I’ve been on the hunt for some new cropped flares for a while but I just couldn’t find any that were exactly what I wanted. I was looking around Urban Outfitters one day and saw these cropped corduroy flares and thought I’d try them on to see what the fit was like. It was perfect! I was so pleased, they were on the cheaper end of others I had been looking at for sure. So glad I snapped up a pair. The cropped length is really good for showing off cute shoes, like these boots. I’m sure these boots are familiar to long time readers. They are my beloved Rochas boots I got four (?) years ago and I wear them to death. The kind of shoe I wish I could have bought two of at the time, because eventually they will be worn to shreds and I will be devastated.

An outfit made up of mostly things I’ve had for a long time…except for this amazing Chanel-inspired rainbow boucle jacket I picked up at Vintage Martini recently. It’s so much fun, I’ve been dying to wear it. A lot of color going on with this look I’m wearing and I’m okay with it…with a jacket this fun, you have to go a bit wild!

I knew I had to have these velvet Tibi boots when I first saw them a few months back. Crushed velvet acid orange kitten heel boots? Sounds right up my alley. I ordered them as soon as they became available and they were everything I hoped they would be. I own so many weird 70s and 80s kooky granny dresses and these boots are the perfect juxtaposition for styling them. I also love these with cropped frayed flare jeans and rock tees with an oversized blazer. I threw them on with some dangly earrings and an old favorite vintage dress for some wedding meetings on Monday.

I could not love them more. I haven’t been finding many shoes I go bananas for lately, so to feel so fulfilled by a shoe purchase makes me quite happy as devoted shoe lover. A boot like this is so unusual that it can’t go out of style. I am now wanting the gorgeous dark teal version of these boots too! A girl can dream. Definitely my pick for “shoe of the season”!
