Instant Crush: Yellow Gold

I was initially feeling the yellows, but then what is better than yellow, but a deep, rich, mustardy gold?
It's autumnal and party perfect, maybe even a touch ostentatious, but when used just right, couldn't it be the perfect standout piece?

Over the Knee Boots with Jeans

What a change in temperature from my last post to this one! Things you aren't seeing as I try to preserve the notion of a fall outfit: gloves, hat, and heavy winter coat. But at least I've got my over the knee boots to keep me warm, and I'm collaborating again with J's Touch of Style, this time we are styling our over the knee boots with jeans.

I can't believe we are basically a week away from Thanksgiving already! I think mentally I'm still two months behind, and I've not even come close to adjusting to the time change. When it's dark at 5 p.m. I feel like I just want to be in for the night at 6! I think I'm probably one of the few people who dislikes the arrival of fall, but looks forward for the first day of winter, because I know that after December 21st the days will be getting longer again, and I'll take every minute I can get.

Over the Knee Boots with a Skirt

This week I'm collaborating with the fabulous trio of J's Touch of Style, Jodie, her mother Charlotte, and step mother Nancy. Today we are showing four different ways to style over the knee boots with skirts.

Since temps have been steadily dropping, I've finally had to pull out all my boots, and I must say that I love my over the knee boots paired with a skirt. They are like having a secret weapon in my mission to avoid wearing tights. The extra few inches of leather do make a difference in overall warmth, plus tall, thick socks can be worn underneath.

While the combo isn't something I'd wear for the office, it's perfect for my weekend wandering.
