Hi Dolls! I’m sure all have been doing fabulously since my last post. So I’m super excited for a few reasons. One, I start grad school on Wednesday (Go me!). And two, Fall fashion is in full swing, which means Fall shoes! Did I tell yall I adore a good bootie? Welp, now you know. There are literally a three dozen pairs of booties/boots I want right now. Therefore, I am pre warning you that the next few weeks will feature them. Trust will me, you will not be disappointed. So without further adieu, let’s get to the shoes and booze.
Sergio Rossi “Caged Bootie”
These are at the tip top of my wish list. Here is another idea for the transition weather from Summer to Fall. And they are simply gorgeous. The heel is nice and high (no kitten heels around here ladies) and the color is the most alluring shade of purple ever. I literally felt like royalty in them. The picture does not do them justice. I know they are a bit pricey, but that’s what credit cards are for. Right??
Pedro Garcia “Rowan” Bootie
How adorable are these? The color and heel are perfection and the pointed tip is spot on as this style has made a comeback this season. These are definitely a pair of booties you will wear often. They are the perfect complement to a pant suit, a dress (yall now I like to show leg), or a pair of jeans. Annnd, surprisingly, they are not as uncomfortable as I would have thought. Now I would not suggest you go stomping around on the concrete for blocks at a time, but you can certainly make it through the work day or a date in them.
10 Crosby Derek Lam “Gen” Bootie
These are a great pair of booties to have just because. They don’t go with anything in particular because they look great with everything. As much as I love the light/dark color contrast, I would opt for different color combo because light tan suede and my four year old daughter do not mix (they also come in a Burgundy/Brown combo). These are very high at 5.5”; however, they do have a 1” platform so you should be fine.
This week I had to go back to my white liquor. The drink is one of the first one’s I learn to make when I started bartending. It’s simple, but most importantly it’s delicious.
1.5 oz Vodka
1 oz lime juice
1 oz triple sec
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime. Note* Have a bit of fun with this drink by replacing triple sec with blue curacoa. It has the same flavor as triple sec, but is more fun. Enjoy!
Until next time…
