Alright, I’ve got some beef with mother nature. It’s October and in the 80′s, which just isn’t right. It’s not atypical of NorCal to get some hot days in September, but usually that is behind us by now. The freakishly warm weather is really cramping my Fall fashion…ha! Speaking of which, I’m seriously sick of all my clothes. Any one want to do a full on clothes swap with me?
Despite the heat, I still broke out my new burnt orange skinny jeans (Marshalls purchase) on Friday and paired it with a tee. They are so soft and will hopefully look good with boots in a few weeks:
But for Shoes-Day, I’m showing a summer-to-fall transition outfit (mostly because of the heat). I wore this to work last Tuesday:
White Gap trousers, orange Dolman top (over a tan cami), and orange sandals:
See, white for Summer (even past Labor Day which is silly rule IMO) and orange for Fall. Maybe it’s a stretch, but it works I think.
So why blame the bestie? Well every now and then, she’ll tell me she’s buying shoes. Then she sends me the links. Then I inevitably buy the exact same pair in the exact same size. And yes we even did this when she was living just a few miles (vs on the East Coast). So I blame the bestie for making me get these Mix 6 wedges (purchased from DSW.com) in a size 7.5. The wedge is extremely tall, but oddly comfortable as are the straps. They were a great surprise shoe and I’m pretty sure, on sale, they were in the $35-range.
Do you follow any of the fashion-season rules?
