Wednesday coffee: Fall boots

August 20, 2014

Shop my favorite places for fall boots!
Macys
Nordstrom
Piperlime
DSW
Dillards 

With fall approaching us so very fast it's time to start focusing on all the new trends and how to pull those into our personal everyday style. Fall is my favorite time of year I love wearing boots and heavy knits all you need to add is a starbucks salted caramel which comes back in september (can we take a moment to celebrate)!
  But with all seriousness I made this post to show some styles that i'm really digging for fall, I know distressed leather and the traditional horse riding boot is really popular with my generation (18 and college student). But if you look at those adorable peep toe Steve madden booties over in the fat left which are available on Piperlime right now for a steal of $100. Another thing I am really loving is the Hunter Rain boots at first I wasn't too sure if these were going to be something that I would actually wear. But after seeing that Pink Peonies had about 5 pairs, and then saw them in some lookbooks I re thought the whole rain boot thing. As for my last favorite trend it has to be the whole Eggplant purple color, it's a great fall color I love it end of story period. What are some of your favorite boot trends for fall??

     As always thank you so much for taking time out to read this. I hope you all are having a fabulous day so far!

Casual Friday

August 18, 2014


On friday's patches and I go to starbucks together and I get him a little sweet treat! He always likes
to do some selfies to send to his mommy!

I always love love love to go out and buy fresh flowers and then make arrangements
and put them throughout the house. It has to be one of my favorite things and they
last so long! (well because I usually put them in direct sunlight)

This day I it was so cold and I hate being cold especially in AUGUST! So I was feeling blue
and hello I love to rock my Jack Rodgers! 

When Fridays come and I am oh so lucky enough that I don't have to work. I enjoy getting to make flower arrangements or cleaning some part of my house or even getting to spend some time with my poochie (patches or #sirpatchesfox). So on this Monday I really wanted to post some of the things that I do on an typical Friday though pictures. I even threw in a little ootd, it has been do chilly here at home so I'm all about fresh and summerish even though it's so cold!
As always thank you so very much for reading!

What's in my Carry-on bag?

August 4, 2014



Well Hello guy's I have missed you all so much I have been pretty busy the last week in half. When traveling comes around and then family thing's on top of that, it makes it really hard to get back to blogging and doing some of the thing's I truly love!

With that being said your probably slightly wondering about my new look to my blog! Exciting news i'm working on finally giving the look I want and the image I want to Coffee and a Blonde. This is who I am and i'm excited to represent me through my site. 

Sooooo Enough of that and more to the "what is in my Carry-on bag", I have been wanting to show you the things I take with me on long train or car rides. And some of my favorite snacks. This bag is a oldie but oh so goodie from Rebecca Minkoff, and not to mention it held all these things you see here. Unfortunately it is not sold anymore so sad! When it comes to traveling I have to have snacks fishies are my fav and so are roasted almonds total yes. Now I always have a small little bag with ibuprofen a lip balm a nail file etc.  Of course you have to have some form of entertainment for those long trips I love Instyle and a good teen vogue and always my laptop! When it comes to traveling always pack smart and be prepared for however many hours the trip may be! Thank you so much for reading and happy happy Monday!!!
