Get Fresh and Fun for Winter – Now
Winter wardrobe staples don’t have to be boring. It’s easy to resort to wearing the same few pieces – the same black and gray and blah pieces – over and over and over again. But even the most classic or traditional of clothing items can feel almost instantly refreshed with one photo-worthy accessory.
This week’s Goodwill gem is a gorgeous find that can make even the most boring of pieces in your closet feel fun and exciting again. Found for a real steal at my favorite local thrift, these super-high heels are strappy and oh-so-sassy. The pretty, pointy heel, open toe and black leather straps look a little coy and playful, but still manage to be classy. For winter, of course, you’ll want to pair them with some opaque black tights to keep yourself warm, but what’s even more wonderful about these shoes is that you can easily carry them over from season to season – in the spring, ditch the tights and don’t be afraid to show a little skin!
Looking for something to wear with these seriously sexy and sassy heels couldn’t be easier – you really cannot mess this up. Skinny, tailored trousers or jeans would look great with these sky-high, strapped up heels, but here, I’ve chosen to pair them with a pretty, full, ladylike skirt in a dark, pleated linen and a crisp white blouse. With a pair of solid, go-everywhere tights and a classic bag, this outfit is done (and adorable!) in next to no time. It’s professional and put together, but with the addition of this cute and flirty heels, it becomes a fun ensemble that you can wear pretty much anywhere.
