Weekly Wardrobe: A Sunny Fall Day

 Glasses: BonLook; Scarf: No idea!/Similar; Cardigan: H&M; Shirt: Anthropologie/Similar; Belt: Anthropologie/Similar; Skirt: ModCloth; Tights: Nordstrom; Shoes: ModCloth

 Well, in stark contrast to last weekend, this weekend was GORGEOUS! It was sunny and almost 70° both Saturday and Sunday. Guys, that is not normal Seattle fall weather. We're lucky to have sun for part of a day in the fall, let alone two days in a row!

On top of the good weather, this weekend was FUN. Friday night I went to game night at my friend, Andrea's house which was super fun. On Saturday, I got to do some pumpkin carving with my dad in the morning. Guys, my dad is ridiculously good at pumpkin carving, but you'll hear more about all of that later this week! Saturday evening I witnessed one of the most gorgeous sunsets I've ever seen, and then headed out to my friend Val's karaoke birthday party. It was a total blast and kept me up way later than my usual old-lady-at-26 bed time.

To keep the good times rolling, on Sunday morning I went to an author talk at The Book Larder, where I got to try some ridiculously delicious gluten-free cream puffs, and then spent the afternoon with Katie at Discovery Park. This Sunday was a far cry from last Sunday's rain/wind-out so Katie helped me take a few sets of outfit photos. I figure most days going forward will be rainy ones, so I might as well get it while the gettin's good!

Amongst all the fun I've fallen behind on a few things (like responding to comments! Sorry, guys! I'm on it!), but I figure it was worth it for such a wonderful weekend!

What did you guys get up to over the weekend?

Til next time!

  3. You always wear the cutest belts! And, I love those tights. Sounds like we traded weather this weekend, though. My boyfriend and I could barely do anything because of the on-again-off-again rain here. We managed to go to a local festival and leave just in time for it to start pouring again! I hope you get a few more nice days before winter comes!

    1. Thanks, cousin! They'll be up tomorrow morning, so be sure to check back. Renaissance man is right! I was recently telling someone about how he made a mandolin, which he learned to do by reading a book. Sheesh!

    1. Thank you so much! I've been living in those shoes this fall. A lazy weekend sounds SO amazing right now. I've got a couple of busy weeks coming up, but I'm hoping to get some serious lazy time in soon. I could use it!

  8. Those tights are so cute!! Glad to read that you had a wonderful weekend. Pumpkin carving, I never did that, but I think it's so much fun! And oh, a karaoke party! That must be awesome! You probably can't believe it, but I never sang karaoke before and really want to.
    Skirts like the one you're wearing here, suit you so well! I love the dark green colour!
    I had a fun weekend with my cousins in the Ardennes, we went rail biking :)

    1. Thank you, Sofie! You are the sweetest. Both pumpkin carving and karaoke are a blast! I hope you get to try both soon. You'll love it! Your weekend sounds lovely, as well. Glad you enjoyed it!

  9. Oh, wasn't the weekend weather awesome? Although part of me went "It's fall, cool down!"But the sunshine was beautiful! And your weekend sounds like it was amazing! We... did nothing. I ate too much sugar and regretted it like a weirdo. Haha! Oh, and I (enlisted the husband) made a chalkboard, so that was fun.
    I am in love with your outfit. I have polkadot tights JUST like that, except mine have about fifty runs in them. I really should toss them, but I can't bear it! They're too pretty.

    1. It was so good!!! I love when it's in the 60s or so in the fall because it's still cool enough for a cozy sweater, but you're not doing any shivering at the bus stop. Uh, your weekend sounds amazing, too! I could totally use a lazy weekend right now. Thanks for all of your sweet compliments, lady!
