Trend Tuesday: Boots

Trend Tuesday - Boots

 

YESSS it’s boot season!!!!

I don’t know about you, but this summer I realized how much I didn’t like wearing flats. They’re just so uncomfortable, you know? WELLL girls, it’s officially fall and boot season is among us! That means leggings, cardigans, scarves, and a pair of awesome boots to hide those pasty Seattle legs! (or maybe that’s just me?)

I’ve created a collage of my 6 must-haves for this fall and winter. Some are tried and true, others are on my wish list!

1. Sabbina Boot in Cognac, $39.95, justfab.com

This is my most recent boot purchase for this fall! You really can’t beat the price, and I’ve already gotten so many compliments on these over-the-knee beauties! My fave color is cognac, but this boot comes in 2 other awesome colors as well.

2. DV by Dolce Vita Carlin, $42, 6pm.com

Oh, I must have these. Have you checked out 6pm.com yet? It’s Zappo’s outlet store! I am obsessed! These boots will definitely have you looking hippie chic and right on trend for this fall.

3. Sara Boot, $39.95, shoedazzle.com

These slouchy boots are perfect for a more casual, cool look. I am also loving this creamy color, it’s not something you see every day. Definitely cute with a pair of skinny jeans and an infinity scarf.

4. Enzo Angiolini Deanja Riding Boot, $103.99, amazon.com

This boot is a staple and a classic. Just like the LBD, you need a pair of sleek black boots that will never go out of style! Perfect for the workplace or a night out.

5. Bailey Bow Tall Ugg Boot, $250, uggaustralia.com

Having one of those days where you just can’t put it all together? Not to worry! No need to step out of the yoga pants for these boots. Pair these with a comfy oversized tee, cardi, or sweater. Comfort & style!

6. Polka Dot Rainboots, $49.95, amazon.com

Don’t let a rainy day rain on your parade! Step out into the mist in these oh-so-cute rain boots! I personally had these boots for the first couple years of living in Seattle. I received so many compliments, as they are way cuter than your standard boring rain boots. Go splash in a puddle!

So there you have it folks! 6 amazing boots on a budget! (With the exception of the Uggs, but you know… they’re Uggs!) I personally don’t like spending a fortune on boots because they usually get a few scuffs the first day I wear them, and I would cry if they were expensive. Thankfully, there are plenty of options to stay stylish without breaking the bank.

Happy fall,  y’all!

Xo,

Trend Tuesday_ PumpkinsThe holiday season is coming into full swing and we are gearing up for Halloween here at The Petite Package! One of my favorite things to do in honor of Halloween and the fall season is sitting pumpkins out on my front porch. There are so many different things you can do with pumpkins these days. I have compiled a DIY Pumpkin list full of super fun and easy ways to personalize pumpkins!

01. Black Cat O’Lanterns
I am a huge cat lover! What cuter way to share your love for cats and Halloween than with this black cat o’latern?! Carve out the eyes, cut some pointy ears out of cardstock, get your some black spray paint, and voila! Seems simple enough! Sunset

02. Decoupage Photo Pumpkin
This is a pumpkin that you can make SUPER personal! Allie is going to be making this one with pictures of her adorable little toddler, Andee Beth. All you need is a pumpkin, mod podge, a paintbrush, and some of your favorite photos.

07. Glittered Pumpkin Placecards
At The Petite Package, we specialize in wedding products. So, adding this one to list was a no brainer for me! What is so great about these pumpkins, are that you can do a gold glitter one if you want. You don’t even have to use these for a wedding! You could totally use them for that last minute Halloween party you are planning!
Formal Fringe

08. Modern Halloween Pumpkins
These pumpkins are to DIE for! To make these babies, all you need is tape, black paint, and a paintbrush. I would add a cute bow on the stem of mine.

9 Creative Uses for Mason Jars

Trend Tuesday_ Mason JarsHey guys! It’s Trend Tuesday and today we are featuring my FAVORITE thing ever: The Mason Jar!

I don’t know when mason jars got so big, but it seems like nowadays they are everywhere you look: at the grocery store, craft stores (Joann’s & Michael’s), on wedding blogs, Pinterest, and all over people’s homes.

I personally love using mason jars for storing bulk food such as chia seeds, granola, and spices. I also use them in my office for holding pens, tiny spools of twine, and flowers.

Here are 9 fun uses for mason jars to try out!
