I am enjoying the beauty of autumn... nothing compares to how magical this season is in Canada! Cooler temperatures call for cold weather wardrobe which is my favorite :) Colder weather offers a great opportunity to experiment with your clothes and layering. But most important, boots are back! and boy, do I love boots!
I received a fabulous request about finding a perfect pair of flat boots! Flat boots are an essential for winter. Living in Canada has taught one thing, that well-made footwear and outwear are essential. Also, touches of warm wool and cashmere will take you through a nasty winter with a feeling of coziness and chic-ness.
I recommend thick leather boots with a durable sole, and recommend against suede for winter. After spending $500 on Michael Kors suede boots, they were ruined by salt and moisture within 2 months. Even suede protective spray wasn't helpful. So my suggestion, is to save wearing suede for spring and autumn when the weather is more dry. For snowy days, wear leather or patent leather... Actually, I really love my patent leather 80%20 boots for very snowy days, snow just slides off. In my opinion, if you take a good care of leather it will last for couple of seasons so finding a good pair is worth while!
My new pair of flat boots are by Michael Kors. As for the rest of my outfit which I wore to grad school seminar and then a day of fun... I kept it simple and cozy. Friday, was a cold day and this outfit kept me warm! I think that autumn is also a perfect time to accessories... so have fun with hats, gloves, scarves, stockings, knee socks....
