Falling for autumn

Bloglovin’ // Facebook // Twitter

Half of my closet is piled on an arm chair in the corner of my bedroom. It’s better than the floor, right? Instead of doing laundry and putting my clothes away, read: responsible, I spent the day baking, read: fun. That also means I spent the day taste testing, read: yum.

I am ready to kick Autumn’s ass, even though it’s still in the 80’s and sunny, not a multi-colored leaf in sight, and definitely not sweater weather yet. My Autumn to-do list includes baking as many pumpkin flavored treats as I can stuff into people’s faces, wearing a lot of boots and socks, going apple picking, carving pumpkins, getting the shit scared out of me at Halloween Horror Nights, and sticking to October Unprocessed.

Do you have an Autumn to-do list?

Clearly, I am not going to take off this hat for the entire Autumn season.

And I have been using ‘Autumn’ instead of ‘Fall’ because it makes me feel smarter.

See that wall behind me. It’s a piece of the Berlin wall, showcased across the street from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Kind of cool.

Speaking of museums, they make me feel dumb. Am I totally missing something or does a piece of wood bolted onto the wall not represent the future of the economy?

Then we found a room with a collage of tween idols and magazine covers, and I was back in my element. It was the only one I was able to explain to Ugly Mug. Booya.

Also, food trucks? Yes, please.

    Great photos! The dress is so lovely. Floral print dresses with tough-looking boots is my favourite look for fall, or for anytime really 😉 The Berlin Wall installation looks really neat- it must feel pretty powerful to be close to such a significant piece of history. Thanks for for sharing!

  12. Love the dress! My autumn to-do list includes keeping on top of all my schoolwork! Ugh. But I guess I can add drinking as many salted caramel hot chocolates as possible too! 😉

    So cute!! And yes, “autumn” is so scholarly of you – especially due to the fact there are pics of you in front of a piece of the Berlin Wall in the same post. #smartiepants

    October Unprocessed sounds awesome – but kind of miserable – not for the eating part of it (I LOVE healthy, unprocessed foods), but for the cooking part. I hate cooking. I should fix that. Le sigh.

    xo,

    Hi dear, thanks for visiting, wow, absolutely love your style, its charming and unique. Very pretty dress and love the hat, too cute!

  17. Sara said:

    Really like the way you styled the dress with the boots and hat (and I’m on the hunt for the “perfect” hat for Autumn). I also love that wall! Pumpkin treats are some of my favorite things about this time of year.

  18. toni said:

    The color of your hat is really pretty!

  19. Jessie said:

    love the location u picked. nice hat, dear!

  20. That is such a cute dress and I just love the way that you have styled it. I kind of think the Berlin Wall thing is awesome, what an amazing thing to take photos in front of 🙂

    Also, in the UK we say autumn, but because I read too many blogs I’ve started accidentally saying fall and I get chuckled at 😦

  21. Can’t say I have much in the way of an autumn list, because I’m just about to go into summer – but I guess I’d better get cracking on making a summer list 😀

  36. I, too, am ready to kick autumn’s ass! I’ve been making a list of fall things to do for a while now, although it isn’t that huge because I’m worried I won’t have time to do it all. I’m definitely ready for tights and socks every single day. And pumpkin food for every meal!
