My debut for the new khaki pants was meant to be with something else, but things fell apart rather quickly when something I thought was clean was not to be found in the closet. Which is why even if you decide what you are going to wear the night before, it's still important to actually retrieve the items and have them at the ready.

But enough about the 'disappointment', when I have yesterday's outfit to talk about. As it was decidedly chilly and a bit rainy I had to make some kind of peace with pseudo-Fall and pulled out my favorite fall coat.
Navy, military inspired, and made of sweatshirt material, so it's wearable window is very small. With it, out came the red purse. Cranberry and Navy just feel right, and much as I love the tan cross-body bag, I've been schlepping it all spring and summer; the other bags were beginning to get jealous.
While digging through layers of cardigans tucked away in drawers, I happened upon the olive shirt, clearly out of place and begging to be among the other rich fall colors.
I wasn't going to put on tights. It's far too soon for tights. While I must confess, I adore every J. Crew model who rocks this look, I wonder about it on myself.
I was even feeling like going for a walk, and decided to use the old factory as my backdrop. I was really hoping I wouldn't encounter any pedestrians, but of course I did. I spied their approach and quickly crouched by the camera and peered through the view finder, fired off a few shots for good measure and hoped they would just keep walking.
But I was forced into having a conversion:
"Are you a photographer?"
"Do you work for the newspaper?"
no, just a hobby.
"What are you photographing?"
the old factory.
"For the newspaper?"
There was no way I was going to say I was a fashion blogger. (The explanation would be far too lengthy). But I suppose it's hard for someone to wrap their brain around the idea that some girl in a skirt and ballet flats is wandering around with a tripod photographing old buildings.
