Fall Incarnate

Do I look like Fall incarnate? Whenever I wear this headband I feel like some Charles's Dickens character, the "ghost of falls' past," if you would. Of course, lacking the ability to lead someone to a great personal awakening. Still, it's fun to channel something so whimsical, as if I could be some seasonal sprite emerging and celebrating autumn in its glory. There's a chill in the air, but the leaves aren't changing fast enough yet. What good is the cold air and short days without the special alchemy of changing trees?

You look like a little Greek wood nymph. You're a perfect subject for a John William Waterhouse painting.

You have such beautiful clothes! I absolutely love the outfits you've put together. I am in the process of trying to learn how to make girls clothes for my daughters, and I have been looking for inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Rebecca,

Love the outfit, very cute! One question I thought it was always best to avoid wearing the same coloured shoes with tights. I think your saddle shoes would have been a better choice or a moccasin.

@Anonymous, thanks for your input, but it's really a matter of opinion. What I was doing was intentional--monochromatic legs if you will. I will do this often this fall and winter (since I do it often every fall). It makes for a more stream-lined look and gives the illusion of longer legs. If you want contrast, then that's fine, but I don't think it would be "better." That's subjective.

I think the tights are sooooo perfect.......perfect dress too ...... I grew up in ballet (I'm a guy) and I always wore big sweaters with tights under. I'm traveling in Europe this fall, and I adore the style of tights with cut off denim shorts, and leather shorts, and cute high waisted shorts. .My friends in Europe know I'm bold and brash and have encouraged me to don cute tights on my legs and wear that look (tights and shorts....I've even begun to wear thin sheer tights as well...
I love your hair by the way... and your smile . You have a great style and you "wear it well"
