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!

reading a mish-mash of things right now. I don't usually like to read more than one book at a time, but I am in a reading rut... and I...
