Fall is in the air!

There's so much I love about fall. The changing colours of the leaves, the swealtering heat cooling down, the leaves crunching beneath my ankle boots. Fashion-wise, I'm very much looking forward to fall because I can finally layer my clothes! Vests, sweaters, blazers, tights - fall is the time to do it!

The summer heat leaves very little room for layering, but this outfit was my attempt to do so, without facing the scary wrath of the sun! (Wow, I'm pretty much obsessed with my sun - been in the last two posts! Maybe it's a sign.. of something..)





(Hat - Value Village $3, Vest - Peru $17, Zebra Tank - F21 $12, Denim Skirt - Homemade, Purse - Flea Market $1)

First time wearing this hat I purchased a few months ago! How could I have forgotten about it? It's texture is awesome. Reminds me of a pink bunny rabbit. Easter bunny, perhaps?


Since layering clothes has proven to be a bit of a challenge in great heat, I've discovered a newfound adoration for layering jewelry!


Here's the homemade jean skirt that I made a week or so ago! Hope you like it. It pretty much changed completely from the original design. I'm such a fool and, once again, bought a sparse amount of fabric. Fortunately, I found some old denim and since the wash was slightly different, I reversed it. That's what the light denim is, just, you know, in case you were curious... Yeah, okay..


Heads up for the blog -- school starts tomorrow. Sadly, this means that I will return to being uniform clad and homework indosed. I'm definitely going to find time for this blog (I love blogging!), but posts are likely to be more sparse! Also, my internet has been down, so I will probably have to visit your blogs within the next week, once it doesn't keep shutting down every 20 minutes!! (I'm slightly agitated. Though content and mildly - as in very - proud that I sped wrote, uploaded pictures, and published this post in the given amount of time I have! I call it skill...)

Thanks so much for stopping by and all your comments! I seriously appreciate them! How's your first days of school been? Any funny stories? (Wouldn't mind reading them during class!)

My first day of school was a success in some ways. I hate my uniform though. I wish I went to a school like gossip girl where you can dress up your uniform.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that skirt!

well my school started WAYYYY back in june, so yeah.... everyone was all caught up in the swine flu thing, we had this weird survey thing where they would ask us "have you been in contact with anyone who arrived from a abroad in the past 10 days" and random shiz like that. oh and everyday for like a month, we would have to have our temperature checked before school. not cool man, not cool.
LOVE YOUR VEST!
