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.
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!)
Do you have a fall "uniform" like I do? Or do you tend to mix things up this time of year?
