Will Someone Wake Me Up

Black Boyfriend Blazer - GAP ($20)
Blue Plaid Tunic - Ross, years ago ($6)
Ribbed Sweater Leggings - Gift from Mom
Brown Leather Riding Boots - Vintage Ralph Lauren, Goodwill ($10)

It's only September 7 and already fall has arrived in my fair beach town. That meant today I got to delve a little deeper into my closet and dust off (somewhat literally) last season's boots. With nary a sliver of sun out today, I opted for what I'll call a "professional lumberjack" sort of look. I kept warm, was comfy still managed to look presentable for tutoring. Also, I felt like I was being really adventurous since I opted to go with brown boots. Typically I'd wear a black boot with this sort of outfit, but the brown made it a little less predictable and still seemed to work.
The cooling trend will continue this week (high of 63 tomorrow!), so I guess I'll be experimenting even more with some fall outfits. My boots from Target have yet to arrive, but you can be sure that once they do I will be incorporating them into my wardrobe ASAP. As a bonus, here's a photo of what I wore last Sunday, but forgot to post.
Black/White Printed Dress - Handmade Vintage, Goodwill ($2)
Black/White Peep-toe Slingbacks - Merona, Gift from friend

As you can see, over the weekend the weather was much more cooperative, so I was able to wear this newly acquired vintage dress. I really am in love with the zany print, and since the color palette is neutral, I think I'll be able to pair it easily with other elements as it gets colder. While I'm kind of bummed to realize that summer really is over, anyone else out there psyched for fall/winter layering and all around coziness?


  1. Wow, those boots are so cool! Love the laces on them. I'm a new follower.
