Happy first day of Fall! I took these photos last Friday so this is the last of my summer outfits, though it looks like I've already successfully transitioned into Fall since I haven't left the house without tights on since I got back from New York. I really have no idea what this season will bring, but I'm excited for it! To me, Fall is more like a new year because it's the start of a new school year. I'm such a nerd for thinking like that huh?
I had a crazy weekend. My brother moved out and into his dorm on Sunday morning, so Saturday, my family spent the day together. We went to the mall for lunch and some shopping. I bought myself a skirt that was on sale at Gap. I've already worn it twice so you'll see it really soon. The Saks Fifth Avenue in that mall also happened to be closing so everything is on sale for 30-50% off. My mom wanted to show me a wallet, but I didn't like the ones she picked out so naturally my eyes wandered to the handbags section. I saw a gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and instantly fell in love. I was torn between black and cream, but eventually decided on the black since it's timeless and it wouldn't get dirty as easily or quickly. You'll see the bag soon too.
On Sunday morning, we made the morning trek to my brother's university which is about an hour away with no traffic. We helped him settle in and met his roommate. His roommate's mother thought I was the younger sibling (still in high school) and was shocked when I told her that I just gradated from college. I was a little annoyed the rest of the day that I don't look my age and even contemplated to stop wearing bows because I'm pretty sure they only add to the appearance of my youth. We then grabbed lunch and said our goodbyes. I guess my mom was feeling a bit empty afterwards, because somehow we ended up back at the same mall and somehow left with the cream version of the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag (and I found my winter cardigan on sale at Gap too). Later that night, my brother calls to say that he's sick and about to throw up. So I made the drive up to bring him medicine and a few things he forgot to pack; however, when I got there, he was totally fine. By the time I got home after midnight, I was exhausted from all the driving I did (over 200 miles...).
Until next post,
I know this outfit is so similar to the one I wore in New York, but who says we can't repeat ideas? I know we all do, but for some reason, we are all afraid to repeat similar or even the same outfits on our blogs. I think I'm going to start doing it though just because it's definitely more realistic and it won't stress me out as much. I have enough on my plate as it is anyway, as I'm sure we all do. That outfit even landed me on the front page of Chictopia, so why fix what isn't broken?
