How to Style: Fall Boots

Every year when Fall rolls around I tend to become boots obsessed! To be more specific, I become obsessed with ankle boots. There’s just something about ankle boots that makes my heart pitter-patter! While I tend to gravitate toward styles that are flat this year I’ve had my eye on ones with a stacked heel. I can’t walk on an itty-bitty heel and not look drunk, so the support of a stacked heel is always a thumbs up for this gal. 

Anyway, today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite stack heeled ankle boots for Fall and ways on how to style them up! I’ve also brought you a couple more options because what girl doesn’t like options. Am I right? Oh and all options are under $100!

Look 1: (All items under $40!) The hat may bring the boho but the booties sure do bring the glam! Whether for a day playing tourist in our own city or an easy breezy brunch with the girls, this peep toe stacked heel option adds a little something to any outfit pairing. I also love the touch of gold!

Shop look 1: Tee | Midi Skirt | Hat | Bucket Bag | Boots 

Look 2: Perfect for an easy date night, this feminine look is sweet with a little extra somethin’ something’. The cutout of this bootie option keeps it on trend while the neutral color make it easy to pair with absolutely anything from a sweet floral frock to a pair of cuffed black skinnies and cute peplum top!

Shop look 2: Jacket | Dress | Necklace | Boots

Look 3: This look is probably my favorite! I love the comfort both the distressed boyfriends jeans and the sweatshirt bring to the table but the the booties, complete with a fringe zipper, add that little touch of cool that elevates the typical slouchy outfit.

How to Style: Stripe T-shirt Dress

A t-shirt dress is an extremely versatile piece to have on hand that can easily become a wardrobe workhorse. With my move back East, my clothing options are going to be awfully limited for a while so I’m going to have to remix the heck out of the pieces I have available. My trusty t-shirt dress (worn here) is definitely going to be among those pieces so in today’s edition of How to Style I’m sharing three different ways to style a t-shirt dress for Fall from running errands, to the office, and for a date night.

16 Ways to Wear Converse Sneakers

If you’ve been a long time reader of Fabulously Average then you are well aware that I’m a Converse girl all the way! I’ve always been one to favor the value of a sneaker versus pumps. I wore them way before they became popular on the Internets and well before even hitting puberty. In my adolescent tall girl mind, Converse sneakers were perfect because they didn’t add any additional height;) Excellent logic, I know, but when you’re the tallest girl in your class you avoid heels at all costs. Between my love for the ultimate sneaker, frilly dresses, and sports, Converse essentially helped mold girl meets boy style. 

Today I’ve rounded up some ways I’ve worn Converse on the blog. I’m sure I have a bevy of other posts where I’ve styled my cool kicks but these 16 looks first came to mind. From incorporating the sneakers into my maternity style, to dressing them up with skirts and dress, here are 16 ways to wear Converse sneakers!
