Don't Get Mad, Get Plaid

The bipolar weather is starting to set in. Right now we have autumn temperatures in the morning & then by the afternoon we're back to summer. Not quite the weather I was hoping for October, but for now I'll take what I can get. In the meantime, I'll continue to wear plaid and sport my favorite booties - but with bare legs because we haven't quite reached tights territory yet. I'm taking things slow, y'all.

Also, is it just me or does that 3rd photo look like someone just told me I can't have a second helping of dessert? Because that really is the face I make when someone tells me that. I was trying to look ~deep in thought~ but I guess it didn't work out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Shop My Closet

So I decided to open up my own little online shop of the clothes that don't quite fit into my wardrobe anymore! Well, the shop has been open for a couple months now, but I wanted to have some ample inventory before introducing it on the blog. Everything in the shop is in "like new" condition since it was only worn once or twice, and nothing is over $20 (even with shipping included!). And just so ya know, I can only ship to people in the US. Take a look if you're interested! Happy shopping! :)

Faking It

So Austin has been in this new season for almost a full month now, and there's still no sign that cooler weather is here to stay. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Halloween miracle though! I've been seeing a few of my fellow Texan bloggers already dawning coats & thick scarves in their outfit posts, and I'm just like, What?! How is that possible if we share a climate? Some things are better left as mysteries, I suppose.

This outfit is my way of dressing for autumn when it's still pretty warm outside yet cool enough to layer a bit. I like to keep the layers minimal (preferably sleeveless) while sticking to more earthy tones, and bam - instant fake fall. ;) Now if only it were possible for the trees here to fake some fall foliage...

This wine-purplish hue is one of my faaavorite colors for fall, and yet I don't have any items of the shade other than the hat I wore in my last post. Not sure why I didn't hop on this trend sooner; probably because I'm always hoarding plaid prints whenever this season rolls around! But I've been seeing bloggers sporting this color a lot lately, and I just love it. I also love that stores insist on calling it "wine" as opposed to a deep burgundy or maroon, it makes me feel fancy. *insert sassy girl emoji here* What colors are you excited to wear this season?

Last weekend, a couple friends and I made the venture out west of Austin to a place called Sweet Berry Farm in search of a raved-about pumpkin patch. None of us had gone before, so we weren't sure what to expect! All we knew was that we were determined to do some fall festivities before it was too late. The farm was awesome! Granted, we were probably the oldest people there who weren't with children, haha! We're still kids at heart though, so it's okay.

There was so much to do; pumpkin painting, scarecrow stuffing, horse riding, etc. We opted for flower picking in a field of zinnias, going on a scavenger hunt in a corn maze (took us 1.5 hours & we didn't even finish lol), and a hay ride while eating some pumpkin ice cream. We ended the day taking photos in the pumpkin patch & my friends even picked out a few to take home. All in all, it was a great day! What festivities do you have planned for this season?
