This outfit is one of my favorite outfits to wear. I love casual wear because it’s just easy! There’s nothing hard about putting one layer over another. One is a neutral and one is a basic print. I need to master the art of layering but sometimes it’s just easy to dress how you normally dress. I dress for comfort and ease. I think as a mom, I have to resort to basics rather than mastering with leather jackets or midi skirts with pleated blouses. Ahhh, too confusing but doesn’t I won’t try.
What trend/style are you looking forward to try this year?

One of my purchases at the end of this summer season was this Banana Republic Sweater Blazer. It’s made of a terry cottom blend that is lightweight and perfect for the weather Houston has been having. With this outfit I wanted to try the Leg Warmer trend. But I think I failed at it. The Leg Warmers I have are a little schoolish, not trendy as I thought it would be. Maybe with the right outfit I can pull it off. I do like the overall outfit.
The hunt is over. Previously, I had written that I wanted Selena Gomez’s boots that she wore on Wizards of Waverly Place. I still don’t know what brand of boots she wore. But I found one almost like it!
It is the Steve Madden Candence. It comes in two colors.
Cognac and Black
The boots are super comfortable and stylish. It doesn’t show that there is a foldable cuff but it is an option. I got both Cognac and Black but only kept the Cognac. Even though the black is very similar to the boots worn on Wizards, I felt like I have too many black shoes already. The Cognac is a different color to spruce up my wardrobe.
If you are getting it, get the boots in a 1/2 size larger than the size you normally wear. I wear a 7 but decided to buy a 7.5, which turned out to be a perfect fit. I just thought if I was going to wear thicker socks (like knee high socks) than I would just get the boots in a 1/2 size larger. Worked out in my case.
I got the boots at shoes.com. It was my first purchase from that site and I’m reallly please. I haven’t gotten my refund from my return yet, but it’s still too soon. Shoes.com had the boots for $99.99 compared to zappos.com and endless.com at $129.00. Also I got 20% off with a coupon code VISA by paying with a VISA credit card. Also shoes.com runs a lot of specials as high as 25% off!
So my boots ended up only being $79 and some change. Free shipping. Not Overnight shipping like zappos.com or endless.com but I wasn’t in a rush to receive them. Overall very satisfied with my purchase.
