Deanna's Unwritten Fashion Rule

Monday, October 1, 2012

Today marks my annual enactment of Deanna's Unwritten Fashion Rule- NO open-toed shoes after October 1!

And, yes, I am very serious- no more sandals,  no more flip flops, no more open-toed heels- not for this girl, at least, and not again until next Spring.  I have been a firm believer in dressing for the "season" for as long as I can remember.  I am always so happy to see Fall makes it's way back to the calendar, and pulling out the boots makes me giddy with delight each year.  

This little unwritten rule has certainly sparked debate with my fashion-forward friends and co-workers over the years, many of whom are happy to wear open-toed shoes well into the winter.  And that's ok.  I'm not necessarily offended to see others wearing open-toed shoes later in the year.  It's just not for me.

I think my love of dressing for the season is also based in practicality, though.  As we all know, even the warmest of fall and winter days usually start with chilly mornings and end with cool evenings, so the thought of cold toes peeking out just isn't for me.  Especially not when there are soooo many cute options for boots out there.

Now, to switch out that shoe closet, and step down off my soapbox- right into a pair of toasty warm riding boots.  Happy Fall, everyone!
