The calendar says October, but the weather says somewhere between July and August... That's Texas for ya! While you want to dress for the season, no one wants to be sweating bullets in jeans and a sweater when it's sunny 70's outside!
My favorite compromise to the ever-changing weather is to mix colorful jewel-tones & bright neutrals with a loose blouse, shorts and booties or... a ROMP. This particular romper I got from Top Shop has the perfect mix of teal, turquoise, rosy red, and orange, as well as the fall staples - bold copper and chestnut brown. This flirty, floral pattern is so perfect for lunch on the patio with girlfriends or a casual date with your crush.
To complete this look, I threw on the OH-so versatile I Duffle Dare You in Amber Boa. This bag matches my boots perfectly... I love when that happens! Luckily for you, I designed this leather with various amber hues, so it will go with every brown boot in your closet. With plenty of room for all of those winter layers, this Duffle is my favorite fall add-on. It can sit comfortably on your arm with the top handles, or be worn as a cross-body when you need to be hands-free. Best part of all? There are outside pockets on the side to keep your phone for easy access.
So basically you should have ordered this bag like yesterday am I right?! I Duffle Dare You not to waste anymore time... ;)
