English inspired.

Fall is quickly approaching, people! Can you even believe it?! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was posting on the latest in summer sandals and espadrilles! This time of year indeed means most of us are wrapping up our summer vacations, getting ready for school to start, and making lots of those back-to-school shopping trips. Look on the bright side, though--just means you get to trade in your summery wedges for chic boots! This season, fall is inspired by 'English prep'--think skinny cargos, layered looks with fitted jackets & blazers on top, and sleek riding boots. Plus, neutrals and earthy-tones are all the rage!

For example, we got these preppy & pretty Seychelles 'Bismuth' Booties--coated in distressed suede that gives them that boost of vintage-oxford. The 3 1/2" stacked heel is the perfect little lift you need to get you through the day in style. Great price, great fall bootie!

And if you're longing for a little more leather up your leg, the Miz Mooz 'Solis' Boot is surely callin' your name! All-leather with a fun lace-up detail and one fantastic 4" covered heel--what more could you ask for?!...I'll tell ya...maybe a sweet faux-fur lining? Yep, this prep-love boot is somethin' you'll keep pulling outta your closet to wear with skinny jeans & fitted cargos all season long.

And I couldn't just pass up showing you all this adorably double breasted military style jacket: the Kensie Faded Tweed Jacket! Check out those sassy skinny pockets and ruched shoulder details. The perfect autumn item to throw on with any outfit for any ol' occasion--and you're buttoned-up & out the door.

Are you ready for prep-school fall?

  1. I love those Seychelles. I almost bought booties like that from Barney's but these are a great cheaper quality alternative!

  4. I love the solis boots! I have to say I have so many winter shoes and clothes that I gave them their own room! Yes, I know they aren't animate objects. I'm not that out of touch :-) Loving the equestrian influence this fall/winter.
