I like to mix things up a bit. Since these suede boots were the only shoes I could work with, I had to be creative. I grabbed a ruffle skirt that I got on sale for $15 the other day and matched it with a white ruffle blouse my mother in law got me as a gift from Korea years ago. Then I, of course, had to tone down the femininity with a black blazer that I’ve had forever and the opaque stirrups from my shop. The look is completed with gold vintage-ish jewelry pieces along with a belt with a gold buckle. I was initially a bit worried that all the ruffles might be overpowering but I think the tights and the jacket really eased up the look.
