Pattern Mixing for Fall

Yesterday my classmates were all talking about how terrible the foliage was this year. Obviously, they were just looking in the wrong places! The park near me is full of beautiful trees but sadly, I’m not sure how many photos I’ll get there this week. As I write this, it is pouring outside and it doesn’t seem like it’ll be stopping anytime soon. But I really can’t remember a fall this colorful. It really is magical!

And last week when I shot these it was pretty warm! The temperature finally dropped this weekend but I was definitely comfortable in just a skirt and long-sleeved top last week. I still think this is such a perfect fall outfit! And, of course, everything besides my shoes is secondhand.

This shirt has become such a staple in my wardrobe over the past year. I love when I bring a piece home from the thrift store and I can find so many more ways to wear it than I first imagined! I picked up this shirt last spring and loved pairing it with jeans or work pants. It’s an easy and comfortable shirt that I’ve found pretty useful in my wardrobe, especially with red becoming a more dominating color. I also love this pleated skirt I picked up years ago from the thrift store. I never would have thought they’d pair so well together but something about the patterns works wonderfully!

My shoes are new (I thought I had ruined them with this gloomy shoot but thankfully not!) as Old Navy was having a pretty big sale recently. I hadn’t tried their childrens’ shoes so I picked up these flats for a mere $10! But let me tell you…. they are so. painful. They’ve gotten a little bit more comfortable as I’ve worn them a few times (and with lots of band-aids!) but I wouldn’t say they are comfortable yet.
