Give 'Em The Boot

I don't know about you, but Monday seemed to go by, on the one hand, at a snail's pace and on the other hand at the speed of sound.  Due to far too many exhausting issues I found myself off in la-la land dreaming about a pile of boots I can't afford, but would sure like to if the money fairies would ever show up to drop off the dollars. *Girls you know we're in the middle of an over-the-knee boot fashion swarm - but I included some others as well.*

A girl can dream.

Fall 2010 Boots


It's a good thing I can multi-task because as the sun dropped somehow I woke up back in line at Cold Stone just as the guy was asking what I wanted (miracle).  If you're near one of their locations - hey if you can just drive to one of their locations - I highly recommend the Key To My Heart key lime summer concoction they've dreamed up. It saved me from kicking my tv out the window tonight when I wasted 20 whole minutes of my life that I can never retrieve just to find out that Ali picked Roberto (bachelorette colossal waste of air time, my time, your time, anytime).  What-ever.  It was not the most shocking finale yet.  Yawwwwwn.  But I am glad Chris escaped her evil grip with his dignity intact.  Miracles happen every day.

You hear that money fairies?  Money fairies....??

Top Row (L-R):  Nine West-OnTheMoon, House of Harlow-Samia, Loeffler Randall-Riley Over-the-Knee, Elizabeth and James-Wrapped Wedge Over-the-Knee
Bottom Row (L-R):  Miu Miu-Tall Motorcycle, Chloe-Lace-Up Wedge Tall Boot, Stuart Weitzman-Wooden Clog Bottom, Gucci-Catherine High Wedge

So are over-the-knee boots still going to be 'in' this year? I like those three on the top row.

Katie said...

Oh I'm always looking at boots. Even now with it 100 degrees outside. Even with all my bad reality TV addictions I can't watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette - just hearing about it annoys me, who knows what would happen if I actually watched.

this free bird said...

Hey CB - yes - over-the-knee boots are all the rage. not sure how i'll personally withstand that given my height restrictions, but they are gorgeous boots.

And Katie...I've watched a grand total of maybe 45 minutes this time around and otherwise hadn't watched since...well actually I don't even know. Trista? Oh no, that jackass that picked one then dumped her for the alternate...anyhow. i've lost valuable brain cells over this. not happy. should have stuck with you on this one. ugh.

Leia said...

I love... those... boots! I LIVED in OTK boots last winter; don't know how I would have survived the cold without them! Now I don't even want to THINK about any other kind of boot (except ankle boots, ahem). Also, I was slightly confused at the end of the post but have now realised it was about The Bachelor! /feels stupid

Debby said...

Love boots! Your pics. are gorgeous! Yes, I watched the Bachelorette... I felt bad for Chris but kept waiting for him to cry, he didn't even tear up so maybe he wasn't as into her as I thought! xo

p.s. Anthropologie giveaway if you are interested. xo

Cool Gal said...

Love the wooden clog bottom Stuart Weitzman pair. Love 'em!

Bachelorette...no surprise! I hope Chris is the next Bachelor. Cute and classy.

Cara said...

I would take any of these boots any day!

Daisy said...

haha oops I hadn't watched yet. usually I'm so good about watching on time, but I was cleaning and prepping for guests last night, no time for TV!

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

I NEED that third pair!! The nude color is perfection! I could wear those with so much!

Ms. Givens said...

Love the tall motorcycle boots. I like either square toe or pointy toe. The only rounded toe boots I like are Justin Ropers, of which, I own 4 pairs. Can you picture that? :)

Half Dressed said...

Geesh I love boots, there are so many awesome ones around at the moment, I love the first ones of the second row!

Boots!!!! My consolation prize for when summer ends! LOVE THEM!

Rachel said...

I'm still convinced my 5'2 self probably can't pull of the over-the-knee boots. But I suppose I should give it a shot, right? Plus, I loooove that House of Harlow 1960 pair!

Nikki said...

What I would do for those Loeffler Randall boots! They are perfection!!!

The four in the top row are calling my name. Seriously, a girl can never have too many boots! Love!! :)

Brianna said...

Oh boots, how I love them. I've been looking for boots since summer started, how sad is that?

Monique said...

Your blog is adorable! I'm SUCH a sucker for boots. You've got fantastic taste darling xo

Marie Z. said...

I would be happy with any of these boots in my closet. After they visit you please send those money fairies up North, k.? Thanks!

Abby said...

I'm dreaming of knee-high boots that are brown and comfy and elegant at the same time...

the chirpy bird said...

I found myself in Nordstrom yesterday with the Michael Kors Suede tall boot on.... I had to ask the attendant to please make sure "under no circumstances" am I to leave with a pair of boots. He was as unimpressed as I was about not taking them home!
ahaha

Stacey said...

Gimme that Gucci Catherine High Wedge. Love it!

Nicole said...

I love the first three boots!!!!

Valerie said...

Those Riley over the knee boots are calling my name! I can seriously hear them now. I'd wear them with everything (including the J Crew shorts that we've both been wearing everywhere). I loved your comment yesterday. How fun would it be to run into each other wearing the same outfit! Thanks again for posting those shorts, they've changed my life. Haha. They really are fabulous though- so comfy.

I couldn't stay awake for the Bachelorette and I saw this morning who won. I'll probably fast forward the entire 2 hours and watch the last five minutes. Good to know I didn't miss much.

Annie said...

OneCraftyFox said...

The money fairy told me she would fund the top left pair. God bless those darn little money fairies....!!

Melissa said...

Oh my, this just got me excited for fall!

Jesa said...

I've been dreaming of fall lately-I can't wait. I've been so impressed with nine west in the last year! They've really stepped up there game!

P.S. omg lavender lemonade???!! Why have I never hear of this! I'm officially on a mission.

shari @ little blue deer said...

Those boots are sick! I'm glad I bought some biker boots last year, cannot WAIT to pull them out again, counting the days! XO!

Join the Gossip said...

LOL i watched this season because I liked Chris. I think he's a cutie. If he's the Bacholor I'll totally watch that season, too. Usually not a big fan of the show though.

Love the boots, especially the first two pairs =)

Christine Vi said...

Oh, my favorite is the last boot on the first row but they are all so stylish! I haven't tried this new Coldstone mix, I'll have to do that ASAP.

I know.. she picked Roberto, not surprising.

Thank you for your comment on my blog!

Alicia said...

ahhh, i'm officially excited for fall! i LOVE boots... can't wait to pull them out from under my bed! ;) and that key lime concoction you speak of sounds delicious!

Susan said...

Mid summer ... I wore boots to a concert on the weekend with skinny jeans tucked in.

Loving pair 2 and pair 8 :)

I watched the entire thing ... drank almost a bottle of wine to get through it.
cheers

MT Days & Nights said...

I love boots, I even wear them in the summer with a dress! The Chloe and Elizabeth and James ones are my faves.

shealennon said...

Great boots, especially the Loeffler Randall ones! Wish it was below 100 degrees here and I could wear boots!

ivy's closet said...

They look cool...but still I wouldn't want to be sweating in them right now, and I dunno if they'd do me any good when it gets really bad with snow and ice here. Yeah, we get all the bad weather here.

Jess said...

Hahah - you're just like me. Dreaming about clothes when you should be working ;)

I love them all, girl! Especially the Elizabeth and James pair.

Bren said...

OK..dying for those E & J's!!! I must have them for Fall! and yes, I watched that train wreck of a show Bachelorette! It's so stu-pid! I didn't even care who won (wait is that winning?), and I watched anyway. I don't know why I watched and have zero excuse. :)

She Wore It Well said...

I love boots, but I find them so difficult to wear. Feel a bit tarty wearing them to my conservative banking job and just can't be bothered on the weekends. Plus I always find something ELSE I'd rather spend my money on. Sigh.

But I did fall hard for my YSL's, they're so easy to wear, and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO comfy!

Clare Lennon said...

I love leather boots! Now if I could just move out of Florida so that I can justify buying them.

Closet Fashionista said...

I don't want to see BOOTS!! Are you SERIOUSLY trying to kill me?! You know up here in the Great White North, it will be snowing by next week and you show me BOOTS?! Oh hell girl. You're KILLING me!
ps: I ordered my damb ebelskiver pan.

Turquoise and Lily said...

nice choices for boots.. i love them

Marcie said...

Last night's after the final rose was soooooooo boring!! It was SUCH a waste of time. The Bachelor Pad better deliver or I am done with this franchise.

Love these boots! I really want a pair of riding boots for the fall. I was at Marshalls the other day and they had amazing boots from coach cheap!! Of course they only had a size 11 left.

I am definitely drooling over those boots....boots are all I can think about lately!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Come on fall! I need some new boots, too. Thanks for your lovely selections!

Elle said...

I am obsessed with those Loeffler Randall boots - they are soo versatile and I NEED them for fall!! Great picks!

Jammer said...

I need a money tree! I think they only grow in Bill Gates' backyard though :(

Kerri said...

ALL days go fast for me as i get older.

love those high boots!

Fifth Sparrow said...

Boots are my weakness, and these are all absolutely gorgeous! As sad as it is to say bye to summer at least I can cuddle some new boots! Now, when you track down that money fairy... send her my way!!

Anna Jane said...

Ali..ew. That's all she deserves from this gal.

Why must the Loeffler Randall boots taunt me so?

Melissa~ said...

I understand you.
On my blog I dream every month, I peack my favourites of a random brand, and I post them, I call it "I need this shoes".

Great selection BTW.
Kisses!

Taylor said...

Boots are my downfall...Fall boots...ah, they are glorious. Over the knee boots sound delicious (question: if I am 5'3" would they still look ok?), but any boots these days sound delicious. I was eyeing up a pair of Frye Boots, they are so EXPENSIVE, it's tantalizing. I love me a good pair of leather boots...mmm!

Now this Cold Stone concoction you speak of...it sounds interesting! I love Key Lime pie things, and I have a gift card to Cold stone...I'm thinking I'm gonna have to go.It's a must. I will let you know how it goes!!

I love over-the-knee boots although I'm certain that I can't pull them off. Regular boots are hard enough for me; they rarely fit my calves!

Love those boots!!! I am so excited to buy new boots this fall! also, I heard that the bachelorette finale wasn't that cool. I don't watch the show but people talk about it enough for me to know what the hell is going on. And I want money fairies too!

Ans said...

Great taste, come on winter!!! only joking!!!

Indie.Tea said...

I really, really want some boots myself...some new wedge booties actually (I'm too short to wear high boots...though they are so chic).

OF COURSE A GIRL CAN DREAM. That's what magazines are for! Haha. But really. I (not so) secretly like to go to the bookstore when I'm bored and pour over pretty clothes and GOLLY I SOUND VAIN. *Insert something profound here*

I love those boots! I was actually trying to think about what boots I should get for winter. I love all of these. Not that I can afford them... ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
