Fall Fashion: Day One.

I am SO excited about Fall Fashion Photo Week! I can not WAIT to see what you guys come up with and put together in the next few days. Any of you are welcome to join in at any time-- just snap a photo of your outfit and post it on your blog and let me know you did it so we can all check it out!

On to day one...




I found this dress at the thrift store a few weeks ago and cut off the very bottom ruffle layer because it was just a tad too long. Now I absolutely LOVE it and it has been a go-to item in my closet so far this Fall mostly, I think, because of the gorgeous color. It reminds me of pumpkin spice lattes and autumn leaves.

The jacket is also thrifted. (from the little girl's department. Don't ever forget to look in that section if you go to a thrift store. I have found MOST of my favorite purchases tucked away in the little kid's racks.) I wear this jacket A LOT. It's the perfect weight for Fall... not too heavy, not too light.



And here's a list of those who said they wanted to join in the fun:

Laura @ Every Path. (The originator of this awesome idea!)
Mama Bird @ Three Birds.
Kalle @ Growing C's.
Marla @ Today is Mine. Tomorrow is not my Business. (You must see her dress- it's to DIE for!)
Katy @ Trying to Live for Today, While Looking Towards the Future.
Jilian Dee @ Jilian Dee & Dexter too!
Jen @ Lost in Translation.
Amanda @ Lullabies to Terrorize.
Baby Penny @ Ancora Imparo
Indy & Summer @ a shot in the dark.
Christina @ he.makes.all.things.new

Let me know if YOU want to join in too! :)

Okay, I am kinda joining in, but kinda cheating by making it about Penny's fashions this week. Does that count?

sufferingsummer said...

LOVE that color...it is simply screaming fall!
so I wasn't gonna do it...mostly cause I really used to be into fashion, like a lot...now...well, if I get dressed I'm doing good, but then I saw Marianne's and I thought I would love to have a week of Indy's outfits documented so I'll join with her in sharing her random but awesome fashion sense and I'll try and include my attempts to GET dressed too:)

Emery Jo said...
