Fall is officially upon us and I am LOVING it. Scarves, boots, sweaters, snuggling up with a good book, and sleeping with the windows open (which the hub weirdly doesn’t get??)… these are a few of my favorite things. As with years past (here & here), my boot obsession continues.

This time, it got a little out of control. Like, at one point, Brett asked what was wrong with me. Um.. nothing? I just really like boots. The problem this year though, was that I got this exact pair of boots in my mind, and nothing else would suffice. Which wouldn’t have been a problem, except that they are not this year’s style and I couldn’t find them in my size anywhere!!

Well, ok, I did find them here, but frankly, I think we all know by now that I’m cheap, and $200 was more than I was willing to spend on them. Especially when other sites had them for less than half that cost, just not in size 7. The trials of life.

So I went on a multi-month hunt for THE boots. And finally, just when I had almost given up hope, I found this pair on Ebay. Hip hip, hooray, and sold. And now they are mine, and I wear them whenever I possibly can.


I mean, the color, the straps, the heel height, the spikes (the spikes!!)… it’s all just perfection. AND, because I love my new ankle boots so much, Mini-me got a pair of her own to match (via Old Navy in case you’re wondering)! Ha. Love that little beast.



Hope you’re having a great fall weather week too!

    I love how you styled the ankle boots- my style enemy :) I can’t wait to try an outfit like this!

      Thanks Crista! I know they can be a tough look to pull off, but I can’t help but love them anyway. :)
