My Outfit Monday: Autumn Glow
For a long time, fall was my least favorite season. Fall meant having to go back to school, sitting through endless hours of boring football games (that's right, I said it) and packing away the beach bikini for another day, far, far away.
Yet, I've always loved fall colors. Browns, golds, forest greens, deep reds -- there's nothing cozier. And I've since changed my tune. As I get further away from my high school and college days, I've grown to love autumn and everything it represents. Cooler weather, Halloween shenanigans, Thanksgiving with family, pumpkin lattes ... I even like football, I think.
So it is in this spirit that I present to you my outfit on this beautiful Monday, which so happens to be a perfect 78 degrees in sunny downtown St. Petersburg. The dress is from Banana Republic, and notice in my hand the complementing dark blue cardigan from H&M.
The purse has a funny story. I got it from TJMaxx and I gave it to my mother for her birthday last year. A few months ago, she was purging her closet and asked if I wanted it. She forgot I gave it to her as a gift. A month after that, she saw it on my shoulder and remarked how pretty it was, and perhaps she wanted it back.
Obviously, I won that war, and it's my favorite purse at the moment. The color somehow goes with everything and I hope it gets me through the rest of the season.
I will wrap it up for Christmas and give it to my mother.
