Nip In The Air

I absolutely adore, love and live for fall weather. It makes me sing, dance, smile and feel rejuvenated. Seriously, I feel during the fall like a completely new woman. Which is great, cause summer weather wears me out.

This time of year is my time to go for long drives in the country and take some time for myself. I love the changing of the colors, the smells in the air, the crisp clean feel of it all. Like a new birth of change.

It also makes me want to get out there and shop! With the crisp, cool mornings I love sweaters, boots and leggings. I know what your thinking here, a 46 year old, mid life woman is NOT supposed to wear leggings. I say, Aw poof on it. If you got legs, flaunt em!
This type of clothing is comfortable and chic. I love it.

So while in the mall the other day I ran across a boot sale. I haven't worn boots in years. I had to have me a pair. Not to mention the sale sign was drawing me ever closer. So I found a pair of suede scrunch top black boots, they were just screaming my name. And we all know if you buy a new pair of boots you have to have at least one matching outfit with it. Well low and behold if I didn't walk a little further down the mall and discover (while searching of course) the cutest sweater dress and leggings. And they were on sale too. My heart stopped, the angels sang and my breath left my body. I had to have them. No two ways about it. Who cares if I am 46, in my mind I'm still at least 36.

The sweater dress I bought is a deep dark purple though.

Just like my mom always says "you are only as old as you feel" and some days I still feel like a teenager (and then my body creaks and reminds me that I am not a teenager).

I often say that I suffer from emotional retardation. I am 44 but have made it recently to atleast 35!!! I love the swater dress and scrunchie boot look too. I think I wore similar looks in the late eighties. I love to shop this time of year too. Happy Fall finally!!!

Oh, I so hear you! I love Fall weather. I sweat less, lol.

Love your choices. I haven't bought a thing yet, lol. The styles just don't appeal to me lately.

Looks as if you're set to go.
