chunky. block. heels. of. the. moment.

New season, new shoes — or so the mantra goes. If summer was dominated by my obsession with pom-pom embellished sandals, then fall might as well be synonymous with chunky block heels. Personally, I'm more of a ballet flats kind of girl, but don't be mistaken, that doesn't stop me from still yearning after a pair of these stylish stompers. The chunkier the heel, the more fun that can be had. Right?

Just a little back story: My infatuation with chunky block heels actually goes way back to circa 2013 when Carly Heitlinger of the College Prepster owned a pair of J.Crew's Etta cap-toe pumps (check 'em out here if you need a refresher and see this outfit for reference.) As fate would have it, J.Crew brought back a very similar version of their iconic cap-toe pumps this season. *Praise hands emoji.* Because I loved Carly’s Summer Fridays-inspired #OOTD so much (more like borderline obsessed), I decided to fall-ify the look a bit with a more season-appropriate dress. Just how French girl-chic is this silk windowpane ruffle-hem dress from Madewell? Throw a suede moto jacket into the equation (and maybe this felt fedora) and you’re all set for a day at the office or a low-key weekend spent brunching and doing autumnal things. Count me in, please. :)
