Trend of the Month Challenge: Boots & Booties

Top: F21 | Sweater: F21 | Jeans: Simply Vera, Kohl's | Booties: Betsey Johnson Ziah | Monogram necklace: eBay | Necklace: BaubleBar x Atlantic Pacific | Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: Kohl's | Earrings: Target | Rings: F21/H&M

At the risk of sounding like a surfer dude, or, you know, the turtle from Finding Nemo, since he's the only surfer dude I have any experience with, I was totally stoked when Marion announced that this month's challenge is booties. (Gnarly dude!) Since I've been obsessed with these Betsey Johnson beauties lately (here and here and here), I was looking forward to an excuse to bust them out again.

I jumped on the chance to take my BaubleBar x Atlantic-Pacific necklace out for its inaugural spin, but I was equally excited to snuggle up with my favorite white sweater and skinnies FOR THE LAST TIME EVER. Okay okay the last time for a month... because tomorrow I start my 30x30 and there are no plain skinnies in sight. I'm looking forward to pushing myself out of my comfort zone, but the prospect of a month without blue jeans is giving me hives.

Check back tomorrow (and, you know, every day in November) to see me wearing the same thing over and over again!
Just kidding. But seriously.

    1. Hahaha you would not believe the strugglebus I was riding trying to make the sleeves stay rolled. Slippery shirts do not a happy cuff make. #layeringprobs

    1. Thank you!! I have to say, I wasn't an ankle bootie person before (you know, cat people, dog people, ankle bootie people, it's totally common haha) but now I'm a total convert.

  7. The booties are so sick! Love the fringe and this trend of the month challenge. Those are so fun and a great way to meet other bloggers! Sarah from Sarah's Real Life did one a while ago and it was great. How do you get involved with this one???
