Boots | Fashion + Utility

We just got a big storm here in Denver, so Winter is certainly in full swing. That is, if you live in a place with actual seasons - not so much Winter where I grew up in Houston, TX. I'm used to wearing booties and the occasional flat - but what about when there's a big snow storm and I still want to look fashionable without carrying an extra pair of shoes around with me?

I thought I'd round up some boots that look good but are also practical for inclement weather.  When it snows here in Denver, I'd rather not fall on my arse in the office parking lot...

All of these boots are pretty cute, but also have some good tread to keep you stable on the snow and ice.  To start, Sorels are always a good idea.  Funny story - my husband's cousin and I both bought this first boot unbeknownst to each other.  So, that must mean it's cute!

So, here are a few of my favorite accouterments for your furry friends, including the above collars. Click on the images for links!

And then, I know this isn't an accessory but there are these toys from Fluff & Tuff that are pretty indestructible.  No...seriously.  My big dog normally tears through those other 'indestructible' toys in 20 minutes, but these really do last!



Trending NOW | Kimono Jackets

This summer, kimonos were everywhere!  I think this is a fun trend that can easily be part of your transition wardrobe into fall.  I've included a few celebrity styles that show these kimono jackets being paired with jeans and boots. I love these kimonos because they are super comfortable and are an easy way for any body type to participate in a new trend. Also, they've helped me to introduce more color into my wardrobe, which usually consists of a lot of black, white and grey.

And bonus, a lot of these style are on sale right now!  So, check 'em out...click the photo for the link!

Jewelry Roundup | JULY 2015

I've always been known for my unique jewelry finds, so I decided to start this "Jewelry Roundup" as a monthly series. A unique necklace is a great way to dress up a t-shirt and jeans. Not to mention, an interesting piece is always a great conversation starter. There are so many independent designer out there making great stuff. I hope to dedicate this series to their work, while including multiple price points.  That way, you can find unique pieces suitable for any budget!

First, of course, I need to start with this antler necklace.  And at $26, it's a great deal!

I own this buffalo skull ring in off-white, and I always get amazing comments on it. Plus, this black version is on sale!

I've always loved Erica Weiner's designs.  This handcuff necklace was the first piece I bought of hers - thus, starting my obsession.  This is such a fun piece, with a little bit of edge!

Last, but certainly not least, is a ring I've been drooling over for the past year.  This dalmatian jasper ring by Bly Design is stunning and just big enough!

Enjoy!!  More jewelry finds to come!
