What I Wore: Art Prize

While I have no intention of turning this into a fashion blog, I do have a nice camera and a decent closet. Why not showcase it every now and again? So here is my first style post!

Spending several hours at Art Prize (or any daytime festival, really) requires good walking shoes and layers. I've been on the hunt for some nice black leather boots for a while now, but with limited financial resources and rather specific standards for boots, I was unsuccessful. Then I realized that I already had a great pair of black leather boots in my closet, just sitting there collecting dust: my field boots.

For those who don't know, field boots (or tall boots) are the equestrian version of heels -- you wear them on dressier, more formal occasions, like shows. But I'm not riding at the moment, and I see no reason to avoid wearing them until I get back on a show horse. Since they're technically exercise wear, they're actually pretty comfortable, so I paired them with some white skinny jeans, and headed out on the town.

It's been years since I followed the white after labor day rule. My philosophy is that white works any time of the year as long as it's paired appropriately, which is why I brought out the burgundy knit, leather jacket, and the pashmina -- all together (and especially with the boots), it's an autumn-oriented outfit. Details below.
