Les Bottines: An OOTD

Happy (almost) Fourth of July! I have been looking for an outfit to pair my new white booties with for a long time, and today’s red, white, and blue look made them the perfect addition! I’ve never really been a booties person (I feel like they usually make my short legs look even shorter) but I loved that these came with a tall, chunky heel. The perfect stepping stone into the world of les bottines!

I purchased these boots secondhand at Uptown Frisco– can you believe that the exact style of bootie I had been wanting to get my hands on just happened to come in my size? I’ve had great luck lately; a perk of working there is that you can get your hands on the new items as soon as they come in!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Top: Merci Shirt – Modern Lux
Skirt: Button-Up Denim Skirt (similar)
Shoes: White Heeled Booties (similar)

I think my next step in styling booties will be to figure out how to pair these with jeans. I want to make sure I can continue to wear these when fall rolls around (even though right now it feels so far away!)

Shades Stay On

I love my weekend days. I have my barre or pilates class in the morning to get my sweat on, but still have the rest of the day to be productive (or if I need the mental break, to do nothing.) I also love the weekend because this is when I get to be really creative with my wardrobe- I love fusing my professional wear with more casual pieces for a funky blend of #girlboss and easygoing.

When I get all dressed up, it’s an extra incentive to go out and get some errands done. (Or more likely, go shopping on a whim because I don’t actually have any pressing errands to run.) What’s the point of a cute outfit if the world doesn’t see it?

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Top: Drapey Tie-Neck Top – J. Crew
Skirt: Back To School Skirt – Altar’d State
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Back to work tomorrow, but luckily my dress code won’t affect my wardrobe too much! Maybe I’ll incorporate this leopard top into a casual chic ensemble soon.

Girls Night Out

This #OOTD is actually from Monday! It’s finals week (no, I did not wear this to my 8 a.m. final exam Monday morning) and I went out to dinner with some of my friends Monday night to celebrate the end of the year. We chose Torchy’s (a personal favorite of mine) and we had a great time! I loved the excuse to get dressed up, since finals week provides very little excuse for that.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Top: White Tube Top (similar)
Skirt: Back To School Skirt – Altar’d State
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

If you’re in the midst of finals right now too, good luck! Only a few more days, and then we’re on summer break. Hang in there!
