Newsboy.





This outfit started out different. The scarf was on my head, I had a giant necklace, and red lipstick. And then, somehow, that wasn't working and the scarf became a little bow tie.



It wasn't really cool enough for this kind of thing. Morning and evenings are chilly, but during the day in the sun it's still just a bit too much. Lately, I've been getting away from dresses and skirts. Even away from vintage! Not for good mind, just for the moment. I'm distracted by all the new fall things set up everywhere, and most of my favorite vintage spots seem to be running dry for the moment. This happened last year too. Suddenly we hit autumn and I wanted nothing more than pants and funny vests. Less delicate and frilly!

And just to round it all out, since suddenly it seems we're all loving outtakes these days, here is a picture of me being really derpy:



:D

  7. This is really perfect for fall. I think there's something about cooler weather that really makes me want to wear pants, especially as I hardly ever wear them in the summer.

    I love how outfits sometimes mutate as you leave the house.

  14. I love that scarf! My own bow-making is rather sloppy though. I need to practice! The lavender makes the look still feminine though. ;P

  17. Dear Kater,

    I think I should share with you some lovely things that you may like.
    First, I think you should listen to Linda Perhacs with her album Parallelograms. Then, you should see the movie "Atonement".
    When I heard this music and saw this movie, it reminded me of you. I hope it will be a nice surprise for you !
    Excuse my english, I am french...

    Goodbye,
    Claire

  20. Suuuuuuuper super cute :) I love the boyish touches, but how you work them with a darling femininity! Good choice on the bow-tie version of your scarf...totally makes the outfit.

  21. I really like this, actually. That's strange because I'm used to like the vintage frilly things you describe, but this looks really good (and comfortable!).

  22. I totally get you, I'm digging the no fuss, minimalist androgynous look for fall too and this totally works on you! Love the shoes!

  24. Oops!! Totally mispelled my own name :P rofl...

    Kate,

    Thank you so much for the delightful comment!!

    Your tips & tricks helped bunches :D And, I hope to try them out tomorrow. My hair is similar to yours, but it has the teensiest trace of a wave when I leave it messy :P It also holds curls really well (I don't know how well yours does), without the need for tons of product :)

    I really can't remember, for some reason, whether or not I commented on this post already, but I had meant to say something when I saw it yesterday!! I really love the look you did, and even shared it on my FB wall w/ a link to your blog.

    Yesterday I was so inspired (and in a blech! mood partially) that I ended up trying something similar. Instead of a vest, I wore a navy blue cardigan, and my scarf was tied in a flower <3 It turned out really nicely w/ the capri's I was wearing, and I hope to try it again sometimes soon w/ jeans :)

    Thanks again!! God bless,
    Victoria

  25. I love this look, especially the little bow tie!

    Your nail polish is fantastic! Do you have the colour name (I've been looking for a similar shade for EVER)?

  27. I love this outfit so much, it even makes me want to give pants another go. And if that is you looking derpy, that is just depressing!

  28. I love, love, love those shoes and it's so nice to see Albany in the background. Lark Street? I just moved away and miss it dearly. Lovely outfit, as always.

  31. I love this outfit! :) Funny how things morph throughout the day of wearing them; I sometimes will tweak a look endlessly until I get it just right. ;)

  35. i love this outfit! we seem to be on the same wavelength pants-wise! i've been craving them too. along with icecream...weird!

    i've been reading you blog for ages (i used to have my own blog too) and have just started up a new one of my own. i've currently got a questionaire on for my university course, i was wondering if you might be able to fill it out, if you have the time? it's not very long! it can be found at http://girlandbird.weebly.com/blog.html.

  37. It's really perfect for fall. I think there is something cooler than I really feel like wearing pants, especially because I never put them in the summer. In all these there are so many things which is really great.
