I may not be in school anymore but there is something about the beginning of fall that makes me want to start fresh, try a new look, sharpen some pencils and take a calculus exam (kidding on that last part, can you imagine???? SHUDDER).  Even though every year around this time I cut layers into my hair bringing back the fringe, it still feels new and exciting each time.  Since my hair is very curly, summer humidity is the bane of my existence and long hair that can be worn in a ponytail/bun is essential to maintaining some semblance of dignity.  But as soon as the swamp-like temps lift, I run to the salon and give my hair some life – bangs and face framing layers to be exact.  With my new hair and this new Madewell dress, I feel sassier than ever.  The fabric on the dress is quite heavy, so it makes for a great transitional piece that I can wear from now until the spring. Tights and a sweater will make this even more cold weather friendly, and then back to bare legs and ankle boots come April.  And speaking of ankle boots, I cannot simply skip over these new Ash suede beauties.  Perfect for either dresses or pants, the low heel and roomy fit make these some of the most comfortable boots I own.  I will apologize now for the amount of times you may see them over the next few months – we can all just pretend it’s the first time each time, deal?
