A Vintage Fall

Living in Central/South Texas for 24 1/2 years means I don’t really get to live in an area with seasons. Our seasons are something like hot, hotter than hell, so hot you wish you were dead, and kinda hot. So, for you peeps with actual seasons, I envy you.

That being said, the months of September-December are my fave, and this coincides with fall. I don’t know what it is about fall that I love so much. It could be the fantabulous scents at Bath & Body Works, the yummy Starbucks drinks that come out, or the cozy sweaters that hide my fat rolls make me feel skinny.

I love it all.

I notice each fall I seem to have a theme or mood of sorts. Last year it was much about jewel-tones and glam. This year, I seem to be gravitating towards a vintage, romantic, renaissance like mood. Bows, velvet, light with dark, black, gray, ivory, peach, sparkles, etc. Weird.

Here are some of the items I have been coveting for my vintage fall mood:

shoes

  1. I love those clothes and accessories! So lovely.

    I'm actually finding myself wanting to be really casual and kind of sporty this fall. I'm shunning my closet of skirts and dresses in favor of khakis and jeans just dressy enough to wear to work. I'm dying for more pairs of cute sneakers (these specifically - http://zapp.me/z7165607).

  2. I'm loving it all but especially those boots, the tiffany key necklace(which i've been lusting after for awhile), and the headband from f21.

  3. I just want summer back! Seasons don't change much here in CA either, but the fog has been rolling in earlier and earlier.

    I do love that ring though.
