You know when you have those moments when you're completely indecisive or just thoroughly confused? I'm sure we all do--I have them on a frequent basis especially when it comes to adult life decisions like career wise, blog wise, personal stuff. It's just too much pressure to choose something that will affect future outcomes that may or may not be potentially good for you. And now that I'm a recent grad still figuring out what I'm doing with myself, I'm learning that a lot of times the only way to truly understand what you want is by making mistakes. Well, at least that's how I see it. Without these mistakes, I'll never really know whether I want something or not until I realize how it affects me negatively, which may take a brief mental toll on me but that's part of learning life. Anyways, that's my little life lesson of the day, especially since I've been going through a lot lately and I'm sure we all have those moments as well when we're in an emotional slump over life. We all need someone to remind us that it'll all be okay. Just remember to breathe.

So to tie that brief introduction to this week's blog post, I guess you can say my indecisiveness played a part in my outfit. The weather is totally trolling us this season with random days of tundra temperatures and other days of nice warmth. And as I've mentioned in my previous post, you'll definitely be seeing me in my skirts and dresses for a while to grasp onto the bare legs look for as long as the temperatures will allow me. I got this dress over the summer at a Californian thrift shop and fell in love with its shift shape and vertical stripes. So to make it a little more "fall", I paired it with my tan thigh highs to keep the colors light. This faux shearling coat was probably the most genius thing I found at another thrift shop because it is so unbelievably warm and I probably won't stop wearing it. But I added a green anorak over to create a faux parka while still being able to wear both pieces separately. A very cozy and simple look for a warm fall Sunday afternoon (which is exactly when I had this shoot).

Stay cozy,
Mai Sunshine

Style tip: Don't be afraid to keep your sandals around for the fall season either. Wearing socks with them is perfectly okay and definitely this season's fashion trend.
