Outfit: Lavender & Chocolate

 When I arrived in Wichita, Kansas after a five hour long drive from Dallas, Texas in a behemoth 15-seater van, I was slightly disappointed that autumn had not yet settled here either. I was hoping to escape Southern California's scathing heat and fall into another season in Dallas, but that was not to be. So, I set my sights on Wichita, hoping it would grant me my wish. Alas, my whims were denied. I was not going to allow my disappointment to dampen my time in this beautiful city, however. It was much quieter and calmer here, and I discovered that I had really taken a liking to Wichita. I even pondered moving here in the next few years. While Southern California is beginning to look more and more like a desert due to the severe drought, Wichita was a lush green paradise to my sore eyes.

The weather was just slightly cool enough that I could get away with wearing this outfit without dripping in sweat. I no longer avidly shop at Forever 21 as I used to in my younger days, but once in a while, I'll venture in out of curiosity and I'll find something that really catches my eye - like this lavender blouse. I love it paired with this chocolate brown skirt of soft woolen material. In lieu of the upcoming season, I'll be wearing more outfits like this. And it really makes me happy because autumn is my favorite season! On another note, while I snapped these photos on my tripod in my relatives' backyard, my cousin was busy setting up the grill for the barbecue.

P.S. During the road trip, we passed through Oklahoma and my heart ached at the sight of the bountiful meadows along the way.

What I wore:
Blouse: Forever 21 (similar)
Skirt: vintage thrifted
Tights: Walmart
Heels: vintage via Etsy
