I'm partial to sleek, minimal, and timeless designs that easily slip into your wardrobe and fill a void perfectly. Take these boots from By Blanch for example, a durable and comfortable pair of black ankle boots are always in style and always appropriate. These are an excellent foundational piece because they have all the luxury qualities you desire, special visual details to keep them fashionable, and they won't cost you your whole paycheck.
By Blanch is a lovely French, PETA approved vegan shoe label that's just launched their new collection. Trendy, chic, elegant, and cruelty-free are words that come to mind with regard to their designs. Their synthetic leather is luxurious and has the look and feel of leather without the actual leather! The soles of their shoes are sturdy yet comfortable, even after wearing my Nightfall boots all day the soles were barely worn and they still looked brand new. The buckle detail on my boots along with the stitching not only provide style but really give them a luxury quality because the materials are exceptional.
For this episode of A Harmless Project I styled my Nightfall boots with a grey matching sweater and midi skirt ensemble from Madewell. Top and skirt combos like this one are really on trend right now; they're perfect for this transition weather and especially for Fall (whenever that finally hits LA!). I like this grey version because it's simple and easy to throw on at a moments notice for a polished look. Here the boots are the focal point and give the whole outfit the ability to be daywear or nightwear. The best part about this outfit is that all the pieces can be worn separately so you're getting more band for your buck. I like to pair this sweater with jeans and heeled boots and the skirt with a blouse or t-shirt and sneakers. My Nightfall boots go with everything so I wear them with sheath dresses, maxi dresses, jeans, trousers, and mini skirts alike!
