     I'm going to be honest here- fall is not my favorite season. In fact, I think it's my least favorite. I feel terrible for saying that since every blogger seems to be tweeting, Instagramming and posting nonstop right now about their love for this time of year. It's taken me awhile to get into the spirit of autumn this year... but after yesterday I think I'm finally alright with the new fall season! When I left for classes yesterday morning there was a distinct chill in the air, and I found myself embracing it.

     This outfit is a whole mix of things and I wasn't sure if it would all come together, but my pictures tell me that it did. :-) This is the first time that I've worn this chambray shirt. I got it this summer on Piperlime, which is an awesome online clothing retailer. It's owned by the Gap corporation, and there's many great designers featured on it for affordable prices! Everything that I've ordered from Piperlime has always been on sale, and I've yet to be dissapointed by something that I've gotten there. 

     I got a lot of compliments on wearing this outfit the other day, and it made me excited to style more fall outfits!! I've already moved some of my summer dresses to the back of my dorm closet to be able to highlight my fall and winter attire. :-)

  2. This is a great look! I love the vest you have on. Who knows, maybe this year will the year when you turn into a fall lover!?

  3. Love the outfit! I want your bag!!!


  4. I am not the biggest fan of fall either, but I do like wearing that's almost enough to win me over!
    I like wearing black and blue outfits, too!

  5. You look cute!!! Love the boots!
