Blazer & Booties

Due in large part to having my new son Joseph, my fashion posts have decreased in quantity – until now.  These boots have me all sorts of inspired!  In my last #ootd I showed you guys how I styled my first pick of boots from DSW.  This time I’m showing off my more casual but equally fabulous and trendy western short booties. I’ve struggled in the past finding a pair of booties like these for a while because they never fit quite right; but these fit like a pair of boots I’ve worn for years.  Best of all they even have that worn-in, vintage look making them perfect for jeans, dresses and even slacks.  They look like all those expensive booties that you see on celebs but for way less (click here to see some of my favorite celeb looks).  I picked the exact opposite style of boots this time for two reasons: One, to highlight the selection of styles that DSW has, and also to fit my extremely eclectic style.

I need to be comfortable.  I have five kids and I’m always on the run, so I tend to grab a blazer and go.  It’s the easiest way to make any outfit instantly polished.  For this look I wanted something that I would wear out to a casual lunch with the family so I grabbed my favorite blazer (you can see it also here and here), black jeggings, and a striped sweater. The boots really make this outfit pop!  I love that the entire look is sort of sleek and the boots give it an effortless almost unfinished look.  To me, that’s what style is all about – combining all the things you love and making them work.  Thanks to DSW for sending me these boots and stay tuned…I have lots of plans for this pair of boots.

Quilted Black Booties & Tights

I have hundreds of pair of shoes!  I’m such a shoe freak that if I happen to find shoes that I absolutely love, I buy multiple pairs.  My particular weakness has always been boots – whether high heeled boots, riding boots, or even cowboy boots – because they make any outfit ooze the perfect rough and tumble vibe.  To say that I was super excited to not only work with DSW again (you can see my last post here) but also be sent two pair of boots of my choice would be an understatement!

Picking a pair of boots that I liked was easy; narrowing it down to two was a little tough because DSW has an enormous selection of styles.  I wanted a little bit of a challenge, so I chose two completely different looks.  For my first pick, I went with a pair of high heel boots.  I loved the fact that they had the perfect combo of sexy with its sky-high heels but also edgy with a buckle, quilt and rubber soles.  The details are definitely on point!  When I first put them on I was a little skeptical about the heel being SO high.  I’m pretty comfortable in heels but sometimes they can be slippery and hard to walk in – that was not the case with these boots.  The rubber soles kept them solid and the platform made them comfy and easy to walk in.

I decided to pair the booties with a little black dress, tights to add warmth and texture and a favorite oversized cardigan for a cozy touch.  This is something I would wear on a chilly night out to dinner with the girls or even on a date night. It’s super comfy, stylish and sexy.  Stay tuned to see my next pair of boots and how I styled them!
