State of the Blog: You Did What?!?!


I’m currently posting from my iPhone.  Why?  Because I dropped my laptop.  On a marble floor.  Corner first.

I screamed.  Loudly.  I’m still screaming in my head.

I’m going to pick up a new one at the Apple Store tomorrow before I leave D.C.. God bless, Apple Care.  But before I call it quits, I want to direct you to an amazing pair of shoes that has saved my feet over the past two days.


Aldo Favischio Ankle Boots ($130)

These Aldo ankle boots have an under-3″ heel (the best), the arch is neither too high, nor too low, and a rubber sole, which is like a shock absorber for your feet.  I love them.  If you need black, they also come in a black leather with a black heel.

Need a cheaper option?  These H&M booties have a small platform for added comfort.  For a more office appropriate look, H&M also has you covered with these $40 pointed-toe booties.

See you tomorrow!  xo, Belle

    Do you have any advice for wearing ankle boots/boots in general with skirts and NOT looking ridiculous? I don’t wear skirts above the knee or pants for religious/cultural reasons and I feel like wearing a longer skirt with ankle boots just looks weird.

    Spilled Lemsip on mine last week – too upsetting! Posting from my iPad mini!

    DId you pair these with jeans? If so, I’m curious to know how you styled them (straight, skinny, cuffed, tucked, etc).

    Sorry to hear about your laptop! Hope that your wait at Apple isn’t terribly long.

    Very sorry to hear about your laptop! I echo a couple of these comments – love these, but am perplexed how to wear brown ankle boots/booties with a skirt. Black is no problem – pair with black leggings, but brown/cognac seems much more challenging. Suggestions? Thanks for your wonderful blog!
