So I Want to Buy…Ankle Boots

Ah, I have such a soft spot for a good pair of ankle boots. I love them so much. Just boots in general. I was always jealous of all the girls I would see around campus with their cute boots on while I was stuck wearing boring ballet flats because I just couldn’t find a pair I loved. What a shame right? Well for the last few years boots have been my shoe obsession. I will find any chance to wear them. Nights out..weddings…just running errands. There’s plenty of chances to wear them and I’m not really a high heel kinda girl.

Now that fall is (kinda) here finally, I think I really need a new pair of boots. There are tons of cute new styles and trendy colors. Burgundy is my jam right now, but white boots are super trendy. My favorite, of course, are simple and classic black boots. They go with everything and never really go out of style. Plus, unlike white or brown, if they get dirty it takes me way longer to notice. Anyway, I’ve found a bunch of, what I think, are really cool boots for the fall season.

The List: Joggers

I love a good pair of joggers. Joggers are just really stylish sweatpants. They have a better fit and grab at the ankle. They are lazy and just lazy enough without screaming “I haven given up on life.” I wear mine a lot on Sundays because it is usually a day for lounging around and being comfortable. They pair really well with sneakers if you choose to wear them out and about. I think my favorite thing about them is I can feel dressed without really getting dressed all the way. Depending on the color choice, they can appear like regular pants. I saw a lot of different color and pattern choices when looking around at different sweatpants options. They are just your typical greys, blacks, and grey black combinations. No, some even appear to look like tailored trousers in special colors and even a pinstripe pattern. I’m not really sure I would go that far to remain comfortable while trying to appear appropriately dressed for any occasion.

Fall Wish List

October might be my favorite month. There’s this feeling where everything is changing (yes, dying leaves are great and we don’t even have them here), and the weather finally becomes tolerable. There are tons more things to do and explore. So beware for the next month this blog is going to be filled with so many things I love including classic horror movies, chilly weather clothes, and Halloween.

First up my fall wish list. AKA all the things I really want to buy but probably shouldn’t. How could I possibly say no to the H&M jersey dress? They did send it to me in a marketing email as a Halloween costume so I mean…it serves multiple purposes. I’ve mentioned wanting a burgundy/wine colored sweater before and I think I’ll definitely be scooping up this one. The other items are just pretty little things that have caught my eye over the past few weeks. I’m currently working on a fall shop for the blog filled with things I love and recommend for the next few months. Hopefully that will be done and up soon.

SHOP: Sweater, jeans, Rolling Stones tee, ankle boots, handbag, chambray shirt, rings, dress

Fall Trends

While browsing the internet there’s been tons of posts about what to wear this fall. Everything from the color red to bags with fur accents. There’s a lot of time spent saying “why” or “I would never wear this.” But then there’s also a 99% chance there will be a burgundy/wine colored sweater in my closet in the next 4 weeks. It happens. Since there are so many trends I choose just some of my favorites making them the ones that truly matter.

Trend Tracking: Boyfriend Blazers

Fashion Month is pretty much the greatest procrastination tool ever created. There’s so many things to look at which ultimately take the greatest amount of time away from things I should be doing. In the street style snaps there was one really common look done a variety of ways but featured two main pieces: boyfriend blazers + jeans.

NYFW Street Style

I think I’ve mentioned I am in need of serious outfit inspiration about 36,000 times on this blog now. At least it’s time for Fashion Month (!!!) which means tons and tons of new street style almost daily. Of course I’ll be the first to admit street style definitely isn’t something I can fully pull off around here because you’ll be looked at like an alien if you’re wearing anything remotely put together or fashion forward. But, there are definitely some looks in this lot that are pretty adaptable to everyday life or just dang aesthetically pleasing to look at.

What to Buy: Summer to Fall

Oh my god, shut up. It’s still hot out. It’s only been September for 5 minutes. – Everyone reading this right now. 

But just think of this post as an excuse to go shopping or something. Summer to fall is a weird time. It goes from being 100+ every day to being 70 overnight. It’s hard to make really good outfit choices because one second I’m a little chilly but by 4pm I’m sweating like crazy. There are tons of suggestions on what to do in order to transition a wardrobe between seasons. Keep wearing your favorite sundress but toss on a cardigan (duh). Wear sweaters with shorts. Change out your cute sandals for ankle boots although I actually saw Glamour magazine making a case for wearing your sandals. To each their own I suppose.
