You’re starting feel a little nip in the air, the leaves are changing colors and you’re digging through your closet for the boots you threw in the back once March rolled around last year. (Where did you PUT those things? They’ve gotta be around here somewhere.) It’s FALL!
Who am I kidding? None of these things are happening for me, it was 92 degrees in Houston today. I am, however, going to take one for the team here and give you a post chock-full of cooler-weather clothes in honor of the first official day of fall tomorrow. Even though I won’t be able to wear any of these clothes until January. Let’s begin.
Sometimes you just have to wear polka dots to work. These pants are great for the transitioning weather. You know, when it’s 50 in the morning and 78 in the afternoon? They’re also super cute and would dress down easily as well.

Did anyone else not know they sell J.Crew clothes at Nordstrom?

The shoes are my absolute PERFECT wedge. A lot of wedges are too tall, which makes them weird and hard to walk in. These are great. Sensible without being boring.

I love fitted dresses because they look professional and it’s an easy “uniform”. You could do this combination (dress/belt/shoes) a million different ways and no one would ever notice it’s the exact same thing over and over.

The shoes are the best part of this outfit. The d’Orsay style is one of my favorites in both flats and heels. It feels classic and elegant. Also these tassels. And the color. Just everything about them. Like if somebody slipped a little acid into Audrey Hepburn’s tea one morning. They also come in red if that’s your flavor. I did have a friend take a look at them and mime throwing up with a little gag noise, so they may not be everybody’s cup of tea but I am absolutely obsessed. Jewel tones are great for fall.
