I'm Getting the Boot(s)

I know it is only August, but does that mean it is too early to start drooling over boots?  I blame this longing on the Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale back in July, when I just had to have these beauties.  I adore them (and what was their wonderful sale price), and I am looking forward to sporting them in a few short months.  Right now it is kind of hard to imagine boot weather, but things can change fast here in the Bay Area.

Now, don't get me wrong.  I am a Floridian at heart (that is where I grew up), and I have never fully acclimated to the cooler temperatures we have here in the winter.  Boots are one of the small things I have to look forward to (have I ever told you how much I dislike it when it starts getting dark at 4:30 in the heart of winter?). So, I put together a little collection of boots I now have my eye on.  Apparently, I am very into laces and buckles this year.  Also, I am loving the peacock printed wellies.  Very unusual.  And the pink Hunters?  Are you kidding me.  I already have a purple aubergine pair, and think pink would make them less lonely:) Have you started checking out boots yet?  What do you have your eye on?




Also, I am playing with a new toy that I am just starting to understand (apparently, I tend to over-complicate things)  I made my boot collage using ShopStyle, and was able to make a clickable picture collage with a description pretty easily.  It doesn't quite have the homemade look of my usual Picnik collages, but maybe that is a good thing?  What do you guys think?  Easier to have everything available in one click (like above) or would you rather have a numbered collage with links are the bottom?  I might be playing with this for a while. It is certainly  keeping me busy right now.

Love those boots, Erin! Gorgeous! I also like this myriad of boots collage you made! Boots are the sole reason I like cold weather!

It is never to early to start thinking about boots of any kind, lol. I am already thinking about new suede boots for fall.

This past weekend was very rainy but friends and I went to a street festival anyways. I saw lots of cute girls rockin' cute rainboots with cute outfits ;)
