fall boots on the front porch

Fall is on the cusp, and consequently I’m now sporting boots on the regular. (Yes, already! I can’t help myself!) In addition to my favorite Chelsea boot styles, I did a bit of shopping around because I wanted some knee-high boots. For me it’s the ripped denim with the loose knee-length boots together. I have a feeling I’m going to be rocking this look a lot this fall.

Since I love seeing the mix of everyone’s personal taste and style on our team, I thought you would, too. We’ve been told that in North Carolina, there’s fall, and then there’s fake fall. Apparently the warm rainy weather we’re experiencing is just some pre-fall teasing and I’m not mad about it. Bring on the rain and the leaves, and of course the boots.

Our boots are included in the round-ups and we made one for women and men, because everyone needs at least one great pair of boots in their life. The best news is that the most expensive boots here are $128. They are linked from lowest to highest and we tried to include a variety of styles.

looking for inspiration? 

Here’s the crazy thing about me and inspiration: If you were to go into my bathroom inspiration board on Pinterest, there are bathrooms for sure, but there are also kitchens, there are closets, there are mudrooms, and there are hallways of houses! I’m not looking to copy and paste an inspirational image. I’m taking notes […]
