There is something about the beginnings of the fall season that make me want to curl up in front of a fire place with a glass of red wine. I cannot wait to finally be able to wear my tights and boots out again –fall clothing has to be my favorite! This plaid shirt dress is perfect for casual day-to-night; if I were still in college, I could easily see myself wearing this to class and then out to dinner or a social event. This season is all about above-the-knee boots…leather or suede, they are in style in a major way! How to wear them? Pair these boots with a dress or skirt that hits about 2 or 3 inches above your knee, with tights and a poncho, or with skinny jeans. I am searching for a soft cashmere sweater dress, now. You have to put some thought into what to pair them with, or you risk looking too Pretty Woman. Now, if that is your thing and you can rock it –go for it, but for me, I am more comfortable in the conservative version. One last plus on these boots –they are FLAT…you can walk in them for hours on end and not get weary. About the bracelet —we recently went to Chicago and I found it while shopping off of Oak. Street in the Alexis Bittar boutique…I ended up purchasing this specific bracelet because it is versatile and you can wear it with almost anything day/night, which I am big on! Alexis Bittar has the most beautiful pieces…each one unique in its own way. Also, I have tiny wrists and am picky about bracelets, because most of them slide right off!
