OCTOBER UNIFORM

Gooooodbyyyyyyye October! I miss you already!

Unlike years past, I wasn't sad with fall's arrival. In fact, I was enamored with watching the season change in front of my eyes as each day passed. The leaves! The fall air! The food! I loved it all! I did go a little nuts on the pumpkin-flavored things, thanks to Trader Joe's. I made my first batch of chili last week and I couldn't have been happier! Christopher and I did miss out on going apple picking or taking our kayaks out for a fall ride, but next year we will squeeze them in!

Throughout the month the weather was cool but comfortable. I lived in light jackets and got back into draping myself in scarves that are basically blankets.

Here was my uniform:

TOP
Light weight tops were still on heavy rotation because of the addition of a…

JACKET
Mainly utility jackets like my 'Daria' coat that I've had for years or I would reach for my rain jacket.

ACCESSORIES
Blanket scarves all the way! I picked up two recently and there is nothing better than being wrapped in a blanket AND it be socially acceptable. The trick for me was finding ones that aren't too big, because I still like to be able to move my neck and not suffocate. HA!

BOTTOM
Black skinny pants because they go with everything!!!!!!!

HAIR
I recently got a hair cut and I love the way it was done. It has a lot more shape and bounce. I let it go as wild as possible most days.

MAKE-UP
Neutral. Everything on my face has been minimal, which is not out of the ordinary, but I have been drawn to simple color palettes like browns and creams for the eyes and throwing on a nude matte lip.

SCENT
Dark, deep, a little spicy and smoooooth. I have been really enjoying wearing the perfume Velvet Orchid by Tom Ford lately. It smells like all of what's great about fall and winter. I got a sample size from amazon which is the perfect amount for me.

FEET
Black ankle boots have returned to my closet! I have a pair of flat black boots that I got second hand but I also got a new pair to join the herd. These boots have a very sassy high, for me, heel (seen in the photo above). I am not a fan of heels, I almost never wear them, but these are actually comfortable and I think they make my legs look pretty πŸ‘Œ.

BAG
My trusty satchel. It is my day-to-day purse bestie, we go everywhere together.
