Sparkle and Shine!

Happy New Year friends!  I know I’ve worn these boots a million times already, but they’re probably my most favorite piece that I bought this season.  They’re definitely pricey for a pair of boots, but they go with so many outfits!  I felt like I could justify it because I wear them all the time and a ton of different ways with skirts, dresses, leather leggings, jeans, and shorts.  Hopefully you’ve seen some previous posts showing other ways to wear them if you’re considering making the purchase.  Price per wear, girls!

Fashion Tip:  The main key to wearing them with skirts, shorts and dresses is making sure whatever it is that you’re wearing is short enough so that there is some space between the hemline and the top of the boots.  If you don’t want to show that much skin, you could put on some opaque black tights for extra coverage.

I also wanted to show you that it’s ok to still wear some sparkle when the holidays are over.  Yes, it’s ok to do this year round!  Whether to wear sparkle or not, really just depends on what you’re doing, what time of day it is, and whether it’s your personality or not.  Some gals are like ‘bring on the bling!’, and some are not as flashy.  Either way is fine!   For this daytime outfit, I thought the necklace had just the right amount of sparkle and added a festive touch to the look.  I also wanted to add dimension to the look with the texture of the python in the bag.  I thought this was a perfect way to show you how to take an all neutral outfit and add accessories to really jazz it up!  I hope 2016 sparkles and shines for you all!
