As you know…it’s October and fall is truly starting to show it’s orange and red colors here in the Pacific Northwest. And that means only one thing in October…PUMPKIN PATCH TIME! I headed out to a lovely pumpkin patch in the greater-Seattle area and ended up finding the perfect little pumpkin to hang out near my doorstep until I decide to gut the thing for all it’s seeds…and bake them into deliciousness.
Oh, what’s that? You want to know what I’m wearing? Sure, sure. I’ll tell you. My little coat is from GAP (it’s old, but I love this one), striped shirt is from H&M (similar here), scarf is from Forever21 (old, similar here), boots I’ve had forever (but these and these are amazing).
And if you can’t tell, I’m really into statement-socks sticking out of booties for this season. In fact I bought the most adorable pair of hen-socks from J.Crew this past weekend that I plan to flaunt near my ankles very soon!
Though it is inching towards summer outside…I live in Seattle, and that means that no matter what, it will rain at least once a month. These pictures were taken late last week, right before our gorgeous, sunny (I know…shocking!) 3-day weekend. I’m in Pioneer Square in these photos, a very old and historical neighborhood in downtown Seattle (as well as the home of the homeless, though harmless!).
Enough about Seattle (I swear their tourism board isn’t paying me…though maybe they should be) and let’s talk clothes. The fur jacket (or my bear fur as I like to call it) is from Nordstrom (old, but this one is cute too), the snakeskin dress is from H&M (old) and the sweater is from Old Navy (old, similar here). Jewelry is vintage, my adorable little sparkly purse was a gift (from J.Crew) and my “moon booties” are Nine West (but I like these and these). And my nails (see last picture) are Sally Hanson Salon Effects (c/o Reward Style, get them at Target).
Hope everyone spent their 3-day weekend wisely – not working, definitely laughing & obviously drinking in good company
A quick personal moment before we chat fashion: I’ve realized something about men these past few months. Many of you may not know, I’m single and have been dating around for a few months – and it’s interesting to see how easy it is to actually figure out the basics on what guys are looking for. I’ve come up with a few things, a list if you will, of things most men want in a woman. Now, I’m not saying this list is complete or accurate – or that I possess these qualities (haha, no seriously, no) – but I’d love to hear your thoughts on if you agree.
Most men want [in a woman/relationship]:
So last week was “Snowmageden” here in Seattle, and when I saw “sunny” in the weather forecast this morning…I almost JUMPED out of bed. I knew I had to do something cheery & bright…and even curled the CRAP out of my hair with my favorite hair tool, the curling stick (totally kicks the curling iron’s outdated ass). I feel like a mix between Shirley Temple and Natasha today – so I’ve been on my best behavior.
Now, let’s talk clothes. The blazer is thrifted, top is from Nordstrom Rack, belt is Michael Kors, skirt is from H&M (old), tights from Target, booties from H&M (recent) and snakeskin bag from H&M (old).
Well I hope I’ve polka-dotted your day with pleats of joy & curls of smiles, laides & gents!
