What a true fall dress looks like

Today it is freezing outside! Seriously, I think it actually froze last night. Just checked the weather website and it is 32 (crap where is the little temperature circle thingy button????) degrees outside. This actually caused me to get excited because I bought a TRUE fall dress while in California that I haven't had the chance to wear yet. Now, my friend Kelli, who lives in sunny San Diego, would have us believe that fall dresses are the same as summer dresses but in different colors. I.E. still light, still sleeveless...so not Fall. I have decided to set the record strait as she is obviously confused and has completely turned her back on Utah fashion.

Now the first thing you will notice is that I am like 2 feet taller than my receptionist. This is not an optical illusion. Second you will notice that my dress is long sleeved AND I have leggings on! My receptionist has a sweater dress with a long sleeved shirt underneath. She has fabulous tan legs so she doesn't have anything underneath and is consequentially sitting at her desk with a space heater. Yep, pretty sure as soon as Kel sees this picture she is going to want to move back home.

Who knew someone named Summer was so good at Fall?

You two are the picture of autumnal elegance. What the hell does San Diego know about autumn anyway? Do palm fronds turn orange and fall? Are they even allowed to have an opinion? I vote "No".

Hello, Summer.

Kel is going to be so jealous! I bought two new sweater dresses last week and I love them so much. I finally wore one to dinner on Saturday, with tall boots and a cashmere wrap. I love the fall!

Just so you know, bitches, I own a few sweater dresses. One for each day of the year when I need them, so I never have to repeat an outift. You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.
And just for that, I'm posting more cute fall fashion on my blog as soon as I have time.

BTW, Scott? San Diego knows enough not to live in a climate where you never want to go outside between the months of November and May, even if we do have to pay ungodly amounts of money to do so. So shut it!!!!

Lookout everyone! Kelli fell out of a grumpy tree hitting every branch on the way down this morning.

I think you all need some flashdance legwarmers…that would be awesome…

I think it's cute Hemley doesn't realize we probably all do have leg warmers. Mine are glitter pink.

Ditto Sarah, except purple. And I don't think Helmey is cute so much as.....ignorant? And my mom agrees.

I love when tall women aren't afraid to wear heels. Or is your receptionist just exceptionally short?
