We’re finally approaching autumn, the season of the year that arguably has the best fashion. It’s my personal favorite season, because it has everything to do with gorgeous leather boots, cozy sweaters, and all the fall fashion. When the season transitions from summer to fall it brings funky plaid, buttery soft cashmere, and moody utility jackets. But there is one downside to the transition to fall, the weather is drastically different at 8am when you’re leaving the house and 5pm when you’re leaving work. Do you choose to sweat it out in stylish leather boots? Or repeat those sandals you’ve been wearing all summer.
