The Ankle Bootie
my pick: the Seychelles Bootie from Nordstrom
why: I love the idea of an open boot, especially if I'm wearing tights. It can spice up the entire outfit. Plus I love the brand, Seychelles is affordable (comparably), and comfortable! $109
my pick: Armani Shades from Nordstrom.
*If I were really daring, and one day I will be, my next prescription glasses will come in frames like the ones on to the right.
why: I chose these glasses because I like the tint, they're not really dark. I love the print on the frames. These were also surprisingly more affordable than I thought they would be at $78.
The Boyfriend Jean
my pick: J Brand Boyfriend Jean. I think this is the perfect shade for a boyfriend cut.
why:I love the way the cuff hits, and the fact that there are not too many tears along the pants. *and i love the shoes* A little more pricy at $224 - has anyone seen similar ones for cheaper?
my pick: Gap Heather Blazer in grey.
why: I have actually tried this jacket on in the store, and it was so comfortable. With a little bit of cotton/terry material it wears similar to a sweatshirt or hoodie, with the style of a blazer. You can dress this up or leave it casual. $59
The Brightly Colored Coat
my pick: The North Face Crimptastic Hybrid Jacket.
why: I'm going to be practical, I live in Salt Lake City. While this coat may not be as fashionable as others, it's warm! I love North Face coats, and already have too many in my closet. This also shows the sportier side in me. I love sporty clothes, a tom-boy at heart. North Face stuff hardly ever goes on sale, and is always on a wee bit more expensive than competitve brands. $229
Chunky Knit Sweater
my pick: This Beauty from brownfashion.com
why: umm hello, how great does this look? I wish the price looked half as good. Has anyone seen something similar to this piece at all? Until then I'll just dream about this one. (seriously) $811
The Embellished Flat
my pick: LOLA from kurtgeiger.com
why: I think this would be a great punch of color to any tee and jeans. These shoes alone could dress up a lot of my outfits. $154
my pick: The N.Y.L.A. Extravaganza pump from heels.com
why: I first saw these and thought Valentine's Day. Wouldn't these be fabulous out on the town with your fabulous date? Agreed. $113
Wide Leg Pant
my pick: Seven for All Mankind Wide Leg at Nordstrom
why: I've loved this brand from the beginning. These just look like a fabulous work pant for me. They're dark and definitely have a dressy flare to them. $153
The Pencil Skirt
my pick: this Brocade Pencil Cream Skirt from coggles.com
why: this is unlike any piece I already have. I can already see the fun blouses I'd want to pair with this skirt, and possibly even the ankle boot from above? I might be getting ahead of myself, but this could make a great Easter dress. $122
