1 Piece 3 Ways

16 Feb

Back again this Thursday for my favorite new series, 1 piece 3 ways. Not familiar with this series? Check out all the info here.

Today’s piece, is actually two; Madewell’s Barnwood Boots. I have been lusting after these for a while but couldn’t justify buying them. I kept wondering if they were really practical or more on the trendy side. Working 40 hours a week, I have to be careful with purchasing ‘trendy’ pieces as most of them are not appropriate for the corporate setting. However, styled correctly, any piece can be made office appropriate you just have to be creative.

Following my own rule and mentally styling each new addition to my wardrobe in 3 distinct settings (work, casual and date night) I decided to tackle these boots to see if they could fit into my life. Well my friends, they do.

Earrings: Kendra Scott / Shirt: Old Navy

Skirt: H&M

Blouse: 3.1 Phillip Lim / Blazer: Rag & Bone

Skirt: TopShop

Dress: J.Crew / Belt: J.Crew

Hat: Great Plains (similiar)

Things that make me happy today:

1. Thursday night dates with besties

2. Late night life chats with roomies

3. Scalp massage at the salon – never gets old
