Aw look, the time before the snow had fallen, such memories! Now the world outside is carpeted in white, but just last Saturday everything still looked perfectly autumnal out. I wore this little outfit while I was out running errands with my mom around town. It was a bit hard to get photos is the rather bright midday light, but elsewhere this seemingly nondescript outfit got me a lot of attention! It was almost comical how many compliments I received for this look while we were out, thank you for the confidence boost fellow townsfolk! I think it was the combination of the velvet hat and the fluted skirt, it just sorta screams vintage.
I made this taupe/grey bow blouse in my recent bow blouse sewing binge. I can't decide if the fabric is silk or rayon (I haven't tested it), I picked it up for just $4 a yard in the discount area of my favorite shop. It is perfectly flowy and will match almost all of my skirts so it was a good buy at less than the price of a grande at Starbucks. For its first outing I paired it with my grey fluted pencil skirt and red and black accessories. I just love this little rose brooch I picked up at a street market a few years ago, it is one of my favorites!
Now that the snow has fallen, I'll be missing the last of these fine fall days! Time to turn to more warm and wintry fashions for the rest of the year :)
