Happy Friday, kids!
Is it just me, or did Fall come out of nowhere at full force? Today I'm excited to do another joint blog post with three of my favorite blogger buddies, Madeline and Stephie. (Check out the post from our DC Consignment Crawl adventure from this summer!) We all agreed that ankle boots are a must-have for the transition into Fall, when it's not quite cold enough to bundle up with boots up to your knees, but too chilly for sandals and flats. As you can see, we all styled this wardrobe staple in three very different, but fabulous, ways!
I had originally planned on wearing them to our Reston Oktoberfest excursion from my previous post, but I decided at the last minute that the heels were not conducive to walking around with beverages in hand. Now I'm kicking myself for vetoing the outfit where I could have had pretty weather backdrops like the other girls, but the next day, I woke up to a wet, cold, and blustery Sunday morning. Alas, the blog must go on! I had to make myself look presentable for church, so I set up my camera in front of the cinderblock wall to capture an outfit perfect for the chilly conditions.
This long-sleeved paisley dress is one of my favorites because it's great for transition weather like this. I think that the addition of the black tights and ankle boots really kick it up a notch. When I need some extra warmth, I like to throw on a blazer with a chunky scarf. Because, let's face it, a blazer is always a good idea. (As you can see in Stephie's outfit!) And how cute is the glittery detail on Madeline's boots? Sigh, my friends are just so fashionable!
Go ahead and hop on over to Stephie @ Thrift and Style and Madeline @ Style me Thrifty to hear all about their adventures in ankle boots!
