Naturalizer Boots: Fashion-Forward Footwear That Fit!

If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly suggest you check out Naturalizer. Yes, Naturalizer.

I know that the brand name evokes old lady, orthapedic-looking shoes, but Naturalizer’s shoe and boots styles are anything but. The designs are classic (with a nod to current trends), versatile and super comfy.

My beloved Naturalizer Arness Boots

Last winter, I bought a pair of black riding boots and I’ve worn them at least 3 or 4 times a week through the spring. Now that it’s getting colder, they again have become my go-to footwear for fall. They look chic paired with a dress or skirt, and also with skinny jeans or leggings tucked in.

And for those of you with “athletic” calves or who wear a narrow or wide width shoe, you’re in luck because Naturalizer offers all of these options. Personally, I have wide feet and need a wide shaft boot – and I can tell you that it’s damn near impossible to find a cute boot that fits. But Naturalizer sells several.

I’m so happy with my black riding boots that I’m going to buy a brown pair…and my decision comes at the perfect time because they’re having a sale! Now through November 25, 2012, take 20% off your order at Naturalizer.com using promo code UWINT32A.

The “Juletta” boot (above) has been marked down to a very reasonable $179.99 – but with the coupon, it’s an even better $143.99!

Update: Use coupon code UWINT29A for 20% off all boots, plus an extra 15% and free shipping!

Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012

I’m absolutely obsessed with Ann Taylor’s Fall 2012 collection, which is “inspired by the continental glamour of 1960s Paris.” Last month, I posted about the ad campaign – starring Kate Hudson. The first images definitely had me intrigued. And now that the full collection has been revealed, I must admit that the teasers did not disappoint. I’m loving the black and white, pops of color, animal prints, and the sweet, feminine touches (i.e., lace and bows). It’s like someone at Ann Taylor climbed inside of my brain and created a collection just pour moi.

Here’s what’s on my ultimate wardrobe wish list:

This Tie Back Short Sleeve Sweater ($58) is business in the front, cocktail party in the back.

 

The White Leopard Ponte Dress ($138) is a must-have. And check out the edgy, exposed zipper on the sleeve. Genius, right? Rock on with your bad self, Kate! (more…)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What’s On My Wish List

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:

bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.

DV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.

Hue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx… (more…)
