An Autumn Outfit + Mixtape #10: Late Night Music

Summer just seems to drag on forever when you live in South Central Texas.  I don't know how many more 100 degree days I can handle.  To make matters worse, all the shops are getting their pre-fall merchandise in. For someone whose favorite season is autumn, it's like torture buying new sweaters and boots and knowing I still have at least a month before I can wear them.  The struggle, y'all:  it is real.

But a girl can dream... and I daydream a lot about autumn outfits.  You could say I'm a glutton for punishment, or you could say I just like to be prepared.

Here's a wishful thinking outfit to whet your appetite for fall:

I love the look of navy and rose gold accessories together.  That boyfriend style watch from Fossil is high on my wishlist at the moment.  This would be a great look for going to class, for all of y'all still in school.  I will admit that part of me was sad not to be headed back to school last week, but mostly because I missed school supply shopping.  But this would also be a great casual outfit for going to get coffee with an old classmate to catch up :).

And to make up for such a ridiculously long blogging drought (weather pun intended), I have a playlist to share too!

I was listening to my playlist of "late night music" the other night and figured I should share it.  Like most of my playlists, I couldn't really describe the intangible requirements I have for why songs match the theme, but I think it makes sense when you listen.  Anyway, it's a great playlist to listen to while you're working on something, which for me is usually late at night.

Enjoy:
