1 Shoe, 1 Trend, 3 Ways

1 Shoe, 1 Trend, 3 Ways

Baby, it's cold outside! Too damn cold that is. I am not built for this weather. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it *stomps feet and cries*. Well, enough of that. There isn't much we can do about the weather besides dress appropriately. Working in a shoe store has helped me figure out that the best way to stay warm in 20 (and below) degree weather is to wear cashmere socks and tall boots. Not the cheap boots either, you invest in a pair of well-made boots that will last you more than one winter season. Now I am usually a cheap skate but after trying on a pair of the 5050 Stuart Weitzman boots at The Shoe Hive, I decided I had to have them. And I could not be happier with my purchase! They are truly the best sleek black boot I have ever owned. And if you have narrow calfs like myself, you don't have to worry about the bagging and empty space. All selling points for me. 

So after falling in love with the 5050s, I tried on the Lowland thigh high boots and dropped my jaw to the floor. They were just as perfect. Ugh! They wrapped effortlessly around my leg and thigh and I instantly felt warm and cozy with them on. So me being a crazy college kid, I decided to purchase them as well. I know some of you may be shaking your head but I believe they both are a GREAT investment. So to make myself feel better, I have created 3 different looks with the Lowland to show you all and myself how far they will go in my fall and winter wardrobe. I also incorporated the funnel neck trend we have been seeing this winter because I find it very flattering with my short hair cut. Welp, lets get started!

Look 1: The simplest of them all which is obviously my favorite out of the 3. This knit funnel neck dress by Mango is the perfect staple item for the cold weather. You can style this dress in so many ways-- belt it, throw on a blazer, a sweater vest, layer it with jeans. For the purpose of this post, I decided to keep it minimalistic with a black cross body and the Lowland thigh high boots. The dress will fall slightly over the boot so tights are not necessary. 

Look 2: A very Velma inspired look. The school girl skirt adds so much character and aesthetic to the outfit. The high low sweater will give a bit more shape to the outfit as the A-line skirt could be slightly unflattering in fit. Paired with black tights and the Lowland for the chicest school girl look. 

Look 3: On the go and unbothered. This cool thrown together outfit is for the Uptowner. The cold weather can truly put a damper on your mood. These essential pieces are great to add into your wardrobe because eventually you will need them for an outfit like this one. Super easy to style and no one would ever know you have 3 day old hair. 

These are 3 great looks to show you how a chic well-made boot can completely change your winter wardrobe. Now don't get me wrong, a Sam Edelman riding boot would still do the trick but you can't beat a 5050 or Lowland Stuart Weitzman boot. 

Trust me!
