outfit post: Cinnamon Girl

Sweet & Spicy: Bella gets into the Fall ready hues of cream, tans, and cinnamon.
People I am soooo ready for Fall. Perhaps it shows by my recent craving to wear all sorts of shades of browns, tans and creams. All of a sudden my love of pop colors (bright reds, cobalts and white/navy) have taken a back seat to a more demure color scheme. I think this happens to me every August, but each time it feels like I am falling in love with Autumn for the first time. So, here's to a late summer blaze of skin paired with subtle shades of creams, caramels and cinnamon.
Falling for Fall. Hurry Up!



Grey Matters: Pale Grey with Cinnamon browns and cream just scream Fall to me.
Now Wearing: 
  • Mui-Mui sunglasses
  • thrifted grey denim jacket w/ bell sleeves, Thrift Town
  • cotton paisley print cotton sundress with bubble hem, freebie pile
  • awesome Nepalese textile shoulder bag, Krazy Mary's
  • plastic tortoise-shell cuff 
  • MIA tan leather/rope espadrille wedges,  online
Ann of Annimal House texted me the photo below. She saw it when she was shopping the jumble sale at the Verge Center for the Arts.  Apparently my one of my Moo Blogger cards inspired someone to make a sign out of it- a directive for the folks of the Verge to not set off the alarm. Since I'm quite a bossy-mossy in real life, I think it's funny that my image helps boss around artistic sorts in an art space.

I'm finding myself REALLY loving all the Fall looks and colors too! The only thing I dread about Fall is that Winter is close behind!

Loving your dress and bag Bella dear! I usually dread the end of Summer, but it has been SO hot here in Texas, that I can't wait for cooler weather and warmer clothes!

You look stunning! I love the bell sleeves on this denim jacket! It's been a while since I saw one of those! Were I to be so lucky to thrift something this adorable! I'm ready for fall as well. Bring on the fall coats, scarves, and earth colors!

I am so with your, Bella...I am completely ready for a seasonal change..summer has been brutal and I so wish it would go away! Transitioning this way is the way to go...bring in those colors in a summery look! I love the name CINNAMON for a color! CINNAMON, SAFFRON, and SAGE ARE 3 of my fall favorites.

I love the picture of you with the jacket. Your outfit looks great. I too would long for some cooler weather, but it will be a long time coming since I'm living in Singapore....

I think I'm ready for a small dose of fall too. At least knock 10 degrees off the thermometer and I'll be happy. The small print dress is great on you and the cinnamon is great. You always find the best things.

Easy to say you are ready for Fall when you live in California! I am Not ready. Fall means snow! Thanks for the Neil Youngs. I love him :)

Bonnie said...

As soon as August hits, I'm like, "Okay, where's the fall weather?" I don't know what it is!! Maybe it's because the Fall semester begins in August ...
Or I'm just crazy and sick of the hot-ass weather.

This dress looks great on you, and I'm digging the little jacket. I can't wait for fall. I'm miss all my sweaters, and jackets.
