Boots

What Mood are YOUR Boots In?

Sassy Sophistication
Boots are by far my favorite kind of footwear..(as most who know me are aware I’m sure) They can turn even the most casual of outfits into a knockout ensemble. They give you attitude, confidence, and that unmatchable feeling that you can conquer the world.They bring out that spring in your step and a sassy sway in your hips and are a must for every fashionista. I love to collect boots, because each boot that I own expresses a different and unique aspect of my personality. I’ve labeled my first boot (picture above) as “Sassy Sophistication” because I feel the stiletto design portrays the sophisticated classy woman who wants to keep her inner rocker sassy fashionista intact.
Barely Office Appropriate
These ankle boots are absolutely amazing. I’ve names them “barely office appropriate” because I feel that they are the perfect boot to wear to the office when you are felling un-containably stylish, but still need to keep it appropriate for day to day office interactions. The color will go with just about everything, and the cute little platform gives you that extra oomph!
Cocktail Boots
These boots are country, meets socialite, meets hot night out on the town! I absolutely LOVE the stud detail, and the adorable swirl designs give it a very “I’m sexy now come and get me!” kind of energy. I would wear these boots when I feel I can conquer the world. I’ve named these “cocktail boots” because I can invision myself showing these off on a night out, they would make a great addition to any “night on the town” ensemble.
The Giving Boot
I’ve always been a huge fan of Tom’s shoes, great mission, great company, and a great way to justify spending 100 dollars on a pair of wrap cloth boots! For each shoe purchased from Toms, the donate a pair of shoes to a child in need, and they are INCREDIBLY comfortable not to mention stylish, the perfect addition to a boho chic ensemble!
The First Fashionable Rain boot
I bought these Hunter Rain boots during the annual rain season in Santa Barbra, and I have to say, they are the most fashionably practical boots I have ever purchased. These adorable rain boots have a very girly and slender design contrary to most typical “Man boot” style rain boots. They are extremely durable, and make any outfit fashionable (even if it’s not raining!) Hunter also offers what they call a “welly sock” a fleece boot sock that keep your tootsies warm and dry, but also adds a much desired aspect of personality to the boots. The Welly socks, that come in may different colors and designs, fold over the top of your rain boots to personalize the look!
Modern Cowgirl
Ankle boots seem to be the newest fad when it comes to boots, and I have to say they are quite appropriate for just about any kind of outfit. These boots in particular are the prefect balance between cowboy boot, and femininity. I’ve named them the “Modern Cowgirl” boot because they emanate the classic style of a traditional Cowboy Boot, and the distressed red leather is quite a popular style these days. A Great color that can be both dressed up and dressed down!
Thigh High Sophistication
I saved the best for last…Thigh High boots are the ultimate expression of sexy style. They give you amazing confidence when you walk into a room, and are a perfect addition to even the shortest of mini dresses. I love to wear boots like these at the office, shopping on State Street, or for a night out on the town! These are the type of statement shoes that make an outfit unforgettable!

That Little Something Extra: Accessorizing for the Boho Chic

I recently read an article that quoted one of Coco Chanel’s most famous fashion tips…”When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on.” Now I would never suggest that my fashion expertise is anywhere near the likes of fashion icons like Coco, but I believe that exhausted cliche statements, such as these, may be open for interpretation.

Now I am assuming that most who read this little fashion tip would think “less is more”, but I always say More is More! Layer, layer, layer! Especially when it comes to accessorizing, layers give depth, they give meaning, and they create mystery. On this beautifully windy afternoon, I braved the winding trails of the Goleta Butterfly Preserve, in my comfy forest green sweater tights, layered with an ultra long olive tank top, and light draping green blouse on top. Because my outfit was relatively simple, plain neutral earth tones, I relied on my accessories to make the look stand out.

The Circle Scarf has to be one of my all time favorite inventions, modern, chic… and might I add extremely fun to play with on a windy afternoon atop the Goleta Bluffs, overlooking and endless forest of fluttering Monarchs. It gave me that extra little bit of warmth, without taking away from my summer day boho ensemble. Now, that scarf was “the last thing I put on”,but I didn’t take it off,  and I didn’t stop there. I added a high-waisted belt, several Boho Bangles, and a beige and beautifully beaded Wrap Band. And I wore them all.

My Accessories always give me that little something extra, even the smallest accessories can dress up the most casual of outfits. That little some thing extra, those little extra pieces you add onto your outfit as you walk out the door, become the defining qualities of your mood and your style. So don’t take off that extra scarf you added, put on another necklace, maybe a ring….Why not?

The sun was setting, just as we finished our walk through the Butterfly forest.  We got distracted by this amazingly bright green patch of clovers, and stopped to soak in the beauty of another classic SB sunset, dressed and accessorized for the perfect occasion.

Thigh-High Boots and Lacey Tights

My favorite pair of boots are my incredibly worn yet classically beautiful light brown, zip up thigh high boots. They zip all the way up the back from the bottom of the heel to the back of my knee and have the potential to make virtually any outfit into a boho chic fashion sensation. I wore these fabulous boots along with one of my favorite repurposed vintage dresses made by Nullify Anew, for a beautiful Wednesday afternoon at the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Santa Barbara. This dress is fabulous with it’s bright print and button up style, making you feel girly, sexy, and stylish all at the same time. Bright accessories like glasses, necklaces, and bracelets help complete the look. To carry all my necessary items, I brought along my vintage leather and coral tweed cross body doctor bag all the way from a small boutique in France.

While I would never complain about the bone chilling 60-75 degree weather in Santa Barbara, it does tend to get windy and a bit chilly towards sunset, so I brought along my fabulous cream crocheted sweater vest. I love the versatility of vests, giving you that extra layer without all that bulk. To tie together my Bohemian look I wore the cutest cream lace tights. They gave me just the right amount of warmth while still letting me feel feminine in a dress. The Botanic Gardens are hard to describe in words, a short ten minute drive from the hustle of State street, and you are transported to a different world. The Rainforest exhibit is like something out of Pans Labyrinth, with it’s enormous moss covered trees, trickling creeks, and mysteriously cascading paths. I was nostalgically transported to my childhood past, playing in the trees and jumping across ponds. I didn’t even care that my most fabulous boots had become muddy boots. If you have thirty minutes to spare, you have plenty of time to explore the wonderful serenity that this natural preserve has to offer.

An afternoon spent frolicking by a creek in the foothills of Santa Barbara is the perfect way to wind down during the current trend of unusually warm winter weather in California. I find that it is in the best interest of personal serenity to seize this opportunity to be outside as often as possible while the weather still permits; It is still cool enough to layer varying colors, textures, and patterns while warm enough to shed those layers in the sun




Wearing a bolo tie, billowy blouse over a short dress, with tights and short boots (I just can’t with the term “shooties”) for a walk in the woods may seem silly to some, but The Unconventional is at the root of a bohemian lifestyle. I feel that accessorizing with my favorite vintage bolo tie adds a touch of Southwestern ruggedness to my otherwise delicate ensemble. This worn-in style is mirrored at the bottom of my outfit by noticeably muddy, yet classic, black ankle boots. These boots, by the way, have made it through my relentless careless and spontaneous exploits. They have been forced to endure torture simply because they not only coordinate with most of my outfits but are also incredibly comfortable for walking, stomping, and general hooligan behavior. In fact, they are currently so muddy because I wore them to a mountain party over this past weekend. Yes, that is exactly how it sounds – a group of young revelers setting up a generator-powered DJ set in the middle of the woods on a bitterly cold and foggy January night to dance until they can’t take anymore. The fog was a certain kind of mystical presence that united everyone in awe and fear that it would soon turn into rain. Now, I look down at my muddy boots and am reminded of the night that I danced amongst the clouds.
