With Thanksgiving behind us now, we can begin to prepare for the next set of holidays. This means decorating, cooking (and consuming) delicious food, and of course, picking out the best gifts for our friends and families. All these holidays help us reflect on what's really important: love.
I'm thankful to be home with my parents right now and looking forward to coming back for Christmas. I'm so lucky to have so many supporters like my friends, family, boyfriend, and my readers. I don't even know a lot of you and yet you believe in me and care. It is truly the most heartwarming thing to realize.
Since I adore fashion, I'm also thankful for sale items. (I'm probably Black Friday shopping as you read this). I'm thankful for cute clothing and young women with amazing style. And, I'm thankful for a good pair of shoes, but aren't we all?
I received this gorgeous pair of suede navy blue booties from SKECHERS just last week! I was so stoked that they reached out to me because I would have never in a million years thought I would have come this far with fashion blogging!
And, these shoes are honestly so amazing. They have a slight heel to them, which, you can usually feel when you walk, but with these, everything is effortless. They are so light, breathable, comfy, and, of course fashionable. I can walk around campus for hours on end in them with absolutely no problem or pain. And when I say this, I mean it. This is absolutely revolutionary for me because I have such bad feet and arches. Not to mention they are a quality product; wooden soles are my favorite thing.
They are also very easy to style with any outfit. Dress them up or dress them down: they will keep you looking runway-ready. The other day I wore them with an oversized plaid flannel and ripped white jeans. Yesterday, I wore them like this:
I decided to pair the wool plaid skirt from Urban Outfitters with these shoes because the navy tones in the skirt matched well. And I threw on my new little BDG jacket that I compare to a sheep's coat over my t-shirt to make it a tiny bit more fashion-forward. As a replacement for the cropped jacket, you could throw on a denim jacket instead.
