Apples and Burgundy

Autumn is finally here in full force and you can tell by the leaves changing color and by how packed the Apple orchards are :) I love the Autumn season because everywhere you turn there is a burst of color - bright orange pumpkins, red delicious apples, yellow leaves...A little fun fact about me - my name Thu when translated in English means Autumn. Therefore this season always hold a special place in my heart. This past weekend the family and I spent our Saturday at a local farm for their annual Autumn festival. Autumn is never the same unless we indulge ourselves with hand-picked apples, fresh baked apples donuts and yummy apple cider - all made fresh and grown on the farm. I think I may have eaten 7 donuts by myself but who's counting ;)
My favorite part about the Autumn season is that you can start to bring out dark colors from your closet. The temperature was in the high 70s this weekend so I wanted to choose something light and cool. This H&M top was a recent purchase from the clearance rack. It did not come with a belt so when I first saw it I thought - wow, this shirt is huge, plus the deep burgundy color was more appropriate for the Fall season but the material is so light I would freeze to death. But for $7 bucks I took the chance and purchase it anyways. Turned out Saturday was the perfect day to wear it. The weather was warm and we were going to a farm which will be bursting with all the Fall colors, I was sure I would blend in well.
I found a belt from another dress that matched well with the cream part of the shorts and used that to cinch the top. I really liked how it turned out creating an hour-glass shape and cascading ripples down the side. The top came out nicer than I expected!

Of course - mini me wanted in on some photo-posing action as well. She is wearing an H&M shirt that was quite long so I turned it into a shirt dress. She loves wearing her faux fur boots from Old Navy and folded them down herself!
