Where's fall?

Living in the intermountain west means a lot of variability in temperatures and weather this time of year. We are transitioning out of a ridge-dominated summer (meaning we were under the influence of high pressure most of the time: hot and dry!). We just had a cold front pass through that made it feel more like winter than fall. I even woke up this morning to snow on the benches! Temperatures earlier this week were in the mid-upper 70s, and they are expected to reach that again early next week. Fall is nice, but this temperature/weather variability drives me crazy! I go from wearing a summer outfit to a winter outfit within a couple of days. It would be nice to actually wear a fall outfit sometime! Such is life. Anyway, to mourn the end of summer, here's an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago. It's my first official style post--woohoo!


Shirt: H&M | Karaoke SongstressShorts, Unisexy Sunglasses, There's a Map for That Necklace: ModCloth | Earrings: Forever 21

ModCloth is my guilty pleasure. I will talk about that website a lot, so be prepared! The shorts are my favorite; they are my first pair of high-waisted shorts. I love how they have buttons down the front. They are very flattering and super comfortable. They're short but not so short that my tush hangs out (I really don't like that aspect about high-waisted shorts usually). I've been considering wearing the shorts with tights underneath for fall. Thoughts on that?

Don't get me wrong--I LOVE fall! I am so excited for scarves and leaves changing and warm drinks and wrapping up in blankets. I had caramel cider at a local coffee shop recently, and it was amazing. I cannot wait to drink that again! Also, my boyfriend makes glorious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. YUM! Now I must go eat one... :)
