I’m partially denying the fact that overnight it became cold. I’m into fall way more than winter just because of the layering without bundling aspect of clothing. You know, it’s the difference between looking cute and cozy and just looking cold and stuffed. It’s a delicate balance, friends.

You can tell of my protest against this drop in temperature by the fact that I’m not wearing tights. Take that cold weather! That’ll show you. Thanks for your response on the last post! I’m making a list and we will try to get through the questions, post by post. And whatever I don’t know, I’ll make something up. You have my word on that.

  2. I’m so obsessed with those boots! LOVE LOVE LOVE them! You look amazing as always 🙂

  3. I’m glad I’m not the only one who loves black and blue together. My husband make me question myself when I pair that or black and brown together. But I usually just ignore him and go with my gut 😉

  5. I could probably say this after every one of your posts but this is my favorite outfit as of late! You look gorgeous and my reaction to the first picture I saw was “Wow!” Love it all and wish I had each and every piece in my closet!

  6. I am OBSESSEd — hear me, OBSESSED — with this outfit. I pretty much love everything you wear, but this I’d replicate head-to-toe if I had the funds! Definitely a future outfit inspiration.

  7. Love this one! How do you get such perfect – end of your hair – curls? (a la Kate Middleton?) Tell us your secret!

  8. I love this, and that Fossil bag. Such an easy way to make a simple outfit more interesting.
    Love this blog!

  19. I love your hair extensions, makes u have more volume to your hair. My extensions curl the exact way on ends.

  21. I really like those boots and that they have a medium / low heel instead of a pointy high one. Most over-knee ones I’ve found have annoyingly high heels.

  25. I totally understand that your style is evolving, and your success probably means you’re going to wear more expensive pieces more often, but I miss the days when I could actually afford to recreate your outfits! You still look beautiful though!

  26. This outfit is perfection! And those boots! Umm…can Christmas come sooner!

  30. I love this outfit So much! That dress is gorgeous and those boots fabulous.

    You know, I’m super glad you wore black and blue together, because I did it the other day and fretted over miss-matching. And, really I don’t even think it’s a thing anymore. Anything “goes”, right? It was so 1990 of me to worry.

    Here’s my black and blue, although yours is twelve trillion times better.

  31. opened your blog this morning and my immediate thought was “YAY!” i love the new look. high five, kendi.

  32. Do you have a sword and a swashbuckling hat hidden back at the house that you sometimes take with you when you wear these boots? lol

    Fabulous look!

  33. I love your high end looks lately. You look fabulous in this outfit. I am not sure the average woman, unless rich, could afford this look. Very classy.

  42. I’m one of those people that would love to see you do another 30 x 30 but I’m realizing more and more how much you actually “reuse” your pieces on here & Instagram… which I love to see more than all new pieces on every post:) You do a great job of using old & new!

  44. I’m curious what size you’re wearing in this dress and if it’s the regular or petite size. I tried this on in an XS and it totally swallowed me up.

  46. Whoa… this post is trippy. I have been following your blog since 2009 and I think I am starting to reverse follow you because I wore almost this exact outfit out on Saturday night… right down to the cream toned clutch and over the knee black boots. Except I had black tights on because it’s Canada up here… and I didn’t wear my sunglasses at night because I’m not as cool as Corey Hart. Whatever people do when they are star struck I think I am doing that now. Thanks for the fashion hero paradox moment.

  48. I kind of want your closet. Or could you just visit mine and tell me what goes with what and what to donate/is hopeless? Seriously, that is a service I would pay for…

  49. Love this dress! Would you mind sharing what size you are wearing? I am in the market but unsure of the right size for me!
