vintage boots and skirt for spring

vintage boots and skirt for spring

I love boots and I love warm weather. I get to combine these two loves when it's cool enough to wear boots but warm enough to go without a coat.  Denim skirts showed up all over the runways for Spring 2015, and got me excited to pull out this vintage denim wrap skirt I thrifted years ago. It keep surviving closet purges, so I better wear it!

I found this awesome pair of vintage boots at Savers last fall. They usurped the place of a very similar, less comfortable pair of tall brown boots. No need to keep both. I first paired the skirt and boots with a Theory silk sleeveless blouse, but for some reason wasn't very happy with it (I don't know, looks fine in these pics, right?)

...so I changed into this striped tee before actually leaving the house.
Which version do you like best?

Well, better late than never, right? Even though it feels so long ago, I didn't take outfit pics during St. Louis Fashion Week for nothing, so here they are! Going into planning outfits for all of these events, I kept in mind that I'd be spending time with lots of fabulous bloggers and that I wanted to stay true to my own style without worrying about competing for the wackiest, most out there look.

From left: 1) Theory blouse via Saks Off Fifth, Paige jeans via Nordstrom Rack, and super old but favorite shoes - Isaac Mizrahi for Target. 2) Zara dress, H&M belt, B. Makowsky shoes via Marshall's. 3) H&M dress, flea market necklace, Isaac Mizrahi for Target shoes.

From left: 1) Zara top, flea market necklace, James jeans, Franco Sarto wedge boots via Marshall's. 2) ba&sh jacket, Paige jeans, H&M belt, Isaac Mizrahi for Target shoes. 3) Vince sweater via Nordstrom Rack, Forever 21 tee, Gap jeans, Lucky Brand boots. 

Maybe it was because I burned out a little on dressing up, but my favorite outfit to wear was the casual one I wore to brunch on our last day of events, on the left, above.  

There are a few other projects occupying brain space at the moment, so I will apologize again for the light blog posting! Hope you all are well :)
