I am over-the-moon giddy about some new recent staples I've purchased for fall - classic pointed (and bedazzled!) black flats, oversized glasses and a reversible black and white bucket tote that is seriously perfect for any occasion because it is just that versatile. The bag and the shoes are no brainers...but I am still a little self conscious about the circle frames; they are really big but I loooove them! The feedback I am getting is mixed; "You look like the girl from cloudy with a chance of meatballs," or "you look like a hipster," or "I like them!" is usually the gamut - so it's a yes or a no. For me they are a yes so I guess that is what matters most :)
As for the new staples, they're meant to transition me into the next upcoming colder weeks. We have been experiencing below-normal temps, in the 50s, and it has been refreshing but actually pretty nippy to the point where I am reaching for fuzzy socks and a sweatshirt. It's annoying to me, above all, because when I am cold, looking cute is probably the first thing to go out the window. I need my oversized boy thermals, old sweatpants, and raggy slippers and most of all, a big huge warm blanket! All that and I'm good.
