It wasn’t until this fall that I finally splurged on an investment pair of boots for my wardrobe, and these Stuart Weitzman 5050’s were worth every penny. I’ve been wearing them nonstop ever since! I love the over the knee style – the extra coverage is the perfect compromise when wearing a miniskirt like this black Aritzia piece. Showing a little leg also called for balance elsewhere; a loose knit sweater and a long trench keeps things looking classic and covered up. I topped it all off with this wool hat that I’ve been relying on for bad hair days all winter long, and a quilted Rebecca Minkoff mini bag. My favourite part about investment footwear? It instantly elevates the rest of your look, letting you mix in even more budget items – my coat, sweater, skirt, and hat were all under $100!
