Dress, Tights: Target | Shirt, Shoes: Old Navy | Belt: Thrifted | Donut Brooch: Creature Type

Fall is finally making its grand appearance around here! I actually felt a little chilly in this outfit! I’m really happy to be back in tights and layering my dresses again. I get wardrobe fatigue as badly as the next lady by the end of winter, but I feel like it’s worse in the fall. By April or May I feel so ready for denim cut-offs and slouchy tank tops, but I just feel more like me in my winter wardrobe. Scarves, layers, tights–all those textures, patterns, and colors just add up to outfits that I feel happier in. Not to mention half my skirts and dresses feel too inappropriately short without tights! Haha.

Y’know what would make this outfit better?

These babies. Jeffrey Campbell Everly Booties. This style really seems to be the “it” boot this year, doesn’t it? Or maybe they were more last year? I can’t remember exactly how long they’ve been trendy, but I love them and want them! I just need a good, reliable pair of black boots.

I have a big Nordstrom gift card just waiting for me to use, but I’m having a really hard time deciding what to use it on. I want to use the opportunity to get something awesome that I really want, but wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. I had been planning on a Kate Spade bag but I’m having a difficult time picking the perfect one. Maybe I should get these instead? IT’S TOO MUCH PRESSURE!

    I love wearing lots of layers and my dresses tend to be on the shorter side too! Yikes. Haha. Fall hasn’t quite hit where I live yet, but I’ve started getting my autumn wardrobe ready! :)

    *sigh* I’ve been looking for a pair exactly like that to replace my black boots for months now…That is exactly the shape I want – very masculine, I loveee IT!

      Well it’s a really trendy style lately, so I’m sure we’ll see it trickling down to cheap stores soon!
