I've been on the hunt for a g o o d pair of red booties for a couple months now - until I found theeeeeeese. Everywhere I looked, I just could not find the right style that would suit me. Either the heel would be too short, my size was sold out, or I'd find a pair way out of my price range. It seems as if those were my ongoing issues with solving my red bootie fix. I finally found this pair at Steve Madden and instantly loved the pointed toe with the chunky blocked heel. Red is just like a neutral that can be paired with so many shades in your wardrobe to make a bold pop when needed. Not to mention, the color red is so sexy! I pulled the look together with my new striped sweater that I love oh so much from my friends over at Dylan Wylde during their Holla Day party back in December. I do plan on wearing it a few more times with denim or a skirt before I put it away until it gets cold enough again. Sweater weather will be over soon in Texas...and I don't know if I'm excited about that or sad?

Just as I was toward the end, I thought I'd add a little bit of encouragement to this post. At first I was thinking; "wait this is just supposed to be an outfit post." But whatever. I thought about Oprah's speech at the Golden Globes last night and felt so inspired. If you didn't get a chance to catch it live then here it is. Just remember ladies; you are enough. Enough to create change, enough to speak up, enough to stand up, and enough to run anything you want. YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.
