Winter is on the way, but I can't quit you, fall.
After being spoiled with some rather warm weather for this time of year, winter has decided to wave and say I've arrived. Jackets are now going to be traded for coats (although I am happy I get to wear my new coat). Next to spring, fall is my favorite season, so I decided to let it linger a little while longer with this outfit's color palette. I absolutely loved how it came out and now I'm all excited trying to come up with some new color combos.
On another note, have you ever found yourself coveting something, visiting the website all the time just to look at it, thinking about all of the things that it could work with in your closet, but just cringing at the price? I've been searching for the right pair of brown shoes and after spying J. Crew Mona's in a lovely chestnut brown color, I was instantly smitten. But $200+ on a pair of simple, non-designer shoes (sorry, J. Crew, you just don't compare to say, Miu Miu) just felt so wrong. Imagine my delight at finding my new shoes on Gilt!! Pretty much the same color, easy to walk in heel and at waaaaayyy less than my original love. That was cause for a celebratory jig. :)
