New Find: Boots

I have a sickness, I LOVE boots.  It has been driving me crazy that the weather is so warm around here that it would just be ridiculous to wear boots out.  Well...I snuck it in a couple of times, which makes sense since I'm known as "the girl with the tall boots" at work to some people.  However, I just got these shearling-lined  Dolce Vita Josh boots a month ago, and just could not wear it due to the weather.  I gotta draw the line somewhere, you know, even I have boundaries.

Today, the weather finally fell below 75F, so I totally jumped on the chance.  It's such an awesome feeling to slip into something that feels so familiar.  My feet looks like they are in wrapped in a fluffy cloud, balanced out with some cool ruggedness.  Oh boots, how I have missed you.

I apologize for not having an outfit pic today, but here is what I wore with the boots:
Free People Thermal
Splendid Rugby Cardigan
J Brand Skinny Jeans

2011 Wearable Fall Trends

Big apology for the lack of posts lately.  Work has been turmoil, the late hours has not been friendly to posting.  However, I got a question on Facebook today and I am excited to do a quick Q&A about it. :)

Q: For us who don't have time to check out fashion mags or what is out there..what are the must haves for Fall wardrobe?

A: Some of the strongest trends this fall are prints.  Think polka dots, leopard, snake skin - for this print trend, it is more practical to stick accessories instead of a full on snakeskin duster coat.  I would recommend a polka dot top/dress, a leopard scarf, and a snake-print shoe(not worn all at once, of course).  Those items will be right on trend now and not be dated when next Fall comes along.

Dotted lace tee
For pants - Colored or wide-leg.  
J Brand @bloomingdales
Blank Cord Flare

Shoes: Boots, of course it's boots!  You're going to ask what's different this season?  This fall is more rugged and less dainty.  Think chunky-heel, lace-ups, buckles, wedges.
Luxury Rebel @Nordstrom

Roan Wedge

Burberry @net-a-porter
Rag & Bone Moto Boot @Nordstrom

These items will be able to carry you through Fall and Winter.  More importantly, most will still be wearable without being dated next year.  That's's shopping time!
