Timely finds for the weeks ahead
Lately I've been noticing and loving hiking boot style booties, so it was a happy coincidence that my friend Haley and I went to Sam Edelman last weekend and she tried on the Sondra bootie below. I absolutely loved them on her. They gave off a casual sexy vibe. I especially loved the red, white and black multicolored laces. I was very tempted to try them, but I had already hit my spending limit (see what I bought below). While I loved the Sondra, the preppy Nordic boots below in the glazed pecan color are still on my mind. Sometimes it's cold but not snowing, so you don't want to wear snow boots and these would be great. Can you tell that I'm convincing myself I need them?
What did I buy at Sam Edelman? I bought this awesome leather jacket that was $500 and is now $189! Yes, if you can, you should buy it. It's amazing. I also bought the Olencia knee-high boots below. I have leather jackets but they are plain and don't have a belt. I thought this one was unique and it was a STEAL. Haley has great taste, she's honest, knows my vibe, and therefore is a great shopping buddy agreed that I should get the jacket, so it's mine. The leather is thick, buttery soft and gorgeous and I highly recommend it.

There's something for everyone. A few of my favorite things from her list include the tear-away track pants (in navy and white) from Tory Burch, Emu Australian Mayberry Slides, and Dahlia shower caps,
