This weekend felt truly fall with the crisp and breezy weather. I baked (a lot of) homemade apple pie, we walked to dinner at one of our new favorite local restaurants, and cozied up under blankets to watch scary Halloween-themed movies. And I stayed bundled up in this sweater all weekend long. There’s a certain victory in finding a great sweater you can’t help but always reach for.
For years now I’ve been on the hunt for a great pair of thigh-high boots. I’ve found pairs that are just slightly too short or the material is too flimsy so the boot droops down during the day, they’re either too expensive or the heels just isn’t right. And then I found this pair. They’re bordeaux, which wasn’t the color I was initially searching for, but the wine hue makes me love them all the more. I felt like a 70s glamazon strutting around yesterday in my super high boots, matching (faux) leather skirt, and cropped sweater. Not to sound overly cheesy, but these boots were definitely made for showing off (and walking).
I spotted this hairstyle on a Lucky Magazine guide and decided I had to give a spin on it a whirl. The mini bun didn’t quite fit my look, but it was a fun half-up/half-down ‘do that made rainy day hair a whole lot easier and fit well with a quirky, colorful outfit.
And if you want to take advantage of the Shopbop/East Dane friends and family sale happening right now (which, why wouldn’t you?!) you can replicate the look with these pieces (the white dress comes in mustard yellow) and save 25% with code FAMILY25 at checkout!
Thanks to the long weekend, the birthday festivities continued yesterday. Although we all know I’m not one to usually reach for jeans, sometimes they’re a requirement for the perfect, casual outfit, the kind that involves a little print mixing and a favorite fall hat.
