back in the saddle

Sorry for the brief absence. I had such great aspirations for blogging over my "staycation," but it was nice to have zero deadlines and schedules for a week, so the blogging took a bit of a hiatus, too.

This editorial by Zanita Whittington starring Bambi Northwood inspired me to bust out my "boot bling" again. Need to make a mental note to hunt for more when I'm in New Mexico for the holidays... Speaking of the holidays, I'm already in full "holiday mode." The Nutcracker channel on Pandora has been playing nonstop and I can't help but smile every time I see Christmas lights. We even did all of our decorating this weekend. Yup, we're fast becoming those people.

I am so in love with your boot bling- it really makes the outfit...and I totally know what you mean about no deadlines!

Eli said...

hope you had a great holiday, it feels great to disconnect for a little. I enjoyed it so much myself!

I was so close to getting a tree with my family today, kind of bummed I didn't because I'm going back to my home tomorrow and wont get to decorate it with them. I'll put up my own soon :) so excited for the christmas spirit!!

Love the boot bling, I didn't realize it was disconnected from the boot until you mentioned it! Great idea :)

Sometimes you really need a break from the demands of the digital life. And it really can be overwhelming at times.

Glad you got to enjoy some time off getting ready for the holidays.
I've yet to do a thing!

The colors in these photos are amazing. It's snowing in Scotland so seeing the fall colors of DC is a little surreal for me since I would normally be there if it weren't for studying abroad haha

Madeline said...

love this! and the autumn leaves are stunning!

La Historiadora de Moda said...

I love the boots and their bling! A week without any deadlines sounds lovely.

I adore the "boot bling"--I recently started wearing some old, cheap charm bracelets around my boots and love the sound they make when I walk. Great cape, too!

theowlsarenotwhattheyseem said...

love the boot bling! i try to do that with some thrifted rhinestone necklaces sometimes, but i like that yours looks like it is actually intended to be worn on the boots. great jacket too- it has so much volume! ~joelle

I wish I could wear boots like that, but my legs just go "no way, not happening" and I walk bow legged *sigh*.

That is still a gorgeous bag, it's just perfect.

seriously loving this outfit and these photos. That boot bling is fantastic, and I'm a huge fan of how those Saddleback Leather bags seem to go with everything.

Now.....how about hosting a giveaway so I can get one w/out the pricepoint? heh heh heh.

But seriously. comeon.
