I could almost hear the Texas sun laughing at me for attempting to shoot a fall look in the heat of summer. It was HOT. Such a hilarious example of living our "Instagram perfect" lives...if I hadn't mentioned it, you may've never realized how disgustingly gross I felt. Even though blogging can appear glamorous, easy or breezy...it's actually just VERY SWEATY. We can easily get so caught up in everyone else's perfect lives on social media, but the truth is, there is no such thing. Perfection is only illusion. The struggle is real and it's real for everyone...especially for me that day, trying to peel over-the-knee boots off after the sun attacked me. So there's that.
On to the outfit, since I did go to great lengths to shoot this look. The denim jacket is originally $98, currently on sale for $68! The studded detail is so fun...especially the star patches on the elbows. I'm not much for a grungy edgy style, but I do love unique pieces, as you probably know by now. Styling it with the lace top dress added a whimsical feel to the rocker chic vibe, but pairing it with the over-the-knee boots kept the edge alive...an interesting, contrasting combo.
