Affordable fall boots, a round up!

Fall boots! One of the best parts of the season is boots! But finding affordable fall boots seems like an endless, fruitless task. Luckily, I’m adept at finding deals, thrifting, hanting Polyvore, and couponing my way to affordable fall boots heaven.

Most of these are by Qupid via Amazon, and I have to admit, I never knew Qupid boots could be a.) so stylish and b.) so well made.

Fashion || The start of something

Today I’m wearing this fabulous new cape coat over one of my favorite, very old dresses. I bought this dress at least four years ago, and because of the colors and how comfy it is, I must wear it a dozen times a year, and I love that. It’s definitely a staple dress, and one that I never get tired of.

I’ve been eager to find myself a good cape coat for ages, and I love this lightweight one. Cape coats of all kinds are definitely a mild-weather outerwear option, because obviously, your arms get no protection from the cold. But it’s such a fun piece to style for the warmer fall days because you get to play around with colors and patterns.

Also wearing the Kendall Jenner lipstick I cannot get enough of. It matched perfectly!

(As an aside: this is my 400th blog post. Crazy!)

For the love of boots…

It’s THAT time of year again…boots season!! Okay, so I don’t think this is unusual for we fashion blogger types, but I am wholeheartedly obsessed with boots/booties and I usually go absolutely insane this time of year researching boots, pricing boots, evaluating my collection of boots, trying to make myself stay frugal by not buying boots, and just generally spending 65% of my time (about) thinking about boots.

Cause I like boots.

This year, my boot needs are slim because my boot buying in past years has been wise. That’s a good thing—because I don’t have much to buy, and a bad thing—because I want to buy boots.

So in an effort to remain organized and sort of stop myself from going too crazy, I’ve made a collage of the kinds of boots I tend to gravitate toward and I’ve thought of what I want to wear them with.Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 4.10.39 PM

I’ve found booties that will work well predominantly with skirts and dresses, since that’s most of what I wear in fall. I’m not a jeans girl, and I think these will also work well with those sleek stretchy pants I wear so much. You’ll also find some flats choices, because my flats collection is sorely lacking.

Shoe Lust: The Privileged Dazed Bootie

Help me decide! I found these shoes on the DSW website and completely fell in love:

I adored the straps and the pointed toe, and especially that clear lucite heel. But then I saw that they come in another color:

And because of my unhealthy addiction to floral (even abstract floral) I had a moment of indecision and I don’t know which one I love better. These babies are on sale so I have to snap them up quick!

Black or multi? This is an important decision.

My Christmas Lit & Fashion Haul

As you can probably expect, I got plenty of clothes, shoes, jewelry, and books for Christmas. Not too shabby:

I love the print on this skater skirt, and the slight steampunk vibe of the statement necklace.

Gilmore Girls on DVD, and some great books I’ve been salivating for: The Lowland, The Valkyries, The Alchemist, Neverwhere, Bellman & Black, and The Moonstone. January will be a month filled with great reads, so stay tuned!
