Boots + A Room

I have had many request to bring back my 'what I wore' posts. Now that I am dwindling down my wardrobe to only what I LOVE and trying not to shop much for a year, well I am thinking they would get quite boring very fast. Today is different though. I got these fabulous boots and I never want to take them off! They feel like slippers and make the upcoming rainy season a little more exciting. I got them from Monika's new shop Splendid Willow Avenue. Love her and her new shop. She has impeccable taste.  Oh, and yes I am one of those that wears shades when it is dreary and rainy out. Bright natural light hurts my eyes. ha.


and if I were a room I would like to be this one for today. I think we would look smashing together in my little get up...

 boots: Ilse Jacobsen
sweater: J.Crew
leggings: J. Crew
gray tee: Target

thanks for bringing back the outfit posts! i just entered the 30 for 30 challenge at kendi everyday (have you heard of it??) so i'm learning to remix my outfits so i only have items i love, but don't wear the same thing every day! much needed for a girls whose go-to outfit is leggings and a big sweater!

Katie Baba Nielson said...

and by that i meant me!-- my go-to is leggings and a big sweater because it's soooo cold!

Andrea said...

I can't think of a better model for Ilse Jacobsen! You look adorable and Scandinavian hip!

Thank you so much for the mention, Paula. You made my day.

And that room is stunning. The black and white rug really ties it all together.

Warm hugs to you,

Thank you for this chic inspiration!!!

Coastalpines said...

You always look fabulous and effortless! Shades are good in any light, wards off wrinkles from squinting!

Kayla said...

thanks for bringing back 'what i wore'. i love your style!

take it from me- a year is a loooong time to not shop. i'm 4 months into my 'year off of shopping' and i'm dying-- but it does make you appreciate your clothes and you realize how important it is to shop smart [not just buy things b/c they're on sale]

Delishhh said...

Coming over from Monika! LOVE LOVE the boots. I got a pair of black ones and love them!

Estelle said...

Love the look. Love the room. I wouldn't mind sitting down there right about now for a cup of french press. Thank you very much.

Cat said...

i wear shades every time i go outside...even if it'd cloudy. if i don't, i'm constantly squinting!

Anne said...

Your boots are cute for sure! But would you mind sharing the brand of your shades? Love 'em!

Sarah Klassen said...

Love the boots on you, Paula! They are definitely the most chic and well-made boots that I have come across to date. I cannot wait to have a pair as well :)

Cassie said...

Completely with you on the whole sunglasses thing - mine never seem to leave my head in the car whatever the season.

Gorgeous boots! I must show my snazzy new pair of Hunters off soon, thanks for reminding me.

Hi Paula.
Congratulations on your fab Swedish boots. I adore my dear friend Monika and am over the moon that she is representing our beloved Sweden through her shop.

Loving the way you teamed yourself with that gorgeous room. A perfect match.
