Comfortably stepping into fall

White summer eyelet still intact, I'm willing to dip a toe into the autumn waters with these supple brown leather booties from Vionic.

There is much to love about the 'Upton' ankle boot; available in three colors of genuine leather, I chose the java which has more of a mahogany look in person than the chestnut it's depicted in on the site. The heel height is very walkable at just over two inches, and most importantly, they feature an Orthaheel removable orthotic insert, providing arch support that is lacking from most shoes.

They aren't unreasonably priced at $160, and cater to sizes from 5 to 11, including wide with options.

Last year my search for the perfect black bootie started in September and ended in January, with countless tried and failed boots in-between. This year my search for the perfect brown bootie has started and ended with this option from Vionic.

End of August

I love that August has 31 days. I feel like that extra day makes a big difference somehow, as hard as it is to ignore that summer is reaching it's end, I'm not quite done with it yet.

Over the weekend I had a blogger lunch date with a couple of my favorite ladies and also made it to Lake Compounce, on their very last day of summer operation. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right? Now that I've gotten my fill of roller coasters and flying swings I'm planning for the beach and intend on taking advantage of the summer temps which the weathermen have scheduled for the week ahead.

Sure, fall fashion is rolling out, and it's hard to ignore the draw; seasonal changes in retail make every store feel brand new again. Plus even if it's too soon to wear it, it's not too soon to shop for it! (Yes, tomorrow's post will be centered on Fall, but I'm not fully making the switch, you will be seeing so much more summer from me yet!)

Harbor act to follow

I've saved my favorite look of this week for last. I think I've been wanting to wear these pieces together since Memorial Day and now here we are, nearly at Labor Day. The summer just goes in the blink of an eye.

Sidewalk sale dress

There is always room for another dress. I think that might be my motto. Or that might just apply to everything, as long as I love it and the price is right. Which it was on this little scalloped shift dress I picked up at a sidewalk sale for $10.

Dock walk

Hallmarks of a perfect summer dress: easy to wear, comfortable yet flattering, bright fun color.

Add in my straw tote with the poms that make it look like a hundred bucks, the jeweled sandals that I can't seem to stop wearing, and of course Chloe, who as usual, is more concerned with getting her walk than posing for photos, and you've got my go-to summer look. More of the same tomorrow.
