Outfit of the Day: It's Finally Fall!

As my good friend Amanda Lee once said, "Some people wear clothes - you wear outfits."

That's so true.

I don't do a lot of OOTD posts because 1. I'm lazy. 2. It's hard to take selfies of an entire outfit. 3. See #1.

But on the first day when I felt like I could wear something fall-ish all day and not die of heat or cold, I think I looked pretty dang cute.

*Dress: Old Navy (probably 3 or four years ago - it came in black too)/Cardigan: Old Navy (again maybe 2 years old)/Belt: Fossil (it's actually a men's belt - I like the thicker look of them)
**This is in my office at work - thanks Amanda Lee!
***The only thing I kind of don't like about this dress is that it's a little bit in the body and a little small in the boobs, but that's the story of my life. And because the universe thinks it's funny, I've definitely seen results at the gym, but very little in any place I wanted to see them.  

And of course I had to accessorize: 

*These will forever by my Renly Baratheon earrings. RIP Renly.

*Earrings: Old Navy (they're in stores now - for $5.95!)/Watch: Fossil

And of course a cute lunch tote and purse!

*Diet Coke and Yoplait - the lunch of champions.

*This is my teacher purse - I can fit all the tests and books in it.

*Tote: Lilly Pulitzer "Tusk in Sun" Insulated Lunch Tote (via Amazon)/Purse: Sakroots Medium Carryall Satchel in "Water Nation Coral Reef" (I can only find this on the internet, but I got it at Macy's a couple months ago)

And some fall appropriate shoes: 

*Moccasins: Maurices (last year?)

Even though a lot of these pieces aren't in stores anymore, I think a floral dress, neutral cardigan, belt, and moccasins or boots is a pretty easy and versatile fall outfit. I wore this outfit on a date last year (with the Republican who brought a gun to Buffalo Wild Wings...but I looked cute while being horrified), I'm at work and teaching today, and I would definitely wear this on the weekend to a farmer's market or festival. 

I have a ton (too many - I'm a hoarder) of cute clothes, so I'm going to try to get better about posting the outfits I come up with. 

Once I finish being lazy. :)
