When one of my favorite companies reached out to me to help spread the word about their Black Friday sale coming up...it was a no brainer. If you'll remember last spring my lovely ivory clogs I've gotten no end of compliments on, this is the same company! But this time...they've got boots.
Sandgren's Berkeley Captoe boot (HERE in olive like mine!) is a unique boot that is steadfast in quality and structure, which sticks to the standard Sandgrens upholds. I love the lace up, the vibrant and neutral color options, and the sturdy but fashionable wooden heel. I fell in love with these babies as soon as I saw them on their site, but I fell hard when I opened them in person.
See what I mean?
Lucky for us (I've gotta order these in Dexter Tan, one color just wont' suffice!), Sandgrens is planning to begin their Black Friday promos a little bit early..so we can beat the mad dash! I'll be posting again on my page once their sale is live so you'll be the first to know!
If the Berkeley Captoe isn't your cup of tea (get the hell off my blog) JUST KIDDING, they've got tons of other styles! Their full site can be found HERE.
Have you been favoring the boots-with-dresses vibes that I have this fall? These babes also pair great with denim and black skinnies, and I know they'll get me through the cool months no problem!
Happy Sunday y'all, and have a merryyyyy Black Friday week (only one week away!)
I got to go to the pumpkin patch with the fam bam this year! Genuinely nothing makes me happier than making new memories with my people.
We were blessed with the prettiest fall day! We didn't even need jackets, the sun kept us nice and warm but the wind kept us cool enough to be comfortable.
I had to take advantage of the pretty scenery and do a pretty braid! I teased the crown a little bit and twisted a few side pieces to the back of my head and then did a pull through braid.
My denim overall dress is from the Target girl's section...don't mind me snatching style secrets from toddlers. My burgundy sweater is from the Goodwill and my boots are from Barnaby Jack Vintage (search that in Etsy!).
What fall traditions have you upheld this season? I've still yet to get into pumpkin carving...the inside is just too gross!
Happy November, friends :)
Today was wayyyy too hot for this 'fit but Instagram is all a lie anyway so what does it matter (insert "shrug" emoji here). Indiana weather has gotten me to this point where I just wear what I please because it's impossible to plan ahead!
Momma got me this denim jacket with a sherpa collar AND these super sweet slippies for my birthday! We got to spend Sunday afternoon playing around Target and TJ Maxx and then got Olive Garden for dinner AND watched an 80s movie together. May or may not have been the best birthday of my life...combined with the day date Taylor took me on the day before! I'm very much 25 and spoiled and I am so grateful.
My black high waisted skinnies are from American Eagle and once I chopped off the extra four inches off the bottom they are the most flattering fit!
I know I'll be rocking this simple denim beauty all season long... now let's just wait for it to be appropriate for the temperature.
Every once in a while "that" piece comes into your life and just gets you too excited...here's that piece!! Honey Lake has this skirt in my favorite midi-almost-maxi length and it could easily be dressed up with a button up collared shirt or go boho with a crop top like I did here!
ps--this skirt is sold out in S and M but follow them on insta at @honeylakeboutique for a restock alert!
My velvet blush heels were a clearance find from Macy's this summer and I almost didn't get them because I questioned how often I'd actually be able to wear fuzzy pink heels. I will tell you girl, I surprised myself! I positively love them and I think it's a fun contrast again the more classic stripes.
I love when clothes have adjustable features (like this belt!). Because the skirt is really meant to be worn on the hips, the belt made it so that I could wear it high waisted! I love the bow feature because that obviously makes it much more girly and sweet. The belt is unattached so you can tie the bow on the sides as well!
I finished off this boho look with mirrored sunnies from DCB and think they go perfectly with it!
What pieces did you find this summer that you still love?!
As you may have already known, Evan spent the summer studying up for the bar exam.
I spent my summer tiptoeing around the house trying to pretend I wasn't here.
I'm not a stomper, so i can sneak around the house easily enough, but boredom in the quiet set in pretttyyy quickly. I'm a big fan of listening to my beloved Gilmore Girls on the Netflix or putting my current fav Spotify playlist on repeat. The only issue is that when I put my headphones in I would still have to carry my phone around and that just tipped me over the first world problem scale. (I surely hope you get the joke here, I'm well aware that's not a real problem, but boy was it plaguing me).
This is where Sudio Sweden and their "Vasa Bla" earbuds come into play. It takes all of 10 seconds to pair with your phone and then BOOM! you're hands free and able to rock some wicked dance moves while doing laundry or dishes or other menial house things or....exercising!
I love the black and rose gold color option as it is feminine but still sleek and demure.
Evan has thankfully completed the bar exam but my love of these earbuds has yet to leave me...these are the perfect solution for my fellow friends who just need to be cord-free. Use code "forthedaintydays" at checkout for a discount on anything site-wide!
What are your tricks for surviving boring house duties? Maybe if I have a few tricks up my sleeve I'll be more motivated...
Behind the dainty days is a whole lot of planning. And coffee.
