I love boots. Once fall is upon us, it is really all that I wear. While my favorite is most often moto boots, I’m working on expanding my assortment a bit. Here are a few of my faves from this season:

The Newbury in Navy I love this classic boot in a fresh new color.

Nordstrom is launching a new service, stylists just a text away! I took it for a test drive this weekend and was pleasantly surprised at the immediate response to my question:

It’s becoming that time of the year when I’m sick of the dark and the cold, and ready for a little sunshine in my life. And while the sun may be no where to be found for the near future here in Seattle, I’m thinking a little color could lift these dreary winter spirits.

I’m madly in love with the new Fall campaign from Attilio Giusti Leombruni. Ever since I spotted these gorgeous two tone mirrored booties, I’ve been dreaming of a Euro styled fall wardrobe.
I have two pairs of their famous ballet flats, which are possibly the most comfortable shoes in existence, and I’m really looking forward to investing in these pretties for fall. I think Stella Tennant just might be my new muse. I’m counting down until the weather starts to cool. I’m ready for fall!

Spotted this amazing DIY on HonestlyWTF today – Studded Sneakers! So cute and tough.
Great summer shoes! I’ve always been such a fan of Vans, and this is a sweet update.

You’ll need:
a pair of sneakers
150 – 200 brass cone spikes
E6000 adhesive
a disposable container or popsicle stick
a toothpick

Start by squeezing a small amount of E6000 into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Dispensing a small amount at a time prevents the glue from drying too quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a small dollop of glue onto the back of a spike.

Press the spike into the sneaker, holding it in place for a few seconds.

Continue adding spikes along the shoe’s baseline and working upwards in horizontal lines.

Arrange the spikes, without glue, into awkward spaces before attaching them.
Glue spikes onto the heel cap, again working horizontally.

Allow the shoes to dry overnight before wearing them!

It’s beautiful outside here in Seattle! I have the feeling this is going to be a historically warm summer for us. I’m not one for real heat, but for now I’ll enjoy the crisp warm days as we transition from spring with outdoor lounging, grilling and bare legs earlier in the season than I’ve ever dared.

Here are a few of my favorites from around the web, on this sunny slothful Sunday.

Floral Pants are adorable!
The beauty of basic black.
San Francisco is our next destination. What are your favorite restaurants?
Tory Burch Summer.
I’ve had this Ikea piece in my closet forever and I love this makeover.
Beautiful rose gold oxfords. Want.
A colorful engagement shoot.
Wildfox Kids, a look book even grown-ups could use for inspiration.

So it snowed today. Really, actually snowed and stuck. So of course, I did not leave the house.
But my dear friend Andy took this lovely pic of the neighborhood:

It still surprises me when it sticks. I’m a bit of a baby about the cold. So I stayed in and online.
And here’s what I found.

These leopard shoes.
Be my valentine.
If I did it all over again, I’d have this cake.
Lovely illustrations.
A reusable carrier we’d really reuse.
Beautiful thoughts on marriage.
Some spring shoes for him.
Blue walls.
Fab stripey bags and great outfits as well.
How I will store wine.
A sweet and funny engagement shoot.

Hope you had a lovely weekend!
