Dresses-and-boots weather is my absolute favorite. Seriously. I’m just gleeful this time of year.

I wore this to the dentist. First cavity in over TEN YEARS, people, and I’d forgotten how awful the novocain/drilling/recovery experience can be. I had to run to the post office right afterwards and I’m pretty sure I left a little drool-pool on the customer service counter. But man, the gals back at the dentist’s office dug my scarf. So I guess we’ll call it even.

  • gorgeous colors, sally. the scarf ties it all together nicely!

  • FAB scarf! And I love the purple/red combo on you. Wish we had boot weather….(sniff!)

  • Carmen

    I LOVE that color combo! So pretty – season appropriate and still bright and happy.

    Boots and dress weather is my favorite too. It’s taking a long time to come here in California! Can’t believe I’m going to say this – but I’m SICK of summer!

  • I have that scarf and it is my absolute favorite one. I wear it with EVERYTHING.

    • Sal

      Yay! I’m hoping now that it’s scarf weather, mine will get more use. It’s such a fun pattern.

  • Cannot *wait* for boots weather. I really like this color mix, and of course, the boots! Oh, and how much do I hate drilling and Novocain too – I feel your numb : >

  • Michelle

    I just swooned.

    The scarf, the boots, the colours! You look absolutely fab.

    You were very brave to wear that lovely scarf to a drill-and-fill session with the dentist! (Those paper bibs don’t always hold together….)

    • Sal

      Oh, I took off the scarf for the festivities. 😉

  • Karen O

    Trying to figure out how you tied that scarf – I like!

    • Sal

      I KNEW I should’ve taken some photos of the tie! I just twisted it over and over so it was wound tight, then looped it three times and tied.

  • Erika A

    Sorry to hear about the tooth! 🙁

    I love this combo though. The purple and red are so smashing together (they’re my two favorite colors) and the scarf really ties it all together. Very autumnal and fun!

  • Eliana

    Boo cavity,but at least it’s been ten years. Love, love the red and purple. Your outfit posts always give me ideas to try.

  • Love that scarf! It will work with so many different things.

    • Anna

      I have admired that scarf since you first showed it. Wouldn’t it be fun to gather all your outfit posts that feature it?
