Falling for Fall...

It happens every year! the beach days start to dwindle, the stores start stocking Halloween decorations, and we are a week away from school starting, sports starting, etc. It's a grind that I know and love, and I am feeling ready for it.

 I was sitting in our home-library yesterday, and just before I flushed (hee hee), I spotted this page in InStyle Magazine:

ALERT! Boot season is here people!!! Normally I would be bugged by this page because in past years, I have been seriously unprepared for boot season. See, I am someone who usually buys things at the end of the season on sale. That way, I get a sweet deal, and I can use them the following year. Boots are tricky though, because the last thing I want to do on the brink of Summer is buy tall boots. It's just too hot and beachy during the Spring boot sales to even consider trying them on. So this year, I hit up the pre-fall sales and got me some boots that are definitely made for walkin'!

I definitely don't consider myself a fashionista, but I'm not totally embarrassing to be around either. I wanted to find a perfect pair of "everyday" flat boots that were comfortable and versatile as well as stylish. That magazine page above said that 37% of InStyle readers are going to buy "riding" style boots and I am definitely on board :)
(click on boot pic to zoom, I think they're super cute)
The ones I got are from Cathy Jean and they were 50% off. They are a taupe colored soft leather and they are super comfortable. I can't wait for the temp to drop a bit so I can rock these boots!!!
September, watch out! Here I come :)
