These are not new boots, these are the fringe one I bought in 2014 but after not wearing most of last winter, I realized it was because I felt like they were a little "too much." By that I mean, I usually use a fringe bag and have a lot of elements to my outfits and sometimes a fringe boots is just too much on top of all of it. I cut all of the fringe off and yup, like them way better now. They have a really sleek profile and are comfortable for all day wear so I know I'm going to reach for them quite a bit more from now on.

The scarf might be over kill but we'd gone to see a movie and I always freeze in theaters so I usually take a large blanket scarf because hey, it's nice to have a blanket! (If only theaters rented out Snuggies or something...)

When I bought this bag last year, I'd been debating even getting it because I didn't feel like I used my tote bags that often. Almost a year later, it's one of my most used bags - I really like how the patterns works with my solid colored maxis and the leather is right in the middle of cool/warm toned leather so it ends up working with everything! I can also throw it in the wash so I don't feel too bad if my water bottle breaks open inside.

I have complicated feelings about open toe boots (Is it winter? Is it summer? Make up your mind!) and I don't usually go for them but these boots are just so awesome and the open toe adds a little to the interesting look they have going on. (I suppose open toe boots would make sense somewhere like Florida, since their winter is pretty much our desperately hot summer.)

This was a date night outfit, my brother and sister in law offered to watch the kids (because they are super aweome people, thank you!) so Ev and I went to dinner. Alone. In Silence.  Ha-ha, not really silence  but it is nice to have a date night every now and then, I think our last one was over a year ago.
All of he leaves had really changed color at this point, by now they're all on the ground and that hard frost this morning finished off the last bits in the garden.

Hey, it's velvet time! Or at least, I am really excited about velvet being a big trend this year, I love velvet and it's so great to find it in such great fall colors like burgundy. I want velvet boots so bad but I have a feeling that may just be a pipe dream - they would get trashed up here with all of the rain and snow and slush. Bah humbug.
