Happy New Year everyone - 2011 was a wonderful and exciting year, but now let's ring in a new year and hope for an even better and brighter year ahead. Cheers to a new beginning!

I have been on a search for a pair of leather ankle boots for quite some time now until my eyes caught onto these on Boxing Day. These beautiful ankle zip booties were on sale so I picked them up almost immediately. Even though they are 4.5 inches high, I discovered that they are surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in after taking a light stroll outside. I love the classic, chic and understated look with the gorgeous contrasted zipper and sole. I haven't had the chance to wear them out this winter break since the streets have been slippery, but I imagine that they will be my go-to shoes for Winterlicious 2012!

The winter break has come to an end for me and although I am jealous of those who have an extended break, I'm prepared to tackle my last and final term before I graduate. Time really does fly.


  1. You look beautiul. I love your coat, bag but especially your shoes.
    Happy New Year 2012!

  2. love shoes! a very nice find :)

  3. Your boots are nice. Looks good with the tights. I also like your coat. It's fitted to perfection.


  4. Happy New Year too you as well!! I love this look because living in Canada it get extremely cold and I am always looking for outfit inspiration in the winter! Beautiful blog,

    Lacey xoxo

  9. Yay J Brands! I swear once you wear jeggings you'll never want to go back to reg jeans. And I love those boots. Have a great final semester :)

  10. Be careful of the buttons on the coat, mine must've came off many times and I'd always have to sew it back on :(.

    Good luck for this school's semester, you'll be done before you know it!

    Happy New Year :)

  11. Very chic winter look. Good luck with your studies and happy new year!

  15. Your coat is just gorgeous. I love long coats because they keep you warm even when wearing a skirt. Your bag is the perfect contrast to the outfit.

  18. The style factor of my outfits always goes down with dipping temperatures, and I think that beautiful basics like your coat are what I need to get out of this cold-induced style rut. I love your outfit - so simple but incredibly fashionable!

    Hope you had a great weekend!
