The weather has been cooler here lately which always puts me in a better mood. Steve getting a job really helped elevate it. Of course, the first thing I think about when it comes to seasonal changes is what I’m going to wear. This season, I’m falling in love with wide-leg pants. I scored a pair of grey ones on sale at Banana Republic and I loved them so much I went back for a pair in black (also on sale). My advice when it comes to wide-leg pants and jeans is to watch the proportion. They look best when they are fitted in the thigh and don’t hang too long. Otherwise, you look like you’re wearing clown pants.
I’m also exploring ruffles this season and I started with a sleeveless top I had special ordered in May. It is leopard print satin with a high ruffled neck. Trust me, it doesn’t look as tacky as it might sound. I plan to pair it with my black pants or jeans. I really think it will look best under a jacket. I like the fact it’s only ruffled at the neck so I don’t feel too “precious” in it. I like my ruffles to be a little edgy.
The best part about cooler weather is wearing my cowboy boots. I had packed them for the summer and put them in storage so I had to get them out as soon as it got cool. I’ve been wearing them with my jeans and t-shirts this past week. The reason I love cowboy boots, and boots in general, is that they give me so much confidence. I swear, I walk taller when I’m wearing them.
Not much else to report on the fashion front. I’m off to Lowe’s to buy some mums. I’m determined to landscape the hell out of this house and get it sold!
