Middle of the Night Blogging

I'm sitting here at 5:20am in the morning typing this blog post...not because I'm actually up early for the day, but because I can't sleep!  I'm battling a sore throat and stuffy nose and seriously can barely breathe while lying down...I feel like a zombie at the moment.  It's gonna be a long day I fear.  I figured since I was up I might as well blog!

I'm so happy it's Friday!  I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures in our forecast starting this weekend...is fall actually right around the corner?  I'm crossing my fingers!  I am so excited for fall this year.  I can't wait for the chilly mornings, the pumpkin patches, crock pot stews, the holidays...bring it on!  With the start of fall it means it's time to say goodbye (temporarily) to sandals...my summer staple.  This summer I picked up quite a few flat sandals and put them all to good use.  Once pair in particular I really loved were my mint green sandals...they always provide that fun pop of color I'm looking for in an outfit:

As I say goodbye to sandal season I welcome boot season with open arms.  I'm super excited to pull out my boot collection and add a few more winter shoes to the rotation.  I am a little perplexed about how to go about winter shoes where I live now...with the possibility of snow.  I don't want to be wearing snow shoes all the time and some days I just don't feel like wearing regular boots either, so I need to find some good possibilities to get me through the winter.  Wedge booties are on my radar at the moment but I'm still just not sure which style suits me best...the hunt continues.  

I think I'll try to grab a few more zzz's before the morning officially begins in about an hour...if you need me you can probably find me wrapped up in a blanket on the couch today.  I'm hoping this cold passes quick!

Happy Friday to you!

  1. Happy Friday Jenni. I'm looking forward to the fall weather too. Unfortunately I won't see cooler weather until October since I live here in Florida. I love this outfit on you and the mint green sandals are super cute. I hope that you get well soon and that you get some sleep today.

  2. Take care, Jenni. I hope you can shake this cold off quickly. It's no fun to be sick, especially when the weather is so so good.

    1. I agree! I am feeling a little better today but that may have something to do with the Sudafed I took this morning...it's wearing off now and I'm feeling it again..ahh!

  3. I love how the coral and mint look together! I'm sad to put my sandals away for boots. When it eventually snows here, I wear my Hunter rain boots since I didn't want to invest in a second pair for the snow. I'm a new follower :)

  6. I SO want some booties and can't find just the right pair. I bought the Tom's wedges and like them but I really need a flat because I walk a ton and chase after a 3 year old. I ordered some from Nordstrom's and am waiting for them to come in but they have 3 buckles and I'm not sure that's not just too many buckles. I'll decide when they come in. I like the booties from JCrew with one small buckle.

    1. Did you order the BP booties with the three buckles? I like those but also wonder what they look like on...I'd love to hear your review!

    2. Yes, the BP rally bootie. I'll let you know what I think about them when they come in.
