Weekend Wardrobe: Come On, Fall! Get Here!

'
Headscarf: Vintage/Similar; Necklace: Woodii; Vintage Cardigan: Trove Vintage/Similar; T-shirt: Urban Outfitters; Jeans: Urban Outfitters; Flats: ModCloth.

Well, guys, it's official. My brain is convinced that it's fall. Yea, I know, it's still August, but something about the cool evenings, gorgeous evening light, and my deep seeded love of cozy clothing has me yearning.

Practically, I can't bust out all of my fall clothing yet, but I'm taking every opportunity I can get to bust out pieces here and there.

I picked this cardigan up at Trove Vintage in Ballard a couple of weeks ago, and am completely in love with it. I've been using every excuse possible to wear it. On Sunday I even wore it to a sunny day at the farmers market because it was a touch chilly. I'm pretty sure I'll be living in it once the weather cools down a bit more. 

We should probably also talk about that fact that I'm wearing pants. Pants! I know, weird. I own 3 pairs of pants these days, 2 of which have been acquired in the last month. I don't usually wear pants because, in all honesty, they're less comfortable to me than dresses, but also because I usually have a SUPER hard time finding any that fit me (you may notice, I have some very, er, womanly hips). Well, turns out Urban Outfitters has changed the sizing on their jeans somewhat recently, and now they fit like a glove! So that's fun! Pants!

In other news, I'm currently on staycation! I'll be off of work through Labor Day, so I'm hoping to spend lots of time canning, organizing, working of projects, hanging out with the cats, and hanging out with a good friend of mine who is moving at the end of the month. I've also got some birthday festivities planned, so it should be a great week!

Do you guys have anything exciting planned for the week ahead?

Til next time!

  1. Love this outfit :) a staycation is one of my favorite things ever! My plans are not nearly as fun as yours.... I am having a garage sale this weekend. I am trying to purge myself of all the "stuff" I
    have aquired over the years.

    1. Thanks, Alecia! That sounds like a pretty good week to me! I'll be spending a chunk of mine just cleaning and working on blog stuff (the un-fun behind the scenes stuff), so I'll be in the same boat for a lot of my staycation. That stuff is so not fun while you're doing it, but feels great to have it over and done with!

  2. Isn't finding a good fitting pair of pants the absolute worst?! Happy to hear you found a good pair! I'm in fall mode too, apparently. I end up wearing cardigans every day and just sweating in the car on the way to work, haha!
