One hot autumn day...

I love fall fashion. I love fall, period, but I love fall fashion- I'd rather wear tights, mary janes, slouchy sweaters, boots, booties, denim, plaid, scarves, military coats, flannel... the list goes on, than anything else. I prefer fall to winter for the fact that I can still wear all my favorite skirts and dresses, pulled together with a cardi, coat or blazer, at any time. Especially here in southern California, where it seems like it's always fall weather, until the summer when it gets blazing hot. The past week or so has been wonderful, but the weather gods decided to take that from us today.

I woke up and immediately pretended the weather was still perfect. I put on a pot of coffee, put a roast in the slow cooker for dinner, and cuddled up on the couch under a quilt before work. Of course, my AC was on... but it was a good morning. :)

When I started getting ready for work, though, I decided I couldn't go all day long pretending it was fall. I decided to thrown on one of my warm weather staples, a t-shirt that I sliced the neck and shoulders off of, some comfy jeans and a pair of flats. My photography class met at a gallery today, so I knew I'd be walking around downtown. As I was getting ready, I was really feeling this awesome 50's pinup vibe, so I ended up wearing my favorite bright red lipstick and a muted, earth-tone cat eye. Here are a few shots of my outfit, I apologize for the quality:

Again, sorry for the picture quality. I took them right before I left with my phone. I think I'll be getting a professional camera for Christmas, but until then, this is the best I can do!

Today has been good, and I'm looking forward (not really) to an afternoon of homework and (yes really) to an evening with the boyfriend.

Try to stay cool (or warm!),
