It’s definitely becoming fall in Virginia. The leaves are turning beautiful autumn shades, the sun is setting earlier, and tomorrow’s high is 48! Time to pull out the cool weather clothing…except I grew up in Florida where fall really doesn’t exist and a winter wardrobe consists of a few sweaters and a jacket or two. This means I get to shop for an entire new season of clothes!
One of my most fabulous purchases so far has been my Frye Matilda Boots. Four inches of heel and they are still incredibly comfortable. Even better, endless.com has free overnight shipping. I bought them one evening at home and the next day our wonderful UPS man delivered them to me at work!
I’ve also gone crazy over the cords at J. Crew. My favs are the toothpick ankle. I love a good skinny pant and the length on these is great for someone petite. They are definitely a slim/skinny fit, but also don’t belong to the ever growing group of spandex tights masquerading as pants. (The ones that look painted on and show the entire shape of your leg from thigh, knee, to ankle – no thanks!)
I’m having trouble finding fun sweaters that have honest to goodness long sleeves. Besides the basics, it seems like everything I see has three-quarter length or even short sleeves. Any suggestions? I have a serious collection of cardigans and tons of cable knit crew necks, but I want something a little more interesting.
One last bit of fall fun for today - The Poe Cat is the star of my Halloween cards this year. Although, I think he was more excited about playing with paper scraps than being on the card. He loves making a mess!
Here he is playing with some packaging paper from an engagement gift.
