Is it a boot, a shoe, or a high top,

regardless of how you classify them, the Forsake Patch Hiking Boots are a must-have for any hiker.

.Looking for the best biking boots for beginners?

Buy these boots.

These boots went straight from the box to my suitcase to the trail and did not need to be broken in at ALL.

I wore them on my very FIRST hike (that just happened to be 21+ miles) and can not believe just how comfortable they are.

How to prevent hiking blisters?

Buy these boots.

Combine the Forsake Patch boots with the Darn Tough socks and you will be good-to-go.


The Forsake Patch is an incredibly popular boot (according to my ‘guide’ and the internet) with an impressive number of customer reviews on most major outdoor sites for a relatively small brand.

Where they shine is in water resistance, weight, durability, comfort, and support <- do you really need anything else when you are shopping for a hiking boot?

 If you are looking for a stylish, well-made boot for hikes or urban use, the Forsake Patch is an excellent option and currently on sale!

Why You Need a Fringe Jacket This Fall

Why You Need A Fringe Jacket This Fall


The fringe trend has been all over the catwalks since last year. Nearly every designer added fringe to their collections, whether on jackets, dresses, or handbags. Fringe and cowboy boots were a big trend and are still popular this fall. We’ve seen the Wild West theme not only during Fashion Week and on Instagram but also in the streets <- insert me swaying around Jackson Hole all week in my vintage suede jacket.

The most obvious way to wear fringe is on a suede jacket, paired with jeans and cowboy boots ->

Watch Toy Story 3 if you need some inspiration for your western look.

But you can find fringe jackets in the most varied styles and materials; leather, denim, wool, embellished with studs or logos, you name it <- and I’ve linked them all below.

Second-hand shops are excellent places to get vintage and previously-owned designer jackets.

I snagged my jacket at Womenfolk Jackson Hole -> a collection of timeless, quality vintage and designer consignment clothing sourced and curated in Jackon Hole, Wyoming. If you come to Jackson Hole, this shop is a MUST!


Linking and answering all your Gucci Black GG Tights + CHLOÉ Betty rubber boots questions at the end of this post


The last time I wore a fringe denim jacket was for Outside Lands 2016, and THANK GOD it is still hanging in my closet! This jacket was impossible to find the summer of 2016 and by some act of God, my mom got her hands on an xs the week before my birthday and Outside Lands… I wonder if it still fits?!

And now look at us, here we are. It’s time to shop for outerwear, I’m was already fringe obsessed, but my trip to Wyoming made me want to scream it from the Tetons. I guess that’s mostly because it is a huge part of the street style here and everyone is making it look so cool and appealing.

If you invest in any of the current options — I’m particularly fond of this Stella McCartney splurge, Topshop’s ecru faux fringe dream, and the Danielle Bernstein x Macy’s, Faux-Suede Fringe Jacket, — you’ll be really making a statement. So much so that the rest of your outfit accouterments will barely require any attention at all. I see no better reason to hop on the bandwagon.



Gucci Black GG Tights – run slightly big | I own them in a medium and large and prefer the medium

The $38 Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag I Can’t Stop Wearing



Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag

If you follow me over on Instagram you know that this bag is HIGHLY featured in my daily mirror selfie #OOTDs. I even call it my pandemic bag! Why? Because it’s all I’ve been wearing for the last six months! It coordinates well with my sweatsuit lifestyle and it holds all the essentials: phone, wallet, keys, mask, and hand sanitizer.

I have also pretty much-eliminated all bags in my wardrobe that are not hands free and can not be easily worn when out in public. I find that by wearing the belt bag out I am touching less when I am out and having to wipe down less when I get home! I usually wear it around my waist, but if you are feeling extra trendy you can easily wear it across your chest as a crossbody.

This bag as been a top seller for me and for Lululemon for a REASON! It is light, easy to wear, functional, and very well priced for Lululemon.

New Spanx Leather-Like Product Review


If you are new around here you should know that I  haven’t met a Spanx product that I didn’t absolutely love…yet.

The products work with my curves, make me feel good, and are easy to style into my everyday wardrobe.


leather-like ankle skinny pant | wearing a medium regular


The 5-pocket styling is what did it for me with the skinny pant. They feel like a legging (so comfortable) but look like a real pair of leather pants. The hidden shaping panel flattens and tones your tummy I mean scroll up and look at the first photo. I am one confident curvy lady in these pants.

leather-like jogger | wearing a size medium


I hate to play favorites…but these are my FAVORITE of the new styles. They really look and feel like leather (like the skinny), but are flattering in a relaxed/effortless way. These WILL be a staple in my wardrobe.

This style does run big, but not big enough to make me want to size down to a size small. I like that they are bigger and sit a bit higher on my waist. I have been styling them with my SKIMS bodysuits and could not feel more confident in them!

Faux Patent Leather Leggings

faux patent leather leggings | wearing a size medium regular


Have you ever seen the episode of Friends when Ross is struggling to put on his leather pants in the bathroom?

That was me the first time I put them on. I’m not going to sugarcoat it. It took me a solid 20 minutes to get these leggings on the first time I wore them. It was a FULL workout and I walked out of the house a sweaty mess!

I was also hesitant to like these leggings because I owned the Commando version of these leggings and they quickly got a hole in them after one wear however, my Forever 21 version of these leggings lasted forever!

So after a couple of wears, here is my final review ->

You NEED to break them in. They are tight plastic pants, but once you get them on they are 100% worth it. I originally questioned if I needed to size up to a large with this style, but once you break them in you are good to go in your usual Spanx size. These pants are NOT easy to wear, but the hidden contoured waistband makes them another flattering legging option in my closet.

No center-seam = more camel toe

Hot Tip: Like all patent leather, you may experience some squeakiness during wear. If this occurs, apply lotion or oil to the outside of the legging at the inner thighs <- I didn’t need to do this. I found that once I worked them in the squeaking went away and I was moving and shaking.

I will wear these leggings because I’m Kat and Spanx sent them to me for free. If you are going to invest in any of the new styles head straight to the leather-like joggers and don’t look back.
