I truly love Fall. Period. Though barefoot on the beach is always a good idea, by September every year I am ready for Autumnal dressing and closed toe shoes. And for fashion folk, September is like the Fashion New Years! Time for a fresh start, look, or entire wardrobe. I am huge fan of Zanna Roberts Rassi, her style, and her collection of Preen and Valentino dresses. So this Autumn I was super stoked to rock this particular trend. However, for us in Toronto the weather has been unseasonable warm, and the temperatures have only just started to drop. Not very conducive to this season's "It" item - the long sleeve dress, and combat boots you are just dying break out. The boots by the way became a whole other obsession after Dorit from Housewives wore her pair of white Christian Dior's with many camera close -ups. I made it my mission to find a credit card friendly vs runway pair (and yes I know The Row made an epic pair too) With a bit of searching, a trip to see a pair of Doc Martens, and a little patience, I then opened up my Zara app and there they were; ready to be mine 2-5 business days later.
I am fully on board with this dress thing. This is my second long sleeve floral dress from H&M and I am 98% sure I am going back for another one that is now on sale. Super comfortable, on trend (and dare I say put together) with the more unexpected element of combat boots or sneakers has my name written all over it this upcoming season.
