Fall is here, and it’s serious this time! Whew, it’s been cold. This is about the time of year I start looking at Zillow for homes in warmer climates. But I would miss sweater weather, I suppose.

This week I’m loving my fall looks. I’ve done a bit of shopping, which makes it even more fun to get dressed in the mornings. Take a look!

I’m working backwards through the week; it’s just the way the pictures loaded! This I wore to church on Sunday. I picked up the cotton coated moto jacket, the animal print scarf and the grey tee at the LOFT earlier in the weekend.

I put them together with my plum colored skinnies and black riding boots, and I carried my favorite grey satchel. I didn’t feel like the outfit needed much jewelry so I just wore silver stud earrings and a garnet ring.

I wore this next outfit just working from home all day. I was sent this “long skinny tee” from Shop Adorn and I absolutely LOVE it. This is exactly what I’ve been wanting to go with leggings. It is so long, it’s almost a dress, but it fits like a tee. Mine is in “meadow” which is no longer available, but there are TONS of colors to choose from.

I actually wore it layered under this grey drapey sweater for most of the day.

This next outfit I wore out for an evening of dinner and shopping with some girlfriends. I got the sweater at a local shop a few weeks ago, and I was inspired by Pinterest to pair it with my white jeans. I’m so excited. LOVE this look.

I wore my new Frye Phillip Harness boots. They are like bookends to this outfit, keeping it undeniably fall while wearing white jeans. I’m LOVING these boots. I wear them every chance I get. I never got what all the hype was about until I put them on for the first time. Not only are they pure gorgeous, which I knew — I’d always admired them — but what I didn’t realize until I put my hands on a pair was that they are leather all the way through. There is no nylon lining inside like the other leather boots I own. They are just pure leather. I literally put my head inside and take a deep whiff before I put them on each time. These are an investment piece, no doubt about it. I admit to having a twinge of buyer’s remorse when I sprung for them so impulsively, but they are worth every penny. I’d give up the rest of my boots for this one pair. If you’ve been thinking about adding a pair to your wardrobe, I don’t think you will regret it. And after all… Christmas is coming!

Shopping Tip: If you have larger calves, you might like the popular Melissa style. It’s classy and edgy and comes in a variety of colors. I tried them on, and they just didn’t work well for me. The sales associate suggested the Phillip, and as soon as I had them on, I knew they were the ones for me. These definitely fit better for those of us with smaller calves, and I like how they hug the calf and give it a shapely curve. Another one to consider for a more rugged look, the Veronica Slouch. I like that they’re a bit shorter without being an ankle boot. In fact, these are calling my name in the grey soft vintage…
