New boots and camera batteries

Also, meet Justine:

Sometimes, as every blogger can agree with me, pictures just don't turn out the way you want them to. In this case (the case being last Wednesday), it was my camera. I purposely wore this outfit on a day that I knew I would have time and a friend to help me take photos, but my camera (or rather, camera batteries) had other plans in mind. My friend, Justine, and I were only able to snap a few photos before it decided to die, but at least we got any at all. I really just wanted to share my new boots from Modcloth as they're my pride and joy. They're pretty much the perfect boots. Be honest, you know you want to steal them. You can admit it. ...who am I talking to? It's late, I need sleep. I finally realized that if I scheduled a post the night before, I could get a post up on my busy Tuesdays. I'm smart like that.

I really should make this short and go to bed. Before I do, though, make sure to visit Justine's blog, The Cardinal of Class!

Dress: T.J. Maxx

  3. Adorable! I'm so excited for fall and you have great fall style! Justine is adorable and I am following her now!
    Much love,

  4. Super cute boots! Hurray for fall and lack of sleep~


    1. In response to your comment! I think visuals is... fun. in theory. Haha, the class itself is kind of wonky and I'm not confident enough in my creative abilities to do visual merchandising as a career. It might be fun to do temporarily though!

      and ummm. I want to open my own shoe store someday. That's why I majored in fashion merch. Now, I'm not sure what I want to do, especially when I get out of college. There's so many options, haha. I just don't know! :( What about you???

  5. Love the purple socks (or leg warmers, not sure) peeking out the boot too! All the details are lovely. Even if the camera died, at least we got to see the fun outfit.

  6. Those boots are definitely something to feel great about!

  7. Um...yes, actually, I'd just like to steal this entire outfit from you, boots and all :)

  10. These boots are BEAUTIFUL and they look stunning with your dress. It's such a nice and simple combination of dressy and every day. Your friend is super cute and I love her style too!

    And yeah, I've had a million outfit shots turn out poorly. It's the worst and makes me question myself, haha

  11. I love that emerald green cardigan! It looks so lovely with your dress! The boots are great especially with those colorful socks. And your friend is cute I love the hair and her dress.


  12. I love your new boots! And your kelly green sweater is pretty awesome, too! And I love your friend Justine's outfit. Those two tone loafers are amazing. :)

  13. Love you new boots and the green cardigan! The color is so uniqueeee :D
