Look #18: Say Hello to Fall!

September 17, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Fashion/Beauty, Journal, Outfit of the Day by Kristina Horner

I guess it’s still technically summer, but lately when I’ve been going outside – it doesn’t feel like it. I love the sun and the beach and short denim cutoffs as much as the next girl, and I’m really not ready to let summer go… but I won’t pretend there isn’t a little growing excitement to pull out my scarves and legwarmers and sweaters and pumpkin spice candles. Come on. I can feel it in the air… can’t you?



This was the first outfit I’ve worn this year that I felt was decidedly fall. It wasn’t for any specific occasion… just for the anticipation of things to come. I’m wearing a red leather jacket I picked up at Forever 21, a lacy crop top and floral pants from Target, and my yellow Tieks. The headband is from Claire’s, of all places. Hey – don’t knock good accessories!

I can feel summer projects winding down and fall projects picking up. My Extra Life sense are tingling, my NaNoWriMo fingers are itchy, and my Project 4 Awesome muscle wants flexing.The air of festivities is upon us, and I can’t wait for Halloween parties and Thanksgiving gatherings and holiday celebrations – and of course, most of all: the very best festivals in World of Warcraft.

I thought I would mourn the loss of summer a bit more, especially with how little time I was actually able to spend in the sun this year because of Job Hunters, but this time of year makes me feel so alive that I really just feel happy and anticipatory and ready to spend some quality time with my friends and family and everyone in between.

What do you most look forward to about fall/winter? Which holiday is your favorite? Which party makes you the most excited? Let me know!

I found this makeup site and thought you might like it! It’s geek-themed and seems really cool. Sample-sized stuff for just a dollar too!

I’ve been reading your blog since Oh Hey Kristina, but I’ve never commented, so hi kristina!
It’s actually 43 in NJ right now, so jeans and heavy coats for everyone! My favorite part of fall is apple picking and makin pie 🙂 mmmm I could really go for a piece now!

Oh man, I gotta find somewhere to pick apples. That sounds awesome.

I love your Looks posts! And get super excited whenever one pops up in my Feedly. I’m tall, like you (5′ 11″), so you’re totally an inspiration. 🙂 And I’ve been feeling the same way about fall! Not quite ready, but with growing excitement for fall clothes. It was cool enough to pull out leggings and a long sweater with my skort and tee today.

Ahhh, NaNoWriMo! I’d love to do it! But only if I finish edits on another novel first. Which looks next to impossible. But if I can… NANOWRIMO. I love it. As for holidays, I’m a Christmas fan, and midnight Mass is one of my favorite events in the whole year.

That’s great to hear, thank you! I do struggle sometimes, finding the best clothes for someone of my height – so it’s nice to hear from another tall girl. 🙂
Good luck with your writing!

When does the next season of Job Hunters come out?? I’m getting antsy with all these questions that are unanswered!!

I am SO ready for fall! It’s still warm here, but it’s starting to cool down. And just… I’m already itching for NaNoWriMo. An idea popped into my head a week or so ago and I want to get to writing SO BAD!

That jacket is fantastic!

I love fall. I really like the “in-between” seasons. It’s not freezing cold but not super hot either. It’s the best. I’m just happy that soon I’ll be able to wear legwarmers.

You and me both, girl. 🙂

What even are seasons? i live in South Florida and seasons literally don’t exist. There is summer and then slightly colder summer.
