Janelle In Real Life: a windy day.

8.20.2013

a windy day.

Hey there.


It was windy.


Where she got it: striped top: gap // chambray: j crew factory // pants: gap outlet // shoes: famous footwear // necklace: urban peach boutique
I love/hate that it's almost fall.

Love it because: 
I get to wear scarves
I get to wear more layer-y things
I love the colors outside
I get to wear boots
cooler weather means hot cocoa and apple cider

Hate it because:
I spent all this time waiting for summer to get here and now it's ending
It's that much closer to freezing cold winter

Anyway, this is my not-quite-summer and not-quite-fall outfit! I loooove this chambray shirt and I'm excited to get to wear it more! It's a heavier fabric so I've been avoiding it during the heat but as it gets colder, you'll be seeing it more and more.

Also, don't you love this necklace? It's such a fun statement piece and adds a fun splash of color!

Have a happy day, dear friends.

  2. I feel the same way about fall coming—although I love it a little more than hate it. I feel like there were so many things I wanted to do this summer, but didn't get to, yet I love everything about fall—the weather, cute layering pieces, apple picking.. :) Your outfit is adorable and def makes me psyched for fall!

    xo honestly, b.

    1. I know, I realized that I don't actually have hateful feelings toward fall, just toward the bitter, cold winter!
