Cords. Get it? Like cords of wood, but also like the pants-ah you get it. Did I configure a blog post backdrop around this pun or was it a serendipitous accident, the world may never know. Thankfully they don’t need to, they just need to see these pants. Hot. Pink. Corduroy. I knew the second I saw these pants they were showstoppers, but you know what pairs best with one showstopper? Another one, which is why I paired them with my white boots, which have already cemented their place not only on this blog but also in my heart as a new favorite. (PS I got a new mascara and it is going to need its own post soon.)
People don’t think electric blue is a fall color. I know because I googled it. Apparently “fall colors” are limited to red, orange and yellow (I guess that’s why target currently looks like someone set a maple tree on fire). Here’s the thing they seem to be missing though: I’m not trying to blend in with the landscape. It’s fashion not camo. So, continuing my lifelong trend of being contrary just for the sake of it, you know I’m wearing electric blue. A layering turtleneck + a corduroy jumper dress + platforms = the perfect blue autumn outfit.
What I’m listening to: Somebody’s Baby by Jackson Browne
The leaves are finally turning down here, turning nature into a splendor of color that the rest of the country experienced 4 months ago. There is no better feeling than getting up in the morning and going to enjoy the outdoors. After all, “The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” – John Muir.
First off, let me just say that it was a great weekend for football. Georgia beat Auburn, and WKU beat Army. It was also a great weekend for weather, with the Alabama sunshine deciding to take a break for a little while. (Yes, that means winter clothes in 70 degree weather, don’t judge me.) A quick rundown of my outfit: Sweater is from Victoria’s Secret, skirt is from Adrianna Papell, jacket is Pim + Larkin, heels are (surprise!) Lands’ End, and the adorable monogrammed scarf is Marley Lilly.
