The Snake Print Boots I’m Adding To My Wardrobe

Snake print boots have been trending for at least a couple years. I think I’ve finally found the pair that best complements my style. I’m simply not drawn to the natural snake print, especially when the print is splashed all over a tall boot. When I saw the Louise et Cie Tropical Snake Print Leather boot, though, I was smitten. There’s something special about the tawny color, the silhouette, and the block heel. You know you really love something when you start imagining all the outfits it could complement and complete before you even get it. That’s the situation with these boots.

Today, I’m sharing a basic fall combination that’d pack so much more style and flavor when these boots are added.

I think these boots are begging to be added to my closet, y’all. By the way, check out a few other snake print styles that’ve caught my eye at the end of this post.

The Perfect, Cozy Plaid Topper For Fall

No doubt, plaid is a safe and easy choice during the fall. It has fall staple status all over it. But, your plaid style choices don’t have to be ‘safe’ nor boring. This fall, we’re seeing hip variations on the plaid trend, from punk plaid to power plaid. Whichever styling you’re into, I’ve found the plaid topper that’ll help you nail the look every time. Meet the soft, cozy, and versatile Aururo plaid topper.

The autumn-hued colors holding down this plaid topper excites all my style sensibilities. They’re especially luxe-looking because this is a sweater knit. By the way, if anyone else has a wool sensitivity, you’d be thrilled to learn that this topper is wool-free and hence itch-free.

I wore it casually last weekend. Do you see how it transforms a white top and straight jeans? Imagine what else it can do! Plaid on plaid. Plaid with leather pants. Plaid over a dress. Get ready to see this topper a lot.

Questions about sizing? I’m wearing the topper in a size XS. It’s from Soft Surroundings, and their XS corresponds to a size 2 to 4. So, it fits true to that.

I’ve been wearing my taupe mules (see them here and here) on repeat, so I decided to bring in some reinforcements. This tan pair is such a beautiful, wear-with-everything nude. It’s 2 inch heel makes it an easy choice for everything from everyday moves to travel.

There have been some mixed reviews about the sizing of these mules. Once I tried them on, I understood what was at the root of that. The length of the shoes is definitely true-to-size, but the opening at the vamp is narrow, which may prevent your foot from getting all the way in the shoe. I wore mine all weekend, and the leather did relax a bit at the opening.

Geometric Prints for Fashion-Forward Style this Spring

Florals and dots are super cool, but there are other fabulous prints available for creating fierce spring and summer style. Geometric prints, in particular, are perfect for nailing a fresh and modern spring style. Triangles, octagons, and trapezoids may not have seemed all that interesting in geometry class, but on a print? They’re totally hip.

From an octagonal cross-body bag to a geo print dress, here are a few favorite styles.
