Crocs and Pavement Day 5

Today is the last day of looks from my photoshoot with Crocs and Pavement. Check back through my other posts to see the rest of the photos.

I thought I’d end the week with my favorite outfits, these dresses and boots. Like I said in my last post, these sleek Crocs ankle booties look marvelous with a dressier outfit. This black smock dress has a wonderfully playful look about it with its gathering at the top and bell sleeves. The pattern has such a nice vintage flair to it. Even though this dress is more modest the boots kick it up a notch.

I love the silhouette these black boots create with black leggings. They look so chic with this gorgeous purple dress. The ruffle spilling over the belt is extremely flattering. The whole ensemble is girly with an edge.

Special thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to help with this photoshoot, especially Justinea Vidic of Crocs who made this all possible. Thanks for everything!

Crocs and Pavement Day 4

For the rest of the week I will be posting looks from my photoshoot with Crocs and Pavement with Pittsburgh as our backdrop. Check back throughout the week for more updates.

In areas like Pittsburgh and Cleveland, a winter coat is a wardrobe staple from end of October to Early April. Considering how often we don our coats, I believe they are just as important as any other piece of clothing when it comes to establishing individual style. That is perhaps why Pavement has such a great selection. The plaid pattern of this coat has a vintage feel to it. It reminds me of a Christmas Story because it looks like the kind of warm and practical coat that would be worn in the 1940s but with great stylistic details. I love the double brass buttons and the large collar that you can pull up over your ears when the winter winds start to pick up.

If you have a good utilitarian coat you also need a dress coat. Like I said, we take our coats seriously. The ruffle on Sarrah’s coat is adorable. A white coat is so bright and crisp even on the dreariest of winter days. The best part is that this coat can be worn for special occasions or just running around town. This pair of Crocs ankle booties also can be worn with jeans or for work especially if your job requires business casual dress but you still do a lot of walking. These booties will keep your feet warm, dry and most importantly they are comfortable.

Crocs and Pavement Day 3

For the rest of the week I will be posting looks from my photoshoot with Crocs and Pavement with Pittsburgh as our backdrop. Check back throughout the week for more updates. 

I never thought I would be very interested in a mini skirt until I saw these updated versions at Pavement. It was practically love at first site. I knew these cute boots with their fold over cuff would go well with this long sleeve cowl neck shirt and stripe skirt as soon as I saw them styled on Pavement’s Facebook page, which has amazing outfit inspiration by the way. The shirt is a really soft cotton material and the cowl neck and cut are extremely flattering. The skirt is perfect if you are not the type of person who can just wear leggings and a top. It adds that extra pop of color. This is one of those outfits that looks and feels amazing.

I love the colors of this outfit. The tribal print skirt is a perfect compliment to these suede boots. Also the purples in the skirt and sweater really go well with the boot’s chestnut color. The edges of the sweater are wide like a poncho but with sleeves. It lays so nicely over the fitted skirt and leggings. I feel like this outfit could be worn out to the bar or dinner and still provide that cute look, while staying warm. I wish I knew layering could be fashionable in college.

Crocs and Pavement Day 2

For the rest of the week I will be posting looks from my photoshoot with Crocs and Pavement with Pittsburgh as our backdrop. Check back throughout the week for more updates. 

The Smithfield bridge near Station Square was our next location. I love how the girly fashions contrast with the bridge’s steel structure. The flowy bow-tie blouse I am wearing also plays well against the rugged features of these chestnut suede boots and jeans. The combination of tan and turquoise reminds of the American west. I am glad the girls at Pavement talked me out of my comfort zone with this blouse because I was very pleased with the results. Something that will work many different ways is always a great addition to one’s closet.

Speaking of American West how amazing are these faux-fur boots? You could definitely do some hiking through a forest in these and not worry about your feet being cold. I love the mixing of brown and black hues and textures. These boots call for an outfit on the more subtle side, but still require a small dose of fashion-forward. This loose knit sweater with its sheer quality and interesting cut provide that. Don’t be fooled by the sheerness of it. This sweater is extremely warm and soft.

Crocs and Pavement Day 1

I could not be more excited to share with you my most recent collaboration with Crocs. Their boots for the fall and winter seasons have impressed me once again because of their ability to stay true to their comfortable roots while still offering fashion-forward styles. The boots come in gorgeous, rich fall colors and luxe materials. I think I could fall asleep wearing their suede boots they are so comfortable. 

To offer some complete fall looks, we teamed up with Pavement a local boutique in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh. I am in love with every outfit we shot. 

Joining me this time is Sarrah Beyer of Esbi International Salon & Spa who did an amazing job with not only our hair and makeup but modeling too. I have never felt more glamorous and confident.

Here is the first round of outfits. Join me every day this week to see the different outfits. Enjoy!

We knew we wanted to do part of the shoot on Mt. Washington. It has the best view of Pittsburgh. The city turned out to be a great backdrop for these all American looks. Sometimes jeans and a t-shirt is all you need. Add this patchwork shawl made out of recycled materials and these brown suede boots and you get the right amount of texture and subtle hues for a more laid-back but put-together look.

It doesn’t get more American than fringe and a motor cycle jacket. For an updated twist, try this classic jacket in a softer material. The braided fringe scarf adds another element and a subtle pop to this all black ensemble. A nice pair of tall suede black boots do all the talkin’.
