The last couple of weeks I have been seeing booties all over blogsphere. Everyone is excited about sales that focus on fall fashion. I took a different route, however. I looked at what was new, then looked in my closet and found things that provided the same vibe. I also went to one of my favorite sights, Nordstrom Rack, because I know a secret (well maybe it's not a secret) but many things last season that I thought I had to have but decided not to get, are being sold this season for 50% -75% off. Wait until you see my finds! I will put them on my new page called, Northwest Mountain Style Boutique (here or top of page)! But first, it looks like I have some splainin (a real word?) to do with this outfit.
It appears we are not going to have much of a real summer here in the northwest mountains of Idaho. At the very least it is going to be a short one. So far we have only had a handful of days where it even reached 80 degrees. Our nights are so cool still that the heat kicks on in the early mornings. I am not complaining, I actually have grown to love our climate and I get to wear things like this in the middle of the summer. I got this midi skirt in the early spring. This type of skirt is not at all flattering for my body type, but I don't care, it is flowy (not sure a word), fun and versatile. I envisioned country life (mine) and thought a shirt tied at the waist would be fun and to countrify (again, not a word), it even more, I put on booties! My straw bag is a thrift find from last year that I just adore. It says vacation and is in perfect shape. Score! I am holding my skirt up for several reasons. One, I wanted to show my booties, two, I wanted to show the cute skirt lining and three, I knew it was probably something a mature women shouldn't do! My mom, always said, "You can't tell Cheryl anything!"
Thanks for stopping by!

My outfit is made up of items that are no longer available but these are similar. That shirt is perfect and that skirt is cuter than the one I have. I have wanted the first pair of booties for a long time (crazy about them) and the other pair would be so cute. All the straw bags are just too cute!
