Am I the only girl in the world who doesn’t gush over Fall? I mean, I love what Fall brings – pumpkin carvings, Fall festivals at local churches and schools, Halloween! Fall also brings some of the best classic pieces like over the knee boots, big fluffy scarves, patterned coats, you get the idea.. I swear I’ll stop listing now. The only thing that sucks is that here in South Texas, it’s still 90 degrees and it will be for quite some time longer. So whilst wearing my Fall appropriate attire and drinking my pipping hot Starbucks drink, I’m sweating bullets. But I still want in on the fun of Fall, so I guess that means I have to get creative!
In today’s look, I’m sticking to my usual black & white with a pop of color coming from my favorite statement necklace. I wanted to find a way to make this outfit more Fall-ish, without adding on the heavy layers.. aka the warmth. So I reached for this BCBG vest. Maybe you remember seeing it from this post? Vests are always great because they transition so well from season to season. These booties are also staples for me because of their cut-outs! They give the Fall vibe with a bit of breeze.
Despite my lack of enthusiasm for South Texas Fall, I have to admit.. I’m still pretty excited for the Holidays. I absolutely love Halloween and before you know it, you’re stuffing your face full of Thanksgiving goodness. Then it’s Christmas and everything is so beautiful and festive! This year, I will be spending Christmas in a completely different place: Europe! Germany to be exact. I am beyond ecstatic to travel abroad to see my sister, her husband, and niece. I’m so excited to document it all on here, as well!
In the excitement for what is to come (and the anticipation of cold weather in a far, far off place) I may or may not have accidentally bought two new pairs of boots from Zara this morning. Can’t wait to style them on here very soon, in a South Texas Fall kinda way, of course. ♥
