My Style // Autumn Uniform


Autumn Uniform // Bubby and Bean

My regular readers know that I shed many a tear on the day we turn the clocks back each year.  For this summer girl, an extra hour of sleep (which I've now come to find out doesn't exist when you have a child anyway) will never be worth four months of daily darkness that begins in the late afternoon. I'm also not a cold weather person - give me sunshine on my face and green grass under my bare feet, please. So no, late fall and winter here in the midwest just don't do it for me. All my complaining aside though, there is one thing I like about the cooler, shorter days - fall fashion. My strong affection for sundresses and sandals doesn't mean that I don't sincerely appreciate a great jacket, comfy flannel shirt, cute hat, or a chic pair of boots. And on this particular day, right before the afternoon sun set, I was able to don all four of these things.

Trask Madison Boots

I don't have a whole lot to say about this outfit, so I'll let the pictures do the talking. This is a great example of my late autumn uniform, the key components of which I listed above. These boots in particular are a new obsession of mine (and "obsession" and "obsessed" aren't words I usually throw around nonchalantly). Since I received them, I've worn them constantly, and maybe even thought about them a lot when they weren't on my feet. They're insanely gorgeous, and they're oddly comfortable for having heels (something I don't often opt for these days). Made by Trask, an artisanal footwear line inspired by "the independent spirit of the American plains," they're called the Madison Boots, and they're pretty incredible. Check back by here tomorrow when I'll be talking about them a little more, and also offering you guys the chance to win a pair of your own. (Woot!)

  1. I think the comfort of having a fall uniform helps make the transition to the time change easier. It's always tough to say goodbye to the long summer days!

  6. What great boots and a great jacket! I seriously need to stop in F21 more often!
    My daily wardrobe is jeans and a sweater. And in the summer it's jeans and a v neck tee. I like to mix it up...lol :)

  8. I'm not much of a cold weather person either. I love the first few snows, but I start to get sick of it quickly after that. I live in flannel, beanies, scarves, cardigans, and several layers of tights and leggings all winter long.

  9. I absolutely love, love your style!! And yes, to fall layers. Though I definitely feel ya on the weather part, here on the west coast we're all about the rain, which I could do without!! I'm all about the sunny weather too! xoxo

  10. I absolutely love your style, Melissa - and I think I love it all the more because we don't get as many chances to see it as we used to, so it makes the sneak peeks into your wardrobe all the more special. I love how well you pull of casual styles and make them look so put together. And that beanie! I've been searching for one just like it (but black, of course) for what feels like forever.
    xox,

  11. from another warm-weather-loving girl - I also lament the end of Summer. But this is exactly the way to get into the chillier seasons! I wear a lot of this look in Fall and Winter - and you make it look so appealing here - I might actually be looking forwars to the cooler temps.
    Love that hat, have to get myself one!
