Fire away

I was lucky enough to get home early from work the other day and actually catch some of the sunset before it was gone.

The days have truly gotten shorter, and the time for outfit photos after work is official over and we haven't even changed the clocks yet.

I'm still not going to wear tights until November. It's only a few more days at this point... I can't really explain why I'm being such a Fall hater this year (more than usual) but I'm having a tough time coming to terms with the change of season. Perhaps it is just a general reluctance to accept that this year is flying by and will soon be coming to an end. Don't freak out, but there are less than two months to Christmas.

  1. Your puppy is adorable!! I love sunset pictures. They always have such a refreshing glow. :)

  2. I'm loving the light in these photos!!! I'm still taking my pics after work, im far too tired to do it in the morning (except for my one that i do inside)
    Haha, I'm always a fall lover, so I couldnt wait to start wearing tights! Though I did try to wait as long as possible :p But I get cold easily

  3. I love this outfit but I cannot believe you're still wearing sandals! It's so cold!

  4. Love the sandals with this outfit - it definitely works with your "Hold-onto-summer" effort! And every time you wear that shirt I love it more and more.
    It was completely dark when I got home from work today. I couldn't help but silently cuss out the shortening days. And tights? The thought makes my stomach turn.

  5. Ahhh yeah I totally forgot about daylight saving... :( Your sunset light is really nice. And you basically look like you walked out of a Gap ad. Casual chic!

  6. It snowed nearly a foot for us in CO last night and I was totally rocking Christmas music today. :-D But it's also the only way that I can tolerate the nasty, wet, cold and nerve wracking, energy sucking snow.

    I love your chic look, this striped, sequined top is one of my faves on you! And Chloe. ;-)

  7. oh these sunset pictures are so pretty! and what a cute puppy. i love how you're still rocking the sandals! :)

    cute & little

  8. Damn, Christmas is seriously sneaking up! Love the striped shirt with the blazer.

  9. ooh, the light in these is so pretty. it seems like the days are becoming shorter earlier this year for some reason. i do love autumn, but that's one thing i always miss about summer! you look just as lovely as ever. xo.

  10. What a very cute outfit you have on today (and what a very cute dog you have!) :P I love the stripes on you and how it breaks your outfit up a bit. Quite casual but VERY chic ^_^


  11. haha! this post made me smile...Chloe is too cute! i love those sunnies so much...

  12. I'm actually WAITING for December but that it is 'cos it is our first wedding anniversary and my birthday and I get to go to India to visit my parents and in laws! :D

    Love the stripes, they look very stylish paired with the blazer :)

  13. beautifull pictures!!!

  14. Love your top. Saw a similar one at Banana Republic some weeks ago. Your dog is so precious!

    Superb Site! Please honor me with your presence by Joining my blog!


  15. Great pictures as always! :)
    The light is beautiful!

    I can'T wait for winter but the encroaching darkness makes me kinds melancholic... And it is difficult to find time to take pictures with good light!

  16. You look adorable in these photos, I like your style!

    Cosa mi metto???

  17. I love your sequined striped top...I must have missed that on at The Limited!

  18. I love your stripes! And how you've dressed up this outfit with the blazer. I may have to steal this idea soon.

    I wasn't freaking out but now I am...how can the end of the year be here so soon?!?!

  19. I love fall. I just hate the fact that winter comes next. At least you have the no tights rule!

  20. Chloe looks like a model in her photo! I was so excited for fall, until it really started to get cold. Now I just know that winter is just around the corner :(

    Either way, you look great in this outfit. It's a nice transitional look. Heather

  21. I am loving those pants - they look very relax and comfy.

  22. Love this fall look and seriously how cute is Chloe?

  26. Awww...I love fall. I wish everyone felt the same way, but I guess summer just has more to offer.

    I love how your holding onto to summer with your sandals, but embracing fall with your blazer. I really like the mixture.

    Your dog is so cute!! :)

  27. oomg that dog is adorable...and yes it's depressing to be coming home from work and realizing that the sun has gone down

  28. love this simple yet elegant look
    laughing at you not wearing tights until Nov.
    we all have our things
    my son won't wear jeans until he is sure it will stay cool and then he won't wear shorts again until he is sure it will stay warm

  29. whoa flip flops?! you are brave! When i first read your post titled i thought maybe you got fired...clearly that would never happen :)

  30. I hear its getting cooler by the minute.... I just hope its bearable when I visit.

  31. Sunset pictures are the est. I'll probably have to move my pictures inside soon, which is no fun.

  32. Chloe looks adorable, very sweet.
    Love your outfit most of all the sandals, really to die for.


  33. Lovely blazer!


  34. Gorgeous sunset pictures. And I love this outfit - that sequin stripe tee is fabulous.

    Also, your comment the other day on having a Heal-Thy life made me laugh so hard. I've actually gone back and read it a couple times just for the smile!

  35. Your bow flippers are adorable! ...and I can't get enough of your cute pup picks :)

    xo, tasha
