OOTD: Woodland Creature

Good Morning and Happy Monday, everyone!

When it comes to style and comfort in the Fall- one of my go-to ensembles is typically a pair of flattering skinny jeans, a nice and loose-fitting sweater, and sturdy boots (which I actually posted about not that long ago!) but sometimes- like this past weekend, for example- I need to put something together that can beat both the leftover soaring Summer temperatures that are still lingering around here while simultaneously allowing me to combat the rain that has traveled my way from this most recent round of hurricanes and tropical storms that made their way up the coast.

Enter this lightweight and breezy olive green mini-dress I picked up around this time last year while preparing for a week-long stay that split my time between Las Vegas and San Diego. The fabric it’s made from- ridiculously soft and wrinkle-proof- helps me stay warm (but not too warm) while my trusty knee-high, faux-leather brown boots keep my feet dry when I’m stepping through puddles on my way into the office.

If it’s colder outside- I typically wear leggings with this outfit- but since it’s been unusually (and stifling) hot out these past few days- I’ve gone bare-legged. One of my co-workers who saw me in this last week told me that I looked like Link from “Legend of Zelda”- which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, right?

“It’s Dangerous to Go Alone! Take This!”

Regardless of whether or not I look like an elf on a mission- This is another Autumn-esque outfit I love to wear before it gets too cold outside for me to show much skin. It could be considered another transitional outfit between seasons- but it’s also easy enough to dress up or down year-round depending on the occasion it’s being worn for.

Not pictured? My brown saddlebag- which is pretty much glued to me at this point- but since I’ve shown it plenty of times across social media, I thought I could put it down for a few minutes while I posed for photos (it makes me look more like Link, anyway!)

  1. Nice outfit 🙂

    Just a question, when you say that your boots are keeping you dry even when you’re standing in puddles, Which depth of puddles are you speaking ? I’m looking for a fashion boots able to handle ankle deep puddles occasionally.

    Thanks 🙂

      1. Hi again,

        Thanks for the answer 🙂 and you can stay in this ankle deep puddles a couple of minutes (like wellies ?) or it must be less than a few sec to keep you dry (sry for this strange question but we plan a trip to venice with the acqua alta issue ^^)

      2. Hi! It’s not a strange question. No worries!

        I can stay in the puddles for a few minutes without my feet feeling damp. Sometimes, depending on how cold out it is or what type of socks/leggings I’m wearing- my ankles can feel chilly- but never wet!
