Leaves on the ground and still summer-like temperatures! Not complaining, don’t get me wrong, but the end to this year’s summer (and beginning of fall) has been so weird. We have so many leaves around our house already and clearing them is my husband’s least favorite chore. The only upside to this time consuming task, is when our boys jump in the leaf piles and have so much fun just roaming around. The simplest things always make them the most excited and happy. Seriously, our kids are very outdoorsy so it doesn’t get much better than jumping in leaf piles for them. Anyways, I am taking advantage of the weather and wearing as many summer-like outfits as possible. Or semi-summer-like outfits, because here I added some ankle boots. In Chicago it’s almost impossible to wear ankle boots in the summer (in 90 degrees!), so the minute it gets a little cooler I am all into wearing them. I’ve said this before probably, but peep toe ankle booties and ankle boots are two of my favorite footwear styles, hands down!
