Pick of the Week: Chilly Cool
I must admit I like warm weather better than cold, wintry snowdrifts. My one saving grace when the temps drop is that I love fall and winter clothing: boots with skinny jeans; warm, stylish sweaters and chic belted winter coats. Plus, I have more winter clothing than warm-weather clothing so the outfit possibilities are much greater!
Having recently purchased two new pairs of boots and one pair of gray booties to complement my boot collection I can say I'm a certified boot addict. The major benefit of wearing boots in my opinion is that they keep your legs far warmer than just jeans with flats! While I was out and about for a photo shoot recently I stopped in Cornblooms and spotted these incredibly versatile real and faux fur accessories for your arms and legs: check out these Omeez arm warmers with faux fur cuffs ($29) and faux fur boot wraps ($48) that you simply place over the top part of your boot. Voila: instant style cred!
One thing I've mentioned in the past in my blog posts and Live at Five appearances is that picking up accessories in general stretch your outfit dollar—for example, a simple black tank dress is transformed with a statement necklace, and similarly, your boots and tops can take a step up in glam factor with these luxe-looking faux and real fur pieces. You'll look like an heiress on a working girl's salary!
Neosens makes real fur versions that are shown in the photo at above left (shown worn over a Frye boot), which retail for a bit more ($110) but are soooo en vogue, too.
Also, be sure to keep your boots in tip-top condition with these handy boot forms by Cornblooms: they retail for $18/pair and allow your boots to stand up in your closet and keep their shape.
