Day to Night: Black Boots

Sweater- Marshalls (love this), Jeans- H&M (similar on sale! ), Boots- Shoedazzle, Bag- Phillip Lim for Target, Necklace- Just Svara, Sunglasses- similar

Chambray- Kohl's (on sale $18! ), Dress (worn as skirt)- Forever 21, Necklace- similar

I've seen the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots in just about every magazine I've read lately, so when I saw these boots in a similar style on Shoedazzle, I decided to retire my 2 year old black boots for this pair. I got them for $24.95 since it was my first order on the site. Such a great price, and the quality doesn't disappoint.

Since my journey through shopaholic recovery, I'm trying to be better about buying pieces that are versatile. Of course flat knee-high boots can be styled tons of ways for casual daytime looks, so I set out to prove that they could work for a nighttime look too. Now, when I say "nighttime," I'm not talking clubwear, but for dinner out on the weekend, this look is perfect. The boots make the shorter hemline of my skirt a little more tasteful, and help to keep my legs warm (well, once it gets cold here they will).

For another versatility challenge, I am determined to style my windowpane print dress in at least 4 ways. I especially love it as a skirt!
