  • Style File: Fall’s Must-Have Boots

    One of the reasons I love the fall is buying new boots. I live for boots! They keep your legs and feet warm on brisk fall days, work well with jeans, skirts and dresses and add some height to your look which is always a plus. As the first day of fall quickly approaches (Sunday, September 22nd at 4:44pm to be exact) I have begun my quest to find the perfect fall boots to rock all season long.

    Sure, she may say “I’d like a ruby for my birthday this year,” or perhaps she might add “emeralds are really nice, and I don’t have one.” Really? She is actually saying to you “if you can’t afford a diamond and you must get me something else, okay then.” Trust us, go for the diamonds.

  • Style File: The Boyfriend Cropped Jean

    Okay so this past weekend I had to break down and buy some new jeans as my current lived-in pair are worse for the wear. I headed to Old Navy and checked out their latest styles. I spotted a super cool pair of cropped Boyfriend jeans that looked both chic and casual and perfect for summer. I tried them on and was immediately in love with the fit, styling and wash. I love these jeans. You can wear them with flats or dress them up with platform heels or wedges. You can find a boyfriend jean in every price point from designer to mass market and they come in a wide variety of washes, styles and sizes. They are super flattering, easy to wear and really a great staple for summer!
