Umbrellas + Wellies

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Today I took stock of my winter attire in our hall closet in preparation of the rainy days ahead. I fondled my fave cream double breasted trench coat (fashion success) but realized I have long lacked a cute umbrella and rain boots to go with (fashion tragedy).

I turned my attention online, randomly searching for a variety of rain boots and umbrellas to add to my wardrobe because life is too short for boring accessories especially for splashing in rain puddles which I always encourage. I love a great mix of pattern and/or color, here’s a fun combination of umbrellas and rain boots with personality!  just

Fave Fall Boots

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Y’all it’s fall boot season! This is the footwear I get most excited about and yesterday I fell down the rabbit hole otherwise known as “online fall boot shopping”. It’s still too hot here for wearing fall boots but those cooler days are coming, and I just couldn’t wait, I lined up all my favorites in my closet yesterday in anticipation and treated myself to these sassy platform ankle boots for autumn. Yeow!
