September 1st: not quite fall but feels like the official transition out of summer. For the next month, I’ll enjoy light jackets and bare legs without oppressive humidity. I bought my last pair of over-the-knee boots at Nordstrom nearly two years ago and they are still in awesome condition considering how much I wear them and how brutal Chicago winters can be; they were easily worth the investment! So, when I saw this other Stuart Weitzman pair with a low heel at Nordstrom, I knew I had to jump on them early for fear that they’d sell out before the first leaf falls. I did the same with easy sweater dresses while perusing Nordstrom. Yes, I bought myself two of them (hey, they’re different styles) and yes they’re both black; but honestly, they’re something I can wear now and later on with tights–even 9 months pregnant and especially postpartum! (I’m a seasoned shopper and can assure you that the best things often sell out before you can even wear them.) Dressing after a baby is born is quite a feat, but with these easy investments under my belt, I feel confident that I still be stylish this fall no matter what shape my body is in.
