J.Crew scarf (Factory version under $25), Madewell blouse (more options), BDG jeans, Louis Vuitton Speedy 30, Sole Society Harley Stud bootie c/o and 50% off, Prada sunglasses

This outfit is pretty typical of what I wear every day. A basic blouse, comfy jeans and either flats or boots. This time I decided to change it up and try and style a second pair of Spring booties from Sole Society, this time a little more bold with skinny jeans. While I must admit that i’m not as comfortable in this outfit, I do like the concept of booties and jeans.

These booties are admittedly not as comfortable as the Kita’s reviewed a few posts ago. They are a faux material and more stiff, not a walking shoe. But, I do love the three straps across the front and the look of the biker style.

Are there any other booties I should try? Any other styles i’m missing that you’re loving?

Sole Society Kita Bootie

A few weeks ago Sole Society was kind enough to send me a few pairs of booties to try out for Spring time. Not one to be patient, I wanted to figure a way to style these ankle booties for Winter. I decided to go the safe route and hide the ankle length of the bootie under a maxi dress and pair with other muted colors to keep things basic. I’m loving this combo and it definitely helps to ease me into the bootie world.

Remember my review of the infamous Rag and Bone booties? I think the side profile of these from Sole Society is far superior. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, these nude booties also come in black.

The Kita bootie is a manageable 3 inch heel height with a rubber sole, providing extra comfort. The faux suede upper is also comfortable and the side zip makes them easy to get into.

What do you think of the nude bootie? Yay or nay?

The Beauty of Bodycon (UPDATE w/ Sale Info)

Friends. I had to update everyone with a sale that Anthropologie is having. A very similar dress to the one below is on sale for over 50% off. Happy shopping!

Anthropologie dress (this year’s updated version here), SPANX tights, DUO boots, Ray Ban sunglasses

The last time this dress was worn, I mentioned that it was my first pearshape purchase. By that I mean it was the first dress I bought when I finally started to embrace my shape. The bodycon style and shorter length was a bold move, but this dress has paid for itself ten-fold. I purchased it at Anthropologie right when this style appeared in stores and is now reproduced in a new color each year.

Interestingly enough, I feel slimmer and sexier in this body-con style than in any a-line garment I own. I know many stylists and designers recommend that curvy women opt for the a-line style, that this “suites everyone.” While I agree, I think each person needs to find what style works for them, how they feel most comfortable. For me, showing off my curves has become my comfort zone, and in a dress that does such an amazing job of camouflaging any imperfections, I feel infinitely more confident.

Have a wonderful start to your week! And please, tell me, what style are you most comfortable in?

Valentine’s Day Brunch Florals

Ted Baker peplum (last season but this one is amazing and 50% off), BB Dakota dress (worn as skirt)(similar), Sam Edelman sandals (updated version), Prada sunglasses

Cesar and I are starting to talk about plans for Valentine’s Day. We thought maybe we would do a brunch and spend the day walking the city together. Part of my favorite thing about holiday’s are the outfits, so I put together this ensemble as a possibility for that day. I am having a serious moment with peplums and this white dress (a first for me) is proving to be quite the staple.
