The First Rain

Today was the first rain of fall! So I did none other than whip out my trusty little bubble umbrella. The season change from summer to fall is my favorite, because I love the variation of warm and chilly nights.

It’s easy during the colder months to become one big bundled ball of coziness. I’ve been known to be walking around with long johns (under my jeans of course silly!), wool socks and the occasional self-cut fingerless gloves (for typing at work…totally hobo status). I am realizing that my bundled ways need a balance. For instance today instead of wearing of regular skinnies I chose a cropped pair to offset all the bundling on top. For the upcoming months ahead I am thinking cropped jackets, sheer tights, pumps and bright colored pea coats.

I almost forgot! Do you see that fancy mint ring on my finger? It comes from a local online shop called Compliment. Β Upon purchasing one of these hand-crafted pieces, a portion goes to a fund, which supports deserving students by helping them attain their college dreams. When I opened the box it came with a sweet stampedΒ compliment, making the experience come full circle with the brands name. Also, a big thanks goes to The Lipstick Giraffe for hosting such a generous giveaway!

What are you most excited about wearing for the chillier weather?

    Oh your hair and umbrella! You are so adorable.
    I really want a similar top, but since I’ve sworn off retail shopping (I’m only shopping thrift store from now till February) I doubt it will happen. Perhaps a little DIY….
    I adore your nose ring! Just a little touch of badass.
