Some Boots Are Not Made for Walking

Story time. I’m a pretty active person. I mean I’m not an Olympic athlete by any means- but I try to exercise pretty regularly. A few years ago I went on a day hike with some friends. Nothing too arduous, a pretty moderate hike. Everything was going great until descending one hill. Things were a bit slick and I was a bit eager and and I took the expedited route down the hill. (I fell, guys.) When I reached the my destination, covered in mud, I realized I felt a slight breeze on my foot. I looked at the bottom of my boot only to realize I was sole-less. I apologize I couldn’t pass that pun up. Needless to say the hike back was drafty and a little wet, and I was forced to part with my favorite boots.

It’s reasons like that that made me really test out our line of boots before release. I literally told some people to take a hike. I finally found the materials and designs that would hold up on unsteady turf, mud, rocks, and whatever else your feet might walk on. Oh, and they’re pretty cute, too.

So grab a pair and take a hike. Beware of inclines.

Day Out Essentials

I wake up early every day. I’m used to it by now- well, mostly. Somehow I realize about 20 minutes from home that I’ve forgotten something. Sometimes it’s innocuous but sometimes it’s something really important. So now I try to lay out everything I need the night before. It’s foolproof. (almost).

I thought I’d share one of my layouts for a full day out. First thing I make sure I have is my purse- which contains my driver’s license. That’s a big one, folks, I’ve made that mistake. I love leather bags. If you want to drop some serious cash, Nordstrom has a beautiful shoulder bag. You can get it here.

Once I can legally operate a motor vehicle, I make sure I have my phone and tablet or laptop if I’ll need to be doing some work…or blogging.

And of course, you have to wear clothes in public, today I wanted to walk the line between casual and really casual so I opted for some boots- these are from our 2016 Fall line and they are oh so comfy. My striped hoodie is also from the Fall line and is so soft that I have 3 of the same ones…..in the same color. Touch one for yourself and you’ll understand.

As always, visit the store to snag the items I mentioned. And tell me, how do you make sure you have everything you need? Let’s chat.
