Fall 2020 Dresses + Boots.

Image above featuring Paris Texas snakeskin boots (currently on sale for about 50% off in the colorway above; look for less with these), which I absolutely drooled over all last winter. Finally snagged a pair for myself and can’t wait to trot them out this fall.

Believe it or not, Mr. Magpie and I have been talking about Thanksgiving plans lately. Last year, his parents came up to us for the occasion, but so much is up in the air thanks to COVID-19 that we’ll just have to wait and see what’s feasible. I keep tossing out the idea of renting a house upstate for the holiday and inviting my sister-in-law and his parents to come out with us, but we shall see…

Regardless, the conversation has left me with visions of fall foliage, crisp air, and, inevitably, a wardrobe to accommodate the change in seasons. In no small part inspired by Ulla Johnson’s last cool weather collection, I’m especially into the idea of wearing patterned fall dresses with boots this season. Below, some chic dresses for the cooler temps…

THE PERFECT THANKSGIVING DAY DRESS

THIS FLOATY DARK FLORAL

THIS DRAMATIC ANTIK BATIK

FASHION-FORWARD HORROR VACUI

ZARA MAGIC

THIS BEAUTIFUL SEA (60% OFF!)

THIS WHITE MINI (A DEAD RINGER FOR ULLA AND WOULD LOOK PERFECT WITH A TALL SUEDE BOOT; LOOK FOR EVEN LESS WITH THIS)

DOEN DREAM (ON SALE FOR $135!)

SMOCKED LEOPARD

BEAUTIFUL J. CREW POLKA DOT FIND

I would wear any and all of the above with a suede boot, and this $225 find is PERFECT. Love the low heel, the height, the slouch. Other options I’m into:

ULLA PERFECTION

THESE TAUPE LOVELIES

OOH LA LA ISABEL MARANT

MORE REFINED BOOTIE STYLE (I HAVE A PAIR OF BLACK SUEDE ONES ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THESE THAT I LOVE TO THROW ON WITH MAXIS AND TIGHTS IN THE WINTER)

NOT SUEDE, BUT DEAD OVER THESE CROC TALL BOOTS AND THESE PYTHON ONES (LOOK FOR LESS HERE), TOO

Not boots, but two other pairs of fall shoes I am loving right now: these loafers, these pointed-toe flats, and these $85 stunners. I guess I’m in a croc mood, because platforms are not even my style but I stared at these for a long, long time and you know I have long eyeballed the Lee Radziwill handbag from Tory Burch in croc

P.S. Jeans to try this autumn — and maybe a dramatic collar to pair with them.

P.P.S. Neighbors.

P.P.P.S. The slimmest of griefs.
