#OOTD Forcing Fall

Hello fabulous ones!
The calendar says it's finally fall, but the thermostat here in Southern California says the calendar has another think comin'!

Fall is my FAVORITE time of year, so I've decided to forge ahead, even though I'm still running the AC. 

It all starts with the's an #OOTD that pretty much exemplifies my fall fashion:

I LOVE tunics in fall! Mostly because I love dresses (except sweater dresses, which I always find get too lumpy and hot by the day's end) and most tunics fit me like a dress, since I'm just under 5'2". See where this tunic hits the model vs where it hits me?

It pretty much never gets cold enough here to require boots. I love them and usually buy a pair but I decided to skip it last fall and never noticed the difference. So today it's leggings with patent ballet flats.

I was drawn to this tunic (by Susan Graver, you know how I love my QVC!) not only for the comfort factor but because the print reminds me of the work of Vera Neumann, one of my favorite designers. My mom wore a lot of Vera when I was a kid and I guess it made an impression. I also like that a fall tunic looks great on women of every size and shape.

The bag is Betsey Johnson (yes, from DWTS) aka my FAVORITE FASHION DESIGNER OF ALL TIME. OF ALL TIME!

I have my eye on you, Betsey bag. You're next!

While I love fashion, I hate hunting for clothes at the mall, so I always order things online. I have more great tunics and looks coming in the mail, so stay tuned!

Leggings: Bally shapewear legging, I got these in a swag bag at a blogger lunch hosted by the beautiful Monique of Curves and Chaos four years ago and they're still going strong. I think they were from Macy's?

So...remember this?

Of course you do. Only, this scene? Not in the original book AT ALL. Not the running, not even the braces. That's right. NO RUNNING. "Run, Forrest!" is not in the book.

And Jenny? Yeah, that whole situation is WAY different, too.

That's right, it's time for BOOK VS MOVIE! Gump-style.
