Autumn Wedding Attire

In my opinion, the Autumn wedding is totally underrated. The weather is a bit cooler, allowing for the most beautiful of wedding attire, without the added pressure of sleeveless or short dresses that Summer weddings demand.

I bought this DVF silk maxi skirt for our Sunday Brunch post-wedding, and pulled it out for my very good friend Kate’s October wedding this last weekend. It made for the perfect statement piece to pair with all-black accessories.

On top of the statement, this skirt is incredibly comfortable. it is a wrap style, secured closed by two leather buckles on either side. AND, the buckles are adjustable! Such a great feature. I’m wearing a size 12 in these photos and with my recent fluctuation in weight, i’ve been able to tighten or loosen the buckles to fit appropriately.

Restated Love for the J.Crew Pixie Pant

Top, Pants, Shoes, Bag (here in black), Sunglasses (here with green lenses)

Today’s post is dedicated to my all-time favorite pant: the J.Crew Pixie pant. I’ve purchased over 10 pairs of these pants, and worn through each one. There is no other pant on the market that is comfortable, versatile, and makes me feel great.

The thing I love most about the Pixie pant is the way it hugs the body. The fabric is very thick, and the waist is high, making the legs and tummy feel sucked in and lean unlike thinner, less form-fitting pants.

Pixie’s are also 100% opaque unlike many other leggings. On busy days, i’ve been known to wear these pants to work.

Also, can we talk about these sunglasses. Amaze.

This post wouldn’t be complete without talking about the (albeit few) pitfalls of the Pixie pant:

1. They wear out. The zipper on these pants is in the back, and wears out over about 6 months of wear
2. They are dry-clean only. Not a deal breaker for me, but annoying for sure.
3. They aren’t cropped in length. I like all of my skinny pants to hit right above my ankle, and these are full length. I combat this issue by rolling the hems as I do with most of my bottoms, but it’s something that should be noted.

My Favorite Wide Calf Boots

screen-shot-2016-10-05-at-9-26-18-pm

If there’s one thing that’s SO. HARD. to purchase as a woman with thick calves, it’s boots. While i’m no expert, there are two pairs that i’ve found over the years that I just had to share.

The above is the Hunter Boots “Huntress” that i’ve posted about in this post, and this one. The calf circumference is 16 inches and they come to just about 2 inches below the knee. These boots are spectacular, and have been a staple in my wardrobe for many years.

The second is the Enzo Angiolini “Sumilo” boot. A classic just-below-the-knee black boot, with a 3 inch heel, you just can’t go wrong. These boots have been in my wardrobe for years (this post, as an example), and are so comfortable. They have a 16 inch calf circumference with leather that will give just a bit more than that for ladies with even wider calves. While i’m not the hugest fan of the buckle, I decided to keep these because of their versatility, and at the time when I bought them, so few options.

Are there any wide-calf boots you’ve found and love? In particular, please do send along recommendations for an over-the-knee boot for us wide-calf ladies.
