Fall . . . in Florida?!?

After three days of the most miserable weather you can imagine (I'm talking humidity, heat, rain and just all around doom and gloom), we woke up to sunshine and temps in the '70s, people! This is newsworthy, my friends!! Of course, I had no idea it would be so cool this morning, so both my my kids were shivering in their short sleeved shirts, but still, it was a nice change from the heat we're usually battling well into November! Now, I do realize that in a day or two, we'll probably have our high temps back, but for now, I'm happy with this little reprieve. This lovely cool weather got me to thinking about fall and all that it brings. Here are a few things I'm excited about debuting once summer bids us adieu. 

1. Bright tights! 

I've never before ventured into the bright tight wearing trend, but I'm excited to attempt it this year! Maybe I'll crash and burn . . . but maybe not. We'll see. =)

2. Boots

I had one pair of black boots that I wore every winter, until last year when I wore them to their death. Now, I'm bootless and on the prowl for a few good pair! Flat boots, stiletto boots, booties? I want them all! As I do have a birthday this month,I've already been keeping an eye on 6pm.com to see if anything screams "You need me for your birthday!" But so far, nothing has. lol

3. Cozy sweaters

There's really nothing I like better on a cool day than a huge, cozy sweater. I like to pair it with skinny jeans and a pair of sky high heels, but I love how Kendi rocks the cozy sweater with tights and shorts. Hmmm... maybe I'll give that a try?

What about y'all?  What are you looking forward to busting out when cool weather arrives and summer is gone for good?

I have tried the colored tights trend but not the bright ones you have shown here. They do look cute with the all black outfits though!

Kayla and I are both looking forward to bustin' out the boots! We have a remix coming up for boots after the Fashion Challenge!

I am so looking forward to wearing the infinity scarf that I started to knit last fall, but didn't finish before it got too warm!
I think bright tights will suit you!

I look forward to big, cozy sweaters too. Never mind that I run hot and never end up wearing them. :)

I love colored tights and boots. I did a happy dance in my closet yesterday when it was in the 60's in Michigan and I could pull on my boots again:) I also love my sweaters as well.

Oh, boots! I have spent the last few years carefully cultivating my boot wardrobe, and I am happy to report that I think I've finally completed it. I am so ridiculously excited to start wearing them all again :)

Oooooooh, bright tights make me happy!! :0)
The weather where I live is always cool... we wear sweaters and jeans year round. I sort of miss those Florida, year long Summers. Sort of... I don't miss the humidity or the cockroaches, though! ;0)
