Seasons Passing

We had snow on the mountain top this morning. This is not rare to have pre halloween snow up here- but I am going to an oktoberfest today! Time to bundle up:

me whole outfit

Vest and cardigan were both lucky finds at thrift stores, leggings given to me from mom but are from victorias secret, scarf is H&M,boots are Blundstones ($130 value gotten for $54 from sierra trading post!) Jacket was also a lucky goodwill find, but is from forever 21- it is actually a size XL even though I am a small, but I got it because I have been liking the oversized coat look lately, so it still works.

Mountain autumn…

Autumn comes earlier on the mountaintop..  The trees at the end of my road are half orange already. The nights are pretty chilly and the mornings require a sweater and slippers. Leaves are sprinkled around my house and float effortlessly down with the new autumn wind approaching…

  
  
Every year I have mixed feelings about it… It’s my favorite season, but so is summer and I will miss my second home this summer, the lake.

  

I have been getting into the spirit by purchasing autumn boots, pinteresting fall fashion, and staring at Alexa Chung’s perfect effortlessly put together fall outfits, like these:


  

Ahhhhh. For awhile now, I have felt like I have been repeating my same summer dresses and skirts at work and fall fashion has always been the best to me. I am excited for that among other things like halloween, halloweentown and hocus pocus, foliage, apple picking/ apple pie baking, halloween costumes… Tea…list goes on….
