Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Welcoming Fall

This is the coziest outfit ever!!!  I prettymuch love everything about it, too:

1.) the hat: I love this hat, but I don't get much opportunity to wear it because of its unique style.  I know what you're thinking: 'Caitlin. It's just a tan hat; how much more basic can you get?'  But, dear readers, I implore you to take a closer look!  It's a little bit fedora, a little bit sunhat, a little bit hoity-toity, and a little bit cowboy all at the same time.  That's just exhausting.
2.) the scarf: This is my actual favorite (warm) scarf.  It's my favorite colors and pattern (floral!).  And it's super-cozy wool that somehow manages to not be itchy (a minor miracle).
3.) the sweater: I finally get to wear green!!!  I know, this may sound silly, but wearing green turns my eyes green (I have what I call "changeling" eyes: they change color with my clothes or mood), which is my favorite color for them to be.  Unfortunately, I have--not brown, not yellow, not pink, not any NORMAL undertone to my skin--but a green undertone.  This makes wearing green challenging, but the tone of this sweater is a-OK.
4.) the boots: I adore my combat boots.  That is all.

Makin' a funny face, but I wanted to debut my new [thrifted] fur coat in all its glorious luxury!
My mommy was nice enough to snap these photos with my phone outside of a Restaurant which Shall Not be Named.  *coughcough shiftyeyes*

Is everybody else excited for Fall?  
The colors are changing around here already, and I keep catching myself driving like a grandma on country roads just so I can gape.

THANKS, as always, for reading!

  1. New reader here. I love that I have a fellow eye changer. People have always assumed I'm lying when I say my eyes change, but now I have proof. :)

    1. Cool!! Nice to meet a fellow changeling!! :)

  2. Hey! Love the outfit - pretty normal, at first, but then you've got the demin shorties over the leggings, which is very you. Showing off those crazy legs :) Love it.
    Also, green skin? Are you out of your vulcan mind? lol Idk if you've ever watched Star Trek TOS, but I assume you'd share my love of McCoy. You should watch some, at least. I only made it through 2 seasons, myself.
    Wait, we were talking about clothes, weren't we?
    Also, I have a GORGEOUS drive into work every day (Waukesha into Milwaukee) - so many trees, and this is a good fall for colors.

    1. I DO have green skin!! Really!!! And of course I've watched Star Trek (and love McCoy [he's not a food, so we can both like him]). Just because I'm into fashion doesn't mean I've lost my[nerd]self lol...just you wait: I've got a future post coming up involving my Transformers hoodie. ;)

  3. I adore hats <3 You look great :) I'm following you now :)

  4. You look adorable in a hat!!! And don't even get me started on how much I LOVE your fun fur!

  5. I love the white jacket. The hat is something that is hard to pull off but you nailed it on this look.

  10. love this look of autumn :)

  11. I completely see what you mean about that hat. It embodies elements of many styles, which (like dresses that do the same thing, in my experience) can make it tricky to pull off. No fear of that here though, both you and it look wonderful!
