crops + boots.

with regards to personal style, i think it's important to take risks...dress outside of the box, as i like to say.
otherwise, we never change; and change is good.
take this cardigan from Patty's Closet, for instance. while i loved the [faux] leather trims and zipper details, the idea of a long in front, cropped in back style never really appealed to me. i tried it on anyways with an open mind, and to my surprise, i liked it. here's why it worked for me: i'm short. the cropped back elongates by showing off the entire length of my legs while still giving the illusion of a longer style in front. to further elongate, i threw on these tall platform boots from JustFab.
i'm glad i tried something different and found a
new favorite cardigan in doing so.

do you take risks or play it safe when it
comes to your personal style?
what did you try that was different from your norm?

JustFab Valletta boot.
love, love, love these boots. i chose the Valletta because it had a smaller calf circumference. i was unsure about the platform and 5-inch heel height, but it's comfortable and easy to walk in. this style seems to run a 1/2 size smaller which worked out perfectly for me. JustFab is ON right now; i love everything i've been getting. JustFab recently launched its LUXE line of genuine leather shoes. i purchased the remington and
eagerly await its arrival.

  5. I think it's so much fun to try new things, blogging has definitely gotten me out of my comfort zone, not just in terms of clothing but in my life in general. Love these boots, and that jacket is so cool!

  11. This totally worked for you! The detailing on the back with the zippers is gorgeous. You look like a hot mama! I am always open to trying new things. I can't think of anything that I took a risk on lately though. Now I am thinking really hard and it's too early in the morning :)
