White for Autumn {In the Closet}

White after Labor Day! Sundresses in Autumn! Fashion rebel over here. That’s funny to type, considering last week I wrote about how much I love sweater weather and can’t wait to bust out my boots and thicker cardis. I’m an enigma wrapped in a mystery…

Beige Cardi White Dress and Black Boots {Living Outside the Stacks}

My season mixing is definitely inspired by Pinterest. One of the reasons I liked this particular outfit is that it’s cool enough for the outdoor heat and cozy enough for the icebox that is the library. Once the weather outside starts to match the chill indoors, I’ll add the black tights and scarf.

I know not everyone is a fan of the socks with boots look, but I love it. Sometimes I think the look may be a bit too ahem young for me but I figure as long as I’m not going mid thigh with the skirt and over the knee with the socks I’m good.

Is there a style you won’t try because you think it’s too young?

    THIS is adorable, and I love your hair. Cute!
    We are so alike in what we like, although you do bring some of the funky and I’m a bit more conservative. If I could pull off funky . . . maybe. I think we could definitely shop one another’s closet.

    • Thank you, Holly. Sometimes I think I need to reign in my quirkiness but it’s so much a part of me. My twin sister is very conservative, suits, stilettos, etc. I wish that I could pull off that look but I’m comfortable being me.

      PS if I ever hit your neck of the woods, you have a shopping partner. 😉

        We would have a blast! Next time I head up through MO to see family in IL, I am letting you know ahead of time so we can meet for coffee (of course!).

    Short short denim shorts! Too young for me. Love this outfit and in fact I might be inspired to wear something very similar tomorrow xxx

    • Yeah, I can’t do the short shorts either. Even when I was young(ER). LOL

    Those boots are from Target? Oooh, I need to check those out. I’ve been on the lookout for flat-heeled boots 🙂

    • Yes. And I just picked up a pair of flat-heeled brown riding boots from there a couple of days ago. They have some of the cutest boots.

  • I’m a sucker for a belted cardi! Also, I love all your accessories. I never accessorize enough… I need to work on that!

    • Thank you. I’m still working on embracing the belted cardi but I like it because it adds something to the outfit… Like a completer.

  • I for one love the socks with boots look. I’ve been on the hunt for some cute riding boots and colorful socks to wear with them this fall.

    • I just picked up a cute pair of brown riding boots from Target the other day… They’re flat-heeled as well. They also have cute socks. 😉

  • Love the boots and socks look! Just is peek of socks like you did here is age appropriate. 🙂

    • Thank you, Monique. Hope you’re having a great weekend.

  • Whitney

    The outfit is adorable on you, I will wear a sleeveless dress with a sweater in the early fall.

    • Thank you, Whitney. Yes, I’ll do that too. Love the look and it’s good for fluctuating temps.
