Are you feeling nude? Then do I have the shoe just for you! With it’s criss-cross leather strap design, this shoe makes its own statement without having to say it.  I styled Ang in a BCBG tunic dress with a unique print, that I also think catches some eyes. I paired the dress with the Chinese Laundry Love Me heel. You just can’t go wrong. I added a few bold bangles, a necklace and some earrings to polish off this look.

Our second round is up for the Sorel Joan of Arctic boots! I’d love to hear which one is your favorite look, so please share!

LOOK 1: PLAID STRIKE

When I saw those leg warmers I had to create a look just for them.  Ang is wearing a pair of black tights and leg warmers that hit right below her knees.  I love them with the Joan of Arctic boot, very appropriate to add depth. Then I added a shinny plaid jacket to top off this look.  I put a maroon belt around the jacket with a big buckle for detail. The knitted hat was another necessary object along with the black bag.  This look is perfect for a rainy day!

LOOK 2: BLUE BAYOU

In this look I kept the same black tights on, took off the warmers and put her in royal blue cotton dress.  Something about blue on black just stands out, which I love. I then put a knitted vest over the dress, for a cozy feel.  Then along with that I went and added a long beaded necklace that has a hint of pink in it, which also pops off the blue. For a fun accessory I added a zipper wristlet. Definitely appropriate for this look.

LOOK 3: COZY SEQUENCE

This is a new look I was trying.  I wanted sequence but needed it to be a throw-it-on look.  Kept the boots and tights on Ang once again. Added a sequence dress over it. Then for the ultimate comfort I added a washed-out grey hoodie from Roxy. I thought this was adorable and different. Then I just added a braided necklace for a fun and interesting accessory. I hope you try something like this, you will get the compliments!

LOOK 4: MAKING THE BAND

Ang cracks me up here because she usually is all-smiles. I caught her in a moment of tough love. But she hit it.  I put her in black leggings, a John Varvatos Converse blouse, which has a gorgeous touch, btw and then a dance hat.  I added a a few bands to her wrist and now for the finale, haha, the Ugg fanny pack.  I thought it complimented the fur from the boots so well. And of course, since I got to review a pair of Sorel’s, they are in my opinion taking over Uggs. Anyway, Ang made the band.

LOOK 5: GREEN GELATIN

The last look of Ang is suppose to be fun and easy. I added gray tights this time with the boots, I liked the contrast.  Then I added a black turtle-neck dress put a flannel over it with a big gold chain necklace. Then for my fun color, I chose a green bag. Don’t know why, but something about the green and purple against one another makes this look stand out.

Go check out Sorel Footwear and go get some for yourself to rock out in, they now have rain boots for spring!  They are fabulous and a great fun way to make a fun and unique statement, now it’s time for you to get creative!

My past trip to Colorado was unreal this year.  I got to snowboard Vail Mountain, enough said. But while I was there, I saw these boots on a mom and daughter.  I went up to them while we were all in the coffee shop in the Breckenridge town and said I LOVE your boots, where did you find them? We had about a 7 minute conversation talking about how great they were.  Then I was on the hunt for them in all of the shops in the town…no shop had my size.  Long story short, I came home contacted Sorel Footwear, fabulous boots btw, in my opinion the new Uggs…Anyway I was sent a pair of the Joan of Arctic boot in Black. Tried them on and couldn’t take them off.  Then I wanted to show everyone a few looks I styled with the boots on. Enjoy!

LOOK 1: BUNNY MOUNTAIN

I styled Ang in a bright red sweater and a lovely blue pair of denim.  I was going for a look that you would be noticed in.  Who wants to blend in at the mountain lodge anyway? Then I paired these bright colors with a black Chanel bag and black scarf.  Perfect compliment to the black boots.  I just am in love with the fur at the top too! So adorable.

LOOK 2: FALLING SNOW

Here I styled Ang in a snowflake sweater. I just loved the color combo, it looks so fresh and festive.  I added a woven belt, a cute knitted hat and a brown suede bag.  My favorite part of this look is the knitted gray leggings with the Joan of Arctic Sorel Boots.  It’s just screams punctual. I love it and I hope you do too.

LOOK 3: MR. WHITE’S CHICK

The last look today, I styled Ang in the same leggings with a different combo on the top.  I went with a long sleeve plaid shirt, almost like a dress.  Perfect look for hanging out after the slopes at one of the taverns.  I paired the plaid shirt with a green purse belt for a pop of color.  Then I added some knitted mittens because they were just so darn cute.  And then to finish the look I added a tan scarf that plays with the color of the fur from the Sorel boots.

Now, go check out Sorel footwear and tell me your thoughts.  They are fabulous and a great fun way to make a statement, in the winter and mountains of course!
