In Autumn's Jungle

______Today's temperature peaked at an astonishingly humid 84 degrees.  Being the end of October and all, it wouldn't make sense for it to be like, nice and cool or anything, right?  Right.  Even though it was so warm, I decided to say, "I ignore thine silly boundaries which thou hast lain for me, O weather," and wear black tights.  And so I did.  And I kind of died.

______At least I looked cute buying groceries.  But not as cute as the old ladies who were wearing matching pumpkin sweaters and carefully picking out the perfect ratios of Halloween candy.  They were really super cute, and totally won the grocery store cutie contest (that's a real thing, you know).

______One day I'll be as cute as those old ladies.  One day.  Just not today.

Super cute!! I love the dress and necklace. The weather is being weird where I live too! I wish it would just feel like fall and stop faking me out. haha

Way to rebel against the weather Ali, I must applaud your courage!
Also, thanks again for your comment - you're so encouraging! :)
It sucks being studious...aha, I mean, most people would be more relaxed and laid back, but I just...I don't know, ever since I was younger I'd care about getting good grades. Not to be racist, but it must be the half Asian in me...haha!

Love the dress!! It's one of my favorite silhouettes. :) I love all the accessories, and it's so cool that you studded the shoes yourself! I've always wanted to do diys but never seemed to get around to them. Haha about the tights! I'm dying to break out mine to wear, but I really wouldn't be able handle tights in the still warm weather!

Matching pumpkin outfits? For real? That needs to happen.

Also I love those little boots. They add the perfect amount of edge to this dress.
