I don’t know about you, but from time to time I get bored with my wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong, I love the clothes that I have, but after a while, they lose their awe and I’m stuck wearing the same outfits over and over again. Sometimes I find myself running for the bus in the morning on the way to work because I had been trying to put together a new look with my old stuff. Needless to say, when I am running for the bus, more often than not, I always end up wearing something that I didn’t want to wear.
I love getting dressed in the summer mainly because it’s so easy. All I have to do is throw on a dress, or skirt and tee shirt, cute sandals and I’m good to go. It’s a carefree attitude that leaves the minute the first crisp day appears. I had thought that after the snow we had at the end of October, the end of warm weather was upon us, but it is not until now that I think fall has officially arrived.
Gone are the days of sundresses and sandals; scarves and gloves are on the horizon. No more bare legs…its stockings all the way. I never used to be a fan of stockings. Either they were too bold or too plain, but they are finally making ones that are just right. You can get them in so many different patterns, it’s just uncanny. Even my plain sheer ones have a thin seam that runs down the back that gives them a retro look. You can literally buy stockings almost anywhere, but I like to shop for mine at The Limited. Even though it is primarily a clothing store, and primarily hard to find for that matter, their stocking quality is fabulous. My favorite stockings from them are my argyle ones. I think that they’re a sexy spin off of the classic, preppy pattern. Plus, when it is raining out, like it has been a lot lately, wearing a dress or skirt with rainboots and a cutely patterned stocking can add cheer to your day. So, until the warm summer comes back to me, I will not be discouraged.
