New Fashion Goodies: Boots, Coat, Jeans & More

It's been way too long since I last did a nice, lighthearted "look at the stuff I got!" post, AMIRIGHT?! Most of the below items are things that have actually been in my wardrobe for a couple of months now, but - heyooo - I am a little far behind with blogging things. Perhaps now is the first time that my mood has been conducive to sharing something as carefree and brainless as a goodies blog... so let's ride that wave before it dries up, shall we?!

HERE WE GO!

Roxy Mariposa Boots
I shit you not, it took me about 3 years to find a pair of fashionable boots that suited both my tastes and my needs. When I spotted these little ladies at my local Off Broadway Shoes, I figured that they must be too good to be true - that they would end up being uncomfortable or something. BUT THEY'RE NOT! I have walked so many miles in these boots, and they've never given me a single bit of trouble. I'm even thinking very seriously about buying a second pair as a backup. I love the light fleecy lining, the slouchy feel and the rustic looking buckles

Wait Up! Boot
These boots were an impulse buy thanks to a flash 50% off sale from Modcloth. Riding the high of the successful Roxy boots, I simply couldn't resist getting a new pair of black boots to accompany the new brown ones. These Wait Up boots are a littttle bit big on me, but adorable nonetheless. I love the buttons up the side and the woven lining that pokes out of the top of the boot.

MIA Clarissa Flats
Lady Confession:  In general, I am not a fan of flats. They just don't do it for me, style-wise, nor do I really care for the way they look on me. However, recognizing that they are a handy thing to own in the event of an "oh my god, these heels are KILLING me" moment, I finally caved and bought some recently. Mind you, I still don't like them very much. But as far as flats go, these sparkly rhinestone-covered black ones seemed as inoffensive as possible.

Danton Coat from BB Dakota
Ok so I don't mean to startle you, but people have been pooping themselves over this jacket everytime I wear it. Friends, family members, complete strangers... even blind people can sense that I'm wearing an amazing coat and give me compliments on it. It's a woven wool blend with a generously sized fold-over collar, a cape-like feel, an ombre knit, and nice deep pockets (which, believe it or not, were missing from my last "nice" winter coat). I can also pull up the collar around my face when I get too chilly. This jacket has definitely been the standout MVP purchase of the last couple of months.

Merona Tunic
My sister Mallory got me this sweater tunic for Christmas and DAY-UM did she hit the nail on the head!! She totally gets my style and always picks out things I like. This tunic is a knit of speckled white and black with slim fitting arms and a SIMPLY delicious cowl neck. I'm obsessed with it. The only problem will be trying to keep myself from wearing it every single day.

Merona Knit Lace Infinity Scarf
Mallory also gave me this infinity scarf, except this one was a birthday present. Believe it or not, my first infinity scarf! And goes perfectly with my white and black Danton coat.

Old Navy Rockstar JeansI have a bad feeling that these jeans give me the dreaded "long butt", so I have barely worn them out of the house yet. Maybe if I just do about one million squats, then I'll feel confident enough to wear them.

DAILYLOOK High Waist Vegan Leather Leggings
So maybe I didn't need to own the shiniest pair of vegan leggings in the world... but I do now, nonetheless. And these are most definitely going to require nerves of steel to wear in public. Or a shot of tequila. I MEAN. AM I SERIOUS WITH THESE THINGS? Where will I even wear pants such as these??? All I can say is that 2015 better have some really weird night clubs in store for me or else these pants are going to give me a raging case of purchase regret.

Ok well there are definitely some items that I've overlooked that aren't being included in this blog, but we've gone far enough haven't we? Let's end with the vegan leggings that may never see the light of day.

  1. Look at you, rocking the gray! I love that Wait Up Boot, so much that I may have to look into the Roxy boot. I'm always on the hunt for a good, low-to-no-heel boot that fits!

  3. I love those Roxy boots! So much so that I tried to score some via your link, but only size 6.5 is available. Darn. That coat is also HOTT but seeing as how I hate winter and I'd prolly wear it thrice this year, I'll have to just admire yours. Hit me up the next time you're getting classy in the Berks so I can see it in person! Also-- can my whole family move into your apartment? I think we need to get out of here! Thanks.
