I’ve had this outfit in my head for a while now, and this past weekend, it was finally cool enough to wear it. Almost. I found this great Best of the Pesto Top at ModCloth, and it’s perfect for breezy fall days. It’s a very loose, tunic-style blouse that requires a tank underneath, and since I’m always hot by nature, I try to avoid layers unless it’s really cold. I paired it with my Karen Kane jeggings from last year, and my new booties from Anthropologie, which were my reward for completing a writing gig recently.
Since I usually dress with a nod to vintage style, I thought this little departure was kind of fun for a busy weekend running errands or taking a day trip with the boys. The denim leggings are basically skinny jeans (miraculous skinny jeans that hold everything in), so I always pair them with a loose top to balance everything out.
And the Adelena Buckled Booties are completely different from my normal shoe style, but I found them so interesting and cool that I had to try them. As it turns out, they are really comfortable and easy to wear, with a zipper on the back.
They remind me of jazz shoes, with a little bit of Stevie Nicks and Game of Thrones thrown in for good measure. I guess you could say they’re so ugly, they’re beautiful, but I think they are pretty fabulous and will be great for fall and winter.
