Quintessential fall

This is probably my favorite fall outfit. It's comfortable, cozy and simple. I want to wear it everyday, and I sort of have been.

These are also my favorite photos, because the autumn foliage is beautifully captured, and while the yellows, oranges and reds are quite beautiful, I still don't think they hold a candle to the pinks and whites of the trees blossoming with flowers in the spring.

Change is constant. It should be anyway, I can't be resistant to it, or afraid of it. I keep digging my heels in so deep I'm going to ruin my shoes. I need to change, to let go, and grow. If the old leaves didn't fall off during the autumn, the new ones couldn't grow in the spring.

  8. Loving that coat and fur collar! I tried on a coat recently with a fur collar and I felt so chic. Great choice!

  9. I love this time of year for the foliage as well. I am definitely rushing to make sure I can capture every bit of the leaves falling before it becomes boring, stark winter.

  10. I can understand why this outfit is your favourite one! It's casual yet chic, I really like the way you look! Those photographs are adorable!
    Wish you a blessed day ahead!


  11. Now there's positive thinking! Though I do agree--it is more beautiful to watch things growing and coming to life than it is to watch them dying. I looooooove your jacket and yes, these photos are just stunning. We've lucked out in our fall weather this season to which I am eternally grateful. It makes it so much more tolerable.

  12. Loving the color of those pants. Perfect for fall!

  13. That jacket is pretty awesome. Love the color and the fur collar!

  14. Oh those leaves! There aren't a lot of them changing yet in New York, although maybe I should get to Central Park and then report back on that again.

    I love this outfit. It's just so... fall-y.

  15. The colors of your outfit is seamless with the background and you look GREAT!

  16. Love love love that jacket! And it sounds like you're talking about more than just the leaves -- hope you can love to learn the changes in your life xo

  17. This look definitely makes a perfect fall uniform! The jacket is so fabulous can be either be dressed up or down and be super chic!

  19. The colours in this outfit are wonderful - and the yellow leaves are the perfect accent to them. It's this kind of put together but effortless style that I love best. And as for change, I think we all struggle with it to a degree, especially when changes don't seem to be particularly positive... but everything does happen for a reason and most changes come along to help us learn important lessons. Or at least that's what I tell myself when I wonder why, in spite of all of my efforts and wishes, I couldn't stay in Paris ;)

  20. Beautiful pictures and outfit. I adore the colors you used especially those green pants.


  21. I love the effect of adding the fur collar over your jacket! It looks so chic!

  26. Oh no for some reason the hosting from Flickr is not showing the picture anymore!!

    I did click on the link to the images, where I'm able to see your lovely outfit. I recently got a fur collar that I'm in total love with. It's gonna be my go to thing this winter!

  27. Oooh! I love these colors! The green pants are adorbs. :)



  28. Love this, especially the color of those pants! Totally digging jewel tones this fall.


  29. I was missing you, my always fabulous Lydia.

  30. Love your leather jacket and faux fur collar. And you're so right about fall. But just remember, spring will be here before you know it!

  31. I, too, am awful at change. Whether that be switching from one art project to the next or simply waking up a few minutes earlier, change is hard.

    These leaves are so so pretty, Lyddie! Of course they could never compare to your flower blossoms. That necklace is something fierce, and I love that jacket, too! *___* fashionable laaaady!

  32. I sooo suck at trying to let go. I am terrible at it.
    I can be sinking and still hang on....
    And i can totally see why your love the pictures, they are spectacular!!
    I am really digging your lariat necklace.
