My Favorite Winter Boots!

22 Jan

We just returned from our winter vacation in the mountains and I got so many questions about my boots. Not only are they stylish, but they’re really warm! I had always wanted Sorel boots, so last winter I figured it was time to make the purchase for our Aspen trip. They kept our feet warm in single digit temps!!! Nina got the brown color and I got the ivory color which is called “Fawn”. I highly recommend them, especially if you’re considering Uggs. Uggs are cozy and warm, but they don’t have traction for icy conditions. Sorel boots are made for harsh weather.

Wrap yourself in Holiday Magic! (under $30)

19 Dec

I’ve been wanting a holiday cape for quite some time. They’re cute, comfy, and super festive. The only con when purchasing a holiday cape is that they will be worn for a limited amount of time. So for me, it never felt right to spend a lot of money on a holiday cape. Hence, why I never had one.

I recently found so many affordable capes on She in.  I chose a red plaid cape with gold button detail and already have an outfit planned for it! If you’re looking for a year round cape or a holiday cape, you should definitely check out She in.

Fall Favorite: Deep Red Nails

2 Oct

When I think of Fall beauty favorites, I always think of deep colors and jewel tones.  I love a good rich nail color and there is no better time to rock it than during Fall and Winter. Below I’ve linked my favorite Fall shade of red, called Raven Red. It’s very red while being deep enough that it has burgundy hues to it in certain lighting. Also- it’s under $5!

Pink Suede Pumps: Just Do it!

27 Jan

Let’s be honest, some of us are “pink girls” and some of us aren’t. Whether or not pink is your thing, you need pink suede pumps!  Let me tell you why. First of all, you can wear  pink suede pumps with pretty much anything and they look especially amazing with pants. If you think pink is too girly, you can pair pink pumps with ripped jeans or an all black ensemble to off set the girly vibe and go for more of an edgy look. If you can’t find a shoe to match your outfit, throw on pink….believe it or not, it matches everything. I’m starting to think that pink is a neutral, LOL! Lastly, pink can be LOUD, but the classic silhouette of a pointed toe and the rich suede texture bring the perfect balance to the heel. The bottom line is pink heels look great on everyone, and you need some!

Check out these images below of some looks with pink heels and you’ll get to see for yourself that pink heels are a must. I also will link pink heels for every budget for you to shop as well.(scroll down to shop)

Blanket Scarf!(Under $25)

11 Nov

If you buy only one scarf this Fall/Winter…..let it be an oversized plaid blanket scarf. The print is bold enough to add a nice pop of color to any outfit without being overbearing. Blanket scarves can be worn in various ways with t-shirts, tucked into coats or over even a dress. They’re cozy and so quintessentially Fall.

Modcloth has the perfect plaid scarf and it comes in different colors. Priced at $24.99, it’s a great way to update your cold weather wardrobe without breaking the bank!

Have a great weekend,

XO- Journey
