Loving Lately – A Few Fun Things

Happy Saturday, Friends!

It’s been a whirlwind of a week here, hence the lack of blog posts, and please know that I’ve missed it terribly. My computer was acting up, and now that we’ve got that working again, I’m back! So, I thought I’d pop in and say “hello!” as well as share some things that I’m loving lately.

Joules Field Welly Rain Boots

As you know, I’ve been searching for a good pair of rain boots, and I found these on Amazon. I absolutely LOVE them. They are so cute and comfortable. I really like the pink, because it adds a little bit of happiness to an otherwise gloomy, rainy day. The best part is that they’re on amazon prime, and we were able to use our cash back bonus to pay for them! Gotta love it when that happens! Guilt-free shopping  – sold!

all in good taste

Who doesn’t love a good coffee table book? Especially one from Kate Spade? My sweet husband surprised me with pre-ordering this one for me. I cannot wait to flip through it while sipping a good cup of coffee (during my little one’s nap, of course!).

Threshold Brown Faux Fur Throw

This is an incredibly soft & chic throw I recently added to our family room. My little one loves it just as much as I do. It’s machine washable, thank goodness. And, right now, it’s 15% off!

And, this is always a good reminder…

Weekend + First Signs of Fall

Happy Monday, Everyone! I hope that y’all had a fantastic weekend. I know we sure did. We did a little bit of this and that around the house, but mostly relaxed in this slightly cooler weather!

Our new chandelier is amazing in our master bedroom. My husband actually admitted after he put it up that it looked good! It’s going to sound silly, but I wake up feeling like a princess in our room now! I absolutely love it, and it so much better than our fan, which was barely used anyway.

I added the little white baby lamp shades that I already had from years ago to make it feel more cozy. I love the simplicity of this chandelier. It’s modern, yet still classic.


I did decorate a little bit for Fall. Mostly pumpkins sprinkled here and there around the house and on the front door, of course. We burned our new Harvest candle from Target during dinner times and at night. It makes the house smell so good!

Lastly, we played outside a lot with our little one! Like I’ve said before, this is my season, and I couldn’t be happier that it’s started!

I am in need/search of some new rain boots. Mine literally had a hole in them, so it was time to throw them away. I run errands in them, garden in them, and simply throw them on to go in and out of the house a lot. I am thinking about this pair or this pair.

 Happy Monday, Friends!

Wish List – Rain Boots

April showers bring May flowers. And, I do love the May flowers. I also like the rain, especially when I don’t have to go anywhere. It’s always nice to have an excuse to stay inside, and get caught up on things around the house that are nagging at me in the back of my head. However, when I was working in an office Monday – Friday you have no choice but to fight the rain battle going in and out of work. I cannot tell you how many pairs of really cute, and I mean cute shoes I ruined wearing into the office during those years. So, a few years ago, I had the bright idea of having a pair of rain boots in the back of my car, and one pair in my office. I also did this with umbrellas. So, no matter when it rained, I was putting my cute shoes in a bag, and putting on a pair of rain boots. One pair is black with white polka dots, and the other pair was solid black (I say was because they didn’t last that long, but they did serve their purpose). They have all kinds of fun prints and colors to choose from, but since I could ride the elevator with the CEO at any moment and time, I figured I should stay conservative on the color/print choice. You just don’t want to draw anymore attention to yourself than you have to in a moment like that one.  While I am confident in my rain boot style, it get’s awkward when you stuff your wide leg dress pants into your rain boots, and you look like you’re about to play golf (mimicking Payne Stewart – a class act by the way) instead of going into work. Some days it looked cute because I was wearing a dress and tights, and some days it just looked plain stupid (you cannot predict/plan when it’s going to rain, neither can the weather man) with certain outfits, but my shoes were safe and sound, and that’s really all that matters.

Today, I thankfully don’t have to worry about running into the CEO anymore, but I still want my rain boots to be cute and go with pretty much any outfit I may have on when it decides to rain.

So, since it’s been well over 10 years with my black and white polka dot rain boots (I paid $19.99 for them in new york) I am in need of a new pair. They are now my “yard rain boots,” that I am currently spreading mulch in on the weekends.

Let me tell you 10 years makes a huge difference in pricing of these rain boots, too. I’d say someone is making a killing on the fact that they have now become a fashion statement. Since they are so pricey these days, rain boots will be on my “birthday wish list.” Below are some of my favorite styles/prints right now. We’ll just have to wait to see which pair gets wrapped up…

 Splash Rain Boot (Women’s)

I really love the olive green/pink combo on these. Pink/Green is one of my favorite color combinations. They would go with anything I wear, which is a plus.

 Joules Welly Print Rain Boots

Navy is classic, add a horse print with a pink accent, and I am sold. I have always loved horses since I was a little girl. Still do.

Women’s Nomad Hurricane Rain Boot

Yellow rain boots

The yellow is just too much fun. Is that such a bad thing? On a rainy day, I wouldn’t mind being reminded that the sun will come out again! Yellow is another favorite color of mine. I get so happy when I see anything yellow.

Women’s LAUREN Ralph Lauren Rossalyn Rain Boots

Plaid rain boots

You can never go wrong with a preppy plaid. I love these too.

Monogrammed Rain Boots with Bows

Seriously? These are darling…and I cannot turn down a monogram or a bow. Could you? I don’t think so…

This will be a tough decision, but thankfully I have a few months to decide! So, see, you can still look adorable rain or shine!
