That time we went to the beach on September 27th.

Next stop: Playground

Wow. We had a spectacular day here in Rhode Island and tomorrow is shaping up to be just as nice! I saw 85 glorious degrees on my car's thermometer and I even had to bring the shorts and flip flops out of retirement to celebrate!

And here's the final image:

Little Red Riding Boots: Favorite Riding Boots for Fall

One of my favorite cold weather staples is footwear of the boot variety. Specifically, I'm feeling Riding boots.

I have the most wonderful pair of boots from Etienne Aigner that I have faithfully worn into the ground. Like to the point where I either need to track down my very own cobbler or pull the trigger and get a new pair.

Here are some that are on my list:

iPhone Wallpaper Freebies to make you smile

Who doesn't need a little motivation in their day? How about every time you unlock your phone (which is at least 100x/day with me!)? I've been on a big iPhone Wallpaper kick lately on Pinterest (maybe you've seen it...) and love to download a few and change them out depending on my mood/type of inspiration I'm seeking. 

Today, whilst waiting at the DMV to transfer my out of state plates, I made a few for you. I'm such a Giver. Please take them. Save them to your phone (super easy to do if you're on your phone, just double tap or hold down for a second, or some combination of that until you see a 'Save Image' option). Or, if you like them, save them for later by pinning them. Also easy! Just hover over the image. 

So there you go. I hope you enjoy. I'll be posting some more soon!

Top Bags for Fall

I'm not ready to start actively sporting my favorite Fall looks. It's been in the high 80's here for God's sake. But, I'm always up for a chat and some window shopping for my favorite Fall products. I mean, no other season gets me as excited for fashion like FALL!

What I really love about these bags are the colors (rich plums, pretty red, cool greens, leopards) and the shapes. Curious to see them all? Click on the link below to take a look at my shopping cart on Mavatar.

(By the way, did I mention that Mavatar is a really cool way to shop? I met them on #StyleChat and was sold when they were able to offer shopping cart monitoring to help me find the best deal! Learn more here.)
