Hello? Fall, Where Are You?

Thought we were done with summer, but it insists on sticking around. The temps have been in the 90s the last couple of days. The pansies I planted in our window boxes are fading fast. And, the drought has been awful. Everything is so dry. I saw my neighbor cutting his grass and plumes of dust surrounded him. We don’t even need to cut ours because I think it’s pretty much dead.

So, I’m going to will the return of fall by thinking of fabulous fall clothes. Please let the crisp, cool fall weather return. Please!

Barbour can do no wrong. I love the waxed-cotton Sofia jacket for fall. Seriously, pair this with some Wellies and your ready to trudge around the back 40 in style.

This coat, available through the Sundance Catalog, is pure furry fabulousness. (Chill, PETA, it's a synthetic blend.) Funny coincidence, it's called the "Sophia" jacket as well.(Just like my daughter's kindergarten class - lots of Sophias/Sophies!) 

These boots would rock any outfit. Alas the price tag will keep them from me. And the fact that I'm only 5'2. Don't think I can pull off over-the-knee boots. But, more power to the tall woman who can sport these babies with gusto!

These riding boots paired with a skirt would make for the perfect outfit at Keeneland.

And just for kicks, I think a cool pair of red Western boots would be great for a fall wardrobe. Pair them with jeans, a skirt or dress and you can't go wrong.

Here's hoping the seasonal weather returns and stays for a while. Not quite ready to jump into the winter weather, but would like to experience a true autumn. Happy Monday, everyone!

It is a little hard to think of cool weather clothes with this heat for sure. I love the jacket. I must find some new boots this year. The trend seems to be having your boots as high as they can go. Happy Monday J!

Love the jacket and the shoes!
Our weather has been warm too, but I noticed it was a little cooler here this morning.
Can't wait for it to get here.
Have a great week.

Let's just turn our ACs on super low and pretend like it's winter outside so we can wear all those seriously cute things you picked out!

I love autumn/winter fashion, I think it's the time of year I bloom. I don't have to worry about love handles, wobbly arms and legs, and even betterI don't have to compare myself to others. I also love it that I can wear as much black as I like - it's such an elegant colour. He's to cooler weather!!
