never enough

{image via Madewell}

One would think after touching, coloring, staring, organizing and researching shoes all day everyday I would tire of them. Nope not the case. It actually creates an even stronger desire to shop for more shoes! With Fall approaching I can not get enough of all the boots. I sure would like to purchase a few more pairs... but being that I already have way too many instead I will lust after them. I really like the suede on this boot and the versatility along with the wooden heel. Love them!

Frugal Finds {leggings}

I currently live on a budget {hubs and I are saving for something so very near & dear to us} so anytime I come across something affordable I am thrilled. Today while walking through Wallie World {aka Walmart} a co-worker and I decided to check out the apparel. They actually had something I wanted! These stone washed leggings are from the Miley Cyrus Max Azria x Walmart collection and are $8. Super soft & stretchy. They fit nice n tight {just how I like em} but you can breath in them.

Bargain hunting is on my favorite things to do. I came across this necklace while in NYC. It is unique and funky. Find it here on sale! Madewell has been a must shop store every time I am in the city. LOVE this store!


I have been loving vintage vests of all shapes, patterns and materials. When I was downloading these images I realized how random it is that these photos were taken in different weeks but at the same location... my favorite sushi shop! I eat here at least once a week (if not more). In the top photo bu (my hubby) came to meet for lunch hour and in the bottom photo we were on a double date this weekend with a girl friend from high school.
