Favorite Fall Looks

Happy winter!  And hey, for those of us in the northern hemisphere, the days are going to start getting longer from here!  It's a good news day!  Wahoo!

Confession: I honestly wasn't sure how many fall favorites I would be able to come up with going into this season, but there's quite a few that I have!  I knew that I could style and accessorize a few looks, but I genuinely wasn't sure about catching great foliage and whatnot in my photos.  The mountains have some great colors on the trees, but Denver can be a little hit or miss.  And I'm from Pennsylvania, so I really know how gorgeous fall can be, so I can be a bit of snob about Denver autumn.  I was so wrong this year...towards the end of October everything just POPPED and it was my favorite fall, aesthetically speaking, since I moved here.  

This was from my birthday post, that happened to coincide with the first day of fall this year.  It's so hard not to pick this as one of the best looks from fall, because not only are the colors super autumn-y but you can tell the grass is dying because it's becoming straw like, which happens in fall.  Read more about this outfit and my thoughts on starting a new age HERE.  
This.  Dress.  !!!  I got this from ModCloth over the summer and am completely in love with it.  This dress comes in red too, and almost two years ago I ordered that one but something about it I just didn't love-though the fit was awesome.  When the yellow version came out I couldn't help it but fall in love, and this one suits my personal style more.  I meant to wear it, like, ALL summer but that was never to be the case.  A bachelor party got canceled, I realized an engagement party was themed and Hawaiian, and so forth!  Though I wish it didn't sit on my hanger for so long, it really is such a great fall dress too that I suppose the wait was worth it.  

I wore this to the Denver History Museum because they were doing an exhibit of popular toys from the 1950s through the 1980s.  It was starting to get chilly out, hence the boots and cardigan.

I dress like a I don't have to act like one ;)

This was one of the best vintage finds of my life.  About a year ago I nabbed it on eBay for like, $20. This should have been at least $120 so this was a very lucky find!  How great of a fall skirt is it too?  Usually I get stuck on pairing it with a maroon color red, but I'm glad I branched out a bit and wore it with this olive shirt and shoes instead.  

This is one of my favorite skirts ever and while mint and green are not "typical" fall  colors, this whole shoot was during the time period where all of the leaves were popping.  Read the post HERE.  

This is one of my newest vintage skirts!  Because it has so many colors in it, this is an easy one to convert for all seasons.  Here's the fall version and the original post is HERE.  

The fall dress that I thought was only a summer dress!  I LOVE this Tatyana dress and so thankful that I own it.  The photos had a natural haze to them and I'd call this one of the best fall posts that I had.  Read all about it HERE.  

This was taken on an early November day while I was out to brunch with girlfriends.  Since I hate acting like my life is perfect--something that happens accidentally when we utilize social media...especially involving clothes and such--I want to share what was REALLY going on in this photo: pain...and a lot of it.  I have a rare pain disorder that singles out the tissues in my rib cage.  A lot of people get it on a one time basis due to an isolated incident, but a few of us lucky ones have it on a more chronic level and can sneeze wrong and we have a flare up.  I was wheezing the day before, opted not to take my inhaler (picking a poison essentially, because I'm slightly allergic to my inhalers ::face palm::) and I paid BIG TIME for it the next day.  I had been in some pain off and on since August, but not in a big way.  At 9AM I felt like something was stabbing my chest and my year long streak of having a (huge) flare up was over.  I rallied, because in case it's not properly documented already that I'm kind of a tough cookie.  That said, this was a tough day..."tough cookie" or not.  I only share because if you're looking at fashion bloggers take daily photos of smiling faces and pretty me, not every day is golden so never feel bad about your life!!  This is insight into one of those "off days" that I had, though you could never tell in this photo.  

This was taken in November after my day and right before heading out for a girl's night.  This is one of my personal favorites from the fall.

This was taken amongst the last hour of daylight before heading out with friends, and is one of the last true fall looks I did this season.  Denver is tricky because it's hot until it's not, and then it's more winter.  But luckily we did have some true fall weather and foliage, so this year I got more than expected.  Below is a close up...including a shot of my NEW Instagram handle as I have recently changed it.  Because it's my full name, this will be the last time that I will ever change it as my name can follow me wherever this blog leads and with whatever projects I add on!  Happy winter again, folks!

I've recently added two pages to this blog, one that catalogues posts named after songs and another that catalogues all of the concert stories.  Click the links on to see for yourself!  Happy Friday!

  1. I love all these looks. You look really pretty! <3

    Wishing you an advance Merry Christmas!


  2. All such beautiful looks Lauren! I think my favorite is your birthday one. That skirt! (Insert heart eyes fave here.) Im glad the colors of Fall had finally poped for you this year! Im so used to the PA falls and have never really seen one apart from the east coast.

  3. Hello, dear Lauren Blair! Can't believe I have now some moments and can see your outfits, all lovely! November and December are so hectic months for us all! January will be better, for sure! I loved your outfits, all of them, the new vintage skirt, the boots for the museum and that amazing skirt with fall colors! And I love your hair! The shoes are perfect too, every pair, especially the boots, like I mentioned, so cool (I love boots)! I know what you mean, I am always stating that social media is making lives golden, everybody is a bank president :) with boats and so on, and I don't get it. I am sorry you felt so much pain due to the pain disorder that affects your rib cage, and you are right about the inhaler (one of my brothers used, now not anymore, it was painful to see him in pain). I don't take pictures everyday, just on Sundays :) I hope you are fine now and I hope you have an amazing Christmas time! Enjoy it a lot with family and friends!

  4. Love all of these looks! I love outfit roundups! My favorites are the ones with your two vintage skirts! Though that picture of you in front of the mural is really super awesome!

    Merry Christmas, gorgeous!

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Comedy and Tragedy

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.  I generally hate cliche quotes that can easily be slapped on memes or on the coffee mug of a basic b!tch, but I'm hard pressed to find a better phrase to describe my life currently.  In short: I've been having the most fun that I've ever had in the eight months since I moved to LA, but then the emergency breaks got slammed on my life when my mother fell gravely ill and passed away two weeks later on June 6th.  
I'm currently back in LA, after being gone for three weeks.  I'm looking forward to continuing my comedy journey, as I feel it will save me from myself at this time.  But while I'm functioning okay as I'm still in a great deal of shock and my current mode is auto pilot, certain hours of the day prove to me that I'm very jumbled up and confused about my mom's passing.  I suddenly don't know what I'm in for and I don't know what I'm doing.
Not knowing what I'm doing …
