Winter is among us ladies & gentlemen.

Ever since I could remember, fall/winter season has ranked as my overall favorite time of year, but this time around, I enter this seasonal shift from booty shorts to knit sweaters with a bit of apprehension.

The weather just hasn’t been right.

This could very well be based on my bias opinion, being that I’ve been spoiled by”barely” fall days and 60 degree Christmas’. But chile, these last few weeks have prohibited me from leaving my apartment without first wrapping myself up to enter butt-cutting 30 degree weather.

Not to mention this will be my very first NYC winter. *cries a little* I haven’t seen snow, like real snow, in over 8 years. So this should be fun. Image result for upside down emoji

At any rate, while I mentally prepare myself for the emotional roller coaster of soul chilling weather, at least I can be distracted from by my fall/winter shoe game.

Leather Ankle Boots: this style of boot is a Fall/Winter MUST-HAVE. This short and sleek style is functional enough to take you from work to an evening happy hour. Pair these with you favorite skinny jeans or even a midi dress.

Snake Skin Booties: When the majority of your wardrobe has become all Blackity-Black like mine does, it’s important to incorporate different textures/patterns into your mix. This snake skin material is also the perfect starting place for your attempt at print mixing as well!

Pointed-Toe Flats: Working at a advertising agency gives me a bit of leniency when it comes to what I wear on a day-to-day basis but whenever I want to put on my best professional face, these are my go to’s. Plus, did I mention how comfortable these puppies are?

Over-the-Knee Boots: if you’re reading this and don’t have a pair of over-the-knee boots in your fall/winter wardrobe, it’s not too late! (sorry for the Drake reference) I will say that if you don’t get another pair of shoes as these cold months bombard us, you need these. The over-the-knee style is ultra vertical and warm, adding extra coverage to those lovely legs of yours. Want to spruce up your basic t-shirt and jeans fit? Slip on a ripped dress? Or cover your knees when wearing a mini skirt with stockings? Whether they are flat, stiletto, or chunky heel, your over-the-knee boots have you covered… literally.

when i first set out to create my blog, i just wanted an outlet to balance my mundane college schedule. but over the years, it has become so much more. writing is how i process my world & the events that take place within it. through aleyarion.com, i seek to help my fellow 20-somethings, like me, working to find light when their paths seem darkened and learn from my mistakes so i can save you the trouble of repeating them. aleyarion.com is witty, vulnerable, and transparent, but most importantly, it's me, unapologetically. peace, peace, peace Aley Arion business inquiries: aleyarion@gmail.com
