do you remember when braces were cool? or was that just me? there was a point in my life [around 6th grade], all of my friends had braces. and gosh dang it, I wanted a pair. Luckily, I didn’t have to wish for them too long. at my very next dentist appointment, I was told I had a 30% overbite [which is nearly nothing & practically normal] but it was recommended I get braces. after one fancy colored rubber band change, I was over them. and two years later, threw a party the day the came off!
my point is, I occasionally suffer from “want what you can’t have” syndrome. a large shout out to warby parker for making swoon-worthy eyeglasses. and their fall collection launches today! [see the full collection here].
while I do not wish for my 20/20 vision to vanish, I cannot help but love how stylish they make corrective lens. thank goodness for their sunglasses. and having a fiance who is on board with me dressing up his
but let’s pretend for a minute.
although I am sad to see the summer go so quickly, I cannot wait to dive into sweater + boot season.
boots // mixed-media sweater // jeggings // warby parker’s annette petal tortoise.
you can virtually try the glasses on!!
mid late january and I can say I am over my winter shoe collection. the same three boots on repeat.
but as most of the country heard loud & clear the past few days, winter is far from over.
I rarely buy snow boots. it feels like I’m giving into winter, and we can’t have that. but when I do, I couldn’t be happier. story time: when I moved to NYC, I didn’t own a pair of rain boots. [they weren’t a
‘thing’ necessity in Iowa]. so walking to work, I’d have to dodge the puddles. sometimes wandering well into the middle of the road. HUGE PUDDLES! finally I said enough is enough, and I purchased a bright pink pair. guess what I did? jump & walk through every puddle from then on.
that’s kind of what snow boots are for.
don’t attempt to avoid the snow
that’s everywhere, show it who is boss with a great pair of boots. and walk right through it.
[*editor’s note: that could be a life lesson too. just walk right through it].
now let’s find us a pair ..
1 // copper zip-up boots. 2 // red earth snow boots.
3 // leather + faux fur mocha snow boots. 4 // short snow boots.
5 // scrunch boot. 6 // rain boots. that I rock in the snow.
7 // faux fur black boots. 8 // thermoball pull-on bootie.
I had every intention of filming a snow boot style post. and I still do. but when I was ready to film it, there was very little snow on the ground. thankfully the ground is now covered. so look for me in a pair of snow boots
out in the freezing cold next week!
