Kitten Heels // Round Minaudière
With the change of the seasons a quick way to update your wardrobe is with a few new statement pieces – a pair of shiny new kicks, a chic structured bag, or a new set of shades. (Or in my case, all the above!)
Little white ankle boots have been on my “list.” When I stumbled across these faux patent ankles boots at Zara, (and for a good price) I knew they were going to be my favorite newbies for fall. Bight white pops against the moody autumn skies and looks so cool with everything - dresses, jeans, and skirts. Be warned - they run a little small. I wish I would have sized up, but after breaking them in they have little give and are easy to walk in, with the low kitten heel.
I shamelessly stalk Zara for outfit inspiration and fell in love with this minaudière - a small, decorative handbag often without handles or a strap.
This one features a handle, and an adjustable removable shoulder strap. It’s simple gold metal hardware is so 60s-mod. It reminds me of a bag one of my Barbie dolls had growing up! Maybe it was the nostalgia but I am so in love with this little purse. I know it will be the perfect companion for date nights and events around town. Just the right size for a phone, lipstick and card/money holder.
As for the rest of my outfit, the distinct golden/mustard yellow color dress is an oldie from Anthropologie that also has that retro drop-waist silhouette I love, and would be super-cute with over-the-knee boots!
The denim jacket with distressed design, "J'adore Rock N' Roll" graphic on the back, was a sale item I happened upon for $10 folks! Playful and in that classic shade of blue, it will be a great laying item come cooler days.
You guys know black and white dominate my wardrobe, and these white boots and black bag will be sure to mix and match with ease, while elevating an everyday look!
When searching for new statement pieces for fall, make sure they are things that will easily transition into your own wardrobe. Stick to a color pallet, think about what makes sense for the season (boots, coats, hats, scarves) and avoid anything too “trendy” that you might only wear once or twice. These should be things that you know will get lots use.
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and make sure to share your new fall finds in the comments below! I love hearing/seeing what everyone is wearing as the temps start to cool!
