It’s crazy what a difference a year can make. At the very least, it can be a reminder to enjoy every moment and take nothing for granted. From a sartorial standpoint, I feel like I’m in a very place than I was a year ago, but then again, my wardrobe hasn’t really changed all that much. My needs may have though, and the concessions that I am willing to make to look and live stylishly certainly aren’t the same. I think as I grow older, an emphasis on stylish comfort resounds, and although I have my gussied up moments, I most importantly need clothes that will move me from my work day to the weekend, from my home to a travel destination, with nary a wrinkle or blister to boot.
Speaking of boots…there’s not much that sets the tone for fall more than a new pair of boots. One of Sole Society’s best sellers, the Natasha Slip On Booties, transition my lightweight skirts and dresses to the colder weather ahead, while jeans and skinny pants can be tucked safely inside. Ever since my trip to New Mexico a month ago, I’ve been on the hunt for more boho, handcrafted pieces, expressed here through the vintage washed crochet Dylan Homestead Brushed Henley Top from Territory Ahead. We’ve got the long sleeve and the boots covered for fall, but one final component is needed: the fitted jean.
This season, I’m wearing the new Talbots Flawless Five-Pocket Collection Slim Ankle Jean, that has an inside panel to minimize an area that no one wants to emphasize in jeans (the stomach). With a few convertible pieces secured to smoothly stand up to any of my fall sartorial needs, I think I’m ready to finally say adieu to summer 2015…
