Style Spotlight: Suede Booties

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

As there's snow on the ground I've got a bit of time to buy boots for spring. I looked around quite a lot for the perfect pair of booties for me. This season I'm really resonating with suede. I know it's quite the hassle to clean, but I think the texture is a necessity in my wardrobe this season. So I bought two, an everyday pair and pair I could wear for nicer occasions.

I'm a firm believer in the wine, maroon, burgundy color scheme. Any season, any time of day, always. So when my old go to booties were worn down and finally ripped I bought the Clarks Womens Wine Phenia Cresent Suede Boots. My ex owned a pair of clarks, and he beat them to hell and back, had them for over a year and after a good cleaner they looked new. My everyday pair of boots should be a pair that last me a year or two right? A pair that are sensible, my ankles won't break, and will still look good after a year or two. A good investment. Definitely the "Hey Mom look at me, aren't you proud?" kind of booties. 

My second pair of booties though, that wasn't so much of an investment. After online shopping for a little too long, I came across the Chinese Laundry Break Up Peep Toe Bootie. It was more of an Oh! these are too cute, and on sale, click, purchase. I couldn't help myself, they're neutral and cute. They could be dressed up with a bell sleeve dress, or down with a top, cardigan and a pair of jeans. A classic cute bootie. 

I know suede booties aren't ideal for everyone, but I'm definitely giving it a try this season.

Off My Chest

It's been over a year since I've posted anything here. But hey, new year new me right? Well not really. I'm Megan I'll always be Megan and I need to come to terms with this. I'm not going to reinvent myself because I'm in college. I'm the same person I've always been and always will be.

Tonight was irritating, small comments tend to annoy me. And if too many things go awry I know that hey maybe I shouldn't go out tonight. I take it as a bad omen. Things kept going wrong, so you know what the universe may be telling me something, I'll stay in.

When I say things like bad omens, and gut feelings and being in tune with my surroundings people give me odd looks. I'm a spiritual person, I believe in mother nature, and karma, and I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. But if people realize these are my beliefs, I'm looked at differently. You have your beliefs, I have mine elsewhere.
