When I heard a cold front was coming through this weekend I just knew it would be the perfect weather for pulling out my new boots...
|Vintage skirt - FC @ MJ ($9)|
Express SS sweater - FC ($7)
Vintage Dex boots - FC ($24)
Vintage necklace - thrifted w/Mom ($3)
Vintage Louis Vuitton - handed down from Mom

This is the first outfit I came up with around these boots. I'll be able to wear them so many more ways too: with dresses and more skirts, and I can even tuck skinny jeans into them! I'm beginning to think the dark rusty red will actually match a lot more than I thought it would when I bought them...
If you've been reading any of the fashion magazines recently (and I know you have) then you know color is still going strong for Fall. I love the idea of "autumnal hues" used for color-blocking.

Also, I hope you like the sweater and skirt combination - it will probably be my go-to look for the cooler months ahead. I inspired myself, in fact, when I designed the mannequins at the shop. For those of you who haven't been, here's a peek into The Fairy Circle (front window):

One of the most fun parts of my job is dressing the mannequins. For the window I decided to go with the theme of "sweater + skirt" combo because I think it is the perfect transitional outfit. I went with contrasting colors and minimal accessories. Hope you like this peek into my work-world!
Will you continue to color-block into the Fall and Winter seasons? Do you like wearing sweaters with skirts too? Which mannequin outfit is your favorite?
