Sylvia (who, by the way, has a delightful new blog that you should all visit immediately!) and I ended up doing a little impromptu photoshoot after school and before Our Town rehearsal today. The Liberace jacket strikes again!
We actually started with the idea to take pictures by my deliciously creepy shed, but my favorite photos were the ones Sylvia took by this pretty red-leafed tree in the very corner of my backyard.
I love the quality of this photo, like a still from a glamorous old movie. The sunlight was so perfect and crisp and autumnal today, and it turned everything all sparkly.
I couldn't resist throwing some leaves in the air. And some smiling pictures for once! When Sylvia photographs me, I can't help it. She's my favorite photographer.
This shot and the next one are possibly the most colorful photographs of myself I have ever seen (and yes, I edited them a bit, but still). They feel like something out of The Secret Garden or Willy Wonka. I love how warm and saturated and technicolor everything looks. The leaves are hot pink!

I know you've seen most of these pieces before, but challenging myself to find fresh ways to wear old things (and then sharing them with you) is what keeps blogging and getting dressed in the morning exciting for me!
That said, I have many unfulfilled fantasies regarding my fall wardrobe. Currently I am lusting for a sequined blazer (I have seen a great one from H&M that I am dying to get my hands on), little bodycon skirts, jewel toned tights, colorful blazers, a cozy circle scarf, a warm pair of ankle length leggings... the list goes on and on. What are you craving for the colder months?
