So this weekend, I tried on several fall-ey outfits and realized why I don't like cold weather. You only have one basic option: long pants, boots, and something sweater-ey on top. This gets boring very fast. And sweaters take up a lot of room to store, and are kinda spendy (compared to tank tops, anyway), so you can't have millions of them to keep the variety... and, winter clothes are normally in dull colors. I get bored easily!!
So I ended up making my cold weather weekend outfit more interesting and fresh by layering the DIY faux fur trimmed vest over a cotton motorcycle jacket--gives the colorblock sleeve look trendy this fall!--and breaking out my newest purchase, these Vince Camuto beautiful saddle-color leather booties--Ross clearance, $34.99. Biggest clothing purchase I've made in a while! ;)
Double-DIY time... the super easy DIY infinity scarf I did last fall went great with the boots, and plus, isn't a big scarf just the best with skinnies and booties?! Playing with proportions...
