Pretty Fall Brights!

Hey everyone! I decided to mix all my brights together today to counteract the gray clouds! I love wearing this skirt in the fall. I feel like the bright green is such a foil for the darker fall colors and lightens up an outfit. The blue top adds the electricity!

The burgundy sweater you’ve seen before (many times!) and I have no intention of giving it a rest. I have even pulled out my grey and black sweater, just like this one, anticipating more sweater weather as the temperature cools down. Everything I’m wearing today you’ve seen before on the blog. Proof that you don’t always have to have something new and it can be fun to mix things up a bit in your closet!

The blue shirt is an on-trend item right now. That means I’m going to wear the heck out of it because in a year or so it will look outdated (unless I do some sewing with the choker part of the shirt and then it’s just a classic v-neck, hmmmmmm). Adding a trendy shirt or two is an easy way to update your wardrobe and usually pretty easy to pair with the more classic items in your closet.

This sweater looks so darn cute when the wind is blowing it around!

The leopard print flats are getting a lot of wear this fall too. I usually wear some kind of heel with a skirt since I think it looks more professional and a little more formal. However, sometimes you just don’t feel like wearing heels. I decided to give the flats a try since I see lots of women wearing them this way and they look cute, though a little more casual. I can’t wear the teenager kind of flats because there usually is no support, but these have cushion in the sole so are more comfortable. Plus, this leopard print pairs really well with the brights and I could see some cute leopard print mules looking very smart here too (especially these!).

And I don’t know if I need to talk about the purse anymore since I’ve talked about it so much already. I considered pulling out my black purse to kind of ground the outfit in neutral black and match up the tights, but I have a hard time exchanging this purse for a bland one. I’m finding the pumpkin color still brings me a smile!

You will be happy to know that I am getting better at taking my own photos (finally!) and have found some good spots in my backyard. You can see in the distance my horses who are very uninterested and unimpressed with my photography skills as they keep their heads down grazing the grass the whole time! Oh well! Have a great week everyone!

  1. No, YOU look so darn cute when the wind is blowing you around! 🙂

    I love your kaleidoscope of colors! Very fun for a grey and cloudy day. I haven’t QUITE had the heart to switch over to fall clothes yet, but I need to soon.

    I don’t remember reading what you’re doing with your horses when you move? At our (married) first house we had a 4-stall barn, with my guy Robbie, his babysitter Leroy, and my daughter’s pony Penny Candy, and it was heartbreaking when we decided to move to a better area and I had to rehome all the horses.


    1. Well, the horse question is still up in the air. I’m taking one to NC for sure. My daughter is responsible for her one horse. My other two, very loved, very old horses are the tough decisions. One of the horses is almost 30 and the other, almost 40, and blind in one eye and deaf in one ear. The move would be very hard on them so I’m waiting until I have to make a decision to make the decision on what to do. That’s why this move is so hard. It’s not just changing houses or towns or states. It’s a change of lifestyle. It’s hard being an adult!
