Breaking out my mustard tights for fall! This dress that I got from Greene Street Consignment is quite possible the most comfortable dress I've ever owned. It's a thick jersey knit, so it's really warm and comfy, but also has a cute shape, so it looks like you dressed up. Also, I still have my Halloween decorations up; I've been lazy. (I finally took them down this week)

I hope you're all staying warm this week!

dear creatures: fall 2013

So, my obsession with Dear Creatures continues... Their fall campaign looks like it was shot straight off the set of Mad Men and I want every piece!

winter orange

Just a quick outfit post today from indoors. I'm having to move my photo taking sessions inside because it's gotten so cold out! Also, since I work 9-5, I'm only home when it's dark out now! Kind of makes for some weird lighting, but now you can see my cool orange wall! 

I got this dress and these boots when Urban Outfitters had a super sale going on (half off all sale items! are you kidding!), so I basically look like a big ad for Urban in this outfit. Neither one of them actually wound up fitting me very well. I wanted to wear the dress loose, but it had such a weird shape! It's okay belted though. Urban Outfitters shoes never fit me. I wear a size 5 1/2 and the smallest size Urban makes is a 6 and I feel like they tend to run big. I've just been wearing thick socks with these.  I kept both because I really love them in theory and just couldn't part with them! Also, because I'm too lazy to return anything.

queens county fair

About a month ago, I went to the Queens County Fair, which is held every year at the Queens County Farm Museum. It's was such a fun time! There were all kinds of crafts, animals, a pig race (which I didn't get any great photos of), lots of food trucks and just a generally great atmosphere. I even won a free hay ride with that photo of the stuffed scarecrow! It's really great having this working farm right in Queens. They grow vegetables and have a farmers market there and have great events all year round. It's such an escape and gives me my country fix without having to leave the borough!
