Style: sock boots

Style: sock boots | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

As you’re prepping for the boot season, don’t overlook the current sock boot trend. The tight-fitting boot trend is distinct in its close hugging nature. Not only that, its length falls somewhere between the calf and ankle giving the illusion of a true sock. Their popularity is due to the silhouette they help create: a slimming effect. Pair it with your favorite legging to create the look of extra long legs. Or, pair them with your crop pants to extend your wear when the temperatures drop.

Style: Gucci horsebit loafer mule slide and other budget friendly options | see it all on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Add a little bit of inspiration from menswear with the loafer slide to your shoe rotation this season. Since Gucci introduced their version, it’s been quite the “it” shoe. The mule flat is perfect for all day wear since it’s not a heel. More importantly, it pairs with just about anything: skirts, jeans, tailored pants. I’ve rounded up some great finds for all price points below:

Monthly budget finds under $50

Budget finds under $50 | www.shoppingmycloset.com

During the winter months, I tend to live in neutrals. But, I am looking forward to Spring and to help make the easy transition, I’m opting for neutral pieces but appropriate for the warmer weather. Here are some budget friendly finds that can also help you make that transition:

Black wide leg pants: How cute is the belting detail? Pair it a fitted top to balance out the bottom and pointed heels to elongate the legs.

Petal chandelier earrings: these would be perfect to pair with an otherwise neutral look to dress it up.

White and black contrast shirt with embroidered collar: I’m always on the lookout for a white blouse since you can pair it with anything. The contrast piping and collar detail add some fun to the top, and gives it a more sophisticated feel.


Navy herringbone scarf
: if you’re looking for one scarf to add to your closet, this might be the one. It’s a classic look overall: blue, white, and stripes – what more can you ask for?

Black accented ankle boots: these boots are only $32 but they look so much more expensive because of the metallic accent at the toe.

Military-inspired wide leg pants: the military look is going strong and these pants are perfect. They’re under $20 and meet all the chic factors: wide leg, metallic button accents, slimming!

Black lace heels: I bought my first lace heels from Banana Republic (last see here) and fell in love! The lace detail adds so much to an outfit. Since they are only available in grey, these black ones would be a great 2nd pair for me (and not to mention, they’re under $20!)

Pink ring purse: this bag is the perfect shade to prepare for the spring season and its versatility as a handbag and crossbody make it worth the buy!

Striped hem pencil skirt: can you believe this Vince Camuto stripe pencil skirt is only $24? Perfect for a daytime look – keep it classic by pairing with a white silk or cotton button down.
