Calling All 6's

I've been looking for the perfect riding boot for ages. 

Last week I did find the best pair of boots ever on Ebay. These were change your life, make your shoe dreams come true boots. So I did what any good shopper would do...I bid on them. And won. The excitement, the joy....I couldn't believe my good fortune. Until they arrived. While even more perfect in person they were sadly too small. I tried to make them work but I really do need my toes. 


 They are the real deal vintage Frye boots. 
Perfectly broken in. 


The boots say size 7 but are really more like a size 6 or 6 1/2.
10 1/2 inches from toe to heel.


So, so good!!
Interested? 
$75 plus $15 shipping

Right now I would wear them with a white dress: here


Army green oversized jacket + lace dress + riding boots. Perfection

As you move into fall you could add an army jacket: here & here and they are on sale!!

I Need Some Color

Thankfully the sun came out yesterday, 

glassware

And with it my better attitude.

Rainy, gray skies makes me a grumpy girl.
So I gathered some bright, colorful images to perk me up.

A More Glamorous Life

While reading blogs and looking at Instagram do you ever think "Their life is way more glamorous than mine!!"

They look glamorous driving boats...

And the parties look effortless and entertaining. 
But you know what I've decided?
People don't have a better life, they just have a better camera.
Guess what I need? Yep, a better camera.
 I am considering three cameras I recently saw in The Wall Street Journal. Check them out and let me know what you think: SonySony and Nikon
Thoughts, suggestions?

Little White Dress


WHITE_5

Saw this dress on Grace of Stripes and Sequins and knew I had to have it. White gauze with tassels...perfect! Expensive? Nope!




Women's Crinkle-Gauze Drop-Waist Dresses



I was going to get a picture of myself in the dress but it just didn't happen..yet!
But I like the dress so much I ordered another one (when they had a 30% off sale) and I am going to dye it black!!!
Won't that be so cute in the fall with boots and a jean jacket? Hey, it could work! I've dyed clothes before. I'll take notes and pictures and let you know how it goes...wish me luck!

Have a great weekend!
