the sleeveless blazer & leopard print heels

fall, where are you?

 i cannot wait until it hits 70 degrees here in texas. count on me to be the girl who pulls out their boots and scarves when that day comes.

the sleeveless blazer. this is an out-of-the-box piece for me, so it took a little while to pull this look together. whoever thought a blazer minus the sleeves would be fashionable?! well, either way, this blush sleeveless blazer was one of those random Forever21 finds that actually happened to be on sale! #score!!! on trendy pieces like these, i usually don't like to spend $$$. that's why we have Forever21. i opted to pair this with a v-neck borderline-crop top, distressed skinnys, and my first pair of leopard print heels! these Sole Society heels are the d'orsay style with a mid-heel height which is perfect for me/the office. i also like how the calf hair adds extra texture to any outfit. i'm excited to put more looks together with these leo heels! overall, the blush + ivory + navy + leo = a good combo. 

and lastly, these ear jackets. every time i wear them i get a ton of compliments! i think it's because they are so different/spunky and really stand out. ear jackets are really fun to wear and gives 'edge' to ANY outfit, talk about #streetstyleBaubleBar has an awesome collection of ear jackets ranging from subtle to crazy! i'd say these are medium-crazy!

rock the sleeveless blazer,

stripes & rain boots

on a gloomy and cool day i jumped at the opportunity to wear my rain boots. or as my sister calls them, WELLIES! 

i love my Hunter rain boots. they are an investment. or at least that is what i keep telling myself. yes, it is a little crazy to spend that much on a pair of rubber shoes... but i really do believe in quality over quantity. Hunter rain boots are made of premium rubber. they feel durable, are comfortable to walk in, and easy to drive with since they are not made of "hard rubber" like others i have tried. these will last forever. Hunter is known for the 'Original' rain boot (16" shaft, 15" calf circumference), but they also make the 'Huntress' rain boot which has a shorter shaft (14"), and an extended calf (16.5" circumference). this is perfect for me since i am short (5'2") and have large calves. for sizing, these run large! if you are in between sizes, size down. i am usually a 5.5 and i bought a 5 which gives me plenty of room even with thick socks. 

they will keep your feet dry and happy?! they come in a variety of colors, patterns, and finishes (matte & glossy)? are these enough reasons why you should purchase them?! the answer is... YES!
