Color-blocked Neutrals & New Riding Boots

April 3, 2014
I styled this outfit around my Oryany color-block handbag that is quickly becoming my favorite bag.
(Instead of Where’s Waldo, we could start playing Where’s Rox and Lucky in my photos!)

I went with Gap Always Skinnies, such a wardrobe staple for me.  I added a black cowl neck sweater from INC and my ivory moto jacket to echo the colors in the purse.

I accessorized with mixed metal hoop earrings.  And of course big sunnies!

I also was excited to style my new Nine West American Vintage riding boots, recently bought at an end of the season clearance at DSW.  I love boots and always look for deals this time of year, but usually my size (7) sells out pretty quickly. I was thrilled to find this pretty pair!  And love the way they look with my bag!

Linking up for Tres-Chic Thursday!  And Fashion Item Friday!  Check out the fashion fun!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Looking good! How funny I just went to a writing day at a house that looked just like yours. Looks like a fabulous treehouse!

    Yes. Looking very equestrian. And exceptionally sleek and cool. Referential without being too literal. (Wish I was as good at that. I always hit people over the head with the horsey part.)

      Haha … you're so funny, Jan! I doubt you ever looked too "horsey" ….!!
