sugar and spice

jacket - target (similar) | dress - h&m purchased through IG store (similar) | tights - target | boots - shoemint (similar similar)

You may have seen on Instagram that I've gone and chopped off my locks.  These pictures were taken about an hour prior to that happening.   Don't worry you'll see the new do in due time! (wink)
I purchased this gorgeous dress from an IG bud (@memoirofapreppymomscloset) thinking I could wear it in several different ways and I plan to!  I cannot wait to get my hands on cobalt heels so I can pair them with this for spring and summer.   I toughened it up with the moto and OTK boots.  
OTK boots have been a tough style for me to nail this season.  I feel too risqué pairing them with tight denim and a top and feel they are much more chic looking with dresses and skirts.  Makes you wonder if you're too "OLD" for a trend.   
Do you guys ever think that?   I know a lot of other bloggers are in their early twenties.  Being 30 I often have to ask myself if a trend works in my life before I pull the trigger. 

Linking up for Mix It Monday 
I've styled these boots here and here and this jacket here

  3. LOVE your new shorter hair...can't wait to see more pics! This is such a great mix of girly and tough. I am the opposite with my OTK boots...I only wear them with pants/jeans and pairing them with dresses/skirts scares me!
