Review: Scallop-Tied Booties

Let me begin by saying that I'm head over heels in L-O-V-E with these Scallop-Tied Booties from Anthropologie! The scallop feature, laser cut-outs, and the little bow are all so adorable.

I am a size 8, so I ordered a size 38 and they fit like a glove so I'd say they are true to size. The heel height is perfect at 2.5" - not too high but high enough to lengthen the leg. They felt really comfortable, although I haven't worn them out yet so I can't say for sure.

A close-up of the bow and laser cut-outs. I love little details like this, they always make the boots special and one of a kind. The leather was buttery soft and very good quality. They are a pull-on style but I didn't have any trouble taking them on or off. And the shaft circumference was perfect, not too big or too small. I have chicken legs so a large shaft is always an ongoing problem for me.

It's important to note that the tie is not permanently attached and can slip on and off. That didn't bother me at all though. And the caramel color will go with just about everything. These boots will go with jeans, skirts and dresses so I can wear them almost year round. Here is how they look on...

Overall I am so happy with these boots and I can't wait to wear them out. I think I will be getting lots and lots of wear out of them for years to come.

So what do you think?? Have you had your eye on the lovely Scallop-Tied Booties?

Currently Loving: Max Wanger

I adore the whimsical playfulness of Max Wanger's photos. I've wanted his 'tulum' print from the moment I saw it on Emily Henderson's blog. I'm in love with the soft green and blue colors. And I'd love to put his 'ice cream' print in my kitchen. There are so many great shots but here are some of my favorites...

and great news - he's offering 15% off any purchase thru August 31st with code SPLASH so there's still time to place your order! I finally decided to order his 'tulum' print for our dining area and now I can't wait to get it :)

Stripes & Petals

The colors in this dress always remind me of the end of summer. I think it's the mix of bright colors with some pretty autumn hues. So I thought it would be fitting to wear to church this past Sunday...

Sale is Here Today!

There was another small round of markdowns at Anthropologie today. I'm really trying to not buy anymore summer stuff but when these sales keep coming, I'll admit that it's hard to say no! Here are my picks from today's sale...

The prints on these tunics are so fun and I think they would transition nicely into Fall with a cardigan over them.

Loving the color of this cardigan and that it has a slightly vintage vibe to it.

Another cute striped dress. And the stripe placement seems like it would be very figure flattering too!

I'm thinking about getting this since it's such a great casual everyday 'mom' top. Did you get anything from the sale today???

Polka Dots & Stripes

It's hard to tell from the pic buy my grey jeans have little dots all over them so I thought it would be fun to mix them with stripes.

One Cardi, Three Dresses

I got this cardigan on 2nd cut and I just love it! The lace detail is pretty and the color combination is so unique. I decided to have some fun and style it three different ways! The first one is how I wore it to church on Sunday...

Sale Today!

Another Monday usually means another sale at Anthropologie and today did not disappoint! Here are my picks...

I love striped tees and this one is no different. The stripe placement is fun and unique and I love the flattering buttons in the back.

I have a thing for black and white skirts (already own this one) - they seem to go with everything! This one looks so flattering and would transition nicely into Fall and Winter.

This tee looks cute and comfortable and I love the fun print!

I haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet since I'm too excited for Fall stuff now! I'm thinking about getting this but I need another summer shirt like I need a hole in my head. Did you get any goodies from this week's sale?? Or have you moved onto Fall stuff too?

Swizzle Stripes

Happy Friday everyone!! I just love this tunic - it's so comfy and easy to wear. I loved both colorways but decided to get the black and white one since I can pair it with my colored jeans.

Light Florals

It's supposed to be a bit cooler this week to I took the opportunity to wear this lightweight sweater for the first time. I got it on sale a few weeks back and have been itching to wear it ever since! Plus, I'm taking the kids to a movie today and I always seem to get cold in theaters.

The bird print on this dress is so fun and bright! I love that it can be paired with any bright cardi to change up the look a bit. I wore my t-straps again and I'm surprised to see how many things these cute shoes go with. Here's what I wore to church on Sunday...
