Black and white and autumn


Autumn is in full force here in Portland, and I am loving it! Everywhere I go I see trees on fire with brilliantly colored leaves. Spring is a time of lovely awakening, summer is full of lazy beauty - but autumn is when the world really comes alive.

This outfit started with the boots. Whenever I get something new I wear it to death for a while, and since I just got these boots last week, you'll be seeing them a lot for the next few weeks. So I knew I wanted to wear the boots, and I also started eyeing my new (used, fake) leather jacket. Since both of those are edgier pieces, I decided to go with something more ladylike for the rest of the outfit to get some contrast, so I went with my houndstooth skirt and my favorite oversized button-up.






Jacket: Forever 21 brand, from Jen's closet sale
Shirt: free from my dad
Skirt: Anthropologie
Boots: Lulu's
Necklaces: Forever 21 and Dress Barn
Belt: came with a dress
Ring: Scan Fair
