Guest Post: One Shoe, Three Ways (Jeneral Relativity)

one shoe three ways, booties rocking everywhereI’m so excited to be sharing my very first official fashion post on Fashionista Problems with you all! Sure, I have posted my outfit of the day on Instagram here and there, but haven’t really embraced the fashion blogger side of me. Not any longer! I’m so glad that with Corey’s support I can share my love for fashion with this lovely community of FASHIONISTAS! When Corey and I were chatting about what we wanted our first collaboration post to be on, she asked me if I liked booties, and my response was, “Heck yes, I’m wearing a pair right now!” Nothing more needed to be said, booties were the topic! And no, we’re not talking about Kim K breaking the internet. We’re talking about my favorite footwear (non sandal or tennis shoe): ankle boots!

With fall having finally arrived in Cali, all my favorite fashion pieces now get to come out and play! I have a scarf obsession, and there is no time like fall to embrace it. In addition to my love for scarves, ankle boots are one of my newest obsessions. My love affair with this shoe style started when I bought my first pair last year. There are so many great pairs of booties in store and online these days. My suggestion is to check out places like DSW and TJ Maxx, as I’ve found awesome pairs there! The pair you will see today is from DSW and I have been in love with them since day 1. I hope these looks inspire you to style some booties you already own or go find a pair that fits your style and rock them!

Say what you will about white pants after Labor Day, but to me they are such a fun break from all the black and grey of fall fashion. Since these aren’t skinny legged pants, I cuffed the bottom to give a nice line between the top of the boots and the bottom of the pants. This shirt is super cozy and can be worn on the shoulder or off, depending on whether you’re at work or play! The scarf gives the whole look a fun pattern and a pop of color. No risk of being too neutral here!

This look is perfect for those wacky fall days when it starts out brisk in the morning but is balmy and beautiful by early afternoon. The scarf is actually really special to me since my brother and I bought matching ones during our travels in Europe. Whenever I wear it I think of him… and usually send him a selfie! Since the ensemble is rather neutral overall I paired it with a black cherry lip to add a bit more drama to the look.

You’re pretty much looking at my uniform on any fall weekend. Cozy pants are a must. I’m often running around and comfort is key. No reason to sacrifice fashion for function, though! A relatively plain look can be jazzed up with this fun hat which is awesome not only because I made it, but it also keeps me toasty warm when there’s a chill in the air!

Which look is your favorite? Leave a comment and let us know! Also, don’t forget to check out Corey’s looks on Jeneral Relativity, too! There’s a sneak peek below.
