Aquazzura Suede Fringe Boots

Do you ever buy something, and then surprise yourself with how often you wear it? That has been the case with essentially every piece of this outfit, particularly these Aquazzura suede fringe boots. As the 70s and bohemian trends were going strong this fall, I struggled with how to incorporate a piece of that trend in my wardrobe, while remaining true to my personal style. These boots (also available in black) fit the bill perfectly.

In the fall, I wore these with denim and camel and cream tones. I also paired the boots with a Mara Hoffman dress (on sale now). Now, in the winter, I continue pairing them with various items. Not only do they make a fashion statement, but they offer a surprising amount of comfort. In fact, I spent several days earlier this week in NYC and walked all over the city in them!

Besides the suede fringe boots being on sale, you’ll be happy to know that the other major elements of my look are on sale as well! You might remember this Isabel Marant dress that I wore in Paris during fashion week. As the weather has turned slightly cooler here in Houston, I’ve been pairing the dress with skinny jeans and leather leggings. Note that my go-to leather leggings by Helmut Lang are on deep discount too.

  6. you didn’t ask for it here, but you have in previous posts, so i’m just throwing out my list of “posts i’d love to see from carrie, style icon”: how you shop seasonally (list? with a personal shopper? at random with whatever catches your attention?); how you infuse your personal style into work wear (can you tell i’m grappling with a career change to a less fashiony, male-dominated industry?); when/how fashion became such a large focus in your life; your beauty picks. 😉 😉 😉
