Zebra booties

March 3, 2014

Today I put together an outfit for Adrienne and Jill’s “How I Wear My” series.  This month’s focus was boots!  I love boots!  How could I not join in the fun? 

I’ve had these Steve Madden zebra booties for at least six years!  I still love them and feel so “bad ass” when I wear them.  They look great peeking out of the bottom of a boot leg or flare jean.  But I thought I’d really show them off with a pair of rolled up black skinnies (Old Navy Flirt).

I paired those with a burgundy INC sweater and an ivory Members Only moto jacket.

The collar necklace is Trifari.  And the studded clutch (a favorite that keeps showing up!) is from Nordstrom Rack.

Date night with the hubby next weekend?  Outfit all picked out!

Do you have a favorite item that just keeps surviving closet edits?  I have a few, including these booties.  They aren’t the most comfortable and I could never make it through a day of teaching in them, but they are just the right look and attitude for an evening out.

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @fashionshouldbefun ….
And don’t forget to check out the fun “How I Wear My” series.

    These booties are KILLER!! Oh my gosh…don't ever let them go, dear Dawn!! So what if they're not the most comfortable (they are waaay too fabulous to wear to school, anyways!!) I'm sure you'll get all sorts of admiring looks when you have your date night…and not just from your hubby, either!! XO

    Dawn, I also have leopard shoes that I have had for 10 years and still look good. I think these animal prints are classic. Great clutch and necklace !!

    Oh yes Dawn…you are fierce! There is something about animal print (of any kind) that gives me that same vibe. I always have at least 2 pairs of animal print shoes/booties in my closet. Here's to more 'fierce'!! Love that jacket on you too. Have fun on date night!
    xx, Heather

    Really, you should be so happy to be a tall girl ( for SO many reasons)
    'cause it takes your height to really rock those. And you do! Great outfit, and I know your huz will be thrilled to take you out and about in your very hot booties!

      Aww thanks! I love being tall now, but growing up I hated it! OXOX
