I love them. I love, love, love, love LOVE them. They are the Short Carmen Harness boots, and they are fabulous. The finish of the leather is a little more rugged, the sassy harness and upturned toe add a cowgirl flair, the 2.5 inch heel is just enough to make you feel a little more pulled together than usual, but not so tall that it makes your feet hurt, and basically they’re perfect. I really want to wear them with little sundresses, but I left them all at school, so I couldn’t take any pictures of that for you guys. Oh, and I got these from Zappos. Which I do love, but UPS took FOREVER to get them here. And then literally dropped them off an hour after I left for the airport to go to Oregon for the weekend.


However, I did do two outfits with my new babies.

In this first one I’m wearing a Walter jacket, 7 For All Mankind jeans (my new Gwenevere ones!), a J. Crew tank, and the Frye boots, of course. I got the J. Crew tank for $25, and it was originally $70. Score! It’s an olive green base with tons and tons of bronzey sequins stitched on. It’s a little big on me, but I love the heavily gilded look of it too much, I couldn’t turn it down. I paired it with the leather jacket to give it some shape, and then I think the cowboy boots give it all a rugged twist that makes it all very rock and roll, no?


The top here is ASTARS (gifted), the necklace is F21, and the jeans are 7 For All Mankind.  I’m actually going to be dying the jeans darker sometime this week (hopefully) but I really like these boots with bare legs and a very simple outfit, because I think they can speak for themselves.


Another thing I got over the weekend? Spanx. Specifically this pair. They are amazing. I don’t know how I lived without them. I got them at Nordstrom Rack for like $30. They had the Spanx tights too, which are great. Definitely go check that out if there’s a store near you.

What do you think about these outfits?
