EDGY LOOK









By all means I don’t think I have edgy cool girl vibes at all haha but I did want to try out an edgy look to switch things up. I’d say my style is pretty girly for the most part but I love adding edgy pieces to my look from time to time. I’ve always loved combat boots on others but didn’t think I could personally pull them off. I was constantly trying them on but could never pulled the plug on purchasing a pair until I saw this pair online. I loved how edgy they were and the pearl buckle detail added that touch of girliness. I was still hesitate when they arrived but with the encouragement of my husband and his cousin, I decided to keep them! I’m so happy I did, I’ve worn them multiple times already with denim. For this edgy look, I paired the boots with some leather faux leggings, a black sweater and teddy coat. Would love to hear what your style is and if you ever branch out and try other styles?

I wanted to share something that has been on my mind which is being ORIGINAL. I had a conversation with one of my blogger friends about this and we just don't get why people can't succeed on their own. I find it so appalling that on social media people have no shame in stealing other's peoples photos, ideas or even just copying everything little thing someone is doing. Why can't people just be creative and work hard themselves?!? We're all inspired by someone but stealing and copying everything someone else is creating is just a big NO, NO! I've seen and heard so many people tell me it has happened to them. Be your own person, BE ORIGINAL!

  1. I so agree with you on people copying, they don t want to think or innovative, there are few who even copy the poses..

  7. I'm so with you! I love the combat boots but they never look good on me, I'm too girly to do them justice. Yours look great though! And this outfit is super cute x

  8. I love the edgy vibes! Those boots are perfect with the accents. I think people copy because they're not really in it to truly express themselves. I haven't had anyone try to copy me...I'm not that interesting. Lol Happy Monday! ♥

  22. Those boots and your leggings look amazing on you! I agree with you on the whole copying issue. I think that when people copy on social media, at the end of the day, they don't really have passion for the content that they are sharing. If they truly had passion, they'd be fueled to create original, innovative content.

  25. I know sometimes when I'm out shopping I'm people-watching (well OK, all of the time I'm doing that). I see so many people dressed "alike". Same style on everybody and I think, "Oh, they've been on Pinterest" or wherever (I'm guilty of doing that too). I love to see something that's a bit different and decide what I'd do to make it my own. I do know I need a pair of faux leather pants - they look great on you. And combat boots are big for this season (and next Fall and Winter too, I'm sure).

    I have to laugh at these bot spam checkers when trying to post comments (mine may have one too - maybe it's a Wordpress thing). I'm thinking if I'm a forward-thinking robot (with a problem-solving set of chips), I'm so going to say I'm not a robot :P

  30. Okay, you can definitely pull off those combat boots. Loving your bag, too! I'm totally on board with you and originality. I don't go on insta much these days, but one day during the holiday season, I seriously read THREE captions that were basically the same. In one sitting! Sigh.

  33. Love your outfit! The boots are perfect for this time of the year. I don't have combat boots but they look so well put together. The look actually works out for you! It is sad when people steal content from others. I mean it's good to have inspiration but there are people who actually work hard to come up with their own thing. YES! Definitely be original!

  43. You did that babe! Love the you got out of your comfort zone (along with some pep talk from hubby and cousin, lol) because you definitely pulled the booties off. And you're right. The pearl is a nice touch especially for a girly girl like you.

    To touch on the next subject, I concur. I think the problem is when people are looking for instant success they look to others who seem successful to see what works and then they do what worked for someone else. Although not knowing how long it took that person to get to where they are. It's fine to be inspired, but most important for you to take the inspiration, but make sure that you are being you.

    Thanks for sharing babe.
