It’s all about the Boots

Really there is nothing better than a statement boot this fall. I fell in love with this suede pair from Simply Be – the gorgeous bohemian-inspired embroidery in such bright colors. Perfect height for me – easy enough to walk around in and they just enhance a pair of jeans or leggings. I paired with a simple pair of “boyfriend” jeans, a waxed denim moto, a luxe but simple shirt and my favorite oversized scarf. A great look for any chilly fall day.

Embroidered Ankle Boots – (available up to size 11) from Simply Be
Catherine Jeans – Kut from Kloth
Black V-Rex T – Universal standard
Waxed Denim Moto – H&M+ (from many years ago sadly)
Lots of pins from some of my favorite makers like Robin Eisenberg and Sara M Lyons

Lace for spring, how groundbreaking!

Lace is about as floraly as I tend to get – and now that it’s finally warm enough in Chicago that I don’t have to wear a heavy coat constantly, well it’s time for this lace skirt.

I bought this skirt last year at Nordstrom Rack. I found it in the straight size section and figured I could probably wear it since it had an elastic waist. Well, I’ve gained a bit of weight since last year and what do you know, it STILL fits. I’m not sure what the intended fit shape is supposed to be, but I think it works as it is on me. Proof that it’s worth investigating straight size sections in any store!

Paired with some short booties and my always-present denim jacket, well here you go – a decent spring outfit.
