Fall is in the Air

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

Over the weekend the temperatures dropped to more Fall-like temperatures for Northeast Ohio and they are expected to stay that way for the first part of this week, at least.  This morning when I went to class the temperature was around 70 degrees.  I like living somewhere where there are seasons and different temperatures but I am most definitely of the mid-range– not too hot and not too cold.  For this reason, Spring is my favorite season followed closely by Fall, then Summer and lastly Winter.  Winter would be great if it only lasted for December and January and then it was over!  Anyway.

For this Fall-like weather I copied the above image from Pinterest with a few tweaks to put my own spin on it.  First, I started with my chambray shirt dress and basic black leggings.  Then, I added my boyfriend cardigan in mustard and my oversized gold watch.  This is where the similarities end.  I very well could have gone with my black riding boots but I chose to go with my cognac brown ones, instead.  I thought that the golden-brown color worked well with the color of the cardigan.  Plus, I tend to associate brown more with Fall than I do black.  I am not always a fan of mixing black and tan but I think in the right situation it can be done.  I can’t see the hair and makeup of the inspiration so I was on my own and I went with my large gold leaf earrings, bronzey brown eye makeup, and an orange-y lip color to complete my Fall look.  And, for the first time I wore my hair slightly wavy/disheveled to class.  If I had a little more time I would have used the flat-iron to accentuate the waves but I didn’t.

I really liked this outfit and how I was able to so closely copy from the Pinterest photo.  I also liked that this shirt dress and legging combination is easy to wear and comfortable at my current status of 26 weeks pregnant.  What do you think?
