Where is Fall?

Posted on: October 13, 2016

We got hit by Hurricane Matthew and had lots of flooding,

trees down, electricity out , vehicles damaged, etc 

in our city, but lucky for us we just went without electricity for 28 hours.   

Matthew brought with him a tease of Fall temps the day or two afterwards 

For Some Inspiration from Other Bloggers for Fall Looks, Go Peruse the Link up at 

Fashion Should Be Fun.

and I managed to wear a new for the season fringe sweater( on clearance now) 

 and boho jeans(sold out),

but these are the best photos I managed as I was taking them at the wrong time of day. 

I found this rhinestone letter T at Hobby Lobby recently and it’s actually a pin, I just put on a chain.

Today, I am left faking Fall, as we are experiencing a sunny 75 degrees.  

A long sleeve striped sweater and a poncho worked perfectly for pretending.

These are all items from previous seasons that are now workhorses, vetted 

and much loved.  In fact that Old Navy poncho was a thrifted find. 

The striped sweater was an end of season clearance from Ann Taylor

one place I only shop online at end of season clearance time.  

That link will send you to Ann Taylor’s clearance which is an additional 40% off right now, 

and the time when I usually shop for a good deal.

This trend of rolling up jeans above the ankle boots and showing a little skin  works for now and into 

 Fall, but I doubt I will be doing it through Winter.   

A good navy bag is a must in my world and this Madi Claire is sold out, but

This one is available…. as is 

726-448- Madi Claire Three-Piece "Devon" Croco Embossed Leather Tote Bag w/ Wristlet & Card Holder Set

This tote version with accessories and a nice tassle.

I am loving doubling up on the necklaces a lot lately. 

This combo began with the large purple sliced stone piece that I picked up at Michael’s. 

Of course it would work well on a long chain, but in order to double it up, 

I opted to wear it on my new silver collar necklace (sold out) 

Dear Readers, Thanks for Stopping by, I adore hearing from you, and 

greatly appreciate each and every comment. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that even though my sneezing didn’t go away all day, at least they became less often throughout the day. ( just after I completed typing this DD had a sneezing spout come on with 5 in a row) 

I am grateful for my morning walk in the sunshine to get salad fixings to get back on track with healthy eating, as I have been terrible since I returned from the cruise.  

I am grateful that my son away at college with our new bunny is doing a fantastic job of keeping us in the loop of her progress and cute behavior traits that are coming out as she explores her newfound freedom as a beloved pet and not a breeders show bunny.  

I am grateful for sleeping in until 7:330 this morning , as it sure beats this darn menopausal change of 5-6am!  

I am grateful for a nice walk with my daughter yesterday to the Dollar Store and AC Moore craft store as we had fun conversations with women and it was nice to see my daughter in that light , talking to older women.  It was even better that she commented how nice that felt.

Thank you, would be honored to see your recreation…

You are very lucky woman that your husband or designated other allows you to post pictures and model all those outfits. I used to have a blog and model all my new clothes because of my OCD condition. I was addicted to HSN and QVC and had closets full of clothes even though I rarely left the house. My husband saw all my pictures and and read my blog.because I would model and post when he was not at home.I was not even able to work outside the home or drive He had me involuntarily committed by court order to a psychiatric facility for this and took all my clothes to a dumpster. I had years of therapy for this and now have a new husband who has changed my life. Count your blessings.

Melody , thank you so much for sharing your story. I am so happy to hear that you were able to get away from that kind of toxicity. I am sure the addiction to shopping was a direct result of having someone controlling so much. Glad that you have healing and a new life in which to grow. I appreciate the meaning of not taking my life for granted and the moment to really grasp that provided by you sharing. Thank you !

Love both sweaters. Sporting a purple sweater myself today. Wearing it with a gray tank and dark Ann Taylor skinny jeans. Love Ann Taylor. Especially clearance or thrift! I could never pay full price. 😃

I’ve seen more Loft versions while thrifting than actual Ann Taylor , but regardless, I wouldn’t pay full price for either…

“Faking fall” that’s so funny! Lovely autumnal outfits Tracey! I really like the gray fringed sweater. Purple is such a regal colour and you look beautiful in it. It dresses up your outfit. Love your jewellery!
