Sunshine, Black and Stripes

The sun was too pretty not to capture as it generated warmth into one of the last few days before it gets unbelievably cold. Winter is right around the corner in Wisconsin and there have already been a few snowfalls in the northern areas. I am not a winter person. It looks beautiful in the movies, but it becomes brown slush here. It is not fun. But at least I get to enjoy the lovely fall weather and the sunshine before the rain starts to freeze and being outside becomes unbearable.

Walter played in the leaves while I got a few pictures. My cat, Napoleon, watched from inside while longing to hunt mice in the backyard. He roams too far sometimes which makes me think he may run away at some point. I’ll miss his nighttime cuddles if he does.

    That is a super cute skirt. I don’t wear skirts too often, but when I do, I like them to stand out in a crowd like this one does.

    Nice designed skirt there. Love the colour of it. Really does stand out.

    This is such a pretty outfit. I’ve always been a fan of stripes. Cute kitty too! I also have an orange cat 🙂

    The whole outfit is so cute on you. I need to wear stripes more because that skirt is so frisky, I love it to death.

    I’m a huge fan of black and white combos! So easy to coordinate, especially because I travel often and don’t want to bring too much.

    Such a classy outfit! I love the black and white stripes. They can be worn any time of year. I don’t think stripes ever go out of style.

    I love that skirt. The stripes are so simple yet so elegant. I have a skirt that looks similar- it’s one of my favorite wardrobe staples.

    This truly is a cute outfit and perfect for the fall weather. I love the black sweater over the black and white striped dress. It looks so cute with these black boots. I also think this is a great example of mixing and matching the clothing too. Thanks for sharing the cute outfit.

    Love this outfit. The stripy skirt is very playful design and the sweater over it very practical as if the weather near you is anything like here in Ireland then you will most definitely need it.
