works cited: target dress and socks; j. crew belt, boots and sweater
As the weather turns, I've held out on wearing my coat by bundling up in wool sweaters and scarves. DC's fall weather is much more temperate than the midwest, and I've loved the slower pace of the leaves turning and the fact that I haven't yet had to wear tights. It also helps me continue my 90's-themed outfits--floral dresses, socks and boots, cargo jackets, big sweaters. Maybe it's just because I wore these things growing up, but I'd be thrilled if flannel, floral, and Doc Martens resurfaced for a second round in the style spotlight. Not to mention the great indie rock, a flood of coming-of-age comedies, low unemployment, independent bookstores in the pre-Amazon years. The only thing I'd leave behind are the too-short spaghetti strap tank tops I wore throughout 1998, shudder.
