Colors for Fall

Today was great. The sun was shining like crazy in my office and out on Canal Street, tons of work got done, and the day ended with a beer and conversation on the train home instead of a semi-comatose nap. Now I'm hanging out in my cozy-warm room with the heat on and my favorite Penn State hoodie watching Enchanted. This week feels less stressful than last week. Maybe it was the move to a new office in lower Manhattan, or the relaxing, costumed weekend. Who knows? I just hope it stays like this!
Part of today being so great was liking my outfit. I wish my tights were a golden-tan color and not the exact same as my sweater but c'est la vie! Lately I've just been getting dressed and reminding myself that its just clothes! I can always change them tomorrow. Oh, and this is my amazing new haircut that I let air-dry and slept on and didn't look like a mess! The woman who cut my hair (and has been since I was 17) is amazing.The combo of black/white with red/brown is my new fall obsession. I tried to keep it going all the way through my layers.
H&M dress, BP sweater, Alloy tights, Aerosoles boots, vintage Banana Republic belt, Tan vintage sweater, H&M hat and scarf, Old Navy coat, and the tote is a souvenir my mom brought home from Germany
So readers, what do you do when you've already left the house and you realize you absolutely love/hate what you put on?

  1. I love your new haircut! So cute! :) I'm a fan of red/black/brown combos too, especially in classic shapes like your outfit! I actually like your tights matching your sweater too, it's cute without being too matchy matchy! ;) Great red coat!

  2. Thank you for your comment :) I would love to bike everywhere but I dont have a bike but one day!

    I do love your new hair and I wish I'd got mine done shorter now! Ah well there's always next time :)

    There are days when I feel I've put the wrong thing on but like you I just tell myself tomorrow's another day and I can wear something totally different then.

  6. your outfit reminds me of a chocolate/vanilla swirl icecream cone. Whenever I am not in agreement with my outfit, I try to throw a scarf on (if its chilly out). If it's an oversized one, I can make a wrap/cape out of it :)

  7. Your hair looks so lovely and romantic with the soft waves! Im so jelous!
    I love those colours together, also. Red goes with everything!
    I hate when you dont feel quite right in an outfit.. especially if youre underdressed (Or overdressed which is the more likely situation for me). I usually just tell myself to get over it and be confidant. Although the girl inside of me has been known to end up in tears and not leaving the house because of outfit troubles ;) x

  8. You look so cute! I love a good gingham dress. If I walk out the door in something I hate, I usually change into a standby outfit-- something that I always feel comfortable in no matter what!

  16. Ohmahgaaad your hair looks SO GOOD! I love it! I'm a big advocate of short hair :D

    I'd never think to pair brown with black and white, but it looks wonderful!

    I'm pretty lucky because I live on my college campus, so if I hate what I have on, I can always go change!
