Victoria’s Picks For Winter Boots


via Bird is the Word

Picture this: a half-mile walk through two feet of snow in -20 degrees wearing ballet flats. Unfortunately, this was a reality for me last year during one of the coldest winters in Illinois history. During the winter, I often find myself defaulting to the same pair of boots every day. My other shoes are either too skimpy (read: aforementioned ballet flats) or they are made of a high-quality material that would be ruined by snow. It’s difficult to find winter boots that aren’t ugly, versatile to be worn with a variety of outfits, and won’t break the bank.

I’m on the lookout for the perfect pair this winter to add to my arsenal of winter shoes, and I thought I would share some of my favorites with you. Don’t forget to throw on your favorite pair of wool socks with these boots too!

How To Style Your Cut-Offs And Tights This Season

Dress your cut-offs up with a button-down collared shirt or a sweater. If you’re trying to go for an edgier look, pair them with a leather jacket, some booties and a beanie. For a bohemian look, pair your cut-offs and tights with some fringe and knee-high boots. If you’re trying to be more casual, cut-off shorts and tights (whether they are patterned, sheer or solid) are a definite must have this season!

Fall Trend Alert: Tall Boots

via Glam Radar

Since the temperature has dropped, it seems as if the tall boot is everywhere. Suddenly, girls are strutting down sidewalks in long knee-length boots in order to keep themselves warm. The tall boot is great because its material is functional; it also accentuates the leg in order to make it seem longer. It alludes to height because it reaches to the knee and/or thigh (depending on the boot). The tall boot is undoubtedly a valuable fall shoe trend. So, if you’re looking for something stylish, warm and practical,  you should try this shoe.

What To Buy At Nasty Gal Right Now

I love checking out Nasty Gal for fun, quirky pieces to add to my wardrobe. I love that I’m able to incorporate a lot of these pieces into my work and play wardrobes, and the prices aren’t too bad either. And for fall and winter, I’m already building up quite a shopping cart/wishlist. I’ve been looking for the perfect pastel coat, and this coat (pictured above) is a perfect dusty rose option for fall/winter.

I am loving this Dot Com Fuzzy Cardigan—this thick, graphic print would look great with a chic leather skirt, like the Pistol Leather Midi. I also love the Mod-inspired graphic dot pattern—it reminds me of Dear Creatures’ Fall 2014 collection, too.
