Okay, so 57 degrees isn’t exactly the brisk, crisp, cool of fall, but it’s a fabulous start. NOW I’m ready to start thinking about my fall/winter wardrobe. For the most part, it’s ready to go, but there are a couple of things I’m looking for to keep things fresh. Before I launch into my fall shopping list though, I will mention that things went really well on Saturday with the woman we’ll now call Local Vet and Sissy’s eye pressure was spot-on.
First up… a pair of colored skinny jeans or ankle pants, and maybe those dot flats too. I’m going to have to go try ’em on though, and that always slows me down. I want them to go with the striped jacket I purchased in round #1 of the Talbots super-sale. I think I can “fall it up” over my red sheath, my navy sheath, jeans, brown ponte knit pants… (Why yes, I might have a ponte knit problem. But I don’t think it’s really a problem. It suits my figure, my lifestyle… so where’s the problem?)
Then, I want more plaid. I love plaid. I blame it on my Scottish heritage, but who doesn’t love a little tartan? Sweetie Pie Style has my number, and she was inspired by this Emma Stone ensemble, so now I want a cropped plaid jacket of some sort. Let me know if you find something more like Emma’s in color, but the motorcycle style works for me too.
Those and the black flats I’ve already whined about… I haven’t pulled the trigger on anything just yet there either, but I’m ready to retire the sandals and move on to flats and boots, so I need to get it together.
What’s on your fall radar? I need cold-weather fitness attire too, but that’s another post for another day.
