Distant memory

Was this really last week? Presently temperatures are barely hovering above freezing, yet, for a couple blissful days last week it was mid 60s, sunny and amazing. Like the kind of fall weather that could make you love fall. Much unlike when its 22° in the sun and I don't even bother leaving my house all day, I wanted to be out enjoying the weather. I walked the dog, I walked to the post office (in my heels no less) I took my time taking my photos... it was lovely, but now it feels like some distant memory, and not a week ago.

Taking advantage of any bare-leg opportunity I can get, I put together a look which was actually inspired by this outfit I spotted in the Victoria's Secret catalog, however my favorite part of the look is my new Linea Pelle Astor messenger bag, generously gifted to my by Linger Rose.

  1. Love pairing simple tees with statement necklaces, you look gorgeous.


  2. You brave woman! But yes, the 60's are a distant memory for us. It has been bearable--in the mid-40's--but nowhere near bear leggedness. I love your striped skirt with this tee!

  3. I love how you dressed up that cute graphic tee! These last few days have been so cold that I'm wondering if I can teach my dogs how to use the toilet :)

  4. Beautiful bag, girl!

    Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  5. It's freezing, windy and raining here in DC!!! Ugh This photo looks like it was taken in mid-summer! :)
    Love the graphic tee and super cute bag.

  6. What a beautiful bag and I also adore your tee:) Adorable! Kisses

  7. We're under half a foot of snow here and it was minus 17 last week - it's amazing to me right now to see photos of people in fall weather with bare legs. Also, this is a really cute outfit - I love the shirt and jacket combo!

  8. Love the t-shirt with this look. You always have the best jewelry too. Very nice!


  9. Love all, very nice your outfit.

    Thanks for your comment.
    Very soon.

  10. You gave a tee a sophisticated look and you wear it well! Great new handbag.

  11. Great inspired by look -
    I guess you can use that time indoors to do winter clean out ;)

  12. Majorly swooning over that bag! I miss the warmer days...how many days until spring?

  13. Yes I love your bag!! I need it :)

  14. It's hard to believe that just last week it would have been warm enough to be bare legged! You look great... loving your new bag!

  15. I love that t-shirt of yours more every time I see it - it's such a perfect graphic tee, simple and elegant while still being casual. And you styled it beautifully for a sunny fall day. It really does feel like a miracle when the sun comes out and the temperatures rise in November. We've been having a week of blissful, albeit it not terribly warm, sunny weather and I can't get enough!

  16. I love that bag! And yes, I think the cold has definitely come to stay...no fun!

  17. Seems so long ago when it wasn't freezing...yet it was just really a week ago. We've been really lucky lately but then we never know what we'll get here in Ct, right?! I think your outfit is definitely better than the VS outfit..and I love that bag!

  18. Great look!! Casual and chic!


  19. Isn't it SO nice when the weather is warm enough to go with bare legs?! I feel like those days are getting farther and farther away from us. :( Oh well. I'll just have to schedule a vacation when it gets super unbearable, hehe. LOVE this outfit, girl! Lookin' fab as always! :)



  20. I know, it's gotten so freezing so quickly... I don't know what happened. I need... gloves?

    I kind of wish it would at least snow. Then I wouldn't feel so bad about the cold.

  21. Such a pretty bag! Loved your take on the VS look, you totally made it your own!

    Cee. ♥

  22. It's crazy how quickly the whether can change! I love the necklace you're wearing! Very cute look!

  23. It's good you had the chance to enjoy the relatively warm weather while it lasted. Love your tee and accessories!

  24. You're perfect
    Love your tee and your bag

  25. That handbag is gorgeous! Love how you styled your graphic tee. My closet desperately needs one!

  26. Love this look, you're lucky to live somewhere where it's still that warm!

    Hmm maybe...

  27. oh gosh, i wish it were that kind of weather right now!

  28. That is such a nice casual outfit! I like the tee with the striped skirt :)

  29. I love the t-shirt with the striped pencil skirt! So cute.

  30. The bag is stunning! What a lovely gift from the company!
