This quite obviously became the week of the "bootie" here on b & b and I'm not ashamed. There is nothing I fall for more than the perfect pair of booties to wear to every fall festival, to every pumpkin patch, and to crunch some leaves with. In years past I scoured through every shoe display to find a few pairs. Now they're everywhere and just in time for fall. Now the weather is slowly cooling down and feeling more fall like here in New Jersey but it's still not tights weather yet. So I decided to just go for it and brave some bare legs with my booties. I love how it added a little oomph to an otherwise perfectly lady-like look. I can't wait to wear this out for Sunday brunch.

I won't be going to Sunday brunch or anywhere else this weekend because, in case you haven't heard, the Pope is coming to Philadelphia. Which is very exciting for the city but will be causing all sorts of congestion and traffic problems in our area. I've resigned myself to a quiet weekend around the house and I'm kind of looking forward to it. As much as I love being out and about, sometimes you just need a slow, easy weekend to get yourself together. Because, well, once October starts easy weekends will be few and far between!
