A girl who wore boots in 90 degree weather!


OK, lets be honest for a second here, here in Florida we do not get the seasons. No real fall cool weather, or at least not consistent. Not consistent enough for boot wearing enough. This year, my thoughts are, I’m going to wear these boots and screw that hot weather. And wow, was I suffering for it. Suffering for fashion. Not the best move but still a humorous one in the end when I went from being hot to sounding like SpongeBob walking around. You know when his shoes squeak as he walks. UGH.

2016-09-10_13.18.55.jpgI just got this dress from Target the other day, I was not normally the major plaid wearer until recently. I really like it and my hubby even stated that he likes the prints. Hmm. For this dress, I knew I wanted to wear my ALDO otk boots! However, it was hotter than Mt DOOM.(LOTR reference. #sorrynotsorry #nerdlife) The only thing about this dress that I have to say is any kind of bad, is that the shoulders are a bit small. The rest of the dress fit perfectly. But that part. That’s OK, I still love the dress. I need it in red now.

2016-09-10_13.16.34.jpgIt was so incredibly hot yesterday, but still wore the freaking boots. My philosophy was I spent a lot of money on them I am going to wear them Damnit! #lifeisshortwearthedamnboots


I also forgot my sunnies. Which was not the best thing to happen to someone who is walking around a board walk.

So when wandering about my friend  OnceUponAdimeandMakeup went for brunch at a cute restaurant.

gritsThis was their take on grits. It was also my first time eating said grits. It is an interesting texture. They put brown sugar and pecans in theirs,as well as a raddish? I don’t know what that was doing in there for a sweet dish.

2016-09-10_14.00.27.jpgThis was my salmon. It was smoked salmon on a fresh baked bisquit with home made horseradish sauce and spring salad with oranges. The combination of salty and sweet was perfect and it was not a hot meal so it was perfect for the dork who wore boots in 900 degree weather.

Over all we had a great time!

    What a pretty fall look! Sometimes I think I would like to live somewhere with nice weather year round, but maybe I would miss dressing for the seasons. Way to suffer for fashion 😉

      Thank you shea! I sometimes miss the separate seasons.

    This plaid dress is so cute, and I love it paired with the boots! I hope the weather cools off for you this fall so you get a lot of wear out of them!

    That is a great shirt dress, and our boots look really nice, even if it was too hot to enjoy wearing them! 🙂
