American Eagle open knit sweater // Vintage burgundy button up shirt // Harajuku Mini tartan pants // Simply Vera chain necklace // ALDO velvet heels

I went to San Francisco over the weekend and  finally had a chance to wear a fall outfit! I originally wore this with a skirt, but had to change because it was too cold. (Good thing I came prepared with 2 pairs of pants!) I still have maybe 2 or 3 summer outfits that I want to post, but other than that, I can't wait to dive into fall! I have this rust colored dress a great sequin skirt that I'm dying to wear. (It's never too early for a little holiday sparkle!) I'm also obsessing over this burgundy shirt. I got it for $1 at a garage sale, and the color and feel are perfect for fall!

Feather Bow Tie

Covington blouse // Vintage skirt // Our House Vintage and Design feather bow tie necklace from giveaway // Charlotte Russe polka dot pumps

I thought that this feather bow tie was a really fun accessory so I whipped up a cute little ensemble that kind of reminds me of a candy store! (I'm not sure if he even wears a bow tie, but it reminds me of Willy Wonka.) :) And in other news, I can't wait for fall! I'm always so tempted to wear my fall outfits when it's still eighty degrees outside! But while I don't think that it'll be getting chilly anytime soon in sunny California, at least it gives me time to get some much needed fall/winter neccessities. A good pair of boots, a leather jacket, I have a lot of shopping to do! (And unfortunately on a very tight budget!) Wish me luck!

Mint Duster

Vintage mint duster, speckled maxi skirt worn as hi-lo dress, metallic lavender belt // Steve Madden "Grettta" heels

I love dusters and long, flowy outerwear! I was slightly hesitant to buy this duster at first, since I had gotten a somewhat similar sheer duster (seen here) just a few months before. But I had nothing else mint colored (gasp) and it was only $5, so I figured why not. It's not very noticable in these photos, but the duster has slits on the sides, so there's really nice movement when the wind blows. I'm always a fan of clothes with great movement! I really want to get a long kimono jacket next, maybe one with fringe!

Beaded Leather Shorts

Forever 21 sheer shirt, leather shorts // H&M clear strap sandals, bodycon skirt (from this post) worn as tube top

I was searching for a pair of black leather shorts for winter, but came across these instead. The light blush / nude shade made it ideal for spring and summer and I couldn't resist the beaded detailing! Leather shorts are great for days when it's too hot for pants, but still a little chilly out. I also love the soft, buttery feel, which makes them super comfy! But while I'm set for summer and maybe some of fall, I'm still on the quest to find the perfect leather shorts for winter. (Yes, I'm already starting to build my winter wardrobe! You know you were ready to rock those spring pastels while freezing in January.) I'm looking for a pair in a darker color like black or burgundy. If I'm lucky, I might be able to find one with studs and it can act as a counterpart to this pair!

In Full Bloom

Vintage Old Navy denim jacket // Eshakti dress from giveaway // TBA (To Be Announced) shoes

New shoes! My family always complains that I have too many shoes. But really, one can never have too many shoes! I love the fun color as well as the lacing and gold tips. This was also my first time ordering from Solestruck and I just have to take a moment to comment on their service. Inside the package, they included a specially customized Solestruck bandaid that says "Shoe Addict". I just thought that it was such a cute and thoughtful gesture because everyone understands the pain of breaking in new shoes! Haha, I just had to share that since it was so sweet. But luckily these shoes are so comfortable and bandaids will not be needed. :) (Flats on the other hand....) Well, have a great rest of the week and go crazy at those 4th of July sales!

PS: Use the code FL24FAN for 10% off at Eshakti! Can be combined with other offers online. Ends August 31, 2012.
