Coming Up Roses

Everyone likes roses, right? They've become an international love statement and now they are very much becoming a fashion statement. Roses are found everywhere from our denim to our shoes and in this case, roses and velvet are making quite the impression as an unlikely, but unforgettable duo.  

 

I'm new to the bodysuit scene. Discovering how easy a bodysuit can make your life is priceless. Especially a well fitting bodysuit that can match with ANYTHING! Pants, skirts, shorts, leggings, denim. Those are my kind of bodysuit! This beautiful, wine-colored, velvet one piece can go with so many options. In this case, I've got it paired with a favorite pair of charcoal distressed jeans, but I've worn it with just about everything. It's unique velvet texture and rose appliqués allow it to dress outfits up playfully, like destroyed denim or short shorts.

 

I had to go the extra mile when I found these gorgeous booties too! An exact match to the bodysuit, except in their champagne color which I actually find to be absolutely complimentary to the wine. (Who says champagne and wine don't go together? Please. They're cousins!)  

 

This entire look is matchy, but not over the top, and honestly just fun. I love the low neckline of the suit, the low-riding waistline of the jean and the lace-up fashion of the bootie. Apart from each other, the pieces in this outfit could be pretty bland, but together it's a funky, creative sort of harmony! And the colors will take you right into fall where berries and champagnes live on for quite some time. Of course you'll want to throw a jacket on at that time! Maybe a bomber with rose accents? Too much? Not enough? You tell me.  

 

This Louis Vuitton Double V bag would be a fit here in either color (it also comes in a light pink shade that is to die for). But act quickly on the Double V. As I've said before, she's nearly sold out worldwide! She's an unforgettable and dreamy little staple.  

 

What other stand out pieces do you have with rose accents? Are you a flower power child of summer too? Leave it in the comments, and hey, shop this look on my Instagram anytime 🌹

Boot Round Up

Clearly I've a bit of an obsession for a unique over the knee (otk) boot! I mean they make so many great styles and colors these days, how can you not be? I've been the shoe game diva for some time now. Would it not be my duty to bring you the best options possible? 

Right! So here are my faves right now. Crushed velvet. Faux suede. Denim. 

Lets start with denim. I love the look of destroyed denim. It looks great by itself or with fishnets underneath. Same goes for the denim otk boot. It allows you even more options because it extends all the way down to the toe, creating a chic line. Jeans alone can't do that. You can dress up a destroyed denim boot with a skirt or shorts as well. So if you want to feel comfy and casual, but look like a million bucks...reach for these. Incredibly priced by the way.  

Faux suede. I have these in tan and black, because they're awesome. Amazingly comfortable and wearable with anything. Jeans, leggings, pants, shorts, skirts, dresses. You name it, it can work with the right color otk boot. I love the tan because they offer a lighter daytime look. I often wear these with dresses or dark denim as pictured. The chunky heel makes it easy to walk in. Just LOVE these.  

Finally the crushed velvet wine colored otk boot. These are SO classy and lovely. I was shopping with my mom when I bought these...she said they were hideous. Can you believe that woman's nerve?!?! She was quickly corrected by about 20 passers by that complimented them on me...changed her tune pretty quickly! 😂 But seriously, these are a little more fashionably adventurous. So if you're cool with setting the trends instead of following, you can work these. They are SEXY. Period. I wouldn't wear these to church! But I'd wear them just about anywhere else. I find myself limited in what I can wear these with because the color is just so bold and beautiful on its own, you can't really compete. I tend to stick with blacks and greys to let these babies shine.  

If you've been paying attention to my Instagram Stories, you've learned that it is now even EASIER to shop my looks these days! Of course you can always sign up at LIKEtoKNOW.it and just like my IG pics, but now if you download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app you can screenshot my images and shop them right from the app. How cool is that? Has anyone tried it yet? How do you find it? I prefer the screenshots personally. Let me know what you like!
