Comfy Casual




This coat is soooooo cozy and warm. I found it at a Salvation Army for $10!! It's by MODA and it's 100% wool so I'm happy us Floridians still have cool enough days to wear this warm green fiesta partying sweater coat! This outfit reminds me of Julia Roberts on 'Runaway Bride'. One of my all time favorite movies. There's a short scene where Julia is swinging on a tire swing and this outfit just totally makes me feel like her. Comfy, casual, but totally chic in a laid back, but put together way. I'm wordy, can you tell? ;)

One Pair of Boots: 3 Different Looks

Hey y'all! Thanks for reading along. Today's post is all about welcoming Fall. And what better way than to bring out the 'over the knee' boots! I've had this specific pair for about three years (like everything else in my closet, it seems). They're actually pretty comfortable and a great neutral - *2 of my tips in picking boots out* You can find them almost anywhere. I got these at ROSS for $20!!! They've lasted this long, but I bet my next pair will be some yummy Vince Camuto's

I'm not much of a writer, so let's get the pics rollin'. I've got 3 looks to show you how to style and 'over the knee' boots with just about anything. Enjoy!

Look #1 

Any figure can pull this 'comfy chic' look off. Most everyone has a basic pair of black leggings. Add a slouchy, Delman style top and you're good to go.How dressy or casual you want to go depends on the jewels. Add a lot of gold or silver and you've got GLAM. Add just a couple tasteful pieces and it's a simple, more casual approach.


Look #2
Pair with a basic sweater dress and a sharp trench and you've got a city-style, "I aint got no time fo dat" attitude ;)   P.S.> THE best basic dresses can be found at Victoria's Secret  The great thing about most 'over the knee boots' is that you can always fold them down for a more subdued look.


Look #3 
 Got a summer dress that you wore over your swimsuit to the beach, ate and spilled ice cream on it, and your daughter's diaper leaked on it ? Take it into Fall. The keys to bringing a NEUTRAL COLORED summer dress into Fall is pairing with, obviously, knee high boots and a great, 'fallish' jacket, be it a long black coat, a knee length trench, or a cropped 3/4 length leopard jacket like this one. The length of the coat does not matter. It's really the pairing of colors and patterns that make it work. 

I hope you got some tips and inspiration on bringing out (or buying) some knee high boots for Fall! Thanks for reading. Have a splendid weekend!!

Typical

If you follow me on Instagram, I'm sure you know I chopped my hair and darkened it a bit for Fall. My Husband LOVES it. I was pleasantly surprised.
Today's post is from before I made over my hair. My daughter decided to jump in some shots, too.
It's hard to dress "Fallish" when you live in hot and humid Florida, but it's always important to dress in the season's colors. While my pieces aren't necessarily warm and cozy, the colors reflect the season. Enjoy!!





And yes, that is Aubrey......butt naked!! :)

Fashion: I Got the Blues

Really, I'm a casual, simple person at heart. I love love love long cardigans that are chic, comfy. This 'August Silk' brand cardi I found at TJMaxx last year has gotten its use. It makes throwing some jeans and a heavily used gray tee look more polished. **TIP: When in doubt, always add a sophisticated layer.**
