Best thing about the fall? Boots! I'm a warm weather girl but that's the one consolation prize I can be happy about with the colder weather coming. My favorite pair of boots are these Jane Strappy's from Frye ($398) and I've had them for 3 years now and wear them regularly. I have another dark brown pair that I wear from LandsEnd.com that is … [Read more...]

I have always steered clear because I'm a former vegetarian who doesn't eat a ton of meat so it didn't seem like a good fit … [Read more...]
