Two Teens And Their Mama: Fall Style Challenge - Booties

Fall Style Challenge - Booties


It's week two of the Fall Style Me Pretty Challenge, and there's been a lot of great fashion going on.

In every challenge there is a piece or two recommended by Alison that is completely outside my comfort zone.  This time it was the booties.  I've never worn them before, and I definitely had no idea how to style them.  But I always listen to Alison, so I bought a pair.

And as usual, I love them.  They take an ordinary plaid shirt and boyfriend jean outfit and make it just a little more interesting.  I found this pair of Franco Sarto booties at Nordstrom Rack for $39.95, which is almost like stealing them.



There have also been dressy sweatshirts, gray jeans, plaid scarves, and lots of sweaters. My kind of challenge!



I'm linking up again today with my lovely friends.  Be sure to check out their blogs to see how they styled Alison's outfits!

    1. I think I was avoiding them because of the height. But I really like them now!

  2. The booties are tough! I didn't get my first pair until spring and it took me a while to love them. But now, especially in fall, I am loving them. Hey look great on you!!!

    1. Might not be the easiest shoe to wear while chasing kids, but it would be a cute look on you!

  13. You are so good at this Lana. I saw someone with rolled up jeans the other day, and was wondering if I could pull off that look. The booties look great! I have been studying the center photo in the collage - is that a black sweater or a jacket? I love the cut of it!

    1. Susan, this would be a great look on you - you definitely could pull it off! It's a sweater that I got last year at Target - an open cardigan, and it is really comfy. I think I've seen them there this year too.

    Booties were a definite challenge for me too but I'm kinda loving them! They take up the 'trendy' in an outfit immediately!

  18. You are looking great your outfits, Lana. I really like those little booties. I think I regret not purchasing the lace ups - I think they are very versatile. Do you like them?

    1. I really like the lace ups except I think I need different laces - they come undone a lot!

  19. Ooohh, look at that cutie in those booties! I recently took the plunge and bought myself a pair. I think I might be in love with the bootie!
