Yellow, Spots and Dots

I love fall, but the earlier sunset is killing my outfit photo-taking lately. I used to be able to get them in after Jona went to sleep, but now not only is he going to bed a little later, but it's also dark a lot earlier. I know, these are real problems I'm having...

Anyway, I did have some luck with them over the weekend; this is what I wore to the blogger meetup I talked about yesterday. This was another easy swap-out outfit. Earlier in the week I wore the yellow cardigan, leopard scarf, and polka dot shoes with my black dress, and I liked the combination so much I traded the dress for jeans and a t-shirt. Easy peasy. 

Do you like the earlier sunset or are you missing the longer days of summer?

  1. Ack, give me back the summer hours! It's getting harder and harder to get up in the morning too. Love these jeans though - especially with the pointy-toe flats. Cute.

  2. Thanks! Yes, the mornings....ugh. I never, ever used to be a snooze-button user, but now I can't get myself up without just one 5 minute snooze.

  3. Honestly though... it is hard when the days get shorter for outfit photos... and colder!! I'm not looking forward to that part at all. Standing outside and shivering while Martin snaps my outfit?! Lol, why do I do it to myself?! And dots + leopard - so cute, looking gorgeous Shea!! xo

  5. I'm the opposite, I try to do my photos in the morning before work and lately that's been tough too! I use my parents driveway when I drop off Oliver, but it still isn't super light out there! Oh well. I love this look, I still adore the shoes!! And I have a pullover sweater that color, but I'm totally coveting a cardigan!

  6. I wish I could do them in the morning--my clothes always look so wrinkle free in the morning! But it's still dark outside when I leave the house...yuck. And thanks! I love this color--I used to have a pullover sweater this color too, but it was too short so I had to get rid of it :(

  7. Love this outfit and the way you matched the polka dot shoes with the leopard scarf. I'm starting to miss being able to take the kids to the park after work. It seems like by the time I get home and get things settled and put away, it's already dark.

  8. Those shoes are so cute! I like LOft as well, and love the BF jeans. I love the mustard cardi with the leopard.

  10. Thanks Megan! I know, I agree completely. By the time I get home, get dinner ready, and we eat, it's getting too dark to take a walk. Could we just get fall weather with summer daylight?

  11. Thanks Jess! I love Loft too--I worked there a few years ago and let me tell you, it was dangerous!! Thanks for coming by!

  13. I love your scarf! Leopard is really IN right now. I used to live in Overland Park for over 22 years. What a small world! We just moved to Iowa about a year and a half ago. I miss it!

  16. I love to see things cute and casual - the polka dot flats are the cutest!

    And I hear you on the early sunsets. They are the worst, along with the rain and somehow I've only managed to take two sets of outfit photos in the last 9 days. wonder what I'll be blogging next week, haha...

  18. Thanks! Yes I know--we've had a few rainy days here lately too and it's killing the outfit photos! I don't know what I'll do when it gets dark even earlier. Yeesh.
