New Trendy Fall Boots

Much Anticipated Ankle Boots for Fall

img_8929

Hello everybody & happy hump day. Last week was a rough one. With one job requiring much of my time and energy and another occupying what ever’s left I’ve seemed to be on an emotional roller coaster. This made receiving these long awaited ankle boots a trillion times better.

I have been on the hunt for a very specific style of boots for quite some time. Most were too low or high or way too expensive. The Omari faux suade ankle boots from EGO are absolutely perfect,finally. They’re have that cool 70’s look without looking too forced. The heel is not to high and chunky making it super easy to walk in. My only complaint is that it could use some extra padding if you’re looking to walk long distances. The bottom of your feet can get a bit sore after a while but nothing some good inserts couldn’t fix. The boots are relatively cheap at $43 (USD). Stay tuned for some fun styling with these gems!

Multi Purpose Shirt Dress

Good morning all and thank you for clicking into another new post. Today I wanted to talk about a very important addition to my wardrobe recently, that is the Asos shirt dress. To start I want to mention a few pros and cons on the piece. It is made up of 99% polyester, a material they all warn you to stay clear of. Yes, I made the classic mistake of purchasing before looking at the materials, I’m a classic fashion noob. This dress,however, is forgivable. The versatility is incredible. I stumbled on it on the Asos website while on the quest for a good shirt dress that will get me through at least two seasons. When it arrived I looked at the care tag and noticed the material and got nearly worried. I’ve heard so much about materials to avoid and was torn between returning it because of what it’s made of or keeping it because it met all my requirements.

I’m no fashion textile expert so I want to know from you was this worth the buy? The dress was $49 made up of 99% polyester and 2% elastane. What do you think? Could I have gone for something better for the price or have I gotten what I’ve paid for?

Apart from materials I personally really like this dress. Again, it is a versatile piece that feels super flattering on me(sizing UK 6, US 2), if I may say so. The material will definitely keep me warm for the coming season to give me the most wear out of it. For this look I teamed contrasting pieces like my light washed jeans and black & white bag to emphasize my layering. I chose a top the same color as this layering piece to keep the look minimal. The shoes I went for are very comfortable for walking long distances and could easily be swapped out for sneakers, pumps, or boots when the weather cools down. Stay tuned for part 2 for more ideas on how to style this dress. Sadly it is no longer available but I will be on the hunt for alternative options. Have a great day!
