If I lived in a cooler climate youâ€™d see me in this every single weekend. Thereâ€™s nothing better — and more comfortable! — than a greatÂ v-neck (I love a grey in the fall), the coziest cardigan, my favorite denim, and the perfect and comfy leather black booties are all style essentials. You can mix and match these pieces — swapping out the denim with black pants to make it work appropriate or pairing the black boots with a cable-knit sweater and leggings for an outfit some comfy itâ€™s like youâ€™re wearing pajamas out in public.
About these boots: theyâ€™re by Naturalizer! Gorgeous, right? My boots need to be made for walking so I love that these are so durable, with aÂ really comfortable footbed. I get boots every gazillion years so even this Florida girl typically invests in a good pair or two, perfect for cool days here (I love them with a dress or skirt), and for traveling. Naturalizer asked if Iâ€™d like to style them for a fun blogger challenge and contest called “Style at any Age.” Starting today at 9 am you can head to Naturalizerâ€™sÂ FacebookÂ page to see how a blogger in herÂ 20â€™s, 30sâ€™s (thatâ€™s me!), 30â€™s and 40â€™s style the boots, and then you can vote your favorite (ahem!). I personally love seeing how different women style the same piece soÂ my hope is that you find some great inspiration from the contest, too.
Fun/random fact: Iâ€™m 5â€™3 and yet I wear a size 9 shoe. Doesnâ€™t make sense, I knowâ€¦
tee: old navyÂ (the absolute best, and just $5!) // cardigan: â„… white plum (similar)Â // jeans: j. brand (similar, plusÂ get 25% off with code FAMILY25) // boots: â„… naturalizer // tote: ann taylor (this seasonâ€™s version) // necklace: i love jewelry // bracelet: â„… baublebar
Can we talk about my pretty little initial necklace for a second? Iâ€™m such a sucker for dainty necklaces and this one — which looks just like a designer versionÂ — is so pretty. In full disclosure I now work with thisÂ company called I Love Jewelry through my PR firm, howeverâ€¦ Iâ€™ve pretty muchÂ nerded over the brand and its jewelry designer-owner for about four years first so itâ€™s definitely true love.Â Iâ€™m currently obsessed with her game day tassel necklaces (go gators!), this little state necklace, and these David Yurman-inspired bracelets (under $20!) as well as this awesome monogrammed sweatshirt. Great buys, right?
