Fall Outfit Ideas, Eyewear, Comforting Recipes, and Fall Floral Inspiration

Outside my windows this moment, the lawn is happily decorated with the confetti of a few fallen leaves. 18 days from now, it will be officially fall, and September always feels like a New Year to me. I’m decluttering, organizing, and sprucing things up around here (not feverishly or energetically since I’m still healing, but steadily and slowly). Let’s get psyched for cooler weather with these lovely finds since I think most of us enjoy dressing for fall more than any other season. Fall Outfit Ideas, Eyewear, Comforting Recipes, and Fall Floral Inspiration follows with a sprinkling of whimsical quotes to pin.

Fall mood. Hello Lovely Studio.

Before we get to the outfits, let’s chat about eyeglasses for a sec since as you read this, I am probably in full panic mode at the eye doctor.

Why why why am I basketcase at these vision appointments???

Funny quote with humor on Hello Lovely Studio.

I don’t entirely get it. I’m unafraid of painful procedures and delivered my babies like a trooper. But that puff of air to the eyeball! Oh, and all those questions. My forehead against the thing…and I just may be talking myself out of another appointment. Eye drops…boo!

Inspirational quote on Hello Lovely Studio.

Those poor young technicians and eye professionals must just scratch their heads and think ‘what a sheltered, neurotic, waify little ol’ woman.’ I mean no one wants to end up the star of one of those secretly filmed viral youtubes…hahahahaha. I’ll let you know in my next post whether I required a sedative.

Warby Parker Fall 2019

Thankfully, once the prescription is in hand, finding pretty glasses is easy at Warby Parker. You choose frames to try at home, and they ship them for free. Decide on a pair to order or none, and return them for free as well.

Fall Outfit Ideas

1. Pewter Skirt + Black Sweater + Henley + Hoops

You could wear this anywhere, and any number of shoes or boots would work with it. Should we all dye our hair this pumpkin spice color for fall as well?

2. Stripey Top + Grey Sweater Blazer + Cuffed Denim

I love how powerful this sweater blazer feels, and I know not everyone loves to cuff their denim, but I’m a cuffer! I think it’s an ’80s thing, I dunno.

3. High Waisted Black Denim + Crisp White Shirt + Moto Jacket

I can’t live without my moto jackets, and they are just the right weight for fall. Black Converse to dress down the ensemble; heels to glam it up.

4. Burnt Orange Stripe Tee + Denim Jacket + Jeans or Leopard Print Skirt

Perfect fleamarket outfit if you opt for the jeans and add a cap! Opt for the skirt, beret, and a funky necklace to head out for a casual lunch.

I have one of these J. Crew statement necklaces with crystals and rhinestones that I have been wearing over t-shirts for years and years. I don’t tire of it.

5. Overalls + Sweatshirt + Sherpa Loafers

Especially for loungin’ homebodies, artists, creative types, and casual queens who miss the ’90s and/or their childhood. Omg, you guys, I wore my thrifted baggy overall shorts all summer around the house and garden and felt like I had entered a time machine. I’m no fashionista, but sometimes I can be a mad scientist genius time traveler with apparel.

These Overalls May Be This Homebody’s Fall Uniform

These look amazingly cute when cuffed, but you can uncuff ’em. And they aren’t just any overalls…say HELLO, LOVELY to premium 1969 Kaihara Japanese rigid denim made on vintage shuttle looms. (Don’t you adore vintage shuttle looms????)

When Gap was established back in ’69 on Ocean Avenue in San Francisco, the store sold two things: denim and records. Their 1969 Premium Collection celebrates that heritage with iconic pieces from the archives like these, remixed in celebration of their 50th anniversary!

      I agree about those arrangements, and I foresee spending way too much time over on that florist’s website, soaking in the splendor. She is an artist in every way, and the photographers capturing those weddings are geniuses! Can I get married to my husband again??? Hahahaha.

    God is so faithful ! Just this morning I received an email from my sister in law updating me on the health issues of a mutual friend. She reminded me that today is her first day of chemo and wanted me to send her an encouraging message .I immediately remembered the Anne Frank quite you posted today. I sent it to her along with a personal note .

    Michele -God is using you in ways you’ll probably never know so today I wanted to thank you for helping me find the perfect words for a friend. I know this is your heart behind the blog and know that your “labor” is not in vain.

      What a dear, encouraging friend you are. Thank you for uplifting me and reminding me of the ripples. I pray I can be used more and more and become a vessel in imperfect yet beautiful ways. Peace to you, and I hope your friend draws extra reserves of strength from the Source who will carry her through these treatments.

    Oh! You are the second person that I know that reacts that way at the eye doctor. My teen does that, and it takes multiple visits to get the prescription correct. We returned to our other doctor, because of that despite insurance. Because two pairs of glasses were wrong. But it all starts at that machine! And then it becomes worse, and the eye chart can’t be read and so on… At least our original doctor gets it. I hope it all goes well for you! We also have ordered glasses online and it worked great. There is an app to measure the distance.

      Thank you for making me feel joined – I know it probably sounds silly to people since I am not a baby about any other procedures. I saw a new doctor today, and I was honest about my issues, and everyone helped me feel more comfortable. I was also able to opt for an alternative to the drops – a test where they were able to get much more info and it took much less time. Thank goodness, it’s over! I appreciate all of your great advice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We must have the same taste in clothing, as I would wear all of the above outfits. Well, maybe not the overalls.

    The flower arrangements are gorgeous! A gentle reminder that I havenโ€™t bought myself any flowers since returning from my extended boat trip. Off to the store, I go! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh, and I still canโ€™t pin from your site. Is it my iPad? Does anyone else have this problem?

      Hahahaha – those overalls are childish or child-like and just right for homebody renovators like moi. I’m the same way when I’m reading a blog and feel inspired…sometimes I can’t wait to rush to the antique mall or paint store! We have to figure out that pin thing since I rely on pinners! I wonder if you try opening my blog in a different browser? Are you using Chrome?

    Hi Michele, Iโ€™m using Safari on an iPad. I was able to pin later in the day. Go figure! I love your quotes and often share them with family or friends.
