Sweetest Downfall

laceandboots1

I'm not going to lie, I totally went out of my comfort zone with this outfit.  Maybe not the outfit itself, but the boots with this outfit.  But I've been really inspired by Jenna of Smitten lately.  I love the way she pairs feminine outfits with her crazy cute studded boots.  So I went out on a limb and tried this look myself.  I may not have to deal with Canadian snow like she does, but I do my best to find an excuse to wear boots with dresses.  I think I love it!

Dress- Forever 21 (seen here)
Tights- H&M
Cardigan- Forever 21
Boots- Q
Ring- Betsey Johnson

I can't wait to try out different dresses and skirts with these boots.  I get so stuck on heels and ballerina flats that I sometimes forget that it's good to try something new.  That's one of the many reasons I love following other fashion bloggers.  I'm inspired by so many every single day :).

If you'd like to check out more of Jenna's super cute style, make sure to check out her blog here.  Happy Friday!

  3. That dress is beautiful! I can't believe it's F21. Sometimes you can scoop up the best deals there.

    I think the boots really work...and much easier on the tootsies!

  9. I commend you on pushing your comfort zone! I always want to wear a tough shoe with a delicate dress, but I always second guess myself! This looks great and it totally looks like something you would wear!

  11. I love this edgier look! Pairing my combat-esque boots with girly dresses is pretty much one of my favorite pairings ever. This dress is so pretty, the xolor goes really good with your hair!

  13. I think this is amazing! Boots are a perfect flats/heels substitute. Plus these boots are so cute! I think I wear more boots not on the blog than I wear heels in real life (thanks messed up ankle!) It's strange how blogs alter the way you change your style!

  14. The boots definitely gives this dress more of a wintery feel, I like it! SoCal is never really gloomy enough to wear boots, I feel ridiculous walking around in boots with the sun shining on me haha. But dainty dresses with combat boots are awesome!

  22. Cute look! I tend to like your blog posts more than most fashion bloggers because you always seem so cheerful and therefore more friendly. Too many bloggers try to seem "too cool" or so overly professional (it's clothes for goodness sake!), but you just keep it real. Thank you! It's refreshing.
