Happy Monday!!

Thanks for all the wonderful feedback on my last post! I'm glad that my food posts are helpful. More to come.. :)

I got really lucky!! Before the Seattle rain came and hit us... I was able to squeeze this outfit in for photos before the gloom. Yay!! This lovely oxblood (name reminds me of oxtail.. o_0) wine top I got from the Rack has a slight asymmetrical hemline almost like hi-low but not too pronounced. I paired it with some grey skinny jeans and pumps. There's also a mini story behind this outfit, I originally wanted to wear a mens grey button-up shirt over the top (left opened) and skinny-belted at the waist with the sleeves 3/4 quarter rolled up. But unfortunately my future bro-in-law's grey button-up was slightly too big on me and none of Hub's dress shirts fit either. Oh well.. I tried.. would've looked nice together! haha..

Anyways - I also did my hair in my most simplest half-do hairstyle when I am in a no-fuss mood. My eye makeup has been my go-to lately almost everyday.. basically I did a smokey bronze with a dash of gold shimmer. I just love it, it goes with a lot of my outfits. I might have to do a makeup tutorial on it soon. It is really easy! ;)

How has the Autumn weather been treating you?

  17. happy Monday :)

    the wine color is gorgeous and so perfect for fall!
    I'm jealous at the fall scene you have over at Seattle with all the fallen leaves, I think NYC forgot all about fall since the leaves are green and intact still. ha.
