a work of art is a confession

The air is cool and crisp. In the mornings the mist hangs low in the valleys, almost too beautiful to be real. Summer is nearly behind us.

I am loving being able to mix fun textures together as the weather turns cooler. This ensemble was particularly fun because of the leather fringe on the vest. That mixed with the light floaty tunic, the wool hat, and the suede boots made for a delicious outfit.

I felt like I should have been carrying around some sort of musical instrument, but I settled for a large leather bag.

I found this pretty hat at Charlotte Russe last winter for $.99. Needless to say, I snapped it right up. I love end-of-season shopping. It feels so good to break out something new when it's season appropriate and know that you didn't spend a small fortune for it.

The fringe on this vest is beyond cool. It sways when I walk and makes the coolest sound. The vest was a hand-me-down from my godmother - it goes with this skirt.

Your hat is fab. I own a very similar one but there was never an occasion to wear it. I hope I don't have to wait too long.
I wished my grandma would give me such stylish cloths. This vest is amazing!
