some copycat action found here.

 sweater, leggings: f21 / skirt: H+M / boots: c/o Blowfish Shoes / watch: fossil

so while shopping at H+M, i saw one of the models in their ads rock out this outfit. i stepped back, put my hand to my chin, and said hmmm, i could totally recreate that. so i went home and i did. the only H+M piece is the skirt but i knew i had a green sweater, leggings and similar wedged boots - and i absolutely love how fun and colorful it turned out. i basically am a fan of outfits that looks "like a crayon threw up on me." (heard that line from a recent America's Top Model marathon over the weekend. it totally stuck to me.)

and can i say how happy i am that neon continues to carry over into fall? even if it didn't, i'd still wear bright colors, but i love the fact that stores will still be carrying so many more pieces in the neon shades. (insert happy dance here.)

oh and can i just throw in there for free, that i absolutely loved how chilly it got over the weekend? i cannot wait till autumn temps become more consistent here in the South. i defintely took advantage of the temperatures and enjoyed some apple cider, wore a hoodie to my sister's soccer game, and wrapped myself in a blanket while watching movies. mmm, autumn, i heart you so much.

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

    Also, I can't wait until we get fall temperatures here as well, but that won't really happen until late October. I'll be wishing and hoping for cooler weather until then! :]

  4. Yes! Autumn is my favorite season.
    I am definitely a big fan of either making summer dress Fall and summer colors in Fall. Who says we have to put our closets away because seasons change?

    Love the new skirt!
    I miss living near an H&M!
    Such great deals.

  27. Very cute look! I always go with tights instead of leggings in autumn/winter, though, because I feel awkward about the little line of skin that shows between leggings & booties. Just me?! It's such a good feeling when you see a look someplace & think, "Hey, I can do that!" You did this one so well.

    Just saw that *I* won your giveaway! So jazzed. Emailing you now!
