Comfy, Cozy, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Each and every year, I mourn the passing of summer. But truth be told, if winter wasn’t looming on the other side, fall would no doubt be my very favorite season. I love boots, and layering, and cozy sweaters, holiday cheer, crockpot meals, that unbeatable brisk feeling in the air, gorgeous fall foliage, and of course all-things-pumpkin. If I could alternate between summer and fall (with a little skiing in between), I would do it in a heartbeat. So if anyone knows of a region with that kind of climate, kindly let me know. 😉

When J and I were in Montana last weekend, the weather was much colder than it has been in the SLC (45 degrees vs. 75 degrees!). So truly, it was my first opportunity of the season to make my boots, favorite go-to sweater, army surplus jacket, and pumpkin spice lattes a necessary part of my weekend-which made my little heart oh-so-happy!

Army Surplus Jacket:  Forever21 (recent), similar
Cowl Neck Sweater:  H&M (last fall) similar
Jeans:Else by Joe’s Jeans (amazing and on sale!!)
Watch:  Michael Kors
Boots:  Aldo Farmar (last fall) similar

If you are a follower of this blog, then I must apologize if you are tired of seeing my Aldo Farmar boots in so many posts.  But what can I say? Try as I might, it’s tough to find a tried-and-true pair of boots that work for just about any occasion.  But I am obviously a sucker for a good cognac boot and am happy to report I have found this season’s Farmar and am looking forward to sharing them with you in an upcoming post.  But be forewarned, you’ll probably grow tired of seeing the new pair too! A creature of habbit and comfort am I!! 


Pumpkin Spice

I love all things fall, and I especially love all things pumpkin. In fact, I finally caved and had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season last week, which always signifies the “official” start of fall for me. And while it’s still too warm for cozy sweaters and boots, it is just cool enough in the evenings that lightweight sweaters and pumps will suffice. So when I was recently perusing my closet for something to wear, I couldn’t help but to put the below outfit together in honor of my declaration of the beginning of fall…

Sweater:  JCrew

Skinny Jeans:  Gap

Chain Necklace:  ArdenB (similar, similar)

Earrings:  The Icing

Silver Bracelets:  Tiffany and Co.

Gold Watch:  Michael Kors

Clutch:  Frye (similar)

Pumps:  Jessica Simpson Waleo

So while a colored blazer should be at the top of your fall wish list, an embellished pair of pumps or flats should also be pretty darn close to the top.  There are so many fun shoes out there this season from fun animal prints, to  jewel encrusted detailing, to spikes (my favorite!),  to florlas-lots, and lots to choose from.  So just be sure and choose something!  An interesting pair of shoes is not only fun, but also a great way to add interest to an old or simple outfit!!
