When it comes to everyday dressing, my wardrobe is made up of simple and easy-to-wear pieces. Graphic tees have been a recent go-to, and I like to pair them with retro high-waisted denim, a leather jacket and boots. In terms of accessories, these fancy pony-tail holders from Anthropologie play the part of both bracelet and hair tie–big win in my book.

It’s football season.

On Thursday, Jake and I made our way back to BYU to cheer on the Cougars in their first home game of the season. The weather was an ideal 67 degrees (cool enough to wear my new denim jacket) and the Cougar Dogs were grilled to perfection. After all, isn’t that what it’s all about–what to wear and what to eat?  You know I’m right.

the lineup: fall boots

Four styles to add to your fall lineup:

The High Heel

In a season known for chunky layers, my heeled boots get the most wear because they make me feel long and lean. I generally pair them with dark wash denim for a flattering, figure friendly look.


The Bootie

I give you the ultimate mix of function and fashion. With a smaller heel, they’re perfect for a long day at the office or a list full of errands. What’s better than boots you’ll actually want to walk in?


The Cowboy (similar)

Rugged, ruff and tumble boots are a recent addition to my lineup. I like to pair them with skinny jeans and cable-knit sweaters, especially on days when rain or snow is in the forecast.


The Boyfriend

Even though we’re borrowing these boots from the boys, I still like to look for statement making details. Brass eyelets, brogue wingtips or leather laces add visual interest and give personality to your everyday look.
