my favorite fall boots

Before we go any further, I can already hear you thinking “Why the heck is this girl wearing boots in the middle of July?!” Probably because I’m insane. Or because I’m smitten with this pair of suede boots that I snatched from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and wanted to share them with y’all. Both? Probably.

Rest assured, this outfit stayed on for about 10 minutes before it was kicked to the back of the closet to await cooler temperatures. But what a fab, easy, cool one it is, in my opinion. And every piece on sale, too!

I’ve already harped on my love for these shoes enough already, apparently to such an extent that my sister had to get a pair too! They’re one of the very few items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that’s still in stock in every size. Case in point – their comfort, incredible quality, gorgeous, unique color make them too good to pass up!

But let’s move on to the other parts of this outfit, that are a lot more practical (and wearable) for the hot summer we’re currently in! This drape front blouse is an amazing buy at $25. The unique detailing makes it seem far more expensive than it actually is, which is never a bad thing. (Side note – it’s certainly not a belly shirt. Wearing my tote over the shoulder pulled the top back, and I didn’t realize until after photos were taken! Monkey covering eye emoji.)

I am also a big, big fan of these new Paige skinny jeans I was able to get for $100 off, and the perfect back to school tote that’s under $50! Both are pieces you won’t have to wait to wear. Kudos to that, right?

I hope everyone is off to a lovely start of the week! After a crazy past two, I’m gradually getting back into a rhythm and excited to be prepping for my family vacation happening next week. Any guesses where we’re headed? (Hint – it’s the same every summer!)

Love from Texas,

    These boots were the first thing to catch my eye when I was shopping early access last week! They are such a great neutral color alternative to brown, I can’t wait to break them out come fall! And SEASIDE! Amiright? :D

    This outfit is so adorable Kate! For size reference, what size did you by for the blouse? It drapes so nicely, I was wondering if I’d have to size down.

    I am looking at punching these boots. Is the color you have in this post…nightfall or natural? you call them gray but they don’t come in gray. I can’t tell if the natural color is more taupe- like or very light.
