improvising

Until a few days again fall wasn't really fall for me. It was more of a stretched out Indian summer. But of course I was determined to wear my season appropriate basics. So regardless of the pictorial oxymoron shown below it made me giddy to frolic around my living room, and later Target wearing flannel, over the knee wooly socks, and my favorite/only, extremely versatile faux fur stole. If only for the fact that these items were paired with cutoff denim shorts, I might have felt completely normal. I think these shorts have been getting more action these past few weeks, than any other time this year. I'm a bit obsessed with them.

{Newport News flannel shirt, Target: jacket & OTK socks, Fox shorts, Franco Sarto boots, fur stole detached from another jacket}

  5. lovely legs! i wish i could find some shorts- it seems like all the stores in my area just dont carry right now, which is silly because girls wear them year around, especially in europe. just throw some tights underneath if its too chilly out and you are good to go! cute cute outfit! hope you're having a great weekend! <3

  12. I love this look and have totally worn it out and about. Didn't get any weird looks though (but now that I think of it I usually get looks wherever I go, so maybe I'm immune to it now!!)

    Thanks for you comment! Want to follow each other??
