Poncho and a floppy hat with flushed makeup

I have two knitted wool ponchos and I love how they look with slim fitting bottoms.  I'd like to try them with flares, but mine are too small at the moment.

This is my new floppy hat!  I purchased it several months ago and have been waiting till the weather cools down to wear it.  Finally, we are getting some cool weather!

I decided to try the Fall "flushed" trend with my floppy hat.  

I added a pop of bright pink blush (Bobbi Brown Bright Pale Pink) on top of my usual Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Exposed, as well as at my temples and hairline.

On my lips, I used Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Never Say Never, which is a bright lilac pink.  

For eye makeup, I used only a white shimmer in my tear duct, and lots of mascara, including my favorite Guerlain MaxiLash in black, and Younique's  Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes layered over the top.  In order to keep the look lower key I did not use my usual brow pencil.

Night Out - Fall's Colors

I found this fab top with all of Fall's trendy colors at Ann Taylor Loft while we were in Vegas.  I paired it with cuffed grey corduroy jeans (J. Crew matchstick), navy suede booties (Franco Sarto) and burgundy Smartwool socks.  I put my white leather jacket and grey long scarf over top, which was all I needed even at night because it was so warm out!  I switched into my navy Brahmin top-handle tote.  My lips are Savvy (purple) lipstain from Younique.

To Brunch

Headed to brunch in joggers!  It has been unseasonably warm in Seattle the past few weeks.  I'm ready to get out my coats and bundle up.  But, all I needed on Sunday was a cardigan over a short-sleeved tee.  In fact, I saw many of my neighbors out and about in sandals, tee shirts and shorts.

Monday - Bright Fall Day

You can see my wrinkles in this snap!  I've lined my waterline and worn a bright pink lipgloss in this look.  I'm wearing a black top, which I do not do very often, as I think it's too harsh for me.  But, it worked for the outfit (which I didn't get a snap of).

Pleated Bermuda Shorts and White Shoes

A mobile phone snap!  Wrapping up the last few warm days out here in Seattle...I'm pleased with this outfit.  I like the trendy look of these shorts but since I'm very round on bottom (and top, I guess, these days...) they can be difficult to feel sassy in.  I poured over Pintrest and came to the conclusion that I have to wear a shorter or tucked-in top.  I also pulled out my white pumps, which have not gotten as much love as I'd hoped when I purchased them a year or two ago.  It ended up being a little warm for the leather jacket in the office, but the outfit looked reasonable without it.  

The top is the Ryan muscle tee from Everlane. It's got a nice shoulder line that goes just a tad over the curve of my shoulder.  The only annoying thing is that the armholes are gapingly large, so that the top requires a tank worn beneath it.

Lavender and Grey - Sliding into the Summer's End

I've got some new skinny jeans!  I love this color of grey.  These will be great for tucking into tall boots this fall.  They are Halogen mid rise skinny jeans from Nordstorm.  Only available in limited sizes now.  I sized down and they're still too big in the waist!  If (when?) I lose weight this Fall I'll need to have the waist taken in quite a bit.  

For now, I'm wearing a fitted BP. camisole  un-tucked over the waistband, which helps keep them up.  These tanks are great in general (and cheap), but the elastic straps are a no-brainer for nursing.

The top is my lavender Vince linen sweater.  Slides are Louise et Cie in mirror silver finish.  I figured I better get my wear out of them, because the weather has a decidedly Fall nip in it this week!

My favorite new lipstick:  Bite Beauty frozen berries matte cream lipstick in Plum.  Sold out online, sadly.  I like that it's dark, but not blackish - I've tried near-black lipsticks and they just look terrible on me.  I'd make an awful Goth chic.
