What to Wear with Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are the ultimate in fashion huh?  They are for the fashion risk takers.  It’s okay to wear them with boot cut jeans and cover them up, but really, they are meant to be seen.  So wear skinny jeans that tuck in or leggings that show them off.  Or be creative and pair them with a skirt.  When you’re feeling edgy, these are your go-to boots!

What to Wear with a Bright Pencil Skirt

Many of us have the usual black pencil skirt hanging in their closet, but what about a brightly colored one?  Does this give you pause when trying to pull a look together?  Here are a few ideas-
1)  Pair it with something equally as bright.  A fuchsia blazer is a really fun piece to own.  You’ll be surprised at how many outfits it’ll refresh.
2)  Find some romance with a classic neutral.  The pretty details on this sweater make it perfect for work.
3)  Spice it up and add some shine.  Head out on the town with this sequin top and celebrate!

What to Wear with Tall Boots

Tall boots can be tricky.  Here’s a rule- don’t wear anything that bunches at the knee and keep your pants cut skinny.  Riding boots are by far the most versatile of all boots.  They go well with loose skirts, skinny jeans, slim cords, etc.  Use them to add a masculine touch to very feminine clothes.  And don’t take them too seriously!

Merry Christmas!

In honor of the Christmas holiday, I’m taking a few days off.  I’ll be back after Christmas!
I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!!  Rejoice in the announcement of our Savior!
“And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'”

-Luke 2:10 

New Year’s Eve

It’s New Year’s Eve!  Go all out- wear the glitz, wear the tall heels, wear the fake eyelashes (here’s a tip- buy extra glue!), but keep the accessories SIMPLE….especially with sequins.  Think of it this way, where is the focus of the outfit?  Definitely the dress, right?  So let it shine.
And have a wonderful New Year!

Christmas Day

Yea!  It’s finally Christmas Day!  I hope you all have someone to share this special day with, have a meal and remember the birth of our Savior.
If you have somewhere to be, wear something with a relaxed vibe but with special touches.  A pair of trousers, a detailed blouse and a few pretty accessories- easy peasy!
