Falling into Fall

Tomorrow is the first day of fall. Waah. I love the beginning of fall, but hate the way it ends. All bitter and cold with winter-like weather creeping in. If only I can live in a land of eternal summer all year round! Sigh.

Wrap cardigan, gifted to me similar here, silk top c/o Mott & Bow, black skinny jeans c/o Mott & bow, blue turquoise disk dangle earrings, Target, black wedge sandals, similar, here. Tortoiseshell cat ear sunglasses, Betsey Johnson. Don’t give a damn attitude, earned it.

Time to start transitioning our summer clothes into fall appropriate attire. Today I am adding a wrap poncho. Wrap cardigan? Wrap? Not sure what this is. This wrap thingamabob. (Yes. I think that’s a word. My dad uses it all the time. Haha.) This was given to me by someone who wasn’t quite sure how to wear it. Well. Neither am I sure how to style it, but I thought I’d give it a go.

I chose to wrap the cardigan wrap thingy around my waist and tied it in the back.

Is it weird in the back? And do I care? No. I do not care.

This is what it looks like un-wrapped around my waist. It’s long, the sides hang down. It’s fun, but really, how did the maker intend for this to be worn? I really want to know.

Conclusion of the weird wrap cardigan thingamajig: It’s soft and warm and weird shaped, but I like it. Still don’t know if I’m wearing it ‘properly’. Still don’t care. I think I’ll play around with this one a bit more as autumn overtakes us.

How to bring spring colors into your end of winter wardrobe

Spring is coming! It’s not here yet, but it’s on it’s way. We are occasionally getting nice spring like weather days around here and I am ready for it. But, how to incorporate that almost spring feel  and spring colors into your end of winter attire?

 

Spring style

 

Take those warmer weather days and just go for it!

 

Slate blue coat + rose gold accessories

 

Start bringing out your lighter jackets, short sleeve shirts, your shorter pants and wearing your shoes without socks.

 

Shades of blue

 

Lighten up the colors a bit. Add in your pastels.

 

White sweater, + jeans with pearls & a slate blue coat

 

Bring out your bright turquoise’s, pinks & yellows and mix and match with your winter wardrobe.

 

White fluffy sweater, blue coat, denim with pearls + rose gold accessories

 

Add a pop of color in an accessory like scarves, purses or shoes.

 

A perfect day for the park

 

Wear a coat in a lighter or brighter color.

 

Booty, booty!

 

It’s all in the details. Like these wonderful pastel pearls on these jeans.

 

Pearl details

 

Or rose gold sunglasses and simple pastel pink pearl earrings.

 

Pink pearl earrings, silver pearl bun band, rose gold sunglasses

 

And by all means, jump for joy because spring is coming!!! You know I am.

*Side story on this photo. I was told to try some jumping jacks, running and some lunges by my chiropractor. He seemed to think it might help loosen things up and get me past all the flare-ups of pain I’ve been having. (Like, how do you loosen up an area that has a cyst, right?)  So I decided to pull a jumping jack in the air. The pain did go up to a 4 and I got kind of stiff after that, but no major flare-ups of pain. The same with the running. Unfortunately, the lunges I tried a few weeks later totally did me in. So far, my pain triggers are going up and down hills, lunges, and arching my back way too much while doing the ‘superwoman’ exercise on my exercise ball, and standing too long without enough breaks for sitting. Any others have yet to be discovered…
