This is what I wore for a morning/early afternoon of walking around Olde Mystic Village with Christian, my sister and her boyfriend. These boots are one of my favorite every day shoes. Ever since I bought them in 2014 they have been in constant rotation. So much so that I actually wore them out and bought a second pair. I still have the original and will wear those when I want comfortable shoes but they might get dirty/etc. 


I was recently introduced to PowerStep insoles and learned that, because of my high arches, I may need supination insoles for high arches to make walking more comfortable and reduce the amount of wear on the outer soles of my shoes. I bought a couple pairs of supination insoles to try out and see if they help me walk better and stop me from putting extra pressure on the heel of my foot. I chose the "PowerStep Bridge Adaptable Arch Supporting Insoles with Energize Foam" and then the "SlenderFit 3/4 Insoles" to wear with "fashion" shoes.



I always enjoy walking around the shopping center, there's new things to see every time! We perused a few shops but my favorites are always the kitchen related stores. Christian and I had a ball tasting olive oils at Extra Virgin and honey at Sticky Situations. We ended up splurging and buying 4 different honeys - orange blossom (our favorite,) rosemary and blackberry honey plus tangy citrus honey mustard. We couldn't leave without eating so we grabbed some donuts from Deviant Donuts and pizza at Mango's Wood Fired Pizza.


Back to the supination insoles - I took a photo of both pairs of boots side by side and you can definitely tell by looking at the older pair that I walk on the outside of my feet. I'm excited to see how long these boots last now that I have insoles to correct my step.  Unfortunately, the larger insoles I bought didn't fit into the boots as intended so I used the SlenderFit instead. Those easily fit in a lot of my thinner width shoes so I'll be swapping them between pairs as I need. The Energize Foam supination insoles will now live in my favorite Winter boots that were my Grandmother's. I've been meaning to get insoles for them for a while so that was a happy accident!

A simple, yet fun look thanks to my embellished sweater. Just don't hug me while I'm wearing it or you may get stabbed! Unfortunately I'm not completely happy with how this look photographed. The velvet jeans don't look good with the ankle boots. I think I need to wear them with either regular flats or heels, but not flat boots.

If you follow me on  Instagram, you'll have seen that I was in Montreal last week. My husband's cousin and his wife invited us to join them for a quick Fall trip. On one of the rainier days (we had multiple) we headed to the BioSphere, an interactive museum dedicated to the environment. I had really wanted to go to the Biodôme but it's closed through Summer 2019. Such a shame! The BioSphere was pretty cool, even though the rain made it hard to view one of the cooler parts of the museum. Christian absolutely loved it because he's a sucker for science and being environmentally friendly (we'll eventually get solar panels for our house.)

I had different shoes in mind for this outfit but the weather made me wear my trusty rain boots.

On Monday I shared the details of the LIQUID GOLD event I attended at Red Bee's Honey House Barn with Connecticut Blogger Babes. Now here's what I wore to keep warm while learning all about honey! We were indoors for the event but it was held in a barn so we had to make sure to dress warmly. I doubled up on sweaters (with a bodysuit underneath) and wore tights under my jeans to stay extra warm. I topped it off with the cute hat I bought in London earlier this year and my trusty Winter boots.

Cardigan: Burberry Brit (Net-a-Porter), Sweater: Banjo + Matilda 'Trinket' sweater (The Outnet), Jeans: Everlane "The High-Rise Skinny Jean" in Mid-Blue, Boots: Grandma's,  Bag: Emm Kuo 'Calle Bahia' (Roundabout Resale), Hat: bought in London
