There are few things that soften the blow of summer’s impending end to me.. but fall footwear is one of them. This past weekend I felt the first of fall’s cool air creep in and promptly did what any rational New York woman would do.. I went shoe shopping. The picture above shows the two perfect pairs I snagged and the rest I’ll just be dreaming about from now until when fall truly shows up. I’m not rushing it though.
I wore this turtleneck sweater dress on three separate occasions last week. Which led me to the swift realization that perhaps it’s time I picked up another one for the season ahead because the sweater dress might just be the unsung hero of my wardrobe. They’re super comfortable yet still chic, you can wear them with ankle boots and a moto jacket (like I did last weekend) or you can dress them up with over the knee boots and statement earrings for date night. I argue there’s next to nowhere a sweater dress can’t take you. So in that spirit, I’ve rounded up a few below I’m eyeing.
I want to pretend like I’m too cool to get this excited over a pile of colorful leaves.. but honestly I’m not. And you shouldn’t be either. There’s a real joy to living in a place that has seasons, and after that year and a half stint I did out in LA I don’t think I’ll ever take it for granted again.
October! One of my favorite months of the whole year. New York almost always hands us pitch perfect weather, the leaves turn, it still feels like there is time left before the craze of the holidays sets in and winter is still distant enough for me to go on pretending it will never come. To celebrate, I tossed on alllll the Fall colors and Adam and I took a stroll through Soho one crisp morning before work.
