As you know I’m quite partial to a pair of ankle boots. Given the warm temperatures here it is really hard to justify another pair (not to mention the fact I already have more pairs than a girl can wear in the deepest, longest winter!). Peep toe booties though, well they are quite another thing entirely. I happened to be in Nordstrom on Friday returning some items when lo and behold I noticed their shoe sale had started. They had a single pair of these left on the rack. The Sam Edelman Asher – reduced by 40% here.
I actually tried an 8 instead of my usual 8.5 and it fits great – possibly because they are peep toe. Don’t let the height scare you either – they are ridiculously comfortable.
They are also available in a beautiful wine color here.
And grey here.
These are stunning too and Amazon currently have 20% off for Veterans Day – these are very Emmanuelle Alt – I can see her wearing these with a pair of cropped kick flare jeans and a white shirt. The Sam Edelman Abbie boot.
So for all my wishing for colder weather there are some benefits to a warm Fall! Check out these images for inspiration.
Don’t forget in the UK the Carine Roitfeld collection launched last week – the jackets are stunning – especially the fur bomber jackets but they do fit small.
Our clocks change tonight and then its the big day here on Tuesday – we voted on Thursday to avoid the lines but its pretty tense here thats for sure!

I wasn’t planning on making any purchases in the sales especially with heading on vacation this week. Well major fail – I have, as always, been tempted. You won’t be surprised that all my purchases are footwear. Shoes maketh the outfit!
Firstly check out MatchesFashion.com. They have Golden Goose marked down to £156.00 – SO much cheaper than the US and they will ship to the US DDP. I have ordered these that will hopefully be waiting at my Mum and Dad’s on my arrival!
I received my Vince Ninas in indigo (also available in nude) the other day – they are totally gorgeous as expected and they are now marked down further to $151 at Saks.
I’ve also found the snake print version on sale at Revolve Clothing! Most other stores still have these marked full price at $350!
Finally one not to be missed – Rag & Bone have an extra 25% off sale prices – ends today so be quick! Just use HURRAH25 at checkout for Newbury boots less than $200! Crazy!
The tan Newbury are marked at $370 but when you put them in the cart they are showing $265 – lots of sizes left! Then just apply your HURRAH25 to get them less than $200!
I have the leopard print boot – they were a Christmas present from my husband. Now marked down to $300 with an extra 25% off using HURRAH25!
So do you have as much will power as me? 😉
And finally my outfit today – thank goodness for AC – it’s in the 90s!
This is our first weekend at home for 3 weeks and we are all ready for it! We’ve had school testing for the past two weeks too so as a reward, and an early birthday present, I took Poppy to get her ears pierced on Thursday. I offered Hugh the opportunity too but oddly he wasn’t interested. My piercings may have put him off forever 😉
I wore my new Zara culottes which I love, but I’m not keen on this Zara top with them – I think a simple t-shirt would look far better. Hindsight and all that…These booties are awesome – they are slip on and run true to size and the heel is the perfect height to wear in the day. I plan to wear them a lot this summer with skinny jeans and crops. They remind me of the peep toe booties that Emmanuelle Alt loves to wear. They are currently on sale here.
Shoes – Nine West Glyn // Culottes – Zara // Top – Zara (old)
Yesterday I treated myself to a pedi and headed out to lunch. Some well deserved ‘me time’ before having fun with a house full of children in the evening. I love the lighter evenings and warmer weather – it’s great to see the kids playing outside with friends while I catch up with their moms! I kept it simple and I absolutely love this drapey Splendid top. Flip flops were required for the pedi!
Flip flops – Havaianas // Jeans – J.Crew (30% off with TIMETOSHOP) // Top – Splendid
Today we were all a tad tired and cranky after the late night shenanigans. Even the dogs get pissy if they don’t go to bed at their regular time! We ended up having a lovely lazy day and went to the movies to watch Home. I loved it – tears, laughter and a great soundtrack. Then we filled our stomachs with BBQ – mmmm baby back ribs all round thank you. A perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday. I know the sandals are love or loathe but I had at least 5 compliments wearing them today – they are certainly eye catching!
I’ve just landed on the sofa after a lovely bath and plan to spend the evening with a cup of tea and a few episodes of Mad Men. I’m dreading the day I finish all the episodes!
