Black & Yellow
Let’s get one thing straight: I am all about those fall vibes. It’s been summer for far too long, and even though it's still fairly warm here in Austin, it’s the first day of autumn. What better way to start off the new season than with an adorable fall-esque look?
Although our calendars show that it’s technically fall, it’s still very warm here in Austin. Silver lining—this seasonal weather conundrum has actually allowed me to utilize more of my closet.
For this outfit, I wore a golden-yellow top with a black skirt, black suede over-the-knee boots, black felt hat, and dainty black and gold accessories. These pieces individually are some of my favorites because each of these items can (for the most part) be worn during every season. When paired together, they make one stinkin’ cute late summer/early fall look.
I’m not the kind of person that completely dumps my wardrobe each year, or season, or whatever, just to keep up with the fashion trends. Yes, I will buy new pieces to add to my wardrobe to keep with the times—and to keep my look fresh—but mostly I buy pieces I know are going to last, that I really genuinely adore, and know that I will wear repeatedly. Yes, go ahead and call me an outfit repeater. So from this outfit, the only new-new item is my top. I find joy when I’m able to score items that I know will last through the years and will never go out of style, such as this black skirt. Now picture Usher signing "This is my confession..." I’ve had that skirt since college – gasp! But in reality, it’s a nice skirt that’s kept up with me and the style trends.
As for the long sleeve, golden-yellow top, that was one of those random internet finds. You know the kind that (based off your search history) is recommended to you by Google and the next thing you know you start seeing this top everywhere. Go to Facebook – and boom – there it is. Do a couple quick searches and open a page that's not related to clothing, yet there’s this top off to the side in an ad banner. Basically this top was internet stalking me, and you know what they say about shirts that stalk… actually there isn't a saying, so this sentence will end right here. Hahaha. Long story short, Google knows what’s up. So, shout out to Google for recommending this super cute top, because I’ve been in love with it ever since.
Have you ever had something recommended to you by Google, and you ended up purchasing it and loving it – or even hating it? I would love to hear your experience with Google recommendations in the comments on IG.
