Red Trench & Prada Boots

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. I snapped these pictures before heading down to Texas last week, so it was still right in the middle of fall weather. This outfit is full of so many fall favorites: a great trench coat, the color red, dark wash skinny jeans, my first investment handbag, and the best shoes in my closet. 

While I was studying abroad, I started a blog to keep my mom up to date with all of my activities, and completely fell in love with blogging. I started reading Emily Schuman's blog daily (cupcakesandcashmere.com), and these pale pink booties kept popping up in her outfit posts. About halfway through the semester, I found a consignment store around the corner from my apartment, and Emily's booties were sitting in the window! I immediately went in, tried them on, and walked out with them. I couldn't believe my luck.

It was an outrageous purchase on my small budget, and I ended up surviving on pasta for the next month, but they make me so happy anytime I have a chance to wear them. Emily still wears them too!

The red trench was one of my first purchases after all of my clothes were stolen in college. I could only buy two coats to replace the ones I had lost, and I decided to buy a warm black peacoat and this red trench. A trench coat is a classic for a reason, and I must say I've worn this one countless times. It's waterproof, and has a removable fleece liner to make it wearable year-round, plus I love the color.

What's your favorite thing to wear in the fall?
