The holidays are done, and a new year is almost upon us! I hope everyone had a great time with the ones you love. If you’re still on break, lucky you! For my holiday break, I headed to Houston to spend time with my mom and her boyfriend. Over the last year I’ve had more trips to Houston than I ever have, and I’m really falling in love with the city. It’s huge, ethnically diverse and there always seems to be something going on. Also, it doesn’t hurt that it’s the home of The Galleria!
On the day before Christmas, we headed out on the town, so I could see some sites on my short trip. We made a stop downtown at a park in front of city hall. The park was perfectly situated between city hall and a few skyscrapers. I find the Houston skyline to breathtaking, so I took a couple of photos.
On my outing at the park, I took some photos in front of the Reliant Energy Christmas tree and the water fountain in front of city hall. Since, it wasn’t super cold during the day, I stuck to wearing my new distressed black jean jacket from Forever 21. My denim jacket paired along with my yellow plaid shirt also from Forever 21 kept me warm enough throughout my day. I kept with the black denim for my jeans and topped off my look with some luxury á la Saint Laurent boots. I enjoyed my Houston outing with style!
Overall, I really enjoyed my holidays. I got to see my lovely mom, and I got spend time in a city I hope to live in soon. Until the new year!
I’m a huge believer in fashion on a dime, but sometimes it’s great to invest into some designer pieces that will last you for a couple of years. I’ve always been admired the Saint Laurent look that former creative director Hedi Slimane brought to the fashion house, so I decided to invest into a pair of their Western Jodphur cropped boots.
Now their boots range from $895 to $1,295, but thankfully they were having a sale on a pair that I had to have! I was able to purchase these cropped boots in tan suede for $589. Even though that’s still a lot of money, it beats paying $1,000! I looked at it as an investment, with great care they can last met for a couple of years, plus the upper and sole are made of 100 percent leather!
Now in order to get that grunge, streetwear look that Saint Laurent is famous for, I paired my boots with some biker jeans from Zara and a red plaid shirt from Forever 21.
If you ever plan on investing in a designer piece, I suggest buying a good pair of shoes or a nice bag, because it will go great with your more affordable pieces! Be sure to look out for sales at Saint Laurent or a designer that you admire, you’ll be surprised at the great items they have on sale.
Let me know what you think about my new pair of boots! Or if you agree in investing in designer pieces!
