Notice anything different?


After months (okay, maybe even a year) of making excuses, I finally bit the bullet and switched from Squarespace to WordPress. I KNEW it would be the better option for me in the long run, but I had a million and one reasons why I just couldn’t make the switch (#1 reason being laziness). A HUGE shoutout to Jess and Blair from Blogging For Keeps. Without Jess, I probably would have quit 100 times in the past few weeks. If you’re looking to start a blog, you need to start with BFK. They cover every topic you could possibly imagine in relation to blogging, and they are so helpful whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned blogger looking to take your site to the next level. I have nothing but good things to say about Jess & Blair, so please do check out their incredible blogging tips!

The Clydescope doesn’t look that much different, but from the back end it’s a whole new ballgame. I have a to-do list that’s a mile long and I’m still working out a few technical kinks on the new site, but YAY WORDPRESS! Okay, and I will most definitely fiddle with the design for the next little while. But I am SO happy that I finally made the switch; on to bigger and better things!

…and also on to the blog post!

I decided to step outside of my comfort zone with these Geox booties. They aren’t THAT wacky, but I’m toeing the line of “different for Carly.” I decided to go with a style that I’m comfortable with, but in a colour that I wouldn’t normally choose: enter the gorgeous burgundy Lia boots by Geox. I swear these boots change colour every day; sometimes they look brown, other times a deep oxblood, and sometimes they are a true burgundy. I’m in love with the buckle detailing as well as the patent leather on the heels. My Geox are absolutely stunning for fall- they add a little something extra to a plain black outfit, and also look put together and chic with jeans.

Perfect burgundy boots combined with cool temperatures and gorgeous falling leaves are finally making it feel like fall!
