Well, Okay Then

I still have no idea where I'll be going after I graduate in May, but I'm starting to realize that this might very possibly be my last Midwest fall. So when the leaves started turning unbelievably beauitful shades or red, yellow, and orange, and cardigans were in full force, I couldn't help but soak it all up...for about three days. Apparently, the Midwest decided that my last Illinois fall can look pretty, but is going to feel like winter. All of a sudden, it's freezing, and my heavy jackets are still in storage at my brother's house, and I feel like I'm going to die if I don't get them soon. Okay, I'm exaggerating a little (which I know I'll regret by the time it's actually winter), but what I'm trying to say is, if it looks like I'm cold in these photos – I am. Wasn't I just sans tights just two outfit posts ago?

Weather aside, I was excited to wear this outfit yesterday. Persunmall sent me this lace dress this week, but unfortunately it fit a little smaller around my waist than I would like. Luckily, it worked perfectly under this light gray skirt, and I think I might like it even better as a top. I've been searching for more things this color, and I love the sweetheart neckline and sheer sleeves. I'm definitely going to be layering this one up all season. 

I was also sent this necklace from eFoxcity that I can't get enough of. I really like that it's a little different for me, and I think it's a fun piece to add to outfits. Plus, it's kind of fun to have a pop of pink, which is rare for me. If you didn't know yet, eFoxcity is a great website to find wholesale clothing from Chinaevening dresses for 2013, and is really the best place to go for wholesale ladies clothing.

Of course, I have to mention these boots. They're exactly the pair I had been searching for, and they may not leave my feet for a while. You've been warned. 

As for my personal life, I'm pretty pumped that this week went by fast. I've been a ton of fun with my friends lately, and I'm looking forward to seeing what this weekend has in store for me. Mostly though, I just can't wait to sleep in. But isn't every weekend like that?

    This red dress as a top is gorgeous, a really pretty colour on you and looks perfect under the grey skirt :) Stay warm!

  3. The same thing happened where I live. It was almost summer like weather up until three days ago and then all of a sudden there was snow and below zero temperatures :S Yikes!

  7. This outfit is so cute! I love love love the lace top SO much. It's so pretty! And that necklace; I agree, it's really fun to have a few items that aren't your usual style. I think it helps keep getting dressed fun, and personally it keeps me from getting stuck in a rut!

  8. You look so cute! I love the lace dress as a top. And I think the Midwest is just being evil with winter this year. We had snow in Ohio on Wednesday and Thursday.


  9. Perfect booties alert! Also I love this color, especially in a lace fabric! Persunmall I always think runs really small, I always go for whatever the largest size they offer is and then its usually still a gamble haha!
    Happy Friday, hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!
