BORN CHARCOAL BOOTS - the obsession of FALL clothes begins

I love dressing for the FALL, it is my absolute favorite season. The boots, the tights, the furs, the coats, the rich fabrics - who can resist the luxe styles? When the NORDSTROM 1/2 Yearly catalog came out, I poured over it page-by-page to see if there was anything I couldn't live without. 

I squealed with delight was pleasantly surprised when I saw the perfect pair of charcoal gray boots on sale. If you remember from last year, I tend to be a 'walking-gray-bomb' during the winter and I have been searching for the perfect pair of charcoal boots for YEARS. They always seem to look cheap or are an odd shade of blue-gray. 

This BORN pair is perfect with it's comfortable heel and stylish hardware. LUCKY, LUCKY ME - Mr. C bought me a pair while we were in San Diego and they just showed up at the house! He's so thoughtful (and probably tired of me carrying around the catalog and asking if he's seen my new favorite/coveted boots.....).

There were a couple of other photos in the catalog that were inspiring - rich Italian burgundy brown leather paired with gray striped tights (of course...more gray).

I'm also loving the pairing of purple shoes with the gray tights - this will be a great way to add color to my multi-layered gray outfits. I'm also thinking  the turquoise tights could be fun if paired with a simple sheath dress. However, my all-time favorite colored tight is a rich ruby red/burgundy. This color looks both luxurious and expensive when paired with winter white and other jewel tones.
