I know what you’re thinking. “Nope… so not time for boots yet.” And it’s true, but these Derby riding boots have been sitting in my closet for a month now just begging to be worn. So when temps finally cooled in Dallas yesterday, I took it as a sign and gave in. (Cause I felt bad for them, ya know?) I guarantee you I was the only person in D town to sport these, but it was so fun to pull these out and got me so excited for the season ahead!

And I’ve noticed something funny about myself… I’ve been loving neutral pallets lately! If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that’s a definite mix up from my more-color-the-more-fun preference. It’s refreshing to switch things up, though, and I think chilly fall days lend to warm, muted tones. That’s why this new tote is going to be my new favorite thing this fall! It’s reversible from this warm beige color to a beautiful blush and a great buy at $50.

Also… just so I can get this on my calendar… what is the official “they’re finally allowed” date for riding boots? This chic needs ta know.

Love from Texas,

Kate

  2. I have noticed in your recent posts a different aesthetic in the pictures. Maybe it’s the neutral color palettes, or different editing but I just wanted to say I’m loving it! Not that I didn’t enjoy your summery bright and happy posts as well, but these fall inspired pictures really have me swooning!

    I just received mine in the mail today! I’m excited! Problem is it’s a little tall for me and the sizing. I’m 5’2. I’m hoping once I exchange it the height will help. Do/did you have a height issue with it?
