I don’t know what phenomenon this falls under but I tend to cherish more things that I buy on a bargain. My Celine luggage tote I got on full price doesn’t get the same VIP treatment as my Fendi Silvana which I got at Bergdoff Goodman for 65% off, and it was the last one left! I am sure the same is going to go for these new in Lanvin ankle boots I got from the Outnet (to my instagram lovelies; this was what was in the box). They were the last pair left and they also happened to be in my size, talk about destiny. I know they are so last season to some people but they are such a classic pair so to me they are so in season!

It’s getting a little warmer so this would be a perfect time to get those shorts out and wear them over tights with ankle boots or booties. I usually don’t do short shorts at all even in summer but with tights underneath, I can roll with the flow. I also want to try this with cuffed denim shorts before summer comes. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are geared up for the work week ahead.

  1. what a lovely look!! those boots are fab, and very classy, they certainly go beyond any season!!! love the way you belted the jacket too!!!

  2. Gorgeous! I really like how high and narrow the ankle is on these boots. Also, I don’t subscribe to this or that season, in or out, so I’m really glad to see that you just bought what you love regardless of its date of origination :-)
