Panera Dates & Corduroy

button up: j. crew, skirt: thrifted, shoes & belt: goodwill, purse: vintage, flea market
Happy October! I'm pretty sure September went by quicker than any month has so far lately. I feel like just yesterday I turned 18! But that was almost a month ago. Aghh I really don't know how I feel about time flying so quickly! Just slow down a minute, k thx! After I visit the colleges up northwest, I'm probably going to get all my applications filled out and send them... It's good that we had to already write our personal statement essay in English. I think I like mine enough to actually send it in. So that's one thing out of the way... Now just about a hundred other things!But anyway, yesterday Nat and I spent the afternoon together and went to Panera Bread for dinner... It was his first time, but honestly... who could possibly deny the goodness of a restaurant known for it's bread? That's right, no one! ;) That place is bomb. We then proceeded to go home and goof off the rest of the night...which consisted of singing, beatboxing, and free style rapping for a good amount of time...followed by other amusing activities in which we have very much proven that we can make ourselves laugh for hours on end. It was pretty silly, I gotta say...hahaha. :)
I think this outfit can be considered by first fall outfit! I'm thrilled to finally say this! I think the temperatures are finally going down - well, at least for now. It was around 76 degrees yesterday, which was actually very pleasant! I thought it was the perfect opportunity to take out my corduroy skirt and chambray button up. :) Love it. Have a beautiful Saturday! I'll see you soon with my giveaway, finally! xx

  10. MMM...Panera really is the best! Every time I get a pick two meal and they ask me if I want an apple, chips or bread all I want to do is say, "Duh the bread!!" Oh and I walk past a Panera everyday on my way to work. Its bad:)

    Your first fall outfit is adorable! I love corduroy for autumn.

  12. Darling outfit - the lighting was really nice; must have been a mix of light around sun-set and the street lights or you have mastered your camera settings!! Love it! xo

  14. Oh goodness, the title of this post contains two things that are so dear to my heart, haha. Corduroy is one of my favorite things about fall, so I may just have to break out my own red corduroy skirt in the near future! Looking lovely as always, lady :)
