Green with

It may sound silly to say, but right now I'm feeling envious of the people on the other side of the world where spring is just beginning, rather than fall. It's not just that their days are getting longer and warmer, as opposed to shorter and colder, it's that hopeful feeling that comes with spring, that idea of infinite potential.

I just want to feel that right now. I want to feel like I can do anything.

  1. You look beautiful as always, and in that outfit, you look like you could do anything! For me, fall is so full of possibilities as everything is picking up, so it's always been my favorite season.

  2. Love this color combination, super cute! The puppy...adorable!

  3. I love the detailing on the pockets of this skirt!

    I so wish it was the beginning of spring instead of fall too.

  5. You have great potential and you can do it all. . . Nice outfit on you!

  6. I love that blouse! :D
    And psh, Fall is the best! Chilly weather, sweaters, hot chocolate and the promise of Thanksgiving and Christmas! :D
    I guess it's because I'm a Fall baby and you're a Spring one ;)

  7. Great blouse, green is one of my favorite colors ever =)

  8. You can still do anything - you might just have to wear a jacket because fall's coming. I suggest a green jacket because that color is perfect on you!

  9. Totally! It's not fall that I mind . . . but the impending doom that is winter and cold and slush. Gross. I love the green and khaki!

  10. What a beautiful shade of green and the pairing is perfect:) Happy day, sweetie.

  11. Maybe it's just the academic in me, or maybe it's because my birthday is in the fall, but for me, autumn has always been a season of new beginnings filled with infinite possibilities... but I can see how spring could feel that way, too. On a fashion-related note, I don't think your bag and skirt could be anymore perfect together. They look like they were meant to be a pair!

  12. I too wish the days were getting longer instead of shorter!

  13. I personally am a fall person so I'm so excited about it at the moment. But I'm sure that once that winter hits I'll be craving spring just like you! Emerald is a pretty colour on you, and that skirt is perfect on you dear!

  14. Even though I prefer longer days and warmer weather, I actually feel pretty good about fall. I'm looking forward to Halloween, turkey day and the winter holidays.

    Anyway, your photos are always so crisp and so are your outfits.

  15. Oh, what can I say.... sometimes i am envious because you get to wear fall clothes.
    You look lovely in this green top, but your skirt is my favorite.
    Chloe has been out more ! bet she's happy.

  16. I can understand that feeling of spring and the fresh start it brings. I love fall but hate winter and the cold. Plus Christmas season stresses me out! You look really lovely in green though :)

  17. I love how you added the hat to your cute!

  18. That color green is so pretty on you, and I love it with that camel skirt!

  19. I love the Emerald Blouse paired with the Tan Pencil Skirt. The Panama Hat makes it more fun.

  20. Love the emerald green, me personally I am a Fall/Winter person I just love cozy weather.

  27. that shade of green is absolutly gorgeous on you!

  28. I love, love autumn, but here it is so warm that it could well be summer somewhere else.
    Love your skirt, and the magnificent photos Lydia.

  29. Ah, the lighting in these photos is just beautiful, Lyddie! That's one thing I envy about your photographs: the stunning ways you're able to capture the light. So so gorgeous!

    I love that green on you. An your hat is perfect!

  30. I love the way that the green plays off the neutral color in the skirt!

    I know what you mean about the 'newness' of Spring. It does give you a feeling of being able to do anything. Fall always seems to make me feel like slowing down.

  31. Great outfit. Love it from head to toe!!!!!

    Visiting from Tara's link up. I'm hosting a link today, tres-chic fashion thursday and would love it if you joined.


  32. It's not silly to wish it was spring! Although honestly I always feel like I can get more done when fall starts-- half the time I don't think anyone works during the summer and communications are so slow.

    This blouse is really nice and looks good with a neutrals! So.. yeah. I want to steal it.
