the weather lately has been so sporadic. anywhere from regular seasonal temperatures, requiring a sweater and tights, to super hot summer weather, and down to frost warnings at night. i've been leaving in the morning with a fall coat, only to come home and change into shorts. it makes planning outfits rather challenging.
today it stayed fairly cool, which i love. brisk, autumn days are my favourite, with the excitement of added accessories and lots of layers. the dress i ordered from modcloth arrived last week, and i've been looking forward to wearing it. i kept trying to hold off until it was a bit more autumny, with more leaves changing colours... but i just couldn't wait. the arrival of the dress and my wool hat within days of each other was just perfect.
it was tempting to wear my red riding hood tights with this outfit, but not very work appropriate. i think i push my limits as it is, and tights with characters on them may be just too much. some things are fun to save only for play, right?
