I’m counting down until the days when I get to raid San Francisco’s Madewell and J.Crew. It’s not until September and I’m a little worried that things will be picked over since the F/W collection is already on the floor. 
First on my must-have list is this suede desert boot, a versatile seasonless every day shoe (if you don’t count the super rainy Vancouver days). Reminds me a lot of Isabel Marant’s crazy expensive and difficult to find “Dicker” boot. But for a fraction of the price. 
$188 US at Madewell (also in black and rusty red).
PS. Have you heard that J.Crew is coming to Vancouver next year? That means Madewell will make its appearance eventually too. It’s inevitable!
