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!

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.

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.
