Anonymous asked: so I recently purchased the nasty gal ShoeCult Sparks Bootie, and I need help on how to style it. can you give me any tips?

hi! sorry it took me a bit to get back to you on this.

those boots are a great staple to add to your wardrobe! with the little hit of sparkle, they’re great to glam up pretty much any look.

if you’re doing something casual in the day, pair with distressed BF jeans or shorts (throw on a wide belt w em) and a crop top and tie a flannel around your waist for extra layering. 

another easy day look would be to pair these with skinny high waisted jeans and an off the shoulder sweater in taupe/cream/dusty gray, a bunch of stackable rings, and some long, delicate necklaces. 

for an simple (but by no means boring) night look pair with a black mini dress (long sleeves are perf) and sheer black tights, and a hit of delicate gold jewelry.

for something more put together try them with leather pants and a chunky turtleneck

would also look great w/ a tartan pencil skirt and crop tee, or if you’re not into crops try this look with a graphic crewneck and some costume jewels around your neck. + cat eye sunglasses for extra oomph. 

hope this helps! xx

"Even the smallest positive effort can create a radical shift in your perspective. Even the smallest positive effort can begin to create a powerful, forward-focused momentum.
If it seems you’re going through a bad stretch, make the choice to change your momentum. Then step decisively forward and act on that choice.
The way to change something is to do something. You can wish and worry and complain until you’re blue in the face, yet nothing good is likely to happen until you act to make it happen.
When you avoid any effort, life can seem endlessly overwhelming. Yet the moment you start to do something you’re suddenly connected, almost as if by magic, to all kinds of positive options.
Though you may not feel like it, and though you may have to do it on faith, take a small positive step. Make a little effort in a good and positive direction, and you’ll be making a big change in your momentum.
Your actions absolutely can make a difference, so choose to use that power. Act to give your momentum a change for the better, and delight in the new direction in which you’re headed."

#words to live by #things to remember #advice #inspiration 

Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
