Combat Boots

This week has seriously flown by so far for me. I dont know where the time has went, but I just feel like I am so busy - which I truly dont mind! What have you guys been up to this week so far?

I have some exciting news to share. But before I do, let me introduce to you my new boots. I found them in Noosa - and fell in love. They remind me of the new Jeffrey Campbell boot, except with no heel..which I was tottaly smitten over, but I just cant seem to do heels, so this was a good option! They are perfect for fall and winter, and will do wonders when I go back to Canada! Now onto my exciting news..two things, infact - so which one do I start with? Alright - I'll start with the shop one. Over the past few months I have been thinking about starting a shop that is connected to my blog - to sell my old clothes and some of the things that you have seen me wear on my blog. I have been inspired by fellow bloggers that have started shops, and have been trying to wrap my head around the whole thing - but I think im ready to take the plunge. So be ready, Postcard's from Kate's Closet is coming soon - with some cute things that you have already seen me wear on this blog! Stay tuned! :)

And the second exciting news, this is a really exciting one! A little while ago I was contacted by a local magazine that just started in the city that I live in, and they were wanting me to do a fashion peice for their magazine. Ofcourse I accepted, and wrote an article about how much I love thrift stores. They loved the article and decided they wanted to use it, but then also asked me to write a story about my experience with the ship tour - so I did - and they digged that too so its being published in next months magazine issue! How exciting is that? I was very excited. I will show you all the magazine when it comes out!

Well, this is almost too much excitement for one blog post so im going to tone it down a notch and peace on out of here. I hope that you are having an incredible week so far! x

  7. Ooh, congrats on getting published! How exciting! I'm super jealous. :D Will there be any way for us to read the articles online once they're published? How fun!

    Also, I'm loving those boots -- you can really dress them up or down. I love how you styled them with the socks. You're such a cutie. <3

  8. Being published TWICE? Soon you are going to be a regular at the magazine just you watch. And second the shop idea is brilliant. I was the same way, planning on opening one for the longest time and although it's a lot of work it's totally worth it!!!

    And your comment made me smile. I have no idea where you work but I just pictured a gloomy day at some office and everyone crowded around the screen. I'm sure your job is much more glamorous than that but my imagination ran away with me!
