Thrift Haul

Haul

Hello everyone!

I really enjoy thrifting for clothes and books. Many times you can really find one hell of an item for an amazing price. My younger sister and I recently went thrifting and found a bunch of goodies! So let’s jump into the photos! I’ve noted what stores we found them at and their amazing prices.

I’ve paired these items with other clothes, accessories and shoes in my closet to make simple looks for this post.

Enjoy!

Goodnight Macaroon Boot Review

Boot Review

Hello! I hope you all are having a great day.

Today I thought it would be fun to review a pretty popular boot among fashion influencers, Goodnight Macaroon’s Over the Knee Suede Leather Boot. It’s a beautiful boot with a two inch chunky heel that is a staple for your fall and winter wardrobes.

Purchase & Delivery

These boots come in ‘Ellis’ Black, ‘Carina’ Taupe, and ‘Marlo’ Tan. Last year I bought a pair of these boots in black and in taupe from the Goodnight Macaroon website. It’s on the pricey side in my opinion and I only shop there to get statement pieces for my closet maybe once a year. The boots have a size conversion chart from EU sizes to UK and US sizes. I had a coupon code from an Influencer that gave me 40% off my purchase, but they currently have their Cyber Monday sale at 30% off site-wide.

Products ship from India and took four days to arrive with expedited shipping of $10. I had to make sure I was home to sign for the packages since I didn’t have the ability to opt-out and have them leave it at the door. But once I received the product I was really impressed. These boots are soft! The quality is really nice and there weren’t any signs of glue on the outside or under the heel.

Try On

I know that over the knee boots can be a hassle to put on and take off, trust me. But dang these were so easy to put on! There was just the slightest pull on my jeans when I was putting them on, but it was easily fixed thanks to the zipper along the back of the boot. The zipper starts mid-calf and ends at the bottom of the heel. I also had room to wear a chunkier crew sock which is usually my remedy for the jean issue with taller boots.

The top of the boot reaches about mid-thigh on me. Usually I run into boots that are not tight enough on the thigh and fall down the longer I wear them. It is such a pain to keep tugging at the top of your boots to keep them in place. Luckily these guys stay in place and the only tugging I had to do was when I was taking them off.

I had worn them to my family’s Thanksgiving party last year and received so many compliments on them. The only things I can’t stand about this boot is that for the price they are seriously uncomfortable after two hours and there is little support from it’s thin sole.

I ended up buying inserts to fix the discomfort, but it’s annoying that a great boot like this was seriously lacking in something as simple as comfort.

Rating

Overall, I am going to give these boots 4 out of 5 stars. I love the boots despite the discomfort. It was an easy fix putting in the gel inserts, but it was still enough of a pain to dock a star. I would recommend this boot to someone who is wanting a beautiful boot that will catch eyes and turn heads regardless of the discomfort.

Until next time!


5 Cardigans You Need This Fall

Must Haves

Hello everyone, it’s Fall and it’s beautiful outside! Cardigans are a must in the fall and there are so many different kinds to choose from. Luckily for you I went onto a few sites in order to gather options for your cardigan selections.

I wanted to chose a variety of stores so they didn’t all feel or look the same. I also provided photos so you can see the way each lays and their lengths. These will also be added to my Pinterest incase you would like to save them for style inspiration.

I’d love to know if anyone buys one of these cuties. Tag me on your social media if you do!

Enjoy!
