Fall has arrived! I’m so excited for this time of year! It is my favorite season. Although, Summer’s embrace still lingers, hints of Fall are making their debut gradually. I can feel it in the cooler mornings and nights. I can see it at the stores as they display Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (already!) paraphernalia. And just last night as I drove home from work, I could smell the sweet scent of burning firewood in the air. This gradual changing of the seasons will soon gift us with the splendor of Fall foliage. I love watching the leaves paint the landscape in brilliant hues. It is something I look forward to every year. (more…)
What’s a Thanksgiving celebration without a little family fun? Ever since my brother got married, we have always teased him about not cooking a turkey. Instead he and his wife, Shannon, usually order a turkey dinner from their local grocery store. Perish the thought…especially if you grew up in an Italian household like we did. (more…)
Due to the rain, we remained local for this photo shoot. Dad and I drove to the Thomas Stone House in Port Tobacco, MD. If you’re not familiar with the name, you’re not alone. When I first moved to Southern Maryland, I had no idea who Thomas Stone was either. However, I quickly learned that Thomas Stone was one of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. That is quite an accomplishment for a humble planter and lawyer. (more…)
It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week! I’ve been in a festive mood since the beginning of November. I was at the mall and Hallmark was having a special on Christmas cards. I could not help myself, I purchased two boxes of cards knowing I would probably only need one. (more…)
The Gettysburg National Military Park is one of my favorite Civil War battlefields to explore. It was in this area that the Battle of Gettysburg was fought over a 3-day period in July of 1863. For this photo shoot, we headed to the Pennsylvania State Memorial located at Cemetery Ridge, the primary defensive position of the Union Army. (more…)
About one year ago, I published a post called “Confessions of a New Blogger.” In it, I described my journey as a first time blogger and the realization that maintaining a weekly blog would be unsustainable given my other passions and desire to spend time with family and friends. (more…)
The arrival of Fall, my favorite time of year, softens the blow of Summer’s adieu. For me, routine replaces spontaneity and the countdown to Christmas begins! 🙂 Fall foliage captivates as I enjoy nature’s wandering work of art dancing all around me in vivid hues of yellow, orange, and red. Fall’s ephemeral beauty decorates the landscape in a kaleidoscope of leaves while the aroma of firewood fills the crisp evening air, awakening the senses. (more…)
I purchased these booties during the height of my enthusiasm for burgundy/wine colored heels. I knew they would look perfect with this plaid skirt I paired them with. I was going for a school-girl vibe with this photo shoot. I even brought along some graduate school books that matched my outfit. Thank you, Managerial Economics. 😉
The boots are super comfortable with a nice footbed and a heel height of approximately 3 inches. I had to walk through some gravel as we navigated our way through an elementary school and a high school. I swung on swings at the elementary school and even attempted to climb on the monkey bars. The kid in me was smiling!
The boot is an almond toe with a side zip closure. It has a suede upper and comes in black, dark blue, and dark red (my purchase). I really love the side buckle because it adds a charming detail to the booties. These boots are still available at Macy’s in all the colors I mention above, at least at the time of this post. A quick internet search for “Marc Fisher Tailynn booties” will bring up other options as well.
I highly recommend adding these booties to your Fall collection. I’ve gotten several compliments from co-workers, friends, and even strangers. I love the skinny heels and the wine color is so sexy and in the moment! Pair them with mini-skirts, leggings, and jeans. They will definitely amp up your look and get you noticed.
Style with a smile!
September through December is my favorite time of year. The oppressive heat of Summer dissipates into the more comfortable temperatures of Fall. Leaves begin to change colors putting on a spectacular show before dancing their final act through the air in a random spiral to the ground. Halloween comes and goes and before I know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner. (more…)
Last Saturday, the weather was partly sunny, around 58 degrees, and with a breeze. It was perfect weather for wearing booties. With the cooler temps, I paired them with a long-sleeved plaid top cinched with a belt and cords. Both top and pants are from Ann Taylor Loft. (more…)
