Givenchy lace sandals in a nude, almost pink color with patent detailing made the ensemble a little more ladylike and added to the business-like feel of the blouse.
Denver is still pretty warm so here I am in probably my last pair of shorts for the season. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

Miu Miu Shearling-Lined Lace-Up Platform Boots in Dark Brown - Worn before here with 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket and Alice + Olivia leather shorts
Out of all my mohair sweaters I think this one is my favorite because it has a really cool rounded hem that dips lower in the back. Also, the blush color is just perfection. I like pink and I used to own a lot of pink stuff, but somewhere along the way I quit wearing it. Now I realize that pink looks pretty good on me, especially with my skin tone and hair. I think there might be a pink invasion on Fashion Snag in the near future, but I could always change my mind. I am picky like that. Anyway, this was my first purchase from the line By Malene Birger and I am very pleased with it. The name of the sweater, baquilla, actually caught my eye as well. I ordered it two sizes larger than what I would normally wear and I think it looks better this way. I also own a Graham & Spencer gray mohair sweater and a Sonia by Sonia Rykiel black mohair sweater. You could say I went a little overboard with the mohair, but I will never admit it. I never met a loose knit I didn't like. This one does shed a little bit so I keep my lint roller handy.
I kept the look from being too scandalous by wearing my trusty James Perse long tank underneath. This is a basic piece that I love and I always keep it out for layering purposes. I definitely want more of them. I streamlined the bottom half by wearing some stretchy shorts by Maggie Ward. I own these shorts in a lilac leopard print as well and also in plain black. They are easy to put on over tights and they don't wrinkle. I also like them underneath dresses that are too short. I don't think I will ever get sick of leopard print. Maggie Ward makes some fabulous pieces that are high quality. I also own some silk pants by her that I wore way back in the beginning of my blogging career. These ponte shorts are thick, but not so thick that they add any extra pounds. I noticed that Shopbop does not carry Maggie Ward anymore, but that is where I originally purchased the shorts.
For shoes, I wore my Miu Miu shearling boots. I love these boots so much and I basically want to wear them with anything and everything. They are ultra comfortable and they slip on due to the zipper in the back. The front lacing is just for show. You can't really unlace these puppies. The color is really unique as well and I think my boyfriend did a good job of capturing that. My favorite color to pair these boots with is blush.
