Vintage Weitzmans

I bought these vintage Stuart Weitzman pumps almost 2 and half years ago at a great second hand store in Columbus.  The style is so different from the typical heels I buy, but I loved the unique look and bright color.  I recently wore them with a classic trench, a vintage envelope clutch, and bright nails.  These shoes are tricky to wear in the winter {I have yet to find a way to make them not look awkward with tights and a dress}, but I love them with skinny jeans - how would you wear these shoes?

Autumn Florals

Florals are traditionally reserved for spring and summer, but I love the concept of wearing them in the fall! I bought this floral coat about 2 years ago, and I love wearing it over a dress with boots.  I paired this with an all black ensemble, and luxe bag, and light pink nails.  I have a few more floral pieces I want to try to wear this fall/winter!

Autumn in Denver

I went to visit my boyfriend in Denver for a long weekend in October, and it was amazing! Colorado is so beautiful and I cannot wait to go back after the holidays.  We spent an entire Saturday exploring the downtown which was so nice, I love walking around an unfamiliar city without any specific plans! We came across some really cute boutiques and stores, but I stayed true to my vow and did not buy a thing! {Apertivo and wine don't count!} 

StyleMint dress, black tights from TJ Maxx, Tory Burch flats {Sperry's on the boy!}
