Click HERE for boots under $100.
So many of my favorites are on this page!
My TOMS, The Colten (the one in the middle in the pic), The Trolley, The Bella, and others!
Seriously great boots for under $100.
They also have them categorized by:
style: booties, flat, ankle, lace-up, heeled, wedge, platform, or over the knee.
trend: moto and combat, peep toe, riding, strapped in, studded, and western
occasion: casual, dress, comfort, rain, winter

Does anybody else have “Those boots are made for walking…”
on repeat in their head right now?
Yeah, me either.
HAPPY OCTOBER LADIES!
In honor of October,
you are going to start seeing some fall looks creeping onto the blog!
(In September I talked a lot about items that would work for fall, but you didn’t see many in most of the items, I was just linking to them)
Still, if you need ideas, click HERE for my super comprehensive September review!
Now that we are in October, you are going to actually start seeing the outfits!
I may or may not walk out of the house in them quite yet (because where I live it might be 98 degrees by the afternoon), but I want to get us started really thinking about fall.
PLUS, I realize that some of you live in parts of the country where you are actually already in full swing for dressing for fall.
We envy you.
So, let’s get on with it!
This was my inspiration today.
Minus the glasses and hat.
Although I totally wish I had quirky glasses that made me look smart and sexy.
(sidenote: I was totally that kid in junior high that unfolded a paper clip and put it on my teeth so I could see what I would look like with a retainer. Fyi: it wasn’t a good look.
But I just know I would be cute in glasses.)
I saw this outfit and I thought it was a great formula for fall.
short sleeved and lightweight sweater + cuffed jeans + booties =
That’s my kind of math.
And the black and white stripes?

So, I popped into my closet and got the items I needed.
I like the inspiration sweater so much better, but I worked with what I had.
(I like how the sweater in the inspiration picture is
predominately white with black accents and piping…but mine will do in a
What do you think?
Do you like the outfit?
You’re about to see some more pictures, so now is as good a time as any to talk about my
new pink phone case.
I got the i phone 5 over the weekend. and so I had to get a new case.
I wanted a fun new color and settled on pink!
I didn’t really think about the fact that my phone shows in all of my pictures and black would have been a better choice. OOPS. We’ll see how long the pink phone lasts.
Anyway, here’s my new fall outfit…and my new pink phone.

p.s. LOFT is having a MYSTERY FLASH SALE until 10:00 EST this morning.
I got an e-mail where you had to click and find out what your deal was.
I thought that was just for show and that everybody got the same deal, but apparently not.
My deal was to use the code MYSTERY 75 for $75 off my full price purchase of $150 or more.
I assumed everybody probably got that deal too.
However, I put it on facebook last night and a reader said that her deal was only for $50 off.
(Sorry I didn’t get to you sooner Alison!) 🙁
I wanted to make sure all of you had the MYSTERY75 code!
Now, GO! SHOP!
But just don’t tell them you got the code from me! 😉
Click HERE to shop.
Lots and lots of stuff that I featured last week would apply.
So, click HERE if you want to see my LOFT-A-PALOOZA post again to see everything I tried on and loved!
(Remember, part of it looked like this!)
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sweater. It came home with me.
And if we’re being honest, so did the scarf.
