Hats Off To Fall

Hello Lovelies!!! I hinted at the possibility that some pictures might make their way to the blog (fingers crossed) and it happened! They might not be my best pictures but with an ensemble like this you just stand anywhere and it kinda works...lolz. This was my first time actually venturing onto the main part of campus to snap these photos. Usually I avoid going onto the main part of campus for fear people will pass by (which they did) and or cars drive by on the street, but I guess it is just part of being a blogger:) I can't help but laugh every time a car or person passes by wondering how those people must think me quite strange:)

If you remember from a few weeks back, I wrote a post talking about a few of my fall style obsessions and inspirations Here. Thankfully those styles and inspiration were finally brought forth in a real post that I bring to you today!!! As I said before, I am really into the whole "felt hat" trend that is going on right now, granted I don't wear the hat that frequently,but when I do I can't help loving how it looks:) 
Last weekend (well more of Monday, but I celebrated Sunday) was my birthday and my dear family + BFF made a trip up to see me, spend the day, and go shopping! Going shopping on or for my birthday has always been sort of a tradition for me so of course our excursions were splendidly wonderful! I had planned to buy a felt hat that day and found this beauty at Target. At first I was thinking of going with an oversized (or medium) felt fedora, but quickly realized a more classic felt hat would be more versatile.
Sweater: Thrifted (St. John's Bay)

It is finally getting chilly here in Texas so it was time to pull out all of my warm sweaters! Funny thing is that I have been slowly switching from my summer wardrobe to fall/winter wardrobe, bringing a few new sweaters or skirts back with me to school whenever I went home for the weekend. However, last weekend my mom brought me even more of my fall/winter wardrobe when my family came and I must say it is a good thing that I have my own room as an RA because now I have my own closet and it is AMAZING!!!! I seriously can't exaggerate enough how perfect it is:) 
The sweater I am wearing in this post was one I picked up while thrifting a few years ago, and while I don't wear it all that often it is quite warm and cozy. When you pair that with a plaid wool skirt (my grandmothers) and combat boots you get quite a fun and fall worthy ensemble. With the cool weather hopefully here to stay I am eagerly anticipating wearing more wool skirts and sweaters. 

That is all for now lovely readers, but I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving next week! Enjoy your turkey and stuffing yourself with all the tasty treats of the season:) 
I myself will definitely be enjoying time spent with family, flipping through all the shopping deals in the ad's and planning out our Friday schedule, going Black Friday shopping, and of course I can't forget about Hallmarks "Countdown To Christmas" movies!!!

Would you wear a felt hat like this?

Do you like wearing wool skirts and sweaters in the fall?

What are some of your Thanksgiving plans/traditions?

  3. I love the hat and the sweater together. I probably wouldn't wear that skirt, but that is my safe not very outgoing fashion sense. :) I would probably wear a more traditional plaid. www.sewcharacteristicallyyou.weebly.com

  8. Hats off to you for wearing such a wonderful outfit! I love wearing a hat every now and then and will ask for a felt hat for Christmas! And I plan on getting some more fuzzy sweaters and cute skirts!

    We are planning on going to a Christmas tree farm this week! And where do you go the school? It's possible that we live fairly close to one another!

    2. I can't wait for those photos! I'm planning on doing some pics at the tree farm too!

      We live a bit over two hours away. I live in Lake Charles, LA. But I go to Houston all of the time and McNeese, my college, plays Sam Houston sometimes I think... We should meet up sometime!!!

    3. OH wow! That is actually fairly close:) That is so cool that you are in Houston frequently and how crazy that your school might play mine!
      We should definitely meet up sometime!!! Don't know when, but maybe the next time you know you will be in the Houston area I can meet you somewhere?

  11. Deeply beautiful outfit. There is such a powerfully lovely, timeless quality to this look. I feel like it should be starring on the fall edition of a high end fashion magazine. Stellar styling, sweet dear!

  13. This is such a delightful, cozy ensemble Madison! And you bet I wear wool skirts and sweaters in the fall and winter. That mode of dress is slowly becoming my modus operandi for dressing in the colder months of the year.

    I hope you had a splendid Thanksgiving!
