Fashion Friday - boots & stripes

Happy Friday everyone!  So glad the weekend is upon us!  

 Sharing my favorite pair of boots this season!  Woot Woot!  :)  Nothing like a great pair of boots.  I bought these in the early Fall at Nordstroms (for a sweet deal!) and I have LIVED in them ever since.  I love them because they have a small flat heel  so they give me a little height (which I so need!) but they are still comfortable and perfect for every day running around (unlike most of my other boots that look good but are too high heeled for chasing my little monkey around).  I also love the Taupe color.  They go with everything!    

Here are a few tops I've worn with these boots lately - all stripes!  Seems I'm going through a bit of a stripe phase lately.    

The striped top under this vest I bought at The Limited.  It's fitted and comfortable and the perfect thing to wear underneath vests or jackets or cardigans.

I bought this simple top last Spring at Forever 21 for $12.  I kid you not!  And I have decided it is the perfect sleeve length for San Diego weather.  Not too hot, not too cold.  I hope I can pick up a few more similar tops this Spring because it has become "that top."  
You know the one.  
The one you just want to wear every. single. day.  

 I wear it with a with tank and boots in the Fall/Winter - sandals in the Spring/Summer.  

 You can't tell in this picture, but my boots match this striped sweater perfectly.

And a quick pic I snapped a few nights ago on my way to dinner with friends.  My big camera usually hides my face so I didn't quite know what to do with my face showing in this picture.  Do I smile at myself in the mirror like a dork?  Or try to look serious like I know what I'm doing?  After a few pics attempting to be serious I started laughing at myself so a smile won in the end.  :)

A lot of rain is coming our way tomorrow (I can hear it picking up outside right now!) so my plan is to hole up in my house in comfy sweats and organize something.  And drink hot chocolate.  And then organize something else.  

Can't wait.  :)

Enjoy your weekend friends!

Very cute! It seems you've been more drawn to solid tops. Stripes look great on you! Not everyone can wear stripes and it's fun to step "outside the box" with our clothing styles.

Ooops, that last comment was me but I was signed in under my personal blog so I deleted it. Anyway, I'm so glad you are doing Fashion Fridays again. They are fun and are a serious help for me since I am very challenged in the fashion dept ;)

Hi Erin,
I have been reading your blog for a few months and love it! We have so much in common... my name is Erin too and I love my kids, family, house, decorating and, of course, organizing!! You and your family are adorable and seem like wonderful people. :)
I really love this pair of boots (gotta love Nordstrom) and was also wondering what brand they are?!
Well, I look forward to your continued posts and hope you have a wonderful day! :)

Like that Forever 21 top. I usually don't find things there - but I often see others sporting cute things they've found at that store. I'll have to give it another whirl. Glad to see Fashion Friday back. : )
