It’s a Leopard and Leather Day!

plraTwoufeQKTTOHjcpfwWUEeMVFNoxr5VmrgTLN5t0,ztAewArcq4Y4DDviiYSks5l1HltBFp5A6BtJM6iO_wo-1Autumn crush and surging winds are in full swing and I am in the mood to wear my leopard dress with my leather jacket. I usually wear this jacket with jeans and a tee, but it’s fun to shake it up and pair it with a dress, tights, and boots. Why is it that we follow old pattens and have the tendency to put clothes together in the same way? Following fashion and style blogs has helped me to broaden my thinking and experiment with my clothes. I recommend it for expanding your wardrobe and starting to think of yourself as a free spirit. Put the leather on and carry on!

Bring on the boots!

My two-tone leather/suede Rachel Comey boots, fall 2011
How I got them is another story!

We’re experiencing the first cool-snap; autumn is here and I found myself pulling out my booties. Although I miss the ease of finding a simple summer sandal in my closet, knowing that I own a pair of go-to boots is satisfying, too. And my boots of choice are the ankle booties. I love boots but they often feel claustrophobic and constricting. The answer for me is always … my casual booties. Easy on, easy off, lower-heeled booties are boots without the commitment. I wore mine without socks, but as the weather cools they work just as well with warm socks. Wear them with jeans, trousers, skirts, and even dresses or shorts with tights – they are versatile and low maintenance. And don’t forget to protect them! Invest in a leather/suede protector and you can transition to the next season with confidence.
