I love, love, love getting sartorially prepared for fall. Nothing makes me happier than stepping outside on one of autumn’s first few semi-chilly mornings, knowing that it’s O.K. to wear leather boots, close-toed shoes, long sleeves and turtle necks. Just writing about it makes me impatient! Is this a sentiment that the style world shares? I know that a handful of blogs I follow have mentioned the same.
I can’t get enough of this top. I’ve remixed it about five times for the blog because it’s so comfortable and goes. with. everything. Love pieces like that! The fabric of this skirt is on the heavier side, so I would normally save it for cooler weather, but I just couldn’t help myself. It’s so comfy, and it has pockets! A pencil skirt with pockets… is paradise.
I also think I should have saved these kicks for September, but what the heck? I got them on sale at Nine West a couple months ago and couldn’t resist bringing them out for a stroll around Cobble Hill (and even earlier this year, around Midtown East. Come to think of it, this outfit is pretty darn similar to the one I wore in those photos. I suppose I have a penchant for sleeveless tops, pointy pumps and pencil skirts ;)). In a strange way, they reflect fall 2010’s “innerwear as outwear” trend because of the sexy black lace.
