If you run into me when you are shopping, or just talked about clothing in general you have probably heard me preach about basics, wether you wanted to hear it or not. HA. I am a firm believer that somewhere in the neighborhood of 70-80% of your closet should be timeless basics and you can have crazy fun with the last 10-20% depending upon what speaks to you.
This outfit we are loving at the moment, is in that 70-80%. These are pieces that if you wear them tomorrow or 2 years from now, as lon... Read more
There is nothing better than a summer bonfire, surrounded by friends and families. We can practically taste the gooey s'mores just thinking about it!
Before you can make the perfect s'more, you need a perfect outfit! These sweatshirts are great because they're super soft, super cute, and lightweight so basically, they're the perfect bonfire hoodie :)
This hoodie is a personal favorite! It has adorable ties up the side and feels like a dream! Literally, it is so soft.
This jade color has been so popular for our customers! We love the beautiful color and the terry cloth interior that makes this a great lake sweatshirt! It is also available in grey for those who prefer more of a neutral color :)
These sweatshirts pair nicely with our Spanx Camo Leggings and our Democracy denim so stop in for your new favorite hoodie :)
This sweet floral top can be paired with a bunch of different cardis, jackets or worn by itself for a cute, spring look. An accessory can be the difference between making it an outfit or making it seem like you just threw clothes on and ran out the door.... And seriously, I get the fact that you probably are like me and DID throw clothes on as you ran out the door, but no one will be the wiser if you choose an accessory to throw on too. ;)
Note: A nude or taupe shoe goes well with EVERYTHING including black... So if you don't have one in your shoe collection, I would highly recommend you get on that... Like... Now..

This week with our temps in the 40's we are certainly looking for ways to keep warm. This outfit has such a cute palette of colors with camel, olive and tan. (Not the easiest to photograph). But super cute!
In our climate, really we should all almost have more options for outwear than almost anything else. It is literally what we are seen in for 50% of the year so why not have a few different jackets to pick from in your closet? Especially classic silhouettes like this camel colored peacoat. It is never going to go out of style, so you can wear it for years to come.
This olive henley (which also comes in a plum) is a super comfy long sleeve top that you can wear with the sleeves rolled up or down.
The roasted tan boots are from Lifestride are so comfy! This color also goes well with almost any color for fall and winter. Plus, they are faux leather so they are an affordable wardrobe option.
These are the "Diana" Skinny from Kut from the Kloth they are wider in the leg from the knee down, which can help out people with a little more generous of a calf.
Statement necklaces, go with EVERYTHING this time of the year. So find something that sparkles for around you neck and wear it all the time. :) We need a little more sparkle in the world.

Diana Skinny - Stop in, we love to help you find denim you love.

They are showing a lot of vests for fall. They can very easily paired with shorts and at the same time you can swap out the shorts and pair it with leggings or skinny jeans as our weather starts to transition to fall.
This outfit is perfect for a lazy summer day and travels well. So for those upcoming vacations... ;)

Who says that layers are just for cooler months?! This outfit is so cute pairing crisp white shorts with a navy blue layering cami and great light weight knit that is oh so perfect for the wind on the boat. How much are we loving this warmer weather lately?!
The light weight hoodie in this pretty light blue looks great with white and kahki and also comes in a light green. It also comes in a great light green (Check that out here
These layering tanks have been getting great reactions. So far (fingers crossed) these have been getting great feed back on being more resistant to pilling. The are also made in the USA and their fabric content being 92% nylon and 8% spandex helps them feel so soft.
Crips white shorts in your favorite length are a great wardrobe staple. Do not be so concerned with getting stained. It is magic what a little bleach pen can do. But if you are really really scared, this look would look great with a lighter khaki short as well.
The purse is epic, the colors look great together but no only that you can fill this thing up to take it to the beach or even use it for toting you macbook air back and forth to work with you like I do. ;)
Blowfish sandals can almost not be beat for how great of a price point they sit at for how expensive they look. Seriously these babies are a vegan leather and look real.

This outfits we are loving features navy and white stripes with a great ankle pant that shows off a pair of gladiator inspired sandals.
Navy & White are classic, but the key to make this look updated instead of grandmaish is pairing a totally neutral shoe such as this taupe gladiator. Being to matchy matchy is exactly what can date a look and make you appear older. The key is to just add a little twist to make it feel fresh and updated.

This Outfits we are loving is all about being cute and comfortable. The guazy soft dress is perfect paired with a great stone colored gladiator sandal and a unique and interesting bag.
The dress has a great detailing towards the bottom of the skirt that makes it just a little more special than a similar maxi. The fabric is soft and feels like it will be cool on hot summer days.
The Sandals are from Minnetonka and have great tribal detailing on the heel and are an easy unzip to slip off. We have gotten great feed back on how comfortable these are.
The bag is one of my favorite pieces because it is so unique. It is made in a fair trade factory and imported. We only got one in each color because we thought it was to unique to have to many of them in our area. :) I am always trying my best to find unique pieces so that our stylish friends feel like they are not seeing their wardrobe items on someone else constantly.

We are loving this boyfriend inspired weekender look. With a muted color palette it gives a little earthy flair. The boyfriend jeans are a looser fit throughout the thigh and hips and sling about 1.5" below the belly button. The little detail on the rolled up cuff give them an extra little something. These fabulous lace up gladiator sandal pair SO well with a little rolled up pant. The top from Kut from the Kloth is 100% linen with a looser fit intended and you can wear buttoned up or open for a lot of versatility.
If you are headed away for the weekend the weekend make sure to pack a fabulous Free Trade bag and one of our favorite North Dakota bags from Rilos & Mimi.

This Outfit we are LOVING features a little causal bohemian hippish style that makes you think of wandering in and out of fun shops while vacationing on a warm summer day.
Bohemian styling is becoming more and more important as a trend. This trend will be continuing into the Fall of 2016 as well. Our style team at Boots & Heels always love to find a way for us to all wear a bit of trend, while keeping it visually appealing for everyday wear. And only investing in trends we know will be staying around for a little while so you get the investment wear back out of the pieces. So enter or beautiful crochet back vest. The fabric feels extra soft and luxurious while having the great crochet detail on the back. You can layer it with jeans and a tee as pictured and even over some of the casual spring dresses you already have hanging in your closet.
The sandals from Madeline are a gorgeous denim blue color that pairs perfectly with most of your must haves for summer.
Because we like the way this feels for weekend, we paired it with one of our oversized bags that you can pack with a couple of out fits and your make up essentials and you are ready for your weekend adventure. This bag is imported from a company based in The Netherlands.

We all know we should have a simple black dress in our closets. What is amazing, is how far these little work horse pieces can go. You can style them so many ways to wear them for almost any occasion. How about the weddings you have coming up this summer? Pair with a statement necklace, and some pumps and away you go. Going shopping with friends? Wear a denim jacket and some flip flops. Going out for lunch? Wear the outfit with your denim jacket color of choice. Needing an outfit for work? Pair with a cardigan and belt it. Secret? A belt can transform ANY dress in your closet to make it look like one you have never worn before.
I know, I know a lot of people say they don't like to wear dresses. I LOVE wearing dresses in the summer. Often times the summer fabrics feel nearly like pajamas AND you can stay cooler without having shorts on, that liek

The outfit we are obsessed with at the moment. We just love the idea of this combo with great leggings and you just can't beat the fun color pop you get from pairing the green scarf with the blue in the handbag. It makes the look more modern.
The surest way to "date" yourself is to be to "matchy-matchy" and accessories are the easiest way to step out of a color rut. ;)
