I woke up this morning at it was 60° outside, which isn’t cold by any means, but for August, that’s pretty chilly. Let’s be clear: I do not want winter. At all. But, I’m pretty excited for fall. Dressing for fall in Minneapolis is fun. Summer clothes are nice, but when it’s hot and humid, your options are limited. You can’t get too creative when every additional layer you add to your outfit causes additional sweat. Not worth it. Hence why my summers are spent wearing sundresses and the most basic of shorts/crop top combos.
So this morning when I felt the cold breeze drifting in through my window, I hopped out of bed, PUMPED because I would get to wear my brand new lace-up boots that I’ve been dying to wear ever since I impatiently purchased them from Target in July. I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of tall, lace-up boots for years, but sometimes you just can’t find the shoes you’ve envisioned in your head (at least in your price range), so I’ve patiently shopped, always keeping these lace-up boots in the back of my mind. And then I found them at Target, the happiest place on earth.
I call them my Katniss boots, and they are the perfect boots for fall. After trying on roughly one million outfits this morning—my natural instinct was to wear them with flannel, but I wore flannel yesterday—I finally decided to keep it simple by wearing skinny jeans, a black v-neck, a slouchy, military green jacket from Tobi, and the most fall-appropriate scarf ever from Pimkie in Paris. It kind of reminds me of the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection. I will wear it belted as a top one day. It’s on my to-do list.
On another note, a few weeks ago my friend/co-worker Kate told me that I need constant supervision, which I scoffed at. Until I made her climb on the roof with me to take these photos. Then I wanted to sit on the ledge to take a photo for my #cuteshoescoolplaces series, but she wouldn't let me, forcing me to come up with an alternative solution. Chaos ensued. Maybe I do need constant supervision...
