Fall Fashion Day 1

I woke up today to the sound of rain.  And it sounded like a lot.  We are, in fact, getting our first fall storm of the year.  Around here that means inches of rain and high wind.

Since part of my job involves walking all over campus outside, I almost started off the week with one of my pre-shot outfits.  Looks I'd worn recently, but wouldn't actually have on today.

But I talked myself out of it.

Mostly because I realized that cowboy boots were the solution to my problem.  They'd keep my feet dry and warm, and my pant's hem from dragging too much through puddles.
Also, I wanted to be able to see my morning pal.  Isn't she cute?!  And a little annoyed by her nap being interrupted.

I wore a variation of this outfit a few weeks ago for my blogger meet up.  A few tweaks here and there (mainly the boots and a gray, not white, shirt), and it's back.
I pretty much love this scarf-life woven thing.  Not exactly sure what to call it, but it's quite exotic.  Literally.
So there's day 1.  And I still have my "back ups" in case I'm uninspired (or it rains) the rest of the week.  Also, I apologize for the not-full-length shot.  There's not a full-length mirror in our house.  
Outfit details:
Cardigan - Nordstrom (gift from Mom)
Scarf-ish thing - from Argentina (gift from sister)
Gray t-shirt - Gap boyfriend shirt
Jeans - Cruel girl western jeans
Boots - Ariat, purchased in the middle of Wyoming
Watch - Fossil (gift from Mom and Dad)

Head on over to Emery's blog to see what everyone else is wearing!

  8. I want cowboy boots! I literally have never stalked an item like I am stalking them all over the internet. I love yours and the fact that they came from Wyoming. Happy day!

  9. That outfit really, really goes well! I had such a hard time figuring out what to wear this morning with all the rain. Ended up with the blandest of bland outfits. What I really need is a bright red, long raincoat and a bubble umbrella. That'd keep the rain out!

    And of course, like everyone else, I really like the scarf.
