Before The Sun Sets

Daylight saving time has really hit me hard. And, in case you didn’t know it is “saving” not “savings.” It’s been a week and I still can’t get used to the time change. Walking back from class at five o’clock and it is pitch black outside really makes me long for spring. Plus, by like seven o’clock I am so ready for bed. I guess this only means one thing…the winter is coming!

It was such a beautiful day so I could not let the day pass without going outside to take a few photos. Sadly, I had class until late afternoon so I rushed home to make sure I had time to snap some photos before the sun went down. The sun was just setting, hence the darker look and random orange spots on my head.

I always like to look nice for class. Although, most people probably do not notice, I feel more confident and energized when I am “dressed up.” Don’t get me wrong, sweat pants are so comfortable but I do not think they are appropriate for class, no matter how many times you have pressed that snooze button. After classes is another story, that is where you will find me in my lounge attire. Here’s a peek of what I normally wear to class.

Who wouldn’t feel like a star while wearing this sweater? My new taupe and black star patterned sweater is from H&M. The bold pattern on my sweater is enough to make a statement, no jewelry required.

Are you getting sick of seeing me wear my Old Navy vests? I hope not because I can’t stop wearing them. I actually bought another one in a cream color last week. My obsession continues. My Old Navy fleece-lined puffer vest adds extra warmth and style to any outfit.

The jeans I’m wearing are from Madewell. Last spring, I bought these “cargo green” colored jeans (even though the green color is not showing up as vibrant in these photos). I always thought this green color was for the spring time, but I am determined to make them work for the fall. The perfect way to transition them into the fall is by pairing them with a dark colored sweater.

My sparkly, eye-catching flats are by Steve Madden. To play up another pattern and incorporate more neutral colors, I always choose these shoes.

Finally, my class day is over. Now time to put on some leggings and a baggy sweatshirt and relax. I can’t wait to show you another one of my class day outfits. Until then, go out and enjoy the beautiful season of fall. Before we know it, there will be snow on the ground.

    I love your look, especially the shoes! And I know what you mean, I’m feeling more confident when I like my outfit. And I also just love dressing up and experimenting with different outfits. Oh and I’m really excited for winter – not because I’m a huge fan of cold weather but December is my favourite month of the year. 🙂 x

    It’s been a few weeks and I’m still getting used to Daylight Savings Time ending! Love this look though – the star print is super cute!
