With the change of season, sometimes the temperature isn't quite where we'd like it to be. It's been everywhere from eighty to the low sixties these last few weeks and while I'm officially ready to break out my sweaters and boots, every time I'd like to it's too warm again, so I've put together a little now and later outfit. I love the color of this flared J. Crew skirt and think it would be the perfect piece for autumn. For now, I'd pair it with a simple crepe tank, and later when the air cools, a navy polka dot sweater. I have these boots in black (scored them on a crazy sale a few years back) and they are the most comfortable things, by far my perfect riding boots and I'm itching to get my hands on this lovely  whiskey shade. Though I think that sale was a once in a lifetime thing. Fingers crossed. I'd top off the look with a bag to match, navy nail polish and a pink chocolate lipstick.

What are you reaching for as the seasons change?

  1. It's still high 80s and 90s here in Texas. Last weekend we had a touch of fall, and I broke out my long, hunter green maxi dress. I'm trying to just reach for warm weather clothes in fall colors for now. Hopefully I can start adding cardigans, scarves, and riding boots soon!

  6. I find myself still wearing skirts but with longer sleeves - although its supposed to be in the 80's up here again...not really sure what mother nature is thinking!! I love that nail polish!

  9. I totally agree with you about that J.Crew skirt - it is perfect for all seasons! I think you could definitely add some tights to this look and make it go all winter! That embellished sweatshirt is amazingggg! I'll just take the whole outfit :)

  10. I'm loving those Frye riding boots. A classic and timeless choice! I know what you mean about the weather here in NY. Today it was gorgeous and yesterday it was chilly and raining! So confusing!

  15. The weather in KC can be a bit bipolar this time of year, too. Summer-hot one day, fall-cool the next. LOVE this JCrew skirt- I have it in neon, but am seriously considering buying a fall-friendly option. :)
