Comfortable Boots and Striped Long Vest
(Not a sponsored post)
Today's styling showcases a rich dark brown top, pants and boots with a grey/brown striped long fringed vest. You have seen the vest on the blog before when I styled a Southwestern look pairing the vest with corduroy pants.
The stars of this style show, though, are my new Franco Sarto knee high boots. They are a recent birthday gift from the Mr. and I absolutely am thrilled with owning them! Not only are they stylish to look at but they are very comfortable! The gold buckles really add a nice touch to the overall look. I was lucky enough to find these on sale at Stein Mart, but the link I'm sharing is to Amazon. (Not an affiliate). When I bought these boots I told the Mr. that he had bought me my birthday gift and then I hid them away in my closet until my birthday came. We do this a lot for birthdays and Christmas. We each pick out our gift and then give it to each other to wrap for birthdays or Christmas! After almost 35 years of marriage, we have found this plan works well, although the element of surprise is taken away. We always like what we get, though!
The colors of the vest add such a nice contrast to all the brown. To me this is a perfect color combination together.
This extra long Paparazzi necklace adds a touch of sophistication to the look. The necklace is called "Enmeshed in Elegance." The chunky brown bead bracelet adds nice balance, also. The boots and vest support chunkier and heavier jewelry. Balance is important when deciding what jewelry to pair with clothing.
The Mr. did surprise me with some beautiful flowers for my special day.
And he also brought home this decadent chocolate cake. Oh my, it was delicious!! And, definitely worthy of being called decadent! I haven't met chocolate I don't like, but this cake has quickly become my favorite chocolate delight. I wish you could smell the deep and rich chocolate aroma.
