When Autumn Leaves Start to Fall

Morning! Hope everyone had a dazzling weekend.
My mom and I took these while I was in RI... had to take advantage of that exquisite foliage. The good news is, there are some trees here and there in New York. I've been seeing leaves dropping here and there. But my parents have a yard full of them. What is it about them that makes my heart feel so warm?
Anyway, this skirt is my new love! I've been searching for a true A-line shape for what seems like ages, and this is the closest thing I've found. A few things though- it is waaay short! I could never go bare-legged... it really requires some opaque tights to go with it. Also, I wouldn't recommend it for big-booty girls like myself. I know, I'm being a hypocrite. I'm wearing it. The thing is, I thought the hips were free-sized. Turns out, it comes with a pencil skirt-type lining underneath. One that my big booty did not fit into very comfortably. I actually had to take the lining out in order to make the skirt work. But now that it's gone, I'm happy and will wear it all over town!
I brought along this sweater to pair with the skirt, because I realized I hadn't worn it in forever. Before this picture was taken, it actually had another design element to it- some dark blue ruffles in the front. I decided these were unnecessary, and hindered the potential for me to wear it with other outfits. So I did some quick surgery... and now it's plainer, and I can wear with anything. Which I like :)
