November 1st has come and gone, which means high school seniors (like myself) can finally take a breather. The last month or so has been extremely hectic with college apps, school, extracurricular activities, and so on. I am so happy to finally be back and writing on LIV in Style. I have so many fun projects I can't wait to share with you, especially a new add on to the blog called LIV for Culture. In the meantime... cozy up with a warm cup of cocoa, a big fuzzy blanket, and enjoy some tips on how to rock scarves and boots this fall.
All three of these photos are your standard, and most common, styles when it comes to wearing scarves. In the first photo we have Leya wearing a cute tasseled scarf with a Burberry pattern in the style typically called the double wrap. In the middle, Leya's dark maroon, navy, and gray plaid scarf is in the loop-n-through style. Lastly, instead of being in a straight line this scarf is crafted in a circle, otherwise known as an infinity scarf. To style this scarf, wrap it two or three times (depending on length) around your neck and fluff it up for extra volume.
If these styles seem a little too basic for you, try out the one pictured below. Not quite sure the name of this style because I made it up when Leya and I were shooting this blog (lol). Let's just pretend its called the French knot, because that sounds pretty official. Using the same scarf pictured above, Leya breaks down step by step the process of achieving the French knot. Personally this one has to be my favorites because of how unique and cool it looks peeking out of a zipped up parka!
Boots! One of my favorite things about fall is getting to break out all of my beloved shoes from hibernation. First up we have ankle boots, or more cutely named, booties. Generally heeled, booties are often paired with wide leg pants and/or boot cut jeans. However, since I spend most of my days at school, I usually gravitate toward lower heeled booties and skinny jeans for the sake of practicality. In the second picture we have two pairs of lace up ankle boots (the brown pair being more casual, and the black suede wedges leaning more toward the fancy side). Combat boots and other tall lace ups would also fall under this category. In picture three we have our odd ball. These faux Doc Martin boots have got to be my all time favorite steal. For just $10 on clearance at Marshall's these wool and vinyl zip up boots add a fun edgy flare to a simple look. Finally we have a fall staple, knee high boots. In Michigan we only get two seasons out of the year to wear these shoes everyday of the week, so have at it! These boots seriously go great with everything! Dresses, jeans, skirts, leggings, you name it. My only advice would be to stay away from wider leg pants, unless you plan on having them placed over your boots.
However you plan on wearing your boots and scarves this fall just remember to wear them confidently and comfortably, and always LIV in Style.
