I like the fall season. Or at least the idea of it.
Thus far, the climate here in Houston hasn't changed much, although there have been days where it was feasible to layer clothes without fearing that you would melt away on the sidewalk by the afternoon.
Because of this, I try to not get too excited and go overboard with some of the fall (and winter) trends. In my opinion, compared to most of the rest of the country, Houston should have its own set of seasons: really warm, hot, hot-as-hell, and could-be-cold-but-it-depends-on-the-hour. So, rather than focusing solely on the changing of the season and the climate that is usually associated with that season, the usual determinants of my work wear will be my mood, the fluctuating temperature in my classroom (which should have its own entity, as well), and the details of what my day will entail.
Fall this week, for me, was met with...
... a bright blazer...
|Vince Camuto "Padara" booties|
...a sleek skirt...
|Vince Camuto "Kain" pumps|
...pops and pops of color...
|Guess peep-toe pumps|
...mixed patterns and textures...
|Gianni Bini wedges|
...and Friday flat-wear.
|Target leopard flats|
Mixing together "fall" and "spring/summer" pieces makes it easy for me to not drive myself crazy everyday by dressing for the current season and the expected climate. Now, if you want to talk about daily weather changes, that will be another conversation.
Until next week!
