This past weekend was the perfect opportunity to break out my new Zara ankle boots. It was a little bit chilly on Sunday, so I decided it was a good idea to wear these and keep my feet warm. Anyway, I love this cardigan my little sister got me for Christmas from Christopher & Banks … YUP you read that correctly… this is from Christopher & Banks! It just goes to show you never know where you are going to find something great!

I really like this look! I agree that there are actually a few decent things from Christopher and Banks, guess it’s not just a store for my 55 year old mom, lol! I like stripes and denim together, they work well!

This is totally one of my all time favorite outfits you’ve posted!
Rachel's LookbookSeptember 17, 2013 at 7:51 PM
Thank you! And YES and NO. This was my first time wearing them, so they were pretty stiff around the ankle (and I have big ankles anyway), but the heel height is perfect and they are easy/comfy to walk in! I think after I break them in a bit more they will be super comfy!
