First This Season

This is the first time I'm wearing boots this season.  Part of me is sad for my toes being so constricted, the other part of me is happy because... well, boots are just so darn cute!

{Dress: H&M (similar), Boots: BCBG (similar), Scarf: Old Navy, Belt: Target, Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: David Yurman, Alex and Ani}

This dress actually has no shape and it pretty much forces me to wear a belt with it every time, which is fine.  Because I love belts.  Don't ask me how many belts I own.  I remember when I was younger I hated wearing belts.  I thought it was awkward.  After my last few posts about my love for my denim jacket and corduroy skirt, I've come to realize that everything I once thought was awkward back in the day is now cool.  Or maybe I'm just awkward now?  Who knows.  Happy shopping!

I love this whole outfit--those boots are adorable! I always laugh at what a funny adjustment it is to go from sandals to boots and closed-toe shoes come fall. My feet need to get used to it again!

Those booties are super cute! I'm still hoping to get another week or two of sock free toes, but yesterday really tempted me to put on my new pair of riding boots. Love the navy/ hot pink combo:)

Ha ha, I completely agree. . .I love the look of boots, but I love the feeling of free toes in sandals! You look adorable in this outfit. Love how the scarf and booties add a casual fee.

I adore boots! These neutral toned boots look great with your dress! xx

threadsandbuttons said...

Not awkward at all! I totally love that dress, and I think it looks great with the belt. Yea for boot weather!

Kathleen Lisson said...

I find a lot of belts awkward. I had to go to Paris to have a shoplady put the right belt on me, one that flattered my figure. These are good boots, I find that so many boots, especially the wedge platform boots that I see in shops this season, make my dainty feet look HUGE!

Alissa said...

I can't wait to start wearing boots! The mornings here in Kansas are cool enough for them but by the middle of the day I am sweating!

Gina said...

This is such a great outfit:-) I just love it, and the boots are fantastic. I have a few dresses that I feel have no shape and I'm thinking about taking them to the tailor. Can't decide if I should do that or just belt them. Hmmm.
You look amazing as always, and I love the backdrop for these pics:-)

Clare said...

You look gorgeous! I want that scarf!

What a great look. I adore because that dress can be worn so many ways + love it for fall with those booties and scarf. Happy Monday!

Nathyness said...

No, it's definitely all back in. I love belts too, but I don't own enough of them.

I should let you know that for the next few months I'm going to be a little green with envy of not just you, but every other blogger out there with all 4 seasons. Your super cute fall looks would make me look plain weird down here. Plus I'd be sweating profusely all the time. Not fun. By late October, maybe November we'll start to feel some chilly weather though. Until then, I will live vicariously through you and all my other fashion friends up north.

Happy autumn!

Loving how the scarf can double as a necklace here! Also like how you paired pink with blue! Totally know what you mean! There was a time when I thought neon could only be associated w/ the early 90s...and now I'm can't help but be drawn to it! haha and that's fashion!

Also following you on IG as well! Yay!

you are lucky to be able to wear boots right now, i have a few more weeks of summer. i keep checking the weather report to find out when the soonest day is that would be boot-appropriate weather. i love this outfit on you

lisacng @ expandng.com said...

You certainly aren't awkward, my dear! Those are some cute slouchy boots and love the blue of the dress. The backdrop, barn, is also super cool.

I was going to wear boots this weekend, but Mr. A talked me out of it because he said it was too early. LAME. I should have worn them because it was definitely chilly enough. Besides, it's September! I don't know why I listen to him.

Love this outfit on you. The boots are definitely adorable.

These short booties make your legs look so long and luscious! Like, like, love! And can I tell you how I have a theory that my toes are claustrophobic? Because I do...and I hate wearing shoes if it does not risk my life (ie lava rocks, more than 3 ft of snow, or 100+ degree pavement)

Aub said...

I have this scarf in yellow :) wishing I had the whole outfit. Cute!

Evani Gatsby said...

You're definitely not awkward now (but if you are, then I am too!) Also my toes totallllly hate being enclosed, I just love being barefoot and boots are awesome but I'll still miss sandals all winter. Cuuuute outfit, when I belt things, I end up looking like the michelin man. Haha

Stephanie @twenty-something said...

Love the outfit, and I love how this look is still summery even with the boots. As much as I hate to see warm weather go, I love boots and scarves and curling up on the couch with a blanket when the weather gets chilly. :) Great outfit Yi-chia!

Attracted to that kind of dress everytime I see or purchase one though I feel hesitant sometimes that I need to alter sides, but who cares right? as long as you feed yourself to feel and look good.:)

Those boots! If I could wear something like that here, but I have a happy feet and toes wearing sandals and open toe wedge all year round. But sometimes change can feel much better, right? Have a great week ahead!
