Like any true romantic, fall makes me reach for dark, floral patterns and feminine details. To balance out that vibe, I occasionally drift toward something a little more rugged like these Hinge ankle boots from Nordstrom. The side slit had me at hello and is a great update to a classic boot. They look great with jeans or bare ankles. Since the weather has only just started to feel like fall, I took advantage of the opportunity to wear these boots with bare legs. And when I can top off a look with my floppy hat, I am pretty much in own personal fall heaven. I wore this outfit (sans hat) to my sorority’s alumnae association founder’s day celebration. It was equal parts comfy and cool-girl dressy for a relaxed yet special occasion fall brunch.
