Pumpkin Picking!!!!

        Hi Everyone and Welcome Back! TGIT to you all! I hope your week has been a good one and more importantly that it's been flying by for you so you can get to the weekend!! Our weekend was jam packed with wonderful family fun. We finally got to go Pumpkin Picking! It was as fun as you could imagine, especially since it was my daughter Genevieve's first time in the Pumpkin Patch. When preparing my look for that fun filled busy day of walking I made sure to do comfy and fashionable! My big brother Christopher his beautiful wife Ellie and their family, my cousin Joanna and her family including her adorable new baby boy and my big sister Stephanie and her husband Michael who had twins earlier this year, a beautiful little boy (who is also my godson) and a gorgeous little girl. She got to bring her children to the pumpkin patch for the first time ever as well. I really missed my oldest sister Natalie and her family but since she's still recovering from being sick, she wasn't able to join us but she was in our thoughts the whole day. It was a lot of fun for all and super packed. Here's how I styled myself.

We have been having some super warm weather lately which has been making going for walks so much more inviting since you get to enjoy all the foliage and colors of Autumn with the feel of summer. I had a meeting this morning but after it was so beautiful a day we decided to take advantage and go for a walk. I was wearing JustFab from head to toe. This is what I had on when we went for our quick walk.

Bordeaux To The Rescue!

    Hello Everyone and Welcome Back! I apologize for being missing last week. There was Hurricane Matthew Prep (I hope you all were OK and stayed safe during that madness!) and We had a few family emergencies and being caught up in them, I didn't realize I didn't do my blog post. Thank God everyone is OK and finally on the mend and The Hurricane has passed us over here in NY. With all that said we did have some good things between all the craziness and one of them is my Cousin's beautiful baby boy was Christened. Now when your dealing with the vestiges of a Hurricane and you have an event to attend and you're in the middle of the beautiful and colorful Fall season, what color do you go with to make yourself presentable? Answer: BORDEAUX. Not only is this STUNNING color rich and vibrant enough to be worn in any season (in my opinion)  its a STAPLE of Fall wardrobes and its dark enough that it can hide little imperfections (like in my case some wet spots from the rain lol).  Here's how I styled myself for this event

I really enjoyed wearing Oren because not only is she a gorgeous boot with leather and suede combo but her height made it perfect to protect against the bad weather and eliminated the need for stockings which if you're anything like me is definitely a win!

Another very special event that I celebrated was the 5 year Anniversary of my Convalidation Ceremony. To those of you that aren't familiar with that term it's the Catholic Church's way of acknowledging and blessing a marriage that was previously not done in a church. My Hubby and I celebrated by going out to dinner just the two of us. Here's how Bordeaux saved the day or night in this case again lol

Welcoming In The Fall...

        Happy Monday everyone and Welcome Back! I hope you had wonderful weekend! Mine was packed with the birthday celebration of my 7 year old son Christian on Friday, the birthday celebration of my 18 year old nephew Ramzees on Saturday, the celebrating of my daughter Genevieve turning 7 months old on Sunday and last but not least the welcoming of the Fall season! Libras have taken over! Lots of pics taken and memories made and shared and love for life and everyone in it. There was especially love and happiness because boots and booties are officially the footwear of the season and I'm SO here for it!

Of course with all these happenings there wasn't much time for photoshoots in this beautiful but brisk weather so today after doing my errands and hitting the gym I had just enough time to do a quick but fun fall photoshoot!

It was so fun to take a walk and see the sun dappling through the trees and starting to see the changes taking place in the leaves and even a few on the ground already! Its exciting to know a bloom of color is going to be taking place shortly. It was wonderful to take a break from hectic life to really just enjoy nature and my environment and the beauty around me, and all the while being in my cute and fashionable jeans and boots by JustFab. Today was a great day. I hope your Monday was equally great. As always Thank You for stopping by!

Tons of Fun with Boots!

   Happy Monday and Welcome Back! As you know (since I know you follow the blog and have subscribed so you never miss an edition *wink wink*) last week Wednesday was #NationalBootieDay and boy did I have a blast celebrating! Some may even say I had a little too much fun. LOL! I took one of my favorite Jersey dresses and paired it with 4 of my favorite booties to thoroughly celebrate the day. And to add to the festivities Shoedazzle and JustFab had a sale of 30% off all booties for that day. Can you say Winning???

Bottom Left "Mavis" in Taupe by JustFab, Bottom Right "JoJet" in black by Shoedazzle.

Since then the weather has gotten cooler and definitely more fickle and so I was thrilled to be able to finally start wearing my full boots! Its been so fun getting to pair my new boots with old clothes and vise versa to expand my fall wardrobe and even better I've been learning ways to switch it up and add to it for better, longer and more versatile wear. Here's a few ways I've worn some of my boots so far.

These beauties above are named "Holli" in Whiskey and she can be found currently on JustFab. She's gorgeous and SUPER comfy and I ran errands in her all day and I mean I ran and not one issue to be had! Another pair I wore over this weekend was "Lavine" in Cognac by Leila Stone from Shoedazzle. She was purchased last year in late summer and due to my pregnancy I never got to wear her. Corrected that This year for sure as she's a perfect fall boot because she can be worn with dresses and skirts as well jeans and leggings.

Booties For The Win!

     Hey Everyone! Happy Monday and Welcome Back! With the weather being so indecisive and taking us back and forth with warm and cool and rainy spells, I think its definitely safe to say booties are a better bet to seal your look and even knock it out of the park, while still being not only stylish and comfortable but weather appropriate too. Here are a few ways I've been styling my different types of booties.

Cutouts: Great for warmer weather days, allow for air flow so your feet don't get and stay sweaty, but still add to your outfits look.

Solid or Whole Booties: No cut outs or openings made for colder and even wet weather. Insulate and look great with fall AND winter looks.

This Wednesday on September 14th its #NationalBootieDay so make sure you have yours ready to be part of the fun! Don't own any booties yet? No worries as I'm sure Shoedazzle and JustFab will be having sales which are especially great when you're on a budget!  Be sure to stop by and check them out.
