Mom Style: Ankle Boots for Spring


     I promised a post on these boots awhile back, and here it is! I purchased them at an H&M in Denver, and they are probably one of my best buys ever. Black ankle boots are an essential for almost any wardrobe. They are super versatile, and have quickly become a "basic" ever since ankle boots rose to popularity around 8 years ago. I've had a few pairs over the years, but these are my most favorite. They are a dark black suede and with a solid block heel and a tall boot shaft (as far as ankle boots go), they are also my most comfortable pair yet. The block heel and boot shaft provide so much support and stability, it barely feels like you are wearing a heel.

     I decided to pair them with my crop flare jeans, considering the cropped style shows off the boots so well, and a small t-shirt I also picked up in Denver!

      Side note: the heels on these are a little over four inches, so I end up at around 5'11" in them, which in my opinion is another perk because I don't hate being tall.

To Get Ready for Thanksgiving

     Sometimes, I put way too much thought into what I'm wearing for certain events. I just like to know ahead of time so that I don't have to think about it day of. This is especially true for holidays, like Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving day I'm too busy trying to wrangle Bailey and get her ready for her grandmas house, while also making up some homemade cranberry sauce (recipe coming soon!) to think about my ensemble. Planning ahead has been one of the biggest lessons I've learned since becoming a mom. Life just simply does not work for me without it! Now, I have this wonderful little space on the internet to record my inspirations! This gives me all the warm and fuzzy feelings. I am by no means a high fashion blogger, but I do follow them (see Sea of Shoes, Collage Vintage, and Song of Style), so I can appreciate a photo of an outfit that you love.

     For my Thanksgiving outfit, I'm mostly thinking in terms of my favorite fall colors (see above). Those mainly being mustard, orange, and bright red, I have a few options. I'll probably end up choosing mustard and red. Those are the two that my eye keeps gravitating towards. I'm envisioning this beautiful yellow blouse I stole from my sister a couple of years ago paired with a red lip, cozy cardigan, and dark skinny jeans. Add in some ankle boots, and I'll be set!
