Accessories Access: Affordable & Cute Cold Weather Must-Haves!


Baby, it’s cold outside, which means that you better bundle up in style! That includes hats, headwraps, scarves, & gloves when facing the brutal change in temperature. Not to mention that for Cyber Monday, there are plenty of great buys to help solve your holiday gift giving dilemma, & why not treat a loved one to something cozy & chic like a pom pomp beanie or luxe infinity scarf? Here in the Northeast, it’s been windy & chilly, which means that I’m not leaving the house without layers of elegant extras that won’t add too much frompy bulk. However, as an avid collector of scarves, I’ve found that when it comes to cold weather accessories, there’s such a variety in colors & textures to create an interesting & stylish outerwear look to play with how you style your go-to winter coat.

Splurge Or Save… On Red Suede Ankle Booties?


While I’m still keeping an eye on all things Black Friday still going on & the upcoming Cyber Monday deals, I’ve been noticing that red suede ankle booties.  Of course these aren’t a new item in the world of footwear, but it seems like every website that I’m clicking through has a pair & I love the idea of an unexpected pop of color on your feet with any layered heavy knit look & some neutral outerwear.

When it came time to update a Splurge or Save? post, I couldn’t help but wonder how I’d recommend my readers to wear these shoes, when I know I’d be looking for a more stiletto-like heel with some more feminine details. However, mixing this Western-inspired accessory is actually quite easy, when you consider it with skinny jeans or leggings, paired with plaids, polka dots, mini florals, & vintage lacey pieces.

@Zappos, the Seychelles ‘Crazy for You’ booties ($125.99) have been marked down from their original price of $140.00 & are my most expensive pick.  Next in line, you can find the Cinteresting ankle boots ($95.00) by Aerosoles with contrasting stitch details & a metallic buckle @QVC. Thirdly, the Rebels Harlow bootie ($39.94) from DSW has a lace-up detail behind the heel much like a sexy corset.  Standing at 3 3/4″, the cowboy booties ($29.80) from Forever 21 are the tallest of this quintet of shoes, but are also currently reduced $10.00 for the Black Friday sale which is ending today.  Lastly, the best deal of them all comes from Charlotte Russe with the sueded slip-on Western bootie ($18.55), which is 30% its original $26.50 price.

Would you wear red suede ankle booties? How would you style these? How much do you invest in your shoes? Are you following any of the Blake Friday & Cyber Monday sales? Happy Styling!
