Take Your Blogging to the Next Level in 2014 with The Blogcademy!

The Blogcademy 2014 World Tour

In August 2012, we launched The Blogcademy with a single date in New York, not knowing what to expect. Six days later, the class sold out and we’ve been traveling the world ever since, teaching women the strategy behind blogging. Our last few classes of the year are quickly approaching so we’ve been dreaming big for 2014 and listening to your city suggestions.

I Found The Holy Grail Of Black Boots at Zara

Why does it seem like the most basic staples in our wardrobe end up being the most elusive to find? I’d been on the lookout for a nearly flat pair of stylish black boots for awhile but kept coming up empty-handed. I have plenty of black boots but they were all a little too dressy — none of them were ideal for long walks with Rocky or rainy days.

Then, for my birthday I got a Zara gift certificate so I figured I’d start there. And after a little digging, I found the holy grail of black boots: black leather, low heel height, great traction, cool hardware, a comfortable rounded toe and priced under $200.00. I ordered them and waited, not expecting much. These basics always seem to look better in their online photographs than in real life, right?

But when they finally arrived and I slipped them on, they had a nice, roomy fit and were ridiculously comfortable. They’re now the pair of shoes I leave by the door to slip on and go.

For Fall and Winter, I’m definitely leaning towards well-made, simple monochromatic basics. I’m at the point where my beloved staples including the coat and purse I use every day are wearing out after a few years of nonstop wear. I want things that can easily be dressed up or down and will last me a long time.

These are some basics I’ve got my eye on: Saturday Buckle-over Dress, Kate Spade Literary Glasses Scarf and the Proenza Schouler PS11 Bag which would all go perfectly with the Zara Zip Ankle Boots.

Are there any attire basics that you’re currently on the hunt for?
