smells like fall.

Today I woke up and felt like wearing a dress. I knew exactly which one too.

On our rainy drive back through Tennessee last March, DK and I stopped off to shop at what past billboards boasted as the most massive thrift store in the U.S. I spent $20 and scored several great finds, including a vintage electric blue cotton knee-length dress with 3/4 sleeves and a tag that read in gold stitching Oleg Cassini. Meow.

That's today's dress. I chose to accent it with my brass sandals and a wide brown belt with a brass clasp. Perfect.

I think I woke up feeling ready to officially begin the fall season... I can usually sense how the weather is before even opening my curtains and was anxious to dress the part. As I finished hair, make-up and teeth cleaning, I opened my medicine cabinet to put away my toothbrush and I saw it. My finishing fall touch!

I'm the queen of disclaimers though so I have to tell you first that I don't spend much at all on indulgances like this AND it was a gift years ago that I still treasure greatly. My Coco Chanel. I received it on my birthday and because of that (and the scent is definitely too heavy for spring or summer) I wear it only on special occasions and in the fall and winter months...

So regardless of the fact the autumnal equinox is still a week away, I declare today the official First Day of Fall. Just cause I felt like it.
