Autumn is here! Well, sort of, in Arizona. It’s still too warm to start wearing all the beautiful boots and scarves and gloves I want to break out this season. But who says you can’t start planning ahead?
I’ve been out shopping and seeing gorgeous autumn hues everywhere – from flowers, to furnishings, and fashion. It’s got me in the mood for pumpkin pie and warm cocoa, and dressing for the season.
I’m slowly starting to rotate my fall/winter accessories to the front of my closet. And one of my classic favorites is this pair of Alexandre Birman boots.
The texture and tone are perfect for fall. I am crazy about this shade of dark olive green. It’s a wonderful “neutral” for an autumn palette. The platforms on these boots add a nice boost in height. And the boots actually fit okay around the calves. Anyone else have a problem with tall boots being way too wide in the calves?
If you like these Alexandre Birmans, you may also like these similar Giorgio Armani boots – military suede lace-up high-heel ankle style. I love the sleek silhouette and height – what a splurge!
During the colder months, my hands always get cold. So, gloves are a must. I picked up these adorable black gloves at Saks Off Fifth. The rhinestones got me – I’m a sucker for sparkle! They’ll be especially perfect for the holiday season. (By the way, I love the touchscreen-capable fingertips, so I won’t have to take off my gloves when it’s freezing just to post a photo on Instagram.)
As if I didn’t adore these gloves enough already, I just discovered these nearly identical Saks Fifth Avenue gloves in soft pink! Pink AND rhinestones? Swoon.
Scarves are also a staple for me when the weather cools down. I just love the easy elegance of wrapping a pretty color or pattern around your neck. This one is my favorite because of its warm colors (complements a lot of my outfits) and its thick, cozy fabric.
This scarf was gifted from my best friend years ago, and it’s a classic I pull out every year. I just love the contrast of pale and dark pink on this design. My bestie knows my fashion taste so well!
After months of triple-digit temperatures, I’m so ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to rich, deep tones, cozy fashion, and some pumpkin latte. I’ve been browsing online for more fall fashion inspiration. Here are some of the accessories that caught my eye! Are you getting cooler weather yet where you live?
