This outfit I have been waiting to wear forEVER! Even before I bought all the pieces I was still anticipating wearing it. I saw something similar on Pinterest and was so determined to make it my own! Looking on Pinterest, I pinned this 14 weeks ago! That is how determined I was!
When I have an outfit in mind, it tends to just fall into place. I know what I want so I will not settle for something less, so if it takes me a little longer to find it then it is all worth it for it to be perfect. I finally found the right dress when I was in Old Navy looking for a dress for Thanksgiving. The dress in the picture is more of a bodycon, but I wanted something looser. I found the perfect textured, black shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves, and was loose yet somewhat fitted. The kind of fitted where when you walked it would form to your body rather than flow. (It was also 40% so what other convincing did I need).
Next I got the boots. I have been seeing these over the knee boots all over Instagram and I wanted them! My go to is Macy’s because I have a Macy’s card (seriously so dangerous). I looked up Steve Madden and there they were, the GORGEOUS, but only black! I wanted the gray I kept seeing. I tell you I stalked the Macy’s website almost everyday. Finally when I checked for like the 50th time, they had another color! The picture looked gray but the description said taupe. BUT THEY ONLY HAD SIZE 9! Someone must have returned them. I didn’t give up though, I kept stalking. Finally they had all the sizes, yet the picture still showed gray but the description said taupe. I knew they were different because I did my research on the Steve Madden website, fashion is serious, some research required (lol!). I ordered them anyways, and if they came in and were actually taupe and I didn’t like them, then I could return them. Again, these were on sale too or I probably would not have bought them. Well they came in and were the perfect color, I was actually glad they were not gray because the tone of taupe they are can go with pretty much anything!
Lastly the blanket scarf. I remember Audree from Simply Audree Kate, said last year I think that she got one from Amazon. I searched and found one for $7! It kind of took awhile to come in but once it did, my outfit was complete! I just needed a place to wear it, when the perfect opportunity came, my roomie’s birthday (which is actually today- Happy Birthday!) but we went to brunch yesterday at the Saddle Ranch in Orange. It was a hit! Check it out…
