Why: Ever since I began my adult wardrobe after college, I’ve been carefully investing when I could afford it to add really great, year in, year out pieces.  I think these boots are going to be one of those items.  No doubt about it, they were a significant part of my fall budget, but after reading so many positive reviews, I went for them.  And to be completely honest, I feel like a ‘cool girl’ (technical description) wearing them.  It’s WAY too hot to wear them with pants right now, so I needed to go for something I could layer in the cooler morning hours and then take off by lunch at mid day.   

This dress has been in my closet for a long time.  It’s vintage, but not precious, historical type vintage.  When I bought it, the length was too long and pretty dowdy, so I chopped it off (something I’m not afraid of at all!) Now it feels like it could be vintage or straight out of TopShop and I love that!  I even got a little rebellious and let my slip show at the hem! (Half of you are wondering what the hell a slip is and the other half of you are wagging your finger at me for not being lady like!) 

See how else I’ve worn this dress here, here and here

Long story short, I really like this look! It’s edgy, but easy at the same time.  How do you take two opposites and blend them together? Share and link on my facebook page
