Autumnal Glory

It seems fitting to begin October outfit posts in orange and black, although thankfully not a too literal interpretation of that seasonal combination. This outfit might just be autumn personified, even if the trees behind me haven't quite heard the cries around the northern hemisphere for fall color. A cold front blew in this weekend, so perhaps dying leaves aren't too far away (is it strange that we enjoy watching leaves die?). I'm pretty excited to start wearing tights again, because monochromatic legs and shoes are kind of amazing. Also, thanks to Chicwish I have another cape to add my collection. The buttons don't seem very secure, but I really like the fabric and haven't noticed any other flaws in construction.

Outfit details:
Seychelles booties (2 years old)
vintage coach purse

Really nice colors! The tights look similar to you hair!
It's funny to realize that it's already october...
Here in Paris we have a great sun and the weather is much hotter than last august!! I can say I'm quite happy about this ^^ But I know that soon, I will have to wear tights, as you...

Lovely chic style :o)!

I also have a penchant for the monochromatic look with tights + shoes = loooong legs. And the fact that your outfit is wonderfully autumnal is the icing on that pumpkin spice cake (mmmmm).

Love the cape and the tights. And in the shot with the purse and downcast eyes, you look all ready to board the Super Chief!

Rachel said...

I love the outfit! Very festive for the new month of fall. Where do you get your tights? I have been searching all over for some fun colors to get me and my dresses through the upcoming cold months and I can't find any good colors anywhere!

I don't usually comment (not for lack of reading, I am a daily reader), but I really really love this outfit! I wasn't sure about that F.A. Bronte dress but after seeing it about a zillion times on you I kind of want one now!

Chelle Lynn said...

I LOVE IT!! The dress looks so simple and yet elegant, is it made of velvet? Great style Rebecca and I agree coloured tights are great, I find they also reflect my mood from time to time. Oh have you put any thought into your Halloween costume for this year?

From Paris said...

What a coincidence I just ordered these tights last week and I received them today !! Very nice color, I can't wait to wear them, but in France it's not really fall we have a return of summer !
Thanks for all beautiful images and inspiration

@Anonymous, yes, the dress is velvet. & not really on the halloween costume--sadly I don't think I'll be going to any costume parties. :/

LOVING this outfit. Such a great look for fall. I would love some tights in that color. I also would love another pair of seychelles. They have the most adorable shoes!

hellolyndsey said...

My gosh you look so stunning! Those tights really pop with the dress and I love how the cape has matching colored pinstripes in it as well :). Amazing as always!

It does sound strange saying you enjoy the leaves dying but it's true, it does look so pretty, wish I could see it more. Love your outfit, so perfect for fall, great cape & love the tight color. Actually your hair color seems perfect for fall too, love your cute, so cute!

marice said...

your outfit is really cute! though the fourth pic i find kinda funny (not in a bad way). seems like those arms are not yours. hehe.

miss modish said...

I love that your hair and tights and shoes all match! And that velvet dress- I want. The whole outfit is perfect, you look so so cute!

Jul said...

Jamie Rose said...

I'm in love with this look! I need to get some rust colored tights to go with my tawny shoes like yours. I love how they look together and elongate your legs. The cape is fantastic too. A perfectly fall look.

Vintage Reflection said...
