Winter Brights Fill me with Delight

As a Canadian, I endure extremely long winters, beginning often in November and lasting well into March, sometimes even April. What makes the short days filled with little sun a little brighter is dressing, well brighter. This season fashion reflected this idea with lots of bright sweaters and bags. My personal favourite bright being bubble gum pink, this is just one of my many bright items. The best part about brights, they transition perfectly into spring. So when the somewhat awkward progression happens, from winter to spring, you have the perfect mid-seasonal change ready to go! Why no enjoy the winter as best you can with fun colours!

These Boots Were Made For Strutting

I am head over wedges in love with these boots, they are over the knee, black suede heeled wedges with a gold zipper along the back. These sky-scraper boots have a 5in heel but feel like I'm walking on air. I have had the same pair of knee-high heeled booties for quite some time and wore the life out of them, thus the replacement. Heeled booties are an essential for every chic woman's wardrobe as they replace heels during the dullest months of the winter. Easier to walk in and much warmer for your feet and legs, knee high or over the knee boots are a must. So here's mine, paired with a casual dress for a night at the bar. Also perfect with jeans, skirts and legginings. I wear these boots to work, school and out. Enjoy!
