Breaking out the Boots

I can’t believe October is almost over. It’s sad to see the summer go but now it’s time for boots, sweaters, and tights. Over the past couple of weekends, I started switching my wardrobe for the colder season. I felt it was necessary because I made a purchase and realized I had duplicates.

October is the month I officially start wearing boots. A few years ago, I found myself struggling to find a good balance of when to wear boots and cooler weather attire. I felt I was rushing the season when I tried to wear these items in September, plus it was still way too hot.  November, I would freeze trying to find different ways to make my sundresses work in the colder months. I decided enough was enough, October is a great month to make it happen and it seemed to work. Today it’s going to be 80 degrees, but I am wearing a short sleeve sweater and cropped pants.

This year I tried something a little different, and it seemed to work great. I pulled out my fall items and stored them on clothing racks so I can see what I have and what I need. I found I had no idea what I stored and found myself buying things I already had. I just got in an order from J.Crew and saw I ordered some of their tissue turtlenecks in colors I already had, and now have to go through the whole return process which could have been avoided.

Do you have a certain time you start wearing certain articles of clothing?

It has been much warmer than I think it should be for the fall. I have been buying things that are way too hot for this 80 degree weather. I am not letting that stop me. Notice, I am not wearing stockings 🙂 That is the great thing about wearing boots. They keep you warm with the weather changing hour by hour.

Bye Bye Boots

So, I haven’t told you all happy spring! With spring comes open toe shoes, summer dresses, and light jackets. The down size of spring, is we have to put our boots away for a few months. I love boots, but honestly I think I love spring more.

Now that we have said goodbye to our boots, let talk about this outfit. I bought this top to wear to a concert, but ended up wearing something else. I love a simple shirt like this because you can literally wear it so many ways. Tucked in, with leggings, or dress it up for work. I love adding a scarf in the spring because if you get a little chilly you always have something to wrap up in.

Just add a Blazer

Yesterday was such a nice day here. It was in the 60s and I was loving it! It made me even more excited for spring!!

Today’s outfit is simple yet well put together. When you add a blazer onto a simple outfit it pulls it all together adding a touch of class and chic-ness! I promise you con never go wrong with this look. If you don’t own a blazer get one. Seriously, all I have on is a long sleeve t-shirt and boots. When you add the blazer voila! I found this blazer last year in Target, yes Target. In my opinion it is a dupe for the JCrew school boy blazer.

Greetings! I have been under the weather for about a week now. I am so over it!!! I can admit I am dramatic when I am sick. I feel like I am not going to make it. Thankfully, I am on the other side of this cold and I sure it is not fatal, so life will be back to normal soon. If you remember a few months ago I wore this sweater in this post. This sweater is so warm and cozy. I love to wear it around the house, to work and on the weekends. I find blue to be a neutral color in my wardrobe, so this sweater goes with everything. I lucked up and found it at Burlington’s which means it was affordable! I have had these shoes for a few years now, here is a very similar pair. If you notice, I like to buy quality clothes that last though the seasons. I don’t tend to gravitate to trendy pieces, because I like to have my clothes for a few years. If you are looking for something similar I will try to link something close. Oh and these are my favorite Jeans again 🙂

 

 

Leaves are Turning

Happy Thursday,

It is really fall now. In this post I am surrounded by all the fall leaves. Honestly, that is my favorite part about fall. When the leaves turn they look so pretty! Makes me want to wrap up in a huge blanket and sit by the fire.

Over the weekend I was browsing through Nordstrom Rack, and came across this gorgeous scarf and I immediately thought about wearing it just like this! These boots I have had for years and they are the most comfortable boots I own. My parents bought them for me for my birthday a few years ago. They have held up so well!

What are your favorite things to do in the fall? Especially before it get really cold outside?
