As much as I love layering in the fall, it’s still too warm here to layer most days, so a simple lightweight sweater and jeans is usually my go-to combination. But to add a little personality to my outfit, I like to add a statement shoe.
There are so many good statement ankle boots out there, but these buckle ankle boots had me at hello and I love how they add some edge and interest to an otherwise super basic outfit. I’m also loving this perforated pair and this pair from Nordstrom.
When it comes to choosing a pair, stick with neutral colors like black, tan, or cognac so the embellishments really stand out, and then pair with your basics to let your shoes do the talking.
When we moved, I went through my closet and realized that my pullover sweater collection was all old and not in great shape, so I’ve been adding a few new sweaters to my closet. This one has a loose, boxy shape that makes it casual and comfy, it’s really lightweight but not see-through, and it’s under $40! Plus it comes in four other colors.
