Block Party

Fell in love with these boots, and I'm not sure how it hit me. They had a foreign look about them. An oddly-shaped block heel, and leather tight enough to show the silhouette of your feet. Do I want this? Do I want weirdly tight, geometric block boots? I do. I couldn't explain it, but I do. Strange as they are. No clue how to style these, but love always finds a way! 

Apparently I don't own any skinny jeans (they're all boyfriend's or belles), so I had to nix that styling option. Surely these babies can't hide underneath all that fabric. So my next option was a skirt. Done.

These boots are a unique blood orange color, so I stuck with some faithful neutrals to keep things moderate. Next, I grabbed a fitted top and a cardi to go with it and this turned out better than I thought. I'm often pleased with the looks I come up with when I'm pressed for time. But then again, who likes being rushed?
