Tall, Rugged, Slouchy

This week's IFB project is about boots, also known as my one true love besides trench coats.  

The assignment was to blog about our boot-choices for the upcoming fall, and as much as I adore all the cute ankle boots that are in style this season, for me it's not a boot until it covers half of my leg. 

These Copo De Nieve suede boots do the trick:

But what makes them so perfect is the rugged and slouchy look. 

The only downside is that I still have to buy them, but in my mind I'm already wearing them with a short dress and fun overknee socks.

Check Mate

While I wouldn't call this look a steal, I'd love to steal it right off Lily Collins.  

The Tommy Hilfiger ensemble is the perfect mix of preppy and edgy:

If you're looking for a more affordable version I'd start with these ASOS shorts:

...and dress up a basic shirt (try H&M) with a little scarf or bow to recreate the necktie look.

Fall Fever

Even though summer's still at it's high, I find myself longing for my fall wardrobe, and of course a couple of new items in the form of...

...a classic,

Timberland Noreen Boat Shoes

a trend,

GAP Camo Dress

a splurge,

and a statement:

Kate Spade Terry

What's on your fall wishlist?

Anchors Aweigh

I found the perfect pair of pants.

The fit is a dream, the material is sturdy enough that they don't lose their shape, but stretchy enough to make them as comfortable as a pair of leggings. And the best? They are less than 25 bucks:

And if the reasons above didn't convince you, the adorable  anchor print should.

Fins and Tails

No matter if your Shark Week style requires a party dress or the coolest coffee table ever, you'll find it right here:

And if you still don't have enough check out last year's Shark Week themed Hump Day Homework.

Bite Me

Some people look forward to their Birthdays or Christmas, but my favorite time of the year is Shark Week! And no better way to kick it off than with this extra sharp manicure:


Tip: if you don't have a steady hand to paint the bite marks on, just cut a white or silver nail sticker into a jagged edge and put it over a navy base, file the rest off, apply a top coat, et voilĂ  Shark bite nails.

Pineapple Express

What are the odds? The day I finally decide to put on that crazy print romper I got last summer,  IFB challenges us to write a post about our favorite prints.

I usually prefer solids over prints, and I have to admit that this River Island romper was a joke gift from my mom in an attempt to mock my fondness for pineapples. But since it was rather hot today, and all my shorts were in the laundry I figured why not...

To make the tropical print a little more town friendly I paired it with brown Sperrys and a simple linen cardigan.  And lets just say I may have found a new appreciation for tropical prints.

How fantastic is this minimalistic  look from Zara?

 Or these nude ASOS pumps:
