Ninety days of sweat and dirt feels like one night...


- Blowing Breeze Dress courtesy of Modcloth
- UO fatigue jacket
- vintage ankle boots
- vintage Coach purse
- F21 necklace
- listening to: Murder by Death - Who Will Survive and What Will Be Left of Them? "Until Morale Improves..."


In case you're wondering, yes, it was a bit warm yesterday to be wearing a jacket. I must admit I think I've been bitten by the "fall bug". I promise not to drone on and on about it. Frequently I get comments like, "why are you always talking about the next season, instead of just being happy with the one you're living now?" Well, that's just the nature of fashion isn't it? Always being a season ahead?

Anyhoo... I finally found the perfect pair of boots I was craving. These even have little fringe across the toe which makes me happy. I'm sure I'll wearing them quite a bit this fall (oops, I said I wasn't going to mention that again, didn't I ?).

those vintage-y, fall-ish boots are just exquisitely perfect, aren't they?


p.s. i'm a fall follower and fan too.

This outfit is perfect! It's just like that collage you posted a while back of wishlist items.. nice thriftin' work! I used to listen to Murder by Death a lot, haven't heard them in years though now. Gotta rediscover!

I just browsed through Modcloth's dress selection yesterday and this was one of my top picks.

I LOVE Murder By Death.

And I agree with you about wanting it to be the next season.

And I love the dress/jacket combo.

I love the boots! They're pretty close to those Jeffrey Campbell boots you posted about below (which I also love!).

I love these photos, Sally Jane. Especially the first -- what effects do you use?

These photos are so beautifully glowing, and nostalgic. I feel like I don't have the perfect words to describe them. :)

I love Murder by Death. Not many people have heard of them. Who Will Survive and What Will be Left of Them is probably their best album of all time. I saw them about 4 or 5 years ago with Minus the Bear. Great show!

Anyways, I love the styling of your dress. It is such a great print!

I love the ankle boots in this look and the army jacket ah so perfect! I've been bitten by the fall bug too despite it being swelteringly hot where I am.

Wow love the colours - your hair colour just makes the whole outfit work even more!
Addicted to Khaki right now by the way! My anorak is a happy edition to my closet =) xo

I love that the toe cap looks like it's in a shade darker of leather, they're so cool!

Bea said...

Those are really cool items for fall. They just bring such a tough-ness to your outfits. I like them a lot! Perfect match!

It looks great! I love your shoes. I can´t help dressing for the fall either, especially when it's so rainy in sweden right now. Take a look at my blog if you're interested:

I love the mix of colours here so much. The boots really go nicely with each piece.

Cecilia said...

It's ok to talk about fall! We all have our seasons we look forward to. I like fall (not as much as summer) but I hate that it's the season that leads into winter (yuck).


Natasha said...

those boots are fantabulous.

Photos like this make me want to chop my foot in half. I can never find vintage shoes to house these monsters.

your dress is lovely too!

Marie said...

I love this outfit! This dress...this jacket...so beautiful!

Amelia said...
