06 Dec Turning Heads Linkup-Trending Now: Dark Florals and Over the Knee Boots
Happy Turning Heads Tuesday! Have I told you that I can’t wait for the Holidays? I love giving gifts and can’t wait to celebrate. I decided to change it up a bit, but if you missed my Holiday LOOK #1, and Holiday LOOK #2, which was yesterday, please do check them out! I love dressing up for the season. I will be sharing more Holiday looks on the blog, so keep posted!
I truly do not venture into the mall, ( and certainly not at this time of year!) as I enjoy shopping on-line. There are those once in a while times, if I need to try the makeup at Sephora, or try on a dress at H&M that I will go there. Usually my hubby and I go there once in a blue moon, on Wednesdays, as that is when Firebirds has their Double Black Diamond Pineapple Martini special. This is how you get him to go to the mall..food and drinks!
Anyhow, the store closest to Firebirds is H&M and I don’t have to venture far. I went in the other day and really think the quality of H&M has improved over the years. I saw this dress and loved the pattern. Where I usually do not wear much black, I loved the purple and pink floral pattern and thought the length would be perfect with my Over the Knee boots.
I do not wear or buy into all trends, but these are several I have always liked. I paired the dress with some vintage inspired purple jewelry, my black buttery leather OTK boots by Vera Wang, and added color by pairing it with this rose colored moto jacket from Mango. I have been waiting to wear this, and with Charlotte’s temps the way they have been, the moto jacket is all that is needed. If you are not fond of wearing black near your face, a moto jacket in a complimentary color works out well.
I do enjoy wearing OTK boots and my favorite sillouette with them is either a shorter dress with tights, a sweater dress, or a mini skirt and blazer. One can wear them at any age! It is all about the proper proportion.
Are you a fan of dark florals? Have you tried Over the Knee Boots?
