friday's fancies #5: crazy about boots.

friday's fancies #5: crazy about boots.





it's that time again, ladies & gents... it's friday! and that can only mean one thing, right? friday's fancies! and this week, i have a lovely new banner that {av} made for me, which makes this whole thing even more fun (thank you!). this week's theme is centered around one of my very favorite aspects of cooler weather fashion: boots. and after all the posts i've been writing lately about the cozy aspects of fall, i decided to go a bit edgier with this one. i put together a look that i think would work well for a night out on the town with my girl friends. 

i'm envisioning karaoke, martinis, giggling, & endless picture-taking.

i wanted the look to be fresh, fun, playful, & daring (i know - that's a lot for an outfit to live up to), so when i saw these suede side zip boots from topshop, i was completely sold. i am absolutely loving the bright blue color & structured shape. i would pair these with a black dress, like the inexpensive one shown above, with either black tights or bare legs.

to give the look a little bit more edge, i'd throw on this brown vintage leather jacket with button detailing. yep, i always break the cardinal rule of no pairing brown and black (...and blue) all together in the same outfit. i've always liked the look of these colors combined, so oopsies... sorry i'm not sorry.

as for jewels, i was drawn to this lanvin leather & brass multi-chain necklace & these anita ko spike ball 18-karat rose gold diamond stud earrings. i think they're the perfect choice to play up this outfit's fun, carefree vibe, while also adding a bit of rockstar chic (although the price tag on these particular pieces of ear candy is pretty terrifying).

perhaps my favorite piece of this entire outfit is the bold & colorful paul smith clutch - i loved this immediately upon seeing it (and now i am starting to really need it). it would be the perfect size to carry my phone, camera, plastic, & nars wonder lipgloss.

have a lovely, fun, karaoke-filled weekend, everyone!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
