Y’all its finally cooling down here in Dallas! I’m so excited! After months of oppressive heat, I can open my porch doors and get some fresh air. Fall in Texas is so strange to me though. There really aren’t many trees that change colors and then lose their leaves. There also isn’t that wonderful crispness in the air that I love so much. I’m not entirely sure what I thought living in Texas would be like. I always had a romantic vision of cowboys on horses and bright stars at night- and still enjoying four seasons. That doesn’t happen here. Sigh.
Long-Sleeve Romper for Fall
Since Texas in the fall is very unpredictable, I came across this adorable romper and thought it would be perfect! It’s that awkward time of the season when we have to dress warm in the morning and then peel off layers by noon. This Old Navy romper was a great compromise for both ends of the spectrum. The best part is that it was on sale for $28! And it has pockets!
So, a few other things I’m pulling from my winter wardrobe are my long sleeve shirts, Hunter boots, blanket scarves, and vests (because I literally live in those half the year.) Of course, I’m wearing all of these things with shorts because jeans are just not happening until later this fall. Still too hot!
A few things I’ve noticed other Texas women doing with their fall style is taking classic fall clothing, such as flannel shirts or felt hats, and wearing denim shorts with them. It still looks fall-ish without sweltering in layers of clothing. Speaking of which, I’m dusting off my burgundy felt hat and bringing that out too!
Little Life Update
I’m trying to open up to you guys a little more through my blog and not just posting pictures of my (fabulous) outfits! So I want to share a little life update today! I’m working on my personal health a lot more and learning how to manage stress. Although, I’m not very good at it yet, I have found that running makes the stress manageable. Also, drinking tea in the evening is becoming a relaxing ritual that makes everything all better! See my post about the health program I’m part of if you’re in an exercise and stress rut too!
