This April weather has been quite brisk to say the least. It is so windy at times it feels like Winter is returning and quite frankly – I don’t have time for that! My birthday is approaching and I’d love for the weather to be around 80 degrees next weekend but at this rate that’s wishful thinking :(. This past Saturday I went walking around East Village. What I love most about this area is that you never know what coffee shops or restaurant you’ll find, fall in love with, and find yourself frequenting with friends to catch up on weekends! It was pretty chilly this day so I decided to wear my coveted Jamie jeans, with my denim jacket wrapped on my waist (also worn here and here), leather jacket (similar here, here, and here!), and suede Alaia ankle boots. I have wanted these boots (particularly the lace up calf hair) Alaia ankle boots forever and finally snagged an all black suede pair via The RealReal!
Ladies, this is a great website if you are looking for a pair of designer shoes at a considerably lower price. These particular boots are not one that are typically priced at less than $500 so when I saw them for under that – I had to have them! Shoes are really my weakness and you know why? It’s simply because it’s the one part of my outfit that I love to be eccentric at times and really make the conversation piece of simple outfits. I can wear a plain knit dress or distressed denim jeans and t-shirt and a signature matte lip or gloss and an AMAZING pair of heels and feel like I’m dressed and ready to take on anything! As born and bred NYC girl I think that plays into why I love shoes and feel as though they can carry me from day to-night – a great pair of heels can change your entire outfit, attitude, and set the tone for wherever you’re going.
What do you wear that makes you feel confident and sexy? Be sure to let me know in the comments below and keep up with my latest outfits via Instagram.
