Langstons’ Dingo Boot Giveaway Look of the Day-Keepin’ it Simple

Jeans (my closet, similar here); Belt (Ariat from Langstons); Boots (Dingo from Langstons); Jacket-Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply; Bag-TOTeM

What a whirlwind week it has been. We’ve been in London for 2 days, Edinburgh for 3, then 4 nights over on Loch Lomond that included day trips around the Cowal Peninsula to Tighnabruich, Dunoon, and Loch Fyne Oyster Bar. The weather has ranged from glorious hints of sun along with fresh snow at the top of Rest and Be Thankful pass (so named because in the 1880s passengers in 2nd and 3rd class had to get out of the coaches and push the 1st class passengers up the hill) to pouring rain and wind. Throughout it all, cold is the norm and bundling up is necessary.

So, with the challenging weather and landscape this outfit has been a variation of my mainstay look for this part of the country (which is thankfully very casual). And these sweet little Dingo boots have been a God send as I’m getting tired of tall boots with jeans on EVERY woman I see  (along with denim shorts and black tights with ballet flats…they are EVERYWHERE) which is always my cue to move on with any new purchases.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have tall boots with me too, but I prefer to wear them with a sweater dress and textured tights. So if you’re wanting to add new boots to your wardrobe, my money is on short boots this year (and an impromptu SuzieSurvey in London tells me THEY are the new direction for boots).

SuzieStyleSpring Florals

Remember those shoes I picked for April over on The Farmer’s Trophy Wife’s Spring Wardrobe Challenge? Well, here they are for real. Also recall that I’m over the bright jeans for Spring, instead favoring patterned denim in their place. Putting the two together I’ve come up with a little SuzieStyleSpring Floral display.

Does anyone else remember the last time big ol’ country cabbage roses made an appearance on the fashion scene 😉

Have a great day Y’all!



UCS Fashion Week – Thursday SuzieStyle

A few weeks back I showed you all my Spring 2011 inspiration “pictures”. This was one and I know some thought I was crazy…

because she’s all of 16, right!?!  So… I thought I needed to adjust for this anomaly and take an age handicap or something! If I  was going to recreate this lookbook for me, it needed some work or I needed serious plastic surgery :). I settled on the non-knife related work!

I know…it’s CrazySuzieStyle for some…but that’s probably an accurate description for me! [Side note: my sister just told me that even as a little kid my style was always “different”…not sure how to take that?!]

1) Overalls – thrifted; 2) Blouse – Ralph Lauren Sport; 3) Shoes – Christian Louboutin; 4) Purse _ Halston Heritage; 5) Necklace – garage sale!

Happy non-plastic surgery Thursday All :/



Today’s LazySuzieStyle

Lucked out on the way back from Seattle the other day and hit up the Premium Outlet Mall Ralph Lauren store. That blouse [Ralph Lauren Sport] was $20! and the Jeans [Ralph Lauren Premium Denim] were $59. Shoes are Aldo, free from my closet :).

Have a great day!
