It’s been a chilly winter here in the ATL. I’ve worn more sweaters this year than the last two winters combined. I guess it’s a good excuse to wear this adorable sweater dress though, right? I’m not a huge bell sleeve fan, but I can handle that they aren’t overly huge on this Eliza J dress. (Bummer it’s sold out, but this grey one is almost identical!) I like that the sleeves hit at my wrists instead of going any longer.
I’ve tried to wear these over-the-knee Vince Camuto Madolee boots as much as possible. They are actually comfortable, probably due to the lower heel and the chunkier width of the heel as well. I got these last summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale – yes, that long ago! – and now they are over $100 off of the retail price. If you have been eyeing these, I do recommend them. Just a few things to note: 1. My calf is about 15″ and these are a perfect fit. They get too tight if I try to wear skinnies with them, so I stick with leggings. 2. Size up. I always wear an 8.5, and a bunch of bloggers said to size up a half size and I’m so glad I listened. 3. These are the Foxy color, which look SO different on Nordstrom’s website. They look brown on the site and you can see they are more of a gray.
I’ve almost survived my busy season at work…only a couple more weeks to go. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. While working non-stop, I can’t tell you how much I’ve had these jeans and booties on repeat. I purchased them during the Nordstrom sale during the summer, and they were definitely A+ purchases.
I didn’t realize how much in my closet goes with this dark gray color of the Vince Camuto Karinta block heeled bootie. And since I’ve worn them so much, I can tell you with confidence that these are actually comfortable. They have a good amount of padding in the ball of the foot and with the thick block heel, I don’t have any heel pain at the end of the day (I tend to put my weight in my heels).
AG is one of my favorite brands, so I knew I would love these jeans. I have to say I listened to a blogger who tried them on and said to size up, and I probably should have ordered my typical size. Granted, yes, they are super skinny jeans and are snug when you first put them on, but they do stretch out while you wear them. I love the distressed hem on these…it’s even subtle enough for my casual office.
What’s also great about this post? These two items are on sale back to what they were during the Nordstrom sale this summer! So maybe it’s good I waited to share this post with you anyway 🙂 Happy shopping!
