Pinspiration Day 5 - Katie

Fall weather is jeans and boots for me.  Jeans and boots!  Jeans and boots!  And scarves!  And sweaters!  Oh, I love it all.  Really, I do.  The cold I can do without.  But breaking out my favorite boots makes up for it.

This is actually an outfit without much “pinspiration,” as I’m often found in jeans, boots, a sweater and scarf in the cooler weather.  But since burgundy is a pretty popular color this year, I took my inspiration from the color and warmth of this photo.

Burgundy sweater (Express.  Probably eligible for “vintage” status, as it’s from when Express was Express Worldbrand.) and dark denim (Old Navy) with my favorite cognac boots and a black-and-white paisley pashmina-style scarf (Target).  A pair of turquoise earrings (Banana Republic), my go-to watch, and my 2nd favorite gift to myself, a soft grey Kate Spade purse, were my accessories of the night.  The coolness of the night made me realize that I really need to invest in a nice leather or faux-leather jacket for Fall and to complete this look.

What you can’t tell about this photo is that moments later my three friends and I were cantering through the streets of Asheville to the clip-clop of a found halved coconut.  I kid you not.
