Friday’s guest post comes all the way from California courtesy of Nikki from Bedazzles After Dark. Just like Madison yesterday, Nikki has a tie to Kentucky that kicked off our friendship. She’ll tell you all about it below but I’m thrilled to share her east coast meets west coast style with you all! It was so fun finally meeting her in September after striking our blogging friendship.
She’s mentioned before that she may make it back to the bluegrass eventually (fingers crossed!) but until then make sure to follow her adventures over at Bedazzles After Dark. Thanks so much to Nikki and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Hello there Lou What Wear readers!!
First, I have to just say a big ol’ thanks to Danielle for having me Guest Post!! I immediately bonded with Danielle when I realized she lives in Louisville (my husband is originally from Elizabethtown) and told her how jealous I was of all her trips to Keeneland and/or Churchill Downs. We finally got to meet during Lucky FABB this year and I’m beyond thrilled to help her out on LWW! Normally, you can find me on my blog Bedazzles After Dark where I celebrate all things sparkly, pink & girly with a few personal style photos here and there.
I’m so crazy about fall right now – probably because we’ve only had a taste here and there in L.A. So for you lucky gals experiencing a drop in the mercury, I’ve got 2 outfit ideas based around 1 item: the Riding Boot!
I’m so obsessed with riding boots right now (check out this post where I gathered a few ways to wear them). I got a pair recently and I swear I’m never taking them off until April. I’m finding that they truly go with so many items in closet – jeans, shorts, dresses, leggings – I mean the possibilities are endless (and did you guys see Danielle in hers?- I LOVE it!)
The first outfit is a basic fall outfit that you can never go wrong with. Right now I’m into military anything, so Army Green skinnies are a perfect combo with the knee high boot. I chose a chunky cable knit sweater that just screams “Fall!” and a J.J. Winters metallic crossbody(get 20% off with code BAD20) – I love the gunmetal against the sweater – super modern. The earrings I threw in just for fun – pair with a topknot for a full on comy, cozy, chic look.
The next outfit is slightly more adventurous – yay! Try a pair of brown leather shorts with a loose fitting cream blouse. Add some sheer leopard tights (sheer is the key word) and a funky clutch – this British flag option is super cute! These playful details keep your look fun and fresh. I always say take a risk – why not?!
If you try any of these options – I want to know! Send me a tweet or instagram it and tag me (@NRich) You can keep up with my on Facebook too & don’t forget to stop by Bedazzles After Dark! Can’t wait to meet you xo
