Trend Tuesday: Blush Pink

TT - Blush

There is so much pretty going on here I almost can’t stand it.

Blush Pink is a very common color selection in weddings, and for good reason. It is beautiful, romantic, feminine, but not too pink. It pairs beautifully with gold, silver, white and gray.

I personally had a blush pink themed wedding. #3 on the collage is my actual wedding bouquet! I love, love, loved my bouquet! Not only is it beautiful, it will last forever because it is made from silk petals. It is on display in my living room for me to admire until eternity.

I hope you enjoy this curation of wonderful blush items. I know it makes me want to get married all over again!

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,

Monica
