Tweed Rain Boots

September 26, 2016

Happy Monday. And happy fourth day of fall. I am not one of those peeps that freaks out over fall because of the sweater + pumpkin spice latté season, but it is nice to look forward to lower temperatures. You know, the days when you walk outside and sweat doesn’t immediately bead up on your face and your glasses fog up from the humidity so much so that you can’t see. Real life in Savannah. 

It’s not that I’m anti-fall, it’s just… why do we have to dress like the leaves on the trees in order to be in-season? Why do I need to wear a burnt orange sweater to be considered fall-ish? I don’t want to look like a pumpkin. Or a tree whose leaves are dead. Or a bale of hay, for that matter. What if I want to wear periwinkle? What if I want to dress like a piña colada instead of a PSL? Who doesn’t love a good piña colada?

Just sayin’.

Nevertheless, I saw these boots online and thought they were pretty darn acceptable. Fall in love. Or not, whatever.

I think these would be acceptable in a non-rain situation as well as a rainy one. I like a boot that can be flexible, and these are flexible and only $45. Good deal. 

Our trip to Naxos is coming to SST later this week, stay tuned…

Save & Splurge: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

July 17, 2015

Happy freakin’ Friday! Hallejuah. We made it. Congrats.

Today is the first day of the fantastic Anniversary Sale at Nordstrom, and I’ve been waiting for this sale to purchase some new boots for the fall. Boots are a very tricky thing to buy — I really do wear all of my boots all of the time so I don’t mind spending a little bit more money on them, but these “save” options are nearly identical to the more expensive ones. Regardless, they are all on mega-sale and would be great purchases.

Buying boots in the off-season (and on sale) is a good way to save some monies. If you need new boots, now is the time to buy them. Planning is key. 
Have a fabulous weekend in your new boots.
