Fall Fashion Week - Tuesday!

This morning the weather was wonderful, so after Ezra went off to school me and the two littles tumbled out into the backyard and got lost for hours in our own ways.



I read and sipped coffee while Myer played in the dirt and buried cars. Truman napped like a champ and the crisp breeze called for a blanket to cocoon myself up in.

Why do I start my mornings in any other way? And why do I constantly forget that beauty can be found ANYWHERE... even in a tiny backyard in the middle of oklahoma?

I'm learning to see with new eyes.

Anywho, this is what I wore the rest of the day:

















Hat- thrifted
Top- vintage nordstroms thrifted
Necklace- gift from friend
Shorts- thrifted
Belt- thrifted
Backpack- thrifted
Knee-highs- TJ Maxx
Shoes- Report from Ross


This week so far has been so so great, thanks to you all.

Here's a challenge for you... now that we're in the groove of complimenting one another and brightening each other's days... try applying it to the people around you too! Step out and compliment someone (or multiple people!) that you come in contact with during your day today, and then tell us about your experience in your next outfit post!



Truman is excited about this challenge, can you tell? haha.

It can be so easy to forget to pay attention to everyday beauty. I often find myself holding out for the big moments. How much greater would life be if we didn't wait?!

By the way, love that top. What an incredible thrifting find!

Kate said...

I love your top, great find! And it looks great with those shorts and belt!

Wow! This is my favorite from you so far this week!! I love, love, love, that cute little backpack! And the lace with the shorts, and high stockings! I love it all! Super cute!

Is Truman sitting on his own?! He is adorable!

Erin said...

Did I tell you that I'm reading One Thousand Gifts? And that it's changing my world??? And I too am learning to see with new eyes. I'm super excited about that book. And I LOVE that top. I want it. It's perfect with shorts. You look absolutely adorable. As usual!

Love love love this outfit! And I have to find that hat - so glam x-) I wish you more beauty-ful moments today.

katie said...

glad to see someone [else] doing knee-high with shorts...something i've been meaning to, but not quite brave enough to try.

also, truman is a complete doll. i don't know that i've ever seen such a bright-eyed little kiddo. =)

deanna@delirious-rhapsody said...

i love high socks worn with shorts. :) apparently you look adorable in every single thing you wear! :)

Charlotte said...

Oh man! This is my favorite outfit of yours, so far. I love all the little details about it: lacy top, long necklace, shorts with knee highs, how the straps of your backpack are a little reminiscent of suspenders... it all works together so well.

Thanks for the challenge - I'm going to try to keep it in mind throughout the day.

Allie said...

That top...insanely cute!
I've put the challenge in my brain, going to work on it today!

Caitlin said...

i love everything about this outfit. absolute perfection! i need to find a backpack like that!

Olivia said...

Please forgive me for cheating today. I posted what I wish I was wearing! I promise I'll post what I'm really wearing either later today or tomorrow. Well, not what I'm wearing right this second since it's an old pair of leggings and a work out shirt, but something cute that's hanging in the closet. Thanks for doing this again! I definitely need the fall inspiration for getting dressed!
Oh, and you look amazingly wonderful, btw. I love how real AND cute you look every day!

Danielle said...

This outfit is super cute. I love the top the most. It's so girly!!

I love that you were able to go out into nature and take in all of the beauty. It truly is a great way to start any day.

April said...

Lovely lace top!! Your challenge is great...people sometimes forget it's the simple things that make you smile!

Molly said...

I'm in love with this look! It's my favorite of the week, hands down. All the details are perfect. The lace top, the ultra high socks, the fabulous hat. You, my dear, are the ultimate.

Emery Jo, your shirt/suspenders/shorts and backpack have stolen my heart. I don't know how I can live without (something like) them! So great. My favorite of the day. :)

Jeanine Byers Hoag said...

Such a cute outfit! I'm glad you had some good outdoor time.

I find the same thing, that it is all too easy to forget about the joy that's waiting right outside the door.

Love your ensembles today and previous! Great hat!! And being outdoors is just magical for everyone ... must be the fresh air.

Lamest comment ever... I think the linky's not working? I have tried submitting twice, and it says I still have 1 hr and 43 minutes. Weird?

Anyway... here's the link: http://www.tankertracks.com/2011/09/fall-fashion-tuesday.html

And you are always adorable! Seriously... Love the long sleeve/shorts combo.

Kalle said...

What a great challenge. I love this idea. And I love your outfit today. I'm a big fan of dressing up shorts and the lacy detail of the shirt is beautiful

MELANIE said...

HOW?! HOOOOWWWW do you always look so amazing? You switch up your look like a chameleon but you amaze each and every day. You look like you could be going to a british tea party in the 20s + horse racing + walking the catwalk
