It's almost Autumn~

    I woke up Friday morning and it was actually cold outside! Usually mornings are 60 degrees, but on Friday, I woke up having it be barely in the 50's! Unfortunately for me, I woke up late that morning and didn't think about checking the weather.. I ended up wearing shorts that morning and was freezing all day in class! *lesson learned... check the weather before heading out to school* I am excited for this cooler weather though! I do miss summer quite a bit, but I am beyond excited for Autumn. Just that cool crisp air paired with the colorful leaves makes me excited. Plus fall = apples, pumpkin pie, apple cider, apple donuts.. etc!  I can't wait!
   Yesterday I went outside to take a few photos in my *sister's* maxi skirt. (that she so kindly let me borrow!) She needed a long skirt for class and I recommenced this one to her. She loves it .. and so do I!

I really liked this picture... therefore made it extra big =)

I absolutely love the  color of this skirt. It's a bright coral color that is sure to catch people's attention. The fit of the skirt is pretty nice as well though I might have benefited from going down a size. The waist was just a tad big for me, but tucking a shirt into the skirt helped it stay.The length of this maxi skirt was perfect on me. It just barely hit the ground without shoes! My favorite thing about the skirt was how comfortable it was on my body. It was not restricting at all and easy to walk in. Since it was so long, I didn't have to worry about pulling the skirt down as I walk!

Since the skirt was so loose and flowly on the bottom, I opted to wear a tighter shirt up top. The shirt I am wearing is just a simple black v neck. The wind was no cooperating with me while I was trying to take photos here hehe. At the beginning, there was no wind and I was actually hoping for a bit of wind. That way, I could get a picture of the skirt flying as I walked. My wish was quickly granted and within 5 min, the wind picked up rapidly to the point where my hair was flying everywhere! (Hello Autumn!) 

Floral Ring

For my shoes, I wore a pair of sandals.  For my jewelry, I chose to wear my set of coral colored bangles  and a little flower ring. I actually got this ring from amazon last year. It only cost 2.75 I think (though shipping was like 5 dollars) 
Next week is going to be really busy for me! I know I say this ever week, but this Tues. I have my first cross country meet. I am so nervous! This Friday, I also have to head up to New Hampshire with the team for another meet Sat. morning. I love going to New Hampshire especially during the fall. Besides cross country, I still have to complete my homework. One of my teachers assigned us 117 pages to read from a book + an essay. That is just a ridiculous amount! I plan on getting that book and essay done tonight through!

  27. Usually when I go to the mall and it's hot outside, I forget they use air conditioner and always get cold!! I must learn to always carry a cardigan with me...
    Oh I want to have a sister to borrow her clothes too!! ;DD

    I love wearing maxi skirts (btw, I need to photograph a gorgeous dress I have here!), and it's spring here in my country!! ;D

    Have a nice week! Xoxo
