I was at the grocery store the other day, the cashier asked me if I was wearing a bumpit, and when I assured her that it was au naturale, she was quite impressed. Apparently she had fond memories of her mother's hairdo back in the '60s, and all of the teasing and hairspray it involved. There is definitely something to be said for not ravaging the heck out of your hair on a daily basis, but I figure since I don't straighten or dye it I'm probably better off than a lot of ladies anyway (as far as damage is concerned). <--- That's just me justifying my actions. I do that.

After my fun-filled weekend, I find myself in a bit of a Hump Day Slump today. Maybe it's just the laundry looming over my head. Hopefully the apple pie I'm having for lunch will lift my spirits (I tried to protest the apple pie bake-off at the office, but in the end it was too much to resist).

I just got a sudden urge to jump in a leaf pile.
That was weird.

  1. I looove teasing my hair, no outfit is complete without a bit of volume. Yours looks so wonderful like this. This really is the perfect fall outfit, the dress is wonderful especially with the green tights. I am definitely going home and getting all my thick knit sweaters out from storage :)

  2. I love your hair like this! I want to try it sometime, but I'm not sure my hair would look as nice as yours does. The sweater looks incredibly comfy and I love the color of your tights too.

  3. I love these stockings. The color is fantastic.
    I've never had enough hair to tease, but I always think of hairspray when I see people with big hair. I think it's pretty fantastic.
    I did try to do a pompadore once, it didn't really work out.

  5. Ohh, this outfit is beautiful! The fluffy cardigan with that floral dress is just perfect. I know what you mean about hair, and I love your teased style. If I had long hair, I would definitely try something similar! I also consider lipstick a necessary accessory because I have a small mouth and don't wear eye makeup.

  9. Oooh, ooh, ooh! I love this outfit. It looks so cozy and femme and like the essence of fall!

    (Haha. And this is so lame, but I couldn't write "the essence of fall" without quoting Zoolander in my head.)

  10. I love those kind of days too. I wish I could find a spot where this kind of weather was a daily occurrence. I'm quite enamored with your outfit and hair. I've tried to get my hair to look like yours but it always falls flat.

  11. Love it - the muted green of your tights is just perfect with the pattern of your dress and oddly your cardi looks a bit like a fluffly fur coat (just in case: I mean in a good way :D)
