let’s talk staples- not those of the metal variety but those clothing items that i tend to healthily hoard.

in the winter, it’s down feather parkas.

in the spring, it’s bright & bold printed tunics.

in the summer, it’s light weight sundresses.

& in the fall, it’s skinny jeans/cords, tunic sweaters, pretty dresses worn with tights/leggings, chunky scarves, cashmere anything & everything, etc etc etc.

you see, fall’s my jam.

throughout the year, my closet gets stocked up for the fall. 

& no matter how hard i try, 

the mid-summer months are for daydreaming about my Frye boots, Hue leggings, Matta scarves & the simple comfort found in soft cotton &/or cashmere.

so, a few weeks ago, when i first spotted this adorable striped dress from Old Navy, i immediately put it in my Pocket to re-visit at a later date.

& of course, by the time i got around to it, almost all sizes were sold out online.

however, i stopped in-store the other day & what would you know?

pretty dresses hanging out (pun intended!), just waiting for a home- my home.

i was so excited about my discovery that i may or may not have rescued five different colored dresses.

at $20-25 a dress (& available in all different color options), it seemed like a wonderful way to calm my obsession!

on dreary, fall days (arguably some of the best of the season), i can only hope to wear something like the following with emphasis on the faux fur throw:

daily outfit: the “i couldn’t wait one more day for boots" edition.

i wasn’t planning on the Frye boots making an appearance in August,

but today, they seemed oh, so necessary.

paired with a lightweight Old Navy cotton dress, a boyfriend cardigan, & hair requiring some light TLC,

today just feels right.

(p.s. Hi, Bentley!)

daily outfit: the “so many sassy stripes" edition.

last spring, i bought this dress (yes, those 3/4 sleeves are attached) on a whim.

it was love at first sight but i knew i would have to wait until the fall/winter to actually wear it.

well, i am here to say, after slipping this pretty little thing on twice so far this season, 

i can confirm, it was truly love at first sight & oh, man, it was so worth the wait.

  • Marc by Marc Jacobs dress
  • Frye boots

i paired it up with some army green nails (uh oh roll down the window by opi) & was good to go.

it’s striped. it’s wool. it’s hooded. it’s perhaps a quite perfect sweater.

dear autumn,

although i enjoy the hot temperatures of summer, i really do,

i really love football, crunching leaves, and warm hues from you!

i have my boots all shined, my sweaters picked out, and my leggings all set,

now i need cooler weather, so i can show off the purchases that put me in debt!

is this request really too much to ask?

ushering in your own season…not a huge task!

with a limited summer wardrobe, my daily outfits are gettin’ rough,

i’m ready to pull out the fall gems from my closet and start mockin’ miss duff!!!

thanks autumn,

you’re the best.

xo,
