Autumn Inspirations, Vintage Style


I really love Autumn. It is probably my favorite season out of the year and I’ve not really experienced a true Autumn since I was a wee thing living in New England.

I think one of my Instagram followers, Hansen Downes had the loveliest thing to say about the Autumn season and I wanted to share her words…

There’s a certain inspiration found in outlasting the overcast. In the process, let it slow you down and be a source of introspection.

All the vintage clothes above are currently in the shop in the AUTUMN VINTAGE section which has some of my favorite pieces for Fall! The inspiration images are all from Pinterest in my … the spirit of autumn board!

On the Set: Cheerful Weather for the Wedding

Cheerful Weather for the Wedding

Cheerful Weather for the Wedding isn’t all that great of a movie to be honest, but I’m not a huge movie buff and I’ll totally watch a horrible movie just for the gorgeous clothes. Cheerful Weather for the Wedding is one of those movies. All right, it’s not horrible. In fact I rewatch it time and time again because it is just SO BEAUTIFUL to look at! Oh, if I could have any movie’s wardrobe right now, it would have to be this movie!

And the house! And that blue wall! And that greenhouse. I feel like I’m in this movie lingering around in spirit.

Every single one of Felicity Jones’ outfits I just tingle a bit inside over. In fact, last summer I spent a good 2 months searching for 1930s shorts just like hers in the movie. I haven’t even worn them yet, but find them I did! Now if only I could her 30s floral bias cut gown. Gah!!!

I read on A Bloomsbury Life that this outfit above is all authentic vintage pieces from the 1930s. In fact many of the clothes were actually! Her wedding gown was made for the film though. The floral gown is also vintage. Don’t you just dance a little inside knowing these old garments got another shot at life and in such a gorgeous movie no less?

Is it too early for Fall?

Autumn Outfit Ideas // Adored Vintage Blog

I’m taking a little break from packing, cleaning, and organizing and browsing around Pinterest while enjoying Chinese takeout. I should consider “Pinning” a hobby as I spend so much time on Pinterest gathering inspiration and sourcing ideas.

As each day passes I am getting more and more excited about my move to Portland! Last night I was laying in bed browsing through Etsy and Pinterest for Autumn clothing and shoes and Fall outfit ideas. I have not lived in a state that has a proper Autumn or Winter in YEARS.

Literally. I have lived in the Southern part of the US for over 15 years! As I was clicking through coats, sweaters, boots, and wool skirts…my head was just spinning! So excited for cool weather, rainy evenings with soup on the stove, and the scent of cinnamon and spice in the air.

If you haven’t already, go browse my Pinterest Boards as I have been spending quite a lot of time pinning outfit inspiration for Autumn in the Fashion | Autumn board and the Fashion | Women board which is where I have all the images above pinned!
