I feel like the first day of pumpkin spice lattes is the Groundhog’s Day of fall. On September 1st everybody started doing the PSL happy dance, so naturally I was safe to assume it’s officially fall now… right?
Obviously. So like any logical human I immediately packed away my summer wardrobe. I mean, pumpkin spice is the harbinger of boots & sweaters… right?
After a few gray days it turned back into summer again… Starbucks how could you do this to me?! *insert all the silly emoji faces here*
It did actually turn into summer again, and I AM living out of a suitcase now… but I forgive you Starbucks 😉 Actually I broke up with the PSL last year after trying it with their (lame excuse for) coconut milk, but I’ll probably give it another shot now that they’re finally offering almond milk. Hemp lattes are my current addiction but I think PSLs are kind of mandatory for nostalgia’s sake!
Too much coffee talk? Okay on to the outfit. I scored both of these pieces on Madewell’s sale section at a steal and I can’t get enough of them. The eyelet fabric of the shirt is so breezy it almost feels like wearing nothing… which is obviously magical.
To balance out the boxy shape I wore it with these (equally magical) flares to add a bit of volume to my bottom half. I’m really in love with flares in general, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to wear them once it really is fall. I keep having high school flashbacks of flares + rain = soggy pants. Do you guys remember that?
I’m not ready to go back to soggy jeans & shredded hemlines, so I think I’m going to stick to cropped flares for fall and enjoy this pair while I still can.
