I'm ready. I'm really, really ready. I am so sick of this hot, humid weather I could barf. I'm longing for cool crisp days and sweaters and tights and boots and maybe even a light jacket. Anyway, here are some outfits I've been dreaming of while sweating my ass off in this house that doesn't have central air.

Clearly I am feeling the camel cashmere and dark skinny jeans this season. And if you're wondering if those are the same boots in all three outfits, just in different colors, why, yes! Yes, they are. It's really fucking hard to find decent vegan shoes and bags, you guys! And these boots are awesome. Go buy them.

Tangent: When people ask me what I miss, they always think I'm going to say "steak" or "cheese" but what I really miss are leather goods. And I'm not even a purist - I grandfathered in all the leather goods I amassed before going full vegan. Real vegans would have gotten rid of all of that. But there's only so much I can do, and throwing out my shoes and bags and belt* was not going to happen.

Work will be crazy this fall as we head into the holiday shopping season, and shuttling the kids to and from school is an added nightmare that makes me want to hide under the bed until next summer. I have literally forgotten to pick up my child at school on especially busy days. I am that mom. Good times. But fall remains my favorite season. I love the clothes, and I love the weather, and I am going to remain optimistic (can you tell my medication arrived?).

What looks are you guys digging? What are you looking forward to this fall? Any big plans? Set any inspirational goals for yourself? No pressure. But come on, share with the group.


*This is not a typo. I own one belt. But it's a good one:

I bought it on that girls' trip to Paris and it's one of the few really nice items I own and I'm not chucking it. Although I am looking in to getting someone to make me a vegan "leather" belt part in different colors.
Pin It!

abc, i looked at those boots you recommend and was thrown by the color descriptions. 'Luggage'? what the hell kind of color description is that? You might as well say 'book' or 'towel'. And anyway, most luggage is black. Which is one of the other three descriptions, so they can't be totally bonkers. And the last one is 'natural'? Do they mean the color of natural fake leather?
Keep it up! love the blog.
