Reasons Why I Love Fall

I truly think that every season has its pleasures and wonderful perks, but I would have to admit that my absolute favorite season is fall. I love the crisp, cool air and the beautiful colors! I love the smell of coffee brewing and the beautiful fall decorations that adorn shops and homes, and let's not forget the wonderful candles that come out this time of year, such as Pumpkin Spice and Cinnamon Apple.

Now a confession - while all of those things are what make fall so special, I have to admit that my all-time favorite part of the season is being able to wear coats and boots and scarves. All the time.

Sigh! I just love a beautiful pair of boots, there's nothing quite as lovely as pulling on a pair of leather beauties and heading outside in the cool air with a Pumpkin Spice Latte in your hand!

Here's a peek at some of the fall boots I've checked off my "wish-list" so far, I've added them to my wardrobe and I'm hoping to add some more, soon. By the way, these were all purchased either on sale, on eBay, or from thrift stores. Yes, I'm a savvy shopper!

These are the Bowtied Beauties from Anthropologie, they sold them last year but I happened to find them on eBay for almost half the price, and they were brand new!


These are the lovely Aldershot boots that are being sold at Anthro this year! I love them and I've been stalking them for several weeks but I couldn't bring myself to buy them for the full price. One day I happened to browse through the boot section on Anthropologie and I saw their 30% sale and I knew I had to grab these up as soon as I possibly could.


These are my cute little $25 thrift store find. They are brand new and in excellent condition.


So, I admit that I'm a boot-a-holic. I love seeing all of my boots lined up on top of my closet in a nice and neat row, it just makes me happy! Last year I was obsessed with coats. I perused eBay way too much searching for any cute coat that I could get my hands on, and although I still love coats and have way too many of them, my obsession has shifted to boots this year. Don't laugh.

So, what are on your fall wish-lists this year, or have you already purchased a pair of wonderful boots and you'd like to show them off? I'd love to see your fall wardrobe!

I hope all of you lovely people have a wonderful rest of the week, I'm going to be in Vancouver, Washington so I know that I will be loving my weekend. I get to see my beautiful cousin, Kim, and my cute little munchkin cousins whom I've missed way too much. And last but not least, I get to stop by Symposium for a heavenly treat...a Pumpkin Spice Latte (made with real pumpkin!).

By the way, my iTunes is now loaded with a vast assortment of wonderful Christmas albums and songs. Happy!

Beautiful Fall, everyone!

Shopping Trends

Sunday, June 13, 2010

I know I haven't posted anything in a long time due to....well, to be honest there's really no particular reason why I haven't posted anything, but I guess blogging has been on the bottom of my to-do list lately. I decided to get back into blogging because I think it's better than Facebook and Twitter, at least it helps promote good writing skills. No offense, all of you Facebook addicts. ;-)
Now for an update! There really hasn't been anything too exciting or spectacular going on here in hot, sunny California. I did get a new car and that is pretty exciting (too me anyway).

Time For Another Post!

I've REALLY, really slacked with it comes to blogging regularly, but for some odd reason I've had no desire to "blog" lately. But I thought I'd sit down today and write a quick "update" post. Although there really isn't much to update, I'll just let you know what's been happening the last couple of weeks.

Living in the South {Lame, I know}

I honestly kind of despise these things, they're like forwards to me and I really, reallllly hate forwards. If I saw somebody's blog and they had this list on it, I'd probably just continue to the next one. Am I rude? Maybe. But since my blog is getting a little stale I thought I'd spice it up a bit with some "humor." Southern humor, to be precise. I lived in the south (Arkansas) for 7 years and boy let me tell you, these are actually really true! There are many, many things that I miss about living there but I won't go into detail and bore you to tears, though I will say that the south has a lot of perks.

You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is. You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

You don't push buttons, you mash them.

You measure distance in minutes.

You'll probably have to switch from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day.

'Fix' is a verb. Example: 'I'm fixing to go to the store.'

Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as goin' Wal-martin' or off to 'Wally World.'

A cool snap (below 70 degrees) is good pinto-bean weather.

A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop... It's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example: 'What kinda coke you want?'

Fried catfish is the other white meat.

We don't need no stinking driver's ed... If our mama says we can drive, we can drive.
