*a birthday gift from my mama!

I guess red has become my go-to color for this season.  I didn't think I owned a whole lot of it (I always gravitate towards cooler colors), but apparently I do now!  I love this little red hat (which I first wore on my blog here), and it goes perfectly with this dress, which I've had for quite a while.  And can we take a minute to talk about this bag??  I practically begged for it for my birthday, and my mom can evidently take a not-so-subtle hint.  :)  It's truly fantastic.  I featured it on my Friday Favorites a few weeks ago, but that didn't do it justice.  I love the rotary dial interface on the front, and the most fun part is that the phone earpiece can plug into your mobile phone as a headset!  So you can keep your real phone tucked away and answer your calls with the purse phone set!  I haven't tried it out yet, but even if it wasn't functional, I would have wanted it.  My mom is a huge Betsey Johnson fan, so I knew she would understand my obsession with this bag!  It's smaller than I'd thought, but even cuter in person.

These photos were taken before our first snowfall... I can't believe winter's on its way already.  Just like I can't believe November is half over already!  Time seems to be moving so fast lately (which is strange, because with everything that's happened in my personal life, you'd think time would feel like it was creeping by).  It's interesting how your perspective of time changes as you grow older.  Summertime used to last forever when I was a kid, and now it absolutely flies by.  I think this is because you have more time to compare it to, but it's still a strange phenomenon.  Although fall is my favorite season, in a way, I'm glad it's going by quickly.  It's been an emotional time for me, and I think next time it comes around, I'll be able to appreciate it more.  At least I've made it through in one piece (thus far, anyway)!  And I do hope it lasts a little while longer, because up here, winter seems to go on forever, and it'd be nice to delay its start for even just a bit.

Have a terrific Thursday!

  1. omg you are so cute!


  2. THAT BAG! And thats awesome that it's functional, too. I share a Betsey obsession with my mom as well.
    Oh, and thanks for buying my apple pin! I'm only assuming that was you because I recognized your name, haha. I'm shipping it now, and I'm including a lil something extra for you :D

  3. Okay, so I adore that purse and love that dress- but the hat and coat combo but steal the show 100% for me! It all comes together so perfecting.

  4. Such a beautiful outfit! I love the classic red, white and black color combination <3 Fantastic coat!

  5. Red is such a gorgeous colour on you, and that first photo is so adorable. I love everything about this outfit (that bag!). This summer was nothing but a flash for me, and fall is turning out the same way. I do hope next year slows down just a wee bit!

  7. You look so gorgeous! That dress is so flattering on you, and I love the style of it. And that purse is awesome! How nice that your mom got it for you, for your birthday. :) Ugh, I hate that winter is coming! Summertime does always seem to just fly by!

  8. Totally in love with your little purse!

  9. I was wondering if that phone was actually functional!! That's so handy (and fun!!). Question: how do you get the hat to stay on? I was wondering this, as I'm so tempted to order it!


  10. I think in 2014 I'm going to take a page out of your book and focus on adding some cute and quirky accessories to my wardrobe - your outfits are always especially adorable because you pick out the best bags and jewelry :D

  11. That may be the cutest purse I've ever seen! I love it! And how cool that it's functional too!
