As always, the blogging world is a-twitter about the weather. I've heard lots of complaints about the grey, hazy days we've been having in the northeast but they've been some of my favorites! This is the first day in ages that I've been able to break out a wool skirt and feel comfortable. I spent part of the weekend going through all of the fall and winter clothes I had stored in the attic for the shop and spent today taking photos for the shop. Lots of good stuff coming in the next few weeks!

Complaints? Psh! Poppycock. I long for grey, hazy days. I live in Sunny Arizona. While it does get quite cold, the skies are blue and bright pretty much all day every day.

It's dreary yes, but it's such a nice change :D

I agree with you about the weather! haha It's so hard not to talk about the weather when your'e talking about fashion... they pretty much go hand-in-hand. But yes, grey days as these are my favorite.

And as for your boots... !!! I adore them. And not to be weird, but they you definitely have the legs to pull them off.

I love these boots!I bought the same identical boots at Urban Outfitters in Stockholm a few days ago, but in black and i'm in love with them.
I'm waiting for fall days, when this damned hot weather will be a memory and I will finally be able to wear my beloved boots!

I am completely ready for autumn now and I have a new autumn coat so if the weather heats up again here I'll be complaining about that! Haha!

I've been following your blog for a couple of weeks now & all I have to say is that you are definitely one of my top favorite people for inspiration on how/what to wear. Seriously, don't ever stop posting your outfits. They're incredibly well thought out & perfect & not too much. (I really hope this doesn't sound crazy)

KristiMcMurry said...

yay! I'm so glad it's finally starting to cool down a little...I hope it stays that way. Your pictures are so great!

I love everything about this outfit. The skirt and the shirt with the brown leather boots and bag are all perfect together.
