Hello September.

When September comes, my brain begins to tell me it is time for fall. I long for cooler weather all summer long. My senses remember the touch of a crisp breeze, and tingle when I think of colorful leaves.

My hands want to reach for the sleeves of my sweater.

For goodness sake, I want to enjoy hot coffee again without breaking a sweat.

DSCN4545It may not be cool enough yet to wear my favorite sweaters, but I am already feeling the fall vibe come out in my wardrobe choices. This suede fringe vest is certainly not meant for a day that is too warm.

I am being pulled toward my favorite fall color combinations even more than usual. Deep neutrals and jewel tones are drawing my eye more and more.

No matter the season, I tend to utilize my entire collection of clothing. I love to layer, and construct outfits. This stripped dress helps to balance out the warmth that the vest brings; paired with short booties, this outfit works even in the persistent warm weather.

We are so dictated by temperature in our daily lives, I rarely think about it. I can't wait for my favorite season to fall.

What's yours?

P.S: These are my favorite black booties, and they are on sale now, via the link below!
