Fall Trends: Brights

Sweater - Jones Wear, thrifted
Skirt - thrifted
Boots - Fluevog, ebay

While this outfit would have been perfect for yesterday's stripes, it was the only thing I could realllly work out to wear for Brights Day. I almost didn't wear this either, because it was 40 degrees this morning! Brr. I decided to suck it up and give these cotton lined wool tights a try. I spent two years trying to convince myself they'd make a difference for wearing skirts in cold weather, and actually they work pretty well. I still need to see how they wash first, but initially they seem like a good investment.

I think my fringe is getting too long to wear straight down. I need to decide if I want them short or if I want to try and grow them out. Any thoughts? I'm probably going for a trim in November.

EDITED TO ADD: Do not forget to send pictures for the Fall Trends Round up to Keely before this Sunday!


  1. Oh wow, this is great! The green and the berry skirt look great together. I would have never thought to pair these two colors together.

    Bangs are tricky. Do you like the sideswept look? When I was growing out my bangs I did a lot of headbands and bobby pins.

  2. What a great bright fall outfit! I had to skip the challenge today (boo!) because I was having a closet meltdown and couldn't hunt down any brights this morning. I love your skirt! I have had the same thoughts about wool tights, but once it gets even a bit chilly, I think "um, nope. These are not going to do." LOL Have a great weekend!

  3. Stripes again :) Love that fuscia colour!

  4. I think you look really beautiful with bangs and not many people can pull them off so I would keep them! I love this bright outfit- the pink and green work really well together and I've had to bust out the tights today as well- brr it's gettin chilly!

  5. I totally just got the Dis or Dat reference... we downloaded the game as an app on Scott's iPad tonight! I got so distracted over recognizing it from the challenge that I screwed up that round!
    Pink and green, eh? Normally I'd avoid it, but this works!

  6. i love how you mixed these colours together.. they work out so well!!


  7. I love this outfit! Such a bright and unusual color combination.

  8. 40 degress??? Brrr is right. :( I like the green/pink combo. I don't wear skirts when it gets too cold, but I'm hoping I can wear them this winter because SF doesn't get very cold.

    I haven't had bangs since 5th grade, so I don't have any advice. I'm in the process of growing my hair long again because I miss wearing braids.

  9. The bright top is very cute! The bright green would really pop under a black blazer.

    As for bangs, you can go to A Pretty Penny and search for her bang trim tutorial. Or to avoid the overgrown, when you get a trim have them do the side sweep bang. They are much easier to maintain.

  10. Ooh I love this outfit - green and pink look so good together :)

  11. I love these colours together!


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
