Sweetest Downfall


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!

  1. For lace is equal to romantic. I love how it makes me feel good every time I wear one. I love your dress her, i like how you make twist by wearing a studded boots. Fun!

  2. Eeer I failed proofreading. Sorry for my grammar and spelling. I'm not feeling well (i guess that's a valid excuse? hahaha)

  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!


  4. cute dress and you look so pretty :)

  5. I think the boots provide a nice contrast to the girly dress! You look adorable!

  6. God do I love that dress- it's even gorgeous when simply styled like in your last post. And yay for coming out of comfort zones! I love following you all for the same reason- you give me so many creative ideas. I absolutely LOVE how those boots transform this dress, it's definitely a fun, creative outfit

  7. I think the boots add a great edgy detail to this outfit! You look lovely as always!

    Love, Mary ♡ Fashionbirds

  8. This is one fashion risk that is totally worth it....cuz you are rocking that look in a lovely Zooey Deschanel kind of way!


  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!

  10. 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!
    Happy Friday!

  11. I am so happy to have inspired you!! That's such a compliment, thank you :D
    I loooove this dress and those boots are so gorgeous, i obviously really love this combination! You rock it!! The colour combination of your bright hair, that cardigan and this dress is so beautiful too ;)

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. I love the boots! I was just thinking the other day I never see you in boots and I LIVE in boots over the winter! It looks cute on you :)

  15. I think it a risk well taken! Love the boots with that dress and cardigan!

  17. Love your outfit and I also love pairing feminine outfits with boots : )

  21. 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.

  22. big like here ashley! i like the feminine lace with the edgy boots. your hair looks fab too. :)
