I love the group; I'm making the best friends there. And I secretly love that I get to wear grown-up clothes that day. Maybe it's my overly practical nature, but I can't justify a cute outfit with accessories when all I'm going to do is stay home and clean. Some days were just made for jeans and t-shirts, you know?
But not today.
Today, I wore my new favorite color combo - aquamarine and periwinkle. The shirt drapes just right and the chunky necklace and cuff are very me.
And WHOA! Today it's chilly in Minnesota. Like, I walked out my front door this morning and it was 36 degrees. (And since I was trying to take my own picture by setting my camera on a bale of straw and triggering the self-timer, I had plenty of time to feel that windchill. My apologies for the lack of focus and hideous backlighting. I was numb.)
So I threw on a coat. A green coat. COLOR EXPLOSION!
And then I made faces at myself because I wore my glasses today. (I don't need them to see, but without them, I lack depth perception. And fall is a good season to see 3D.)
And then I lost feeling in my toes. Because I was wearing wedge sandals.
And that, my friends, brings me to one of my perpetual fall conundrums. I adore sandals and flip-flops. I wear them to the bitter end of summer. And today is that bitter end.
But, maybe because I'm loathe to shed the sandals, I don't have good in-between footwear. I have cute boots for winter and several pairs of LL Bean shoes that work with sweaters and jeans. But those feel like overkill on October 10.
What shoes would you recommend with this outfit?
I'm linking up today to my friend Abby's brilliant Dress for the Day, which entails dressing for the day you want to have, not the day that wants to have you. Come play, every Wednesday!
