Finally the Search is Over!







Shirt-New York & Company worn here (similar, similar) // Blazer-Club Monaco via Goodwill worn here (similar, similar) // Pants-H&M (similar) // Boots-Anne Klein via DSW (similar) // Necklace and bracelet-Groopdealz

The longer something is on your wish list, the clearer it becomes. I think the item takes form and becomes specific. I have been looking for black booties for months. I wanted a few details, slight heel, and to be able to wear them with pants or dresses and skirts. Preferably leather or suede. The search was almost tireless. Hmm, maybe that's a bit dramatic. Anyway, last weekend I headed over to DSW to take a look for booties and new heels. Enter HUGE clearance sale. I finally found these (and a pair of flats also somehow made it to the check out with me). The gold detail is so fun and they are super comfortable. Did I mention they were only $30 too?! It seems like all the stars were aligned for me!

Don't forget to come back Wednesday and link up your Winter Must Have outfits!

  4. Thanks Kelsey! I thought it was a fun, extra touch! And you inspired me to go out in the crazy temps to pick up some yarn so I can try out arm knitting! :)

  7. That's so funny - I have a pair of black booties on my wishlist too! Unfortunately I haven't found my dream pair (in the right price range) yet. The hunt continues! I LOVE the pair you got - the heels are awesome!

  9. They look marvelous and seem like they were worth the wait! Isn't it the best feeling when you finally spot "the one" while you are browsing? They look really sophisticated with this blazer outfit.

  10. Yay! I'm glad you finally found what you have been looking for! I feel the same way about my wish list items. Sometimes it gets annoying to be so picky, but the things that I have waited to get "the one" for have been some of my favorite pieces in my closet. PS. Those jeans look amazing on you!

  11. hi Laura!
    We had a great turnout, for me being gone for one week. I must not do that again if I can completely help it. I get momentum for each week and then when I don't hold that hop, they forget to come back or they are ticked, at the least. lol

    Be sure and go to my "blog hops" page and get the "I was a Co-Host" button for your blog, too.
    You don't have to if you don't want to but it is there if you want it. Thank you again for being our Co-Host!

  13. One of your best Outfits this year, hands down. Though you have had many fantastic Outfits on our Winter Must Have Series, also. The Blazer & Booties are so Chic and Sexy at the same time. I love your new Boots & the price as well. =) I am glad you found them.

  22. i love your entire look and yes, those booties are fantastic! i just love browsing the clearance racks at DSW, especially when there is an additional sale or coupon. i've found a couple great pairs of shoes myself that way, too! and thanks for the reminder not to just settle for items on a wish list but to hold out until you find the perfect option.

  23. I have learned by many, many mistakes! I've gotten like 3 similar items before because I couldn't find exactly what I wanted. But I think I am slowly getting it! I haven't been to DSW in a while, but I'll be checking there more often now!
