{Overtly Autumn styling}


I am undoubtedly excited that fall fashion has been including some unexpected
colors this season, however I have to admit that I will always crave the more
overtly "autumn" styling as well. I can't help but love the rust colored pumps &
moody polka dotted black on black pencil skirt paired with a slate blousy top. 
I like the cheeky qualities of the tightly fitted Nordic sweater and the pumpkin
and gingham combination. They are unabashedly fall: one being a cliche of prep
autumn & winter wear, the other the typical color scheme of Halloween. Also
important, is the billowy back to school look...a mustard "grandpa" cardigan
accompanied by powder blue pleats. These garments are all classics for a 
reason. They recall certain memories, that I think for most are pleasant:

{new school supplies, a plastic orange pumpkin, stormy nights, & harvest festivals)
They are nostalgic in a way that isn't too kitsch and is therefore
sublimely chic. 

Thoughts?
