Who says that turquoise is a summer color? Sure the Caribbean Sea has all shades of turquoise and stands as the symbol for eternal summer. The gem itself also is associated with sunlight and the heat of the American Southwest. Especially, when it is cut and used in beautiful Navajo jewelry.
This summer I saw these beautiful Jimmy Choo shearling booties on eBay with an initial bit of $49. Summer is a good time for buying boots on eBay as it is off-season. Thus, the competition by other biters is low. Thus, I got these beauties for a bargain. I think the low initial bit also had to do with the extreme color, turquoise. This color makes the boots the statement of any outfit. However, winters last about seven months in Alaska, thus, I was looking for a pair of boots in statement color for a long time. I just gets boring with the usual brown, black and gray when you have to wear boots for such a long time.
Since I have many items in my closet that have a hint of turquoise, these shearling boots in turquoise are a great addition. The shearling provides great insulation and the heel helps to have traction in snow packed parking lots. 😉
For this outfit I took advantage of the turquoise thread in the weave of the tweed skirt. Since outfits look so much better when a color is on repeat three times, I added the abstract floral print scarf from summer. you may have seen it lately in one of the Spy Girl sketches (see also below).
Do you buy boots or shoes in a statement color? If so what color would it be? What are your challenges styling them? Let me know by email, I am curious how I can help you.
Welcome to the 91st Top of the World Style linkup party
This linkup party will be the last of 2016. It will be open for linkup for the next two weeks due to the holidays. We will resume with the next party on January 4, 2017. Thanks to all of you who linked up in the past. You and your lovely outfits make these parties so exciting, fun, and inspiring. You are an awesome crowd!
First let me introduce you to our co-host Nancy, the blogger at Nancy’s Fashion Style. On her blog, she likes to write about fashion, and all the things that we women like. But she also wants to take her readers with her in things that happen in her life with her boyfriend and two beautiful cats, who sometimes pose in Nancy’s cool outfit photos. She also hosts a fashion and style linkup party every Friday called Fancy Friday linkup. Since she blogs from the Netherlands, her linkup seems to start on Thursdays for those of us on the other side of the pond. 😉
