layers and boots

What’s a typical Fall outfit (layers, boots, hat) without a slightly colorful Fall tree in the background? 

I mean really…

Sweater: J.Crew old – similarhere too (fab options here, here, here under $20, under $15

Shirt: Loft 

Pants: old (similar here, here, here)

Boots: Nordstrom – on sale now!  (great dupe of SW)

Bag: Mansur Gavriel (great option for Fall)

Hat: c/o Sole Society

Wooohooo it’s Friday. Can I get a woot, woot (cheesy much?)

Sunny Fall days are my favorite (like they’re not everyones) even though it’s been in the high 50’s. As long as the sun it out I’m alright with high 50’s.

I’m sure some of you are wondering about the comfort level of these boots and such. Well, lets see…the first couple of times I wore them, they started rubbing on my heel bone (or whatever bone it’s back there, but I usually have issues with tons of shoes irritating a specific bone on my right foot). It made me sad because I automatically concluded that they won’t be comfortable for a long day. 

Well, that was last week. This week I wore them twice, yesterday pretty much all day, and honestly I even forgot that they felt slightly irritating on my foot last week.  Personally, I find them to be very comfortable. They seem to run TTS and they also come in wide calf

I think I did say once “they’re my new favorite boots for Fall” (the excitement of new purchases takes over I guess).  They’re my black favorite boots but my #1 favorite are still my Sam Edelman OTK boots that I’ve had for four years now and they’ll be experiencing their 5th Winter this year.  You might have already seen on my FB page that the Sam Edelman boots are back after they stopped backing them for a couple of years. Smart move Sam, smart move.   (most places they still cost $300 but here they’re $200). 

The end! 

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

    I love the layering look. Good to know about the boots- was the pain from "breaking them in?" or was it just a fit thing? Either way, they look too good to pass up! Have a great weekend!ClareUnderstated Classics

      Thank you! I think it was a fit thing as quite a few shoes give me the same problem on my right foot. But usually after a few wears the shoes form to my foot. And these are definitely comfy now 🙂
