A redhead in red

Is it me or is this a bad fall foliage-wise? I was fully prepared to get snappy happy when the colours would burst, but no such thing ever happened. It seems like the leaves went from fresh and green to dead and dry in just one night. Almost all the trees are bare now, and my (unprofessional) photography heart is bleeding. Oh well. The sidewalks are covered in crunchy brown leaves and I can’t help but kick them up everytime I walk through them. Or throw them up and spread them all over the placew which then gives me an excuse to get out the leafblower. That machine is so awesome! The perfect tool to get our dogs to go crazy, haha. And to get dirty. I was covered in dust and sand, but I had so much fun. Fall is the season where I realise I don’t actually want to grow up yet. 
My 100th outfitpost!! This dress kind of matches the fallen leaves. I bought it in London two years ago, eventhough it was ridicilously expensive for a young student. I splurged even more, and got the matching cardigan too… .  Boy, do I love this outfit! This dress is one of the most worn items in my closet. It’s hard to remix, but I don’t really mind in this case. The pretty red and greenisch pattern, the full skirt, the puffy sleevs… I call it my “Englisch school teacher”-dress. If this bag were still alive, It’d be perfect with it! And yes, I just linked back to the very first official outfitpost ever on this blog. 
I am writing this and watching the weather channel at the same time, and what I am seeing is scaring me. East coasters, stay safe!

    Yay you look so happy in that last photo! =)

    That dress is gorgeous, you look lovely. The same thing has happened here, sometimes we get amazing red and orange leaves but this year they seemed to have skipped over that step to just become brown. I managed to find one spot that has red ones and used that to take outfit photos.

    My dogs love the leaves too, they try and catch them in the air if I kick them, unfortunately that led to a dog running straight in to me with it's mouth open. I'm now sporting an impressive bruise on my leg. Ah well, it was totally worth it to see them so happy xo

    Yes, the leaves are pretty crappy here too. Such a disappointing fall lol! The dress and cardi were great splurges! You look so pretty!!

    beautiful fall photos! love the dress and cardi, they were worth the splurge. We're watching the weather here in Michigan, the winds are high and temps dropping, but nothing like what farther east is getting, it is scary!

    I loved the description of this post on twitter. You rock the red.

    I am also disappointed in the leaves. Sigh. Maybe next year.

    Oh tell me about it, it was SNOWING here on Sunday. So imagine trees, full of yellow and orange leaves .. and then snow on them! SO weird.
    Great outfit, you look like a princess from some autumn fairytale! <3

    schattige outfit! leuke nieuwe lay-out trouwens πŸ™‚ β™₯

  12. 30 October 2012 / 18:18

    Love the red on you! You look great!
    And too bad about the lack of transition with the leaves. But, personally, I love the sound of crunchy leaves on the ground. It reminds me of how close the winter season is (and not so much for the weather, but for the holidays – and primarily because of the food). haha…

    These photos are so cute, I love how all of us bloggers are just in love with fall and play in the leaves! πŸ™‚
    Hey, at least you're making use out of your investment then – that dress is so pretty on you. I love the matching cardi haha.

    Aw you look so cute in your little dress! I love the colors in this outfit. The cardigan and tights remind me of fall leaves even though your foliage wasn't up to par this year. We're just getting to the peak of our colorful leaf time so I plan on going out and taking some pictures this week. I hope they don't all blow away!
