Today's Everyday Fashion: Fancy Shoes

Inspiration: Barbara Martello via Harper's Bazaar

My brain is on vacation this weekend. I try to tell it that it's time to make outfits and it just sits there, refusing to participate. The inspiration is perfection - her darker jeans look seamless with her boots and I love the touch of fur. Whereas my jeans are more of a contrast to the boots, and they are too baggy around the ankles. I have been hunting for the perfect black boots since this October post. With a Piperlime coupon code and a $65 gift card from Christmas last year, the boots came to only $10 (or $75 without the gift card). Such a great deal and I love them but I'm disappointed that they don't work with these jeans. The jury is still out, stay tuned....

Also - I ordered the aforementioned F21 dress, and it does not disappoint in person! What's even better is that F21 is offering 20% off holiday party attire (which includes this dress) use code HOLIDAY20OFF through 12/2. Shop the party section here.

Last but not least - I ordered the first pair of shoes from F21 and they are seriously amazing, I love the gold metal down the front of the foot. I was inspired to round up more drool-worthy t-strap shoes, perfect for the holidays!
