I am trying my best not to get too carried away with living in boots and cosy knits too early because I know it will turn into my go-to uniform soon enough, but, part of me just can’t resist. It is like comfort food for me, but in the form of clothes. Comfort clothes? Not necessarily comfortable clothes (I’m the only girl I know that thinks walking in 5 inch platform boots is just as good as wearing flats) but something I am completely comfortable in. Make sense?
I’m not sure why I found it so absolutely necessary to snap a selfie before work one morning. I know I was excited about my new sweater and cosy accessories, oh, and the fact that I managed to tie my hair back in the perfectly chic yet completely undone manner. Anyway, I figured there is no better time for a selfie than seven a.m.
I also want to take a quick moment to state how pleased I am as to how perfectly perfect my chelsea boots from J.Crew match my trusty Proenza Schouler. Don’t you think it is a match made in heaven?
I think I’ve made it known only about a billion times that I love boots Further more, I’ve also made it known that I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of Chelsea boots for a long time. A very long time. I would either find a pair that was cut too low, missing a quality elastic, or really, just plain sucky. So, how excited was I to wear this pair by J.Crew to work today? Beyond. Excited. These boots are everything right now. With my ridiculous standards and expectations when it comes to footwear, I can’t even believe that I found my match. Really I can get picky. I’m just a girl who knows what she wants.
J.Crew footwear in general is totally underrated. The leather is very soft and supple with no need to worry about a break-in period. The design is sleek- I can wear these with absolutely anything and the quality reaches my slightly obnoxious footwear standards. These babies are hand made in Italy and I can feel it on my feet when I slip these on. I should be embarrassed as to how excited I am, but I’m not. I share my excitement openly with you.
On another note, Fall is officially here and I can really feel it. It really is the most beautiful season.
I’m loving this because it is so fitting for me in this moment. I got my hair done yesterday- a slightly darker shade for Autumn and quite the blowout. I don’t normally change my colour too much for the seasons but I know many women do. If anything I was just feeling very in the moment- got to my appointment, and as I sat in the waiting area I pulled up a picture of Cara Delevigne to show my stylist. “Something like this, but only keep a bit more of my blonde.” And so she did. I’ll have to take a picture for you soon.
Happy Sunday to all my readers, I hope you can find some time to relax and enjoy what remains of your weekend. I’m off on a bit of a rainy adventure later today but love the fact that I can use it as an excuse to do a little extra bundling up.
