I’m so excited that it’s October! This means it’s officially okay for me to consume pumpkin spice everything, as well as decorate with pumpkins everywhere, and basically turn myself into a pumpkin… but like, the cute kinda pumpkin.
I know, I know, the first day of fall was technically September 22nd, and trust me I woke up that morning doing my happy dance, but it hasn’t really felt like fall until now. I've previously been living those wanna-be-fall vibes. Now I’m doing my happy dance more than twice a day because it is fall and, most importantly, it feels like fall.
So now that I have my autumn, pumpkin, and October obsession out of the way on with my look.
Now, I feel like you need to know that I have been so excited to share this outfit and these pictures with you. This was such a fun look. I felt like a confident boss lady strutting around in this outfit. Well... tbh, I probably looked more like a bashful, giggly child on the outside, but I felt like a boss on the inside - and it's what's on the inside that matters, right? ANYWAYS. This outfit is perfect for a day at the office, or for a casual day out and about.
I don’t normally consider myself a skirt kinda girl. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that I went to a private high school and had to wear a skirt every day. Think Catholic school uniform skirt, but not like the sexy Halloween send-me-to-detention kinda skirt, think more Rory Gilmore going to Chilton skirt kinda skirt. Not to mention, I love pockets, which is why I unintentionally gravitate towards wearing jeans or shorts on the reg. However, this skirt has yet to let me down. True, this skirt is missing the pocket-factor, but excluding that minor detail, it's made with the most comfortable fabric. And you know me, I love anything comfy. When you think of iconic pairs, such as: peanut butter and jelly, socks and shoes, nuts and bolts, needle and thread, you can always add Haleigh Belle and comfy things to that list. Me and comfy are basically and iconic pair. And I will gladly give up my need for a pocket any day, as long as whatever article of clothing I’m wearing is comfy AF.
Crop tops. When you think of a crop top, I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind isn’t work attire, but let this top persuade you otherwise. When paired with a high waisted skirt or pant, this top is perfect. It’s incredibly flattering and has the cutest wrap around tie that accentuates your waist and curves. Please also take note of the utterly adorable sleeve detail. And since I'm clearly high key obsessed with any and all sleeve details, I will just leave it at that. However, if you want to read more about my sleeve obsession please read my blog post here. Because this top is straight fire, I didn’t want to take away from that by over accessorizing, so I paired this outfit with my simple black drop earrings.
