dotty, really tall boots, and really long cardigans

december outfit
[wearing]
dress: j.crew
cardigan: old navy
bag: everlane
boots: old navy
necklace: target

[three things]
1. Hello!  It's been a minute, eh?  If you want to catch up on the places I've walked and a bajillion photos of my baby, then those two things are very well documented over on the 'gram.

2. These extra-tall boots recently joined my closet as part of my new-coats-and-boots-make-winter-slightly-better plan.

3. This dress has been in my closet for years now (evidence!) and that makes me strangely proud that I might just be finally making better purchases.  There were way too many years when it seemed like I was continually cleaning tons of stuff out of my closet that just didn't work out.  I still have to move things along, but the quantity is waaaaay less.

dotty, cardicoats, and coatigans

the fallness
[wearing]
dress: loft
giant cardigan: cos
boots: loeffler randall

[three things]
1. Fall booooots!

2. Can I just keep the weather where it's crisp enough for big sweaters and boots, but not tights and hats?  Please, Midwest?

3. This cardigan is on the border between sweater and coat--which makes it perfect for a cold office since wearing a legit coat all day makes typing much more difficult.

dotty, crisp white, and...well, a bunch of dots.

the fallness
[wearing]
dots top: catherine catherine malandrino
jeans: vince
flats: vince

Since any "three things" commentary would mostly be about how I managed to successfully not impale any toddlers at daycare this week while unfolding Maddie's stroller or how baby food bananas smell really good, we'll go with a little more structure for today's post.

creative: This top seems like the prefect combination of pattern and texture.  And yeah, I like me some dots.

young: This is essentially just jeans and a white top, but the longer sleeve length makes the top a bit more serious.

professional: This was a Friday outfit, but it could have been another day of the week with no client meetings since my office is pretty casual.  (Or I could just swap the jeans for some gray dress pants.)

dotty, little navy dresses, and last hurrahs

summer outfit
[wearing]
dress: tibi (similar)
necklace: target
flats: vince

[three things]
1. Navy!  After a few years of being particularly devoted to black dresses, wearing some blue seems like a good idea.

2. Where did my shoes go?  Oh, don't worry, they are there...they just match my skin ridiculously well.

3. I'm trying to squeeze in a last hurrah for all my Summer dresses before Fall really arrives.  I find it much harder to find dresses that work with tights and boots for some reason, so my closet definitely favors the warmer months.

dotty, twirly dresses, and worky jackets

summer outfit [wearing] 
dress: elliatt
jacket: h&m
flats: vince

[three things]  
1. This dress is wonderfully twirly.  The pink jacket is there to keep it under wraps a bit for the work day.

2. Oh, blush pink, I've got a big crush on you.

3. I've tried to start strategizing for Fall and come up with at least a vague shopping list, but my stream of consciousness goes something like "sweatpants, sweatpants, ooh I bet my gray boots fit on my feet again, I should probably find some more work pants, but really sweatpants would be much more comfy, sweatpants, sweatpants, sweatpants..."

dotty, fall colors, and summer nails

summer outfit
[wearing]
top: vince
jeans: vince
flats: vince
clutch: clare vivier
necklace: target

[three things] 
1. Oh hi, fall color!  This shirt should make a lot of appearances during pumpkin season!

2. After being pretty into dark nail colors (especially grays) it's nice to switch it up with some off-white polish for a change.  

3. I've got a long-term commitment to gray jeans.  This is my second pair and I'm hoping they end up being as prolific as my first.
