Pre-Fall Shoes + High Five for Friday Linkup

This post contains gifted items + affiliate links.

Fall is in the air. . .OK, it’s still too hot out, but it’s in the air from my candles.haha I’m transitioning my wardrobe to fall, and am in that pre-fall stage. I’m starting to wish for more “fall”items, especially shoes.

This week I came home to the best packages from Bearpaw!  The first was the letterboard above.  Y’all, seriously–there couldn’t have been a better letterboard for me.haha I can’t wait to sit it on my new shelf that I’m decorating.

The second package had three new pairs of shoes for pre-fall!  Now, I’ve loved Bearpaw since before I connected with them as an ambassador. I got my first pair in law school. After I about broke my arm when I fell in cheap boots, I got online and ordered my first pair of Bearpaw boots. But Bearpaw is about more than just boots.  They have trendy shoes that are very wearable because they have such comfortable soles. I can wear a pair of their wedge sandals or heeled boots all day without issue.

When you’re shopping for pre-fall shoes, look for dark colors like cognac/dark brown, black, burgundy, and navy.  You can also mix in beige and blush colors for a lighter look.  I snagged a pair of dark brown Noelle wedges, black and white Evelyn slides, and linen Summer tennis shoes.  Beige/cream tennis shoes are the new white tennis shoes, and they go with everything.  Plus, these are lightweight and easy to wear.

Other shoe silhouettes that work for pre-fall are open-toe booties and mules. I’ll link some of my other favorites via the link below.  If you want to snag a pair of Bearpaw shoes, you can use my code BPAMBTF to get 20% off of your purchase:)

    I absolutely love the mini makeover you gave your living room. You truly don’t have to break the bank to freshen up or breathe new life into a space. I really love the gold basket with the throw blankets and the lamp is gorgeous!
