There are some mornings when I wake up and I feel overwhelmed by what I have to do to get out of the house. My first priority is always Nate (change, feed, play, etc..) but after that, I always try to make myself feel put together.

For my outfit, I have a few rotating “uniforms,” many of which include all black or a crisp white button down. In most cases, I rely on my accessories, especially my footwear, to make a basic look significantly more interesting. That’s my favorite part about all of the incredible statement booties that Marc Fisher LTD has been coming out with. So many good styles (like these!) that elevate even the most basic looks. If your style is more playful, I love the idea of mixing florals with another pattern. There are so many interesting ways this new trend can be worn, depending on what your vibe is! I’m all about it and excited to think of fun ways to wear one of my favorite trends this season.

For hair and makeup, if I’m washing my hair, rather than throwing into a sleek or messy bun, I’ll plan accordingly and wash and style the night before. The less things I need to do in the morning, the better! Typically, makeup is minimal. If my skin looks good, I have a routine that takes 5 minutes or less. I haven’t 100% mastered it, but I’m almost there.

 Thank you to Marc Fisher LTD for partnering on this post

    Love that you let the booties shine, cute Fall look.


  • Fatou Diaw

    i love the print on those boots!

  • Sharon

    This is such a great trend to dress up any simple outfit in the winter. I’m always out and about and this is a much better option than a statement heel when it’s freezing out. I can’t believe I’m already planning for winter, nooo. Have a great weekend!

  • Jae

    Love the idea of statement boot! Instant way to elevate your outfit.

  • Ewa Macherowska

    Amazing boots <3

    Boom, in the cart. Thank you for continuing to enable my shopping habit 🙂

  • Natali

    Oh yes, washing and styling your hair the night before does a big difference. You’re always looking flawless and I’m loving your minimalistic and elegant outfit. Those boots gave a glam-chic touch to a regular every day combo.

  • Kristina

    I’m in love with your booties! There are already several statement boots on my wishlist, I really need at least one pair for fall/winter!

    I’m sorry but the minute I saw this post, I just had a feeling it was sponsored. This is not you (to me). But you may argue this. This trend is more five minutes, or simply if you have the money to blow. Please show other statement boots that you wear, from other brands… curious to see. I’m sorry for being a Debbie downer, not my favorite look from you.

      Hi Elaine,

      Not a Debbie Downer! I truly appreciate that you expressed your opinion in a nice way! Thank you for that.

      I had the choice of a ton of their boots and opted for these (among a few other styles) because I thought they’d be fun with a super simple outfit! I agree – not my usual go-to’s, but I did genuinely like them! BUT, i’ll definitely be sure to share some other statement booties in the upcoming weeks. I ended up buying the plaid boot that’s on my current side bar, so as long as they look good in person, you’ll be seeing those, too!

      For both styles, since they’re reasonable-ISH, it’s something fun to play around with.

      Thank you again! xo

  • Lauren

    Love this outfit!

    Question about the jeans…I have had a hard time with really dark denim as a lot of them bleed on to light colors, even after many washes. Do these jeans bleed on to light colors? I am assuming not because of your white shirt 🙂 I have been on the hunt for a great pair of dark denim that doensn’t bleed color. I love my Joe’s but they are only good with black or dark tops lol.

    • Helena

      Hi Lauren,
      to be quite honest, these jeans are on the newer side and I haven’t washed them yet, but I haven’t noticed any bleeding. So far, so good!

  • nicole Sioui

    These boots are nice, but the flower print is a bit overwhelming for footwear. The (tan plaid bootie with the red heel under 200) in your SHOP MY FAVORITES section seems to be more your style. 🙂

    • Helena

      Hi Nicole,

      Totally get it! I ordered those (the plaid) and hope they look as great in person!

  • Jalisa

    Those booties are gorgeous and I love the way you’ve styled them in both outfits! As a new mama, I can definitely relate, statement pieces make looking put together and stylish that much easier! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend!
