The heatwave many of us have experienced is finally easing up a bit, however, when these pictures were taken, it was 95 degrees. I still want to wear my boots, perhaps as a way to rebel against Mother Nature, or just because I feel like it! When I styled this mustard top and gold jewelry, I thought to take out my gold/brown snakeskin booties c/o Soft Surroundings last year.
I went shopping in H&M a few weeks ago and found this mustard crepe top for a mere $13. I do think the quality at H&M has gotten better, but it is one store in which I have to try on clothes. I most often wear an XS or S in tops there, and jacket, pants, are something I need to try on. I love this Fall shade, reminding me of the yellow from the fallen leaves.
I think of mustard as a color that looks great with golds, so my gold and brown snakeskin booties would be the boots of the day. I have been wanting to take these out for a spin! The slightly higher boot would go well with the cropped denim culottes I am quite fond of. I hope to do a post on jean styles for Fall soon, and if you want to show off your boots, these are a great choice! I love the released hem and the fact that the footwear also becomes the focus. Ankle jeans or step hem jeans would also have the same effect. I am wearing Wit and Wisdom jeans that you can find on Nordstrom’s site, but I got mine thrifting on Poshmark. I sized down, as they are stretchy, to a size 2. My regular jean size is a 4.
Other gold accents with the mustard top are my bauble dangling earrings, my gold cuff c/o Soft Surroundings and my gold ring.
My Brahmin bag was begging to come out from the pile of purses in my closet, and it is a favorite you will see much of on the blog. I need to start putting my purses higher in my closet, as my boy, Gibson is now routing through my bags! He figured if there were rawhides in one purse, maybe they are in all of them!
If you feel the need to add more print, add a scarf to the mix- I love to mix animal prints, so a leopard or snakeskin scarf would look great!
Are you someone who wears culottes? Would you be interested in learning about different styles of denim this Fall?
