It's officially mini skirt season here in Los Angeles, and I'm doing the happy dance! Since I'm very openly NOT a jeans girl, mini skirts are my staple go-to, instead.
I find that a mini skirt can pair perfectly with nearly everything you'd typically wear jeans with. Fitted sweater? Check. Button down blouse? Check. Bomber jacket? Check. Plain white tee? Check. Check. Check.
In fact, the mini skirt staple is an instant wardrobe wow, no matter the occasion. If all it takes to look significantly more polished is to swap out the denim for a mini, while having the same outfit on waist up, then who's stopping us?! And just like THAT, your outfit goes from cute to killer...
Sometimes you see a trend in a magazine, on the internet, on social media...and ask yourself-- is it fleeting? Is it worth the splurge?
Such was the case with the over the knee red boot that I started to see on the New York runways for fall 2017 collections (way back in spring 2017). By September, I knew I loved it, but I just wasn't sure if it would last.
When I make a trend investment, contrary to the opinion of many, I like to invest in the best version of the trend, instead of the "H&M" version. This way, as the trend starts to evaporate, you don't actually own the trend-- you own a "piece of art" that never goes out of style, rather than a cheap copy that gets thrown in the giveaway pile.
So fast forward when I saw these Valentino boots, I knew destiny was staring me straight in the face. And that's the short tale of how I met my favorite boots. xoxo
