This post was completely serendipitous. This past weekend I was planning out outfits to wear and shoot. And when it came down to the shoe, there was only one pair I was sliding towards. The Boss Boot. I got these white ankle boots at an Everlane sample sale on Friday morning, and they haven’t left my feet yet. It’s now Wednesday, and we are on day 5 of wearing them out and about.
And, maybe not to most people, but this brings actual joy to my heart. When I get something (sometimes on a whim) and wear it immediately and several different ways, I feel like I hit jackpot. Because it is fashion’s jackpot. Wearing something you love, over and over. And to add on, they are super comfortable. No blisters or pain for me.
So I decided to bring back the three way posts. Remember these? They are a major pain in the ass to shoot, but feel so effective. Because, indeed, we buy clothes and accessories to wear them as much as possible. They’re not doing us a service by staying on the racks. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care for them – but that’s a different story.
Lately, I’ve been buying in such a smart way. Can you tell I’m oh so proud of me? And these white ankle boots were a major buy. I sold the pair I had a couple of months ago, so my closet was ready for a new one. I honestly did not mean to buy anything from the sample sale and here we are. They were love and fit at first sight.
Casual: with a Knit and Jeans
This was my preferred look. If I could, this is how I would go every where. I love a chunky knit with a straight pair of pants (which will be next on my three way list). And this look was on point and exactly what a winter outfit needs. Also, looking ahead to SS 2019, I’m focusing on small pastel details.
Chic: with a Structured Blazer
I have had this blazer for quite some time, but haven’t had the opportunity to wear it. It has such a springy vibe to it, that any outfit felt wrong. Until these game changing white ankle boots. I’ll be sure to take note of this look for when warmer days arrive.
Grungy: with a Leather Piece
This was the look I was most unsure of. There was something about the balance of the top and bottom that seemed like it didn’t work. But it all comes down to angles and, I ended up loving the combination. The beanie was, honestly, due to the extreme cold that was giving me a headache.
