Lace it Up

December 2015
December 2015

Hello! I've always prided myself on my shoe collection but recently I've upped my game by adding a few new pairs of swoon-worthy booties to my wardrobe. Including these stunning, leopard-print chelsea booties. This past Black Friday, I scooped these booties up online at Charlotte Russe for only $20. Yes! Only $20! I love the subtle print, versatile colors and heeled bootie style of the shoe. These are my new "practical" boots i.e. they don't have five inch heels and they'll be fine to wear if I'm on my feet all day. I've only had these booties for about a week now but I've worn them almost everyday since at least once; I can tell that I'll get a lot of use out of these booties this season.

For this look, I styled them with a black pair of high-rise denim. Yes, I actually wore pants for once. For surprisingly warm December weather, I styled a lace-up top with the jeans. The rich green color, trendy lace-up style and cropped fit have me swooning over it. This top was actually another Black Friday online buy. I purchased this top from GoJane for about $15. For some odd reason, I seem to have something against buying tops but I'm glad that I added this one to my wardrobe. I completed the look with a couple golden bracelets, a cool pair of shades and a swipe of lipstick.
