Today's Everyday Fashion: Bright Red Boots

Inspiration: Couture Candy

Inspiration: Couture Candy

Striped blazer, graphic tee, red pumps

I may not be able to pull off bright red boots like Jaime King, but I figured “hey, I can do that with red pumps!” Normally I don’t love the boxy cropped fit of this navy striped blazer on me, but it works well in this outfit, similar to Jaime’s cropped fit on her jacket. I would nix the smaller gold necklaces (didn’t even realize I still had them on when I snapped the photo) and jeans without distressed patches would be a good option as well. I love the overall idea, and it’s one that’s easy to re-create!

Today's Everyday Fashion: Zippers

I can't get enough zipper details this fall, as my two latest purchases reveal. I didn't intend to pair this colorblock sweater and wool skirt together when I bought them, but the military vibe of both lead me to give it a try. I plan to pair the sweater with jeans this winter, and the skirt with a bow blouse or striped top. More zipper options under $100 below; is this a trend you are planning to try?

J.Crew blazer, LOFT top, Boden skirt

This tweed skirt has hints of pink and brown in the pattern, and yet, I'm not sure I ever would've put this outfit together without the inspiration photo! Last year I paired it with navy and camel (here), but I love the addition of pink. Also, one of my most-loved pairs of shoes, cognac pumps for under $100 below!
