back to basics

March 14, 2013


Wearing:
Boots: Steve Madden 'Intyce' (similar)
Monogram Necklace: Baublebar (similar)
Pavé Bracelet: J.Crew
Leopard Bangle: J.Crew
Harlow Arrow Bangle: c/o Poshlocket
Regina Sparkle Bangle: c/o Poshlocket
Nails: Essie 'A List'

Sometimes, you look at your closet, and wish you could wear your fall boots just once more since you know it'll be wayyyy to hot to wear them until another 6 months from now; Then you plan your outfit around said boots. These Maddens have been through a couple of fall/winter seasons with me, and they're still going strong! To be honest, I feel like there still might be this "black and brown= no no" stigma, but you guys know how I feel about those classic fashion "no-no's"… So, black and cognac it is! A gorgeous combo, I might add. However, it may just have looked a tad better in the daylight without my giant shadow behind me. Ha, well, you can't have it all! Hope you're having an amazing week! Thank you so much for reading.
