the striped dress & olive handbag

down to my favorite last three months of the year!

i am so thrilled to report that the temperature has dropped here in Austin, TX. finally!!! not only is this time of the year my favorite, it also means more (pleasant) shoots without all the sweat! i am a fall girl at heart and the thought of it makes me so happy -- PSL, hot cocoa, peppermint, scarves, boots, decor, lights, casseroles, pecan pie, sweaters/jackets, thanksgiving, christmas, searching for the perfect gift, and FAMILY! ah, it's always the simple things in life. 

the it color handbag for fall: OLIVE. when this olive handbag came out for fall, i didn't wait long to get it. good thing, because this color is already sold out! my first olive handbag. and of course, it's a Henri Bendel. it is the perfect mini bag (with a removable crossbody strap) that isn't too small, as most are. olive is a pretty versatile color and can be worn with: white, blush, black, anything striped, and any neutrals, but i welcome suggestions as i'm a newbie. this is a great alternative from my B&W/boring colors. i choose to pair it with this striped dress (hello pockets & midi length) and threw in a little pattern play into the mix with some... leopard print. i use to dislike leopard print but as i've aged i've become more drawn to it in small doses. wait until you see my next outfit post! until then, thanks for stopping by! 

side note: going to Austin City Limits (ACL) music festival this Saturday as a #firsttimer! totally not my type of thing, but i have to experience it. hope i survive the madness.
