Fall Essentials

My picks for the cooler weather as the Fall season approaches.
A bit of this and a tad of that, all great to incorporate into your wardrobe.

1. Mustard yellow top is FALL! In my shop

2. Crotchet top found at PurpleDeerVintage

3. Fringe boots found at aniandrose

4. A bit of leopard a bit of fur found at purposefashion

5. Camel Bow Hat found at brownbagvintage

I've always gravitated towards neutral & warm colors for the Fall season,
 maybe because of the Holidays.
What are some of your picks?
besides a nice comfy pair of jeans that you can always depend on...

Mommy Dearest

Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest

This was my first costume for the Halloween parties! 
In all mostly females got this costume, but it was still easy and fun to do.

Have a great one for next weekend. 
I'll have that up next week.

My husband and two other friends dressed up as the Robert Palmer girls, they were a hit!

I love Halloween! 
What costumes do you have planned for Halloween?

New Week

vntg advertisement via foundinmomsbasement
It's coming to that time of year where we can wear tights, leggings and knee high socks again!

I apologize for the lack of post.
I went out of town last Thursday to the Big Easy aka New Orleans for a friends birthday celebration, but unfortunately had to end it early as there was a death in the family the next day.
My husband's grandmother passed away and as we flew back home to be with family, I realized how time flies and to enjoy life and live it to the fullest!
Hugs and many best wishes to all of you today, Carpe Diem!

shorts all year round

That's me in San Francisco last weekend. I adore this owl building. 
I don't remember what street this was on though.

Wearing: vintage ruffle top, vintage purse, vintage mens blazer, vintage oxfords, 
maroon tights from h&m, denim shorts from f21, yellow scarf.

I'm not really a skirt lady, but I love me some shorts. 
You can wear them all year round, really. In the fall and winter I love layering shorts with tights or leggings.
When its really cold, I usually wear 2 pairs of tights, maybe a solid color as the bottom layer and fun pattern on the top layer.

Still not to cold in Texas to wear too many layers, but soon I hope.
Hope you all have a wonderful fall weekend.
