In Check

Jacket: The Limited (old, similar); Top: Gap; Skirt: Gap; Booties: Nordstrom (run a size small)

These boots removed all feeling and skin from my toes after two wears. The perfect way to ring in fall. With a boot that runs a size too small but looks too cute to stop wearing for a stroll through fall leaves! 

I actually associate fall with clothing that's uncomfortable. New boots that need to be broken in. Stiff jackets that satisfy transitional weather desires (rainy, windy, but kind of muggy). Wool skirts. Tights that make dry skin feel even worse. And sweaters that are either too small, too big, or too scratchy. When winter hits, everyone has given up hope and it's comfy socks, jeans or slacks, and comfortable long sleeves with down jackets and blanket scarves. Fall is for being stylish and less full of Christmas cookies. And so, discomfort and the wool itches aside, it remains my favorite time of year to dress. You get to layer, bring out the nice leather jackets and boots and bags. You get to add on scarf after scarf. Your prettiest long-sleeves are back in vogue. I could go on.

But instead, I'll wish you a happy, completely fall-y Monday!
