Autumn Casual in Vintage Burgundy Boots

I'm still learning to dress for Atlanta weather.  It's not cold or hot. This outfit turned out to be exactly what's needed for a sunny and mild autumn day. I'm wearing the fall weather staples -- jacket and boots but totally not necessary. A sweatshirt and ballet flats would have been perfectly fine this weekend.

I love it here. I can wear cute vintage boots and not worry about them being ruined by snow and ice. They're not very warm and they don't need to be because there's no arctic breeze whipping around my ankles.

I'm wearing a short sleeved silk blouse underneath my jacket. I'm all about shells right now. They're perfect to throw own when your jacket is making the statement. I've been dying to wear this one from the Double Trouble thrift haul. I'm so attracted to the color and boxy close fitting shape. It covers up food baby very well too.

As per usual on weekends, we laze and brunch (and break out the old bow and arrow). Just perfection. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse Saturday night. I let the babes indulge in too much junk and we spent Sunday dealing with projectile vomit on everything. She doesn't get sick very often and it totally freaked her out not to mention the mess. Puking in a carseat? Bad bad scene. Hashtag mom fail.

Last week's midweek thrift find included this fab vintage fitted dress. I'll have to ease up on brunch and Blue Bell to fit it. I just couldn't pass up this $4 find.

These motorcycles look great with my ensemble. Added a nice pop of color!

Troy, you are looking so svelte! The boots are fantastic. I dream of the day I can live in a warm climate. Fingers crossed on Husband's job transfer.

I love the combination of the yellow jacket with the oxblood-colored boots.
