How To Wear Duck Boots

25 October 2016

This post is sponsored by Zappos.
Surprisingly enough, after several years of living in the north I have yet to own a pair of duck boots. I'm likely the only one. Turns out after all this time I've been missing out because this particular pair from Kamik is actually pretty awesome, especially when speaking towards the comfort levels of the sustainable, versatile and stylish boot. But, I wouldn't expect anything less from the 118 year old Canadian company. They're obviously doing something right and I would definitely recommend checking out their boots on Zappos, who has a pretty extensive selection for men, women and children. The boots are more on the affordable side with a median price range of $120 for a pair of boots. I personally set my sights on the Evelyn from their Heritage 1898 collection, because I am sorely lacking in the dark brown footwear department and this boot style is a classic (who knew they would be such an essential!). The contrasting laces and (waterproof) lightweight  RubberHe shell add a pop of color and texture that you wouldn't necessarily get with your typical fall boots. The decorative buckle detail adds an extra pop to the overall style of the classic boot. The fact that they are all weather proof doesn't hurt either, wear them now with chunky socks and a flirty dress for a beautiful fall day and bundle up for the snow later with an oversized sweater, skinny jeans and a jacket. The options are endless, you can even take them through spring showers if you please. Plus, the fixed 200B 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation offers a warm and comfortable foot environment, regardless of the season. 

Check out Kamik at Zappos and stock up on your winter boots for the season. Don't forget about 365-day free returns, super fast free shipping and award winning customer service. All of which are easily why Zappos is my favorite online retailer.

5 Ways To Wear The Chunky Knit Sweater

24 October 2016

If there's one sweater in my closet that I've gotten a ton of wear out of over the last couple of years it is definitely this white chunky cable knit sweater. I've been able to wear it a number of ways, creating entirely different looks with each wear. Surprisingly enough it's still available online (you can grab it here) and I would 100% recommend adding it or something similar to your closet just to make your fall and winter stylings so much easier. Sometimes all it takes is one staple...

Here's 5 ways to wear the token Chunky Knit Sweater

Fall Boots: SOREL Conqest Wedge

20 October 2016

If there's one boot I can always count on during the fall and winter season it is without a doubt, SOREL. After partnering with them for the last several years I've found that their boots not only hold up to the test against the elements but they can be worn with everything from floaty skirts to distressed jeans. This season, with Zappos & SOREL, I'm stepping outside of my usual  Medina and Cate The Great comfort zone and opting for something a little more rugged: the SOREL Conquest. I'm almost 100% certain I picked these based on the shoe laces and lace up detail but after slipping into the micro fleece liner and the molded insole my feet were in absolute heaven. Like most of my SOREL pieces the super soft leather is weatherproof and made to last. I love the molded 3'' pronounced tread wedge, it's not too high and not entirely flat making it perfect for city sidewalks and our trips to the mountains, while giving my 5'3 frame a little height. I ended up styling the Conquest with black high-waisted denim, a turtle neck, and a red & black fringe cardigan. I couldn't resist the red and black contrast from the sweater and the laces. But, I think the booties would look equally cute paired with an oversized sweater, chunky socks and a flirty skirt for the perfect tough meet feminine fall look. 

Check out the entire SOREL selection at Zappos and take advantage of their super fast free shipping and incredible customer service. Plus, free 365 day returns, who can beat that? Really?

Fringe and Butterflies

18 October 2016

I'm almost always all for flirty printed dresses like this butterfly print tiered dress from Bebe, but for some reason this season I've been reaching for them more and more. My most favorite pairing has to be with "tougher" jackets like this suede fringe one and over the knee boots. It's the perfect fall bohemian pairing.

Fall Essential: The Hobo Bag

17 October 2016

One of my favorite bag shapes has to be the classic, holds everything, hobo bag. There's no resisting the draped, sling over your shoulder silhouette especially when it comes with zipper details like this Vera Bradley version, the Vivian. The super soft pebbled leather in cognac makes this 'hobo' easily styled with all of your outfits choices throughout the season including, but obviously not limited to, this black and cognac pairing. 

I'm all for this all black with a pop of brown look from some of my favorite fall staples; over the knee boots, a leather(ette) mini and a classic black turtleneck.  Since, my boots are starting to slouch a bit on one side I figured a quick and stylish fix would be the addition of a scarf, which surprisingly enough matches up perfectly to the bag. Win and Win. 

Who else is digging hobo bags this season? Shop The Vivian here (also in black and claret).

Fall Essentials: High Waisted Jeans & Mid-Calf Booties

12 October 2016

I have spotted quite a few new additions to the fall booties selection this season, so I have been motivated to step out of my usual ankle and over-the-knee comfort zone and try something new. Meet the mid-calf bootie. Aside from over the knee styles, this is the boot silhouette of choice this season. It’s surprisingly flattering, even on my short little legs and comes in a pretty broad selection of different styles. The variety goes all the way from western styles with fringe, to block-heeled mod styles in a shiny patent leather. While I’m all for the mod look I couldn’t help but love this pointed toe, wrap-around tie detailed tan nubuck pair by Steve Madden (Gaybel). They are just tall enough to give my 5’3 frame a little extra height and are surprisingly REALLY comfortable. Wear them bare-legged or with a cropped pair of skinnies, like this high waisted, slightly distressed pair from Joe’s jeans. This pair, the Wasteland Ankle in Jerri is from the Joe’s Flawless collection. It lifts and hides any imperfections for an extremely flattering fit. I’m all for the comfy, wear-all-day stretch denim and the lightly distressed hand-sanded detail on the thighs, against the deep indigo hue. Naturally they pair perfectly with a black merino turtleneck, patchwork poncho, and the addition of a hobo bag. 

Both gems, the booties and jeans, were found and shipped (1-day, of course) via Zappos. By now, I’m sure it is no secret that I do A LOT of shopping with Zappos, I’m constantly on the app to check the new arrivals. And while I occasionally have to take advantage of the free 365-day return policy, I know that it will be easy to find a replacement or upgrade in style.
