fifteen links.

  1. i bought 52 lists for happiness on a random amazon whim, and i love it so much. i know you’re only supposed to do a list a week, but i’ve already done several. i HIGHLY recommend this book/journal, especially if you struggle with anxiety. plus, its just so stinking cute!
  2. i added lots of dresses to my easter dress shopping post!
  3. my friend sarah recommended erin’s instagram last week, and her account quickly became my favorite. and ends up she just launched a blog, too, which of course is adorable. what i love most about her instagram and her blog is that she writes the way she talks (i mean i’m guessing because i obviously don’t know her IRL) and is just so REAL. also, her home is INCREDIBLE. this book wall? i die.
  4. have y’all seen this house hunters spoof, church hunters? every john crist video i watch is hysterical, but this one is just SO on point. gosh i hate millennials.
  5. i found this bralette while wandering through nordstrom rack the other day, and i think i’m going to order every color it comes in. it looks EXACTLY like this free people one (that i have in 3 colors already), except its padded! hallelujah thank you jesus i can wear this thing with more than just super loosey goosey tops!!
  6. the zara founder apparently makes more money in a day than i do in a week so thats pretty cool.
  7. i was innocently browsing the nordstrom sandal section and these strange looking things popped up. what is even happening here? who would pay money for these?!
  8. brighton wrote a really encouraging post about comparison and not feeling good enough.
  9. have y’all tried hello fresh? i’m really considering it. mainly because i hate grocery shopping with a flaming passion. pros? cons? other recommendations?
  10. i’m on the hunt for a new tote and i think this free people one is at the top of my list.
  11. i don’t watch the bachelor so i don’t feel like i appreciated this post as much as others, but how INCREDIBLE does finland look? i follow mackenzie and katie on instagram and was just in love with every post. i mean cmon they met santa AT HIS WORKSHOP.
  12. i bought these star print jeans last week and got TONS of compliments when i wore them. i like them so much more than i thought i would, and i think i can wear them a lot more than i thought i would, too!
  13. i also picked up this t-shirt last week because i saw amber wearing it in a recent post and thought it was wildfox-until i clicked the link!
  14. i have a (much needed) hair appointment tomorrow, and this emma roberts smoky quartz situation is the look i’m going for i think. if i don’t chicken out that is.
  15. i’m trying to clean out my closet and selling lots of stuff over on my poshmark (username @beccadaniels), including a pair of rag & bone newbury boots, which i raved about in this post.
best of: boots

ends up, i have a lot of shoes.
an embarrassing amount for someone who teaches preschool and clearly doesn’t make millions. i thought it might be fun to do a few different “best of” blog posts talking about my shoes and why i promise each pair is needed!

first up: boots!

the newbury boot:

i’m pretty sure that this style of bootie is my all time favorite. they are so easy to dress up or down, and the style compliments almost every outfit. if i wasn’t such a boot hoarder, i think i could live the rest of my life with just this style of boot in my closet. paying full price for the newbury boot is a true investment-they cost right at $500 a pair. however, if you’re patient, you can snag a pair for way less than $200 (i bought my first pair for $200 off eBay, and then used poshmark credit to buy my next two pairs for $140 each). the rag and bone website often runs major end of season sales where i’ve seen the newbury listed for as low as $180. i definitely recommend investing in these boots. the quality is amazing, they’re SO comfortable, and they will definitely last a lifetime.

the harrow boot:

i know, i know, another rag and bone pair. the harrow boot was the first rag and bone boot i fell in love with, and the last to add to my closet. i feel like people literally own these boots forever, so it was hard to find the perfect preowned pair. like most of my designer shoes, i snagged this from poshmark for less than $150. i love the black strap and the taupe color-these boots will literally go with anything. the heel is a little lower than the newbury, so they’re slightly easier to wear.

OTK boots:

i did a full blog post about these stuart weiztman beauties here, so i won’t go talk too much about them in this post. i will say this: i love these boots so much and i’m so mad at tennessee for skipping winter and taking away all my opportunities to wear them.

everyday neutrals:

both pairs of these boots were nordstrom rack deals that i couldn’t pass up. i really try not to wear my more expensive pairs of boots daily considering my job. i really wanted some throw on and go boots that i wasn’t too attached to in case a child at work decided to pee on me or throw up on me (which literally happens once a week). i also try not to wear my designer shoes in the rain, if i can help it. each of these easy, classic booties is so comfortable and easy to style. and if they fall apart after this season, i’m not worried because i think i paid $30 each?

flat boots:

i think its important to have a pair of flat boots in your closet for times when a heel just isn’t an option. i’ve worn the pair above out on the weekends several times because they’re so comfortable and add a lot of personality to an outfit. i also own two pairs of cowboy boots (because nashville) and recently got this marc fisher pair from poshmark.

statement boots:

these free people snakeskin booties DEFINITELY make a statement. i love these because the snakeskin print is neutral colors, allowing them to pair with so many things in my closet and adding immediate personality to a pretty basic outfit.

 

 

zara basics.

thank y’all so much for all of your kind words after wednesday’s post. being vulnerable is not my strong suit, and i appreciate all of the support! okay back to clothes 🙂

i first saw this sweater/sweatshirt/no really sure what to classify it back in december at the zara in disney springs. for some really dumb reason, i walked out of the store without it and haven’t really stopped thinking about it since. the bell sleeve isn’t too aggressive and the material is the SOFTEST (very wildfox-esque). i was so happy when i was browsing the zara sale section and found this top for under $15. honestly, i really should’ve bought it in every color.

at the risk of sounding like a loser, this outfit makes me feel very new york casual. i think its the loafers-they make me feel incredibly trendy and grown up.

details: zara bell sleeve shirt (very similar), rag and bone jeans, zara loafers (similar, really want these)

 

also, in case you’re having a bad day, here’s this ridiculous outtake:

 

 

beanies + boots.

 

details: old navy shirtdress, beanie, rag and bone boots, sunglasses

doesn’t get much fallier than plaid, boots, and a beanie. old navy has been killing it lately. EXCEPT this dress has shrunk a little each time i’ve washed it (by itself, on delicate, hung to dry mind you). i’m thinking by the next time i wear it, it will be proper tunic length. which is fine by me because it’s too cute to give up on altogether.
