When I got these boots I wasn’t quite sure how to wear them. And indeed, they sat untouched in my closet for months. But, paired with my favorite cropped jeans, their thick heel made them the perfect shoes for a stroll around the neighborhood this weekend. { Insert “these boots were made for walking” joke here }

Yesterday I told you about the event that I was throwing for BHLDN and I wanted to show you a few photos from the actual day. I must say, if I were saying I Do, which I’m not as of this moment, then I would surely be doing so surrounded by this lovely new line. The whole day was like a fairy tale, especially when I got an entire plate of chocolate macaroons all to myself.
