White Ankle Boots

For the last 2 years I’ve compiled a list of items into a must have list. A list filled with pieces I desperately want in my wardrobe. Found one of these items at my local Marshall’s store. Ladies, I give you white ankle boots! You may be saying to yourself “Girl, bye” but I personally love a white shoe. Yes, they get a bad rap. Yes, many people consider them a huge fashion mistake. But guess what? I don’t care.  Having a white pump in my arsenal already, just needed to build up my collection. Now that I have white ankle boots the possibilities are endless.

I purchased these months ago right as we transitioned from spring into summer. But don’t let that fool you, these boots can easily be worn in the fall and winter months. Paired with denim, leather pants, layered with tights and shorts, or even in place of stilettos with a dress. I can’t wait to see what I come up with this winter. It’s easy to be scared off by the bright color. Especially during a season when most people naturally gravitate to dark hues. However, I’d love to challenge myself to step outside the box. To use these as a new neutral.

Since winter is around the corner I decided to break in these boots woth a dress while there’s still time. A lovely compliment for my footwear, the fabric on this plaid dress is heavier than it looks. Not something I’d wear during the summer but perfect for autumn. Bell sleeves add a flirtatious vibe to an otherwise straightforward piece. Being so coordinated with my accessories was a big risk. It may seem too matchy-matchy but I felt it was retro. Just enough hardware to make it edgy and not totally “Stepford”. I’m curious, would you rock a white boot? Let me know below!

Sequin Knits + Leather Jeans

Don’t be fooled, basic is not always a bad thing. Take today’s outfit for instance. Originally, I’d planned to shoot this look with a black fur vest but realized I’d forgotten the vest when hubbs and I reached our location.

Do I skip the shoot and just head to work or do I shoot regardless and remain authentic? I decided to shoot as planned and I’m so glad I did. While the fur vest would’ve added a little drama to this look, I improvised by substituting my hat and scarf.

The sequins on my knitwear was the perfect compliment to my rhinestone studded ankle boots. These eye catching accessories pop against the plain white turtleneck and black leather jeans. By adding some mirrored shades and a fun purse I’m anything but ordinary.

Next time you’re feeling drab add your favorite accessory and slay!

Wool Cardigan + Gray Ankle Boots

Happy Friday! Hope all is well with you, I’ve had a busy week full of budget setting and venue hunting in preparation for the big day. Let me tell you ladies, it just got REAL, lol!

I’ve had six weeks of sheer shock and “omg am I really engaged” moments and now I’ve crossed over into “yo…what’s the budget for this jawn”. Needless to say, I will keep you all posted during the process.

So umm…. This March weather? Like, I just can’t you guys. One day it’s 70 degrees and sunny, the next it’s 40 and raining. Gotta love spring right?

Anyways, today’s look is my remedy for such sporadic weather. It tends to be chilly in the early morning and evening but warm throughout the afternoon.

So I decided to rock a heavy cardigan and some ankle boots to keep me warm…add some skinnies and I’m weekend ready. Have a great one loves, see you next week, XO!
