So, I admit it: spring, you tricked us! April fools came late! I really really was positive and “glass half full” about a steady stream of warmer days ahead, but it looks like the next few days may show some signs of an uptick in warmth. In the meanwhile, it’s thick wool tights. longer jackets, and booties for me! This past Monday kicked the week off with cozy, on-the-go workday chic, and keeping warm was at the heart of the look. Tucked away are my small beanie and leather gloves — I HATE being cold, so I’m always prepared for the worst!
My new Ciera Black Metallic Detail Chunky Heel Boots, courtesy of BOOHOO, have been my new favorite go-to, with a dose of static sparkle that can be admired from the front, and lusted after from the back. The best part? They are $50!! Amazing value– and I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve been getting on them, but let’s just saw the numbers are in my favor since I’ve been wearing them almost every day.
