Where to Shop Wednesday

Don Me Now

For my first post for my Wednesday "Where to Shop" topic I wanted to feature one of my good friend's boutique and style lounge in Hyde Park Village - Don Me Now. My friend Danielle McFarland opened earlier this year and ever since then has been busy styling her clients.

What makes this store unique is that you can shop for trendy must-haves or you can indulge in tailored styling session. With nine different personal styling options to choose from you can get quick advice with a 15-minute session or be red carpet ready after your 4-hour monthly personal styling experience. You can check out for more information about the styling services that are offered.

What I love about Danielle is that she takes her store to the next level by tagging items that are "Styling Stapes." And who would know better than a fashionista herself. These items are interchangeable and versatile for the season.

Some of the bright Summer scarves and belts

Danielle is so excited to roll out her new Fall merchandise and move summer items out. She has a wide variety of denim coming in and is excited to showcase her Fall collection to everyone.

Jewelry Tuesday

Chain Link Bracelets

With an ode to the one of the most influential designers of all time Coco Chanel, one of this Fall's jewelry trends is the interwoven chain link bracelet. The idea came from her chain link shoulder straps from the classic flaps. Karl Lagerfeld donned his runway muses in stacked black and white chain link bracelets. A simple yet timeless detail that you can wear with any outfit day or night.

Must Have Monday

Short Buckle Boots

In an effort to get a jump start on Fall trends I am loving the rebellious, motorcycle short buckle boots. Whether you want to pair them white skinny jeans to finish out the summer or to wait until fall to don this edgy look, no matter when all eyes will be on your feet. Styling these boots are easy you can pair them with skinny jeans, leggings, medi-skirts, mini skirts, shorts, and dresses. The best color to buy would be black, it will be the easiest to match to all your punk inspired outfits this fall. Check out Nicky Hilton and Kate Bosworth at Coachella. Nicky wore a basic black tank and cut-off shorts with her ankle buckle boots. Kate on the other hand wore a belted overlay dress and vest with her buckle boots.

This graphic sweater and black skirt by Clements Ribeiro's Fall 2013 runway collection is a great look for a cool, crisp day. 

Here Olivia Palermo paired her skinny jeans with a oversized fur vest and of course her buckle boots. 

Here are some stores to find the perfect buckle ankle boots for your look and style. Happy shopping!

Zara-Flat Ankle Buckle Boots $129

Roxy Holliston Boots $79 available at Buckle

Ash Vicious Studded Motorcycle Boots $360 available at Neiman Marcus
