Officially obsessed with boots.

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.

      I was lucky one day when I went in H&M and they had lots of great animal print scarves – I had no idea this one was a loop but since your tutorial that’s how I’ve been wearing them anyway:) Good to hear from you xx

      Thank you – the Thelmas are fab – I was in 2 minds for a long time after seeing Kat on DoesmyBumLook40 wearing them – but I love them and they are so easy to wear!

    Definately loving the outfit today – think you’ve convinced me to give the skinny jeans a try when I eventually get down to the goal weight (only another 7lbs to go!!). I am also really looking forward to boots weather and am considering declaring it appropriate purely because it’s September despite the fact it’s still in the 90’s!

      I love the nude tones and it feels casual and relaxed – I’ve worn boots all summer here with shorts – I think anything goes really especially when we’re going into freezing cold AC too! It is past Labor Day after all:) Good luck on the weight loss too!! I’m eating FAR too much right now!

    a bit surprised about the weather,I was still wearing a sleeveless dress and flipflops today here in austria…I have to admit I hate fall/winter clothes(what kind of boots to combine to which trousers,etc…)but your blog is very helpful!

      Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your blog:) I’m still waiting for it to get ‘cool’ here in Atlanta but that hasn’t stopped me from wearing my Fryes:) Some of their new styles this season are fabulous – definitely more fashion centric than they are normally – many of their styles have been around for years. Once you try a pair you’ll be hooked – they last a lifetime:)
