bustin out the tights






It got chilly enough to wear tights this week and I was in the mood to center my outfit around black and brown. Normally I get super pumped for tights and boots weather- but I've been savouring the days I can still go bare legged and get away with sandals. Last winter was so brutal and lasted for so long- I think I'm really anxious about going through another long cold season, and I'm in no rush.

I am getting really excited to for Halloween though. It's my favourite holiday, and I hold a pretty strict policy about not decorating or anything until October starts, but it's just about to hit and I'm starting to feel really pumped. I'm ready to fill my apartment to the brim with cobwebs, candy corn, pumpkin pasties, and butterbeer. this year, instead of decorating with just traditional spookiness, I'm thinking about just trying to make everything look as Howartsish as possible. I love getting really into Harry Potter around Halloween.

  1. You look so cute! I love the mustardy brown skirt, especially. And the picture of you jumping; how are you such a graceful jumper?
    I really want to decorate for fall, but I'm going to have to DIY a lot of stuff because I can't buy anything right now. Oh well! It'll make me be more productive. :) I hope you have lots of fun making your house look as Hogwarts as possible! It sounds so fun!

  2. I hope you post pictures of your enchanted home then! I think I'll wear tights tomorrow, I heard its gonna be brisk, baby!

  4. Halloween is a good time to get all Hogwartsy! I like the idea of decorating with that stuff instead of the traditional Halloween stuff. Halloween is so much fun and this is really the best time of year. It's just perfect. October is my favorite month and I also wait until October starts to really start celebrating. I won't watch Hocus Pocus until it's October and once Halloween is over, I won't watch it again until next year! I love it so much, but it's just not the same if you watch it in the summer or something. ALSO...I LOVE pairing brown and black and hooray for tights and boots season! :D

  5. I am LOVING this look. You are totally rocking it! I'm so happy it's tights weather :)

  6. I quite like the simplicity of this outfit- something very fallish about that- and those shoes are my favorite part.

  7. I'm so excited for Halloween! And Harry Potter is awesome :p I love warm weather too...but I do really love tights.

  8. Hooray for wearing tights! I can't wait to see your lovely October outfit posts.
