hello fall, it’s been awhile. but i’m happy to see you again even if it’s hard to believe you’re here. yet, the calendar officially states that autumn has arrived. and we all know the holidays aren’t far behind (37 days to halloween, 59 days to thanksgiving, and christmas is a mere 92 days away). just last night i noticed the skies were dark by eight o’clock. which means we button up the house an hour earlier and slow down our pace. this is the time of year we binge watch television shows. ozark is our latest obsession. boy is it dark. but for lighter fare, college football can blare all day long on saturday if you’re so inclined. or give me a home design or cooking show any day of the week. mr. style prefers shark tank which i have to admit is entertaining.
fall is also that time of year when we transition from flip-flops and shorts to booties and jeans. leopard print has flooded the retail market this year. if you’re so inclined you can wear leopard print dresses, pants, shoes, belts, blouses, sweaters, and even sweatshirts. as you can see from today’s ootd, i succumbed to leopard print mania and added a merino crewneck sweatshirt to my animal print collection. it’s a slim fit so size up if you want looser or longer. i wear a size 8 or medium, and i chose to stay with my regular size but there isn’t much wiggle room. the fabric is soft, retains its shape, and will look fantastic with skirts, black jeans, slim fitting ankle pants, and tennies.
happy monday, ladies. happy fall!
