Glimpse of Fall
It seems that a lot of bloggers in the personal style 'blogosphere' are pining for fall. I am no exception. These past few days of low-70s temps have already got me scheming up and dreaming about outfits for the cooler temperatures. I love layering, and to be honest, I am ready to not look 'weird' because I am covered up so much. With everyone covering up more for cooler temps, us 'modest folk' won't stand out so much:)
Today was pretty rainy and disgusting. Definitely one of those days where your sweatpants serenade you to stay in them longer (and possibly all day!) However, unfortunately I needed to go to Walgreen's and the post office. After getting dressed I realized that D had taken his raincoat and our only umbrella (why we only have one is beyond me - also, why I didn't get one at Walgreen's is also puzzling:))
In the afternoon the rain cleared a bit and Keppie and I walked over to my friend J's apartment to play with her son C (and to see her beautiful baby boy S again!). My other friend A came with her two daughters, E & K. We sat outside on the (mostly) dry grass and chatted while the kids played and Keppie chilled out and ate some grass (why she loves to eat grass - no clue!).
After D came home, we went to Costco and came out with a full cart (it's so hard not to, no?). We had leftover soup for dinner and hung out watching some T.V. It ended up being a pretty good day despite the grossness outside, hence why the pictures are inside today as well. I hate taking the pics inside, but if it's gross out or if I wait too long and lose the light, inside just has to do.
Since the temps were cooler, I knew that I wanted to layer. I have been loving my madras button-down and since it has grayish undertones, I threw on a gray sweater over it. My everyday jean skirt has gotten too big (so sad, right?:)) and so it finally bit the dust. I pulled this shorter (less structured) dark, denim pencil skirt out of my closet (it never really fit that well when I bought it, so it has been hanging in my closet for months) tried it on...and voila! Fits like a glove now:) Yay for shopping in my own closet! I don't have very many summery hats, so since it was so cool out I decided to pull out on of my fall berets. I had to pin it on because my hair is so fine that it was slipping all over the place without clips. I can't wait to break out the rest of my fall/winter hats:)

Are you pining for fall or still hanging on to summer??
