Splendid Tee

As we move into the last weekend of summer, I find that I am growing more and more comfortable with the arrival of fall. Those who know me well know that when the weather drops below 70 degrees, I normally get angry, like actually mad. I’ve never liked the cold, but something about this year has me feeling really hopeful. I’m excited for apple picking, trying my hand at hosting Thanksgiving for the first time, and the clothes. I do love the clothes.

Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

Free People Cardigan

While it’s so nice to be able to just throw on a little sundress and sandals and grab my bag and be out the door, my fall wardrobe offers so much more variety. The sweater, jeans, and boot combinations are endless, not to mention all of the great textures of cardigans, socks, and tights to autumnize the aforementioned sundresses. Today, I got into the fall spirit with this cozy sweater, boyfriend jeans, and ankle boots by Free People. The high-heeled boots dress up the distressed denim a bit. I also chose a simple white long sleeve tee by Splendid, a hat by Grace Hats, and my acorn necklace to complete my outfit. Bring it on fall. I’m so ready for you. (Although I am kind of over pumpkin spice everything. Is that awful? Please don’t hate me.)

Maxi Dress

Everyone who knows me knows that I love summer, heat, and the beach, and that I’ve never been a fan of the cold.  That said, I have to admit that there is something so romantic and magical about a dusting of snow on thin, bare branches, especially when this little glimpse of nature is set against the industrial backdrop of the Detroit Public Library.  There, I said it.  It’s pretty.  I’ll always still chose summer over winter, though, and hopefully it won’t be too long until those flowers start to peek out.
