Fallerized

Brown, cowl neck sweater vest, Worthington. Orange tee, Merona. Curtain skirt, George. Brown boots, Nine West. Watch, Mudd. Orange resin earrings, World Market.

I’ve always thought of this skirt as a summer item, but its heavy weight makes it suitable for fall as well. Playing up the orange tones and introducing chocolate brown makes the summery pattern seem more autumnal.

Speaking of fall, my November issue of Lucky arrived this week. I think it may be my favorite issue ever. Not only is there a page on different ways to wear menswear vests, but there is also a whole “month of outfits” created from one wardrobe. I have a feeling I’ll be cutting that section out to keep before retiring the issue to the gym next month.

That looks good with the brown. I would have never thought to add the brown to that skirt.

I love that skirt. I will definitely be on the lookout for that edition of the Lucky mag too!

Ooops..forgot to mention that layering that sweater with a Tee is a great idea. I've always like sleeveless sweaters but thought "I can't wear that...I'll freeze!" but with a layer underneath I could definitely get away with it!

nice colors on you :-)
speaking of "fallerizing" items...I've recently started wearing my mod-ish mini shift dresses to work with a nice long-sleeved T-shirt layered underneath, along with opaque dark tights. works and keeps me warm and cute!

Orange and brown are my favorite color combos! You're skirt is so cute I thought I'd give Wal-mart another try (George is a Wal-mart brand name right?). I actually found a nice cream colored shirt, something I've been looking for. Yay for second chances!

Kasmira, Hi...you mentioned that your blog was mentioned in the local paper...do you have a link? I would love to read it.

I tried to do a google search but WOW! all I could find was a cnn.com article on you about your garden.

You are a woman of many many talents!

That skirt really does work for Fall. I'm so excited to get the latest Lucky but it's not over here yet. There's been a postal strike this week so it's probably more delayed than usual too.

Love the coral and brown tops together - they look gorgeous with your colouring. The skirt works.

Meco - Yes, George is one of the Walmart brands. I've liked all of my George items so far. Much better than Metro 7.

Mary - the article was in Cin Weekly last March, but it is no longer available online!

It's great to see 'spring' colors in fall. I hate shopping in fall because all the stores are filled with the same boring neutrals.

(Well, maybe I don't 'hate' shopping, but it's definitely not my favorite time of year shopping-wise.)

You look great in boots. You've really got the legs for them. They show off your legs really well. Lovely, slender legs.
