With our days feeling shorter now that fall has settled in, I am drawn to basking in the sunlight during the day whenever possible. This beautiful scene is a corner I frequent pass without giving it a second glance, but today I couldn’t help but notice the lovely light shining inside. All the more reason to climb up into a windowsill to enjoy the sun and mimic the brightness in my sunny lace top.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I last wore this top with colored pants for a warm summer look. I toned down the brightly colored top by adding my gray skirt and leggings to embrace this top a la fall. Brights, even neons, are absolutely workable for fall and winter by adding in layers and cooler colored pieces. And, as always, wear what you love and toss the rules. If you love wearing all neon in fall and winter, I say embrace it and own it.
2) I generally do not wear necklaces that are the same color as my top because I think they are hard to see well, but I really liked this combination with this outfit. Visually, it was easy to separate the necklace from the top due to the lace of the top versus the beads of the necklace. I’m always finding myself challenging my own thoughts about getting dressed and accessorizing. A metaphor for life? Probably. Fashion has a way of finding the unexpected and surprising us. Accessorizing lesson: it’s easy to get stuck in our ways, but it’s lovely to step out of them sometimes too.
Side note: Ann Taylor. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. I’m a huge fan of their final sale section. This $5 necklace is a real gem!
