High Tops For Fall

Yesterday, I noticed that the flower petals from our Crepe Myrtle trees were beginning to gently fall off.  That, coupled with the beautiful breeze we experienced, made it feel like fall is truly on the horizon.  That’s not to say that we couldn’t have a crazy temperature spike again for a couple of weeks before the temperature actually begins to decrease for good, but it gives me hope.  I have always said that I could happily live somewhere without a summer.  Unless I am laying in a pool or at the beach, heat is not my friend.  In fact, the main thing I miss about L.A. (besides my friends) is the dry climate and the cool nights.  I’m that annoying friend who is wishing for fall within the first week of summer.

The slight change in temperature were are having here in Raleigh is making me so excited fall clothing.  While the hot clothing items for the upcoming season are layering pieces such as dusters, kimonos and cardigans, one of the main shoe trends seems to lean more towards athleisure and cool comfort.  More specifically, high tops are huge for fall.  If you have followed us for awhile, you may have noticed that they have been a favorite of mine for years.  It’s funny because when I wear my high top sneaks, I always have women comment, “I love those shoes but I could never pull off high tops” or “Those are so cool but I’m too old to wear them.”  Listen, my mom is in her late-sixties and she looks so ridiculously cool (and adorable) when she wears her studded high tops.  Forget the traditional rules and just wear what you are drawn to despite that little voice in your head.  I am no spring chicken but I have zero plans of giving up my high tops.  At the very least, give them a try!  A great option this fall is the high top sneaker bootie.  It offers a bit of a more conservative look versus Converse or Vans.  I have linked some great options below.

I am so psyched that there are so many amazing options out right now so I wanted to share my favorite picks with you all!  I have included a variety of price points ranging from affordable kicks to more high-end ones.

Transition Booties Under $100

Friday is here!  This has been such a bizarre week.  I have been one day ahead the entire time.  I keep talking to David about our schedules and he stares at me with a smirk because I have yet to have the days right this week.  Wednesday felt like Thursday and yesterday was Friday in my head.  It’s interesting because several other people have said the same thing.  Maybe the full moon earlier this week made everything feel cattywampus?  Well, despite whatever was in the air, we made it to Friday.  (It IS Friday, right?)

With June and July a distant memory and August cruising by at an alarming rate, we thought it was the perfect time to talk transition booties.  What do we mean by transition booties?  We are talking about low boots that can be worn now during the warmer weather but also all throughout fall and winter as well.  They look adorable paired with cutoff denim shorts or a floral dress but as soon as temps drop, they can be styled with skinny jeans and a cozy sweater.  They are one of the items we would highly recommend purchasing in the near future.

There are a ton of amazing options but we decided to select our favorites under $100.  We would love to know which ones are your faves so please share in the comments!

Nordstrom Sale- Shoe Picks

It’s Friday!  It’s Friday!

Today is the day when the Nordstrom sale opens up to the public. Prior to today, only cardholders were able to shop the sale items but as of today, anyone can shop until they drop!

We have tried to keep our Nordstrom sale content on here and on social media to a minimum. As avid readers of several blogs, we understand that ONLY hearing about the sale can become irritating. We decided to do a few posts on the sale but not post obsessively about the event.

Because there are some amazing opportunities to grab some great fall items, we did want to share some sale content with you all…and we hope you don’t mind.  One of the key items that we wanted to talk about was shoes. If you have followed us for awhile, you may have picked up o the fact that the two of us each have a slight shoe obsession.  Because of this love of shoes, we just want to share our absolute favorite picks from the Nordics sale with you all!

As always, simply click on the individual images below to view details on each pair and please let us know which ones are your favorites!

xoxo
