Vegan Versions / Chloe Susan Studded Ankle Boot

4 Sep

It's almost fall, which means BOOT SEASON!  For a while now I've been on the search for a vegan version of this beauty, the Chloe Susan Studded Ankle Boot.

I've been in need of more flat shoes in my life, and when I spotted these all over Pinterest months ago, I've been longing for a vegan pair.  I love how they're kind of the badass love child of a cowboy boot, moto boot and harness boot all in one.

Lo and behold, I found this version on JustFab just the other week.  Also looks like Forever21 is making a version as well.  Grab them while they're hot!

Vegan Versions / Leather Vests

I love the idea of throwing one over a blouse and a pencil skirt to wear to work, or on over a tee shirt and skinny jeans for the weekend. Forever21 currently has a ton of options. What do you think? Which should I get?

Typical New Yorker

I actually took these photos a few weeks ago and never got around to posting them.  I threw this together in a hurry on a Saturday morning.  I realized I had overslept and I was running late to my CSA driver shift.  In order to participate in our local CSA, each member has to volunteer three times over the course of the season.  You have to either volunteer handing out the farm shares or if you have a car, drive the unclaimed shares to the local soup kitchen. I was driving this morning and didn't want to be late.  I've learned that when you're in a rush with no time to think, an all black ensemble is the way to go.  Well, technically I'm wearing gray leggings here but you catch my drift.  Wearing all black is such a typical, New Yorker look and considering we're always in such a rush, I now understand why.  It looks great every time. This particular outfit was ridiculously comfortable.  It was basically like wearing a sweats but way more presentable.

Yoga

Yoga 1 {Chambray Shirt: Old Navy; Striped Dress (worn as tunic): H&M; Leggings: Forever21: Boots: MIA via After 6; Camera Bag: THEIT; Sunglasses: thrifted}
I wore this last weekend to go to yoga and brunch with Tracy.  I knew we were going to head out to eat immediately after class, so I needed to wear something comfortable, yet put together for going to a restaurant.  For yoga, I obviously left the boots in my locker along with the chambray shirt and put them on again when class was done.  It worked perfectly! Now I'm on the hunt for more work out gear I can wear immediately after a workout without looking like a gym rat/slob after.  If anyone has any suggestions, throw them my way! Yoga 2 Yoga 3

Seeing Red

Seeing Red 1{Blouse: H&M (thrifted); Pants: H&M (thrifted); Sweater: Forever21; Booties: Forever21; Necklace: Gift; Watch: Michael Kors (gift); Camera Bag: THEIT}
Last week was one of those weeks were I was seeing red my entire time in the office.   Actually, this week has been pretty much the same.  The day I had worn this ironically was the worst day. I've been working through major payment issues with one of my vendors that affects all my customers, and it's been ridiculously stressful trying to get it all sorted out.  That plus having an employee quit along with about 2-3 staff members on vacation next week, and my stress level is near through the roof. This week, especially today I'm dealing much better with the stress.  Tonight I have "sweaty beers" with my gym girl friends after spin class (where immediately following class we hit up the local bar), which I'm looking forward to and it's getting me through the day.  I'm also making it a point to hit up the gym, do some yoga and meditate daily to get rid of some of my nervous energy so I can at least sleep soundly.  We'll see how it goes the rest of this week, it can't get much worse.

Behind the Curve

Not a Dress 1{Blouse: Forever 21; Skirt: Thrifted; Belt: H&M; Flats: Steve Madden (thrifted)}
I am so far behind at work right now it's not even funny. It's been a super busy week on top of it, with commitments after work the entire week. My stress level is through the roof, considering I'm trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends on both the work and home fronts prior to leaving for vacation next week. I had grand plans to put together a post today of what we did on Labor Day (We went sailing... in Brooklyn! Fo' real!), but for now it'll have to wait until tomorrow evening most likely because I'm too pressed for time on this lunch break and there's like, a kazillion photos I took for that post that need to be processed. In the meantime you'll have to settle for this outfit I wore last week to go out for after-work cocktails with Nikki. Not a Dress 2 I'm taking some time off from my stress this evening to enjoy some Fashion Night Out events.  I'll for sure be attending the event at MooShoes, so if you're there be sure to say hi!
