FALLing for Shoes.

Whether I'm ready or not, fall is coming! I am not quite ready to put away my summer sandals, bright nail polish, and trusty flip flops. Luckily, we will start the off-season in Tennessee, so I can look forward to warmer temperatures for at least another month or so! However, between all the September issues of magazines, blog posts, and NY Fashion Week, I've been getting a little excited about the fall weather! I have already made a few fall/winter purchases, but I will wait until it truly starts getting cooler before I bring those babies out! I stumbled on this Glamour article titled "52 Cute Summer to Fall Shoes Under $150." I loved the article and the shoes featured in it! I want about half of the shoes they featured, ha! Check out the article, for sure, to get some ideas. Here were some of my favorites:

LOVE these! I have these that look a lot like them & wear them all the time!

Old Navy boots for only $35! They come in 2 colors! LOVE!

Nude Sam Edelman pumps. Classic.

Target pumps for $25! 
A friend got these for me in black. They also come in red.
They are very good looking & look like a much more expensive shoe! 
This is a great buy!

I absolutely love this one! Should I order it??
Steve Madden has a similar one, too.

Been loving these Jessica Simpson shoes since I saw her wearing them in a mag.
They come in several different colors.

These are fab! Rachel Roy sandals.
Or you can find them here for cheaper!

Comes in 3 different colors.

Topshop Wedges in a perfect-for-fall shade!

Speaking of fall, here are some recipes I plan on making once the temps drop...

Red Wine Chocolate Cake (two of my fave things in ONE dessert?!? yes please!)
Black Bean & Sweet Potato Chili
Chicken Pot Pie
Baked Oatmeal with Fruit (using fall flavors and fruits)
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
Fig Blue Cheese Appetizer Tarts (these are a MUST make for fall get-togethers or tailgating)***
Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Lasagna (My uncle made this for me last year, and it was -by far- the best I've EVER had! Try this one for your husband and family!)***
Pumpkin French Toast Stuffed with Blackberry Caramel Mascarpone
A Good Ol' Chocolate Cake 
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Mini Pumpkin Whoppie Pies
Classic Chili w/a few twists (Chris and I loveeeee to make chili & cornbread!)

What fall recipes do YOU like cooking when the leaves start to fall?


  1. love thoses red wedges. and i can't wait to make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, since i have finally accepted that fall has arrived and summer has left. i love fall, but it was a long winter, so i'll miss summer!

  2. I really love the Sam Edelman leopard shoes! They are so hott!

  3. I noticed your comment beside the link to the Chili recipe and remembered the time we met the two of you at the Tin Roof in Nashville. You were both too stuffed to eat ( well Chris managed a little lol ) because you'd just made Chili and Corn Bread :).

  4. Those Sam Edelman pumps are so classic and chic, and I love the Rachel Roys! Gorgeous.

  5. Those Jessica Simpson shoes are so hot. I'm in the market for a velvety jewel toned shoe with a chunky heal/platform look. I really like the Michael Kors sandals as well.

    In the fall I love to make salads with apples and I like to make chili or chicken tortilla soup. I love butternut squash too even though I eat too much of it and feel full for 24 hours afterward.

  6. Great looking shoes,in Love with the Jessica Simpson's and leopard flat. And yummy sounding food.

  7. i personally can't wait for winter! itching to start piling on the layers :)

    the shoes are all great, i'm a big shoe addict, so all work for me, lol.

    hmm, gotta think of winter recipes... yours sounds yummy!
