Will it Ever be Chilly Again?

I've been sick pretty much all week. No outfit posts, cause if you've seen one set of sweats, you've seen 'em all. Now that I'm feeling some what human, I've started thinking about Xmas shopping. And the fact that it feels nothing like Xmas around here. It's still 80 degrees outside. But my brain is already wondering what sweaters I'll be purchasing for January when it finally starts to dip below 70. I love huge oversized comfy sweaters that I can wear with skinny jeans and boots or over a maxi dress.

Gray Skies

I tend to get a specific color in my head and then spend the next few weeks buying anything that catches my eye in that color. Lately it's been gray. Which is so unlike me. I usually lean towards brighter colors. 

Being relatively tall for a female, I can get away with longer items like maxi dresses and this duster. It's still too warm to wear the duster outside, but my classroom is freezing. An All Saints store recently opened up in a local mall here. Talk about making a girl happy! Now I no longer have to wait to get an item through the mail. I love instant gratification. The minute I put this dress on, I knew it was mine.

I have a sock fetish. I have no idea how many knee high and otk socks I own. Different colors, designs, and patterns. And I keep buying them. I'm running out of room to keep them but that doesn't stop me. I have socks that still have the tag on them. I loved these, they're crotched, sparkle, and have two small heart-shaped buttons on the side. Do you have an item of clothing you just can't stop buying?

Lita Love

I'm absolutely loving my Litas. I had originally wanted to buy them in the purple suede, but unfortunately Solestruck was sold out of that color. I've been wanting grey suede boots anyway, so why not. These are amazing. I've had so many compliments on them and I love the fact that they make me 6'1". I threw this outfit together to run to class today. It's actually feeling like fall around here. Or at least what us South Floridians consider fall, a balmy 70 degrees. I can see these getting placed into heavy rotation in my wardrobe.

                                                               Sergeant Pepper Maxi Coat Free People

I will not be buying this coat. I will not be pairing it with skinny jeans and OTK boots, or a mini dress with tights and booties. I want to do all of that, but buying this coat makes no sense. Winter in South Florida is practically non existent. This coat would sit in the back of my closet and taunt me. I want it. Badly. But the grown up side me is telling me it would be a silly thing to do. I love Ft Lauderdale, I've lived here most of my life and I'm not a fan of cold weather. Cold weather clothing on the other hand, makes me smile. Sweaters, coats, and boots. Boots, my true love (my boyfriend knows and understands). So although I want to, I will not be buying this coat. Or any of the other millions I'm falling in love with this season. Instead, I'll head to the beach on this warm November day and hit he waves.
