It is officially autumn when I start listening to Margot and the Nuclear So and So's Broadripple is Burning. In the beginning of my final year at college I found their brand new album in a pile of CD's at the student radio station and listened to it on repeat until all the leaves had fallen and the smell of snow hung heavy in the air. That was my last year living in central Pennsylvania where the autumn colors are daylight fireworks. The passage of the seasons sneaks up on me in New York and it changes instantaneously. I loved easing into each season, seeing the daily changes, and slowly soaking in the sound of a single band over the course of a few weeks.
While my outfit has very little to do with my musical signal that the seasons have changed, it does feel like very seasonally appropriate attire. I picked up this secondhand Marc by Marc Jacobs skirt a few weeks ago at Beacon's Closet. The rich colors and geometric pattern drew me to it initially, but the kicky inverted pleats and twirl factor made it an immediate favorite. I paired it with autumnal staples including my trusty vintage Selby pumps and cozy navy sweater.
