Falling for the combat shoes

Fell hard for the combat shoes this fall. Comfortable, practical and tough – not the adjectives I thought I would use for shoes that I love. But they are all that and more.

Whether you wear them with bf/ skinny jeans, leggings or dress with a leather or military style jacket or shorts with a tee and scarf or just a smock – combat shoes can complete the look.

Here are my favorite brands – All Saints Jeffrey Campbell, Kelsi Dagger or Steve Madden. Add a studded one for extra edge. Happy fall-ing!

Style Stalking – Jessica Biel

It’s super hard to go wrong with anything if you are as beautiful and hot as Jessica Biel. But then the girl’s got style, class and versatility. Her look is always upto date and on the trend. Here are some of my favorite looks peppered with my suggestions. 🙂

High rise pants (especially hot if they are cropped) with a neutral blouse. Beach waves to keep it casual.

Yes, there is no going-overboard-with-studs. Feminine sparkly top with the hard biker jacket and leather pants. For mortals like us, I would tone it down a bit.

A simple jersey maxi dress is universally flattering and a great style for traveling.

A mid-length dress with feather peplum to create a hourglass bombshell look. Can ever go wrong with neutrals and pop of colors with the shoes.

Elbow length blouses are back in fashion and so are ankle length jeans. Tuck them in, add a belt and heels for a polished look.

Peplum Obsessed

I went on a massive peplum shopping trip and bought 3 peplum tops on the same day! Too much! Now I am praying that peplum stays trendy for a long long time. But then – it gives such a classy and polished look. It is also very flattering on all figures and created a perfect hourglass shape. So well, I don’t feel as bad.

Now that I have so many peplum tops, I need to figure out various ways to wear it out. Here are 3 that created on polyvore.

These is a fall/summer look and features my latest bag-crush. The bag is here – http://www.celine.com/en/collection/fall/leather-goods/trapeze/9 and no longer available anywhere. But I will keep looking!!!

The second look is causal work appropriate (I do work in a tech firm so denim is totally fine for me). Add a neon pump and Chanel and it’s perfect for happy hour after work too! To add the man-wear trend, feel free to exchange the jeans for a boyfriend jeans.

This is a night-out-in-the-town look. Perfect with my latest love aka tie-dye jeans. And featuring my shoe-crush – the French bootie. So in love. Add neck pieces for a fun look.

Hope you liked these all! If there is another great peplum idea, send/ tweet it my way. I will add it to this list. Thanks for reading.

Look who I found!

I stumbled across the gorgeous and my latest girl-crush on Lookbook.nu. Ashley Madekwe http://lookbook.nu/ashley_ringmybell. She is like style galore!!!

So I took this opportunity to steal 5 of my favorite looks, mostly, as a note to myself for trying this out sometime. The best part is that they are self posted, so no stupid red-carpet sham. I admire her minimalistic super-chic style. So Chanel!!!

PS. Did I already say this girl totally knows how to ROCK neon and brights esp. red?

Summer calls for new shoes!

Summer is here and time for new shoes to adorn your summer outfit.  Here are some my favorite summer picks… sandals, wedges, bling, loafers and flip flops.

 

 

 

 

Moto Boots

I have been eyeing Moto aka Biker boots for sooooo long. Finally, I got around to buying a pair, at work (guilty!).

Check these rag and none beauties out at http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/rag-bone-astor-moto-boot/3177343?origin=category&fashionColor=&resultback=611

Now I am back at home, DREAMING about the various looks and clothing I will pair these with. Here are my top 5 picks –

1.  Simple Tee and Jeans Casual

A plain feminine sheer t shirt and classic sunglasses for the carefree and street chic look.

2. Soft and Hard

Gorgeous white flowing dress with moto boots. Oh, how love opposites coming together.

 

3. Summer causal

Denim cutouts with t-shirt. A little scarf and long cardigan action for the spring.

4.  Breezy skirt and pullover

Again a soft and hard combination. I know its a little similar to #2 but this one has a completely different and cutesy vibe to it.

5. Edgy career lady

Pair a tailored dress with moto boots for an edgy look. Minimal make up but soft feminine wave to complement your attire. Work appropriate too.

 Hope you liked my picks.
