How Much Longer Do I Have to Wait?

I hit the Nordstrom yearly Anniversary Pre-Sale event a couple of weeks ago and now I can’t stop thinking about the shoes I purchased! My mom and I may have gone a little crazy, but we’re worth it, right? With my birthday being in the fall, I generally ask for things well in advance, which kind of ruins the surprise, but at the same time I have to wait to get them. Trust me when I say this, but the waiting overshadows the lack of surprise!

I found two amazing pair of boots. I already have a closet full of boots, but they all serve a completely different purpose! A gray pair of Steve Madden boots await me in a rugged, dove gray leather. They have a small wedged heel, but the thing that makes these boots so unique is the wrapped leather that covers the sole. A small functioning zipper runs up the back of the boot; stopping just slightly above the ankle. These will look so cute with skinny jeans, black leggings and comfy sweaters. I might even try them with dresses. How much longer until November?

The second pair of is so out of character for me. They are a black over the knee leather boot by Sam Edelman, of the now defunct Sam & Libby. These boots have great details from an inside zipper to small buckles at the knee. At first I was leery of the over the knee boot. Was it too Pretty Woman? All fears diminished as soon as I put them on! I felt more Carrie Underwood than Vivian Ward. Even women working the floor that day told me “Those boots look hot on you!”. If that’s the case, how could I not I get them! I plan on wearing them with all the same things as the Steve Maddens above. One thing to avoid, mini skirts!

The last pair I’ll mention are the adorable gray, felt flats from Jessica Simpson. So cute that they are on back order! I plan to wear them with everything: dresses, jeans (boyfriend, skinny and possibly boot cut), skirts with tights and dress pants. I must say, there was a time where I shunned flats, and still have a hard time wearing them, but with all the mile high heels I sport on a daily basis these flats will be a nice reprieve.

These are just a few things I’m looking forward to for fall. I love the rich, autumnal tones, light weight wools, blankets of cashmere and the smell of wood burning stoves in the air. What parts of fall are you look forward to?
