        Is it me or did summer just wiz by? I can hardly believe it's already september, sheesh. It seems the weather has caught on to the change in season as well. Last week it went from the 90's to almost needing a jacket/sweater. Though I do miss the longer days and warmer weather I have to admit I'm a little excited for fall. I'm ready for layers, leather and BOOTS!! It is my mission to find at least one pair of amazing boots that I will promptly wear all the time. I've already been looking around but I have big calves and a good pair of boots can be hard, and sometimes expensive, to find. So the search continues.

       Anyway I wore this outfit awhile ago (in August actually) to go visit my grandpa and run some errands. As you can see I'm color blocking again! This is the skirt I previously mentioned that I got while thrifting. It's a purple Go International knit pencil skirt. I think it was originally from target, though I don't remember ever seeing it in store. I love the skirt it's fun, colorful and I think it could work with a variety of different looks. I found this shirt at my favorite thrift store this summer when they were having an odd not on a holiday 50% off sale. By the time I got to the store it was pretty picked over but I managed to find two t-shirts. This is my favorite of the two, I'm obsessed with this shirt and it's red/orange color.  A great t-shirt really is a staple for any wardrobe since you can dress it up or down in millions of ways. I didn't drastically change this outfit because it think it translates pretty seamlessly from day to night with few tweaks. You could wear the day version at night and the night version during the day but I figured I'd style it both ways so you get a good visual. For day I stayed with minimal accessories and flats,  for night I dressed it up a bit with black heels and gold necklace. I love this outfit and I'm pretty confident it can also translate well to fall/winter. Add some tights, boots and maybe a leather jacket and you've got a great outfit for fall as well.
