Lose Your Clothes And Keep Your Thoughts

Last year when I moved out to Washington State after college I could not find my father's old maroon beret which he had given to me. When we moved to Virginia this summer I suddenly discovered the beret again...and seem to have lost my yellow knit cap from H&M. That seems to be the way of moves: one thing disappears and another reappears. Perhaps when I move next that cap will re-emerge and something else will mysteriously vanish.
It's finally beginning to feel like fall here in Virginia and just in time I received an awesome package of tights from Tabio. One of my favorite new pairs has to be this awesome thick grey pair; it's a 210 denier and so cozy for the cooler weather. I officially want a pair in every color. As much as I love fun and interesting tights, it's really great to have basics in neutrals for everyday wear.
P.S. This is the dress I featured in the remix post earlier this week; I told you it was a favorite!

  1. I normally don't like tights with open toed shoes, but I love this entire outfit SO much!

  2. Definitely cute outfit !
    I love the way these shoes look with grey tights !

  3. Oh that dress is so perfect! I can see why you like it so much :)
    And I love those tights/have been looking for good thick knit pairs for ages, so I may have to get some of my own!

  4. You inspire me to want to dress well! I always love your outfits, your style is amazing. Also, I love your hair. I miss the days when I had red hair.

  5. Definitely a great hat! I have one which I lose all the time: it will disappear for a year or more and then someone will bring it to me asking if it's mine. I have no idea where it is now... perhaps with my parents' move it will resurface. But I'm sure many many things will disappear...

  6. I love this! Perfect for fall :)


  7. I'm really loving this outfit. You skin and red lips look amazing with your hair in the hat.

    i wander, i wonder

  19. Wow Rebecca loved this pics! I especially liked the colour of the hat with your skin and your hair, you matched it perfectly with the rest of the clothes. :-)

  20. oooo! I love that beret! Well, I like the whole outfit but that beret brings it all together ;)

  21. I hate how the disappearance and reappearance of clothes seems to happen!
    The beret looks fantastic on you
    And those tights sound just perfect for the coming months

  22. This might be one of my favorite outfits I've seen you in! I really, really love your shoes. They are on my wishlist. Seychelles is awesome!

  23. omg rebecca you look like a doll in that last picture.

    i just had to say: i think my dad has the EXACT same maroon beret...or, if not, at least one that is very similar. he won't give it to me, though; he likes it too much :)

  24. I love everything about this outfit! Ps- I sent you an email about sponsoring/ads on your blog, hope to get a response soon.:)

  25. @Elle, was your father in the army? That's where my dad got his (they switched all the army berets to black now, but they used to have different colors for different divisions; ergo he no longer needs his old ones b/c they're the wrong color). :)
    @Anonymous, I usually respond to e-mails within 48 hours...if I haven't gotten back to you in that time I suggest writing again b/c it's probably gone missing (spam folder?). Sorry!

  26. this outfit is breathtaking. as are the surroundings!! so pretty. loving your blog.
    and the puppy above is too cute.

  29. very pretty. the beret matches your lipstick! love those grey tights

  30. I move a lot and one of my favorite things about packing/unpacking is rediscovering all of the amazing trinkets I've forgotten about.

    I'm glad you found this beret - I'm sure it holds a place in your heart and it looks adorable on you, to boot!

  33. OMG I love this outfit!! All of it!!!


  34. I split my time between my parents' house, my dorm, and my boyfriend's family's house, so I always feel like I'm losing track of things! I can't imagine actually moving house as much as you do. I love the beret, and I'm glad it turned up!

    That dress is so darling and it fits you perfectly :)
