It’s been a long time since I’ve done an outfit post, but we’re back with a bang (and a great giveaway!). I wanted to do something a little different and share an outfit that I would genuinely wear everyday for a couple reasons:
1. So many of my outfit posts (and other outfit posts on blogs) are ridiculous. Fun, but ridiculous.
2. I wanted to show that it’s easy to look like a million bucks without spending like it.
DSW was my inspiration, and I was so excited when I was contacted to work with them and feature an amazing pair of boots (that are crazy discounted on their site!) that are great for work or play – and even hold up well in the snow! The Coconuts Britain Riding Boot in Black, besides being affordable, is an amazingly stylish boot that isn’t trendy, and you can rock it with everything from a cute sweater dress (which I did earlier this week) or jeans. I’m wearing a size 7, which is my standard size, and they would be great for someone with slightly muscular calves – the shaft has decent stretch and I had some wiggle room in the calf area. And they’re actually pretty warm, which is crucial during this brutal Colorado weather. (See the snow? I am so not a fan.)
For the outfit, I selected one of my new favorite pairs of jeans, the skinny from Eugene is My Middle Name. These are borderline impossible to find for purchase online (I know, I’m heartbroken too!), but if you can grab them, do. I’ve probably been wearing them once a week for the past four months… which is a ton for me! I’m in a size 26 and would say they fit TTS.
What I’m Wearing:
(Lucy wanted to get into one of the shots. Isn’t she the cutest ever?)
Sweater: Juicy Couture (from TJ Maxx – HUGE deal! I ended up scoring this adorable knit sweater for $29.99, marked down from $187. Sweet, right?!?)
Jeans: My Middle Name is Eugene
Shoes: Coconuts Britain Riding Boot
Jacket: Ted Baker (scored from eBay)
From head to toe (not including undergarments… sorry, guys!), this outfit cost less than $300!
I’d love to hear what you think about this casual, everyday outfit – do you prefer outfit posts like these, or my more flamboyant ones?
