Layering It Up




I have a thing for cognac colored boots. They seem to pair well with most of the clothes in my wardrobe. While both of my cognac colored boots are flat, these have a 3 or 4 inch heel for those "I want to look taller" days. They were a gift from my cousin and I've had them for two years now, but they're still in pretty good shape:)! Hope you like this look! Feel free to share your thoughts!

Vest - H&M (Similar one here or here); Sweater - Banana Republic (Exact one here) ; Chambray Shirt - J.Crew (Exact one here) ; Jeans - Zara (Exact one here) ; Boots - Bakers (Similar one here or here) ; Necklace - Banana Republic (Similar one here)

  1. That is an especially flattering color combo. The boots are such a warm, rich color and are just shown to their fullness by pairing them with such a deep saturated blue. By the way, that may be the best colored vest I've seen in a while! Kudos to H&M on that one!

  8. I've been seeing puffy vests like this all over this fall but didn't think they could be styled without looking like a soccer mom.
    Until now! This outfit is very young and cute! :)

  59. For some reason I always had a crush on cognac boots, its the rich and elegant warm colour that I love and as you said it goes with everything. you hair colour looks different, did you colour it? :-) Or does the cognac reflect its colour ;-9
