Autumn is taking its sweet time getting here, for which I am very grateful. The nights and mornings are definitely getting chillier, but I still get to drive to work in a glorious sunrise, and I leave the office in warm sunshine.
And it’s October? What?
While it’s too cool now for skirts and bare legs, it’s still too warm for the full jeans-and-boots uniform I’ll be wearing until the sun comes back to our corner of the world. However, I’d finally leveled up as a thrift-store-shopper and landed a pair of taupe suede Merona boots at a local consignment store ($18!), and I didn’t want to wait for more appropriate weather to try them out. Brown boots! Finally! I paired them with my olive tights and a brown-print dress:
Dress: Ann Taylor Outlet
Tights: Hue, from Macy’s
Boots: thrifted, from Target (Merona)
The result is…a little bottom-heavy, I guess, but I love these boots and that dress so much that I don’t really mind. Plus these boots are silent. If I get picked for the Hunger Games or have to avoid a zombie plague, these are the boots I’ll wear. If ninjas ever wore brown, I would be one.
Have you landed a perfect find for your fall wardrobe? Or is there something you’re still hunting for?
