while it may officially be fall, the weather hasn’t been quite so compliant.  i will make any excuse to wear riding boots.  there was a chill (and wind) in the air this morning, so why not wear boots?  as with the end of any season, i look forward to change and reinventing my wardrobe by pulling out the last fall’s staples.  with the popularity of high-low skirts, these timeless boots make this look down-to-earth casual.  i searched high and low for the perfect riding boot, and because of it, these have sufficed for years.  i still look forward to wearing them each fall and winter.  here’s to a happy fall!

there’s nothing like cooler weather after a very hot summer. it’s exciting to access another season of clothes in your wardrobe. you feel fresh and new! as with any wardrobe, it’s best to be able to mix new and old pieces.  this tank is ancient. it’s probably 5 years old.  i’ve held onto it for years simply because i liked the geometric print and it’s easy to wash (i’m not worried about ruining this piece).  paired with a new necklace and new asos pencil skirt (both with interesting geometric prints), the tank now has a new life!  add booties and a little bit of fur, and you’ve got a great look for cooler weather.
