It feels great to be blogging again! And it also feels good to spend money on things that aren’t wedding-related! I was just getting into the Fall shopping spirit when I purchased these beautiful booties. I wore them for the first time to work on Monday and I seriously love them. Just look at that woven leather! And those silver side zips! Something tells me I’ll be wearing these over and over again this Fall. They’re going to look great with my high-waisted black skinnies, and they were perfectly edgy (I’m not often edgy) with a dress and blazer on Monday. Q hates them…but that’s okay. I’ve always been a tiny bit of a man-repeller, and that doesn’t change with marriage. But I do plan to wear the things he does like at least as often as I wear the things he doesn’t. You know, balance and compromise and all that.
I’m really enjoying the process of updating my fall-winter wardrobe, and I can’t wait to share my new finds. Q and I recently moved into a little apartment, and I’m trying to keep my wardrobe down to a well-edited collection of items I’m in love with. I also think that will make getting dressed on a cold day a lot easier (is it just me, or is getting dressed on a cold day the absolute worst?) Clearly, I’m not a fan of cold weather, but I do love buying new stuff for the season (is it just me, or is buying a new coat that looks great just the best feeling ever?)
What’s on your wish list this Fall/Winter? If you haven’t thought about it yet, don’t worry. I’ll be sharing mine soon. I embrace being an enabler.
