moccasins and boots for fall

My feet have grow-splosioned yet again. My dogs have been barkin' for months but it actually took me way too long to realize I needed new shoes. Like all summer. Like I've been coming home from work with sore, swollen feet every single day, feet that were crammed into my too-small shoes all day and being like, "man, my feet are acting crazy what is UP?!?!" instead of, "man, my shoes are clearly too small!"

But no longer! One much-awaited trip to DSW this weekend and my feet are all set for fall with the cutest pair of moccasins and new tall boots. Yipee! I guess I am going through a southwestern thing? Except I really don't think I am.

I've seen quite a few ladies who are much more stylish than me pulling off this moccasin thing lately and so when I saw these sweet softies by Rock and Candy I felt like maybe I could "bring it" enough to rock the mocs this fall. Two days in and going strong. Love them! Since I stepped out to Ikea in them I'll be linking up with Mandy at The Haps for her "Steppin Out" post this week.

The boots above were only $60 and look so much like these ones from Free People that I was coveting that I feel like I win some kind of cheapskate happiness award! 

So our weekend was pretty quiet. We did a road trip to Ikea today that left me a little exhausted and a little underwhelmed and also pissed at myself for opting not to get some curtains that I really should've gotten and now it's too late because Ikea is faaaaar away. But whatever. We did get Otto a twin bed that we'll paint & build next weekend and that's super exciting. 
And this little missy? Well, I just wanted to share this pic because this little missy is about as sweet as they come. 

pssst. If you wouldn't mind clicking the button on the left that says "Loretta says..." and then clicking the owl on the left, Top Baby Blogs is doing a reset today and I'd love to keep my spot in the Top 75. Thanks!
