Fall Fashion Day 5 (another creative title)

I didn't know what I was wearing ahead of time today.  In fact, last night I told my mom, "I don't know what I'm wearing."

Here's what I came up with:
A little more casual than I've been.  I actually end up wearing converse multiple days a week.  They're fun and good for having to walk around all day.
I actually have had this jacket for a long time.  Like, I don't even know how long.  I actually had a second one, with stripes and flowers, but I think I gave it to my sister.  I hope she's enjoying it.
Who doesn't like suede elbow patches?!

And the shirt underneath--one of my few thrifting finds.  I just haven't developed those skills yet.  I'm more of a sales-rack kind of girl.
I've also had these earrings for a while, and don't have a clue where I got them.  But hey, I remembered an accessory!

Also, I'm loving my hair today.  And all I did was roll out of bed and spray it with a little beach spray.  (I know, I hate myself for that, too.)
You know what I'm loving most though?  Having my mom take my picture.  So much better than shooting pictures in the mirror.

Thanks Mom!

Plus you get to see our awesome view.  If you squint and look to the right of my head, you can make out a little bit of the bay.  And these clouds are very beautiful and fall-like.

  11. elbow patches rock the world (my one blazer has them in purple velvet!) and those earrings are so simple and pretty and perfect.

  12. Love the earrings! Perhaps my hubby will photograph me tomorrow, I too am sick of photobooth.

  14. I <3 VS clothes. Secret if you didn't already know, their last season and return items get sent to mjrsales.com and are sold super discounted. Sign up for the mailing list and they always have free shipping codes once or twice a week. I love it.

    Like the converse too, I used to have a purple pair. That's only because my high school's colors were purple and gold though. And purple is rockin'.

  15. I LOVE elbow pads!! I found a DIY for them on martha stewarts sight and plan to add them to a few jackets and cardigans!!

  16. I really like the jacket, those elbow patches are awesome. And your hair is definitely fantastic today!

  17. Lovin' the blouse.
    I've been wanting a pair of chucks for a while now, haven't found *my* pair yet, and can't make my mind up on a color, either.

  18. I love the elbow patches on that jacket! And chucks are perfect for every season :)

  19. Converse are great and nobody doesn't like elbow patches! I've been hankering for a jacket with some.
