Fall is my favorite season. Mainly for the weather – it stays in the high 70s here through till November normally and we’ve had many a Halloween where the children have been sweltering in their costumes – and it is perfect once the humidity dissipates towards the end of September. You can’t beat a gorgeous, crisp Fall day in the Georgia mountains. However, another key reason for loving Fall is all the fabulous boots that I can start wearing. I have always been and will always be a boot fan.
Many of you who have been reading my posts for a while will be familiar with my outrageous Frye obsession. Though I am pretty miffed with them right now due to their recent partnership with Coach, I am still loving some of the new Fryes that have been released this Fall – many embracing the studded trend. My favorite are these Jenna boots in gray that I have already treated myself to and wore the other week.
They also do a tall version but I think I prefer the shorter version – but maybe that’s because I already have the Veronica slouch which is similar but without studs.
I’m currently lusting over the Phillip harness studded but I can’t decide which to get – the short would look great with skinny jeans and my All Saints jumpers, but the tall are slim enough in the calf to wear with a knitted dress and tights – and I love the impact of the zip all the way up the calf. They both have a great flat heel too, perfect for chasing after children.
I am also loving the Vince Camuto Autumn boots that are sitting waiting to be worn at home. After buying them at DSW I discovered them $60 cheaper on the Vince Camuto website so I ended up returning the first pair to DSW and getting the black and taupe for *almost* the price of one pair:) I justified it don’t worry! The taupe by the way is very much more of a taupe color than the ivory that is depicted on their website. I’ve never worn this brand before so will be interested to see how $100 boots hold up compared to my Fryes.
Finally these are on my hit list too – but how many pairs of boots does a girl really need? They may be a little too similar to my Frye Shirley strappy boots to justify this one. Again at $100 they are a great bargain. I love the straps and buckles and both colors look fabulous on the Nordstrom website.
As it is past Labor Day now I think can get away with wearing light weight long sleeves and boots so today I am wearing my Express blush Zeldas, a Zara zip back top from the sale that was only $15, my H&M scarf, which only when I came to wear it for the first time today did I realize that it was actually a snood, all polished off with my Ash Thelma wedges which are coming into their own in the wet drizzle that Isaac is leaving us with.
A tad tired today after staying up to watch Michelle Obama’s speech – I have to say I thought she was incredible – passionate and sincere – she looked stunning too in a Tracey Reese dress and J.Crew pumps.
