Boot Up

Today might very well be my last #OOTD post in my current home. I'm excited and sad all at once; change is definitely hard for me!

Outfit Details

Dress: Rebecca Taylor Watercolor Snake Hammered Silk Dress

The print is truly unique, and the dress design is both eye-catching and flattering, fitted at the waist with a small keyhole neckline. (I'm wearing a size 0 for reference. Rebecca Taylor is running very large lately.)

I love the colors as well. The rich hues of purple, brown and even blue are perfect for the fall and winter months.

You can still buy the dress on the Rebecca Taylor website or at Bloomingdale's or ShopBop.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Minori Croc-Embossed Square Toe Booties

You can still find a few sizes (on sale) at Saks or you can browse the Jimmy Choo website (but will have to pay full price).

I'm not normally a boot person, but I thought these Jimmy Choo boots matched so well with the dress, and I like mixing it up every now and then. They also go great with jeans!

These booties are honestly an odd length, though; I literally have to unzip them so I can drive. They hit so high up it's a bit hard to move in them! Oh, what we ladies will do in the name of fashion!

Since the boots are made from "croc embossed leather" I can't help but think of another pair of crocodile boots: the boots Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas) wore at the end of Romancing the Stone. That movie is still one of my favorites from the 1980s. I'll watch it anytime I come across it when I'm flipping channels. (Yes, we still have cable!)
