This is my first real fall look this year and I'm so excited for the new season! I pulled out all my coats and hats and sweaters from storage this weekend and to be honest I'm a little overwhelmed with the quantity of clothes I have... Fashion blogger problems, I guess. :)
Too bad garage sales aren't a thing in Italy, I might be able to make a pretty neat sum in a pretty short time if they were, haha. So, I'm drastically downsizing my closet right now and getting rid of everything I don't want to wear any more, but at the same time adding a few new pieces for good measure. As they say, out with the old and in with the new!
These handmade leather boots by Atitlan Leather are the most recent addition to my closet and I'm incredibly happy with them. (Check this post to find out more about the brand.) They just arrived in the mail a few days ago from Guatemala where they were handcrafted by talented local artisans and I couldn't wait to start wearing them. At first they looked like they would need some breaking in, as the leather was new and tough, but after just one (!) day of wearing they fit like a glove and I walked for three hours in them today comfortably. This is what I call amazing craftsmanship!
I have a feeling that this look here is going to become my uniform this fall. Or shall I say momiform? A pair of skinny jeans tucked into leather boots, a felt hat and an oversized cardi. Nothing groundbreaking, but comfortable and feminine. Would you agree?
What is your uniform this season?
Hat: BCBG Max Azria
Boots: Atitlan Leather
I did my loose curls for this post with the Irresistible Me Diamond hair straightener in about 15 minutes (I'm getting good at this, guys). In case you missed it, you can read my full review of this wonderful flat iron here.
