Something Old, Something New

Next UP....White Ankle Boots

As fashion month concludes and the whirlwind of non-stop runway shows, street style photos and 24/7 fashion content popping up all over our timelines settles; we can now start to digest what we've seen.  One particular item, that wasn't necessarily all over the runways, but more so worn by those fashion insiders attending the shows were white ankle boots.

Honestly, I think the only thing white I've worn on my feet since I was about 6 was a trainer.  I can recall when I was younger wearing white dress shoes on special occasions such as Easter, but other than that....no thanks.  However, after seeing these beauties paired so chicly with tights, skirts and denim dressed both up and down, I want in.  Basically white is a neutral and can be worn with practically anything. So yea, why not, but just to keep you guys from veering off the right/chic road, and down the treacherous lane of "looking country" please take heed to curated selects posted below.

Floral Tent Dress - Balenciaga Inspired

Hey guys,  I am back with a new blog post.  Here I am featuring a blouse that I received from my boyfriend's grandmother a while ago.  However, after viewing the recent AW17 Balenciaga collection, I was halted at Look 31 because it was so similar to the vintage piece I own.  I immediately went to find my floral oversized shirt, so that I could style it up and feature it here on the blog.

As I have expressed here on the blog several times, I tend to go for clothing that is a bit oversized.  Although I have a smaller frame, I don't like to show it off at all.  So both my shirt and the Balenciaga dress would be pieces that I would grab almost daily.  This shirt would definitely make more than one appearance on the blog because I can already tell it's a favorite.

To create my perfect "grannie chic" look I paired my floral shirt with denim stretch blue jean with minimal distressing, and my absolute favorite pair of blue suede ankle boots that I scored during the winter sales at H&M.
