Today's weather has been awesome here in the Poconos, after some rain this morning, and I am currently happily wearing pants and a cardigan in preparation for a meeting I have to attend tonight. In fact, brace yourself for this...I am actually wearing a pair of SKINNY jeans. I am not sure how I feel about this trend, but since I was able to get a pair from Forever 21 for like $12 on sale, I figured I would try them out. I am wearing them with a black t-shirt, a grey longish cardigan, and black flats. They will also work well with the knee high boots I plan to sport this fall and winter.
And speaking of those knee-high boots, I have added another widget to my sidebar entitled "Dream a Little Dream." I used to have my wishlist on my blog, but I took it off after I fulfilled most of it, well over two years ago. It has returned, and it has some of the items found in my previous post in it, as well as a couple of new items. Two of these items are knee-high boots that I am planning to purchase at some point from my beloved Target. They are real leather riding-style boots in black and cognac, and they are $49.99 per pair. I own a pair of the same boots in taupe, and I really like them. They aren't of as high a quality as a Frye boot, but the price is right. There are also two pairs of suede wedges, also from Target, in black and grey on the list. I don't have dress shoes at all, and these seem to be of a manageable height while still being pretty cute. I am going to space these purchases out, of course, but I would imagine that they will all at some point become residents of my closet.
I also have found another cardigan type that I like from Ann Taylor Loft that is currently on sale as part of a buy-one-get-one-half-off promotion. It's a simple longish v-neck cardigan, and I am eyeing it up in the light brown and dark grey colors to replace cardigans that I just threw in the giveaways bag. I tried on the cardigans I bought last year, and they are just too ridiculously large for me to wear this year. I thought I could maybe pull them off until I had a chance to replace them, but it's not going to happen.
Anyway, I blame all this fashion talk on the weather outside! As we head into fall, I think about things like sweaters and boots and new looks for the new season! Hopefully, by going slowly and buying them over time, I will add all of these items to my wardrobe!
