SHOP MY LOOK: Sweater | Jeans (similar) | Booties


I am head over heels for these velvet booties! Not sure if you noticed but there’s a lot of velvet going on this fall not only in shoes but in bomber jackets, t-shirts and leggings too. I love how velvet goes with denim. (But what doesn’t- I know, I know…)

We took these pictures in Kansas City the weekend before last. We flew in for the night because my son’s JROTC Raider team was competing in Leavenworth. It was great to watch the boys compete against 15 other teams (and come in second place!)

Although we didn’t know it, while we were at the meet we all were attacked by the Kansas Oak mite! I had bites all over my face and neck and couldn’t figure out what it was from. Found out later that all of the kids had the same thing and indeed there is actually a mite situation going on there. {Weird}  

Anyway, more importantly, I shopped velvet booties for you here so you can get a pair too:

Bordeaux Boots

  These are the over the knee bordeaux boots I bought at the Nordstrom #nsale way back in July! They’ve just been waiting to make a break out of my closet and into the daylight. I love the color! These boots do come in black and gray, but truth be told most of my boots…

Weekend Apple Picking

This is the time of the year for weekend apple picking! KN and I thought it was the perfect thing to do on a beautiful fall day. Neither of us had been apple picking before so we really didn’t know how it would work. When you arrive and before they let you into the orchard,…
