Boots & Braids

8:42 PM

Guess what? I am so excited to be going home to Kentucky this coming weekend. It’s been a really long time since I was home last, and I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my momma and celebrating one of my closest friend’s wedding! Can't wait to see you Bitto!!

One accessory I never travel without is a hat. It may seem silly, but I tend to overpack and I almost always never want to wear anything I packed (story of my life). So I always make sure to have a hat with me, as I find them to be incredibly chic and the perfect accessory to spruce up any outfit I select.

I found this gray hat at a recent trip to Old Navy and I must say it was a STEAL! For those of you that are easing in to the Fall hat trend, or just not quite sure how you will look in a hat/how to style it, I highly recommend taking this hat for a test run. It was less than $15 which is perfect if you are unsure, but also perfect if you love hats as much as I do!

You know who else has great, wallet friendly hats?! Forever 21…I always think Forever 21 has the best deals for trendy items (see last post about F21 here).

Now can we all take a second to praise these boots? I’ve been wanting grey boots for a couple years now…probably since I saw Olivia Palermo in her Stuart Weitzman boots and since I think she is a goddess, I knew I needed a pair in my closet. Bad news though, Joe would kill me if I spent that kind of money on a pair of boots while we save for our wedding!

So I found an identical pair, at a fraction of the cost - kudos to Steve Madden for always coming through on a great pair of shoes. I think my closet could keep Steve Madden in business because practically every pair of shoes I own are SM :)

So what are you all up to on this Sunday night? The weather here was GORGEOUS today, so Joe and I (and my future in-laws…I LOVE saying that!) went out and about here in Oak Park today and enjoyed the sunshine before they headed back for Michigan. 

T-Minus two and a half weeks until Thanksgiving! Anyone else looking forward to turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, apple pie, pumpkin pie, any pie, more pie and left over pie?!!!!

I seriously love pie.
