It seems like every year, the first day of fall is still hot and the first day of spring is still cold. Makes it hard to get excited about the change of seasons. So you can imagine my excitement yesterday when I opened the door to my balcony to find sunshine and a chill in the air!
I said “screw you” to grocery shopping and homework (OK, fine, I did both those things later in the day) and went downtown to enjoy the beautiful first day of fall with my other half. And because the first day of fall actually felt like fall, I went “fall out!” (get it? like all out? but fall? lame? OK.) New sweater! New felt hat! New dark lipstick! All these things have been waiting anxiously for their debut.
They got pretty much the best debut possible. The Sunday Funday rundown: a Starbucks run (for a pumpkin spice latte, of course), a long walk along the canal where we actually stopped to look at some of the memorials, and a scrumptious cajun dinner during which we tried to decide who looked better in my hat. I didn’t win, but it’s my hat and my blog and I get to wear it. So there.

Everywhere compensated me for covering this Macy’s event, but all thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own!
So you know how all the big time bloggers spent last week at runway shows for New York Fashion Week? Well, I spent last week in class learning stuff about law and then spent Saturday afternoon at a runway show down the street at Macy’s. I mean I’m sure NYFW is awesome, but I’m not exactly mad that my blogger perks are way more convenient.
The show was all about the 5 Fall Essentials according to the fabulous Danielle (who ties with me for best dressed in Indianapolis…you heard it here first). Here are the 5 trends along with pics of my favorite looks from each.

And there you have it! Pretty cute outfits, right? Couldn’t have styled it better myself. Below are just a couple other shots of some things I liked from the show (clockwise from top left): a trench coat over bold stripes and accessories; a red dress with tan pumps; a fun mix of patterns and textures; and a sweater with wolves making out.
Who else is psyched for fall fashion now?! YAY!
