Feeling Fall

 

 

Outfit Details: Dress: thrifted; Jacket: via Ross; Earrings: from Hawaii; Shoes: Report, via Macy’s; Knee Highs: via Modsock.

Even though it’s summer, the weather here screams fall. So after being unable to remember what pair of jeans I wore in my last blog post, I opened my tights drawer and found these knee-highs looking back at me. The coat got thrown over the whole thing, simply because rain could fall at any second here.

So, big news, I’m actually going back to school. I registered for classes last week, and I meet with my advisor tomorrow. Technically, I was supposed to wait to register, but I couldn’t–I like to plan ahead for everything. I’m doing a program for a medical assisting certificate, which should take me about a year. I’m actually really excited about the whole thing, even though it means more school. Although honestly, I’ve missed learning and classes over the past year.

 These earrings are one of the larger pairs I own–I walked into a small store in Hawaii (I think on Kawaii) and purchased several pairs including these. The sparkly flecks in them seemed to go well with the top of the dress, and evoked a little “Starry Nights” feeling for me!

Miu Miu’s, Leather & Lace

Outfit Details: Dress: Modcloth; Jacket (old): Gap; Socks: Tabbisock, via Modsock; Shoes: Miu Miu, via Ebay.

I purchased this dress off Modcloth over a year ago on sale. I was so excited to get it, only to find it ran super small. I couldn’t fit into it. There was just no way it was going to work for me. I couldn’t give up on it though, so it hung in my closet for about a year until a couple weeks ago when I decided to try it on.

Lo and Behold: It fit.

It’s a little sweet, so I added the old leather jacket I got in 7th grade and the Miu Miu’s I snagged off Ebay a little while back. The knee high socks were because it was a little chilly.

I love these shoes. That is all.

Marooned

Outfit Details: Dress: Darling UK, via Saisons Boutique; Socks: Tabbi Socks, via ModSock Boutique; Shoes: Stolen from Mom.

While I was in Bellingham, I finally went to the store a friend of mine raved about. It was store full of socks. Just socks. They had knee highs, over the knees, ankle socks… You could get socks with unicorns, gnomes, fish, cats, words (I was partial to the “bookworm” socks), or just stripes.

I ended up finding these maroon/wine over-the-knee socks there. I’ve always had the hardest time finding over-the-knee socks in stores, so to find a gigantic selection was kind of overwhelming. I only ended up buying this pair for now, though I plan to make a trip back to the store.

 This lace dress is a major wardrobe staple of mine. I’m pretty sure it goes with everything I own. I’ve actually written down over 20 outfits involving this dress. Now, I’ve just got to start putting them into play.
