My transitional Fall outfits

You guys are hard cats to interact with!!! LOL I don’t know what it’s going to take to make you guys play with me on my blog! Just kidding!! I know we have a lot of things to look at and do in our lives and we don’t always have the time to interact with everything so I thought I would show you all the outfits I have (so far!!) for fall. Actually I have an ulterior motive for doing this. I can’t stand to hunt for something to wear!! It just about drives me nuts!!! Like this is actually something I often pray about!!  “God, what should I wear today??” I know it sounds kind of trivial but it saves my sanity a lot of times! lol and God is into the least trivial thing because he cares about the whole you. I thought I would put up all my outfits that I could wear for fall so I can make an outfit up really quickly by just looking at the pictures and then I’ll able to say, yes I’m in the mood for that outfit! and yes I dress by mood!  You guys can get ideas from what I have and use your own clothes to make your own fall outfits or better yet, take your own pictures and share it with us!!!
Here are some of my outfits that I have so far…uhm don’t worry, there’s more coming!! I have to use up my fabric stash as it’s getting rather….. uhm large.
Some outfits are casual and some are dressier. The shoes and accessories may not be what I would wear with it but to save time I used only a few accessories with the different outfits.

I do not like the length of my black and white skirt. I have a few skirts that I have to revamp from last year as they are now all too loose having lost 20lbs. I will show you guys what I’ve done with them. I’m thinking of cutting the long black and white skirt short and adding a black flounce, I think it would be really cute.
I have so many projects that I want to make, it’s almost overwhelming!!….. BUT my plans may need to change or be a bit different…. sometimes plans change you know, sometimes you can throw your plans right out the door because God’s plans may be different. Good things are coming though, I’m sure of it!!! hehehe
P.S. If you don’t like the flames, get out of the fire! I say burn, it’s good for ya!! lol Nothing like a little heat to keep you on your toes!! Fire refines.

Ecclesiastes 3

1 -There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2- a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3- a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4- a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 -a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 -a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 -a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8- a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

End of summer country outfit

Hello folks, I've got to get in this last summer outfit before summer ends!!! It's almost gone! bummer!! Summer is one of the best times of year for me, I love to be warm!!! but not too warm, I do not like the foggy stiffling mugginess that our Maritime weather sometimes brings but right now we are having a beautiful end of summer beginning of fall. The leaves are turning color already at my house, I have a nicely colored red tree. We have lots of colorful dogwood with the pretty red berries up high in the trees, sign of a hard winter I've heard it said but I don't believe it because we had lots of dogwood berries another year and we practically got no winter. Anyways!!! back to my outfit!!! Here it is!!! Very comfy cozy!!!

Excuse the messy blog post but by computer is my own fault of spilling water on it!! I have tried all the tricks of trying to dry it up but still no go. I am hoping that after a while it will work but I think I will have to invest in a new computer. I am on my husbands computer now and it sucks! lol It's a good thing I had put most of my pictures and videos on an external hard drive because now I cannot access anything on my computer...all my programs!!! sigh, I guess I've learned my lesson of not having any drinks anywhere around my computers!!...or have I?  I hope!!! hahaha
FYI...screw-on lids may not prevent your liquids from leaking out!!! Be warned, don't leave them on top of your computers!!!

Excuse the underlining of the words....for some reason this post will not let me not underline the rest of the post!??

the skirt is new but the jacket, I made it a while back

This is the whole outfit I made to wear together

There is a story here. While I was
making the front I happened to
snip right throught the front to the back.
Yikes, I thought, I've ruined my shirt.
Then I started talking to myself.
Use your creativety what could you
do to fix this, think!  And it came to me
Well you've already cut the back of the shirt
so you may as well cut it up good! So I sliced it
up and there you have it. A sliced up T-shirt with style!!!
I really believe where ever there is a will, there's a way
You just need to put a little brain power in there and figure
out a solution.
I could have worn this bare back but I didn't want to. I didn't have
the right kind of bra so it wouldn't show so I opted to wear a
tank top underneath.

I really like the yellow sweater with it, makes it look so summery

This outfit is late enough that I'll only get use of it next summer


Now I've got my groove on!!! Ride em cowboy!!! lol

I could wear this with a pink polka dot tie belt too

Or with a white belt

That it folks! The end, Kaput, there is no more.....until the next time!!!
Stay tuned when I reveal some surprises I've made

P.S. don't bite off more than you can chew!!! Got that!!??! :)

Can I wear this for fall???


Come play with me a game of fashion. I’ve been going through my closets(well actually I don’t have a closet yet but it’s coming) I’ve been going through my summer clothes and sorting out what I know I won’t wear again this year and what I could possibly wear for fall. I’ve got plenty of outfits to wear but I want your opinion. Everyone loves to give their opinion right?? hahaha  Now I will be posting different outfits here and you guys can help me wear just the right outfit this fall. I will be posting this to my Facebook and so if you prefer you can vote there or on my blog. I have one that I prefer, let’s see how many people prefer my taste. There are some that I purposefully put on here that I do not like at all so it will be amusing to see the difference of opinion! lol

This is another outfit for fall, September 13, 2013, yes it’s Friday but I am not superstitious and my day is actually going pretty good, I’m blessed by God anyway, I don’t have bad luck, hard times sometimes but not bad luck! lol Winking smile 

Ok this is a summer dress, it’s actually something I used for a bathing suit cover-up. The jacket is one that I made.

Can I wear this for fall?

Black belt or white belt?

Tights or no tights?

Striped tights or plain tights?

Different jacket?

Plain shoes or print shoes?

How would you wear it?

Would you do pink and blue?

                             1?                          or                           2?


Help me!!!! lol

This is what I chose

fall clothing and things_6210

I chose to opt for tights as I can’t stand to be cold but I would wear it without tights on a warm day of course.
I thought Melanie’s idea with the black bracelet and classic black clutch was a great idea although I did not have a black clutch and I also liked Ruthie’s view too. My small leopard print is passable with this outfit and is in style for fall although there is a bit of a competition and would be better worn with a solid colored dress. I may have to invest in a classic black bag. I have a grey bag but it did not go well with this outfit.

I chose dangly chandelier earrings to bring out the pink in the dress and also because they go well with my face shape which is what I call a strong oval.

There you have it, a great outfit for fall so thanks a lot for all the help, I appreciate your taste and ideas.

Stay tuned for the next outfit!!! Smile
