Fall Essential

Jacket - GAP, Tee - Nordstrom, Skirt - F21, Scarf - Macy's, Boots - Steve Madden
Last weekend, my garage flooded and I nearly lost two pairs of shoes to the disaster. Luckily, after I finished crying and pounding my fists on the ground and screaming "Why, God, why?" at the ceiling, I was able to give them CPR, revive them, sedate them, and save them from oblivion. Whew. It was a close one, but miracles do happen.

When I was running crazily through the garage trying to save my shoes calmly assessing the flood damage, I realized that the pair of shoes I was most scared to find in a puddle of water was my absolute favorite, worn, comfy, goes-with-everything, good old riding boots. I've had these for a few years now, and they've definitely seen better days, but they are my favorite fall essential and I wear the heck out of them all season. I can't get enough of them (as you will soon see, you've been warned), and I'm already tearing up thinking about the day that I'll have to retire them. There are loads of riding boot options out there, but I haven't seen any that I love more than these. I love that they are a bit distressed and that perfect cognac color that just seems to suit everything.

If you don't have a pair of riding boots for the fall, run (don't walk) and get a pair. Better yet, buy two in case of flooding. It will save you a lot of tears and rolled eye looks from the Boyfriend.

Tennis Ball Anyone?

Shirt - Gifted, Sash Belt - H&M, Skirt - Nordstrom, Necklace - H&M, Shoes - JustFab
Up until last week, the weather in California really could not make up its mind as to whether it was winter or fall or summer. I'm not kidding, the temps in LA hit 82 degrees over Thanksgiving weekend! Unfortunately, Mother Nature has now decided that it is definitely time for winter in Northern California, so this will probably be my last bare legs post for the year. And per usual, I will now begin my whining about how I dislike the cold. Yeah, you might want to check back on the blog in March if you have a low tolerance for complaining. Just kidding! I'll try to keep it to a bare minimum.

I'd like to just spend one moment telling you how obsessed I am with highlighter, tennis ball, neon yellow-green. Yes. I just made up that unwieldy name for the color. Whatever it is, I love it. I can't stop buying shirts, tank tops, and jewelry in it. (My next purchase is going to be a pair of flats if I can find the perfect pair). So when I saw this necklace at H&M, I couldn't resist. I love how it's modern and pretty at the same time, and that it can turn up the volume on any outfit.
I'm so happy to be back, guys, after such a long and unintended hiatus. If you're still around, thank you for your faithfulness! Have a great weekend!

Where Have I Been?

Soap, soap, soaping desserts all month long! 
 Um. What? I can NOT believe how long it's been since I've been able to post on this blog. Are you guys still there? Is this thing on? I am so sorry. This past month has been amazingly crazy with work, a vacation, and then a few soap selling holiday shows. To beg for your forgiveness, (and to prove to you I'm not lying) I present you with some photos of some of my new soap items! I just started a Facebook page for The Soapery.
