Outfit: Boot Love (in 90-Degree Heat!)

April 25, 2011

Oh my heaven.
I have been sooooo good about purchases lately, really abiding by my rule of only buying what I need
to rid me of the “I have nothing to wear” syndrome. Have you tried my method??
For me, cross one item off the so-called warbrobe-need list:

During a casual stroll into Banana Republic I stumbled across these beauties, a pair of boots I’ve been searching for for way too long. Perfectly camel brown. Good heel. Right height. Real leather. 

Best part: the only pair was size 9! My size! That NEVER happens. It’s always a 5.5 or 6.
Needless to say I don’t care that it’s nearly 90 degrees in Florida,
this gal is wearing her boots!
Here’s an outfit I wore during last week’s Chick-Fil-A and retail therapy at the mall date with a bff, A.
Also ran a few errands, probably in an attempt to show off the cuteness as much as possible before I look totally absurd in this steamy heat.
You do that, too, right? If you’re feeling cute or loving an item of clothing you’re wearing you try to do more out and about to show it off to everyone to see. Don’t lie. Haha.

Next up for the boots: skirts and cas’ floral dresses with the boots.

And, this makes me very excited for next Fall! Sqeeel.
short-sleeve sweater: h&m (see w/ green cargos)
jeans: f21
boots: banana republic
flower ring: f21
rose leather bracelet: tory burch
brown leather band: etsy shop
watch: michael kors
bag: louis vuitton
polish: essie’s watermelon

    Bekah: it always happens! I have suprisingly large feet for my size! Haha, and Chick-Fil-A is where it's at!

    Sarah: fortunately I was indoors most of the day so it worked out; it's chilly in the mall! Thanks for commenting! xo

  • Erin

    Oh yeah. I'm lovin' this outfit (and those boots really are perfect). I think the show-stoppers here are the way those jeans look on you! Wooooot!

    Thanks gals. Loving this short-sleeve sweater, too. Totally light-weight so good transition piece.

    It might not have been the most comfortable outfit for you, temperature-wise, but that open knit sweater makes the whole look work. They are super cute boots, congrats on having the sale gods smile upon you.

  • Tara @ Haute Lunch

    I'm completely in love with those boots! Can't believe you found them in a 9- that's my size, too, so I know how hard it is to find cute shoes in that size (especially if they go on sale)! I also love those bracelets, and would have also found lots of things to do if I wore that outfit! You look SO fabulous!
