Shoes and Scents

First things first. You must check out these finds from Target.



The look comfy yet cute. What's not to love?



The winter here last year was SO rainy that I'm thinking of buying these to keep my feet (and pants) dry.

I got another swimsuit yesterday. It's white and pink and it caught my eye at the PX. Ralph Lauren and only $30! I can't pass on a deal like that.

I have to admit that I've been kind of missing home the last few days. I guess a part of me will always think of Oklahoma as home since that's where I lived for the first 23 years of my life, but interestingly enough I've been missing Louisiana lately too. I actually really enjoyed living there and some crawfish etouffee sounds soooo good right now.

I have a random question for you girls. What's your favorite smells? I ask, because it stormed the other night and I LOVE the smell of the air before and after it rains. I also love fresh cut grass, baking bread and lilacs.

As far as perfumes I love: Curve, Nina Ricci, DKNY's Be Delicious and Armani Code.

Funny enough, I've been thinking about perfumes a lot lately! Specifically about deciding on the one I will wear on my wedding day! I know, I'm weird.

Besides perfumes, I LOVE the smell of banana bread and rain. Smelling either of those things make me smile no matter what the time of day!

Good finds! I love wellies, they're prefect for the weather over here ;)

I've always loved the smell of fresh cut grass, my husband things I'm so weird, but I think it smells wonderful!

I just bought Juicy Couture's signature (? I think?) perfume. I also LOOOVE michael kors island and kenneth cole's reaction. mm. :)

I desperately need a pair of galoshes!

Stephanie said...

The air before it rains is the best but also, if you walk past a bush of honeysuckle.. thats great too!

Jessica Lynn said...

I love the scent of fresh roasted green chile. Growing up in New Mexico, the smell just captivates me!

I'm also a sucker for Philosophy's "Falling in Love" perfume. Ah. makes my heart melt!

I bought those pink flip flops last year at Target. They are super comfy. I swore by my reefs, but these totally compete with them. One of my better purchases.

I love the smell of almost anything baking/cooking especially cookies, bread and my mom's pasta sauce. I also can't resist anything coconut smelling - always makes me think of the beach for some reason.

Louisiana misses you too. It told me. :)

I love the smell of a fresh spring rain, the smell of gasoline (I know, weird), and the smell of my parents' house when I walk in--it's a mish-mash of scents, but it always reminds me of home

As for perfume, I only wear Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea. It is my absolute favorite.

Amber said...

nothing beats the smell of fall in New England...there is no way to describe it but it's amazing!

For perfume I have some from origins that has a ginger smell which I think is really yummy.

Oh and good call on the rain boots, I've already worn through a pair here in WA!

I love the CK Mambo scent, but they stopped making it in stores a couple years ago so I have to search like never before to find it now!

Adorable boots. I love anything that smells good enough to eat!

Kelly said...

The smell of burning leaves!! Don't wear purfume so I'll be of no help there!

Young and Hip Mom/Wife said...

I love the smell of my husbands cologne. It is some Michael Jordan thing...it smells wonderful.
The smell of rain, and spring flowers are also on the top of my list.

By the way, great shoe finds at Target!

The Wife said...

Pure Grace by philosophy is my all time fave...

fresh baked bread. its pure heaven.

Mallory said...

I LOVE the smell of rain. I always have.

I also love the smell of Mac's Diesel Fuel for Men aftershave right after he showers... gets me every time.

Dana said...

Barnes & Noble. The combination of fresh coffee and a million books reminds me of college and downtown Raleigh, NC. Acqua di Gio on my husband makes me weak in the knees. On me, I love Armani Mania or Pear Glace body butter from Victoria's Secret.

Teresa said...

Have you tried Armani Diamonds?! It is AMAZING :)

You just made me want to shop lol.

DKNY Be delicious is my signature scent! I'm too tired to list all of my favs... but anything baking, coffee, books, cut grass, the beach... those are some of my favs!

The Mrs. said...

Oh I love flip flops!

I love the smell of cut grass, fresh hay, hubs after a shower, my boys hair after I wash it, and new baby smell. Nothing tops new baby smell.

Jessica said...

Ralph Lauren perfume.. perfect for the summer.

Lilac is my favorite scent. Lavendar being right there behind it. Gasoline, old books, babies hair after a bath, Vanilla, the ocean, my husband's deoderant :)

I love the boots and they will definitely be a good investment. There's not much I hat more than rain-soaked jeans around me feet so I love my trusty rainboots.

I love it when the fireplaces are lit for the first time around Christmas and the smokey smell lingers in the crisp cold air. It's the official start of Christmas time to me. I've got a weird thing for Matt's Degree deodorant. I love how that stuff smells.

I finally found a winner! Calvin Klein's Euphoria. I can't get enough.

I also love:
Horse stables
Fresh cut grass
Burning leaves/fireplaces in the fall
Baking
The woods
The smell of Anthropologie stores. ;)

I love the smell of the dryer right after it finishes drying the clothes, Stonewall's t-shirts after a day at work, and Lil' Mootz's baby smell.

Tania said...

OOO I love the smell after it rains here in AZ! The creosote is so yummy! For perfume, I've been obsessed with VS's Supermodel for about a year now :)
