Sassy Details!

February 14, 2017


You can put a fresh spin on a classic with some bold details.

blogger over 40 styling zebra booties


Nothing is more classic than a cable knit ivory sweater, but add a few interesting details and watch the outfit come to life.

I’ve had these sassy Steve Madden booties for years and I don’t wear them often because honestly they’re not very comfortable. But when I’m feeling sassy, they are my go-to fun boots!  They’re so sassy that when I wear them, I try to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple.

I’m also wearing my hip Hudson raw-edge cropped-flare jeans.  These were such a smart splurge because I wear them all the time. They’re super comfortable and flattering.

And I put my new Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap on my new Kate Spade bag!  Do you like them together?   Tune in Friday eve to see the strap on a different bag!

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I love zebra print. Your link to the zebra pumps is very tempting. Thinking about them! LOL.
