Hello, Beautiful Day

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 
When it's 80 degrees in October, go outside!

Top, Belt, Necklace: The Limited
Crops: Loft
Shoes: Dana Buchman c/o Kohl's
I can't believe how much better outfit photos look when they're taken outside! The color is so much more vivid and accurate - for lack of better words - to what the clothes actually look like! [Light is such an interesting concept -- as is perception in general -- but we can save that discussion for another day.]

 On another note, I like to make goals. Most of the time, I can't keep them. But every now and then, I can. My goal recently has been to wear the clothes that have long been neglected. I've had this shirt since spring of 2011, but haven't worn it since the first day of school last year (September 2011). I decided today was a perfect day to wear it.

Have you heard the word? The word is 'fallify'. {I first encountered it on Bri's blog (Work Clothes, I Suppose) - who credits Laura from Twelve by Six.} One easy way to make a summer style more appropriate for fall is by adding boots; I did this yesterday. I was considering doing it today, too, but when it's 80 degrees in October, the thought of boots makes me sweat. So I wonder: is it really necessary to fallify? Can't we just pull our spring and summer clothes back out and celebrate the occasion? 

Have you packed away your bright and bold colored clothing? If you put away your warm weather clothing, do you keep it packed up until spring? And do you love abnormally warm weather in October as much as I do?

  18. Newest follower here! I found you through the Wednesday blog hop! Cute blog, I love those pants!

  19. We've had a few really warm days here too, and I totally agree - no need to add fall accessories if the weather is summery and beautiful, I say just go for it! Fallify is really just an easy way to keep wearing summer clothes when it gets too cold for skirts, tanks, etc.! And like you said, boots are one perfect way to do that :) Really cute outfit too, I love the color of those crops!

  20. Thats such a great top i cant believe that you haven't worn it more! I still haven't packed all my bright clothing! i will prob keep using a couple more things for fall but most if it i should be packing soon! considering we already got snow here!

    have a fabulous day
