We're Off

This past weekend two awesome things happened at just about the same time. Fall showed up, and so did some new fall clothes I ordered. I was pretty excited. I know I'm not the first blogger to say this, but I really love the fall. For me it is the real new year- school starts back; the air is crisp; it's acceptable to drink hot drinks and make hot soups and stews; the clothes are my favorite colors- warm browns and golds and jewel tones. Fall is also the busiest time of the year for me. We traveled to attend Curtis's brother's wedding, and I got to wear a new dress.



In the small town where the wedding was being held, we ran across this Halloween display outside of a beauty salon. Too cute, right? I love The Wizard of Oz (I was actually a beautician in a production of it two years ago), so I had to pose with the guys! The dress is a silk number from Old Navy. It's that beautiful oxblood, burgundy, chianti color that's so popular right now. Luckily it's a color I already like. The wedding was outside so I did layer with some cable knit tights, and boy was I glad!

Dress- Old Navy
Shoes and Scarf- New York and Co

Granted this week we are supposed to have highs in the 80s AGAIN, but for now I am enjoying the brisk weather and the cozy clothes.

Fall is my favorite time of year! I seriously love that outfit and that dress. I may have to go snatch it up.

I love the way you dress! You make everything you wear look so stylish! Do you shop Old Navy online? Burgundy is my favorite color! The Wizard of Oz display is so cute. Oh btw, where do you buy your tights? Do you like the fit? I have THE worst time finding good fitting tights.

Love that deep red color on you! This outfit is perfect for a casual, autumn outdoor wedding! (Though from the pictures you tweeted it looks like you may have been over dressed...)

So pretty :) These fall colors are perfect on you, and I am so jealous that you were able to wear some tights!! That Wizard of Oz display is beyond adorable, and I love that you snapped some photos next to it.

This dress looks amazing on you, I love all the autumn associated shades as well, it's definitely my favourite time of year visually. I love the grey tights as well, I really want to try and branch out from wearing black every day this winter xo

Sounds like we are having the same sort of weather. Cold now, heating up again soon! Anyway, loving the color and cut of this dress! The scarf gives it a Madison Ave. edge. Love it!!

I love fall too! Like you mention, the fall hues are just great and did I mention I love wearing scarves? It's quite brisk here and while I haven't yet worn tights, I'm already getting my warmer clothes out of storage. :)

I just found you and I'm already in love with your style and your blog and your attitude about having curves. And I need that dress, ASAP.
