I’ve been MIA the past two days due to a killer migraine. I’m finally feeling better and enjoying the cooler temps. It is still in the low 80s during the day but early morning and evening are cool and pleasant. I love that I’m getting some extra wear out of my dresses but I admit I am ready for tights and coats! I ordered this pink beauty in the Kate Spade Surprise Sale today.
My favorite thing about Fall is all the beautiful colors. I’m fortunate enough to live in an area surrounded by mountains full of vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows. On Saturday afternoon, Jake and I headed to my parents house for some photos. They live on an acre of land right at the base of a mountain. This time of year, their yard is full of beautiful leaves. One of my fondest childhood memories is when my Dad would rake up big piles of leaves for me to jump in. Oh what I wouldn’t give to me 5 again 🙂 What are your favorite things about Fall?
Today’s outfit is an easy, casual look that is perfect for Fall. My green floral dress is sold out from Red Dress Boutique but I linked a similar one from Nordstrom. I also love the floral print on this dress. (*Note that Lush is a junior’s brand so their sizing runs a bit smaller than women’s.) I’m also wearing my favorite brown floppy hat. I have never been a hat person but I seriously can’t stop wearing this one! My hat, belt, and sunglasses are linked below.
This year I was set on finding a great pair of knee-high boots. Pretty much everything I found was a flat riding boot. I’m only 5’0 so I rarely wear flats. All the boots I did find with heels were 4+ inch stiletto heels. No thanks. Another problem I kept running into is all the knee-high boots were too tall on my leg (again, I’m only 5’0). I honestly looked at over 10 websites but could not find a brown, knee-high, petite friendly boot with a modest heel. I started searching back in September and finally found these Journee boots a couple weeks ago. They’re also available on Amazon for only $45! They come in three different colors (I’m wearing the “chestnut” color) and are available in a wide calf option.
My handbag is the Kate Spade Olive Drive Brigette in the color rustic toffee. I love everything about this bag. I bought it in red last season and I’m so glad they’ve come out with these great Fall colors. It has a lot of good pockets and a crossbody strap as well. To top it all off, THAT BOW! Love at first sight 🙂
