Outfit // That Fall Feeling

black-hat-1
Hello, hello! I am so happy to be back to doing outfit posts! When I first started blogging, I didn't think they would be something that I would regularly do, but I have really come to enjoy sharing bits of my style. It's pretty fun, you know? I think Dai maybe even secretly enjoys taking my photo since this past weekend I was able to convince him to do TWO outfit shoots and he didn't even put up a fight ;)

I love the change of seasons and am always ready for the next one to come. This year (like most years, really), summer seemed to stick around way longer than it was supposed to here in California. Starting on Halloween, though, it finally felt like fall! I awoke to a rainy, grey day, which put a huge smile on my face and made me snuggle down a little deeper in bed. I didn't have school and was lucky enough to have work off at the last-minute, so it was really the perfect Friday. I spent the day in cozy clothes, painting for my design class project, and venturing out for a latte and blogging time.

I do enjoy warm weather, but there's just something exciting about a little chill that allows you to pull on extra layers and cute booties. You feel me? Until now, I have seriously been wearing sandals nonstop since April! It feels really great to pull some of my colder weather favorites out of my closet and put together new outfits.black-hat-5 black-hat-6 black-hat-7 black-hat-8 black-hat-9
I recently snagged this green jacket off of the sale rack at Lucky Brand and am in love with it. It is the perfect weight and is fitted in all the places I like it to be. I hate to admit this, but I am fairly certain I have an addiction to green military style jackets. This is the 5th one in my closet! They are all just a liiiiiitle different, and for that reason I simply must have them all ;)

I have also been wanting plum colored pants for a while and was pretty happy when I found these ones at Uniqlo! To me, plum is really one of the very best fall colors. Plus it goes really well with all those green jackets in my closet :) And it is finally boot season! Need I say more?black-hat-11 black-hat-12 black-hat-13
The rest of the weekend was filled with other fall-like, cold weather things like making homemade chili, meeting with friends for a coffee double-date, sleeping in (woohoo for that extra hour!), and baking sugar cookies. I even got to break out my Uggs!

I can already tell that November is going to be grand.

This sounds just like Uncle Jacob: I do enjoy warm weather, but there's just something exciting about a little chill that allows you to pull on extra layers and cute booties.

as always, you look stunning.
I was so delighted to see your smile pop up in my feed.

Oh my! You look so gorgeous! I love the closeups its a hard thing to pull off such closeups but you look flawless. Also your outfit is so totally fall. I have to agree with you, it is so tough getting my boyfriend to take my outfit photos. Some days he's into it. Some days he's just not. Lucky for me lately he's been coming around I think since I explained to him what it means to me when he cooperates. He even agreed to let me show him other fashion bloggers so he knows how to stylize the photos ;) Yay for cooperative boyfriends

Jess said...

Thanks so much, Chelsea! It is the perfect fall hat!

Jess said...

HAHA I can totally see it...

Jess said...

Thanks Alicia! I definitely feel fall-like in it!

Jess said...

You are the sweetest. I miss you!
Yeah, I haven't been so consistent on the blogging train lately, but I'm doing my best to get back to it! I find that I am happier when I do :)

Awww, thanks Justine! Yeah, I have found explaining it to my boyfriend helps a bit too. It really does mean a lot to me that he takes the photos and I appreciate it so much! That's so great that your guy is willing to do a bit of studying up on fashion photography. I think I need to do a bit of the same ;)

Jess said...

Haha I'm the one who suggested it. Of course! But it is great. Yeah I just explained that I love showcasing my outfits and helps my confidence so what's better then that!

Jess said...

So gorgeous!
I love your style!

Thanks Britt! I am glad you enjoy my style, especially since outfit posts weren't something I was always confident in or comfortable with doing :)
