Double Trouble!

While I undoubtedly love the crisp leaves of fall, I find that I'm still holding onto the brightness and the summeryness (?) that summer brings. I'm pretty sure that my bright colours will still make its way into my fall wardrobe...

I keep on seeing this "two-tone" tight trend on blogs. But I haven't actually grabbed myself a pair seeing that the only one I could find was at a very reasonable (ahem) price of $50. Okay. Yeah. So I cheated. Layered tights... Except I didn't layer one side. Ah, I'm so sneaky.. (Um, this actually derived from the fact that I was too lazy to put it on the other side after I decided it looked remotely cool. But, shh...)

I also decided to layer cardigans. Because I'm cool like that...

(Blue Cardigan - Value Village $7, Daisy Cardigan - Winners/ Mum's, Belt - Pacific Mall $10, Skirt - Homemade, Tights - both from H&M, Shoes - Keds)

Even though I am happily adapting my summery wardrobe into fall, I really wouldn't mind grabbing a few new things. I'm thinking that I'm going to need an alternative to skirts/ shorts + tights (my current wardrobe), and opt. for something a little bit more warm! Hmm, jeans? Leggings? Man pants? I'll have to see what I can pick up via Value Village (aka my clothing bible.)

And thanks so much for everyone who has come by and commented! I get so excited when I see that the little comment number at the bottom of my post has increased! Um, come to think of it, I'm kind of a huge dork about it but, um, anyways... More importantly, I will return comments this weekend! Tata for now!

What's on your fall shopping list?

Loving the belt and daisy print cardigan. I'm dying for some funky blazers- all of the ones in the stores in my area are ridiculously overpriced. Anyway, cute outfit as usual! (:

Girl in the loft said...

Um I LOVE that blue cardigan and cannot believe it was only 7 bucks!!!!!!!! totally love the colorful post!

Kaye A said...

This outfit and your style are soooo adorable! I love how you "cheated" with the two-tone tights, very creative. I do the same thing with this puffy dress. When I fold the top part of it down and tuck it under a waist belt, it transforms into the cutest little skirt. Hahaa. I think we've mastered how to beat the system lOl ;-D
