In Bonn they love making puns that play on their name, so obviously I had to pay tribute to that! While the Saturday I was there was freezing (yes, my feet were very cold in my last outfit post, but I had forgotten to pack socks) but Sunday was all the good things you associate with autumn: crisp, clear, and a with sunlight dappling the buildings and the leaves. When these pictures were taken I was having one of my moments of "everything's so beautiful and I love being in the sun....

P.S. Sweaters + dresses + <3
P.P.S these boots! this jacket! this scarf! Things I bought two years ago and had to leave in Canada--I thought for a couple of months but it turned into a year and a half. I am so happy to be reunited with them :D

dress: River Island, sweater: H&M, necklace: gift, boots: El Naturalista, jacket: Gant, scarf: the Hudson's Bay Company

Love the pose striking on! Really does look like you were lovin' the beautiful day & scenery, Bonn looks beautiful, those buildings & pretty park... must visit Germany asap. Good job w/ the layers, you look comfy & cute & those boots add a great touch of color for a nice change from the black boots + black tights I've been seeing lately on the blog world.

The Daily Fashionista said...

That day seemed like a perfect day. Can't get much better than sunny crisp cool autumn days:) So how's that layering treating you? It seems to be going swimmingly!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...
