Boots vs. Booties


I'm completely in love.

With a sweater.

A sweater I saw on Instagram......which led me to Kiki La'Rue.

I resisted for a few days after the sweater-sighting.  Because I was trying to behave.  But my spending bans are always short-lived. And finally, it became mine.

I love the tribal design.  I love the fit and how soft the knit is.

I was super impressed with how fast they shipped it annnnd with the cute packaging!  They even included a Kiki La'Rue koozie!  Talk about a fun mail day..........


My question for you is, boots or booties?

I love my new booties, but I'm not sure how to style them.  Is this all wrong?  Stick with the riding boots?  HELP!

But let's get back to the sweater.

Did I mention how much I love it?  I might wear it for Turkey Day, which I am hosting.

Yep, that is happening.  My little house is having company.

I have never hosted a gathering for any holiday.

Let the cleaning frenzy commence!!!

  6. This sweater is perfect. I think the booties look best with this, but the boots look great too. I would say boots for work/day, booties for going somewhere fun!

  15. When I saw this sweater I completely thought of you!! I am kicking myself for not scooping it up too! Becka at Kiki LaRue is the best!! And I like it both ways...ankle boots and riding boots. You can also wear this one with leggings! Try some black ones with those red vintage boots you have...now that would be fun!! ;) Happy Thanksgiving and thank for linking up! Love ya!

  18. Great sweater and so perfect for turkey day. :) Plenty of room. :)
    I like the booties better - they let the sweater shine and something about the proportion is better. :)
    Hope your gathering is wonderful! Happy Thanksgiving, pretty lady!

  23. Cute! It looks great with both (those cobalt jeans are SO great) but I'm leaning more towards the booties. :-)

  28. Hmmm....I really love both, but I am definitely digging the booties look!!

  29. That is quite possibly the cutest tribal print sweater I have ever seen, and it looks amazing on you! As much as I love the taller boots look, I have to go with the booties! They just seem to go with the sweater more (and make your legs look longer which is always a plus in my book haha).
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  30. With this particular combo, I like the taller boots better, but either one works. Hope hosting the holiday went well! :)

  31. I love the booties better, I feel like the tall boots take away from the sweater, which I LOVE!

  32. Love it, I've been eyeing that FOREVER!!! But I ended up getting the boathouse sweater...feeling a little pang of regret right now if we're being honest haha. I love it with both boots and booties...but if I HAD to pick, maybe booties!

  33. Love your new sweater. You totally deserved it, or course :). I like it with the boots but it seems I might be in the minority.

  34. I am no expert either, but it actually looks good on both, but the booties matched with the sweater. That sweater reminds me of my vintage cape in black with some southwestern detailing that I am really sad to sell because it is just not right for my short frame. I am going to post it on my blog and maybe I could find a new home for it. :) Love the sweater!
