I love summer, it's my favorite season of the year.  I don't love the mosquitoes, but I'm willing to take them for the sunshine and lush greenery.  But gosh darn it, I love me some fall fashion!  Once the temps drop below 80, I'm whipping out the hats, the boots, and the sweaters.  I got this sweater during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and while it's not super heavy (and does have the cold shoulders), this is the first day it has been worn.  The rest of the look are pieces I've already owned and besides the hat, they've all been featured before on the blog.  I love that I'm building a wardrobe of pieces that work year after year yet can also work with current trends. It's not immediate, this has been a learning process as I have changed careers, body shape, age, and interests.  Personal style is a constant evolution, but there's been continuous themes for me – orange, leopard, silver jewelry, large bags, denim, leather, printed maxi dresses, pointed toe pumps, calfhair…

For those who have come here from the main page, you may see the layout it slightly different.  I'm getting complaints that the site takes too long to load.  Having over 11 years of outfit photos and many from the past that were not compressed, I'm not surprised and I'm hoping this will help the situation.  For those who follow by RSS, email, or get the links on social media, there shouldn't be much of a difference.  Let me know if you encounter any issues!

    What a great outfit. I love that you mixed the warm tone (orange) with black and silver. I often get hung up matching warm tones with gold, but I see that it really works with silver too. Thanks for your great posts Allie.

      My pleasure Janet! And it’s good to buck tradition and try unexpected combinations. I’ll admit when I first put on this outfit I had on a gold necklace but it looked too… something. Polished? Fussy? Something. I took off the necklace and grabbed this bag thinking I’d change it to something without silver hardware and looked at myself in the reflection and liked what I saw so I styled around it. Sometimes unexpected pairings are just what the closet needed!

    Holy moly Allie—this looks fantastic!!
    It’s simple, yet very eye catching—the color of the shirt is wonderful—I love the cut outs on the shoulders!
    And those boots make me salivate!!
