boots on the beach

Who said that wearing Autumn boots on the beach instead of slippers {flip flops} 

can’t be done?

Okay….well obviously… one wears boots on the beach….because you just won’t fit in…..but last night….in celebration of Autumn…and pumpkin spice latte’s..

apple picking…



knee high socks…

and warm woolen mittens……

{okay…i’m not going to miss the mittens….}

I dug out my Autumn meeting boots…and headed to the beach with a few friends….

a box or two of fine wine…

and my boots.

The only pair of boots i brought with me when we moved here.

With all this talk about Autumn…and apple picking…and first day of boot wearing back in the midwest…i decided that i couldn’t be left behind.

{just because there is not a pumpkin to be found anywhere…}

I opened up the closet this afternoon and dragged out my old yellers….

and decided to introduce them to the sand.

I called up my new found friends and we made a beach date

…..but i passed the pumpkin spice latte on the way for some fine boxed wine……

damn good fine boxed wine…i may add.

I brought out the pumpkin straws that came in one of my care packages….and even though they were meant for the kids…

i thought they would work out better on the beach….slurping down an adult beverage or three.

as you can see….

the wine was good….

but those straws need to be calibrated….because the wine went down really quick.

and the boots…even though they were very much out of their element…

had a great time….

they told me so on the way home.

Boots+pumpkin straws+bikini under dress=Autumn
