Style: Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots & similar options starting at $39.99!

style trend comment

Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots and other wallet friendly options | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

There’s a good reason that the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots are once of the most popular choices this season. It has a low heel and is more of a riding boot style but also has the benefit of a leg-hugging over-the-knee style. These boots are an investment for your closet but how can you deny the stretchy suede and leather footbed and slip prevention with the rubber sole? If you’re new to over-the-knee boots and want to try out the style to see if it’s for you, or if you want options that are more budget friendly, look at the round up below which starts at $39.99!

ONE {$39.99!}

TWO {under $60}

THREE (save $50 off retail), {7 color choices here}

FOUR {comes in a rich burgundy color, too!}

FIVE {33% off!}

I love this stripe tie waist dress since it offers a unique look to an otherwise usual dress with a tie at the waist. The placement of the tie gives the illusion of a secondary piece tied around the waist without the extra bulk. Additionally, it helps create a perfectly cinched waist. The varied directions of the stripes creates a nice varied look. This look is great for the warm weather we’ve been having lately but I know I can easily add few pieces to extend its wear into the cooler weather.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Stripe tie waist dress (similar style here {only $38} & here {under $26})

Block heel sandal {on clearance for under $14; comes in black, too} (similar style here & here {50% off})

As I’ve refined my sweater collection over the years, I seem to vie more for the muted but classic colors. This particular turtleneck sweater is especially soft and will help keep me warm during the winter months to come. One detail I love is the subtle vertical stripes which makes it a visually interesting piece. Pairing yellow and grey together is a never fail in my book and this juxtaposition of vertical and horizontal stripes is a winning combination. To finish off the look, I paired it with this necklace and matching grey boots.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Grey side zippered turtleneck sweater (similar style here & here {only $35 – 5 colors available!})

Yellow stripe tee (similar style here & here {clearance, under $7.50!})

Chevron pendant necklace (similar style here & here)

Skinny jeans (worn the investment – holds its stretch well!) (similar style here {under $60} & here {under $40})

Grey suede ankle boots (mine are last season – they’ve held up well!) (similar style here (love this lighter grey option) & here)

Baby sleep gear when traveling (+giveaway!)

giveaway, sponsored, travel comment

Traveling with a little one sometimes brings lot of challenges. For example, the first time I ever traveled for an extended weekend getaway, I was feeling overwhelmed. The number of items the baby “might need” grew into a small hill and at one point, looked like it was twice the size of the luggage I had on hand. Since then, I’ve learned what things my baby absolutely needs and has to be packed and what I can count on buying when getting to the travel destination.

One thing that has been a challenge is the sleeping situation with an infant. Foreign environments are one thing but sleeping in a foreign bed hasn’t always been the most positive experience for my son. Somehow, he always knows – even when half asleep – that he isn’t at home. More often than not, my son’s ended up in the bed with me since he didn’t like foreign bed. One challenge, now that he’s much older, is the amount tossing and turning he does while asleep. I recently discovered these inflatable travel bed rails, and let me tell you, it’s made things much better. It gives him his space in my bed and still allows me some undisturbed sleep away from his flailing arms and legs.

I love that the entire set up is compact – the two rails fit into a small pouch and the pump is lightweight and easy to use.

I can easily inflate both rails and slide them underneath the fitted sheet to create a space that feels safe for my son.
