Bare versus bear: Styling a faux-fur bomber jacket with a button-front denim jacket and lace-up booties

I’m not sure how long I’ll still be able to get away with doing bare legs this season…but considering that we’re already into the second half of November, I certainly can’t complain if today was the last time!!

Topping off this denim skirt and turtleneck combo with my super-snuggly “teddybear” bomber did manage to ward off a good bit of the autumn chill, though; I’ve had this little jacket in fairly regular rotation recently…so don’t be surprised if it pops up in another blog post very soon!!  And my edgy new laceup booties, too; I just debuted them here last Thursday and – surprise! – they’re already on my feet again!!  😄

But let’s get back to the season for a moment, shall we??  Isn’t it crazy that Christmas and the New Year are once more right around the corner??  I’ll be honest – November is a month that I’m always happy to have in my rearview mirror (to my mind, it’s kind of the “no man’s land” of the calendar!) but I still can’t believe that 2016 is this close to being over!!

Is the holiday spirit finding its way to you yet, dear readers??  And are you sartorially ready for winter…or are you – like me! – desperately squeezing a few more fall-inspired ensembles out of your wardrobe before “warm woollen mittens” take over??  As always, I’m looking forward to your comments!!

    What a lovely autumnal ensemble! Glad that you are still getting away with bare legs. However, I am also chuckling–here in the SW desert I was so eager to get out the tights this past week, with cool mornings and only slightly warm days, that this is exactly what I did a day or two! It was silly, really, but I love the layering I get to do for 3-4 months of a year and want as much of it as possible.

    I do love that jacket on you so much! And the boots.
