Skippy Says: Fall Envy (OOTD)

I'm a little bit of a control freak. Ok, a lot bit. So when there are things I can't control, like, you know, the weather, I'm not too happy. Here's the thing: the weather in San Francisco has been gorgeous lately. Like 80+ degrees. And while I know I should take advantage of this very rare occasion, seeing all the other bloggers in their comfy knits and boots is making me a little bit jealous. Ugh, fine, a lot bit.

Since the weather doesn't seem to care that I'm green with envy, I decided to to Fall-ize (quiet you, it's a word now) a summer outfit. I recently scored this top on sale, and the colors in it are perfectly Fall. But it's light and airy, meaning I don't have to walk around sweaty and smelling my armpits all day to see if I need to apply more deodorant. It's a win-win people.








Shop:
- Anthropologie top (bought on sale for $15, no longer available online. May still be in some stores)
- Anthropologie shorts (bought on sale, gift from my mother-in-law. Buy similar one sale here or here or really cute Marc Jacobs ones here)
- J Crew shoes (bought on sale for $60, no longer available)
- Purse (gift from my best friends from my birthday a few years ago)
- Earrings from a random little store on Haight street ($5!)
- Necklace borrowed from my mom

  28. Love the OOTD!!! Where you took the pictures, it looks like a nice place to sit, that's quiet, and have my coffee (light & sweet) .... read my book; have my cigarettes w/ my coffee (to quote you - quiet now ;) ) .... in that drowsy-comfortable state that such places bring

  42. I've actually been walking in sweaters/knits/boots ever since it hit 75 - nasty, I know.

    Now that it's in the mid-lower 60's here I can literally breathe a sigh of relief. No more smelling like a wrestling ring for me!

    You look very cute in your fall-ish outfit. I hope you get to enjoy your knots soon!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Knits. Fate wouldn't have me spell things right today.

    ReplyDelete
  44. We actually bought them together and I picked them out :) But she does have great taste!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hehe, thanks Anna!! I'm one of those people who can't handle being overheated and much prefer feeling cold to hot so unfortunately that won't work for me...It'll cool down soon enough though, I'm sure.
