It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s hot and it’s humid and I’m in pain. I’m suffering through two blisters because I wore booties when it’s hot and humid because I’m so over summer. Damn it, weather, isn’t it time for fashion’s favorite season?
There’s no way around it: Autumn is simply the best. As a pale redhead (albeit a fake redhead, but that’s beside the point) with a layering obsession, fall is the greatest time of year. Last fall was spectacular; I vividly recall amazing times with friends, crisp breezes, a fantastic Thanksgiving party, beautiful runway shows, the triumphant return of the Salted Caramel Mocha and Caramel Apple Milkshake… Oh yeah, and the outfits I dream of every day not lucky enough to land in this most sacred of seasons. I’m about ready to make a fall fan club.
You know what else happened last fall? Oh, Julia Ann was named the best written fashion blog in the judged and people’s choice categories at the inaugural Saint Louis Fashion Blog Awards. And I’m still over the moon about it. The 2014 Saint Louis Fashion Blog Awards are on the horizon, and nominations are now open! If you like this site—or any of the other fantastic St. Louis fashion blogs that exist—please head over and fill out this nomination form; I appreciate your support more than you know, guys and dolls.
Now, back to fall outfits. There are countless fashion-related finds I miss during the hot months; here are a few of my favorites.
