Boots & Bags

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!) 


The Shoe

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.


The Bag

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!

Cheers babes!

Overalls

Jessica Wagner

The chicest way to style overalls for spring
 

Yes, overalls are cool again. I kind of love that I also frolicked around in these when I was ten.

I own a wide-leg pair of vintage overalls that I’ve worn the last couple years before they became trendy again, which has always earned a sideway glace from my husband.   

Are you planning on painting the house? 

NO! Maybe…

So yeah, I have to admit, overalls are associated with a laid-back look for sure. But you can take this denim style from OshKosh cute to grown-up chic with some smart styling.

Meet your starter overalls. I added this pair to my closet last week and wanted to share. I’ve been in love with the idea of overalls for years, but when it came to finding a pair that fit, it was easier said than done. This distressed pair is tight at the waist with a skinny rolled up ankle, creating a flattering silhouette. Finding a pair of denim overalls that fit well is the key to pulling off this look, so don't let a good pair pass you by. You want them to feel tailor-made. To offset this relaxed boyish look, I paired mine with a feminine crop top and heels.

There's an inherent no-fuss, cool-girl quality to this look that makes getting dressed a snap.

Overalls are a tried and true style that have the renaissance of summer. Never underestimate the emotive power of a good pair of dungarees! The most playful of garments, there’s something nostalgic about sliding into this all-in-one piece that makes you want to go climb trees.

If you’re feeling apprehensive about trying a trend like overalls, ease into the style by pairing a dark wash with comfy basics. A solid black or white tee and some sneaks for daytime wear, or a divey night out. Once you're ready to take it to the next level, swap out the casual slides for strappy minimal heels. The sleek shoe will balance out the distressed fit and make for one effortless look.

The modern take on this one-and-done becomes weekend-ready when paired with black ankle boots and a buttoned-to-the-top oxford shirt (think Olivia Palermo.)  Or go grunge with one strap undone and a plaid shirt draped around your waist. Layer with stripes for a cool daytime style. Top off with a straw boater hat and ride out those hot days of summer like a kid again.
