Is this the most stereotypical, girly title for a blog post or what?? No apologies though, because I DO love fall and everything pumpkin, and this dress feels like all of those things. But here's something I keep wondering lately, because I keep hearing people say "pumpkins aren't even spicy!" and making fun of the PSL thing... Is "pumpkin spice" just a shortened variation of "pumpkin PIE spice?!?!" As in, the flavoring that gets put INTO pumpkin pies to make them taste all cinnamon-y and warm and lovely??! Is that what PSLs are IMPLYING? So really, they are PPSLs?! Am I a genius? Or am I an idiot for just figuring this out? Maybe don't answer that.
Anyway, this lovely orange dress is perfect for fall, and I've been wanting to wear it as more of a jumper for a while (ever since I first wore it on the blog, here). Although it's still on the short side for me, I definitely like wearing it with a blouse underneath and with something like knee socks or tights. This blouse is a tricky piece too, because not only is it cropped, but it also has a weird high-low hem (which I generally dislike on all things -- mostly because I can't pull it off), so wearing it under something else seems like my only option. But I got the blouse during one of ModCloth's crazy sales, and the print reminds me of the illustrations in The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so I had to get it. I've also decided that I need to wear these shoes more often. The bows are just too stinking cute. And being the matchy-matchy girl I am (let's call a spade a spade), I had to have bows on my shoes to match the bows on the dress! Too cutesy, maybe, but I love it.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
