I have some crazy, super awesome, fricken fantastic, so excited, supercalifragilistic (get it yet?) news to tell you!
SOREL is currently hosting a Instagram contest, where users can submit photos of SOREL’s theme of the week. All you do is follow SOREL on Instagram, find out what the theme is on Monday, submit a picture of that particular theme, and add the hashtag #GetYourBootsDirty. If your photo gets chosen as the winner of the week, you win a pair of SORELs! I bet you want a free pair of boots to get you excited for the Fall/Winter.
So the LEGEND-wait for it-ARY news is that I was chosen as the winner for the week of accessories (2 weeks ago). I showcased my DIY Midi Rings and found out I won a pair of boots! SOREL was nice enough to let me choose which boots I wanted, and in one week, they shipped it to me. See how excited I am?
Before this contest, I had one pair of SORELs. They make great quality boots, and the best of all, they are waterproof, perfect for the winter in the Bay Area! Even better is that their style has improved season after season, and I love the new Fall looks. So when I got to choose my own pair, I couldn’t decide between the feminine but rugged style of the Joan Of Arctic Wedge Mid Boot or the military styled Scotia Lace Boot. It seriously took me all day to finally decide on which pair I wanted! The Scotia is definitely a good option for everyday wear, but how HOT am I going to look in those wedge boots? I love the grey tone and the low wedge will elongate my legs! Eep, I can’t wait to show them off once the weather cools down!
How gorgeous are these against the Fall background?
Look at the detail of these boots – swooooon!
These can be a bit daunting to wear, I get it. For some, it might be a bit too rugged, but I think that’s the beauty of the shoe. There are endless ways to create a look that’s more feminine so get creative! Plus the wedge definitely adds to the girly look! Here are three outfits that I put together for these boots. I put clothing details under each picture so it’s more convenient to buy (I’m a bad influence, wink). If you want to take breath-taking OOTD pictures like this, you can employ affordable services of photographers, like the Amazing family photography.
This is a great option for a casual, weekend look. A baggy shirt, chunky scarf, skinny jeans, socks, and a messy bun make for a very comfortable outfit.
What do you think about the boots? Which outfit is your favorite and which one would you wear? What other things would you wear to pair with these fabulous boots?
Now go enter into SOREL’s Instagram contest for a chance to win some boots!
Special thanks to SOREL for the Joan Of Arctic Wedge Mid Boot. I love them, and you’ve truly created a SOREL-for-life fan. All my love!
I’m obsessed with midi rings (also known as knuckle rings)!
I’ve been constantly trying to find dainty midi rings online. Either the design isn’t what I wanted, the fit was too large (like the ones at Nordstrom’s and Forever 21), or shipping is too expensive (Etsy). What all this means is that it’s time for a DIY!
What you’ll need (where to buy below):
20 Gauge Jewelry Wire
Round Nose & Chain Pliers
Mascara Tube or anything with a cylindrical shape (similar size to your finger)
Small beads (optional)
The simplicity of these rings are so perfect for any outfit!
Here’s how you can make them:
So easy right? This dainty ring takes less than 5 minutes to make, and it looks fabulous!
The beads are optional. Without the bead, it will just be a swirly design. Still super cute!
Have fun with the designs. I added some beads and made a triple loop for this one.
It’s such an easy project. Go crazy!
What do you think of midi rings? Would you wear them?
