dotty, a new hat, and looking incognito

octoberness [wearing]
coat: vince
jeans: joe's jeans
flats: old navy
bag: marc by marc jacobs
hat: lola hats

[three things]
1. Hat!  I've been looking for a felty gray hat and have come really close to buying a brown one at Target and a green one at Zara, but they weren't quite right.  And then the boy surprised my with this wonderfully oversized one for my birthday.

2. It's getting to that point where I don't want to take off my coat outside for more than about ten seconds.  #weakling

3. Spotted flats.

dotty, lightpoles, and museuming

dotty in LA [wearing]
dress: YAS via asos
sandals: gap
tote: madewell

[three things]
1. I heart museums.  I got an art history minor in undergrad pretty much because I like going to museums and am very good at matching paintings to painters.  Our trip to the Left Coast only involved two museums, but LACMA is pretty awesome.

2. Urban Light.

3. Palm trees.  Let's talk about how pretty they are.

dotty, star shoes, and tweedy jackets

fall outfits [wearing]
jacket: zara
top: vince
jeans: joe's jeans
shoes: justfab
bag: marc by marc jacobs

[three things]
1. These shoes have straps that look like stars.  I think that's the best thing ever AND they stay on my feet waaaay better than my other d'orsay flats.

2. Unintentional lens flare.

3. My wintery tweedy jacket is back in rotation.  So maybe it's time to pack up my sundresses, eh?
