When driving through the Scottish Highlands in June, I had an outfit packed away for a Highland OOTD shoot. It was, however, so unbelievably cold in Drumnadrochit that the dress I wanted to wear was not going to be enough. I had packed a sweater from Missguided and threw that on over the dress. It wasn’t anything new or revolutionary but I liked how it looked, and it opened up a whole new set of pairings in my closet.
I added a lot of dresses to my wardrobe this year. Mostly due to the hot & (somewhat) humid summer we had in Seattle again. Just because autumn rolled around doesn’t mean those dresses get boxed away for next summer. A good portion of my wardrobe is neutral colored so I can transition pieces from summer to autumn to winter to spring no problem.
And if I’m being totally honest, I love the way combat boots pair with dresses. I recently re-discovered my love of combat boots with this Shellys London pair. I also bought some Dr. Martens for the first time ever and am bewildered as to why I never purchased a pair before now. They’re now an essential part of my autumn style file.
Autumn is in full swing, and I’m enjoying the fact I’m branching out and mixing pieces that have sat in my closet waiting to be worn. Apparently they just needed a touch of cozy.
