Fall Outfits, Eyewear, Florals, Recipes + Me Unfiltered

Outside my window, the lawn is happy with its confetti party carpet of fallen leaves. I would like to have a mood to match this morning, but my throat is a mess, I’m coughing constantly, and I require nothing less than holy ghost power to turn it all around. I’m definitely improving and healing from the virus, but it is simply NOT going to run its course without a fight. Think it knows who it is dealing with? Fall Outfits, Eyewear, Florals & Recipes follows with a bunch of random banter and whimsical quotes to pin for kicks.

Fall mood with cableknit cardigan, scarf, messenger bag, hydrangea in a bucket and autumn coziness - Hello Lovely Studio.
Hello Lovely Fall Outfits, Eyewear, Florals & Recipes…hello lovely indeed.

I’m also carb loading to gain weight which is a dandy recipe for ‘sluggish with a side of EverythingIsAwfulThough.’ Which brings me to outfits. Wait, what? It is not one of those autumns where I am worried about what to wear. But even if we all have less fall events to attend, a few lovely finds may lift the spirits since we have to get dressed (sort of). And dressing for fall means COZY.

Is this scarf the most important lovely find in the post?

Hmmmmm – tempted to say ‘all the yeps.’

Before we get to outfits, let’s chat about eyeglasses for a sec.

As you read this, it is possible I am entering full panic mode since it’s almost time for my annual eye checkup. The panic has nothing to do with Covid.

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

It is not as if I am a stranger to painful procedures; I delivered my babies like a trooper. But that puff of air to the eyeball!

Oh, and the hundred questions…forehead against the thing, lions, tigers, bears…and I just may be talking myself out of another appointment. (Also eye drops…boo!)

The poor technicians and eye professionals must scratch their heads and think ‘lawd, what an odd, jumpy little ol’ woman.’ Let’s hope they aren’t filming.

Warby Parker Fall 2020

Thankfully, once the prescription is in hand, finding pretty eyeglasses is easy thanks to Warby Parker. You choose frames to try at home, and they ship them for free! Decide on a pair to order or skip the order 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 tint our hair this glorious pumpkin spice color for fall as well?

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 love my thrifted baggy overall shorts for summer in the garden and they work like a time machine. I’m no fashionista, but to be a genius mad scientist time traveler is some consolation.

Are these Overalls a Homebody’s Ultimate 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.

Thank you for hanging out with me and taking me as I am, irritable and one-off on a day like today. I’m thinking of you as you work hard to stay safe, praying you will not have to fight as I must now fight. And I’m feeling tender about you as I consider the blessing of how we can connect and heal each other from a distance. Beaming my love directly at you this moment.

Peace to you right where you are.

    I’m excited to know that I have most of the essential parts to many of these fall wardrobe ideas 🙂 Thanks for letting us know what’s “in” for the season.

    About the floral arrangements….Oh my! Words cannot express the utter gloriousness of their beauty!

      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. 🙂

    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 haven’t bought myself any flowers since returning from my extended boat trip. Off to the store, I go! 😀

    Oh, and I still can’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?

    Also my caughing doesn’t go better since February . No doctor have an answer . Obviously I must live with it.
    But today you make me smile with lots of funny quotes. Only the quote from anne Frank was a huge mistake
    (if it is the same Anne I mean…you know?). Autumns brings such a big color palette though we can use more
    subtle colors in our clothes. Personally I always reach for black, grey, brown, ocre and to color the hair in pumpkin
    why not? Once I did it in copper and it looked stunning but I was centuries younger

    • Michele

      I need to try copper – haven’t worn that hue for a long time! It is troubling to hear your cough is still persistent, but the virus is still so new so we just don’t know about the long term damage. Folks that have symptoms months after being infected are called ‘long haulers,’ and I haven’t done too much research because I don’t want to become too distressed. From what I understand the cough remains as a result of what may be thought of as a ‘sprained windpipe.’ Perhaps this opinion too will change as scientists learn more about the post-viral condition.

    I noticed the Warby Parker glasses. I just got my tortoise shell WP glasses this week. Love them. Process was easy. Saved 2/3 of what my last pair cost me locally. Would definitely buy from them again.

      Wonderful to hear from you! Yes – I love tortoise for eyeglasses too. Warby Parker creates such classic styles, and I love their humanitarian efforts. I am about ready to ditch my clear crystal frames for something colorful because these clear things are invisible when set down. Have you ever tried searching for invisible glasses when you’re blind without em!?! Hahahahaha. Hugs to you and Ascot!
