I found myself wearing lots of layers today. It was fun to pile them all on! This excitement I have for cool weather will fade soon, I assure you, and I'll be wishing for warm weather again before you know it. I'm so fickle. Anyhow, today I busted out my new "Roundabout Cardi" and LOVED it! It's super comfy and flowy...I can definitely see this being a well-worn piece this fall and winter.

These Miz Mooz "Siri" boots are the best purchase ever, by the way. They are the perfect fit for someone with chicken legs like me, as the shaft is on the narrower side. The material is soft and buttery, the details are great and they are SOOO comfortable. Highly recommend these! Just an FYI--I normally wear an 8.5 in 9 in shoes and I took these in my normal Miz Mooz size--8.5.

One more thing I got to layer on for the first time today was my new Pansy Corset Trench Coat that my hubby got me for my birthday last month. I adore it!!

Since the rain has started up I decided to go searching online for some rain boots tonight. I actually bought a pair last year but they were from Gap Outlet and boy, you can tell I only paid about $30. They are destroyed...totally weathered after just one season. Sad. =( It just proved to me that I should have gone with my gut last year and picked up the boots I really wanted....a pair of Hunters! So, armed with a coupon code from Piperlime and a handy rewards card, I was able to pick up my beloved Hunters for a great price.

How cute will these be with my Pansy Corset Trench?!!

Rainy Day Gear

All I need is a cute yellow polka dot umbrella now and I'm ready to face the rain!

We have fun plans to skip town for the weekend and enjoy some much needed family time. I'm looking forward to it...hopefully it won't go by too fast!

Enjoy your weekend...see ya next week!


  1. Yay, bring on fall :) You will heart your hunters! And the welly socks! They are so cozy. I think I wore mine more than any other boots last year. Oh, and the pink is very fun with that trench!

  2. TOTALLY loving those rain boots, although we are in the middle of an epic drought so thinking I would not be able to justify them... dangit. And the Welly socks... who knew? Of course, living in Texas, don't have much use for them but OH SO CUTE!

  3. Ooh - would you mind letting me know your thoughts on the Siri boots? I have been waffling about getting them. Are they comfy? True to size? Any weird ankle gaping? =) Thanks so much!!

  4. Erin--Glad to hear you love your Hunters! WHich socks did you get?

    Orangies Attic--I lived in TX for 4 years and I can totally understand not needing rainboots too often!

    fizzy.rain--So the Siri purchase EVER!!! If you are on the fence, I say go for it...I'm so happy with them. I have chicken legs so it's hard to find narrow shaft boots but these are fabulous! I found no weird ankle gaping at all...they fit like a glove. I normally wear an 8.5-9 in shoes and I bought these in an 8.5 (my normal Miz Mooz size). They are a perfect fit. Make sure to get them on Endless right now as they're 30% off if you get them!!

  5. I live that trench on you and I think the pink hunters go perfectly with it. I wish I would have gotten the trench before it sold out.

  6. Super outfit today. I love the cardi color. I could rock that cardi pregnant (-: I need to check out Down East Basics. Nice to get things I can wear now and later.

  7. This is the perfect fall outfit! You look adorable! I totally want those rain boots :)

  8. I love your outfit, that cardi is super cute! And I love your new trench coat too! The pink hunters are perfect with it. I tried on hunters but they were too big in the shaft for me. Oh well, I love my burberry ones!

  9. I saw that coat at Anthro too... it's adorable!

  10. Adorable! I love your raincoat, and paired with the pink Hunters, too cute! I've been coveting the Hunters as well, I'll be anxious to see if you really love them!

  11. Very cute look. Thank you for the info on the boots. As someone who indeed has chicken legs I can't wait to check them out.

  12. Love your outfits, especially the first one. That aqua necklace is great! I'd love some of those pink boots.. :)

  13. totally amazing coat, would make me pray for rain!
