Glory! It’s Autumn! My birthday usually “falls” on the first day of Fall. Sadly this year, it was the day after my birthday. Still, it’s Fall! The mornings are crisp and cool, the leaves are changing, and, of course, the style choices have increased! I’m going to ignore the fact that temperatures will be nearly 80F this week.

September 2014 149I’m sure I’ve mentioned my love of the company eShakti before. They make gorgeous clothes with custom fit and styling options at a reasonable price (keep an eye out for promotions and sales to get the best deal). This dress is a lovely summer dress that can transition to cooler temps with the addition of a jacket or cardigan. It’s got a whimsical hot air balloon print which I love. Did I mention that most eShakti dresses come with pockets? The true glory of a great dress.

September 2014 147You can customize eShakti garments to your own measurements as well as changing details such as length, type of sleeve, neckline and even removing pockets (why is that an option?!) for a minimal fee. I think I had this dress shortened.

I wore a jacket! I’ve had this jacket for years – lightweight cotton, three-quarter sleeves – a great transitional piece, and a fun retro vibe.

October 2014 015Another of my favorite places to get clothes from is ASOS. That’s where this dress came from. Again, it’s a lightweight summery dress that can transition well to a new season. I paired it with skinny capris and wedge sandals. A super comfortable, easy to wear outfit.

Outfit Details: Dress (Alice & You) – ASOS, Jeans – Torrid, Shoes – Payless Shoes, Jacket – Ross

Feeling thankful for cooler days, for fun clothes, for the freedom to express myself through fashion!
