These Dr. Martens 1460 8-Eye Boots have been part of almost every look that I’ve shared on my blog the past few months. Partially because I am lazy to change my shoe for every single outfit. The reality is that I really love wearing this with just about everything – and if you haven’t noticed I’ve paired it with a lot of dresses.
When I initially purchased this oversized plaid jacket from Zara I had no idea how was going to specifically wear it. I knew that it would probably look cute with leggings and be a statement jacket since it is an oversized red plaid jacket. Although I felt that it was specifically best for Fall, I really wanted to force its way into my winter wardrobe.
How was I going to do that?
Here is a great Amazon outfit for under $50! Yup, you read that right – this look cost me under $50. When I purchased this top and the faux leather skirt I wasn’t anticipating them to be part of the same outfit. And since I can’t make a decision I allowed my Instagram followers to decide for me…

My hips are a lot wider then my very angled photos lead on. Luckily this skirt fits me perfectly, and I really enjoy the idea of wearing it in the winter.
These plaid pants. These damn plaid pants. Sixteen-year-old me would want them in every color. I’m thirty-one now, do I really think I can pull these off? Yes.
DUMBO really means Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass to most people or those who Google the meaning. For me, it always meant where my dad worked. He worked in this area that most people would admire – the cobblestone streets, the old brick buildings, the graffiti, the delicious food. What made his job even cooler is that he worked on the Brooklyn Bridge. Many have walked across it, but he has done that 100 times over and even up to the top of it. Not many can say their dad sent a selfie from the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge. Continue reading ““Chanel” Meets DUMBO”
‘Tis the season to be making wishlists am I right? Surprisingly I’ve struggled this month to come up with a list of things that I want. Maybe I’ve finally reached that point in my life where I don’t value materialistic things anymore? While I wonder separately about this pivotal moment in my life let’s jump into what I’m wishing for right now…
