Oh, My Dear

Dress: Dear Creatures | Boots: Macy's

It's September and the days are getting shorter. The sun starts to disappear around 7 o'clock. Last night Tim and I drove around town in search of a food truck that we never ended up finding. There is a red food truck that just opened up in our town and their signature dish is a four-cheese mac & cheese with panko bread crumbs on top. It's been chilly here, so we've been craving warm comfort foods. After we drove around for about 30 minutes without seeing that heavenly mac & cheese truck, we decided to just go to a takeaway place and get not-so-good noodles and go back home to watch a movie. Tonight we'll be making homemade mac & cheese. There's nothing wrong with mac & cheese two nights in a row, right?

Ok. Enough about our mac & cheese adventures. I can't stop wearing this dress. It's so silky soft and has the prettiest collar. I get compliments every time I wear it. And I just bought these boots for fall. My go-to black boots have officially bitten the dust, so it was time to invest in some new ones. I think there are plenty of adventures ahead for me & these new boots of mine. 


  1. Such a beautiful dress! It's the perfect fall color. I recently had to get rid of my favorite black boots too...I can't wait to find a new pair!

  2. The days really are getting shorter, though I must admit, I'm sort of glad. It makes taking pictures easier because the light is better earlier in the day. Love this dress! Alex


  3. I've been particularly obsessed with boots and Dear Creatures lately so this post is positively perfect! You are such a doll Christen.

  8. You sure look quite... Autumnesque! Ahah! Love the dress, looks so good paired with such cool boots.
    Autumn is my favourite season and I'm ready for it - the crunchy leaves remind me of chips.
    I would eat anything cheesy 7 days a week... So I don't judge your craving :)

    Haha, that mac&cheese sounds really good, and we've definitely eaten mac&cheese two nights in a row before. Sometimes, it's irresistible.
