OOTD :: of opting out of Halloween




So the Blogging Besties pass-on items for the week were as follows: scarf, colored tee, black pants, boots, and leopard print. Clearly, I chose to pass-on the scarf and boots, but honestly, even without the linkup, I still would’ve concocted this outfit because I’m all about fall and I’m dying to break out my cold-weather gear already.

And even though it was a sweltering 85ºF when I took this pictures, I’m still smiling. It’s my version of a rain dance, if you will. Or wishful thinking. Anything to make the weather decide to turn in my favor.

Now had I chosen to dress up for Halloween, I think this would have been the year for my geisha outfit (I have four costumes I rotate through so the kids don’t see me repeat; I know, I’m anal), so maybe it’s a good thing I opted out. That ensemble just has too many layers and would have been way too hot for today.

So instead, you sport an infinity scarf, snuggly cardi and boots?

Yeah. I never said common sense was my forté. Besides, I had to wear my most marigold-y dress (I do believe that print is as reminiscent to the flower as I’ve gotten this week) to round out the week’s theme.

Vive le vendredi et vive le halloween!

  1. I love this! The dress looks great on you….I think I would probably look like a small tank. It’s 39 degrees here so you could totally get away with the cardi, boots and scarf…and thermal underwear and a blanket.

    Love, love, love this outfit!

  3. Ohh, this is a PERFECT fall outfit! And I’m with you, once October hits, I refuse to dress for 80 degree weather. It’s time for scarves and boots! Thanks for linking-up!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
