Best Boots and Booties For Fall - Under $50

Went on a bootie binge on Monday (doesn't everyone do that on Monday?) and decided to do a round up here for you guys. I got some SERIOUS steals at good ol Tarjay, where they are having BOGO 50% off. On top of that, I found a pair of white heeled booties on clearance for $10. I walked out of there with 3 pairs for $57 and have never felt so alive!!

I have been planning on doing a bootie round up for a while now, featuring all the best booties I've seen for Fall, but honestly... Target is killing the game right now and has a lot of the designer styles for super cheap, so...I decided to share all of them. FYI...I bought four of the pairs on this list. OOPS!

These Are The Best Boots and Booties for Fall Under $50!
Best Booties and Boots for Fall Under $50

White Booties - These are just as dreamy in person, as they look online and SO comfortable. The white is more of a cream, and can be worn with jeans, leather, and skirts for fall. Best of all, they are only $34.99, which is such a steal for the quality! Fit is TTS and also come in other colors.

Scrunch Boot - It's like...are we really moving away from OTK boots or what? These scrunch boots are definitely all the rage this season. I have to admit, I was reluctant to jump on board, but I am officially here for it. I've seen styles ranging with the $150-$200 range, but these are under $40. I typically wear a 9.5-10 and I purchased the 10 in these, at the 9.5's were too tight. If you're in between sizes, size up. They come in 3 colors.

Taupe Western Bootie - The western trend is all the rage for fall 2018, and these booties fit the bill to keep you on trend without breaking the budget. I didn't buy these (the jury is still out for me on if I'll partake in the trend), but these are a super cute option if you're into it.

Cut Out Cognac Bootie - You would never believe by looking at them, but these babies are only $25! (Say what?) They fit TTS despite online reviews, but I have a pretty slender foot. I wore them the only night, and they did kind of run the top of my foot. I'll have to figure out how to prevent that in the future (have any tips?), but for $25...totally worth it.

Hiker Boot - Love the hiker boot trend that has taken the fashion world by storm, but can live without the Marc Fisher price tag? Me too. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Marc Fisher, but when I can find a knock off for a fraction of the price...I'm in! When I found these faux lined hiker boot knock offs, I squealed a little. I mean...under $40? Sign me up! Target has a super black and gray style here, too.

Remember, Target has buy one get one 50% off right now, so you could stock up on all your fall/winter boots for super cheap right now. I mean...they are practically giving stuff away!

Easy To Recreate Fall Work Outfit - With Items You Probably Already Own

It’s true. I have a shopping problem. (Surprise, surprise.) But honestly, I’ve really seen the value in investing in classic and interchangeable basics, lately. Making sure I have pieces that I can easily mix and match, and wear time and time again. More-so, I have loved re-evaluating my closet and shedding the items I really don’t want or need, as well as recreating outfits from pieces I love.

This is one of those outfits. 
Easy To Recreate Work Outfit
I’m still working on creating my capsule wardrobe post for you guys. (It’s a ton of work!) But I can tell you that every closet needs these three items: black work pants that you love, a good chambray shirt, and an oversized blazer.

These three items can be mixed and matched in more ways than I could even think up. But this chic office look, might be my favorite. It says, “Hi. I’m a professional. But wanna grab a glass of wine after 5?” Haha OK, I don’t know if it says that. But whatev. Either way, it’s an easy to recreate work outfit with items you probably already have in your closet.

All of these pieces have been in my closet for ages, but I’ve found some super similar styles and linked to them below. The pants are an exact match and are currently 40% with code BRGET40.

Fall Reflections

It's starting to feel like fall in more ways than just the turning leaves. Much like the turning of each year, I like to set an intention, as each season changes. I think our bodies move in ways much like the seasons. Spring bring forward new beginnings and the promise of all the goodness Summer has to offer, while Winter brings needed stillness that is always welcomed. Fall prepares us for this coming stillness, and reminds us to let go.
I'm not sure of what you need to let go of.
To me, this season is usually about letting go of my packed schedule. To recharge. To be ok with sitting with myself in the stillness and pressing into the good and holy. To spend more time saying "I'll be there" than "I already have plans". To curl on the couch in the stillness of the night, and not be checking off the next task on the to do list. To sit around the table and break bread with good friends - and good wine.
Welcome fall. I've missed you.

Fall Work Outfit: Skirt + Sweater

I've received a lot of requests from you guys to share work outfits. It's right up there next in line with my requests to create outfits with cozy basics. It seems you guys are just like me and want to look professional by day,  and cute and comfy AF off duty. I get it, girl.

I picked up this skirt on a recent online shopping binge to H&M and absolutely love it for a fall work outfit. It's got a structured waist, but loose fitting (without being bulky) and the perfect length to make it super work appropriate - which is always a huge concern of mine. (There is nothing worse than bending over with fear of showing the goods - am I right?)
Another reason I love this skirt is for its versatility. You can wear it with a white button-up shirt, tucked in, or with any one of your favorite sweaters french tucked in the front.
Skirt and Sweater Work Outfit for Fall
This sweater is a steal for fall, by the way. It's so soft and lightweight,  only $19, and comes in 7 colors. It's such great basic for fall! However, I did find while shooting that it's a little too long in the back to pair with this skirt. I ended up wearing this skirt to work yesterday and pairing it with this cropped Leith sweater I picked up in several colors at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I Tried Sculpsure And Here's What Happened

Let's just start by saying I've always struggled with my love handles. Blame it on my affection for sweet treats and wine, or blame it on genetics...I'm not really sure. Either way, it's been my problem area, and a point of insecurity for me for my entire life. I am pretty diligent with my workouts, and keep a well-balanced diet. Still, no matter how hard I tried to shed them, the love handles just stayed. 

I had always heard about body sculpting and had always been curious about if it really worked or not,  but it's a bit of an investment, so I never took the plunge. Like any of us, I really wanted to know that something would work before making that kind of purchase. So when SculptMed Medical Spa in Denver reached out to me about collaborating on one of their medical spa services, I jumped at the opportunity to try body sculpting
Sculpsure Results
Like with anything I write about on here, I want you guys to feel like you can trust my word and that you can lean on me as a resource if you are considering anything from what's the best red lipstick to wear or what microblading is like, and now...my results with Sculpure. It makes me so happy that I have the privilege of trying things like this so that I can be a trustworthy resource to you guys! 

Here's what I learned about body sculpting through my experience and my results. 
CoolSculpting Denver
When it comes to body sculpting, I'm sure many of you have heard about CoolSculpting - the word has become synonymous with body sculpting (kind of like we just say "google" when we talk about searching something on the internet, when there are obviously many other search engine options). ScultpMed actually offers a different body sculpting option called SculpSure, which is much better than CoolScuplting IMO. 

Here's why:

1. Both Cool Sculpting and SculpSure use extreme temperature to change/reduce fat cells, but SculpSure uses heat instead of cold. I've heard when you get done with a Coolsculpting procedure, your skin and fat can feel like an ice block! No thank you! Since SculpSure uses heat, you don't feel a thing when you are done and are back to life as normal.

2. With Coolsculpting, the device is bascially just one big pad that doesn't have the ability to form around your problem area. Sculpsure has several different device pads that can completely conform to you target area, giving you optimal results.

So...I'm sure you guys are dying to know...what were my results? 
Sculpsure Before and After
While I'm not going to share before and afters I can 100% with confidence tell you that I saw great improvement in my stubborn fat around my love handles! I did two treatments, but began to see results a few weeks after the first one. (These photos were taken in San Diego about 5 weeks after my first treatment fyi.)

 I've always felt SO uncomfortable in bikinis because of my love handles. They always seem to pinch and poke in just the right spot, but since getting Sculpsure at SculptMed done, I can totally see an improvement. I wish I would have taken exact measurements before and after, but I can tell you that I for sure know, feel and see a difference. My love handles don't bulge out as bad (or hardly at all) anymore and I even see the difference when I wear form-fitting dresses that I otherwise had to wear Spanx with before.

Sculpsure was 100% non-invasive and effective in removing a large portion of my love handles (or "flanks", as they call them). The whole procedure took about an hour and was fairly comfortable to endure. The device is applying extreme heat to the area, so you can expect it to feel a little uncomfortable at times, but it cycles through from hot to cool to give you a break, so it's totally bearable.

If you are considering body sculpting, I can't recommend SculpSure enough. And, if you are in the Denver area, you have got to to SculptMed medical spa in Denver. They offer a full range of services to include everything from SculpSure to Microblading, Botox and Laser Hair Removal - something I'm thinking of trying out next. SculptMed is graciously offering my readers 20% off all services, if you mention me when booking (the only exclusions to this are injectables and microblading.) You have definitely got to take advantage of this deal!

SculptMed offered me services in exchange for my review. As always, all opinions are my own.
