Hello one and all! Yay! I am finally using a REAL camera in this post (in the past I was using either my phone or computer). The picture quality is a million times better and I thank my sweet husband Aaron for snapping these shots. :)
I must first apologize for not updating in a couple of weeks! I could come up with many colorful excuses but alas I will blame it on neglect and lack of inspiration during the transitioning seasons. (Seriously, the Bay Area cannot make up its mind on what season it wants to be!) However this week has been a bit different. The first day of Fall was on Monday, and the weather has ever so slowly been changing to a more Autumn tone. I have been aching to don more Fall-oriented clothing because I love layers and tights and knee-socks and beanies and clothes that hug you and make you feel warm and loved. I have also been obsessed with dresses as of late. They are extremely easy to throw on and so versatile and super awesome to layer for cooler weather that honestly, I would wear a dress every day of the week if I could. That being said, my collection is growing so be expecting to see more dresses in future posts.
Moving on, this is currently one of my favorite Fall dresses. My love for floral print will continue to pop up in my posts no matter what season, and the 3/4 length sleeves are a perfect touch in adding a little coziness to the outfit. You can also be expecting to see a ton of knee socks in future posts as they are absolutely perfect to sport on a chilly day. I decided to pair this particular outfit with my ankle booties and cranberry beret (I've had the beret since I was 12!) and immediately fell in love with the entire combination. (Sadly most of my outfit is not thrifted or secondhand in this post, oh well.)
I am super excited to continue dressing up for Fall, my favorite season next to Summer. There is an eerie kind of magic in the transitioning from warm and bright to cool and soft and that in between kind of cozy feeling that Fall exudes is nothing short of beautiful. I am sitting in a candlelit room sipping tea as I type and there is nowhere I would rather be and no season I'd rather be welcoming.
Thank you so much for reading. I have a ton of posts in the works so please be patient! In the meantime, love yourselves, love life, and love each other. ;)
Oh! And love to you all. =^.^=
