Fashion Friday: Booties

One of my friends recently got back from honeymooning in Europe, so of course we had to have a full fledged, detailed conversation about the fashion in Paris. I think we spent a good 30 minutes (and many more since then) discussing the shoes that all the ladies seem to be wearing over there. Suede, wedge, booties in neutral colors. I am now obsessed and on a very serious hunt for a pair and I simply must have them!

The above are so perfectly, perfect. If I could just find them...

Not as French, but some very cute, heeled versions:

For now, I'm settling for these. Can't beat $18!

Hello Pumpkin!

It's baaaaaack! Pumpkin that is. Sure, it's 100 degrees here, but Pumpkin Spice is back at Starbucks which means Autumn is on the horizon and I can not wait.
For months already (sad, I know) I've been longing for my tights, mittens, and all things pumpkin. Like many people, I love fall. The changing colors, the spicy scent of apples and cinnamon, and best of all, the little chill in the air.
So because it is still hot, hot, hot here I've had to make my own start to fall. Lots of (iced) Pumpkin Coffee's, wearing pants when it get below 97, and baking. This week alone I've made Banana bread, Pumpkin Spice coffee sauce, and Pumpkin Applesauce. Cool weather, please come quick!
