One might consider this as a fall outfit, but these pictures were taken one day before my birthday in spring and I had given a lot of thought into age-appropriateness of clothing during those days. I hope it was just a sickness, that flew by quickly… (it didn’t, it took until June, when I finally got my fringe back). Anyway, I was wondering, if I could still get away with wearing mini dresses, even if they had fall colours and were worn in the middle of May. But, the weather  actually seemed like October weather and, so I was drawn to fall colours like mustard and black, I just couldn’t help it.

The dress is a vintage 1990’s dress, which I wanted to sell in my shop (because it is short), but decided to keep (because it is short). I think it matches well with some clothes I own and I might even try to wear it in summer and style it summerly (no, I won’t).

Well, I had this post sitting around here as a draft since May, so I think it is only fair to finally post it in October, I guess you wouldn’t notice anyway with all the fall colours I am wearing (okay, green leafs and ducklings…).

 

Thinking about age, I thought this post could be used to share a few stylish bloggers over 30 from my reader:

Vintage Jumpsuits

I normally stay away from jumpsuits. I just feel a bit odd wearing them, maybe too childish, I don’t know. Although I do like them on other people. But, there are times, when they are just the right thing to wear. Here I am wearing a vintage jumpsuit with a floral print from the early 90’s. I was still feeling a bit under the weather that day, when we went to the forest picking maroons. A skirt wouldn’t be that apropriate for that kind of action and I’m not a pants person. The jumpsuit, that was sitting around in my shop, came to my mind and it was just the most comfy thing to wear, yet girly enough for my liking, so I stole it just for the day.

I love to pick maroons in the fall, and I love to eat them. This time, we didn’t luck out so much, because half of them were already worm-eaten, so I guess, one should pick them a bit earlier in the fall. But it was fun anyway. I loved the vinaries and I loved the view and dramatic autumnal skies.

Jumpsuit: Vintage from the early 90’s

Cardigan & tights: old H&M

Belt: thrifted

Shoes: Converse
