Falling Birds

Hello everyone!
I shot this outfit post around last week as we were approaching sunset, and the light was gorgeous. I barely edited the colours, it was naturally pink-purple-ish like that :) Makes it look a bit emo compared to my usual outfit posts though! haha
 Anyway, even though here in Indonesia we have summer all year long, but fall is already in the air in some parts of the world. So, why not make it today's theme!

For me, every time I hear fall or autumn, I instantly think of earth-tone colours aka the colours that come from natural things around us, like soil, leaves, sky. I will never get tired of these colour schemes! They can create that warm, friendly atmosphere :)
 The first thing that came into my mind when I was planning this outfit was the pants! I think the olive green colour is really "autumn-y" and provides a good starting point for the rest of the outfit.

After that I decided to go with dark colour palettes to match the pants and theme. I chose this bird prints top so my outfit won't be too plain, and I also tucked it just a little bit behind the belt buckle (front tuck), so that the brown colour from the belt can pop up. Besides, wearing a belt will also create a waistline :) Just remember to wrap the belt around the thinnest part of your waist!
 For shoes, I chose this Michael Kors slingback sandals that I got from Shopbop. They are very very comfortable and casually stylish! I'm sooo eyeing the brown ones! Last time I checked, Shopbop still carried my size :D Wait for me brownies!
 For bag, I opted for my 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Medium Satchel that I also got from Shopbop. I LOVE it so much, I think it really adds style and class to an outfit! And the medium satchel is just the purrrfect size for me, because it's roomy enough to fit all my everyday essentials (which is a lot, and thus made me scratched the mini size off the list), and the bag itself is already quite heavy so I don't think I can handle the large size.

It also comes with an adjustable 19in/48cm drop bag strap which is removable! Me like a bag with optionshandles and a strap. 

If you find it interesting, you can go to Shopbop for more colour and style options! :)
 To finish off my look, I wear my brown fedora hat to match the colour of my belt. Plus it's great to cover my black roots! Ah, that reminds me to book a salon appointment. -___-
Can't get over the colour of the sky.
