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?

A Coat for this Weather

Hello there!

I feel the need to rant about how cold it has been the last couple of days. I guess I should be thankful that it is not snowing, so I guess I shouldn’t complain so much. With this cold weather, I have been living in this coat. Honestly, I wear it everywhere, everyday, all the time. I wanted this coat so bad because I have been into the athleisure look and wearing this with sneakers is my favorite look, especially for the weekend. img_8901img_8903img_8922img_8923img_8934img_8946img_8950img_8953

I received this coat for Christmas, but if you are looking for a similar coat I found one here and here.

Keeping Warm

Goodness Guys, it has been so cold lately! I think the weather is going to be in the 60s for one day… then right back to the 30s. Needless to say I have been living in my puffer coats lately. I actually got this one for Christmas. I love the color and the length. Clearly, on this particular day it was cold and windy which is why my hair is all over the place.

I just bought these boots in a flash sale on Hautelook/Nordstrom Rack. I have been on the hunt for a pair of navy blue over the knee boots, I found a pair at DSW but they made my thighs look huge (I am dramatic but it was not flattering). I was nervous to buy these expecting the same result. To my surprise they worked. A trick I have learned over the years, if you art attempting to slim your leg line keep to a monochromatic color scheme on your bottom half. Being that I have on dark jeans and dark boots it worked. A plus for these shoes is how comfortable and they keep you warm!

Loving Flannel

Hi Friends, as you can see it snowed. Can you tell I am not very enthusiastic about it. I am not a fan of the snow or the cold weather. Naturally, I am always freezing and when it is cold my body does not agree. Today was about 20 degrees and I thought I would have to wear a large coat on my way to this shoot, but surprisingly I was okay to walk to the car and get the shots. I have loved flannel for a long time now, but wearing it under a thick sweater was new for me. I needed the warmth so I went with it.. and I was comfortable. I will be stocking up on more of these little gems to keep me warm the rest of this winter.

Hi there, how are you? I surely enough I am at my parent’s house doing nothing, and living an amazing life 🙂

So I love this outfit, one of my favorites from this week. Honestly, I am loving styling all these outfit to share with you all. This outfit would look so cute with a pair of over the knee boots as well. I actually just ordered a pair from Nordstrom and now I wish I would have waited for them to arrive to wear with this outfit. Are you all excited for Christmas Eve tomorrow? Do you all have any Christmas Eve Traditions? I would love to hear what they are!
