Mamas, reader Erin sent in this shot of herself rockin' the ankle boots. Erin wrote:
Thank you for your post on skinny jeans and ankle boots! I have been trying to figure out how to make this combo work for awhile and it never seemed to work right. But Yes! cuffing the jeans totally works! Just sharing my fall momiform: skinnies, ankle boots, dolman-sleeve sweater, and scarf (photo courtesy of my 5-year-old). Thanks for the awesome blog!
Erin, thanks for the awesome pic. You nailed it.
Mamas, if you are crushing over her denim as badly as I am (I've been on the hunt for the a pair of not too light, perfectly worn blue skinnies…and WOW. Search is over.)…the are J.Brand's 910 skinnies in songbird. Her boots are the BP Trolley boots in black ($99 and almost sold out at Nordstrom's), her sweater is Trouve's Oversized sweater, $68 and her gorgeous blue scarf is also from Nordstroms, although Erin couldn't quite remember which one it was (Halogen, maybe?). Here's a pretty turquoise scarf ($28) that is similar.
Erin, thanks so much for sending this gorgeous pic!! I love all of your picks…don't be surprised if I blatantly copy this outfit.
ps. Mamas, I'm not sure what the rest of our week will look like. At this point, we're right in the path of Frankenstorm. Most predictions for the Philly area are not when we'll lose power, but for how long. Crazy! So we're all stocked up on water, flashlights, batteries, and organic junk food (if we have to eat popcorn and chips for three days, it might as well be, uh, sort of healthy?) Although, I don't trust us to stay out of our Halloween candy stash. At this point we're not expecting many trick-or-treaters….
Stay safe, Mamas!! I'll update you when I can…
pps. Happy Birthday, Mom!! I love you!
