Nothing says fall quite like these boots. My mom passed them down to me when I was college, but unfortunately my sense of style wasn't mature enough to appreciate them then. Now I find myself looking for excuses to wear them. Funny how that works, huh?

  2. That is so funny how that works. My grandmother actually gave me some clothes that I held onto for sentimental value, but now find myself wearing them a lot! I love these boots! What a great treasure!

  5. For five years at school I had to wear a grey jumper similar to yours as part of my uniform, and when I left I declared I'd never wear a grey jumper again. But now I like a nice grey jumper! Funny how things change.

  8. My first thought when I saw this post... how awesome are those boots? What a fabulous color. The skirt is quite nice, too. Soft. Unassuming. Very feminine. It is noce to wear leather in that manner now and then.

  14. Such a perfectly classic look. Made even better by the heritage boots. I love how style evolves...and yet stays the same, all at once.

  18. Wow, that bag is absolutely to die for. It reminds me of the Kate Spade bag I'm lusting over. http://douxrousse.blogspot.com/2011/10/spoke-too-soon.html
