What I Wore: Transitioning from Summer to Fall

Black Cardigan and Horse Print Dress {Living Outside the Stacks}

Hello, My Lovelies! Hope you’re having a good week so far. We’ve been having a crazy amount of rain and wind. In fact, we spent part of Monday hunkered down in the basement thanks to the tornado sirens. I know I said I wanted sweater weather but I don’t recall asking for storm shelter weather. It’s too soon for all of this…

Thankfully, I was able to stockpile a few pictures before the days started getting shorter {and windier and cooler}.

I’ve worn this dress several times before. You can see it here and here. One of my favorite ways is with the suede wine colored shooties, black tights, and black cardigan. I think the black tights and shooties keep the dress modest {it’s a little on the shorter side}, while the cardi wards off the chill.

My pup, Squeekerz, joined me for a picture. Usually he runs when he sees the camera, but lately he’s been, ummmm, posing for me. Check out his best poses here and here.

How do you transition your clothes from Summer to Fall?

Blogtober: My Favorite Perfume/Scent

I’m a librarian and work around people with varying degrees of scent sensitivities, so I don’t wear perfume on a daily basis. I also have sensitive skin, so I have to be careful what I use and how often I use it.

One of the few perfume lines that I can use without too much of an issue is Philosophy. I like the line but sometimes the scents can be a bit too, um, precious for me. I lean towards the darker more exotic smells like red plum, passion fruit, patchouli oil, blood orange, sandalwood, and black orchid. And leather. Don’t get me started on the smell of leather. I really should have been an interior car designer. Scents that aren’t very library friendly.

Coffee Beans from Dynamite Coffee {Living Outside the Stacks}So I settle for office friendly scents like fresh roasted coffee beans. When they’re fresh, you can taste the coffee when you smell it. The beans above have a subtle hint of chocolate. They just smell like, um, life!

Lemons {Living Outside the Stacks}

I’m also partial to the smell of lemons. I’m not sure why but it makes me think of exotic places, peaceful sunsets, cool water lapping at my feet… Almost all of my cleaning products have a hint of lemon in them. So does my coffee, for that matter.

#FMSPHOTOADAY on Instagram: Day 6 to Day 12

Hi! How’re you guys doing? Are you ready for another week? I am and I’m not. Now that I’ve announced that we’re moving, I’m so ready to get on with it, you know? This is gonna be the longest 7 months ever…

Day 12: {L is for…}

Lipstick.

This is the last of my favorite tube by Revlon. I use it sparingly and only for special occasions. The struggle, y’all.

Day 11: {K is for…}

Keys.

Vintage cast iron keys found at Annie Laurie’s Antiques. I haven’t decided where to put them yet but I had to have them.

Day 10: {J is for…}

Jar.

There’s no story. Just a jar. I wish I could say that I use them for cool stuff like homemade bone broth or something, but I usually end up drinking cranberry juice from it. ‘Cause I’m classy like that.

Day 9: {I is for…}

#FMSPHOTOADAY ~ Follow @4daenelt on Instagram {Living Outside the Stacks}

Ice Cream.

Yes, I did make a special trip for the prompt. I suffer for my art.

Day 8: {H is for…}

Hand.

I love my son but his hands freak me out. His fingers are so long and bendy {he’s double jointed}.

Day 7: {G is for…}

Goat.*

I prefer monkeys but goats can be interesting too.

Fall.

My favorite season: sweaters, scarves, boots, changing colors…. It’s just so beautiful and magical.

Favorite coffee picture of the week:

I spent the morning touring the campus of Southeast Missouri State University with my youngest daughter. I cannot believe she’s getting ready to go off to college. This is gonna be the quickest 7 months ever…

Have a great week! Hope to see you around the interwebs, I’m on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and, of course, Instagram. Give me a yell.

Be happy,

Daenel T {Living Outside the Stacks}
