Autumn's Light

I really do need a warm yellow hat to really pull this look together, but I just really wanted to wear my new gloves okay? As it is, my gloves seem a little out of place without that balance, but we'll just pretend it works ;)

I finished a new circle skirt! Hooray! In red cotton sateen too, so it will match many many things already in my closet. This time I paired it with a multicolored chiffon blouse that's been in my wardrobe since high school. I'm not a huge fan of the sleeves on it, but the off center bow is too fun to give up. I also broke out my butterscotch colored maple leaf brooch as it is now officially autumn and I can finally really get away with fall themed accessories! I've got my black Malco Modes petticoat on here, but I think next time I might try layering both my black and my ivory petticoats together for even more poof underneath a circle skirt!

The pumpkins are already placed at our local offshoot of the Denver botanical gardens, and why not now that it is truly fall? It's still pretty hot here most days, but the trees haven't seemed to have noticed the lingering heat as their leaves are already changing rapidly! I've got to hurry and get up to the mountains and capture some of the glittering golden aspens in photos before I lose the chance ;)

Skirt: Made by me
Blouse: Forever 21
Petticoat: Malco Modes
Shoes: Modcloth
Handbag, Gloves, Belt, & Jewelry: Vintage


  1. I have that same maple leaf brooch (and wear it, without fail, each fall). Love that we're pin twinsies (pinsies? :D).

    These photos are jaw-droppingly. What an alluring, elegant series of images and perfectly pretty setting to capture them in.

    It's awesome to see your mustard gloves, too. They compliment the colours at work here to an absolute tee.

    1. Thanks Jessica! I actually saw these pins for the first time being worn by the ever lovely Frances of Polka Polish on her blog and then went to seek them out on Etsy and bought a set for myself! It's rare to be able to do that with vintage, but as these are Avon there seem to be quite a few hanging around :)

  2. The skirt is lovely, and the photoshoot is so perfect!

  3. That first photo Bianca is absolutely other-worldly, it's wonderful. Do you do your own photos with a tripod?

    Well done on finishing the skirt, it looks great. I still haven't finished my practice circle-skirt, because there's just so much hem to do and that's my least favourite task!

    1. Thank you Porcelina! I actually convinced my mom into being my photographer years ago, so she takes nearly all of my outfit photos with me, she's the best! Plus it is so nice having guaranteed time with her on a regular basis as we both get busy with work <3

      As for hemming the circle skirt, I hear you-- as hand sewing everything takes ages. My two recommendations are first hemming with a bias tape facing as it turns out nice and smooth, and two putting on something interesting like a podcast to listen to during the hand stitching :)

  4. These photos are magic, really love that second shot - you look unearthly! Really love that pumpkin display too!

  5. Love, love, LOVE this outfit! And I think the gloves were a great touch!


  6. Beautiful photos and a beautiful outfit. Love the brooch too.
